NB of the Week

Be It By Pounds
Or Be It By Tons,
None Shall Escape
The Pressure of the Runs.

Justice League #35
Now that Luthor is a member of the League, he and Bruce Wayne have partnered companies. Yes, Wayne Tech is now in business with LuthorCorps. Only it's now what you'd think... Actually, it's probably exactly what you think. The League knows Luthor is still evil and now that Bruce is on the inside, they have the chance to catch Luthor in illegal activity. As the rest of the League waits outside, Bruce walks through everything with his new partner. Only the League isn't the only set of eyes watching as a masked man blows his way inside. As a fight emerges, Luthor goes to suit up only to find that a rupture has occurred and his secret Amazo Virus has began to contaminate everything. Finally, Johns has made the League a book worth reading.

Daredevil #9
The purple children of the Purple Man have killed their father and are now trying to find sanctuary. I think. Not actually sure what they're doing but they're wrecking havoc and have stolen a police car. Which means it's Daredevil time. Only the purple-power-of-persuasion has changed with the offspring as they cause others to feel whatever they want. Daredevil is overcome and jumps off a bridge. Only to find himself face-to-face with the not quite dead Purple Man.

Miles Morales: the Ultimate Spider-Man #11
Miles confronts Pet about how he's still alive and if he is even the real Pete as he claims to be. Along for the ride is Maria Hill and soon followed by Aunt May and Gwen. Sadly, the reunion is cut short as Norman Osborn has found his way there as well. As Pete takes the others to safety, Miles goes after Osborn now that he knows his stings can do major damage. Before he fully wins though, Osborn throws out his trump card: he knows the truth about Miles' powers and the truth about his father.

Supreme Blue Rose #4
Turns out we are in a supreme transitional instance and has lead to a "destabilisation of local spacetime" with has in turn led to a restart of time. Only something has gone wrong. A "bubble continuum" has been created and contains previous supreme instances. "Time is extremely fluid and chaotic." What does all this mean? Hell if I know. But believe it or not, it does shed light onto the first three issues. Ellis is a crazy, often brilliant writer if you can make it through.

Earth 2: World's End #2
Darkseid is coming and he's bring his new Apokolips with him. From the depths of the open fire pits from the Horsemen. As the Wonders disperse to take care of each, we focus on War as she shows why she is so aptly named. By the end, she now has Huntress, Red Tornado and Power Girl under her control. Batman and Val Zod are gonna have their hands full. DC's newest and currently third weekly title is off to a pretty good start.

New Avengers #25
Not much happening here and we essentially just see Hulk, Captain Britain, Beast and Reed Richards during what we saw last issue with Cho being captured. They spy in on his interrogation and Reed sees just how pissed Sue is with him. At the end, Black Panther contacts them saying they were betrayed and shortly teleports into the lair. He informs them that the Golden City has fallen and Wakanda is no more.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #39
Old Hob has convinced the Turtles and Splinter to give thought to his mutant army. Splinter's blood with the ooze is a mean combo and Hob wants them all to join together. Too bad Bebop and Rocksteady have come to crash the party. And in the middle of all this, Donny has stepped away on his own, feeling that Krang and the Technodrome should be the priority. Wouldn't be a Turtle comic without family tension.
