Injustice: Gods Among Us was only just the beginning. NetherRealm, the same video game studio that develops the Mortal Kombat series has yet another blockbuster Fighter franchise on their hands. Injustice delves into an alternate DC Universe where Earth’s greatest hero, Superman, becomes the type of tyrannical villain he was once sworn to oppose after he executes The Joker. The snowball effect of that event creates a world where our heroes and villains are drastically changed and the status quo of the DC Universe is flipped upside down. The first game’s story mode had the heroes of a more familiar Earth come to help Batman’s rebels battle Superman’s regime, but this new installment shows us the aftermath of that story. A new threat emerges as Brainiac (who is responsible for the destruction of Krypton in this reality) attacks Earth’s cities and enlists the world’s vilest menaces to aide him. Read more...

Welcome back to the weekly episodic breakdown of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on ENR. Last week the entire perspective on this show changed and the DCTVU is never going to look the same. This week the team travels to 1987, visits their younger selves and learns in detail about the tides of change and how it applies to our time travel heroes…er legends. Read more...

With episode 4 of Legends of Tomorrow the stride has finally been hit Though for this viewer it was more a sudden understanding of what the CW was trying to accomplish that chaged my perspective of the show dramatically. If you have read my reviews of the first three episodes you know I have been both critical and praising of the show but this episode changes everything. And by changes I mean the name of the game.

To make a show primarily focused on time travel is a difficult thing when you rely on the headiness of the plot to anchor the viewer rather than the emotional bonds of less intricately plotted shows. One of the easiest ways to do this however involves making the time periods relevant and interesting enough to tell more self-contained stories within the larger. But with Legends, as we have discussed, there is a serious piece missing from the series, even more than last season’s freshman run. You see, the best parts of the CW superhero lineup on the other nights of the week is the deep thematic approach that is not taken here and those themes tend to make us emotionally connected to them.

Back when I was young and sifting through my older brother’s comic collection, I used to stumble upon this quirky book called Suicide Squad. I’m not even sure I knew what “suicide” even meant at the time, but none of the characters at the time seemed very appealing to me. You had one guy with an all silver mask and a red eye, a guy that dressed like a cast member from Cats, a witch in every sense of the word...pointy hat and all, a weird guy dressed as a flight attendant and then, one character that I immediately recognized: THE PENGUIN! Of course now I know those other characters as Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Captain Boomerang and Enchantress. Read more...

Yesterday we discussed the first episode in the second annual Flash/Arrow crossover event. We touched on the launching of a new show Legends of Tomorrow featuring the characters Vandal Savage, Hawkgirl and Hawkman – who debuted in the crossover episode named Legends of Today. That episode was a superhero team-up throw down show of historical proportions and we left a lot of the deeper explorations of theme and device on the side to celebrate this great event. Read more...

Welcome back to the weekly Arrow review, as we walk through the season together episode by episode. In the sixth episode of this – the fourth season – it seems Arrow has finally caught up to itself. What I mean by this is that after three seasons (two of which we weren’t sure if we were watching Batman or Green Arrow) and six episodes of a fourth the loose ends have wrapped, the characterization is complete and the team is defined and each member has a role and a function that is fully understood.
