    Thanks for subbing in a bigger image in that quote, Lemonpeace. That, I can read!

    Agreed; Bruce is smart, and he's the best there is at things like criminal psychology and detective work, but when it comes to raw science he shouldn't even be a consideration. He shouldn't be anywhere near any conversations that involve "real" scientists like Palmer, Magnus, Stein, Luthor, Sivana, Ivo, Morrow, etc.

    And for my money, Holt is at the top of those lists. Maybe not smarter than Luthor, but right there next to him.

    Love the Terrifics. Great book, lots of fun, very happy with it. Hope it has a long, long run. This is an idea that I hope DC invests in. If sales fall to a point where the book has to be cancelled, it deserves a relaunch. But these guys deserve to be pushed; I want to see them in the big crossovers and Events, and not just in the background or "everybody's here" splash pages; I want them (especially Holt) to have a real, meaningful role in stuff!

    Having a team with no Bat or Super characters is honestly desperately needed at DC. The problem with all the Ex Robins running DC’s teams is that they’ll always be subordinate to Batman, so it makes those teams feel like Junior Justice Leagues unlike the X-Men/Avengers/FF separation over at Marvel. The Terrifics, if DC actually keeps pushing them, can stand on their own because they’re not characters that were created to support the League members.

    I mean there has to be some push, they have managed to make it to near 30 where the rest of the New Age of Hero books didn't, although thankfully Sideways and Silencer seem to be getting used in other series. Although I have no idea what the sales on this series currently is so who knows.

    THIS.

    I'll keep it simple. I have an open wallet and i'm ready to eagerly spend money on comics. Virtually every month i end up cursing silently to myself and closing my wallet after having spent FAR less than i would have liked to with DC (or Marvel). Independent publishers (truly independent . Kickstarter guys) are producing content i actually want to pay for but they lack the finances to put out content monthly.

    It is comically frustrating to continue to see DC (and Marvel) step over money month after month due to sidelining other characters and tying everything to Clark, Bruce, Diana and Hal. Like...they are literally refusing to take my money month after month with this publishing behavior.

    Yeah, Sideways in Young Justice and Silencer in Wonder Woman.

    Ok so looks like next issue is not only an anniversary issue, but it’s also choose your own adventure from the look of it.
