Over at the CBR forums there's a theory floating around that Brutaal is actually a brain-washed Earth 2 Superman. Could be. He hasflight, super-strength, invulnerability, glowing red eyes. Even his flying poses are very Superman-esque !

pretty sure Supes' heat vision never looked like the Omega Effect. although I suppose with Apokoliptian technology they could change that. does the rumor extend to:

the Beguiler being WW and Bedlam being Batman? Taylor has promised Robinson leaves on a very shocking, game-changing note...i'd think Apokoliptian-reanimated corpses of the Big 3would qualify...

I caved and bought #1 on Comixology. If there's any way I could get into the New 52, it would be through a series that COMPLETELY ditches established continuity, not that compromise bullshit they've been doing. I hope I like it!

Read Earth 2 #1 today.

- The art was fucking gorgeous. How has Marvel not snapped up Nicola Scott yet?
- The plot and pacing was enjoyable. I like that DC has one book where they're completely ignoring everything that came before and starting a new universe from the ground up.
- The dialogue was stilted throughout and painful in parts. Does it get better?

yes and no...it fluctuates from issue to issue, sometimes from page to page. with this book, you just kinda have to take some bad with the good.

So what're the positives of the book in your mind? I'd have to go with the Nicola Scott art and the lack of reverence for a status quo.

Also, I've read the first two issues of Flash and have been tempted to start picking that up regularly. I know you read both; which way would you lean?

I agree on your two points. I've loved Nicola's work since she started on BoP, and E-2 is the one book at DC right now that really feels like something new, where anything can happen to its characters. it's zero issue was by far my favorite of that whole gimmick, and is pretty central to the status quo. in addition, once you get beyond the whole "let's go out of our way to make sure nearly everybody is NOT a straight white male" aspect of it, most of the characters are likable or at least interesting, and the book gets to do character-building as well as overall world-building. makes for a different feeling book than most.

and yeah, I like Flash a lot. it's old-school, bright shiny superheroics with some classic soap opera thrown in, delivered with IMMO the best art in DC's whole line at the moment. worth a buy for sure.

I hope that it's something like corpses and not brainwashing or something that can be undone.

You sold me, Chap. I think I'm going to get caught up on Flash, and then Earth 2. One question, though: will I need to read titles outside of Flash to understand what's going on during the Forever Evil bullshit?

Shit if I know. I know I won't be reading any outside books, or any of the Forever Evil villains issues, so if you're lost during that, I'll be right there with you.

So you'll be completely skipping the month of September? That might be the way to go.
