Lobo, Braniac and Zatanna

Been watching Supergirl instead of reading DC Comics Presents and a couple of cool moments happened... First, there was someone hunting down prisoners and Alex & Hank were talking. One of them said something about an intergalactic bounty hunter. Alex said, "you don't think..." Hank said no - they'd know if it was him. I assume they were talking about Lobo.

This is a pic of the first issue I had with him in it...



And of course he's in Injustice...


Next episode there's a female 'computer' villain. She is called Brainiac 8. :-) I should have recognized the lights on her head, like Brainiac 5 had in the Legion books...

As for DC Comics Presents, the only issue I've read recently is issue 18. Again, the team up co-star is someone I never read. The story was okay - it tries to explain "magic" as energy from another dimension. Guess that's a scientific way of explaining it, but it still doesn't explain how 'normal' people are able to perform magic. It does, however, harken to the old adage, "sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic."

Zatanna was first discovered by me in - yep - Injustice. :-) Her flame kiss power is pretty cool...
