The new Darwdevil is awesome. Always love me some Rob Garney artwork.

A card (like a Tarot or playing) ensorcelled to act as a limited extra-dimensional space containing 4 items (non-magical). Each item can be summoned and used by the holder of the card.

I'm still waiting for Whitney to put the mask on. That'd be cool.

I liked the Tarpit episode. They made the villain look good in his tar mode. The stuff with Earth2 Wells was interesting.

Maybe he'll come across Earth 2 Patty when they travel over that way. Then he'll realize how much she meant to him and try and patch things up.

And then it'll be revealed that he was being controlled by an evil, alien computer built by this mysterious guy named Metron.....

Tonight's episode was....meh.

Spoiler:

Bizzaro was...ok. The acting for the villain was a bit off, I thought. The opposite powers were pretty cool though, and the Kryptonite/anti-Kryptonite effects were good. The fight scenes were a bit mixed - some good stuff, lots of ok stuff.

And the scenes with Lord and Bizzaro were just kind of down right f%!$ing creepy. Dude came across as more of a perv than a super villain. The parts where he threatened the sisters was just more douchebag-ness.

The Adam thing was over way too quickly. And I cannot believe I just typed that.

Actually, it was mostly just badly written, I think. Who gets abandoned by their date the first time, then watches her get kidnapped by Bizzaro Supergirl the second time, then just lets said girl break up with you and walk away?!?

The little scene between Jimmy, Winnzone, and the whiskey was good.

Bizzaro Cat was awesome. As was seeing her return to normal.

sorry... can you explain? Isn't he a DC character?

Yes, he is a DC character. The new Fate is a young American of Egyptian descent. He's just starting medical school, so I'm guessing the intended age is mid-20s. Seems like they made a reference to the Pathfinder RPG. At least that's how I interpreted it.

Hey Aberzombie, have you read Supperman - Red Son yet? I borrowed it from the library and it was a fun read.

No, but I've heard many people say it was well-written and well drawn. I'll get around to it one day.

It's a fun series, so far. I just wish they'd give him the more traditional costume. Or at least some version of it.

And have shorter story arcs - but that's my general criticism of comics.

Right? "I used to admire you, then I found out my destiny was to be your greatest enemy?" WTF?

Back in the Wally West Flash series, where they seem to have pulled heavy elements of this story from, they do a much better job of explaining things.

In that story, Thawne is shown to be pretty much a psycho obsessed Barry Allen Flash fanatic. He finds the cosmic treadmill in an antique shop, and murders the guy who won't sell it to him (showing he's already unhinged). Eobard then uses his entire fortune to give himself Flash powers so he can use the treadmill, travel back in time, and meet Barry Allen.

Only he overshoots, finding himself in the Wally West Flash era. While touring the Flash Museum, he comes across the revelation of himself being the enemy of Barry Allen and, ultimately, being killed by his hero. He snaps. A lifetime of admiration curdles into hate. Hilarity ensues.

Kabrel of the Jade Crown - is a transmuter and artist who specializes in crafting Figurines of Wonderous Power. His signature item, the Jade Crown, is an elaborate headpiece carved from that precious stone, appearing as the interlocked forms of beautiful fey-like women. It is rumored each of the figures in the crown is a separate Figurine of Wonderous Power, and that each has a different, deadly ability.

What a day this has been
What a rare mood I'm in
Why it's almost like being in love
There's a smile on my face
For the whole human race
Why it's almost like being in love
There's a music of life; seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing for me
And from the way that I feel
When that bell starts to peel
I would swear I was falling, swear I was falling
It's almost like being in love

The music of life seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing just for me
And from the way that I feel
When that bell starts to peel
I would swear I was falling, swear I was falling
It's almost like being in love

Some interesting goings on…

Spoiler:
It seems they are going a very different route with Whitney Frost. I don’t recall her ever having super-powers before. I hope they’ll still give her the mask. I can see it happening if that thing on her face continues to grow.

I loved seeing Howard again! And doing science with Jarvis. And just being, well, a 50’s version of Tony – the parallels between the two characters are awesome.

I also liked seeing Sousa get his science on. It was a nice reminder of the “Science” part of the SSR.

My one theory now – if they are, indeed, going to have Peggy’s funeral in the Civil War movie, I wonder if they’ll take the opportunity in this series to finally reveal who her husband will be (we’ve got at least three candidates now), then have that character appear at the funeral in Civil War.

I loved last night's episode! And I have a new theory on the origin/identity of Zoom!

Spoiler:
It seems as though the writer is maybe a huge fan of Wally West and/or Mark Waid. The origin story they provided for Reverse Flash is very similar to the "Return of Barry Allen" story Waid did in the pages of West Flash lo those many years.

I'm glad Patty figured out he was the Flash, and the scene on the train at the end was pretty cool.

I liked the scene with Iris and her mom.

I like the expansion of Cisco's powers.

Well2 is still a dick, and it looks like he might be moving forward with his plans to betray Wally by stealing his speed.

Hunter Zolomon! WOOT! Could it be that he will eventually become ZOOM, then travel back in time to steal more speed? Will Caitlin inadvertently be the cause of Zoom's creation, and Jay's subsequent loss of speed power, all in an attempt to cure Jay? I can see her getting desperate, performing an experiment to give Hunter the same mutated DNA Jay has, so that she can heal Jay. But something goes wrong and...BOOM!....we get Zoom instead.

Adar Deval is an old shipwright who specializes in constructing luxury yachts/private house boats for very wealthy nobles and merchants. His fees are exorbitant, but with good reason. The wood he gets for his ships comes from the First World.

Years ago, he became good friends with a druid who had discovered a portal to the First World, which opened directly into one of that primal plane’s rare pockets of stability. His druidic ally helped Adar secure a friendly arrangement with the nearby First World denizens, wherein Adar was allowed to enter the portal and harvest fallen trees. Since then, Deval has almost exclusively used this wood in the construction of his vessels.

Northpoint Tower is the abode of Ulgar Icelunder. He's a magic-user, originally from the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. He had to flee when he was discovered practicing magic similar to the White Witches. The interior of his tower is said to be perpetually cold, even in the heat of mid-summer.

Watching the preview for next week, I look forward to seeing Bizzaro Supergirl. However, I think I finally pinpointed the one other thing I really dislike about Lex Lord - dude doesn't come across to me as evil or power-mad, he just seems kinda like a douchebag.

I can never forgive that movie for wasting Sir Ben Kingsley. Even if the way they wasted him was totally f*+*ing awesome.

Plus, Pepper getting super powers was just stupid*. Not to mention, the complete idiocy of they way they did Extremis.

*This opinion (which is correct, by the way) may be partially based on my utter and complete hatred of that extraordinarily creepy-ass Gwyneth Paltrow chick.

Woot! Awesome Martian on Martian action!

Spoiler:
The introduction of the White Martians was always one of those things Grant Morrison did that made me like him. The brutality and evil were there, along with the strategy and cunning. And the hate - hate for all greens.

I also liked the backstory on J'onn and the death of the other Green Martians. It....worked. Better than anything short of the old 4-issue miniseries from back in the 80's. I wasn't sure why they added a seconded daughter, until the end - the parallel with Kara and her sister was a nice touch.

And that knock down fight was pretty f~#!ing cool. Wish we could have seen some Martian vision. Maybe next time they could do something more telepathic.....

The stuff with Adam and Cat was pretty cool. If nothing else, it gave Calista Flockhart some time to shine. She's a pretty damned decent actress. And still kind of a hot chick.
