I like the direction DC took on most of their characters. So far I like this new Dc 52 Superman but I need to start to see more of Clark Kent and I need a nice story arc to get going here. Flash's comic has been awesome and Barry Allen is far from boring like his original comics in the past were. I love all these new abilities he has and I love the new portray of his villains. His villains look great now and I love that they actually have abilities. Batman is always good but seriously I can't wait to find out what happens when Nightwing, Tim Drake, and Jason Todd find out Damien killed as Robin. Its gone be f**king great because Bruce gave Jason Todd shit about killing but then lets Damien continue as Robin. Its gone cause some serious trouble in the family. The JLA was well done and I love how Hal Jordan finally go his due in JLA issue 12. Hal Jordan taking the blame for all the troubles the team had shows you how that character changed and developed. By the way Hal Jordan hiding him and Sinestro within a green lantern ring is classic Hal Jordan from the way back.
Green Lantern with the Third Army is gone be interesting after that story arc is done. No way the Guardians will be the main leaders of the Corps after that is done. I am gone agree with most people that Kyle and those other Lanterns he is with will somehow become the Guardians of the Corps when its all done. Either them or Hal Jordan and Sinestro. No way any of the Guardians should stay after betraying the Corps. Unless they get a whole new set of Guardians from the ones locked away with the first Lantern.
I have seen the covers for Marvel Now and the changes to the books have me curious as to what happens in Avengers vs X-Men 12. By the way how the hell did Avengers vs X-Men go from being about Hope to Cyclops? I hate that along with the death we got in Avengers vs X-Men 11. Emma Frost's horrible ass should have died instead.

Then you have Cable and the X-Force that shows a regular colossus(no juggs),But Cable has been healed By hope completely but now he has an eye patch and STILL missing an arm which makes NO SENSE. Like why fix this character to cribble him the SAME WAY months later. and they are fugitives saving the day while on the run Like the New Avengers during Civil war.
Marvel now has a LOT to explain and havent even started.

LOL surprised to see you actually talk about things you dislike with X-Men comics.

Now Cyclops view to me is actually the best than any other X-Men due to time. Time has taught them about the road they were on and if he DIDNT make those decisions the whole mutant race would have died out. Thats why I said him being younger he was naive. Even Xavier was naive. Hell he was kicked out of his OWN X-Men.lol That whole peaceful thing would have got them absolutely annihilated during decimation, necrosha, second coming, messiah war, fear itself and Curse of the mutants. There was just NO way that thought process would have helped them. They gained powerful friends(Magneto, Namor, Danger, Sebastian Shaw, Emma, and Frenzy) that if he stuck with the whole"urr durr we be mutants and no matter what people do to us we gonna protect them" Thats just crazy. Think about it ,Cyclops had his whole race wiped out, No help from "friends"(avengers or FF), enemies found out about the decimation and wanted to finish them off, and NOT KILLING would have sent them all to thier graves. Cyclops to me has shown he is the best leader in Marvel over the years. He was a boy and thought as a child then he grew up and realized Xaviers dream wont help the race survive.

LOL once again Xman I actually agree with you. Keeping most of Batman's history intact was horrible with the 5 years. Its like all the Robins were all in the Robin role for one year. I don't see how all of Batman's history fits in 5 years. Don't get me started on Action Comics either. As a Superman fan that book has let me down. Yeah I noticed too that the Wonder Woman in JLA and in her solo book do seem different for some reason. Hal Jordan wasn't on the JLA and with Sinestro at the same time. It may seem that way but you have to remember JLA started 5 years ago and we saw them grow over 5 years in the JLA book. Justice League 12 ends with them in the present finally and Hal Jordan left the JLA before everything with Sinestro happened. Captain Marvel has been f**king horrible. God what a horrible abortion. The Wolverine comics are back to being shit again with this stupid clone crap and thank god Marvel is canceling either Thunderbolts or Dark Avengers because both are horrible. The Incredible Hulk comic is also crap of course.
Okay now that I got that out my system let me talk about good books.
On the Marvel side the new Gambit series has been awesome. I never liked him but that completely changed with this series. Love Rogue finally being focused on in X-Men Legacy as she is my favorite female hero. All the Spiderman comics have been good and I loved seeing Spiderman meet Ultimate Spiderman in Spidermen. I am interested to see how Avengers vs X-Men 12 ends. I liked the one on one fights in AvX. Daredevil vs Psylocke was my favorite and screw Marvel Daredevil won that fight. Other comics for Marvel that have been good are the Avengers titles, Venom, Ironman, and more.
On DC's side alot of the new 52 comics besides the few bad ones have been good. The zero issues have been great as well. Love the origins for Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Supergirl, Guy Gardner, Bruce Wayne, Wonder Woman (Ironic since the issues before this zero issue became bad), and more. I love the fact in the Superman and Supergirl comics I am getting issuses on how Krypton was like. Superman's main comic has been good but its not on par with Smallville. Loved the arc with Helspont and the Predator like creature among many other great issues. Flash has been good learning about new abilities he has, his backstory, his villains which have been changed for the better, and more. Alot of good stuff DC has here.
Smallville Season 11 comics- F**king awesome. Enough said.
Non Marvel/DC Comics: Here are some other good comics that are excellent. Morning Glories, Walking Dead, American Vampire, Planet of the Apes, Star Wars Darth Vader and Ghost Prison, Star Wars Darth Maul: Death Sentence, Last Phantom, Bloodshot, Warlord of Mars, and others.

X-23 said she didnt want to go with Wolverine and be a kid, but she RATHER be with the Avengers and be a kid? WTF. She traded one school for the next. Again that makes no sense either. Now i like X-Factor simply because they have thier own thing going on seperate from the x-men, i like having options.
what happened to scarlett witch giving all mutants thier powers back? in childrens crusade she was soooooooooooooooooo hurt and sorry about that and said even if it takes forever she would undo the damage but the only person she fixed was Rictor. and what happened to Layla? she had the same power to give mutants back their powers? AND Sage also. Marvel is going through their shitty times as usual. when the comics are REALLY good a year later Marvel will screw it up. I love bad ass Cyclops now im sure they are going to screw him up also.
also why does Thor have swords now? ugggghhhhhhhh come on Marvel. When Marvel NOW starts im going to be with DC until they straighten up.
