DC's Legends of Tomorrow's Instagram account released several images with dark background asking users to apply filters to reveal the easter eggs. These posters hint at Justice Society members like Hourman and Sandman and many more weird characters that probably aren't going to get their own movie any time soon.

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.

While up in space and waiting to be deployed into Earth's atmosphere for an underwater Russian facility, Harley Quinn encounters an exciting Pokémon (Mewtwo tho?..), and exclaims "Oooh, There's a Pokecutey up here!"

Suicide Squad #1 is authored by Rob Williams and pencilled by Jim Lee, with Alex Sinclair on coloring duties and Nate Piekos bringing it all together on the lettering. Here's the image of Harley trying to catch 'em all:

During his interview with Comicality, the current Wonder Woman author Greg Rucka finally addressed whether or not Wonder Woman's bisexual (rumors and speculation had long since been running wild):

[Y]es, [Wonder Woman is queer]. I think it’s more complicated though. This is inherently the problem with Diana: we’ve had a long history of people — for a variety of reasons, including sometimes pure titillation, which I think is the worst reason — say, “Ooo. Look. It’s the Amazons. They’re gay!”

And when you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is, “How can they not all be in same sex relationships?” Right? It makes no logical sense otherwise.

It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able — in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women.

But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, “You’re gay.” They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist.

Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? As Nicola and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes.

And it needs to be yes for a number of reasons. But perhaps foremost among them is, if no, then she leaves paradise only because of a potential romantic relationship with Steve [Trevor]. And that diminishes her character. It would hurt the character and take away her heroism.

The auction is being hosted in the UK by Prop Store, where the Batpod will likely go for between $80,000 and $100,000. Even though it's being sold as a 'roller' (doesn't actually run), it's a few steps away from being ready for the road. Imagine that, right?
