I am a grumpy systems programmer who has been forced to use high-level languages by the Evil Forces of Capitalism. I live in Stockholm, where the definition of great weather is: not currently -25 C. I enjoy innebandy, glög, and solglasögon.

Very cool! That X-Men one is getting ordered for his next birthday!

"Usagi Yojimbo" is a fantastic series of books! I actually attended a talk by Stan Sakai back in university--he's a lovely man.

I think that Marvel Adventures looks pretty good, from a cursory review on Amazon. Spiderman is not as cool as Batman or the X-Men, but he'll do in a pinch. ;)

He's a big fan of Dora the Explorer and Diego the Animal Rescuer. That's funny, now every time I look at Diego, I'm going to see the young Latino Bruce Wayne. ;)

WRT the hitting: that's a good point. He already watches a few cartoons with some violence (e.g. Batman: TBatB and Ben 10), but he tends to copy the acrobatics and gadget manipulation more than the punching. He does know that hitting other people is not OK, so I'm not worried about that aspect of comics.

I'll check out the Superhero Squad, that sounds ideal. Do you have any idea what DC's version is called? (I'm more of a Marvel guy myself, but I make an exception for Batman and certain Superman books, and my son already likes Batman.)

Javid, he can't read by himself yet, as he just knows a few letters. He does "read" to himself or to his stuffed animals sometimes, though. He takes a book that he knows very well (one of the Doctor Seuss or Berenstain Bears ones) and retells the story whilst flipping the pages.
