1. Just recently, in the pages of Captain America, the city of Philadelphia was bombed by what looks to be the return of Bucky!!

2. A vigilante is cutting a path through the Gotham underworld in recent Batman stories. Named the Red Hood, he is causing a problem for Batman AND the other criminales in town, until Batman comes face to face with him, and learns that it is Jason Todd!

3.
