well...i haven't posted for a few days. sorry?

the War of Light has essentially begun. so far, there's Green (and a Blue) vs. Red vs. Yellow Lanterns. Violet is forming in GLC. Orange is coming very soon...(Agent Orange, anyone?) word on them yet.

Final Crisis 4 of 7 was pretty freakin criz-nazy. Submit was pretty cool too. Resist comes out next week. then i have to wait until the 26th!!!for 5 of 7 to come out. oy.

The Flash ends in Dec with 247 (only 2 ish away!) and doesn't get squat til April with Rebirth 1 of 5/6?. speaking of which, does Rebirth have 5 issues or 6? nowhere have we found out...we have to wait until Jan 15th-ish to find out.

so, things are picking up speed, headed towards a conclusion, or somewhere inbetween. Detective Comics (DC) Comics rules!

btw: i am now the unofficial number one fan of Jay Garrick! woot for the first Flash and his Mercury helmet!

69 reasons.

there's 68 days left until 2009 comes. January 2009 will be the 69th anniversary of The Flash's first appearance. so, i'm gonna do a sortof countdown to that event with 69 reasons why The Flash is awesome! approximately one per day, starting today.

reason 69:
-his costume.

whether it be the classic Mercury helmet of Jay Garrick, the sleek boot wings of Barry Allen, or the lightning trailing off of Wally West as he runs, there's no doubt that his costumes are the best!

reason 68:
-time travel.

*technically, there was a hiatus from 1951-ish to 1956, as the golden age slowly led to the silver age.
**another hiatus. 1987-2006, 2007-2008. also, 247 is the (second****) last issue in the series (Dec). next Spring, The Flash: Rebirth will come out, followed by whatever relaunch of the series.
***the series was actually called "The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive".
****January 2006 was supposed to be the last issue of The Flash (230), until they relaunched it after killing off Wally's protege. now, they're killing it yet again at 247 this December. next Spring, The Flash will finally be made right!

The End of Heroes (preview)

Issue 1 synopsis:
The story opens at Bruce Wayne’s 75th birthday party, as he is brutally murdered by an unknown assailant. The current heroes of the time, the Justice Titans, who are actually the children of the old guard, are finishing up on a recent mission. However, three of their number stayed behind at their HQ just in case something came up. They don’t stand a chance. Tempest, daughter of the late third Aquaman, Red Arrow, daughter of the late Roy Harper, and Darkstar, son of the late Donna Troy, are martyrs for the first serious mystery this team has had to encounter. There is only one active hero remaining of the old guard, and protecting him may prove to be more of a hassle than they had wished for!

Issue One.
Caption: Thirty years from now.
Caption: Give or take a few.
Caption: Metropolis. Population: 850,000.

Caption: You can call me...The Hero.
Caption: Catchy, huh?
Caption: I represent a group of heroes that are the last five heroes on the whole planet.
Caption: Go ahead. Let that sink in.
Caption: I could start out by telling you the story of how I acquired my powers. Or how weird it is being the son of Superman and Wonder Woman. Or how Batman raised me.
Caption: I could even take you back to when this whole mess began.
Caption: When the murder of the heroes you’re probably a little more familiar with began. Or, as we here in the year 2040 call them, the "old guard".
Caption: Instead, I’ll begin with the murder that hit me the hardest. I was young when Kal-El and Diana died...
Caption: No, this one hurt much worse...
Caption: The day Bruce Wayne died.
Caption: Gotham City. The year 2039 AD.

Issue 3 synopsis:
Everything the Justice Titans have laid on the line may be jeopardized as Jason Todd’s life is endangered! Meanwhile, the Hero and the Bat-Man, the dynamic duo of the future, come across a startling revelation in their investigation of the string of murders...

Issue 4 synopsis:
The Challengers of Doom come to earth to help with the investigation, leading to their deaths. The murderer is revealed just in time as the Justice Titans save the very last hero of the old guard...or is he the last? Everything has lead up to this!

The Flash/post-Rebirth.

obviously Barry Allen is going to be The Flash after The Flash: Rebirth is over.
but, what about Wally West? Jay Garrick? Bart Allen?
basically, Barry will be Central City's Flash. that's a given.
but, Wally will be Keystone City's Flash, in a sort of Green Lantern way (Hal/John as the GL's of 2814, Kyle/Guy as "Honor Guard" on Oa.)
Jay/Alan Scott/Ted Grant will all retire/die/time-travel. i don't care, just get them OUT.
Bart may or may not come back in Legion of 3 Worlds...if he does, either keep him there as Impulse, or bring him back as Kid Flash. he can join the Teen Titans again, be Barry's sidekick, etc.
Wally's kids (Iris/Jai) are going to school like normal kids now. maybe have them become de-powered...(?)
Wally/Linda stay married/happy/ALIVE.
Barry/Iris (not Wally's daughter, his aunt) get back together, stay married/happy.
IF Bart comes to 21st century as KF, have him get back with Valerie Perez, stay dating/happy/alive...
have Geoff Johns/GOOD artist (NOT Scott Kolins) stay on The Flash for a long time...

that's today's ramblings. tomorrow, i'll post a preview of my rough draft of my comic book storyline!


brand-freakin-new! i have a blog...

i'll be posting ideas, writings, thoughts, and whatnot here...enjoy.
