Review of chapter "The Death of the...." from Genericrandom
I started reading this a long, long time ago now, and lost track of it for... actually, just after chapter two or maybe three, I think. Now I've come back and read it all in one shot, and it was grand. You took comic book awesome and made it reflection of reality real, heavy, dark, beautiful and wonderful. This was an incredible story. It was a little short, and it would have been nice to 'get into' it a bit more, but overall, this is one of the best stories I've read in a long while, if only for the fact that it asks the question "Why are they letting these maniacs out again and again to kill. The JLA and assorted heroes hands them over, but they never get sentenced to death? WTF?" that many people have been asking about comic books for quite a while now. Now I realize some of them can't be killed, or just won't die... and I never did read Crisis, but anyway overall? Yeah. Good stuff. Great, in fact.

Review of chapter "Making a List, Checking it twice" from PsychoWing
I'm still reading through this (and loving it), but I just thought I'd point out that in this chapter (9) you have Sally as being a slayer when in a previous chapter (5) she wasn't - Sara is (7). Anyway, I'm going to finish reading the story.

Review of chapter "Blood" from SledgeHammer
Hell yeah - The Speech was overdue - in fact, long overdue. Alfred should have given it to Batman after dealing with the Joker the *second* time, as the Kents should have after the second confrontation between Superman and Lex (or even the *first* confrontation with Braniac). and before you wonder what Alfred Pennyworth and Johnathan Kent would know about that sort of thing, wake up - both fought in World War I. While WW I was not as messy as WW II, war *period* is a messy business, and even Big Mistake Number One was not as clean as people thought, for all the lack of the powerful tanks and bombs actually used in Big Mistake Number Two. Iin fact, in DC Universe Prime, neither has gotten the Speech *yet*. (That I don't get *at all*.)

Review of chapter "The Death of the...." from CageFire
This is a really interesting story. The whole kill the supervillians already thing isn't exactly new, and frankly I don't think it's truly about morals, it's simply if every superhero killed every madman out there who went too far, then they'd have to keep inventing more and more supervillians instead of being able to reuse them over and over. I mean it's not just the superheroes either. I mean with all the crap that the joker has done, all the people he's killed, why has a police sniper never put a round through his head? Or for that matter, why hasn't a cop ever put a bullet in him before when he was arrested? Some of them might say "Damn my career, I don't care if I go to jail, that madman has to die!" It's all simply for the matter of if all the worst villians are dead, the only ones left will be the small fries, and they're not as interesting. I mean they can claim it's all a moral stance, which part of it might be, but it's also just good business.

Review of chapter "The Death of the...." from trongod
I was happy to see that your Muse is bugging you into writing a sequel to this, and that Faith was pushing her way into the story - 'course, I immediately put in a vote for a faith and dawn team up to rescue their Boytoy Studmuffin from all those hussies in the DC 'verse, but hey! you have to admit the man deserves the Dark Slayer and The Grown Up And No Longer Jail Bait Key!! Your messages said that Xander is 23-25 in your Muse's mind, so that puts Faith at 21-23, Dawn at 19-21 (I think...)
Especially after the things he's gone through so far just in this story... Although I wouldn't mind your Muse letting Lauren save the newspapers and the award Gordon and the rest of the honest Gotham cops gave to Xander for his putting down two rabid monsters... Or he dance where the girls ALL insist on multiple dances with Xander as Diana, Barbara, Zatanna, and Pat laugh between getting their own dances with him, teasing him in SO many ways... And Cassie alternately defended him and teasing him as well as she laughs, to Xander's great satisfaction...
Hmm, maybe have Kara and Galatea show up to see for themselves the 'mortal' that has had such an inordinate effect upon their world; not sure what other spandex femme fatales are around other than Black Canary (too old and with G.A.), Huntress ( also occupied)etc.

Review of chapter "The Death of the...." from malchance
Please, please, please, please, please....MORE!! *gets down on hands and knees offering cookies and bribes*
I just read this story straight through and I absolutely loved it. It is one of my absolute favorites. I was completely drawn in and almost forgot that I was reading a story. I especially loved your strong, confident, and secure Xander. I would love reading more stories in this 'verse. It has so much potential and there are no limits to where you can go with it in the future. Can't wait to read more of your stories.
Comments from author:
I wish I could figure out where to go... every time I start it is just a rehash of the reality Xander shoved down their throats.. might have to go back and show what is happening in his old world.. but at the same time, there are people in the JLA very UNHAPPY with the reality Batman and Superman have faced... so... ~sighs~ my muse hates me of late.

Review of chapter "Enter JLA" from deamon
I love this story and would love to see a sequel. Maybe about what happens in his home dimension after he left or if they find him or give him some romance or something. (I would love to see him with galatea or diana's sister (cant remember her name).

Review of chapter "Hard Truths" from Theory
Evidently Xander hasnt read kingdom come and what happens when the heroes take a more hardline with villains, in the end no matter how you justify it, killing is wrong and it only leads to more killing. I love the story but the attitude seems wrong to me.... not to mention the heroes would never be able to operate if the killed people, they would be hunted down as vigilantes and murderers.

Review of chapter "The Death of the...." from Ancalador
A very enjoyable story. While I'm curious to see how things would have changed long term I understand that that was a reasonable place to end the story.
Keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "The Death of the...." from mountainelements
This is an interesting read. I doubt that Willow and Buffy would fall so far as to tell a bunch of minors to sleep with Xander, but I understand that you wanted to give Xander a reason to leave. I like how Xander makes the superheros think about how many people die because they don't kill ANY of the supervillians.
Question: Why are so many of the Slayers staying at the school when Xander wanted to limit it only to the people who really needed it as there are space issues? Are so many of them orphans? You mentioned reasons for some of them, but I didn't get why the tomboys are boarding there.
I like how Xander kills the Joker and then starts planning a dance to divert any crushes. Here's hoping that you write a sequel. :)
