The State of the Dick Grayson Batman
It was nearly a year ago when I asked, “why can’t Dick Grayson remain as Batman?” In fact, amidst the rumors of his imminent demise I had asked, “What’s wrong with more than one Batman, when there is more than one Green Lantern?”
Apparently DC heard my plea and put Grant Morrison on the case. We know have Batman Inc. and the guardian of Gotham…

Before we begin this review of JLA #53 which concludes the “Omega” storyline let’s take a quick look at how JLA #52 ended.
With Batman on his knees.
You read that right. Batman on bended knee, hands out and head bowed in supplication.
“I kneel before the Omega Man.”
Now in today’s abbreviated parlance that is a real “WTF” moment. So when I picked up my copy of JLA #53 this past week I was eager to see how low the Caped…

The issue starts with Supergirl and Jesse Quick racing around the Monitor, doing chores and talking about losing loved ones and fate, when they are visited by a woman claiming to be the Green Lantern of her world and in need of help. Jade is then seen talking to Faust about the Starheart when she is alerted. And then we see Dick sparring with Donna Troy who assures Dick that her bottom line is that now, even though…

This is pretty much a filler, come down issue, which is good considering how intense the ride was in the last few months for the JLA.
Dick appears only in wrap around scenes at the start and end of the issue. Supergirl is seen lugging a giant saxophone into the Bat-Bunker at the start of the issue, which apparently is Dick’s “memento” from a battle he and Supergirl had versus “the Murder Maestro” to which Dick said it reminded…

It's time for another 2-in-1 showcase spectacular as we wrap up "The Dark Things" crossover that ties in with Brightest Day.
We begin with JSA #42, with Kyle Rayner joining the fun on the dark side of the moon. After Kyle explains his mission, Obsidian convinces Jade to join with him, and they are merged into a being controlled by the Starheart, and yet both have their own voices speaking through it. So Kyle and Jadesidian…

In the 1960s, writer Bob Haney got the idea to take all the younger characters in the DC Universe and mash them together as a team. Not unlike the very successful Justice League Of America. And so in the summer of 1964, in the pages of Brave and The Bold #54, Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad teamed up. A year later, in issue 60 the team got its first female member in Wonder Girl, and a name, Teen Titans. And by 1966 the team would have its…
