  1. I gotta say guys, I did love JLA. Hal being stupid is just the cherry on top for me. The character is canonically dumb as a brick. On the other hand, you did convince about Superman. I thought it was ok, but it's actually terrible.

    1. I just don't like that the story is going nowhere on top of it being delayed so many times.

    2. I agree that the delays are hurting the book a lot, but I still think it's going somewhere. Plus, that scene that they gave Superman was a really great character moment and Wonder Woman absorbing the power of all the Greek Gods is just plain cool.

    3. I agree with the Superman bit, that was pretty cool.

  2. Re: ETERNAL - The only twist they could pull that MIGHT be a little unexpected would be if Mother's Robin wasn't Harper but HARPER'S BROTHER (dun! Dun! DUNNN!)

    1. It would be hilarious if Cullen was Mother's Robin, but Batman refused him because he was a lazy layabout!

  3. Just got to the end of the podcast. Kyle Rayner punching the shit out of Tigorr >>>>>>>>> Twentieth Tony the Tiger joke.
