    Just finished a much-delayed second read of Top 10. This time I took my sweet time to try and spot all the homages in the background.

    I found so many, and yet I'm sure I missed many more.

    It was also fun, paying more attention to the characters than to the storyline. Smax is such a tsundere.

    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Getting into a DC binge because of what's happening lately.

    I don't know how well received New 52 was but it's probably the easiest to get into.

    But what I really ended up liking was the DC Rebirth story and The Button, despite how I didn't really want the story of Watchmen interfered with. It was really moving what Wally was saying to Barry and how Barry was able to save him and Bruce getting to see his father again. I need to read Flashpoint.

    tbf, the presentation of introducing the Watchmen universe was pretty good.

    It might've been better had they just stuck to their guns and kept the hard reset but instead we get a bunch of leakage from pre-52 showing up and it isn't exactly the cream of the crop

    Makes sense

    I'm assuming then this new move was a saving throw to explain things, which I guess kind of works but yeah, still conflicted over Watchmen.

    What's going on now is Doomsday Clock and evil Batmen or something, I dunno what's going on with that

    oh yeah, Bruce proposing to Selina, let's see if this sticks

    At least Bat-marriage can be easily hand waved when editorial gets sick of it. Just have Selina pulling an absurdly long con. Not like Spidey needing Satan and a dying elderly relative to go back to bachelorhood.

    Even then it doesn't make sense.

    Like really? Strange can bend space and time to allow Peter to visit basically every superhuman on the planet in a single day looking for aid but can't fix a bullet wound?

    Doesn't Batman's no kill policy kinda make it hard for him to strike fear into the hearts of the major villains (Joker, etc.)? They all know that they can always try again with their plans if they fail. The specific type of bat that Batman is may as well be a fruit bat.
