    Very nice episode. I'll pass on Booster as I've not read that issue since it came out. I did read Captain Atom this week and enjoyed it. The characterisations were good, even if we don't know which versions of some of the characters we have. Mind, an interview I read indicated that this mini-series is something of a course correction to the New 52 version so I expect we'all have the post-Crisis look before long. I do hope so!

    What are you two doing pronouncing 'Eiling' differently to me, it's obviously 'Eye-ling'? Feel free to re-record the relevant sections.

    I reckon that by the time Nathaniel meets Dr Megala again the scientist will have been somewhat shrunken as an after-effect of the energy blast that sent our hero into the past. Speaking of which, has he ever quantum-jumped in that direction previously? I don't recall such an occurrence.

    Excellent theory about Nathaniel re-fathering Peggy and Randy, that would be great but hopefully they'll get new names ... 'Peggy' was hopelessly archaic even in the Eighties and 'Randy', well, >snicker<. I'd love the post-Crisis history to be restored, complete with Plastique marriage.

    I'm not keen on the tweaked logo (did you ever notice Marvel nicked that for Carol Danvers a couple of years back, they even used it to promote the film?), the atom symbol is lost on that 'O', as well as being too on the nose.

    I do hope the transmutation powers go, I've never liked them, he's powerful enough without stepping into Firestorm's territory.

    It's great to have Bates and Weisman back, they were so underrated as a team, while Will Conrad is a superb artist. As for Ivan Nunes's colour work, it's astonishingly good; if someone isn't offering him an exclusive, they're missing a trick.
