Teen Titans #10(June 2004)

Well, now we go from fun-loving, immature Impulse Bart to pseudo-intellectual Kid Flash Bart... Why must Geoff Johns destroy everything I love?

Impulse #86(July 2002)

Impulse, the greatest Justice Leaguer of all-time? Sounds good to me!

Impulse #30(Oct. 1997)

You know, I really do miss this series... It was good, clean, stupid fun...

Impulse #8(Nov. 1995)

Somehow I get the feeling Max Mercury won't be winning any guardian of the year awards after this display...

Wolverine #22(Jan. 2005)

How could I not post something from one of my favorite Wolverine stories from the past 10 years, Enemy of the State?

Wolverine #10(March 2004)

Be sure to check out Falisha's AWESOME Wolverine sketch over at her blog, Falisha Ann's Corner!So what do you think, did Wolvie off her or not?

Wolverine #5(Nov. 2003)

Jeez, talk about a face only his mother could love...

Black Canary #4(Oct. 2007)

You know, usually I'll say, "Never mess with an Amazon", but maybe I should alter that to Never mess with Black Canary! Ouch!

Birds of Prey #20(Aug. 2000)

I can happily state that I have never been twisted for information. With that said though, I am a bit intrigued to see what exactly that entails...

JSA #21(April 2001)

Dinah, Dinah, Dinah... THIS is the man you should have stayed with!!!

Green Arrow #101(Oct. 1995)

So Ollie dies in an airplane explosion near Metropolis. All of his former teammates and friends get together in the back room of Guy Gardner's bar and reminisce, but NONE of them think to inform Dinah as to Ollie's fate! That task ultimately fell to Ollie's son Connor(who hadn't even met Dinah!), as seen here.

X-Men Omega #1(June 1995)

We might as well close out AOA week with a scene from the final part of the AOA saga(as well as one of my all-time favorite comics), X-Men Omega.

Generation Next #3(May 1995)

As much as I love this x-over, it wasn't all good. I EASILY could have done without the Gen Next part of the AOA x-over, it was probably the weakest link in the whole story...

Gambit and the X-Ternals #2(April 1995)

Deathbird leading the Starjammers... That's just a strange sight to behold...

Amazing X-Men #2(April 1995)

Ah yes, Abyss... Here's another character who was 1000% better in the AOA then in the mainstream Marvel U.

Factor-X #1(March 1995)

Even during the Age of Apocalypse Mr. Sinister was scheming against pretty much everybody!

Monday, April 5, 2010

X-Men Alpha #1(Feb. 1994)

Instead of spotlighting one particular character this week, I'm going to take a look at the GREATEST X-Men story ever told, the Age of Apocalypse! And how better to begin AOA week then with Magneto reminiscing about his long dead love, Prof. X? I mean friend... His long dead FRIEND, Prof. X!

Batman #424(Oct. 1988)

Yeah, the writing was on the wall regarding Jason Todd's future(or lack there of)by this point... You know what the sad thing is? If Jason Todd would have been introduced just a few years later, during the kill-happy 1990's, he probably would have easily wound up surpassing Dick Grayson in popularity...

Batman #416(Feb. 1988)

Remember when I posted the pre-Crisis meeting between Dick Grayson and Jason Todd?(If you don't, here it is) Well, after the Crisis, DC decided to change up the first meeting between Dick and Jason, and the preceding scene is what happens during that meeting. In my humble opinion, had DC stuck with the original meeting, there wouldn't have been such a fan backlash against young Jason, and that means there's probably a good chance he wouldn't have suffered his grisly fate. I can't help but wonder how things could have been different had Dick accepted Jason as his replacement, instead of resenting him... So, am I right or wrong? What do you guys think?

Detective Comics #581(Dec. 1987)

Jeez, I guess Bruce has never heard of child labor laws...

Detective Comics #571(Feb. 1987)

Maybe it's just me and I'm reading too deeply into things, but MAN was I getting a weird vibe off of some of Batman's dialogue here...
