Comics this week

DC Universe Online: Legends #13- Oh…now we are going somewhere. Picking up where they left off last issue, writers Marv Wolfman and Tony Bedard are slowly but surely putting Brainiac’s plan into being. Showing how Brainiac managed to outfox both Lex Luthor and the heroes of the DCU is half the fun in this series and on that level, this series is going on nicely. I just hope the payoff is as good as the buildup.

S.H.I.E.L.D #2- This issue end the war between Isaac Newton and Leonardo Da Vinci and, more importantly, finally gave Leonid something worthwhile to do! Of course all this is overshadowed by the confusing, senseless end of the issue which even in the context of this maddening series made no sense. And that take some doing.

Secret Six #36–With this finale, writer Gail Simone closed the series with a big bang. I wasn’t surprised with the tragic end of the Six, betrayed by one of its own, and I wasn’t disappointed by it. The Secret Six will in all likelihood go down as legends in the supervillain community for what happen in this issue. Great end for the series and one more reason for me to hate the new DC revamp!
