Obviously it's DC's own blog so it pushes the company's comics as much as possible. It usually has a good line on news, previews and artwork as well and, generally speaking, it's a good read. Then today, I came across this post about Justice League: Generation Lost #6 and found myself wondering if I'd read a variant issue yesterday.
"JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #6 is such a game-changer for the series, is just SO BIG a revelation that by telling you ANYTHING at all would blow EVERYTHING for you. I mean, it’s HUGE!"
Really? Is it? We have a brief recap of Captain Atom's origin and he reveals that, a couple of issues ago, he was shunted into the year 2351 where there are no more heroes, the moon's badly broken and a lot closer to Earth than it should be.
"I certainly can’t tell you anything about a cameo by a DC heavyweight that will absolutely shock you to the core."
A "DC heavyweight" cameos? I don't know whether to laugh or cheer - as much as I like Power Girl, is she really a DC heavyweight? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for more Power Girl but wasn't exactly shocked "to the core."
"And writer Judd Winick would absolutely KILL ME if I revealed that when Captain Atom demands to know—"
The big reveal? Telegraphed pretty much from page 1 and no surprise at all.
I like The Source but this post was just nonsense.
