    i always liked father cramer for any one who could dare try and get into deatpools head let alone some of the other members of the squad including my fave Amanda . not to mention trying to keep the spectre inline and not wind up with the spectre turning him into dust. is one cool character you and kim created for the book. plus also loved how the story line revealed babs was oracle. not to mention showed that even granny goodness would be wise to not tick off the wall.
