  1. "Boom goes the dynamite!"

  2. I think people might have forgot that Valkyrie was supposed to be part of the Hulk Marvel Legends (BAF Fing Fang Foom) originally. Which I think is more of the reason behind her inclusion as one of the three and not the Thor movie. They probably already started her when putting together that wave, so this is another cost cutting method. Have to say getting two figures that have already been done is a bit of a bummer. They look good and all but would much rather had figures that haven't had the legends treatment (how hard is it for them to make a modern Luke Cage to finish off my New Avengers, sheesh). It'll be interesting to see who they pair them up with for the two packs, I'm not even sure Hasbro has explicitly said the that the three they would choose would come from the line up we saw. Which wouldn't be terrible in my opinion, as I would love to see a modern (Bucky) Captain America to go with Black Widow. Oh well, guess just have to wait an see, as they always say, more money for the price hike on DCUC I guess.
  3. FYI... all these signs were not put up until Saturday morning and even then had to be changed, because if you notice the one that says "all Comic Con items will be available on MattyCollector.com Aug. 3rd" is in accurate, on Sunday they put had to put a sign that said the same thing but with "except Gleek" added on" Which was par for the course of the madness and list of running changes that went on this year at Con. It was just ridiculous, but ultimately as they say "any press, even bad press, is good press" because it's increasing awareness on Mattel's product and online store. So I guess it really shouldn't surprise me that they wouldn't bother to plan to have enough stock or bother to better control the limits each day to have enough for all the days of Con, because look how much free press for their website they've gotten because they "sold out" at Con and now they can direct people to their website to boost their numbers and then show those numbers to the higher up bosses to justify the site and the evil cycle of manipulation continues. I am still failing to see how anybody has countered what Jay has said. What "inaccuracies" or "falicies" are even there, that detract from what the man is saying. I am seeing two points that you can contend with: 1. That Mattel didn't announce that they were sold out. It has been pointed out that Matty put up a little cardboard sign on Saturday to note that the gleek figures were gone. However, has anybody been able to prove where that sign was. If it was up the entire time. If it was up at multiple locations. If it was viewable to everyone... etc etc.. A 6 inch piece of cardboard at comic-con doesn't prove that Mattel told everyone that they had sold out. 2. That fans might have expected to find gleek in their set when they opened it later It has been pointed out that matty announced that gleek would be included separately in a little baggie on their facebook page or whatever. However, does anybody have proof that this announcement was read by everyone? We have to remember that not everyone is a serious nerd when it comes to this stuff. Not everybody spends day and night looking for info on this kind of thing. Mattel didn't put out this news to everyone, they put it on their facebook page, from what I have heard. Sure, I knew he was being included separately, and even if I didn't, I would have checked out my set after I got it just to see if it was in good shape... but that doesn't mean everybody else did. I am sure lots of people trusted that they were buying an item from the biggest toy company in the world, and waited til later to check them out. They were at the SDCC and wanted to spend their time doing con stuff. The picture at the con showed gleek and the twins in one pic, not the twins in a box and gleek in a bag. In regards to your first point: An array of visual evidence of 'Sold Out' signs clearly posted in Mattel's store area: (Pics originally posted by Studmuffin & Veebee on Fwoosh) Obviously, not all of those are Gleek-related, but all together, they help give a broader scope of the whole scene. In the pics with the MOTU figs, you can see that they had professional looking printed 'Sold Out' signs/stickers that got slapped on the menu board, whereas with the Wonder Twins, they made a seperate little hand-made sign to specifically designate "GLEEK Sold Out" as opposed to "WT & Gleek Sold Out". If you look closely in the second pic down, you can see there's actually two signs by the WT's. The first hand-made one that was posted when Gleek sold out and then the second professional sticker over the Twins when they sold out later. You can see where all the signs are. They were viewable to everyone. People were informed. In regards to your second point: My main issue here is that in Jay's editorial tirade, he implies a lot of people were expecting them to be --not inside the main WT box-- but somewhere in between the outer plain white protective slipcover case and the main box. ..... ...really??? Every press release and announcement said they were poly-bagged separately, not inside any box at all--who didn't know that?!? Like 'sHa_ckwave' put better than I could have, who goes through all the trouble, pain, and hassle that it takes to even get to the counter, spends that much money, and then doesn't check to make sure they got everything? I don't even leave the freakin' drive-through at McDonald's before making sure they didn't forget something, there's no way I'd just "trust" the schlubs behind the registers at the booth to get it all right. I mean, I'm not heartless, I can sympathize with anyone who didn't get a Gleek they thought they paid for, but it's their own fault for not being more observant and some people need to learn how to take more personal responsibility and stop blaming others for their own mistake.
