    Gurihiru's pin-up could easily be a new Teen Titans or Young Justice roster, lol.

    Is Sounds set early in Cass's original run as Batgirl? She's still practically mute.

    Yeah, Katana's the only one (that I recognize anyway, I don't know who the woman in green with swords above her is...) that's totally an adult. The rest are kinda young.

    Lol. He means the pinup that’s listed in the table of contents with Roundhouse, Wally West’s son and daughter, Eugene Shazam, and Damien Robin.

    You’re getting mixed up and referring to the cover shown that’s by Jim Lee. There are some adults, some teens shown. The woman in green, with swords is Cheshire.

    That preview looks like it takes place during Post-Crisis with wheelchair Babs Oracle and Cass plainly just Batgirl.

    Grunge seems like a dated character (the name and all), but I love the fact that he goes against stereotypes and comic tropes. I would love to see him used more. Plus I don’t think a lot of Gen Z-ers immediately know what grunge music is, so maybe the name wouldn’t seem so 90s.

    He could definitely use a new name, but I do like that he's not a Bat, Supes, GL, GA legacy, nor quite as much of an Asian stereotype as Katana.

    Plus the whole matter-mimic thing is a fun power, very versatile and fairly uncommon, with Amazing Man being the main other DC matter-mimic, and Absorbing Man, a less-used villain, being the most 'common' matter mimic over at Marvel.

    Holy carp that's right. His kids are half Korean! It never popped on my radar that they were Asian even after all of Wally's stories featuring them.

    I know this probably isn't official canon, but I wish it was if only for classic Sivana.

    I feel like his hench-people should be his kids though.

    I don't see why it wouldn't be. Shazam's in that story. I think they've probably retconned that his New 52 family was always his foster family and that Billy was always called Shazam and not Captain Marvel, but other than that things from before Flashpoint should be canon again, which explains Sivana's look.

    His name is actually Super-Man, which is supposed to be the Chinese Mandarin translation of Superman and just written in English for the convenience of the readers. His name is really 超人, Chāorén. Which you can see on his comic's logo.
