Favorite Origin of a Superhero Name


I love that Booster got so nervous that he accidentally said his football nickname then the president cuts him off before he can completely correct himself. Booster just decides to own the mistake and the rest is history.

Rip Hunter suspects something?


Granted Convergence seems to have been retconned some and technically Rip should know about WW/SM happening elsewhere before. But during the two part Booster Gold Convergence special he seems to have some theories he doesn't get to voice. I know I mentioned this before but I really feel this loose end needs to be addressed.

Amazon Sisters

I've always been a sucker for family stuff whether the family in question is blood or not. With Amazons this bond is pretty sacred especially between certain Amazons.While the Finch run has it's problems I did like this exchange:


Sisters are equal, they look after each other and when needed keep the other in line. Donna Troy was especially close to Diana (not sure where the current story is going with that) and basically was her sister in all respects. Diana reaches out to others whether they are Amazons or not to offer sisterhood. I liked the bond with Artemis always calling her little sister (*1) then I got to Simone having Diana say she doesn't even know if Artemis is her friend. What? Being a sister is supposed to mean something, it says you have faith in the other person and Diana apparently doesn't even trust that their close?



*1 This amused me because I'm not sure if the "little" had to do with Diana being younger--which I assumed she wasn't--Artemis being taller or her just teasing Diana.

Harper Row Despised?

I don't go on boards often but I thought she was a little more popular because of Snyder. I can understand getting annoyed with her after the thing in BaRE but is she truly that hated at large? I haven't read much of her, the twist I read about is grating though I'm mostly indifferent to her at the moment. I heard someone say she was too perfect so I guess that's the main problem? Beyond the "ideal sidekick" bull.

Animated Green Lantern Clips

I laughed far too much over this.

Guy doesn't get much love.

Predictions for Books

How I think I'll feel about the titles on my pulls list.

The romantic interest

I've recently heard about two characters getting together with very little build up and it made me think of something I noticed in comics for awhile.
