========================================
 
Fallen World 5 - That's that.  Ending really only sets you up for the new Rai series coming soon.  But despite this being a Dan Abnett story, it was pretty good.  Maybe he just needs to stay away from the Titans.

Hit Girl Season Two 5 - Start of new Arc in Hong Kong and I already like this villain.  Mindy's got a worthy adversary for a change.

Isola 9 - Arrrrrgh!!  How am I supposed to wait for the next issue!!  Cliff hanger!!!!!  Arrrrgh!!!

Kick-Ass 15 - This reads so fast.  I may need to go ahead and buy up the next two issue and get caught up.  This Kick-Ass is definitely kick ass!

Redneck 23 - OH YEAH!!  I love this book.  It really does not come out enough.  Excrement is about to hit the fan!  Awesome awesome ending to this issue. And of course judgement will likely be coming from someone named Perry.

Sea of Stars 3 - This is a really weird comic.  And even weirder that it's a Jason Aaron comic.  I like it but, yeah, it's weird.

The Wicked + Divine 45 - And that's the end.  Last issue was really the end of the adventure and this issue jumps 40 years and epilogues everything.  Nice ending to a story that ran a bit too long.  Still, I'm glad I read it.  I get the feeling this was the one Keiron Gillen poured his heart and soul into.  I think he did well.

Uncanny X-Men 15 - Another good issue.  Although I don't think Hope would be doing what they have her doing.  I watched her grow up in the pages of Cable it was one of my favorite stories making her a favorite character.  This is out of character for her IMO.

War of the Realms 1 - This kicked off with a bang!  I may not read all of the tie-ins for this event but I think I am going to like it.

White Witch/Black Witch

Real name: Mysa Nal
Home world: Naltor
Powers: Spellcasting.
First appeared (as "The Hag") in Adventure Comics #350 (November 1966).
Joined in Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 2, #294 (December 1982).
The White Witch was created in 1966 by writer Jim Shooter and artist Curt Swan. Though introduced to the Legion back in the Silver Age, she did not actually become a Legionnaire until 1982, during the Great Darkness Saga.


Origin & History
Mysa Nal was the younger daughter of the High Seer of Naltor. Unlike her fellow Naltorians who have precognitive powers, Mysa was born "blind" in that she could not see into the future. This made Mysa an outcast among her people, resulting in an unhappy and lonely childhood. After her mother died, her older sister Nura Nal (who later became Dream Girl) promised to protect her from persecution. But Mysa refused the offer and instead traveled to the Sorcerer's World, where she studied the mystical arts. Mysa demonstrated a remarkable aptitude for magic and soon became an accomplished sorceress. She excelled in her studies to the point where even the evil sorcerer Mordru grew envious of her abilities, setting the stage for his later attempts to harness her power for himself.

Before mastering the magical arts Mysa originally had red hair and blue eyes, but as a side effect of her continued immersion in magic, her hair and skin gradually became chalk white and her eyes turned a bright red.

Mysa's first appearance was as the aged and ugly Hag, an evil witch. She was a member of the villainous Prince Evillo's Devil's Dozen. When the Legion Of Super-Heroes fought Evillo, two mysterious new Devil's Dozen recruits revealed themselves to be the Legionnaires Star Boy and Dream Girl (Mysa's sister) in disguise. Dream Girl then cast a spell that restored Mysa to her beautiful true form. It was later revealed that Mysa's transformation into the Hag was the work of the villainous wizard Mordru, who had long coveted Mysa's power for himself. Mysa later reappeared to aid the Legion as the White Witch during the Great Darkness Saga. She managed to summon the spirit of Darkseid's ancient enemy Izaya, who in turn brought about Darkseid's defeat. In return for her help the White Witch was offered Legion membership, so she joined the Legion of Super-Heroes and soon became close friends with fellow new Legionnaire Blok.

She helped Brainiac 5 to call in other Legionnaires from different realities to fight against Superboy-Prime and his Legion of Super-Villains. When Prime killed Kinetix, Mordru gained all of her magical powers (and all magic of Earth-247 with in her). Mordru then gravely injured fellow Legionnaire Blok, who was trying to protected Mysa. Enraged she used her most powerful spell "Aufero Magus Infusco" which caused all Mordu magical powers and his physical form to be absorbed into Mysa, causing her to transform into the Black Witch.

After the battle with Superboy Prime LOSV. Mysa and seriously injured Blok returned to Sorcerer's World, where she became the new ruler of the world. Mysa and Blok later proclaimed their love for one another, which caused the darkness within her to be more easily controled and she magically repaired Blok rocky body. Black Witch sent her apprentice Glorith to Earth to become a member of the Legion Academy.

On your list of favorite Legionnaires where does White Witch/Black Witch land?  For me she lands at #xx.    

What's your opinion of White Witch/Black Witch?

========================================
 
Age of X-Man: Prisoner X 2 - This is a good series.  It's likely going to be the lynchpin for undoing this whole alternate world.

Immortal Hulk 16 - This series is so crazy.  Good issue starting to peel away at the mystery of the resurrecting hulks.

Major X 1 - Interesting first issue.  I'm onboard.  I kept looking for how feet are drawn because I know it drives Perry crazy.   Cheesy

Doctor Aphra 30 - Still a great book.  Love this buddy arc with Aphra and the killer C3PO.

X-Force - maybe the art is wearing me down.  This issue was ok.

Now is not the time I give Jeff some crap about the Cowboys; now is when it's discussed; what the hell is up with the Cowboys?!

Now, I'm not a fan of them. I think it's because every year fandom is told how great they are and what we should expect from them-and then they don't do anything. But THAT personal POV aside, why did they lose to the JETS?
