"The Amazo Virus: Quarantined"

Writer: Geoff Johns
Penciller: Jason Fabok
Inker: Jason Fabok
Cover: Fabok and Anderson

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Geoff Johns just doesn't hit like he used to. While the issue is a solid one, and without a doubt entertaining, worthy of the rating it receives, it's still hard to believe that this is a Johns story. It lacks imagination, creativity, the power that Johns' work can deliver when his application matches his talent. Instead we're given a generic virus story with a zombie at the end. Perhaps he's just pacing himself for Convergence, and this is better than average filler, but it's still filler. Part of the draw from recent events was seeing what the interaction and effect Luthor would have being on the team. None of what transpires necessitated Lex being made a Leaguer, and frankly, this tale will no doubt take time and light away from the more pressing questions of Luthor knowing Batman's identity, and Luthor having access to things like the Watchtower. It was also curious to see how Johns chose who would be affected by the virus. Flash and Cyborg make the best sense, but it's a wee dodgy to see Aquaman and Shazam laid up, while Batman is still up and about. Aquaman's Atlantean biology isn't quite human, though possibly human enough, but the abilities Shazam is endowed with should make him proof against diseases.

November 26, 2014: Supergirl Could Exist in Same World as Arrow and FlashPrint

Supergirl Greg Berlanti, the executive producer of current hit TV shows "Arrow" and "Flash", is the focus of a profile piece in the December 5, 2014 issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine (available now), in which he briefly mentions the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series.

    Later in the afternoon at his other office on the Warner Bros. lot, Berlanti meets with fellow producer Ali Adler and Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood to go over looks for their upcoming revamp of Supergirl. The show will follow 24-year-old Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, and with a twist that that could melt fanboy brains, Berlanti says it's possible this Supergirl could enter the worlds of Arrow and The Flash.

The "Supergirl" pilot is penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow), both of whom will be executive producers alongside Sarah Schechter (of Berlanti Productions) and Warner Bros. TV.
