"Chaos" - Part 7

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Artists: Agustin Padilla and Marcelo Di Chiara
Colorist: Carrie Strachan

Reviewed by: Matt Schorr

    The Mephistos are starting to risk becoming silly. Every infected person is constantly muttering to him or herself about being "his wrath." Some people even outright scream it. And yet, they still manage to practically sneak up on people. Take the gentleman on this issue's plane. When we first see him, he's muttering the same phrase over and over, disturbing everyone around him. Did no one notice this oddball muttering to himself when he got on the plane? Assuming this plane left Metropolis, was no one aware that people muttering to themselves were attacking everything in sight? Or let's assume this fellow kept quiet until now. Why would he start muttering to himself in order for people to notice before attacking? Wouldn't it be more effective to just start killing people?

"Justice Lords Beyond" (The Return of Wonder Woman): "Regime Change"

Writer: Christos Gage
Penciller: Dexter Soy
Inker: Dexter Soy
Cover: Khary Randolph & Emilio Lopez

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    When I learned that this was the last issue of JLB 2.0, I wasn't upset so much as disappointed. It's been a great run, with much to be happy about. The disappointment stems from yet another fan favorite, all ages, old-school read taken from the list of offerings for readers who wouldn't heroes that actually at like heroes. The last page is very fitting, as the JLB reminds us what their connection is truly all about: friendship, loved ones, that make for a diverse and unique family. Batman Beyond 2.0 is still on the racks, so we might be entertained further of the JLB there, but I'm hopeful that we'll see them again before too long. Christos leaves abruptly, as the story indicates, and with plot-lines dangling that may never be resolved. What of Lord Superman and Jax-Ur? Will Wonder Woman ever reconcile with her son? Can the Justice Lords really be gone for long, if not for good? All good story-lines that may never see completion, but that is also what made the title old-school; it felt that it was never-ending, it never let one catch his breath for long, and now that the ride is over, the longing to be winded is nearly unbearable.

July 21, 2014: Geoff Johns Confirms No DC TV and Movie CrossoverPrint

Dawn of Justice Appearing at the Television Critics Association panel this week for "The Flash," Geoff Johns confirmed that there will be no crossovers between the DC Comics characters on TV and the ones in movies...

    "You'll see a lot of DC universe characters [on The The Flash and Arrow]. You won't see Batman or Superman. We're on production on "Batman v Superman" now. So you'll see characters like The Atom or Firestorm, but no not Batman or Superman right now [on TV].

    It's a separate universe than film so that the filmmakers can tell the story that's best for film. While we explore something different in a different corner of the DC universe. We will not be integrating the film and television universes."

July 21, 2014: Tom Taylor Looks at the Future of Earth 2Print

Earth 2 #26 "Earth 2" writer Tom Taylor spoke with Newsarama.com about the future of "Earth 2", and moving forward with co-writer Marguerite Bennett as the title ties-in with the World's End weekly event. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Nrama: Let's talk about Val-Zod, because this last issue, we saw his origin and learned a little more about him and saw him motivated to save the world. Can you clarify something from his origin? When he was rocketed away from Earth 2's Krypton, he mentioned that he was in one rocket, Kal-El was in another, and then Kara, or Power Girl, was in the third rocket. But then he said, "and another..." Were there three rockets, or four?

    Taylor: There were four.

    Nrama: So there's still another Kryptonian out there.

    Taylor: There is another one out there. Who knows if they made it?

    But there's definitely four.

    Nrama: Getting back to Val-Zod, what were you implying that he saw in Dr. Fate's helmet? And why the choice to not show it?

    Taylor: I think he says it when he takes off the helmet and he says he doesn't want to be the orphan of two worlds. I think you can sort of surmise what he saw there, without us needing to show too much.

    Partly, it's because I think it's nice and elegant to do it that way. Partly, it's because we had 30 pages and over 30 characters, to get our origin across. So part of it was because I wanted to do it that way, and part of it's because we didn't have any more pages to do that anyway.

    I liked what Jimmy said in response, that he had this speech that he was going to inspire the hell out of him with, and really motivate him. And Val-Zod's like, yeah, sorry... magic helmet. That's the thing that did.

    And I think Jimmy, too, has been such a great character. People have really responded well to him. He's fun, you know? Anyone who can spank Batman like that has a place in people's hearts.

    And I think the fact that Val isn't grim and dark and gritty - you know, he doesn't want to tear the whole world down like everybody else around him - really puts him in a different place, too. And in a similar fashion, Lois as well. Obviously, there's more that she's prepared to do. She's a realist.

    But having such a wide-eyed innocent who really just wants to help is great.
