The Hill writes that Brown has won a meal with Lynda Carter, the star of the 1970s television series. Carter was auctioned off to Brown for $1,000 at the recent D.C.'s Funniest Celebrity charity event, with proceeds going to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. (Brown, it should be noted, is married to former TV reporter Gail Huff and has two daughters.)
Brown's affinity for Wonder Woman may be one of the few items he and his opponent in the 2012 Senate race have in common. A November New York Times Magazine profile had constituents comparing Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren to the superhero.
Warren seems to like that comparison herself. During an October debate, she was asked what superhero she would be. »

Presenting our weekly round-up of all the biggest news stories from the world of movie superheroes…
We’ve known about it for what seems like an eternity now, but Warner Bros. have finally confirmed that the six-minute prologue from The Dark Knight Rises will be attached to certain IMAX screenings of the upcoming Tom Cruise action sequel, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which hits North America on December 16th and arrives in the UK five days later. “Our experience on The Dark Knight shooting and projecting IMAX 15 perf 65mm/70mm film was inspiring. The immersive quality of the image goes beyond any other filmmaking tool available, and in revisiting Gotham, we were determined to shoot even more of the movie in this unique format,” said director Christopher Nolan as part of the official announcement. “Giving the fans an early look at an IMAX sequence is a great way to draw attention »

Presenting our weekly round-up of the big news stories from the world of movie superheroes…
After a month of dominating the superhero headlines, The Dark Knight Rises takes a bit of a back seat this week, allowing Marvel Studios to take the spotlight with the release of two new character banners depicting all the main players from Joss Whedon’s epic superhero team-up, The Avengers. As you can see to your right, Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) are all present and accounted for. You can check out high resolution versions of the two banners over at YahooMovies, who also caught up with Whedon for a detailed interview that covers pretty much every aspect of the film (well, except the villains).

Erica Durance (Smallville) has been cast as Wonder Woman! Okay, wait. That was entirely misleading. I should backtrack and explain this better. NBC’s Harry’s Law (which recently received a full Season 2 order) has hired Erica Durance to guest star as someone who just thinks she is the Amazonian Princess turned superhero. Is that clear now?
TVLine reported the casting, explaining Durance’s character takes on the Wonder Woman persona to combat those who commit domestic abuse. The clearly mentally unhinged woman is likely (and this is just me inferring) a victim of abuse herself, hence her strong reaction toward it. Becoming Wonder Woman would likely allow her to feel she can stand up to abusers, when she herself could not. It’s actually a really fascinating character, or would be if it’s taken in that direction. She could just be a regular »

Now that the Twilight film franchise is drawing to a close (with $1.8 billion in receipts and counting, not including the projected $125 million opening predicted for this weekend's Breaking Dawn - Part 1), series screenwriter and Dexter veteran Melissa Rosenberg has turned her attention to a sizable slate of television projects. Talking with Movieline today, Rosenberg delved into the Sopranosesque qualities of her newly announced female-led crime drama Penoza and discussed the challenges of bringing a Jessica Jones superheroine series into a post-Birds of Prey/Wonder Woman world. »
Three months ago, DC Comics erupted as the center of attention in the comic book world with the launch of its 52-title reboot.
Offering a fresh start designed to entice both new and longtime readers, the publisher boldly hit the reset button on over 75 years of continuity.
Promising to maintain the core essence of the major characters while cleaning up past attempts to re-align its universal history, DC's risky endeavor to recapture the reader has so far been met with financial success.
But what about the books themselves? Did the publishing giant make good on its word to deliver a starting point for an untapped fan base? Will seasoned readers get content making it worth sitting through 52 origin stories? Let's find out.
First on the shelves was the flagship franchise Justice League. Set a bit before the other fifty titles - Action Comics is the other book out of the main timeline, »

Like a good neighbor, the Dunphy Pritchitt crew is there! In "After the Fire," the family pitched in to help out a neighbor who lost all of their belongings in a fire.
With Wonder Woman (Claire) at the helm, the family collected all of the essentials, which Gloria felt included a toy... how do you pronounce that again? When Luke and Manny took the helicopter for a joy ride, Luke ironically offered up one of his gems of knowledge. "Life can change in a second. You gotta grab what you can, when you can."
But before we got to the point where everyone realized their gratitude and discussed what sentimental items they would save in a fire, we were treated to a lot of hijinx.
I have to agree with Jay, Cam's farm stories are getting a bit repetitive. That said, you all know how much I adore Cam and »

