DoubleDCoverage #20

I'm back with this week's installment of DoubleDCoverage at the Girls Entertainment Network!

I learned a bit too much about the sex lives of our favorite heroes this past week. Also, have the Secret Six split up AGAIN? Reviews for Justice League: Cry for Justice #2 and Secret Six #12 are ahead, also, check out my star ratings for my other pulls from last Wednesday!

Been following you on Twitter and cam across your blog. Very cool. You do a lot of good writing IMHO.

Hmmmmmmm

I really think you're selling the Robinson JLA series short.

Personally, I saw the Bill/Mikaal interaction as Robinson's nod to the usual 'heroes fight first over a misunderstanding, then team-up.' There's never usually a good reason for it. It's just a time-honored tradition. We just happened to have come in on the tail-end of the fight.

As far as Ray Palmer's interaction with Freddy Freeman....oy...

Back in Zero Hour, Ray had been de-aged back to his teenage years. Dan Jurgens must have thought it was a great thing that he did because he then used the character in his revamped Teen Titans series. This was the series that introduced Argent, Risk and several other forgotten characters into the DCU.

About a year after he started that series, he started to bring in the original Titans as supporting characters and had Captain Marvel Junior join the team. And that it how Ray Palmer knows Freddy Freeman.

But I'm not sure how that links to Kevin Bacon.

Thanks very much Pete, I appreciate that. Absolutely! Feel free to link to my blog.

Randy, I can understand the fighting part I guess but not the abrupt about face they seemed to make. Nice, Kevin Bacon reference btw.

Thinking about it, Jill, I think certain things that seem 'off' might be more editorial than Robinson. I think aspects of the story got changed, altered, or completely taken out.

This series was supposed to come out about a year before now. It was also supposed to be an ongoing series, rather than a mini-series. And certainly, it wasn't supposed to be a lead-in to Robinson taking over the JLA book.

I'm sure that has affected what the finished product has turned out to be.
