Dragon Ball: Vegeta's Redemption Arc Is One of Anime's Best
When he made his first appearance in Dragon Ball Z, Vegeta was a Saiyan underling in the Frieza Force, conquering planets and selling them to the highest bidder under orders from the group's titular tyrant. As an elite Saiyan Prince, there was nothing more humiliating to Vegeta than working for Frieza, the man who murdered his father and ruled over his race with an iron fist. When Vegeta finally arrived on Earth with his partner Nappa, they did major damage to the planet, resulting in the deaths of Yamcha, Chiaotzu, Tien and Piccolo. The villain even proved just how ruthless he was when he vaporized Nappa after his teammate lost to Goku.
However, since those early days, Vegeta has grown a ton as a character, giving him one of the best redemption arcs in all of anime.
The next time Vegeta appeared was on Planet Namek, where he killed innocent Namekians and Frieza's soldiers in pursuit of the world's Dragon Balls, with which he wanted to attain immortality. Vegeta was still inherently evil at this point, driven by an overwhelmingly strong desire to revenge the destruction of his homeworld and gain liberation from Frieza. However, this saga showed a more complex side of the proud Saiyan warrior -- a sign that Vegeta had the capacity for change -- when Frieza mortally wounded him.
In a teary-eyed emotional confession to Goku, Vegeta revealed it was Frieza who molded him into the ruthless and heartless warrior that he had become. Vegeta expressed sadness he'd been harboring heavily for his entire life, even going so far as to plead with Goku to not only avenge their eradicated race but also stop Frieza from creating more hateful and vengeful subordinates. This scene symbolized a change in Vegeta's character moving forward, pushing him more into the anti-hero role, as he cared more about his own strength but no longer wished to destroy the Earth or pursue the Dragon Balls for immortality. It was also the beginning of his maddening obsession with surpassing Goku.
After being wished back to life and to Earth by the Namekian Dragon Balls, Vegeta began his new life on Earth, moving in with Bulma at the Capsule Corporation and eventually conceiving Trunks. At first, Vegeta didn't recognize or entertain the idea of a relationship with Bulma, as his only goal was attaining absolute strength. He left Earth and went on a treacherous journey through the cosmos to find Goku and do battle with his eternal rival. While the Saiyan Prince did not locate Goku, he found something much more valuable than an exchange of fists: Vegeta became a Super Saiyan himself.
The Uncollected Spider-Man/Black Cat/Doctor Octopus Epic Storyline. In their feature featuring notable comics not collected into trades, CSBG spotlights an epic Spider-Man/Black Cat/Doctor Octopus storyline.
This feature is called "Almost Hidden." Even with this large amount of comic books that have been collected in trade paperbacks, there are still a number of great comic books that have never been reprinted in print (I'd say roughly 60% of them are DC Comics from the 1980s through the mid-1990s). So in this feature I spotlight different cool comic books that are only available as back issues (or digitally). Of course, the way things go, something I spotlight today might be collected tomorrow, but for right this moment, these comics have not been collected!
Before she joined the Birds of Prey, Renee Montoya went through a radical transformation that turned her into one of DC's most compelling heroes. standards of the 80-year-old DC Universe, Renee Montoya is still relatively young compared to most Batman characters. In 28 years since her creation, she has been put through the emotional wringer and has evolved into a very different character from the one she was when she originally debuted. But even if Birds of Prey didn't give Montoya a chance to suit up as her heroic alter ego, the Question, she's still evolved more than most supporting characters and has one of the most coherent arcs in the DC Universe.
Originally, Montoya was created for Batman: The Animated Series, where she appeared as a background character for several episodes before getting speaking lines in the Season 1 episode “P.O.V.” As such, Bruce Timm, Paul Dini and Mitch Brian are considered her creators, even though she didn't actually debut in the series. Before she jumped into the world of that fan-favorite Batman cartoon, she was preemptively introduced in comics in Batman #475, by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle.
