We Likely Won’t See Zod Or Lex Luthor In Supergirl Season 3

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

So far, Supergirl has done a fine job when it comes to adapting a wide array of villains from comics to screen, sometimes feeling like a live action answer to Superman: The Animated Series. And while some baddies to exist within this universe are seemingly being introduced for the first time (Bizarro, Parasite, Metallo and Mr. Mxyzptlk immediately come to mind), there are some major players who have obviously been left to Kara’s Boy Scout of a cousin.

One such example is that of Zod, whom we saw appear in the season 2 finale as a hallucination of Clark’s. As it turns out, this was more so a nod to all this version of the Man of Steel has gone through, and it sounds like we shouldn’t expect Mark Gibbon to reprise the role anytime soon.

Here’s what Andrew Kreisberg had to say on that front, according »

Super Sons #6 Review

19 July 2017 7:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review contains minor spoilers.

If you’re a fan of what Peter J. Tomasi has been doing on Superman, you should be reading his other penned title, Super Sons. Following the adventures of Damian Wayne (Robin) and Jon Kent (Superboy), it’s pure, exhilarating fun as these two polar opposites learn to get along, much like their pops had to. Now, in Super Sons #6, the promise of Superboy joining the Teen Titans is teased.

In this issue, Damian takes Jon out for superhero training on a Friday night. Naturally, Damian wants to be a jerk and intimidate the likes of jaywalkers, while Jon focuses on saving cats and changing car tires. The Teen Titans pop by and Damian departs with them on a new mission, leaving Jon behind and making sure that he knows he’s no Titan.

A disappointed Jon heads off home, where he sits in front »

Stan Lee Routinely Trolled DC During Marvel's Early Years

5 July 2017 4:27 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We've discussed whether or not there's a rivalry between DC and Marvel (there's not), and what it means for superheroes going forward (it means nothing). Kevin Feige recently downplayed the topic as well, citing what's good for the Dceu is also good for the McU, but if you go way back, to a time when Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, and The Avengers had just exploded onto the comic book scene, unseating Batman, Superman, and the Justice League of America from their positions at the top of the industry...a certain legendary creator decided to stir the pot and stoke the flames of competition, but in a uniquely humorous, good-natured way.

According to THR, Marvel's editor/head writer at the time, Stan Lee, frequently took shots at his distinguished competition, to play up Marvel's growing power in comics -- that's right folks, Stan Lee is the original troll! Back in the »

Green Arrow Writer Talks Team-Ups With Justice League In New Video

4 July 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After writer Benjamin Percy did a fine job of capping Green Arrow‘s first year in the Rebirth era with issue #25, which also served as a great jumping on point, it seems like he’s more than ready to plunge into the next major story arc.

Not long ago, we were granted our first look inside the opening chapters of “Hard Traveling Hero,” which is set to take the Emerald Archer beyond the borders of Star City (formerly Seattle). So, if that title rings a bell, it should, because it’s paying homage to Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams’ legendary run on Green Lantern/Green Arrow, something Percy didn’t shy away from admitting right off the bat in a recent interview conducted by DC All Access’ Whitney Moore.

Joe Corallo: United Against Hysteria

3 July 2017 6:15 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I didn’t think I was going to write about Howard Chaykin, Image Comics, and The Divided States of Hysteria. When the first controversy sparked up the beginning of last month I had already committed to an interview with a team working on a Kickstarter project for my column that followed said controversy. While people still talked about it some after I thought people had basically covered the scope of the issue and I wouldn’t have anything constructive to add.

Then this happened followed by this apology from Image Comics and Howard Chaykin. I tend to discuss these sort of occurrences in the comics community and I really haven’t lately so it’s time for me to get back to that.

Full disclosure: I have met Howard Chaykin before at a few conventions, got a Lois Lane sketch from him some years ago, and attended a panel »

Panel Discussion #38

28 June 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Hello again, and welcome to the recently resurrected Panel Discussion. I’m Kieran, and every week I’m going to go through some of the best comics of the week to give you an idea what you should pick up that you might have missed. This is another stacked week with some fantastic first issues and great jumping on points for books you might be behind on, so let’s take a look at what’s on offer.

The big release of this week isn’t a Marvel or DC book, but is instead Secret Weapons from Valiant Entertainment (Secret Weapons #1 review). Valiant has been quietly and consistently the best publisher of superhero comics for a good couple of years now. It might seem like a bold statement, but if you’re going by ratio of quality to books published, Valiant takes it in a walk. The new incarnation of »

‘Action Comics #981′ & ‘Green Lantern Corps #22′ Review

23 June 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Action Comics #981

Written by Dan Jurgens | Art by Jackson Herbert | Published by DC Comics

Superman haters often complain that it is impossible to construct a compelling story because he is just so powerful. How can you have stakes when your hero can do just about anything? Well with this arc Dan Jurgens’s answer to that is to create a team of three separate Superman villains in Cyborb Superman, The Eradicator, and General Zod, all of which nearly took him out on their own previously. Honestly, that is a pretty good answer.