  4. I just wanted to thank Jay Cochran for the article and JayC for posting the article on the front page. Any time a company the reputes them self as a "collector friendly" or "collector minded" company and the screws collectors like this needs to be taken to task for it and in my opinion really owe an explanation and a APOLOGY (still waiting Mattel, stop blaming the collector or back pedaling and changing your story, just say hey, we screwed up). I'm not going to get into a long diatribe here (I already posted a long, long response on Matty's Facebook page hoping it would go those that matter) because frankly I'm pretty tired after reading all the post on this subject and I'm even one of the ones that went to Comic Con, waited in line Preview night to be turned away since I was Press, then wait in line all morning Thursday to be turned away and told I had to wait in a whole other line first to get a ticket to buy them, which I then did to get a ticket to wait in line Friday at 5pm to only be told the "sold out" of Gleeks. Long story, short after waiting and checking back Saturday and Sunday (I guess this was before they mysteriously found this box of Gleeks, which I don't buy at all, just like when they "sold out" of He-Man and Skeletor right before Beast Man was released) Anyways, I bought my Wonder Twins sans monkey, so at least I saved on shipping. I thought about speaking with my wallet and going with out altogether (and still am contemplating putting up my whole collection on eBay like I did with Master of the Universe after collecting became to much of a chore) but at least for right now I still want to at least support the 4 Horsemen and other artist who have worked to make this line that I love so much. But after 10 years of going to Con and actually getting each and every one of Mattel's exclusives from Man-Bat, to Grundy, She-ra, to even Keldor (and even their first He-Man statues way back in the day) this was the first year making the 2 hour drive back home with a frown on my face and empty handed, only to now go online and have salt rubbed on an open wound "with this found box" and even more the lack of any kind of apology or acknowledgment from Mattel for how poorly they handled the exclusives sale this year (lack of clear signs on how the process worked, i.e. the need for this "fast pass" ticket and where to get it, the poor control of limiting the amount to each customer, I saw people walking away with cases of Wonder Twins and He-Ro, some of which I talked to and found out were International vendors getting product to resell at their store, rude customer service people, when I questioned if they were going to get more Gleeks, they just said "look this is all we have, if you don't want it you can just get out of line and come back later and check I guess" and then had then she just rolled her eyes and sighed when I persisted to ask how they could be totally sold out only the 2nd day in and insisting she give me my "fast pass" back so I wouldn' t have to wait in that line again to check back tomorrow, poor planning, not having enough Gleeks to at least sell each day, I mean they ran out by Friday morning, that's only the 2nd official day of the Con, that's just ridiculous) So thanks, for the well written article calling into light this egregious customer service fiasco from a company that is trying to make a name for itself as collector friendly company (calling their website Matty Collector, and Toy Guru spouting off in every single interview how much they work to give the collector what they want, which he did when I interviewed him last year about the launch of the site and now after all their missteps that have made it more a boon for the scalper and not the collector makes me just want to scream.) maybe one day they'll accept responsibility (and stop blaming the collector for not getting to Con several hours early, then forgoing any panels or anything else, to wait in two lines, wasting a whole day to get the little blue monkey that they made for 2 cents in China and should have been packed into this exclusive set) and apologize to the people that have supported them with their money and even turned other onto their product with their enthusiastic fandom.
