I like Spider-man 700, that was a good twist

Haven't really read the book yet but from some scans I have seen, Stegman has done a great job with the art.

Last weekend, I watch Superman Batman Apocalypse on Netflix when it caught my eye. I was trying out Netflix for the first time.

I have no knowledge of Comic Books, and I have to say this movie's title is misleading! It was about Supergirl's origin. I wonder why they didn't put her name.

It was a fun movie to watch, and I got to love Batman's comical scenes. The action between Wonder Woman, Barda, and the three Furies was spectacular. The animation is really fluid and dynamic.

The negative I say without spoiling everyone who hasn't watch it is that the movie is rushed.

Comparing this movie to Batman: Under the Red Hood film, I realized the movie was probably covering a huge comic book story arc. We're in Metropolis and then we're in Wonder Woman's Amazonian island and finally, we're in Darkseid's world. When it's rushed, it doesn't build up sympathy, drama, or tension for Supergirl and her loved ones.

Here's the video of the fight.

@takashichea:

You what to know something, it wasn't a big arc and it was pretty much what happen in the comic (they only cut the JL and change the Superman and Darkseid fight)

@Destinyheroknight:

Cool! There was not much of a Superman and Darkseid fight. It was more Supergirl, and it was better suited for the movie since it shows how much her character improved.

@takashichea: Well the arc this movie was based on, had a far less misleading tilte, "The Supergirl from Krypton" but you do have to admit that "Apocalypse" sounds better. And it wasn't really that big, just 6 issues and it all happened in just one book, "Superman/Batman". As for the movie, it wasn't bad but the book was better. They just changed a lot of things after a certain point. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't read th book first.

@takashichea:

Well, in the comic she didn't fight Darkseid (it was just Superman and it wasn't a long fight)

What do you guys and girl think of the whole Superior Spider-Man thing?

I like the idea, and I thought Amazing Spider-Man 700 set it up well.

You must be one of the few people I know that like it lol

How do you feel about it?

(I actually did a video review of AMS 700)
