So here we go, here are my latest comments on what I watched and read recently, all super-hero related.
I finished the serie known as Justice League (the first 2 seasons) and Justice league unlimited (the last 3). I must say I'm not really a fan of the DC characters, I'm more a marvel guy. I do love Batman, Superman ok, but after that it's get really boring. It does show in the JL episodes with those 7 super guys (Notice that the Flash doesn't get much use in many epîsodes), they just are ... too powerful, too much... still enjoyable, but it does make me wonder about how they can't beat the villains the first time around.
I really like the Unlimited more. While most of the characters sound silly to me (starchild is ridiculous in her costume and her powers) i liked the interaction they had and the plots (Cadmus and all). The serie had some plots left, it could have kept going for a while (loved the Batman Beyond plot resolution). There is character developpment (Hawkgirl, Vigilante, STRIPES and starchild...) much better than in the JL stuff. I quite enjoyed it. The idea of a big organisation of superhero is really interesting too.
A friend talked about it and I decided to read Red Son. What would have happened if Superman felt into Soviet Russia ? A really interesting take on it, with a surprising Batman (interesting the story relate to the explanation of Batman Beyond in JL) and Wonder woman. Green Lantern was here, but I must say I never liked him neither know much of his story so I can't relate to the eventual parrallels. It was well written (still, invulnerable immortal superman is boring) but it's good it only last 3 comics because the story would have suffered from a longer pace. I suggest peoples to check it.
Old Man Logan : been thinking about reading this one for many months. What would happen if the super villains of the world united and crushed out all the super heroes ? From this post apocalyptic start, they wrote a really nice story. It is really nicely drawn too and really nicely paced and such. A bit too graphic at times but a nice read.
Green Lantern the animated serie : so the first two episodes. It'll not be the new Thundercats, not really fan of GL but it does sound not too bad and the use of the Red Lanterns provide enemies that match his power (I wonder how man colors we will see. Some of the colored lanterns are ridiculous).
