    I liked Outsiders, Captain Boomerang Junior has a lot to do with it though.

    I can certainly understand that (except I love Ian's art). Not even sure why I like the character so much myself.

    Invincible. Great read. isnt bogged down with stupid stuff, and is a constant page turner.

    Wow. Either you didn't pay any attention to the title and topic of this thread or you just don't care.

    Anyway, Superman as Devilz said, Superman is one of the most boring characters ever. He's to powerful and the only decent villain ever created for him was Luthor. I remember I got into Superman at the Death period and while I enjoyed the Reign, everything after was crap. It was just a matter of how long the villain would keep Superman occupied.

    However the current series were good, well 2 of 3. Chuck Austen did a good fun job on Action with Gog, and Rucka did an awesome run on Adventures with the Ruin story.

    As for Supergirl, I am more interested in the character because of the introduction. Years after Superman comes to earth, his bigger cousin suddenly appears with no recollection of anything? Curious indeed.

    Nightwing was utterly terrible and I hope you didn't pick it up. It had some of the worst dialouge I have ever read in my life.

    Stay far away. Very far.

    I haven't read a ton of them, but of the ones I have read, my quick take:

    Robin - very good.
    Detective - excellent.
    Superman - good.
    Batman - meh.
    Nightwing - meh.

    Quick update with the OYL stuff I read this week:

    Robin: fantastic, it gripped me enough to make sure the books tays on my list at least through the end of this storyline.

    Catwoman: pretty good. I'll stick around to see who Helena's father is (or more accurately to confirm the obvious assumption), but I doubt I'll stay around much after that. Still, this issue is worth it if for no other reason than to see Batman with a teddy bear. :lol 

    Hawkgirl: disappointing. Not bad, really, but nowhere near as good as I'd hoped. Oddly, it seems like Walt Simonson forgot that there were going to be pictures to go with his story. At least that's how this book reads.

    Supergirl and the Legion of Superheroes: Not bad. I'm not much of a Legion fan, though, so it's hard for me to really judge the quality of this one. Humorously, it is set "One-thousand and one years later."

    JSA Classified: I loved it. Not as good as Robin, but still a great read. The cameo appearance by Scandal from Villains United was very welcome.

    It was pretty terrible. The art was inconsistent, Dick was written like an idiot, and the dialouge was just bad.

    Tim Drake, Jason Todd, we don't know yet, and if you're talking Infinite Crisis #5 it was the Golden Age/Earth-2 Wonder Woman.
