    So, what are YOUR feelings on Rebirth Wonder Woman's mortal danger vulnerability showing to a riccochet bullet to the juglar vein? Her survival to Superman's stopgap heat vision cauterization?


It's right in line with what her vulnerability should be. She's always been vulnerable to piercing weapons even if her durability has been highly inconsistent lately. One moment, a bullet nearly kills her and another moment, she tanks grenades and missiles without a problem, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense when one thinks about it long enough.

    How 'bout the confirmation that she knows her early memories are not true?


Hate it with a passion. DC had the perfect opportunity to reverse the damage done in the New 52 by returning Diana to her rightful origin of being created from clay and they dropped the ball so hard it blew a hole in the ship and sunk it.

    And could somebody please explain, in layman's terms, what the heck Cyborg did with Deathstroke's knife to save himself?


I'm going to check the issue out once again and get back to you on this one.

    It's not like this plot is original and it did feel like Red Lion was a despot-version knockoff of Black Panther but he seems to intentionally looks like him to leech off some of that marketability, eh? And yet oddly, other than the serious nits, above, and the fact that this whole JL run has not felt a true part of the mainstream DCU, in general, this installment had some enjoyable story scenes. Will YOU be getting next issue to see if how WW lives?


Oh there's no question Diana will live. But this run in JL hasn't been very good. Especially the recent story arc with "The Fan" leaving the Justice League completely enept in dealing with him when they should have been more than capable. They've dealt with worse. Honestly, it should not have taken Deathstroke to kill the guy. Plus, the Fan's death came out of no where and I felt Deathstroke was used as a plot device in order to resolve a storyline that was going on for far too long.

Hopefully, when Justice League relaunches, it's with a brand new writer who can actually write a good story with a competent team who knows how to deal with a problem.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
