Why Black Canary Should be Leading the Justice League

There’s a pretty big debate about who the true leader of the Justice League is. It’s often a toss-up between who deserves this weighty position of leadership versus who may be best suited for the part. If we’re being even more honest with ourselves, it’s often an argument that comes down to Batman and Superman (anyone remember when Nightwing led the Justice League? That was pretty awesome!).

Arrow: A Standalone Issue of Sorts?

If you read comics, you’re probably familiar with a “filler issue.”

For those who might not be, filler issues often serve as a break between story arcs. Sometimes they occur mid-storyline (which is weird), or they serve to “introduce” a new creative team. Either way, the stories usually have nothing to do with what’s currently going on—it’s usually just a simple/traditional or fun plot that lives outside of a major arc.

Tonight’s Arrow had a little bit of filler issue vibe to it for me.

Arrow: Pulled Back In

There’s an oft-quoted line in Godfather III where Michael Corleone says: “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”

How does that line relate to Arrow? I’ll get there. But first…

We’re walking a fine line here between a super hero show and a daytime soap opera, people.

Arrow: Slow Start, Strong Finish

Yoooo! We’re back!

With the long break between seasons, it feels like forever since we discussed some Arrow. I was eager for tonight’s episode and just as eager to jot down my thoughts.

First things first…

I heard from a reliable source that that a number of NFL teams have called Ollie to inquire about the status of Curtis after displaying his arm strength by throwing the T-Sphere to chase down that rocket. What a cannon!

Back to reality…

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey: Fandom Turned Frightening

Ah, social media. If you're reading this, chances are you're familiar with the myriad ways internet users can share the moments of their lives with the world. Social media offers a platform for users to share everything from occasions of import, like weddings, to less grand but still important occurrences like trying new desserts. Because of social media, we connect in some way with more people than ever before—more so than we did in the days of message boards and chat rooms.

Chapter-by-Chapter: Green Arrow Vol. 2

Hey, hey! Matt Ross, here. If you don’t know me, I cover Arrow for the #DCTV Couch Club. A few months ago, I wrote a readthrough that looked at GREEN ARROW VOL. 1, so when I heard Vol. 2 was out, I was excited to jump into the new trade!

After opening, I did what I think most of us do and immediately flipped through the book as a way to get a feel for what I was about to read.
