What would you do about your hair?

Besides, we're at the age in which costumes are only applicable at conventions and parties.

Any conventions or parties coming up for you?

Finished the comics and I'm really surprised with the ending and also a bit dissapointed. I was really hoping for something else.

The character devolepment is nice though. And if they are going for a 3 hour movie it will contain allot of that.

Seeing the foto's from imdb when they show how they portrait the minutemen is priceless.



I'm curious how they transfer the last comic on film, can't wait.
Riligious people believe god created man, I believe man created god.
And after the Spore release you can be god ^^

Hooded Justice looks a bit...off in the picture. I don't know what it is, but he seems kinda frumpy or something.

glad I'm not the only one that noticed that...I feel like it's the look of the mask, and the 'belt' being too high up

Hooded Justice is supposed to look a bit off!  He was the first guy to put on a costume and fight criminals.  You can't expect them all to have costumes that look totally awesome if we are supposed to believe they made them themselves.
As for the ending I actually really enjoyed it.  At the time I had never read any serious piece of fiction that took that idea and went through with it instead of just making that a crazy megalomaniacs plot.  The characterization really explain why the story went that way and the great story telling and flushing out of the world really made you "feel" it when the whole thing unraveled.

So, hey, new trailer.

And, despite his new darker costume, I think Ozymandias will turn out alright, if only because Bubastis is still there.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

well, I just soiled myself. that was all kinds of awesome.

my only real complaint (because really, nothing can ever be perfect) is that I pictured manhattan's voice being a lot deeper.

and lulz at (what appears to be) the burning of superman in effigy at 2:14

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

You mean the black and white mask that changes over time?  That's Rorschach.

I did too, but I think thats only because I think of him as his big, blue self. If you consider his origin though, that voice works better.
