SPOILERS AHEAD. Seriously, stop reading if you don't want to know. Alright. Onwards...

Today, Superman: Rebirth #1 came out, and the piece immediately reads at a notably slower pace. Superman meets the post-Flashpoint version of his old friend Lana, part-time love interest Lana Lang. 

Along the Lana Lang reunion tour he tells Lang about his death at the hands of Doomsday in 1992's Superman #75; and his resurrection afterwards, resulting from a combination of events/individuals on pre-Flashpoint Earth.

It is then however, that the two realize the New 52 Superman -- who sacrificed his life in last week's Superman #52 is now gone forever. RIP Superman 52, you will be missed.

During the panel at MegaCon Stan Lee's quoted saying the following about last week's highly controversial Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 twist:

“It’s a hell of a clever idea,” he said. “I don’t know that I would ever have thought of it for him to be a double agent, but it’s going to make you curious, it’s going to make you want to read the books, they’ll probably do a movie based on it.”

This rather shocking revelation follows Justice League #42 when Batman who has gained possession of the Mobius Chair (basically a badass time-traveling chair that can answer all one might ever have to ask) tests the chair's ability to actually answer any question by asking who killed his parents, and then after hearing the correct answer, asking what the Joker's name is.



Not until this week's Justice League #50 did we finally figure out what Batman heard back from the Mobius Chair. After the events of the Darkseid War, Hal Jordan goes on to ask Batman what exactly the Mobius Chair said in reply to his question. 



And this is where it gets real weird, real quick: the chair didn't provide Batman one name, it tricky skullduggerous know 'n see all piece of high-tech furniture provided Batman three. THREE. Like wait what? A bold move by Geoff Johns, for sure.

We'll be curious to see how this pans out, as Joker's notorious for his inability to 'play well with others', but were the three Jokers ever to manage a coordinated attack against the dark night, it's probably fair to say that sh*t would hit the fan in one way or another...

When Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 went on sale this morning, it's fair to say the great many of us didn't anticipate the shocking Steve Rogers Hydra Agent twist.

TIME managed to sit down with Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort to pick his brain about the decision. Considering the interview in full, we learn that this was a strategic move on the comic book writer Nick Spencer's part to 'restore youth and vigor' to Cap'n, post super soldier serum-breakdown. The massive reveal has been in the works for more than a year. 

Kind of interesting to think about how this will impact the wider scope of the Marvel Universe, don't you think? The fact that someone named Captain America is literally revealed as having a perverse allegiance to an organization with these beliefs. A few of my favorite reactions from the internet to this news, to surface so far:







I'd encourage you to check out the interview from TIME with Marvel Exec. Editor in full over here!

Let's get a discussion rolling on any and all thoughts, complaints, predictions in light of the news encircling Cap'n 'Hydra' today.

Deadpool Director Tim Miller said during the Deadpool Blu-Ray release event that he and producer Simon Kinberg “have been trying to build bridge", between the two respective franchises. 

Kinberg went on to say, "with all of the deals that have recently started happening, we asked if they could get visitation rights to Sony‘s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man,” Kinberg added, laughing, “I would love to see it. Both of us are close with [Marvel’s] Kevin [Feige], we respect and love Kevin. If it were even remotely possible, we will find a way ’cause we’d would love to see it.”
