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!"

Over 20 years ago, DC Comics and Marvel Comics did the unthinkable. The two companies teamed up to settle the ultimate debate, with the help of their fans. Who would win in a smackdown of epic proportions between their greatest heroes? Think of it as Wrestlemania, but involving your favorite superheroes! Read more...

Welcome to my 6th consecutive Bleedie Awards! My yearly column where I give totally fabricated awards to the best (in my opinion) in comics and comic themed TV, video games and movies! This year in many ways was an interesting one, with DC revamping their line of books yet again with Rebirth and Marvel once again going to Civil War! Also, the Star Wars comics once again rocked and ruled from a galaxy far away! Read more...

So a few weeks back I made a list of the Greatest Marvel Cartoons Of All Time, and it was so fun and popular I thought I would give it a shot for the other team, DC Comics. And let’s be honest, this is going to be the most difficult list to put together!! Read more...

I covered DC Comic's LEGENDS #1 last week. This week, I will be covering issue #2 of the series !! Legends #2 starts off with Gwyneth Tate, a newswoman who is reporting on the incineration of Macro Man .by Captain Marvel. G. Gordon Godfrey "happens" to be on the scene for an interview. Godfrey bemoans the "Rise of the Super Hero" who he claims will bring about society's downfall. "Today's high powered world is too sophisticated, too complicated, simply too dangerous for such a outdated notion as the Heroic Ideal!" Read more...

Happy BATMAN Day to all of my readers! International Batman Day (September 17th) began in 2014, to celebrate the character's 75th Anniversary! The even has grown much larger in the past two years. I thought it might therefore be fun to recount my favorite memories with the Caped Crusader! To begin with--the very first Batman comic that I ever had was Batman #281 "Murder Comes In Black Boxes!!"

So, I am an 80’s kid. And that decade had a lot of different things going on, right? He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, the collapse of the Berlin wall, Back To The Future, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, neon clothes, Hulk Hogan...just to name a few things. Something else happened. Specifically to music. Hip Hop became the most popular music genre on the entire planet. And one specific group was essential in enhancing the popularity of the genre. Run DMC, a trio from Hollis, Queens, New York consisting of Joseph “Run” Simmons, Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. My first exposure to this legendary group (and possibly Hip Hop in general), was the music video for Aerosmith’s Walk This Way, which featured Run DMC on the track. Immediately, when you saw these three guys in their all black clothes, signature fedora hats, gold chains and shell-toed ADIDAS sneakers (without the laces)...you automatically knew they were the coolest dudes around. There wasn’t a question about it. And right from the get-go you knew that these guys wanted to make Rap a powerhouse genre in music, side-by-side with Rock & Roll and Punk. And they achieved that. They weren’t just Kings of Rap...they were the Kings of Rock. And you HAD to respect that. “It’s like that, and that’s the way it is.” Read more...

Legacy in comics is important. Legacy in all epic fictional sagas is VERY important. Just look at the response of Star Wars: The Force Awakens compared to let’s say...the new Ghostbusters remake so far. Force Awakens was all about continuing the story we all grew up with, at the same time as adding an excellent cast of new and exciting 2nd generation characters that will keep the adventures in a galaxy far, far away going strong. Ghostbusters is a whole new reboot of a story that many feel is a cheap remake of a movie that still to this day holds up for many of us. If they were to make this movie with the all-female cast of new characters that are the daughters or protégées of the original Ghostbusters, well, I bet more fans would enjoy that. Read more...