In a way, this Revenge arc is a mini event that ties in elements from the Superman series as well as Suicide Squad. Now all these pieces that were once separate, like Amanda Waller taking control of Zod for her own personal goals, are all coming together in this storyline. As Superman faces off against these three individuals the world watches as the Man of Steel is perhaps for the first time over his head due to the foes he is facing. Adding to the pile of awfulness is the trip he took to the Black Vault that has left him in a state of disarray. What is revealed by the end of this issue does come off as a silly direction to go, but since Rebirth Jurgens has made Superman stories that should not work actually work. Plus it appears Superman will be getting some much-needed help next issue from some of his super allies as well.

Jackson Herbert’s art works as it fits into the typical DC house style we have seen with this series and other main DC books. One issue is his depiction of Zod lacks any consistency. Depending on the panel his age tends to fluctuate. Minus that small gripe he gets the job done.

Action Comics has been hit or miss with its different arcs and so far Revenge is turning out to be a major hit. One full of big adventure with the type of world-ending stakes you want in an Action Comics story.

**** 4/5

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #22

Written by Robert Venditti | Art by Ethan Van Sciver | Published by DC Comics

Now that Yellow and Green Lanterns have established an uneasy alliance issue twenty-two is the first major test of their truce. The Planet Vault is being robbed and it is up to the Lanterns to stop it and save the day. Robert Venditti made the right choice by not making their first test some sort of universal disaster as the Lanterns deal with this threat rather easily. By doing this Venditti can allow this trust to build until it eventually implodes.

Hal Jordan shows his hand as it is clear he is not fully trusting of the Yellow Lanterns. He clearly is looking for any reason to break the truce and is still not fully willing to buy into this new status quo. Venditti also gave a great little moment with Jon Stewart as he shows some out of character excitement. Seeing Stewart quietly cheering to himself, “I did it” provided a welcome laugh out loud moment.

Ethan Van Sciver returns to art and how I wish he was on this book full-time. His facial designs have so much detail and paneling allows to book to flow very smoothly. This was one of the quickest reads I have had with this series, although I did make sure to go back and just soak in some of his art more.

It was a welcome to see these Lanterns facing off against more than themselves. The differing color Lanterns idea has become stale at this point so anytime the focus is on a different villain it is a breath a fresh air.

Yes, Harley Quinn Is Running For Mayor This Fall

20 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Knowing that Harley Quinn is about to celebrate her 25th anniversary, it’s understandable that DC up the ante by taking the character that co-publisher and legendary artist Jim Lee recently described as their “fourth pillar” (Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman being the other three) in crazy new directions. So, in addition to an oversized one-shot hitting stands this fall, readers can look forward to the flagship book paying off a long gestating B-plot.

If you’ve been reading Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti’s run on Harley Quinn up until now – in both the New 52 and Rebirth – then you’d know the mayor of New York City is about as corrupt as they come (in the story, of course). To this point, he’s been a constant nuisance to our gal, has employed cannibals to feed on the city’s homeless and, more recently, enlisted the services of Harley »

Batman and Harley Quinn Premiere Is Happening at Comic-Con

19 June 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Celebrating a decade of DC Universe Original Movie world premieres in San Diego, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (Wbhe) will once again give fans their first look at an all-new animated feature with the presentation of Batman and Harley Quinn on the Friday night (July 21, 2017) of Comic-Con International. Since the debut of the DC Universe Original Movies in 2007 with Superman: Doomsday, Wbhe has premiered its next-to- be-released film (when available) before 4,250 ardent fans in the San Diego Convention Center's massive Ballroom 20. The studio has also released a new photo of Harley Quinn from this animated adventure.

In the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment movie Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet, and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, »

Ed Catto: Spellbound by Batman

19 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

When Leonard Nimoy died, several comic conventions paused for a moment of silence as fans offered up the Vulcan salute. Those were lovely gestures as the nerd community showed how beloved the actor, and his signature role, was to them.

I wish that Batman’s Adam West had a signature gesture like that. A hands-on-hips pose means Superman. The Vulcan salute embodies all of Star Trek’s mythology. Television’s Wonder Woman had a spinning motion (it enabled her to change from her meek self into her heroic costume) that we of a certain age remember. Iron Man kind of owns that punching-the-ground-while-crouching pose. But TV’s Batman really could’ve used an iconic pose.

Perhaps it would be holding a bomb, with a lighted fuse, above one’s head? Perhaps that silly/sexy Batusi dance move, evoking a bat’s eyes and ears? Somehow they just don’t seem right. »

Mr. Oz And Tim Drake Feature In Action Comics And Detective Comics This September

14 June 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s becoming quite obvious that DC’s going for the slow burn when it comes to unraveling the bigger mysteries surrounding the Rebirth era. Actually, it’s kind of funny the double standard upheld by us as comic book readers because we’ll wait years to see the showdown between the Avengers and Thanos in the movies, but will become impatient waiting to learn the true identity of Mr. Oz. But, in our defense, comparing a storytelling format that offers you two or three installments per year as opposed to several each month is akin to apples and oranges.

