Opening scene would be two foolish super crooks trying to rob a bank

In swoops Hawkgirl

They brag that bullets won't be a match for them

And the next thing they know they've got a face full of hawk trying to eat their nose

Actually the previous incarnations were supposed to be Egyptian descendants and they were white so really the characters have been portrayed poorly as far as race goes for about ever.

Plus like HighFivingMf said, these are characters on a new Earth with absolutely no connection to the rebooted main earth of the New 52 other than the fact that this earth is in someway attached to the new universe. So if they decided to make Mr. Terrific white I wouldn't care and we already have Cyborg of New 52 Earth Prime.

One of the many awesome things about the Hawks is they have been pretty much every race on Earth in their past lives.

I'd be pretty annoyed if they replaced Mr Terrific with a white guy personally

There aren't many black heroes in comic books it would suck if they got rid of one of the few they do have

I don't care what they do with or to any of the Fake Earth-2 characters really. It's not like they are the real things.

On the actual Earth-Two, I'd like to bring Terry Sloane back and maybe have Michael Holt as his friend and partner-the Earth-Two Michael Holt's family is still alive, of course.

It's a shame that they forgot that Earth-Two was supposed to be the more upbeat world where superheroes had made a positive impact and things were better. But grim and gritty, etc, etc.

Most recently though they have been white people that are supposed to be of Egyptian Pharaoh Lineage, so really the race thing is kind a silly complaint.

Yeah, but they can be any race really, it's all in their resume.

Terry and Michael being friends on Earth 2 would be pretty fun I liked when they teamed up in JSA

I own every Huntress comic put out; and, I don't remember her even being a female version of Robin.

And, it's not that I'm opposed to that. It's just something we see quite often. I was glad to see that she's going from Earth 2 #1 to being Huntress in World's Finest. The bad part is that while she was my favorite part of the first issue, I guess we won't see her any longer. Makes me more hesitant in keeping up with this book.

Ah, okay, I thought you thought those two Robins had come from Earth-2. That's why I was confused. Those are indeed the only two female Robins (besides Huntress now, I guess).

The cover of issue 1 displays a better belt outfit for Superman than the normal one. Mixing red and yellow like abig banner or something, Ifind this more accurate and more respectful to the traditionnal Superman costume, and more also more colorful than the one of Earth-1.

I'm not a particular fan of the JSA, nor an expert, but I have the same feeling with DC right now. I dropped most series I had before the new 52. I still buy Aquaman and GL but I will drop the latter very soon... unless Sinestro becomes a bad guy again...

This is how DC makes up for getting rid of Alan Scott's gay son.

^ lmao Now that you mention it there is an irony in the Alan Scott with the purple, red, green, orange and yellow costume being the straight one. He even felt weak around wood for god's sake ha ha ha.

Yeah; one of the best developed from the pre-launch days. I do miss Jade though but at least it means no more "Ok Jade I love you; uh Ok I changed my mind I don't; ok I love you again" BS from Kyle Rayner.

It is kind of funny that DC makes one character gay while getting rid of a gay character. And making Scott gay when he just had a gay son 6 months ago pre 52.

But the original was "white".

But is the current Mr. Terrific on Earth-2?? His book got cancelled, right?
