Justice League #15 starts a new period for DC’s flagship title. Premier artist Jim Lee steps aside to give the penciling duties over to Ivan Reis, formerly of Aquaman. Geoff Johns stays on as writer, to go along with his duties on Aquaman. Johns now kicks off his crossover of both books, titled “Throne of Atlantis”.
Atlantis is attacked by a submarine and retaliates by attempting to floor heavily populated cities, such as Gotham City and Metropolis. Aquaman finds himself stuck in the middle of this escalating conflict. Especially when he is the one behind the Atlantean War Plans.

There might not be another Marvel NOW! title with more drama surrounding it than Avengers Arena. It all stems from the premise of the book…..Avengers Academy meets Battle Royale/Hunger Games. Vintage Marvel villain Arcade traps 16 teenage superheroes on Murderworld and forces them to fight to their death, until only one is crowned the winner. Avengers Arena is taking the place of Avengers Academy, and stars fan favorite characters from Avengers Academy and Runaways.

I have been a lifelong fan of the X-Force title. Rob Liefeld’s X-Force #1 was one of the very first comics I ever bought, along with Jim Lee’s X-Men #1. I’ve seen many writers and artists come and go, from Fabien Nicieza to Jeph Loeb to Tony Daniel to Greg Capullo to Adam Pollina.
Even though Cable was originally the one who created the team, he has not been associated with the name for many years. That all changes this week as Cable and X-Force #1 hits comic book stores. The Cable we are presented with looks slightly different than the Cable we are accustomed to seeing. He is no longer suffering from the techno-organic virus, but his reasons for reforming X-Force remain a mystery that will unfold as the series progresses. Meanwhile, they are hunted fugitives on the run from the Uncanny Avengers team.

This issue we find out exactly how Doctor Octopus pulled off this body heist, and what Spider-Man plans on doing to save himself from death.
