CCI: DC Nation Kickoff LIVE!
Ah, the familiar old, "You may have hated it, but at least you're talking about it!" idea. I wonder if that actually holds any weight in reality. Personally, I've had fun lambasting The Rise of Arsenal based on the pages we've seen online, but I'm still no more interested in Arsenal than I was before.
I'm pretty sure if you go around telling someone a particular thing is crap, no matter how many people you tell, you're still telling them its crap so they aren't going to buy it.
Some people have enough of a morbid fascination with watching train wrecks that they'll actually go out of their way to see bad s*** just to see how bad it really was.
Why is a story about Roy Harper not being able to get it up and clutching a dead cat in an alley a story that needed to be told? WHY?!
A story that needed to be told.
Whoever doesn't like Rise of Arsenal does not support the troops.
I like the idea of Star City becoming more central to the DCU than it has been previously. Making it more than just Ollie's home town and base really adds importance to it, and him. Those characters who are unpowered, but rely on skills and athleticism need another aspect of their background to up their overall importance I think.
I am sorry Charlie Boy
Did he also see many wounded millitary veterans who Taffy dead cats?
Which hero with non-cybernetic prosthetics is Robinson talking about? 'Cause it sure isn't Arsenal. Does he understand what cybernetic actually means?
Hey, you know what was fun? When Jeff Parker took that same idea to John Walker (a.k.a. ex-US Agent) in Thunderbolts and actually made it make sense.
How is it? I was very curious about it but still remained hesitant as I have not liked anything GA related since whenever Winnick took over years ago. This is coming from somebody who grew up on Grell's GA and was such a huge fan of the character that he was only second to Batman as my fave masked vigilante.
GREEN ARROW # 2 Preview
DC Comics has a new Green Arrow comic out. Here's a review about it, too!
Already got a Green Arrow thread. I've merged them...
Well... That was short.
Loved the first two issues. Im new to GA so i dont know alot about him, but this makes me wanna lol.
I wonder where they are going with him gettin shot in the head with the arrow though. Kinda hard to come back from that one lol
Aha! Except he was shot in the head while in a forest that sprung up overnight from the power of the white lantern which has already resurrected several heroes, and Ollie himself is a hero who returned from the dead (fully from heaven actually - doesn't get much more "definitely died and definitely rose" than that). The forest is a dead zone for other lantern energy, electronics, and shifts around. If there's anywhere Ollie could get shot in the head and return from it - it'd be there
So wait, it's not just a forest, it's a magic forest?
By the power of whiteness.
A magic, racist forest!
He's already been killed before by being blow up with no remains left and he still came back
Well damn. This seems like just a scratch to him then
