I promise I will write about other topics than comics again soon! And enough for DC here is a MARVEL topic: Spider-Woman. One of the comic characters with some mystery to her. Well. I first saw Spider-Woman in the Iron Man TV cartoon series. I never thought her to be like the female version of Spider-Man. Basically I didn‘t know much about the supporting characters in Iron Man. As far as I remember they are the Avengers to that time but I might be wrong. Hawkeye also appeared there regularly. SO I guess they were the Avengers. But whatever. Like a year or two ago I was reading my monthly Spider-Man comic book (Amazing Spider-Man #648). And my brother took a look over my shoulder to check what I was doing. He doesn‘t know much about comics, he only knows the movies. He was able to recognize some of the characters though but finally pointed to Spider-Woman. He was like „Who is this?“ I answered „Spider-Woman!“ He looked at me and asked „Why does she fly?“ And I was like „I dunno!“ (read on…)

Yes, I love her. I am a man, I am heterosexual (mostly) and I like boobs! So Powergirl definitly is one of my favorite DC heroines. Well… let us say WAS! (read on…)
Well, I wanna add something to my last blog post about the New 52. Um… maybe it is not as bad as I thought. First of all I found out why Barbara Gordon can walk again:
One of the Joker’s goons called the police and told them where Barbara was. So Gordon didn‘t find her laying on the floor after he was „raped“ by the Joker but she was found much earlier and could be saved from beeing paralyzed.
What do I think about this in the end? Hmm… I dunno. I mean DC has completly changed their universe many times in the last decades beginning with „Crisis on Inifinite Earths“ in 1985. So this event is nothing special. They even already released new #0 or #1 earlier. For example after the „Crisis in Time“ event in 1994. And they always came back to the original numbering later. Here’s an add released in „Zero Hour: Crisis in Time #0″
When I started reading this story I started at #0 and noticed I was doing it wrong when I thought back to „Countdown to Final Crisis“ which also had to be read from #52 to #0.
In the past events they always changed MAJOR things: different origin stories, new costumes, new powers, new earths, deleted earths, kill characters, bring back characters! THEY! OFTEN! CHANGED! FUCKING! EVERYTHING! Flashpoint seems to have changed only details. And those details, like the phone call the Joker’s goon made, changed the characters and/or major things. And I really like that approach! Often nobody knew about even the biggest changes after the last events. Now we have at least the Flash who remembers what happened before the reboot. He’s the only one remembering everything. This is quite interesting when he meets people he knew before the reboot and who are now different. So he really has to deal with that, while everybody else does not seem to know what was going on. I can‘t wait to finally experience one or two series myself when the reboot hits Germany.
Follow the little chaning EVENT!!!
Yay, comics again. At the moment I am reading the German run of Flashpoint. THE DC event that will truly change everything. I‘ve already heard about this relaunch/reboot last year, when it happened in the US. And I followed the news via DC’s Facebook page ever since, not too careful cause I didn‘t want to spoil myself. Everything I got: DC ended all their ongoing comic books and completly started over with 52 new #1s. Even Earth’s most tradtional comic books „Action Comics“ and „Detective Comics“ started with new #1s. Actually this is really risky but I didn‘t think about it that much in the beginning. (read on…)
