    Didnt see one started, but figured, what the hell....its been a while since I started a thread in the comics board. Anyone else looking forward to this? Personally I dont care if Jimmy Olsen dies, but what I am excited about is Mary Marvel getting some love (but not the good kind :p ) With some of the rumors about her, I have a feeling she might become the new "Black Adam" Check out this cover for countdown 47 http://www.marvelfamily.com/images/misc/Countdown/Countdown047.jpg Looks good :)

    Speaking of which...

    I've read various things about various versions of different characters in that picture, but I just took a second look at Superman. Particularly the symbol.

    New Earth-2, anyone?

    I'm not as in the loop on current DC continuity as I used to be.
    What is noteworthy about Superman's symbol?
    It looks exactly like it should to me?

    Interesting outfit for Batman.

    Nothing really special about it - they've just modified it a little to resemble the Superman Returns S shield a little more. At least that's what Kubert's done over in Action Comics. I don't know if it's a company-wide mandate or not, maybe it's just artist's choice.

    As for Batman, I don't notice anything different about his costume at all.

    I'm rather curious why Black Adam is in that picture.

    Yeah, what is Black Adam doing in that pic? And is white Shazam just Cap. Marvel in white with a new white 'do? And for how long has Bats had the points on his shoulders? I've noticed it for a few months (I don't have his comics in my pull), but wondered when they had made that change.

    Captain Marvel is now just Marvel and he is the guardian of magic, taking the place of the dead(?) Shazam.

    The villains in the picture that I'm curious about are Black Adam (not sure how he can be on the good side after 52), the OMAC and Monarch.

    I'm also curious how Jason Todd because a good guy. He was pretty crazy in the recent Nightwing trade that came out.

    I don't really think this is a spoiler because 52 is over, but just in case: the multiverse is back with 52 different realities.

    Captain Marvel has taken the place of the deceased Shazam, and now known as Marvel.

    Captain Marvel Jr. lost his powers and has gone through a trial to take the place of Captain Marvel (he doesnt even have to say the words "Shazam" to change).

    Mary Marvel also lost her powers, and was in a coma when last seen in "Trails of Shazam". Maybe she finds out that new magic word that changes Black Adam.

    Maybe it is, but in the picture I was referring to it more closely resembles the S symbol of Earth-2 Supes. At least as far as I can see.

    Read the first issue. It was okay. Not as interesting as 52's start, but interesting enough to keep me interested. I'll definitely be back next week, but I'm not guaranteeing I'll be around for the whole thing.

    It isnt monarch in the picture... it's Captain Atom. He uses that suit since he returned in the Battle for Bludhaven serie.

    That's right. I actually have the trade where they put him in the Monarch armor.

    In this image: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:D ccountdown.png

    Batman appears to be wearing a suit of armor and has a scimitar.

    I was wondering what happened to the storyline behind this image. I thought it was for World War III, but I guess I misunderstood.

    WTF, Jimmy Olsen knows Nightwing's identity?! And apparently everyone on New Earth knows Jason Todd's life story!

    Didn't know you were a colorist before, but after reading the first issue, I approve and look forward to the rest of the series.:) 

    Kinda wondering what's up with Todd as well...but I guess things will unravel soon enough.
