Ok. So I read the first issue of King's Bat/Cat (out tomorrow). It's all over the place. I won't say that I miss him on regular series right now.

I'm torn. Part of me says, "Ohhhh, new and shiny! Nice!" Another part of me says, "What the Fork!? That's not Spider-Man!"

The new Black Widow run is interesting. Hawkeye, Winter Soldier, and Yelena Bulova are part of the story. They're only at issue 4 so it isn't too late to jump in.

I'm curious about the new DC Future State stuff. I hear that the new Wonder Woman is done well. This week she's sharing a book with Superman. Is there word if she'll have her own book again? I don't care for Superman.

She's getting a new TV show on the CW.

Speaking of Future State, John Ridley is getting a digital-first books to serve as a prequel to his Next Batman story, which will look further into the issues with the Fox family and Tim's turn to pick up the mantle of Batman.

I might give the new Superman run a shot after Future State. Haven't read it since Bendis forked it all up after the great job Tomasi and Jurgens did.

(But Batman beats Superman every time.)

This will be a weird one
I gave a snatch of a memory from a long ago comic
I think it was avengers based but not sure
Essentially a female character meets a guy and they sleep together and she gets pregnant
The pregnancy/birth go very quickly and the resulting baby grows very rapidly and is a full grown man in a week or so (and I’m pretty sure he grows into the man who impregnated the woman)

does this sound familiar at all?
Any ideas or guesses?

I still believe that might be the most legitimately insane story arc in Avengers history. Mostly because of how most of the other Avengers act like there's nothing weird about this at all and are like acting like proud aunts and uncles waiting for the arrival of Carol's baby. Then Carol has a meltdown about the fact no one seems concerned about her or how she feels about any of this and that they're all just acting celebratory about the fact she was raped and impregnated, without actually using those words of course.

so that storyline obviously made an impact and stayed with me through the years (to be triggered by Wanda speculation)
but the funny thing is i remember exactly zero of the Red Ronan storyline