  5. If your looking to drop a sizable chunk of change on DC toys, I'd suggest the DC Direct 13 inch figures. They're pretty pricey, especially the ones that are out of circulation like the the first Green Lantern and Superman w Clark Kent clothes which you can find on eBay every now and then, and the ones that are still in circulation will still cost about $60 to $100 a piece, but boy are the worth it. I was never a big fan of the bigger scale doll sized figures, but once I started getting these I was hooked. Almost all the main JLA are out or coming out so with a good chunk of change like you got you could have a nice display collection in one big spending spree. That's my two cents.
  6. Oooooooo, where did the Knives come from the Deathstroke is holding? With a little extra sculpty they'd make great knives for a new X-Force Warpath custom.
  7. I don't really read comics anymore, but I usually hear bits and pieces about what's going on, and this was my impression when I saw this. There's a Lantern Corps for every color of the rainbow, and it reminds me of the way Smallville kept bringing up different kinds of kryptonite to add new behaviors for Clark. Definitely not very original or "outside the box" thinking. That doesn't mean it can't or won't be cool, but I just think they're not trying very hard. Ummm... Smallvile didn't event all the different types of Kryptonite the Silver Age comics did that. And having all these different color lanterns, all synicing with a universal emotion (or state of being), all could have been real hokey but in my opinion Geoff Johns has really knocked the ball out of park with all this and turned the Green Lantern mythos into something truely epic. And yeah, I see how the different lantern color of the month can seem a little tiring but I still think it's better then dragging on for years and years a slow sub-plot build up (third summers brother anyone) to something like Blackest Night. I read both Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps and they've just been wonderful, organic reads for me.
  8. I'm all over the Resolute figures, really digging Snake Eyes in particular, really nice mix/update of a classic. (Hope his sword sheaths at his waist like in the cartoon, thought that was a neat take and something to set him apart from the regular version) Hope we here more about these soon, would be nice to know when these are being released.
  9. That's a very good point and observation, and I bet the school board looks at it like that, but again, the situation was blown up by the cheerleader and her Mother, and now it's become an issue even BEYOND the faculties control. Every parent in that community would have to take this diplomatic and more positive approach to her Playboy past and maybe letting it be something more positive than negative in how she presents it to her cheerleaders. I doubt that's going to happen. I don't begrudge any of the parents that would take a negative position on this issue, that's all I'm saying. If I let my male ego take over, I would have LOVED to seen my daughters cheerleading coach was a Playboy centerfold or something, and would have attended every practice..with camera! Yeah, and that's what kind of makes the whole situation sad to me, but never the less this whole mess is legal matter since she signed morality clause. (which usually only looks at behavior from point of signing on, but can include past behavior if stipulated in the document, which I haven't seen so have no clue, but would matter if the fired Coach decided to pursue legal action.) I think really it's the cheerleader mom that sets the worst example coming across as just jealous and spiteful and teaching her kids if you can't get your way at least get even. Just sad.
  10. From Viper Hunter: "I'm only citing the issue of the girl who sent nude pics of herself by PHONE to her boyfriend, and then killed herself after he passed it all around the school, to demonstrate that moral and ethical issues DO have relvance and importance in our society. It's no more irrational to bring that up as an exmple of WHY people would prefer to not have questionable material interfere with a persons job and create unwanted controversy for them, than is is to just take the cavalier approach and pretned that this kind of stuff has absolutely no affect or influence on young peoples minds?" Sounds like the Coach that got fired could have been a positive influence on this girl, not give away your nude pics for free. I'm not sure why everyone just assumes because she posed for Playboy before this Coach is still pro-nudity or would in any be encouraging of this behavior in any of the students under her. I would think it would be just the opposite and she would encourage them to have fun being young and a cheerleader and how doing anything like that now can ruin any of that for them now. Again what until your older and make sure you get paid for it.
