Wow so Canadiam....

Owlman88 - 5/11/2014, 10:21 PM
so... thats the real Lobo?

Was not impressed with the first issue.

Only reason I'd pick this up would be for Hawkman but it looks like they make him a wuss here so screw that.

BTW a little weird to have the tag line "Gathering together to protect the GALAXY." and have the Canadian symbol there. Are they for the whole galaxy but especially for Canada?

Looks dumb. Why would green arrow be in canada?
Mrsinister - 5/11/2014, 10:31 PM
Also with all the female heroes why would they use star girl?
SidTheDolphMan - 5/11/2014, 10:31 PM
Green Arrow looks like a dink
SidTheDolphMan - 5/11/2014, 10:31 PM

I'll probably check it out once I finish reading the Animal Man run. Need to see where Buddy goes after his series ends.

I think the REAL Lobo is still trying to bust out the Pre-Flashpoint Universe and as soon as he does gonna rip the New 52 a new A-hole :p

Man, that one so far this years been a joke.
SidTheDolphMan - 5/11/2014, 10:47 PM
And also because Canada right James?
LEEE777 - 5/11/2014, 10:48 PM

SidTheDolphMan - 5/11/2014, 10:50 PM
Looks like Boba Fett is after her
Fastestmanalive - 5/11/2014, 11:04 PM
Yea, aint new 52 great?

Unless you'r a fan of Wally West, Bart Allen, Tim Drake, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Superman, Superboy, Supergirl, Lobo, Amanda Waller, Oracle, Cyborg Superman, Starfire, Roy Harper, Teen Titans, Raven, Steel, JSA, Alan Scott, Jay Garrick, Martian Manhunter or Metallo.

Well then my friend u are shit out of luck. But hey now Animal man rocks so its all good right?
mgeoff88 - 5/11/2014, 11:14 PM
The New 52 Lobo isn't as badass as the pre-New 52 one.

@LEEE She could frag me anytime. ;P
LEEE777 - 5/11/2014, 11:50 PM
MrSid @ mgeoff88 Yeah! Haha : D


Fastestmanalive @ Ikr, I cannot believe what they done with Wally... was hoping (well wishing) he'd burst thru some dimension wall or something with all the memories of the the Pre-Flashpoint Wally. A man stuck in a World he doesn't belong, he could have tried to right them wrongs (what Barry messed up) - basically try and get his Earth back and probably to the New 52 World be classed as a Super Villain!

Would have been pure writing Gold, but we end up with some bland Wally West character in Flash Annual#3 :/



Animal Man? Cool, my fav's EARTH 2.

Well, I guess this means that we'll never get that "Justice League: Cleveland" that we were waiting for.
Klone - 5/12/2014, 3:40 AM
Sounds gimmicky and Silver Agey as [frick].
Klone - 5/12/2014, 3:41 AM
Why not simply make "Checkmate" or something another superhero team with the second tier heroes like Dr. Fate, The Atom, Mr. Terrific, Huntress, etc. so the Justice League doesn't get overcrowded?
loki668 - 5/12/2014, 4:46 AM
@MAK

Don't you want to see "Justice League: Idaho Flea Market"?
BoomTubeB - 5/12/2014, 4:53 AM
Lobo fragin rules!

BoomTubeB - 5/12/2014, 5:00 AM
Dr Fate is top shelf in my opinion !!!

MrZurEnArrh - 5/12/2014, 5:21 AM
Jeff Lemire and Animal Man are on bord so i'll have to check this! Brings back good memories of Marvel's Alpha Flight!
marvel72 - 5/12/2014, 5:41 AM
not a fan of the artwork but i do love the writer.
QuestiontheAnswer - 5/12/2014, 8:01 AM
And I thought there was nothing of lesser prestige than Justice League Detroit.
FastFlames - 5/12/2014, 8:10 AM
Lol wut Canada?
Fastestmanalive - 5/12/2014, 9:56 AM
@LEEE777

Yea that would have been cool but I would have just settled for Wally himself. I finally figured it out. It didn't make sense. Why would DC have a character that has a huge fan base, who people have been begging for for the last two and a half years, and then hype them up by announcing his return, only to spit all of the fans in the face by producing a character, literally in name only.

I mean they are a business and its not very good business sense to piss off your consumers. Only logical conclusion I could come to is that Dan DILDO has a personal thing against Wally and was getting annoyed at all the fans who were asking for him, so this was his way of shutting us up and sticking it to us.

Very unprofessional and stupid. I for one was a huge DC fan. Been collecting since I was 6 and specifically have every single Flash comic since the late 60's.

Not anymore. I have dropped all my DC titles after what they did to my favorite character. If DC has no loyalty to the fans or their own characters than I have no loyalty to them.

What a shame.

Rant over.
Mankzin2 - 5/12/2014, 10:13 AM
Is that the actual Lobo or the fake one. When I say fake I recall hearing a story that the Lobo that has been around for years and years is actually an imposter. The one portrayed looks to be slimmer and most likely the REAL Lobo. OR did all that get sorted.
campblood - 5/12/2014, 11:41 AM
why does Canada need a justice league

Got to ask Simon Bisley what he thought of the new Lobo at a convention:

"It [frick]in' sucks! It's ridiculous!" -- Simon Bisley
LEEE777 - 5/12/2014, 12:47 PM
Fastestmanalive @ Nice rant and I know exactly where your going!

Yeah the Wally thing is just plain stupid, I reckon its all to do with Iris being African American in the TV show.

I really really don't like what they've done with Lobo!

Damn well fingers crossed maybe The Phantom Stranger will [frick] things up for the New 52 verse!
LEEE777 - 5/12/2014, 12:47 PM
