Not to be outdone, they are making Kick-Ass a black girl too.

I'm not sure this is really comparable. Kick-Ass was told in three mini-series and was never meant to be an ongoing character throughout the years like Iron-Man and Thor. If they want to bring it back, then doing it in an anthology like style seems a good way to go. They can then mix up the main character and settings as they go. As the article says, think Doctor Who.

Agreed. I also thought the way they did that one X-Men title wasn't too bad -- established characters, just with an all-female team.

yup

Oh, of course he's black; how could I have ever missed that?

It makes sense in the context of the show. Barry Allen's adopted family, the Wests, are black (although I can't recall that ever being said; you have to, like, look at them and draw inferences and make certain assumptions from their skin color, hair and facial features).

FWIW I haven't followed the show this season. Does Barry end up getting w/ Iris and making babies?

This fall, Bendis/Gaydos return for a brand new Jessica Jones series, imaginatively titled Jessica Jones.

Alias (the original) was of course the best thing ever. Super-stoked.

Tonight I started watching the old Spawn animated series that HBO did in the 90s after finding it on the Amazon video offerings. Loved the artwork as a kid but never got into the comics (plus didnt get HBO back in the day). Gotta love Keith David's voice and the heaven/hell premise. Feels like playing Diablo.

More clues that Nightwing might come out as Bi-sexual.

He's actually a good candidate for this if DC decides to take his character in that direction. It wouldn't feel forced and people have been making jokes about it being a possibility for some time now.

EDIT: For those who don't know, Midnighter is a gay Batman analogy from the former Wildstorm universe who dated their version of Superman. When they merged the Wildstorm universe with DC, he made the transition.
