The video was a suicide note, left by a human-type Cylon, an Eight.

She'd made it shortly before killing herself; in it, she'd claimed responsibility for the recent incident involving Tallos, Doctor Baltar's supposedly tame pet reconstructed Cylon Centurion.

The discussion turned to Tallos' actions during the incident- why had it acted to preserve its own life?

It was a Cylon, after all- " death " for it just meant transmission to a Resurrection Ship.

Doctor Baltar made a suggestion.

It was partly that of the Six in his head. )

The human Cylons hidden in the Fleet feared it.

So did the humans of the Fleet, especially with the evidence that it- Tallos, as Baltar had named it with his sense of aptness- might still have some will of its own.

Though Baltar believed he'd straightened out that problem, Commander Adama still worried.

To test his worries, he had the human Cylon they knew about (the instance of the Number Eight model that Helo and Starbuck'd brought back with them from Caprica) taken out of the brig and put before Tallos, so that they could see if the reprogrammed Centurion would obey human orders even when another Cylon was there.

The moment Tallos saw the one Helo still called Sharon, he broke his bonds and threw aside those around him.

Everyone reacted unsurprisingly. )

He rebuilt a Centurion, because his ego was provoked.

He unveiled it to the Fleet.

He brought it online, and it took a knee.. before Sharon Valerii (not the one who was Boomer, but the one who would later be Athena), the tolerated Cylon prisoner.

That was a surprise. )

It's set in the 2004 remake universe.

It's set in Season Two, before Pegasus.

The opening makes that very clear.

It leads into plot all this series' own. )

WORLD'S FINEST was a ten issue miniseries that covered Batman and Superman's friendship over ten years in the post-Crisis post-Zero Hour DC Universe. For most of that decade, they thought their refusal to work together resulted in an innocent man dying. They find out they were wrong.

DAREDEVIL #353 is not when Foggy Nelson learned Matt Murdock was Daredevil, but it was the first time they discussed it. This was also the start of Karl Kesel's run on the book, and one of the times Marvel tried a "Daredevil lightens up a bit" post-Miller storyline.

You see everything in an outline? )

I am apparently bad at keeping track of days. It turns out today *is* the 22nd. I don't know why I kept thinking it was on a Sunday. But yes! today is villains day! :P

While I very much don't like the New 52 version, Harley Quinn was the villainess that got me to buy my first DC Comic!

And well...who could forget that time she worked at the Daily Planet as an advice columnist? )

In any incarnation of the Fantastic Four, under any writer, there will always be adventures. Always be exploring. Always some variant tale of Doom, the Negative Zone, Subterranea, Galactus, or the Skrulls.

And there will always be the underlying theme of family. After the great character cast expansions we've seen under Kirkman and Fraction, I was a little nervous about the latest reboot. What would happen to the Richards kids? To the rest of the Future Foundation? To Bentley, the Moloids, and Dragon Man?

Mister Robinson, to you I say... you had my curiosity. Now you have my attention.

In the past, I've posted from the original ending of Dick Grayson's Robin career, a long organic process of growth, told across both Batman titles, and primarily in the Teen Titans (Where Dick was a much more prominent character than in the Batverse at the time).

I've detailed telling the Titans, telling Bruce and Jason and putting on his Nightwing costume for the first time

And it struck me (and also following a post by [personal profile] lego_joker that uses one of the panels herein) that in the interests of fairness and comparison, I should post from a couple of other iterations of the story. Starting with the first revamp... such as it was.

Kon-El had a lot of "Awwww!" moments. One is SUPERBOY #70, when Superboy returns from Hypertime. (That was a short-lived attempt to bring back Multiple Earths in the mainstream DCU, used in SUPERBOY and THE FLASH.) While traveling alternate Earths, Kon-El found out Clark Kent was really Superman which... hurt his feelings.

Not a lot of people were reading the FF's book back in 2002, or if they were, they weren't talking much about it. The entire line was just coming off the doldrums of the nineties, and while there were a few good solid superhero books coming out around then - like the underrated Nicienza run on Thunderbolts - it was a quiet time at Marvel.

Which is a shame, because in the middle of this dead zone, you get one of the single greatest moments for Dr. Doom ever.

perletwo: Gim & Yera, the happy couple (legion - allons)
[personal profile] perletwo
OK, so the work on this primer kind of got away from me, mea culpa. But I now have it complete up to the current "The Culling" crossover arc.

In Part 1, we saw how Yera was duped into impersonating Shrinking Violet for months on end, during which time "Vi" secretly married Colossal Boy. Yera was exposed, Vi was rescued, Gim and Yera decided to stay married, and all was on track for them all to live happily ever after.

But first, they gotta tell Gim's parents...

in a story called 'Guess What's Coming to Dinner?' No, really. )

And you can tune in to Legion Lost for more Chameleon Girl, now that The Culling is wrapping up!

Welcome, s_d, to the tale of a sweet, modest little romance that bloomed in the background of the Big Universe Saving plots of the 1980s Legion of Super-Heroes. It's the story of a new-agey crystal girl and her mineral balance.



Blok and the White Witch.

We all change. That's what gives us life. )

So now they're both on inactive status. But maybe someday they'll rejoin the Legion, and be cute and lighthearted again. Hope springs eternal, right?

Although I hate Parallax, I've always had a soft spot for Final Night. I think it's one of the best crossovers DC ever had, which pitted Earth's heroes against a Sun-Eater bent on eating our sun. In the end, it was Hal Jordan, fresh from the Zero Hour debacle, who saved the day, by sacrificing himself. Say whatever you want about the idea to darken him, I think his sacrifice is one of the finest in all of comics. In fact, I found most of issue #4 deeply moving.

Welcome once again, to the major comics crossover event that made readers say, "...Wait, What?"

We're throwing comics at the wall here to see what sticks. (why yes, I have just finished a Portal 2 binge.)

Combining (broadly) the Doom Patrol and X-Force, two misfit bands of tragic mutants led by a rather unbalanced, near-sociopathic Futurist gets us...



Those misfits, misfits of science (ha)... )

14 1/3 pages behind the cut, 7 from X-Patrol #1 and 7 1/3 from Exciting X-Patrol #1.
