What DC Rebirth Secrets Are In Your Comics This Week? Justice League Of America…

Justice League Of America #7 promised us that it would be "all capped off with a moment fans have been waiting for since DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH!"

I'm not sure I found that in the issue in question. Did you? Here are some theories…


Unless that was Professor Palmer trying to make himself known?


Maybe it depends upon who the "she " that Terrorsmith is referring to is. And hey, you get a mention of Ice being in the Justice League International and a certain Thaddeus Sivana, Captain Marvel's Big Bad since Whiz Comics #2, and the inspiration behind Marvelman's Dr Garguaza.


But for those looking for Professor Palmer relevance, you may have to wait until August.

Although JLA writer Steve Orlando did appear to place one Watchmen reference in Nightwing #6 last year with Tim Seeley, Roge Antonio and Chris Sotomayor that I don't think was picked up on at the time. Well, better late than never…


We'll keep watching.

Justice League of America #7 by Steve Orlando and Jamal Campbell is published today.
