Harrison Wells was a character who should only have lasted for a single season on The Flash. He should have not been seen again at the premiere of season two like so many single-season villains before him. The reveal of his identity at the midway point of season one was interesting stuff that would have cemented him as one of the better—if not the best—bad guys Barry Allen has ever gone up against. I want to state unequivocally that I am thrilled a version of S.T.A.R. Labs’ original founder has stuck around since the pilot episode.
There’s never been a family fight quite like what we’ve been seeing in “The Oz Effect,” the pivotal Superman storyline that wrapped up this week in ACTION COMICS #991. Since its start, we’ve learned that Mr. Oz is really Jor-El, Superman’s Kryptonian father, who didn’t actually die during the destruction of Krypton, but found himself sent to Earth where he witnessed some of mankind’s brutal tendencies firsthand.
As we inch ever closer to year three of Rebirth, it's becoming more important than ever to look back at the mysteries swirling around at the heart of things, whether you're preparing yourself for the future (DOOMSDAY CLOCK, anyone?) or just trying to keep tabs on the status quo shifts in your favorite characters.
What do Nightwing, Robin, a crazed surgeon who wears a pig mask and a mysterious doctor who may or may not be an extra-dimensional demon have in common?
Well...more than you might expect.
The past year of Rebirth has represented a lot of dramatic change for just about every character in the DC Universe, but maybe none more so than Superman. This, of course, pretty much goes to follow. After all, he’s the character who is really at the center of it all, even before the tectonic shifts of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1.
Hi, my name is Meg and I’m a Batman fan.
Now, okay. You probably had one of two reactions reading that. You either thought “great, me too!” or “ugh, him?”
