The current twice monthly scheduling of Nightwing is good news for those of us who like more Dick in our lives, but can make the deciding of when to make posts a little tricky, but I'm working on it.

The latest arc has Dick moving away from Gotham, to somewhere both familiar and different, on multiple levels.

"He's also used to a certain degree of soap-opera in his superheroics, so he's able to stay cool under emotional pressure, too. If you think about it, the X-Men have had it far, far worse than the Avengers for most of Marvel's timeline - (for more on this, listen to the fab Rachel & Miles X-Plain The X-Men podcast, which I heartily recommend you do) - so Roberto is used to operating under pressures someone like Steve Rogers can't really imagine. And he's learned to do it with flair." -- Al Ewing

"I'm actually really happy with the modular nature of the NEW AVENGERS/AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. crossover. You can buy one half - and get a full, three-dimensional story. Or -- buy BOTH... for FOUR-DIMENSIONAL VISION! And why stop there? Plug the whole thing into STANDOFF! It's ACTION ALL THE WAY DOWN, TRUE BELIEVER!" - Al Ewing

It was going out the same way it'd come in.

The Warriors were confronting the High Evolutionary and his plan to kill everyone on Earth who wasn't flatscan human. They beat his Evolutionaries and subdued him.

Then Earth's own Eternals BOOM'd into the story.

They came crashing through the High Evolutionary's ship's roof. )

What it wasn't was one immediately so.

When Archaia's take on Cyborg 009 opened, he didn't look like who he was.

He sounded like it when he was talking up the latest type of weapon he planned to sell, though.

He was as effective, but not as grandiose, as his counterpart in the original. )

.. well, you do now.

It's the one where there's folks who've been unwillingly cyborgized and they're fighting against the Nazi-like super-terrorists that did unto them. It isn't the one, however, no doubt just crossing your mind as this sentence ends.

Unless, that is, Cyborg 009 is what you're thinking of right now. )

...according to current DC lore, it's the birthday of Dick Grayson! ("Robin" being his mothers pet name for him, since he arrived on the first day of Spring.... That makes more sense when you're American, as your robins are associated with Spring, whereas in Europe they're associated with Christmas and winter.

But first, a word from our stalker... SPONSOR

So with that recommendation... here is a summation of Dick's pre-Crisis origin as shown in the first attempt to summarise a complete history of Batman and his cast - "The Untold Legend of the Batman" from 1980, in this case issue 2 (Five pages from a 21 page story)

Jim Aparo beneath... and that's a GOOD thing )

And now to contrast Barbara Gordon's fight with Gretel, how about 4 pages of Helena Wayne's own personal brand of justice against the Chairman of Kufra himself?

Aside from some cliche dialogue and some blantant misogyny, this was actually a pretty good issue. In fact it was shit tonnes better than the last three issues, which makes me wonder why this mini didn't pick up pace sooner.

As for Helena Wayne's characterisation in this issue...let's just say this issue will either make or break the deal for any pre-existing Huntress fans. I don't think I need to clarify my position on this comm since this is *me* we're talking about, but I will say that this definitely has me excited for the series' conclusion next month, and even moreso with Power Girl making an appearance.

4 pages of MAJOR SPOILERS behind cut )

Looks like this issue will be tonnes better than the last, and Helena sheds more light on her upbringing.

I’m led to believe now, Earth-2 Batman was just like his original Golden Age version, who used to kill people. I also think she’s being more Selina-like in her approach to fighting crime. Maybe Earth-2 Selina was the post-Crisis Selina? I’m starting to increasingly believe this is *very* likely.

And yes, I did say *easter eggs.* You'll see! ;)

4 pages worth of *SPOILERS!* 8D )
