    Good point. They're obviously not a "powerful" but still relatively respected. I'm just not a big Oliver fan, so I have little respect for him, but I'd take Hawkman.

    I'm interested to see if it will be those big 3 taking the rest, especially Vibe and Stargirl (perhaps Baz too), under their wings to teach them etc. If Johns does it right, the experience vs inexperience should be a nice dynamic.

    This is a team that has a dude from Mars on it. Past iterations have had Atlanteans, Amazons, talking gorillas, robots, and bisexual blue space men. A Japanese woman isn't that big a stretch since the "Of America" never really encompassed their membership.

I think he's part of a class of artists that is starting to show its age (that post-Silvestri Image style big in the 90s-2000s)
    To each their own. Once you brought up Liefeld you lost all credibility in my eyes.

    I think Finch is among the best DC has to offer. Especially for a title such as this. In fact other than Liefeld up until recently I could appreciate the art in any book DC produces.

    "A lot of the things that were there [before the New 52] are still there"
    i wonder again.. was this reboot necessary?????
    most of the characters have kept the same background (Bats & GL's) and those mythologies r still present (Killer Joke, in Blackest Night), the reboot seems utterly unnecessary

    Definitely a top 10 overall and top 5 DC. I'd say close to Batman and JL.

    Anyways, I'm really looking forward to this. Who are your predictions for the Secret Society of Super-Villains guys?
    I only came up with these five: Black Manta, Cheetah, Count Vertigo, Johnny Sorrow, Mordru
    Um those guys are JSA villains and they'd annihilate this team individually.

    More than Johns deserves IMO.

    This will be my ONLY DC title for some time as I consider what else to pick and whether I want Hoax hunters.
    Damn! Can't wait for this!

    "Remakes" Reading that alone makes me think that this won't be good. Nothing I've read where he remade a character has been good. He has a great record connecting dots and fixing things, but when he changes characters to his version, they're never as good.

    More likely, Johns is viewing things through the fanboy prism, which is par for the course.
    What were Moore's reasons for labeling Steve so?

    Because:

    -Hawkman appears to be presiding over a ceremony
    -Vibe is about to turn tail and run away
    -Kick-Ass appears to be leading them into action
    -Catwoman doesn't have sense enough to put on her goggles or zip up her suit before getting into a fight
    -Steve is waving his guns around for some reason instead of pointing them at me
    -I have no idea what Katana is doing with her body or why
    -Stargirl is staring off into space
    -Green Arrow appears to be trying to run and shoot me at the same time, which will spoil his aim
    -On the other hand, Martian Manhunter does look like he might be able to give me a beat-down
