Here's a bunch of stuff from the big convention this weekend.

-----

Dan Didio STILL keeps saying that Wally West doesn't have much longer to live in the DC Universe... He's kinda pissing me off with that, but it IS starting to get funny. His latest Wally Death sentence occurred when he was asked 'Where Wally West can be found in a year from now?' and he answered "In back issues." ...come on, THAT'S funny.

Didio also insists that the 'Havok' storyline isn't part of the regular DC continuity, meaning that Maxwell Lord was never a cyborg. What the hell!!!

DC has finally announced that INFINITE CRISIS is a 'sequel' to CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. We kinda knew this already with all the 'old gang' starting to pop up (Psycho Pirate!) but they kept saying that it wasn't.

Greg Rucka claims that it was Keith Giffen's own idea to have Maxwell Lord shoot Blue Beetle's brains out. ...well DAMN!

Howard Chaykin, a guy who's famous for writing 'asshole characters' (See AMERICAN FLAGG and AMERICAN CENTURY), is writing a Guy Gardner series due out next year. THANK YOU!

The 'Crisis Counseling' panel at the convention also hinted that we'd see multiple 'Earths' again, which I have no problem with and welcome the idea.

Donna Troy will be showing up in 'MANY' different books, bringing my fears of her becoming the new WONDER WOMAN more into reality... DAMN YOU DC!!!

The straight the DVD DR. STRANGE movie, which follows after the AVENGERS one, will be based on J Michael Straczynski's STRANGE miniseries.

Also, Samuel Jackson did NOT do the voice for Nick Fury... sadly. Let's hope for a live action film down the line, I suppose.

Ultimate Vision will be a woman. With huge knockers, it seems.

Robert Kirkman's taking over ULTIMATE X-MEN when Brian K Vaughn's run ends next year.

X-STATIX returns next year, Peter David is writing it.

J2, which was a decent book from the 'M2' line a few years ago, is getting reprinted in digest form. I'm rather shocked at this. It is based on the idea that Juggernaut's son gets his powers and decides to be a good guy. It was a good read, thought short lived.

During 'The Other', Peter Parker will be losing a vital part of his body. Why am I no longer interested in this storyline any more?

Death's Head returns to the Marvel Universe in AMAZING FANTASY #17

IDW's doing a Transformers BEAST WARS miniseries. I will but two copies.

Daniel Knave, the guy who created CARNIVALE, will be writing IRON MAN after Warren Ellis finishes his run on the book... when ever THAT finally finishes.

-----

Other stuff...

JLA #119: HOLY SHIT! Awesome ending to this story. WHO WAS that red caped bastard? Is Martian Manhunter dead now too? Red Tornado kicks some ASS!

OMAC PROJECT #6: If they turn Booster Gold into the new Blue Beetle, I think I might cry. That would be so PERFECT! Also great to see that it's Ted Kord's work that saves the day, not Batman's. That's a killer of and ending for THIS book as well. How many characters from the Giffen era JUSTICE LEAGUE are left, with Rocket Red dying?

ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #884: I'm starting to think that Lex Luthor is Ruin, and not Pete Ross... call it a hunch. This issue is also getting me to think that we already have 'multiple Earths' back because of the crazy Luthor walking around in the power suit. I'd be cool with that. Lois thinks Wonder Woman did the right thing in killing Max Lord. This is NOT surprising.

NEW AVENGERS #11: I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Ronin is really Blade... even though I still want him to be D-MAN!!!

I'm not usually one of those guys that says "OMG Because of that I am *never* reading this book again," but after the whole Stacey twins thing I actually did stop reading 'Amazing' and it doesn't look like I'm really missing anything. I personally think "The Other" has a pretty bad premise and is just leading to the further deconstruction of the Spider-Man character. First the web shooters are gone thanks to some hokey storytelling, and now all this Thor-esque mystic stuff to further muddy the waters. It kind of worked early in JMS' run because it all led up to the debut of Morlun and Ezekiel's death which was perfectly fine. But "The Other" is a total retread of a villain that wasn't that interesting to begin with, and sets the stage for a potentially fatal altering of the Spider-Man character. In my opinion AMS has travelled so far away from more traditional Spider-Man stories that it has totally alienated the character from the readers.

I'm calling it RIGHT NOW: Peter Parker loses his ability to make organic webbing in "The Other".

I quit ASM after the "9/11" issue. Magneto crying in the ruins of the WTC? Bleh. A mutant who has murdered many many many people over the years to further his beliefs (including sinking a Russian Sub) crying over a bunch of HUMANS getting slaughtered by someone else? Nope. Maybe he was bitter a HUMAN did it before HE could?

Not to mention that I found the original Morlun story boring as well as ridiculous. Spider-Man's origin as receiving his powers as a result of the bite he got from a radioactive spider has worked just fine since the early 60's, but now someone comes along and implies that might not have necessarily been the case? Ugh.

Everything I've seen about stories that have come down the pike since have only backed me up in my mind that I made the right choice. I miss Spidey and might give the new Peter David Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man series a shot after this "Other" nonsense is over. Maybe.

I never read the 9/11 issue, so I don't know exactly what happened, but I will say in Magneto's defense that he is not nearly the mass murderer he is always made out to be. Seriously, exect for the crew of the Lenin (who he killed in self defense when they aimed nuclear weapons at him), and the people in his village (who allowed his daughter to burn to death), can you even name someone he's killed? Magneto's attempted to kill a lot of people, but he's never really been that successful at it.
