I was recently drawn into a thread on Facebook that asked if we thought that the Atom was/is a "B-Lister" character. My EXACT response to this--"I do NOT find the Atom, Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Zatanna, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Elongated Man, Aquaman or the Martian Manhunter to be ANYTHING but A-Listers!"

In 1986, DC Comics released a brand new number one issue for their premier Super Heroine: WONDER WOMAN! That is right -- November of 2016 is the 30th anniversary of the re-imagining of the Amazing Amazon . In Crisis On Infinite Earths # 12, Wonder Woman (thanks to being struck by the Anti Monitor's blast) DEVOLVED! The clock was reset on the character. Read more...

"Heroes get remembered, but legends never die!" -- Babe Ruth. "The EPIC Of The CENTURY -- STARTS RIGHT HERE! So screams the cover blurb on the cover of the first issue of DC's six issue mini series "Legends". The people tasked with producing the book had a daunting task before them. Legends was o be DC's follow up to the monumental Crisis On Infinite Earths comic that had made such an impact the previous year. The problem? How do you follow a series that featured thousands of characters (every character that existed in DC Comics stable made at least a brief appearance during the course of the issues)? Read more...

Great Hera! It is Wonder Woman's 75th Anniversary! The Amazing Amazon first appeared in All-Star Comics #8, the December 1941 issue. The character was created by William Moulton Marston, as well as both Marston's wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston and artist H.G. Peter. Both of the latter were not credited. The Marstons co-inhabitant Olive Byrne is credited as being the pattern for Wonder Woman's physical appearance. Marston patterned the character after the feminists of the day. One such example is that of Feminist Margaret Sanger. With the exception of a brief time in 1986, Wonder Woman's adventures have been continuing unabated for the entirety of the past 75 years!

Everyone has that one comic book--the one that turned them from a casual reader into a collector. Mine was Batman #311. Oh, I'd been reading comic books since 1974, but it was always just whatever caught my eye on the spinner rack. But, Batman #311 was different. "Dr. Phosphorus Is Back!!" The cover looked great, Batman shielding special guest star Batgirl from a burning "Skeleton Man!" I had to read this book! So, I paid my 40 cents and I couldn't wait to get home and read the book! I was not disappointed. Read more...

Looking back, it has been over a year and a half since I wrote the first review I ever did for ENR that focused on a Superman-centric piece, and I am sure some of you who visit this website on a regular basis remember that review (for those of you who do not remember, it was reviewing Superman: The Third Kryptonian). Odd case scenario, since that review, I have still been, for the most part, finding trouble looking for major Superman solo comic stories to actually catch my interest with all of 2015 seeming to be a downer year in the sense of the lack of new Superman-centric storylines to get me excited in exploring more of the new age of Superman comics, but I still managed to find the man of steel himself playing a supporting role in some DC storylines I enjoyed.

Day to Marvel Now there have been elevator successes and failures as well as a yo-yo industry Since I was little, when I first started reading magazines about comics and letters to the editor the industry has always towed the same line when changing things up or making giant moves like a reboot or a renumbering. It seems that the entire point of comics is to, “give new readers a jumping on point while still delivering the same wonderful characters the longtime fans have come to love.” Read more...

This week was a joy.  This week has been the best so far this year in the world of episodic TV superheroes and while seeing the Black Mercy of Mongul on Supergirl whets the appetite this week’s episode of The Flash is the main course feast of Easter eggs and character reveals. Read more...
