And I'm with Raisor- the Superman OYL storyline is really good so far.
I think the Wizard Shazam took the scarab from Kord in Countdown to Crisis, but I was under the impression that Kord had it for some time before that, or at least that's the way it was written.
I haven't been reading the Superman OYL series but I do have the first couple issues of the Batman OYL Face the Face storyline. Apparently Dectective 818 sold out around here so I'm missing Part 3 for the time being, but 1, 2, and 4 have been real solid. A return to a kinder, gentler Batman, or at the very least one who isn't a huge jerk. He's still Batman, to the point and all, but not the paranoid, jackass Batman that had been around for awhile. I like Robinson's writing and the art is good so I'm a little hestitant about the changeover to Dini coming up, but I'm optimistic because I like the way Batman was portrayed in the DC Animated Universe and Dini had significant input with that.