  11. Wow, what a sh&%ty situation. Personally I have no problems with nudity or the fact that she posed (she was a model, look her up at Model Mayhem.com) and it's not like she was posing for Hustler having a train ran on her by 6 guys, it's Playboy which in my book is classy and artistic, which is why movie stars and other pop culture icons go there when they're older and still want to prove the still got the goods. Which in most case they are cheered on for, with people saying "wow, good for her". Yet here's this poor girl being chastised for it, like they're all afraid she going to recruit these girls or something. Which frankly probably most of the girls are going to more likely end up on Girls Gone Wild then in Playboy, which honestly for a career cheerleader would be one of the best outcomes. Anyways I digress, who knows really if she would be corrupting these youths or not, I think posing for Playboy doesn't make it any more likely then the next candidate. But unfortunately it doesn't really matter what anyone thinks since it's a matter of law and she signed a morality clause, a legally binding agreement, and therefore doesn't have a leg to stand on. Kind of a dumb move on her part, guess she had a momentary memory lapse when they asked her to sign it. The really sh%#$tty part to me is that it really seems this family was out to get her because for a family that think nudity is morally reprehensible (come on people the human body is beautiful, especially the womanly form) then how did they even find her pictures online (under a different last name no less). A) the either they're hippocritics and have an online Playboy subscription or they were out to get this lady for not excusing the daughter absence keeping her of the squad and dug up what ever dirt about her they could find. So really whose teaching the kids the bad lesson here the woman who owned her own sexuality and posed naked in a well respected national publication or the parents who didn't get their way so decided to get even?
  12. One thing that I see as promising is that the episodes are airing on the Cartoon Network Adult Swim website versus airing on the Hasbro website. Why this is good is because the number of hits a particular page gets can easily be tracked. So I'm thinking Cartoon Network might be using this to gauge just how many eyeballs might possible watch a regular series on the TV, which I could easily see this ending up on as it's not really that "adult", which I mean in the ways Afro Samurai was with language, nudity, and excessive blood. When Snake Eyes took out the guards while infiltrating Storm Shadows island stronghold, yes he killed the guards but clones die all the time in the Clone Wars cartoon (come on folks do you really think kids are going to buy a War cartoon where people don't die anymore, the see the really thing on CNN now.) but we didn't see blood spurting from gashing wounds, so seems kinda tame in comparison and that's not me saying it should have all the blood, I think it was all handled very appropriately so far in Resolute. And that really the only thing that is "adult" about the series so far, is it's sensibilities. It's doesn't talk down to the viewer or spend time explaining every little thing too you, because you as viewer are grown up enough to figure some stuff out on your own and able to infer things from a tone voice or slight actions of characters. And as much as I loved the old show (have the DVDs and watch them all the time) I don't think anyone, kids included, will except a war/terrorism cartoon where no one gets shot or always manages to bails out of the plane in enough time, in fact it insults them as they are well aware of how the real thing plays out on CNN, at least in a cartoon they can be reassured the good guys are out there always trying to stop such horrible things from happening. That's my two cents. So here's hoping the website gets enough hits for Cartoon Network to see it would be financially sound to order up 13 regular half hour episodes for a full season so I can finally get that awful sigma six taste out of my mouth.
  13. Wow, YO JOE! Really nice update to this franchise. Now I wondering why'd Sigma six get a regular series and this is only 5 minute installments. Come on Cartoon Network shell out some cash and order up a regular length 13 episode season. Some said it didn't seem Ellis enough, which I think is a credit to him as a writer that it was more G.I. Joe then Ellis, although I did get some of his flavor in episode three on the youtube link, with the explanation of the particle cannon and using the earth's own ionosphere to bounce the beam where ever. That's some pure Ellis super science right there. Does feel a little rushed, but after the abortion that was sigma six, I'm grinning ear to ear to over Resolute.
