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...

We are fast approaching the climax of the 2015-2016 seasons of the DC Television Universe with only a few episodes of Gotham, Arrow, Lucifer, The Flash, iZombie, Legends of Tomorrow and only one left of the new smash Supergirl. While everyone in fandom has favorite characters from DC Comics, each wing of the DCTVU has a unique feel and a distinct voice. Since being your weekly episodic guide through three shows this season (Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash) I thought it would be fun to try once again to play armchair executive and make some perfect fits for each.

Dedicated to the memory of Mike Ramirez Greetings DAMMnation, eXPress Legions and the mighty eXpertComics.com faithful, welcome back to the column that pits two comics against each other in a metaphorical battle royal – Title Fight! As usual we will have the latest and greatest but this week I am trying something different. Instead of reviewing two books that I have never read or reviewed I’m going to put two books from titles I find excellent already and make the newest issues duke it out. Tale of the Tape damm 10Pandora and Disney Kingdoms: Seekers of the Weird are phenomenal titles. Pandora is an ongoing and Seekers is a limited series of 5 issues. Both are far different from their parent genre of superhero and horror respectively and one is from DC one is from Marvel. Pandora is a New 52 original character who was in each of the first issues of the new universe and whose past and identity as a being are till shrouded in mystery but recent events in Forever Evil (DC’s massive crossover in its final throes) have started to unravel them. Currently, Pandora is engaged in a battle to free Zatanna and the rest of the Justice League Dark from Felix Faust. She is atoning for her first sin – opening Pandora ’s Box in the Greek legend. Yep, THAT Pandora.   Read more...

d 13Welcome ENR Legions. It is my pleasure to be here. Thank you for reading. Thanks to Brett DaSilva who recommended Phantom Stranger to me. It has been clear that over the last four years I have been extremely critical of DC Comics and Warner Brothers especially. I have stated time and again I dislike the way the current “big guns” in their comic and cinematic universes are characterized. However I have always approached with an open mind (OK Man of Steel shut THAT door…but in the comics) and I have shined just as glorious of praise on titles like Batgirl, The Beyond  line of books, Blue Beetle, Superman Unchained, Batman and Superman and Adventures of Superman as warranted. But still it remained that in most cases heroes were not acting like heroes but like spoiled children or jaded murderers. But I read villains month and found as far as the villains go, the New 52 has some of the best. Rebooted or not. I loved it and said so right on these pages. That being said, I love events. I love crossovers and chromium covers, I love big sweeping arcs in multiple titles and most of all I love tie-ins. But I have been burned a lot lately. From AvX to Death in the Family to Children of the Atom the event has sucked a lot recently (although Court of Owls was fun).   Read more...

admin-ajax.phpVillains Month has presented us with quite a rounded view of most of DC’s evil-doers. For the most part, this is a reflection of modern storytelling. It’s not enough now for the bad guys to just be ‘evil’ – they have to believe in their cause and justify that what they’re doing is for the greater good. There is no black and white anymore – just many, many shades of grey. Or are there? While employing the idea that every villain is a hero in their own eyes, what then is the true nature of evil? Where does it come from? What drives it? Are some people born without a conscience or is it the things that they experience that truly define them? All these questions have been examined by the writers at DC. While most of these villains have proven that the path to ruin is paved with good intentions, there are some who you really could have called it from the start. This week’s pick of Villains month looks at two monsters that appear very different on the outside but actually have more in common than first thought. The Creeper and General Zod. One is a demon, motivated by an insane desire to spread chaos while the other is the very definition of a megalomaniac. What links the two is a brave move by DC – these creatures are evil to the core. In a great finale to my review of Villains Month, I review two villains that are the epitome of the word: monster.

marvel-studios-avengersBG-logo-imgThis week is once again bringing  the Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie into focus. A few weeks ago MJ's part was cut out of ASM2, causing rumors to swirl like a tornado in the alley. This week Andrew Garfield is the one starting the talk. Check out the column from EW. While you are here what does anyone think of Electro facing off against Spider-Man in this picture from EW? It's not the Electro we knew as kids, but it definitely looks like the one from Marvel Ultimates. Love it or hate it? Let us know!   Read more...
