NOVA #2, Justice League of America, Age of Ultron!

 Justice League of America #1. Writer Geoff Johns has taken his talents to another project that is very much exciting. The Justice League of America is created so that the United States no longer will be dependent on a team 20,000 miles away on a satellite with no loyalties aka The Justice League. This team of super heroes includes:Hawkman, Katana, Stargirl, Vibe, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern (Simon Baz), Green Arrow, and Catwoman. During the first issue the plot mostly revolves around Wonder Woman’s Ex “boy toy” and long time friend Steve Trevor and Director of the whole operation Amanda Waller. They are creating this team of super heroes to keep the Justice League in check and act as a balance of power. The heroes themselves have shady pasts of their own and are seen as issues that can conflict with the team like Catwoman and her past for example. They also bring along for the ride Martian Manhunter aka J’onn J’onzz who has since recently had it out for the original Justice League. Also Simon Baz the new Green Lantern is included with the crew who was arrested for suspicion of terrorism because of his muslim ethnicity (see Green Lantern Special #0). Stargirl and Vibe are the young members although Stargirl has more experience than Vibe. Vibe is an eighteen year old latino name Francisco “Paco” Ramon whose powers are to create vibrations and shatter dimensions with them. This power is unique because it will be very useful for enemies with dimensional powers. I have high hopes for this young member. Stargirl aka Courtney Whitmore is a high school student with a a powerful staff called The Cosmic Staff. She is very attractive and very good at saving lives with Waller reporting to Steve of over a hundred incidents. Although she seems perfect she sleeps at night with the light on leaving clues of distress. My thoughts on this series is very hopeful. Geoff Johns did wonders with the original Justice League and the team looks very close matched to the original league. But as I read it feels a lot like a suicide Squad more and more. I can only hope it will not disappoint.

Superheroes are forced to hide like rats. Captain America is tarnished and Spiderman helpless. Meanwhile Agent Natasha Romanov aka Black Widow tries to see if she can find a solution amongst Nick Fury’s secret bases. This event series will be made into 10 parts and is separate from the MARVEL NOW universe.         Image

NOVA #2: Oh boy am I excited for this series. Sam Alexander inherits the title previously held by his father of a Nova Corpsman, The series has only two issues so far so not much has happened but what has happened is very substantial. Sam is starting believe the kooky stories of his fathers corpsman days of flying and exploring planets. They are no longer stories when Sam meets Rocket Raccoon and Gamora the deadliest assassin. Sam can no longer ignore his destiny as a Nova and puts on the helmet to fly away. He flies away high enough to reach the moon where he meets the Watcher and the second installment ends there. I am loving this series because it seems very down to earth for youngsters and not exactly serious. This comic is perfect for the beginning comic book reader who wants to get started on a good series or for that little person you know.

 I hope you liked the reviews. Im sorry I havent posted in a while but I am working on that. Read comics and be happy.

Batman#17,Green Lantern New 52, Deadpool MARVEL NOW!

Batman #17 Conclusion of Death in the Family- With the end of the Night of the Owls story arc it made room for the Death of the Family story arc which was a crossover thriller from beginning to end. With writer Scott Snyder running the show the story was made from not just Batman but also Batgirl,Batman and Robin,Catwoman,Detective Comics,Nightwing,Red Hood and the Outlaws,Suicide Squad, and Teen Titans.                      

   ImageWith such an extensive list of crossovers it was a readers delight to read the Jokers newest plight from so many angles. The conclusion also showed another side of the Joker and his relationship not just with Batman but also with Bruce Wayne himself which was very interesting. The story really went on about explaining Batman’s timeless predicament of not killing the Joker and even hints at the Jokers real name. Batman also struggles with the danger of having so many allies and how it can make him more vulnerable to his enemies as the Joker happily points out. The story arc is very much worth reading if you are a fan of not just Batman but also Gotham’s mightiest bat family.

Deadpool MARVEL NOW!- It is not a reboot! Marvel keeps telling us it is not a reboot of the series but more of a starting over… or under. Deadpool is back in his first issue with Marvel Now! fighting none other than our 32nd President Franklin Delano Roosevlt who is a little upset with the country’s state of the union. Deadpool is more of the same as ever wise cracking and being immune to all damage on his body. What I like about most from the character is his sarcasm and the ability to break the fourth wall to speak with the reader and confuse the rest of the characters. Deadpool is later confronted with the ghost of Benjamin Franklin who he soe not know wheter it is a ghost or a hallucination of his unstable mind. Deadpool later fights Teddy Roosevelt at the zoo and he is later forced to arrive at the mansion of Doctor Strange. This comic will easily become one of my most favorites and is a must for all Deadpool fans.

Talon,Superior Spiderman, Amazing Spiderman

Comics I bought today: Talon#4 a hero born from the underground organization of Gotham known as the Court of Owls. I love owls. Superior Spiderman #3 Following Peter Parkers death and Otto Octavius taking over his body, arguably the best thing to happen to spiderman comics. And I got Amazing Spiderman #700 2nd print detailing the death of Peter Parker and his body switch with Doc Ock I bought it for sentimental reasons. I spent about 15 bucks. Read comics they’re fun.