NBC has just ordered a new pilot for The Munsters, a reboot of the 1960s sitcom starring Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo. The new series will be developed by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller. NBC had previously turned down the series, but Fuller’s new vision for the series is expected to be a darker,edgier one-hour drama. Unfortunately, NBC has only had a mediocre track record with reboots. The Bionic Woman series failed to achieve any success beyond its first season and last year’s Wonder Woman pilot failed following Internet fallout over the costume. Most recently, it was announced that Prime Suspect, based off of the BBC series starring Helen Mirren, would close production at the end of November. The series was left off of NBC’s 2012 mid-season schedule. The new Munsters series will revolve around the origins of Herman and Lily Munster. The original series was »

Well, the revamped Justice League series enters its third issue. I've been giving high praise to this series so far, it's been having that high quality movie feel, combined with DC's way of telling stories, it's been a fun ride so far. One of the best series I'm currently reading. I won't waste anytime talking about how The New 52 was a good idea anymore, it's time to get onto the review. Some spoilers, so skip to the last paragraph if you've yet to read the issue. The story continues with the demonic creatures from another world attacking the heroes. With a little help from the arrival of the Amazonian princess, Wonder Woman, they drive the creatures back, but not enough. Meanwhile, Victor is on the verge of dying, so his father makes a decision to send nanites into him. Back on the battlefield, the creatures are halted when another hero »

Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: Out Now In Stores & Digital Download (Via Comixology)
The team is almost fully assembled and Darkseids rise seems closer than ever.
With #3 hitting our shelves writer Geoff Johns is finally able to touch on the real core of this story without relying too heavily on introductory quips throughout the team.
This issue sees the introduction of Wonder Woman, she’s a slightly more comical version than what we are used to. Much like Thor in this years summer blockbuster, we are whiteness to a powerful god who is looking at our world with entirely fresh, almost childlike eyes, causing them to be astonished at the smallest thing (in this case ice cream). It’s an interesting shift from the Diana we know (especially when compared to the Wonder Woman see »

She has been a lot of fan's choice to portray Wonder Woman on the big screen for a while now despite already playing Lois Lane. Well sorry, but the lovely actress won't actually be playing the character much to the chagrin of many Smallville fans I'm sure. Instead she will be playing a woman who thinks she is the popular DC heroine in an episode of Harry's Law. Will we see her in the iconic (and revealing) costume? We just might! from TV Line.. TVLine has learned exclusively that the Smallville alumna is set to guest-star on NBC’s Harry’s Law — which currently airs Wednesdays at 9/8c and was just picked up for a full second season — as a psychologically infirm woman who retreats into the persona of the DC Comics heroine to help wreak revenge on perpetrators of domestic abuse. The site also suggests that since both Harry's Law »

Bethesda Game Studios The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a celebration of fantasy gaming. It operates on a grand scale, but doesn’t lose sight of intimate details; it’s elaborate, but eminently fun and very playable.
The latest installment in the Bethesda Game Studios role-playing series came out in the U.S. Friday for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC after around three years of development. It follows the highly regarded Oblivion chapter, which sold »

If you’re a regular reader of this column, you know that my daughter, Alixandra Gould – yes, she’s keeping her name – married the love of her life, Jeffrey Christopher Gonzalez, last week. (A big thank you! to Mike Gold for posting a beautiful column last week that I posted on Facebook, then e-mailed to every single person I’ve ever met just to make sure they read it, and which Alix and Jeff thought was terrifically cool.) So of course I decided to write about superhero marriages this week. Not a big leap, is it?
I just finished googling “superhero marriages.” There were “about” 7,750,000 hits in 0.23 seconds, the most recent being a slide show in the Huffington Post posted only four days ago – well, five days ago since this appears on Monday – on November 9, 2011 titled “Comic Book Weddings: 8 Of Our Favorite Superhero Weddings.” In order, they are (1) Spider-Man, a. »
