DC Zero Issues have another look at
To mark the one year anniversary of DC Comic New 52, september has been tabbed as Zero Month. The New 52 titles will be getting 0 numbered issues all month featuring standalone stories that tell the origins of a personality or team, Or offer surprising new understanding of the New 52 Universe.

While it title Green Lantern Corps 0 this issue deals almost solely with Guy Gardner. I alsway thought Guy Gardner origin to be well done this was so simple. He was one of two contenders that the dying Abin Sur found to inherit his power ring along with Hal Jordan. conversely since Jordan was closer, He took over as alien choice. The zero issue retains most of Gardner original backstory. He is the son of an abusive father who was a cop. Gardner seemed to be a cop but was kicked off the force. I don believe it was ever stated why he was kicked off earlier. Tomasi fills in the gaps by having him kicked off the force for an incident that got

innocent people killed although guy sustains his innocence. Tomasi also adds in a brother and sister who will also on the force, Further ostracizing him or her self from his father.
Tomasi has Guy getting his ring for the first time, With no mention of Hal Jordan or Abin Sur, When his brother is pinned down by a harsh street gang and Guy arrives to help. Guy has

yet to develop his infamous Moe Howard haircut but we eventually see him tackle an unhealthy alien during one of his initial missions and earning his graduation honors from Kilowog.
This issue fits the bill of filling in a few gaps in Guy Gardner life without completely changing his origin so for me that makes the issue a success. We also get to see where the commitment for his Green Lantern leather jacket comes from. The art by Pasarin and Hanna uses the glossy, Energetic look you need in a GL title so no conditions there. Not only has it been assimilated into the New DCU, And not only was Deathstroke origin retconned to happen to be part of Team 7, But now the origins of the Suicide Squad and Amanda Waller are tied to Team 7. This represents the paradox essential New 52. Some character origins are completely changed and others kept the same with not very many new details filled in.
There doesn seem to be a good reason to make Waller part of Team 7 nor for turning her from an management, Behindthescenes look to an actual soldier and mercenary. The disastrous outcome leads Waller to develop a new team, A team with personnel who can be viewed as expendable Suicide Squad!
much more, This was all attainable removed changes to Waller character. She always been a lightning rod has a character who like to sit back and pull the strings without being actively involved. This seems like change for the health of change. That part have not changed. What Paul Cornell does is fill in some of the events leading to a bonding for both Etrigan and Jason. This is the most popular story of this batch of zero issues.
Etrigan and Jason Blood share a bond little one they were forced to coexist together. Both were servants who disenchanted their masters. for the Etrigan, It was Lucifer who belittles the rhyming demon necessary skills, Eventually leading Etrigan to rebel and raise an army through the

Lord of Hell. Jason is the aspiring apprentice to Merlin but grows tired of the menial tasks he is given to try and do. After a meeting with the precognitive Morgan le Fay who sees Jason rage consumes everyone who is close to him, Merlin make a pact with Lucifer to imprison the demon within Blood body and as the pair bonded over centuries they began work to fulfill both of their set goals.
Hate to sound like a broken record but Cornell again does what all the Zero issues should do us new insight into the origins of these characters without making radical changes. Nothing that Cornell throws into the mix ends up causing any dependence on a retconned origin. Chang art was inconsistent with some panels looking bold and wellrendered a few looked rush and sketchy.
Superboy is practically as old as Superman himself. He made his first look in More Fun Comics 101 in 1945, lower than seven years after Superman debut. Answer fan requirement for even more Superman, DC in order to create Superman and tell the tales of Superman as a teenager in Smallville. Superboy got his own title in 1949 and it ran for almost 30 years until being canceled in 1977. So this is a character that but has existed a LONG time. Perhaps no character has seen as much upheaval with their history than Superboy.
marriage events in Crisis on Infinite Earths in the mid1980s, superman origin was changed so that he didn become a super hero until he had become an adult, expertly erasing 40 years of history. Of course much maintenance had to be done since Superboy plays a key role in the far future with the Legion of Superheroes. After the Death of Superman as a result of Doomsday, your new Superboy, A clone of a super hero arose. Then there is a Superboy Prime notably of the Infinite Crisis storyline and like I said, It a snarled mess.
That all brings us to the new Superboy who is a fusion of human and Kryptonian DNA but lies less competent in a tube, the main topic of experimental testing. As the clone is about to be destroyed its defensive mechanisms kick in in order sustain its life. to tell the truth ok, So far we already seen everything in the first issue of Superboy. What DeFalco adds is some history of Kryptonians growing clones to actually work as

laborers until the clones revolt, Led by their alpha dog, Kon. Their rebellion was squelched but not before it nearly demolished Krypton. at the moment, Frankly this is one character that merely should have been left off the guest list for the New DCU. His historic past is convoluted enough already. He garnered my trust. The zero issue doesn add much depth to the smoothness, for the.