  14. I actually found one, same price at TJ Max. Only one I aw there, thought it was just a weird fluke. Go figure.
  15. I guess "ouch" is right for my wallet since I like to have at least three of some characters (Vipers, Troopers, Crimson Gaurds, Iron Grenadiers, etc...), so three sets of the Cobra at around $50-$60 bucks a pop is gonna hurt, but your right still better then trying to get the individuals on eBay since 4 out of the 7 I would army build on (don't really do it with the drivers like the Lampreys and Strato-Vipers). Now I just have to find enough of them before all the scalpers get them. We are gonna be seeing a lot of Dr. Mindbenders on eBay, haha.
  16. Wow, I'm all over these. Probably buying a few of the cobra packs for my own little units of Night Creepers and Alley Vipers, two of my favorites. Now that some geared up pics have leaked, anyone hear any word on what the price point is gonna be on these? Have to get ready for the hurting it's probably going to put on my wallet, ouch.
  17. I just found Barda about a day age... finally. She looks great, no goofed parts or crappy paint jobs like I have noticed, mostly with the earlier waves. I got a classic version of with a stuck right arm at the swivel like the used too much glue. And have seen quite a few in the store with missed matched hands especially (something I always look closely at thanks to everybody's horror stories on here, so thanks guys/gals) and some really bad paint jobs (my Orion in the two pack with Lightray had super sloppy paint job with his hair color running all down his face but was hidden by his helmet so didn't know until I got him home, errrrr.) but over all with the last wave or two they seem to have gotten better with the QC
  18. that would be awesome.how about a general zod 3-pack? I think a Zod, Ursa, and Non three pack would be awesome but think something like that should be in regular release not an exclusive since we're talking about three main Superman villains.
  19. I really want a Jor-El and Lara two pack with a little baby Kal-El in his rocket ship pack-in!!! I think this would make a great exclusive as it's probably the only way we would ever get figures like this. How cool would it be to have a little set-up of the metaphoric birth of the super-hero genre.
  20. WooHoo! I just filled out my Pro registration online today, can't wait to get my hands on these. I guess it's time to start building my own Hall of Justice and Legion of Doom headquarters. Have to say the set looks better then I thought it was, so glad the included the bucket of water and eagle. Great choices in my opinion. I see both sides of the whole Gleek/No Gleek debate. Personally even though I live here in Cali so hitting up the Con is no biggie, think it does kind of suck (especially in something that is supposed to be a collectors line) that only those able to make it to the show can get everything, but on the plus side it is a minor character, if you can even really call him that, more of accessory in my opinion. (one I'm happy to get though) And have to say, this is the most jazzed I've been about and exclusive since Keldor (and to a lesser degree JLU Solomon Grundy) and think it's a great character choice for an exclusive, i.e. a popular character(s) but outside of the main DCU continuity. (Which I think along with really strong supporting cast characters like Alfred or Commissioner Gordon, or one I'd really love to see a two pack Jor-El and Laura with baby Kal-El in his rocket, make the best exclusives) And before everybody hits me up with PM's for me to pick them up some, I have to look out for my non-online friends here first (some of which got laid off recently so don't think they'll be going) but will be picking up extra ones (also depending on what the limit ends up being) and probably getting He-Ro as well, and what ever I'll have left over I'll throw up a post here for some things I am looking for in trade like few of Marvel Legends figures and DCUC figures too. Can't wait to activate my Wonder Twin powers!
  21. Wow if that's the box art and if they're really no extra feature then boy am I glad I have my Rhino sets. Really the only thing I think that would make me rebuy is if they came out with the Complete Series Remastered all in one Blu-Ray set. That'd be sweet.
