    Prince Jason getting on-the-job training? He's shadowing Diana on missions, in civilian clothes - no armor? No weapons? This is the son of an Amazon and the protégé of the Argonauts?

    I just don't know what to make of that. Stunned...

    Well he’s not a hero. Didn’t have time to get any armor I’m assuming. I think the gods will give him something in April.

    I'm not complaining about Lupacchino; I quite like her art. We were to have her rotating with Pagyuan, though, right? He's been siphoned elsewhere, I guess?

    Nothing in the preview I'm mad at; Jason's supposed to be a work in progress, with no clear sense that at the end of his time with Diana that he'll be donning tights.

    So Jason must have a tremendous healing factor in order to recover from having his throat slashed by the Silver Swan. i think it's cool that Vanessa can use her blood to manipulate machines. That's a new ability for the character. I wonder how Steve and Co. are going to survive their battle with the Female Furies?

    The art (cover and interior) is pretty nice.

    I'm not on-board with the Female Furies being "challenged" by regular human soldiers. Ideally, they should be a challenge for the likes of Wonder Woman and Superman to battle.

    He grew up, training with archaic weapons. You'd think he had a few lying around.

    Agreed. Realistically the Oddfellows would be dead in seconds.

    As far as her powers go this is great update of Silver Swan, she's a murderous force to be reckoned with. She's already beating Mayfly, Aegeus and Angle Man in the running for best revamped villains.

    When and where was Angle Man revamped in Rebirth?

    It wasn't quite Rebirth yet, but he was Vandal Savage's son in Superman/Wonder Woman just before it.

    Sorry for leaving an 'a' out of my first post.

    I guess I like the idea of Jason, and that there should always have been a Jason...more than I'm actually digging Jason, right now? F'that makes any sense?

    So far, in spite of his cool lady's man skills and fun-loving, Human Torchy personality, ..Prince Jason fails my most important test - the 'Would I have wanted to be Jason, when I was a kid?' test. The answer is...well...no. So far, it's a 'no'.

    Mister Febreeze here is basically a male wind nymph, with pretty, windy sky powers. The best he can ever hope to be is a male Storm...a Wonder Storm! Dear Lord in Heaven, don't - DON'T - let that be his codename - not, with Mister Chicago and Breaking Wind still available! No-ooo!

    Maybe, the magic joogamabob he gets in April changes him, somehow. It's not looking great, right now.

    I get it. It certainly adds a different dynamic to the usual all-woman island.

    I just think it would have been better if Jason had been raised on the island with Diana, and the Amazons figuring out how to raise a boy. But Flashpoint and New52 Amazons kind of ruined the chances for that.

    Who knows, maybe Doomsday Clock will fix all of that to make Flashpoint and New52 (barring a bare few exceptions) a non-factor.
