Let's sing two Soprano Kristine Opolais got to bed at 5 a.m. Saturday after performing her first Madama Butterfly for the Metropolitan Opera. Just 21/2 hours later, she was awakened by Met general manager Peter Gelb : Could she take over a simulcast performance of Puccini's La Boheme that afternoon? Opolais said no - but five minutes later she changed her mind, and on Saturday, she became the first singer in the Met's 131-year history to make two major-role debuts within a day. She was seen by 4,000 people live and 200,000-plus viewers around the world.

A relaunch of the Justice League of America doesn't happen every day. Re-energizing a title that had been published almost continuously for more thanfour decades, featuring the world's most popular and recognizable characters - Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Green Lantern - is a daunting task. Fortunately for DC Comics, they found best-selling novelist Brad Meltzer. Meltzer (who will do a signing for his latest novel, "The Book of Fate," Sept. 21 at Chester County Book Co. in West Chester)

Comics Guy often finds comics based on genres other than superheroes to be disappointing. Why? Because a lot of the time they are attempts to do stories, like crime dramas, that are done repeatedly on TV and in movies - and often done better. Usually, such projects are attempts to have comics taken seriously in a medium dominated by superhero genre fare - a genre that Comics Guy thinks comics do better than anyone else. So when Comics Guy kept hearing how great Ed Brubaker's "Criminal" was, my gut reaction was, "Great.

AS INDEPENDENCE Month comes to a close - and the controversy over "the American Way" being deleted from "Superman Returns" still simmers - it is worth asking whether there are any patriotic heroes left in comics. Of course there is the Man of Steel, although patriotism has been downplayed lately. There is also Captain America, but his status as a symbol of America has not really been explored in his book recently (that's a subject for another column). But a book exploring the complexities and realities of the American dream is "Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters.

I WENT TO SEE "Thor" with friends at the movies. It is a must-see for any self-respecting comic-book fan from the Lee-Kirby era of Marvel Comics. We were a privileged lot, no doubt about it. My friend John and I would never have dreamed that the super-hero comics that we voraciously read in our youth would ever have received such fabulous treatment. It was beyond the pale. But here we are. And there you have them - Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor and (soon!) Captain America.

AS HOLLYWOOD expands the boundaries of its "summer" season, the spring box office heats up a little earlier each year. This year, Captain America and various X-Men arrive before the solstice and long before school is out, and blockbusters like "Godzilla" turn up on the schedule. There are some interesting imports and independents, as well. Here are a few to watch for: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," April 4. Marvel-ous sequel has the title character (Chris Evans) teaming with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)

One shudders to think how badly comic-book stories are often mangled before they make it to the tube. Luckily, Marvel's Agent Carter , which premieres with a double episode at 8 p.m. Tuesday on ABC, is a most worthy addition to the Marvel universe. While the network's other comic book adventure, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. , is set very much in a high-tech present, Agent Carter takes us back to a richly detailed and wonderfully atmospheric 1940s, a world introduced to us on the big screen by the Captain America franchise.

Evans loves romance Captain America star Chris Evans , who has been described as "easy on the eyes" by at least one film expert, has a soft spot for romantic fare. "I'm such a sap," Evans, 34, tells USA Today. Evans doesn't see himself doing action pics for the rest of his career. "I'm out there throwing that shield and knocking people out at least a few times every couple of years, so when I have some down-time, that's not exactly what I'm looking to keep doing," says the Avengers: Age of Ultron star.