  22. I was on the fence with these for awhile now (mainly because I'm a little butt hurt that Hasbro has all but turned their backs on Marvel Legends with some main characters still missing) but since we're not getting any Legends right now and I'm all caught up with my Joes and DCUC and have decide to forgo the news He-Man Classics had the money and decided to pick up a few (Iron Man, Black Panther, Spider-man, & Daredevil) and have to say their pretty some fun little guys. I actually went ahead and picked up some Wolverine: Origins toys just today as well (Brown Wolvie, Blue Wolvie, Gambit, Deadpool, & Maverick) and again I'm pretty satisfied. For the most part think the sculpts are good (Wolive is shorter then the others as he should be, which I worried about in this small scale), paint apps have been kinda bad though, had to look through a lot to find good ones, but did find them after some searching, articulation is decent (not quite to 25th Joe quality but no where as bad as the DC 3.75) They look pretty cool with my Joes in fact makes me really wish the DC 3.75 where up to snuff. I have both Atoms mainly to display with my DCUC and they just look so stiff and boring I think the thing that excites me the most is the amount of characters and some of their selections so far, some nice modern and classic choices, but do agree it's lacking in the villains so far. Which again is all kind of bittersweet as I wish Hasbro put as much interest in getting the same amount Legends out. Would have loved a modern Iron Fist, all they need was maybe a new forearm and lower leg sculpt then use most of the mold from the classic Fist. Oh, well. And yes the price is a bit much, mainly because I still remember when I bought 3.75 Joes for around $3.75 but Joes cost about $7 now and are supposed to go up to $8 soon anyways and when you look at the 6 inch lines, DCUC is like $10-11 now, same for Legends when they're out with some like the Hulk Legends going for $15. Just a sign of the times I guess, inflation is a #$#@#. I'll probably quite collecting all together one day, because yeah it's pretty expensive hobby and getting more so as time goes on, not just yet though so thought I'd give these a try for now at least. And with the amount of characters coming out (and no build a figure pieces) don't feel like I need to be a completest that I normally am. Maybe if they were to include a build-a-figure piece for a new 6 inch Legends figure I would be That'd be a great way to carry on the Legends line in my opinion, as long as they made sure it was some really deserving modern characters like new Captain America or Thor's new digs or some heavily requested classic characters, The Wrecker and the Wrecking Crew (although would really just want these in a bo set and be done), Baron Zemo II (I want my Masters of Evil people) etc...

    Target Sale

    now that just stinks as i kinda wanted the red hulk but didn't want a single on of those figures. I would have bought the wave just for the hulk at that price! Dude, check all the clearance isles at your target and the back end caps too. I found mine all over the toy section at couple different Targets and that was just on this past Thursday so you might be able to find some then pick the rest up on eBay as they'll probably be dropping on price there if there we're so many in clearance.
  25. @stop@ *****!!!!SPOILER WARNING!!!!****** @stop@ First let me say I enjoyed the Batman R.I.P but do think that it is totally silly that Batman does indeed "die" in Final Crisis instead and really negates the importance of the R.I.P storyline. The detective in me likes to think this all kind of came about because J.G. Jones is slow as molasses and Final Crisis #6 was probably supposed to come out the same time as the R.I.P finale, but since they didn't Morrison probably reworked the ending the R.I.P. a little, other wise as I suspect there might have been more of connection or at least as much of Morison ever really gives us, he's absolutely brilliant, just sometimes to full of himself as he likes to make the reader really work to get everything he's throwing out there. Which to me is a little self serving as he's the one getting paid to "work" not me, I'm the one shelling out the cash to be entertained. I don't mean I want "dumb" comics but come on, we know he can tell a great accessible story on many different levels as seen with All Star Superman @supes@ , so by comparison Final Crisis is a bit of a mess (maybe if he had the 12 issues with Crisis that he had with Supes it'd be a little better. Anyways I just chalk it up to another editorial fiasco in my opinion with DC, much like all the incongruities with the terrible (I want my money back bad and I'm kind of a whore for anything in comics) year