It was only a matter of time before I got to this one, right? One of the coolest aspects of comicdom has always been the fact that many of our heroes need spiffy, space-age vehicles to get around in, right? I mean, how else is the Fantastic Four going to get to Latvaria to battle Dr. Doom or the X-Men going to get to wherever the Brotherhood is causing trouble? They need transportation! Over the years there’s been a great amount of vehicles that have come along...and then...not so much. This here’s a list of the coolest of the cool, so don’t expect the Spider-Buggy or the Jokermobile or anything weird like that. Also, the Guardians’ Milano was JUST introduced in the comics, so that didn’t make the cut either! And as always, your favorite may not make the list! My apologies, but you know how hard it is to please EVERYONE! Feel free to air your opinion in the comments section! Read more...

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...

A lot can happen in two weeks. By that I mean, in a week off from broadcast our favorite CBS hero has been renewed for a second season causing a collective sigh across fandom and this week on the show the plot advances so fast with so much content it feels like five or six episodes…or part one of a season finale (which this very much is).

In the 5th direct to video installment of this series and the 9th overall major appearance of Lego Batman (if you include the movie, the games and the 2008 mini-movie) the people at WB and DC have finally found the perfect blend of animation elements for fan Nirvana. In this world where intelligent and entertaining media for children and light hearted humorous adult animation have become nearly mutually exclusive, Lego DC Superheroes has hit gold for the fourth time in a row.

In the first season of Supergirl we have seen some incredible things. We have been privy to extended moments on Krypton and at the destruction of Mars. We have learned as much as we have ever known about the House of El in a mainstream format. We have seen the birth of Red Tornado and the diabolical threat of Non. We have seen Bizarro Girl, Live Wire and the Death of Astra (in which when it began we had no idea how much we would care for her). Read more...

18 Minutes of moral morass… Whether you like DC Comics’ direction in their books, film or animation they seem to be all in. Which direction is that you ask? Why the continued darkening of their Universe and the transition to blurred lines in what defines a hero. With films like Man of Steel, the New 52 reboot of 2011 (and now Convergence) it seems the more flawed the hero, the better for DC and its parent company Warner Bros. On July 28th the latest installment of the DC Animated Universe will get an ElseWorlds (alternate Universe) treatment and the chance to inject bleak darkness into another version of this Universe was too great to pass up. Even for Bruce Timm. The revered and yet recently departed (creative differences) creator of Batman TAS has returned to the DCAU with this coming film. While TAS might be the greatest cartoon of all time, it is safe to say that despite towing the company line and touting this work, Gods and Monsters is not the traditional fare he respected so highly. But while this is an alternate world (for which I am so grateful) it is an opportunity to rationalize poor decisions, glorify the darkness and up the violence level another notch on the “get the gamer audience” belt. How do I know this when the film isn’t released? Read more...

SupermanVillainsWith The Man of Steel still racking up the cash at the box office, we can now look forward to that inevitable sequel! Superhero sequels are very important, because they truly solidify the franchise and with all that “boring origin stuff” out of the way, we can finally get a good more comic book feel and hit the ground running. And as seen in movies like Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2 and the upcoming Captain America: Winter Soldier, we can also concentrate on the villains a little more, and give them more attention. So, that begs the question...who should Henry Cavill’s Superman face next?! I have a few logical choices, a few more that would be just AWESOME but we probably will never see, and then a few that I hope we never get around to seeing!!! Ever!! Not needed whatsoever.

75-years-small75 years ago two young Jewish immigrants created a story about a dashing hero from another planet that inspired billons of people all over the world for generations, and still continues to do so. The cousins Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created Superman in 1938, and they probably didn’t know the impact the character would have, but now The Man of Steel and his cast of supporting characters and villains have become part of the fabric of not only America’s culture, but the world’s. None of this would be here if not for Superman. I likely wouldn’t be writing this column, and  interest in comic books may not even exist! Read more...
