What the fuck was this shit?

Yes Rex came back but all it was was Alfred going to each and every one of them. This should not even be a regular issue much less a special issue. :smt011

Hey, I like BL, Katana, Metamorpho, and Halo, too, but let's not say things we can't take back.
It's Chap. Never expect an intelligent repsonse. :twisted:

Oh yeah, just to really twist the knife:

Not a bad issue. Nevertheless:

I do hope any future mention of BL's so-called "daughters" is kept to the barest minimum.

Halo has never gone by "Violet", only Gabrielle. Maybe that was just writer error, but if not... :?

Katana has never been a practicing Buddhist.

The revamped Creeper, I can take or leave. Meh.

Complete and utter truth. Halo is what? 30 now? Probably be snuggling to Katana for motherly love when it fit more with Cass. :P They better goddamn have Cass pop in now and again with Katana. That was the best damn thing of Dixon's run. Besides.. I guess we can start the Halo death watch now. After all she's probably the one whose going to die if ever death is come's for the team. No way is Creeper, BL, Geo, Rex, and Katanna gonna bite it.

Halo is well deadweight.

I'm not to impressed by this line-up. Teams should live up to their name and I don't think any of the team except for the Creeper do. Lighting's a former politician who has two kids, Geo's a ruler of a country, and Katanna and Rex are both middle-aged. Halo works but do I would never imagine someone with that name being on a special-ops team.

Honestly I really don't see the Geo or BL love. They're characters just SOOOOO suck. We lost Cass for this?

Geo's cool in that he's ruler who has that whole "I'm a ruler so thus I'm cooler than you" attitude but he's pretty much the Chinatown version of Doom, the Panther, and any other comic book ruler out there.

Lightning's cool too because he's a blaxploitation character like Luke Cage who's developed quite a bit in recent years much like Cage. What makes not a ripoff though is that he's pretty much what Cage will be in a few years if Marvel continues getting him growth.

BL developed in Isabella's 2 solo series and Barr's Outsiders runs. All they've done nowadays is retroactively saddle him with this ridiculous "family" baggage that he didn't need.

I have no idea who Halo is, but I really enjoyed the special.

I wish Kubert was the regular artist for the book.

here's another one. :roll: read original BATO #2 and especially #19...you'll get a feel for why G-F's cool. and any issue of that series will show you why BL is.

actually, technically she did between issues 16 and 20 of vol. 1. ;-)

Katana has never been a practicing Buddhist.

i'll be honest, this ain't nearly the hang-up for me that it obviously is
for you, but she's never been portrayed as a practicing anything else either, has she?

The revamped Creeper, I can take or leave. Meh.
agreed. the Ryder persona needs to be MUCH saner to make that character work for me. i think Creeper's a great fit for this team, just not this take on the Creeper.
