Jonathan Hickman would be a great choice to kickstart the Legion again. He was already writing the Avengers as a Legion-like space faring team. He does tend to meander a bit, though. This one time I...

I gave up last year after the Legion of Superheroes was canceled. I checked back in last month to see the horrible end of Earth 2. That was a depressing mess. Picked up the Legion Convergence issue...

I've been taking a break but just caught up on the entire run of Mighty Avengers. It reads more like a Defenders book, but I just love everything about it. Al Ewing is really hitting it out of the...

Couldn't have said it better myself. The current editorial house style is 10,000x's darker than the old 1980's Grim 'n Gritty period. Whatever small bit of creativity anyone happens to introduce is...

I haven't checked in for a few months but curiosity got the better of me and I decided to see what's going with DC.

Whoo hoo! Hopefully the team will get the Lobo treatment and this incarnation of Teen Titans will be wiped from continuity. But they'll probably rebrand as Teen Titans 3000.

No, you are correct. The Defenders was a loosey-goosey "non-team" until Steve Gerber became the writer. Englehart was a star writer on the Avengers during the 1970's, but nobody seemed to make an...

I don't have anything against the concept of the reboot itself, merely the execution of what has gone down since. I'm frankly amazed that DC hasn't learned their lessons from the post-crisis reboot...

To me, Wanda has always been the heart & soul of the Avengers, just as Jean Grey is to the X-Men. I love that she is a central focus of nearly all the stories so far. I'm also glad to see Wanda &...