long series Countdown that was supposed to lead into Final Crisis but instead negated pretty much everything in series instead. It just really seems like DC needs to get together editorial wise and really plan #$@# out because over the past year it really doesn't seem like one hand knows what the other is doing. Now about the whole "dieing" thing, again probably something to do with the whole editorial issues at DC and the fact I guess they're expecting us to read everything that comes out, but the Batman issues after R.I.P follow up with Bats after he was captured by Darkseid's goons in like Crisis #2 or #3 can't remember. Anyways they got him and have him hooked up to this creature called the lump having him live different false lives while the mine his memories, basically trying to distill down what makes Batman the bad ass he is, in order to program a whole mess of subservient Batman clones to be Darkseid's invincible army. Needless to say Bats is such a bad ass again he figures this out, kind of makes friends with the Lump creature and turns his own memories into a weapon and fries all the clones, pumping all the pain he's experienced, emotional, psychological, and physical into their clones until they start tearing out their own eyes. @bats@ Really. All this basically is what leads to the scene in Crisis #6 with the gun and Darkseid (probably one of my favorite scenes ever in comic) where will taking out Darkseid, ole' Bats is taken down by the Omega Sanction. Which again is kinda asking you to have been reading everything DC or at least Grant Morrison has written for them for a while now, in this case the Seven Soliders Mr. Miracle mini series to really understand what the Omega Sanction is or does. I guess the short of it is it makes the person struck by it live through progressively worse lives in short of a time loop or trap of sorts, an endless death of sorts. When Mr. Miracle got hit with it in the mini he got beating in a paraplegic vegetable state with his nuts removed by bolt cutters in one life, all while being caught in the event horizon of a black whole in another level. Grant's rework of the New Gods have them really operating on more then one plane of reality all the time though, with what's happen in one translating to other in various ways and can be all a little confusing. Anyways, so Mr. Miracle escaped the trap/loop of the Omega Sanction because, you know, he is the world/universe/multiverse's greatest escape artist. So taking all that in, there are several outs here to the whole "dieing" thing, even with seeing a body and all a lot better then a Jason Todd Superboy punched me back alive kind of resurrection. (I mean, couldn't just had him dumped in the lazerous pit with out first being punched back alive, kinda overkill in my opinion.) The body could have been one to bat clone soldiers they were trying to create or maybe event the Lump creature impersonating him he somewhat befriended or maybe it is his remains but his mind and soul (he was struck in the head and heart mind you) is stuck in the loop/trap of the omega sanction, perhaps even separating his mind and soul split up somewhere in the multiverse waiting to be found and brought back by the only person to live through the Omega Sanction Mr. Miracle. And hey, didn't Bats use to study with Mr. Miracle?!?! Maybe, he finds his way back himself. But we all know he's coming back (after all Dark Knight grossing nearly a billion dollars in theaters with a Bruce Wanye Batman pretty much guarantees he'll be back in cowl before part three comes out) but that's the fun of it all, the story of how it all gets back there instead of the same ole' Bruce fights (insert villain here) story or Joker does (insert heinous act here) and Batman wrangles with the idea of killing the Joker but is stopped by (insert Bat Family character here) story. I mean come on, how many times have we all read those. So to me, it'll be interesting to see where they go from here, there are a lot of clues that lead you to a lot of different opportunities. I also seem to remember rumors about the about the New, New Gods and the fifth world is all supposed to be about Gods as Men/Men as Gods kind of thing, with them inhabiting our reality as character like the Shilo Norman Mr. Miracle while inhabiting a higher plain of reality probably something more akin to the classic new Gods with the Morrison tweak, with some of the Gods rumored to me reincarnated/merged with some existing DC characters, but that was awhile ago and heard some of that got scrapped to, but maybe the the whole thing with Bats getting hit in the heart and head plays into that too. Who knows, but I look forward to reading and finding out. That's my two, well make it ten this has been kind of long, cents.
