Cut off one head, two more shall take it's place... Go for the heart. The heart that is Ike Perlmutter.

DC Rebirth looks pretty good so far. Superman has had a solid run ever since Geoff Johns started writing, and the Truth story arc was pretty good too. Superman Rebirth was a bittersweet closing chapter.

I've read a Suicide Squad volume where they go against a rogue branch of the League of Assassins. They're just an ISIS rip-off. I read it just to see how they screw up with the social commentary. There wasn't any, nice action, and I didn't expect to get emotional over Reverse Flash's death.

And holy shit is the Wonder Woman Omnibus by George Perez amazing. Makes me weep further for what we are getting in the movies. Funny how just the first issue has enough material for a two hour movie.

I...am intrigued. Imagine an agoraphobe having to zip through the cold, dark vastness of space with nothing but the thin force field of a power ring protecting them.
It's why Power Ring choose her. Her crippling fear is what the ring feeds off of.

Alternate universe Green Lantern Rings are just pure evil that way.

Also, looks like they are laying the groundwork for showing that there is something wrong with Captain America, after he got de-aged. In the recent Avengers comic book, several of the characters are asking what is wrong with CA, that he is more intense and not the CA that they knew before...

I don't like HYDRA Cap either, but let's not condemn Spencer for changes he didn't make: Rick Remender was the one that established Joseph Rogers as a wife beater.

From what I recall, Joseph had been established as an alcoholic for decades, but the abusive part came in only a couple years ago.

In our out of date comic recommendation we have Demon Knights from DC. Starring Etrigan the demon, in the dark ages of Europe mixed with fantasy elements and Arthurian legends.

Lady...I mean Sir Ystin confirmed for the best character on the book.

Shocker. Cap has been revealed to be mind controlled. Where are all the idiots who complained that this was as bad as a second shoah? Right, they only read comic snippets on social media.

Wasn't there a whole thing where they justified his being part of Hydra with a series of flashbacks to a nice Nazi woman?

Because no one has ever retconned or back peddled a comic book storyline based on backlash or sales.

Steve isn't mind-controlled.

Technically.

Reality was rewritten by a HYDRA-aligned sentient cosmic cube (this is why I love comics), so now Steve was always HYDRA.

Reality warping, not mind control.

Its pretty clear this was always the plan, and not a response to backlash.

Marvel isn't really impressing me. I don't happen to have a fundamental issue female person inheriting the iron man mantle but in generally it feels like they are relying on shock value to create drama and political correctness to portray heroes as good and villains as bad. The whole thing just seems messy and forced.

Compared to DC Rebirth, ANAD Marvel seems to be trailing far behind.

One of Marvels execs donates to trump apparently, so it doesn't surprise me that a fair number of their comics are clumsy or forced. Saddening though.

A Marvel CEO donated a million dollars to a U.S. Veterans charity held by Donald Trump.

Then Tumblr and twitter screamed holy hell.
