The book came out over a month ago and only the Wondergirl (Cassandra) story was posted as far as I could see so I'm posting a bit more from it since it had a bunch of stories inside.

Animal Man had a 12 page story in the book and I'll be posting 3 from it

Lyssa Drak had a story on her which was 6 pages and I'll be posting 2.

Animal Man's story begins on the start of Blackest Night with an army of extinct animals trying to kill Animal Man. He's doing well protecting his family but in an effort to battle them off tries tapping into the morphogenetic field of the extinct animals attacking him

The story then cuts to the JLA as it was assembled during Blackest Night with him and the other members getting possessed by Black Rings as they've died and been resurrected before.

Yeah, a pretty sick scene but well the Black Lanterns are attacking emotional ties so this one makes some sense.

The White Ring flies onto Buddy turning him into a White Lantern as he had in Blackest Night for all of a few panels and shows the most interesting bit of the story....

Panel 3 seems to be saying Animal Man is the Protector Deadman's searching for but I'm guessing this was more of an accident than anything. The last panel also seems to be a heavy tie in to the current stuff going on in Brightest Day and particularly Generation Lost. So here's hoping he shows up in Brightest Day soon.

Lyssa Drak during Blackest Night was caught into the Boo of Black by Scar and left there...

Lyssa's been having a bad time since then.

And Lyssa's been given a new lease on life, sorta.

Hoping she's used well, she was my favorite of the Sinestro Corps members shown thus far and of course the mystery about the shrouded figure continues.

I think this is a sign Buddy needs to forever stay away from Kory forever... and ever. This was disgusting -_-

Buddy and Kory together is beyond horrid. Let's rape the former slave!

And the "Last Days of Animal Man", don't get me started...

Yes! Ugh God. And he's all like "Omg don't tell her that" and I'm like "You're worried about what you're saying not what you're doing"

And geez yes! Those two need to just stay away from each other. Who thought any of that, or this was a good idea? I don't even know.

I didn't like hearing anything about Kory being with Animal Man. I didn't even like seeing her carrying on a sexual relationship with Capt. Comet in R.E.B.E.L.S. Not because I feel like she belongs to Dick, no bullshit like that, but I feel like for the majority she's portrayed as a sexual character which overshadows how badass and tough she can be. I want more of the Kory who can make Brainiac 2 pee himself with a mere look.

I like the Captain Comet thing. He's a nice guy and you know...not married. Seriously, I second the "Last Days of Animal Man" thing. Who thought that was a good idea (thankfully it's not in continuity).

As I was posting concurrently with you - I do like the Adam/Kory pairing although he'd already hurting over it... and she might be too; but he is very nice and very not married

and Last Day is becoming less and less in continuity (Dick as... Nightwing?; Kory just... ignoring Dick?)

The whole thing with Animal Man started in 52 with the Psychedelic Fruit... It was such an odd pairing. 'Come stay at my house Princess, let my 13 year old son lust over your essentially naked body, let my wife just wonder about us a lot, my daughter too for that matter... you know, cause I love my family so much...'

Dick and Kory is my OTP, but I don't hate her with Captain Comet, he is certainly a better match for her both as a hero and as a single person; it's just they needed more time together before they had the zero-g sex (I know they were 'comforting each other')

I still think DC is working toward a Dick/Kory reunion... really... I have viable theories (but Dan Didio hates me and the rest of us so it probably won't happen)

Well, to be fair, I think what's being implied is that the Black Lantern ring is taking what would be quite normal and natural feelings and impulses - Buddy has a crush on a hot coworker; nothing unusual about that - and twists them into abhorrent and monstrous forms. I don't think he has a deep, unexpressed desire to rape her or anything - he's simply attracted to her. It's the ring coming up with the nasty stuff, not him.

That's what I thought. The whole point of the Black Lanterns is to make their victims feel an emotion in the most intense way possible. And a way to do it is well, that.

Exactly. There is no emotion that can't be made destructive if it's too extreme. Lust becomes rape. Love turns into obsessive smothering of initiative. Everything needs moderation.

The idea seems to have been, as I recall, that these were twisted parodies of the actual people, designed to have a cruel effect on the targets.

Well, a version of Buddy Baker that handwaves away his family like that is certainly little more than a parody, yes.

I am not saying that Buddy has had anything more than a crush on Starfire, and really it all started with the stranding and the tainted fruit back in 52... but even if it is the ring, it's just hard to take.

No, Buddy wouldn't rape Kory, but the editors at DC don't mind.

Well, it would certainly be, at the very least, somewhat awkward to start a relationship with someone after you've seen them transformed into a murderous rape-zombie with ill-intentions towards your person, yes.
What's this business about the tainted fruit? Was it tainted with some sort of love potion or aphrodisiac or something?

tell that to Luke and Laura...

I think it was sort of an opiate or other euphoria-producing mind-altering substance. Adam Strange didn't partake (was it when he was blind? Maybe he couldn't find any... actually he refused. ) Buddy and Kory only flirted but she walked around naked a whole lot saying how repressed humans are and why would they want to leave paradise.

Ah, I see. Sounds like her.
OK, I'm drawing a blank - who are Luke and Laura?

Luke and Laura from General Hospital circa 1981... perhaps before your time ;-P
