Can I get a hell yeah to BC getting chairman reigns? I think it's great and well-deserved. I also like Roy/Kendra which provides a nice reverse to Ollie/Katar. I know others have been disappointed, but I'm on board. Perfect blend of nostalgia and modern (and nice use of HQ).

For some reason making Canary chairperson of the League seemed a bit anticlimactic/calculated after the Powergirl as chairperson for the JSA reveal in the same month. I do like the idea of Black Canary as leader better than Powergirl though. She has the experience and the character growth (thanks to the time in Birds of Prey) and has been shown to think things through as a team player whereas Powergirl often seems to let her emotions lead her.

The Roy/Kendra thing just doesn't work for me because I see Hawkgirl still being more or less the wife of Hawkman, even if they aren't there yet. If anything, making him chase after the first sexy girl he can just makes him superficially like the way Ollie has been portrayed over the past couple of years. Don't really care for the "Red Arrow" name, it just sounds lame to my ears, like the only thing that could be come up with after 3 minutes of thinking. I hope we'll see more to him than just being a reflection of Green Arrow, but so far, his name choice, costume and womanizing, everything about him has centered on Green Arrow even when they are trying to say they are distancing him from Green Arrow. Do, don't say. If you say it, you're just calling attention to the Green Arrow relationship all over again.

I did like the melding of the various cartoon headquarters. And am interested in where the Geoforce sub plot is going. Always liked the Outsiders (as in Batman And...) and it's good seeing them actually getting used in some serious capacity than being written off as cannon fodder.
