Roll Call! Six Characters to Keep an Eye On During Dark Nights: Metal

Now that you’ve made it through both DARK DAYS: THE FORGE and DARK DAYS: THE CASTING, it’s time to really start digging into the nitty-gritty before the event itself, DARK NIGHTS: METAL, explodes across the DC Universe this summer.

And there’s definitely a lot to sort through. With just two prelude books, Metal has already managed to set the stage for the next year of Rebirth in a major way. It might even feel a little bit intimidating if you’re trying to come at the event with all your super heroic homework done and ready to go.

Arrow: Ollie's Law

It’s been phrased differently over time, but Murphy’s Law basically breaks down to this: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

It’s safe to say that this pretty much sums up tonight’s episode.

But I’d like to step back for a brief second. I saw something in the comments section of last week’s column that I’ve noticed for a while now and it looks like others see it, too.

Curtis aka Mr. Terrific—err, Mr. Comedian?

Arrow: We're Back, Baby!

Welcome back, guys!

Hope everyone had a nice break. I’m trying to thaw out from the frigid Midwest cold and ice, but ready to bring this column to you.

I guess the best place to start would be with the obvious: Laurel!

Errr… fake Laurel, that is.

I sort of thought something was up when we saw her at the end of last episode. Part of me believed it could really be her, but another (bigger) part of me knew it had to be some kind of work.

Arrow: Isn't it Terrific?

Yes!

I’ve been waiting to write about this for a couple episodes, but didn’t want to until someone actually spoke the name Mr. Terrific. Thankfully, it finally happened in tonight’s episode.

I’m a big Mr. Terrific fan—partly for his involvement with the Justice Society of America (one of the coolest teams of all time), but more so as a man of high character and also for a personal reason that I’ll get to in a minute.

But first, I want to touch on something that happened in this episode…

What did you think about that ending with Wild Dog?