Montoya was a uniformed Gotham City Police Department officer who was trusted by Commissioner Gordon. While that was her general status for several years, she began evolving into a different, more complex character under the pen of writer Greg Rucka. Starting with Rucka and Jeason Pearson's Batman Chronicles #16 in 1999 and continuing on through the "No Man’s Land" crossover, Montoya was given a complicated relationship with Harvey Dent and his lesser half, Two-Face. As Greg Rucka himself said in an interview, “If everyone in the DC universe has a special ability or superpower, then Renee’s ability was that she could get both Harvey and Two-Face to listen to her.
Might Deathstroke still be alive in Titans season 3, and how could he potentially make a comeback? Deathstroke played the role of arch antagonist throughout the second season of Titans, and extended flashback episodes revealed the true extent of his grudge against the superhero group. While working as a mercenary, Deathstroke accidentally killed Aqualad, a member of the original Titans team. Devastated by their loss, the remaining heroes resolved to get revenge, and targeted Slade Wilson's son, Jericho, before eventually coming clean to the youngster, who they had since grown fond of. As the feud between the Titans and Deathstroke intensified, Jericho, or his body at least, was caught in the crossfire. When the Titans publicly announced their return at the beginning of season 2, Wilson came out of hiding to put them down.
This ends badly for Deathstroke when both of his children align with the Titans. From inside his father's consciousness, Jericho communicates with Dick Grayson, and the villain is eventually defeated by his daughter, Rose, who stabs him through the torso and absorbs Jericho into her own body. Grayson, now going under the mantle of Nightwing, declares Wilson dead. Deathstroke was a highly-praised addition to the Titans roster and was comfortably the most interesting, formidable foe in the entire series, attracting favorable comparisons to the Arrowverse's interpretation of the same character. As such, it's strange that Titans would definitively kill off a figure that courted such a positive response, especially compared to season 1's Trigon.
Fortunately, Slade's death isn't quite as definitive as it seemed. After taking a sword through his body and being pronounced deceased by Dick, Slade is left on the ground which, for a character with an accelerated healing factor, isn't exactly a conclusive ending. Slade's survival largely hinges on how good his regeneration ability truly is. When the villain first reemerges in Titans season 2, it's clear that his powers are stuttering, and he obviously never recovers the loss of his right eye, but Rose demonstrates the potential of her father's powers when she stabs a hole through her hand and watches it heal. It's impossible to rule out Deathstroke's artificial healing patching up the new gap in his chest, at least enough for him to survive, although the ability might need kick-starting by a rich and powerful scientist with an equally big score to settle with the Titans... Lex Luthor perhaps?

A lot has changed for Gal Gadot‘s Diana Prince since the year 1971. As shown in the first Wonder Woman movie, the Amazon warrior left her home of Themyscira, waged war against the God of War himself during World War I, (seemingly) lost the love of her life in an aircraft explosion, and found out she’s part deity herself. Now, in the upcoming sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, a lot more changes are coming, including one major visual transformation.
Diana trades her traditional red-white-and-blue battle gear for something with a bit more gleam: golden armor that comes with a helmet in the likeness of the eagle that emblazons her belt and gigantic metallic wings that allow her to pierce the sky. Those familiar with DC comic book lore know this as the character’s Golden Eagle Armor and it’s making its live-action debut in theaters with the movie this June 5.
Thy Kingdom Come
Diana first suited up as her own specialized winged victory in the third issue of Elseworlds: Kingdom Come, a four-issue series published from Alex Ross and Mark Waid in 1996. The comic book event took place in a not-so-distant future when Superman put himself out of retirement in light of a tragedy. That’s when a faction of newer, younger metahumans rise up, bringing with them a violent, volatile approach to heroism that exists in stark opposition to the more traditional views of the Justice League. Their compromised, reckless morals blur the line between hero and villain, and end up hurting innocents in the process. When a catastrophic event kills millions of Americans, Superman returns to reform the League and wage war against the brash, out-of-control new protectors of earth.