Speaking of Mr. Oz, it was revealed not that long ago that he’ll be taking on a greater role in Action Comics beginning in August. From what we can tell, Rob Williams’ two-parter will serve as prelude to “The Oz Effect,” which is set to be penned by a returning Dan Jurgens. »

This review contains minor spoilers. 

It’s fair to say that a lot of fans haven’t been pleased with the Justice League series of late, making it one of the least liked of the generally well-received DC Rebirth relaunch. If you’re one of those who were turned away by writer Bryan Hitch’s convoluted storytelling, then this is the perfect time to jump back in. Issue #22 introduces a new creative team and they deliver a fun, if undemanding, read with lots of lighter-hearted, comic book thrills held together by an enjoyable team dynamic.

Justice League #22 sees the League quarantined in the Watchtower after Green Lanterns Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz accidentally let in a swarm of alien insects after dealing with an asteroid heading for Earth. It’s an entertaining run-through of the old »

Dean Cain has made 3 more Christmas movies

7 June 2017 3:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jun 7, 2017

Lois & Clarke actor Dean Cain has added another three new Christmas movies to his legacy, but only one of them has a dog in it (we think)...

In the last 16 years, Dean Cain - former Superman and current Superdad - has made 16 Christmas movies.

See related  Kevin Feige on Black Panther, female superhero movie Thor: Ragnarok - international trailer lands

Important to note, here, that he hasn't made one a year. No. During 2014, for example, he made 4 in a row (Merry Ex-Mas, A Belle For Christmas, The Three Dogateers and Small Town Santa).

If you're new to Den Of Geek (or just weren't aware) we've watched nearly all of them, including the many made-for-tv ones where his co-star is a talking dog (and, in a lot of cases, multiple talking dogs).

Well, since we last updated our article, Mr Cain has made three more Christmas films - Beverly Hills Christmas, »

Comic Book Review – Wonder Woman by George Perez Omnibus Vol. 2

30 May 2017 1:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews Wonder Woman by George Perez Omnibus: Vol. 2…

Following the events of Invasion, Wonder Woman and Captain Atom must locate the missing Steve Trevor, while the citizens of Themyscira witness the arrival of a new man on their island. This volume also includes the origins of both Cheetah and Silver Swan, the appearance of a lost tribe of Egyptian Amazons and more! Collects Wonder Woman #25-45 and Annual #2.

With Wonder Woman being released in just a short couple of days, now is the perfect time to dive into some classic stories featuring the Amazonian Princess. Thankfully, DC has released the second volume in writer/artist George Perez’s famous run of the title with Wonder Woman by George Perez Omnibus: Vol. 2.

This massive book continues from the end of the first volume and comes in at 552 pages, collecting Wonder Woman #25 – 45 and Wonder Woman Annual #2. There is a wealth »

Mindy Newell: Bend Over

29 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“I won’t be ig-nored, Dan,” said Alex Forest (Glenn Close) to her illicit lover Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) in Fatal Attraction. And so said a large enough number of disconcerted people who were fed up with being ig-nored by the political elite gathered around the Potomac basin to swing the Electoral College vote in favor of Donald Trump. Go fuck yourselves, they said. Bend over, said Trump.

It’s been one lie after another, one alternative fact after another, and one tweet after another since the inauguration, all to assuage the ego of the malignant narcissist who sits in the oval office. His sickophants trip over each other in their eagerness to obfuscate the truth and stay in their own bubbles of power. Erstwhile enemies, thugs, and bullies are welcomed and coddled and credit is taken where it is not due. Everything is upside down and inside out. And »

When we think of some of the most definitive artists to lend their pencils to Batman over the past 78 years, such greats as Bob Kane, Dick Sprang, Neal Adams, Frank Miller, Bruce Timm and Jim Lee immediately come to mind. But, in recent years, the torch has been passed to incredible talents such as Tony S. Daniel, Greg Capullo and the subject of today’s interview, Jason Fabok.

Having arrived on the scene several years ago with a gig on Superman/Batman, it wasn’t long before Fabok filled in for David Finch on a couple issues of Batman: The Dark Knight before it was relaunched for the New 52. And before anyone knew what hit them, he was drawing what I believe to be the most badass rendition of Batman of this decade in Detective Comics, Batman Eternal, »

Thom Zahler’s “Time & Vine”: Pour Me a Glass and Leave the Bottle

24 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Comics creator Thom Zahler is known for his entertaining and insightful romantic and relationship comics, particularly Love and Capes, a superhero romance that starts with Superman-adjacent hero The Crusader deciding to tell his non-superpowered girlfriend the truth about his dual identities; and Long Distance, a tale about a couple who meet in an airport and have to figure out how to successfully have, you guessed it, a long distance relationship. Both books contain a healthy serving of shrewd commentary on human interactions and romance, but don’t sacrifice the fun of humor or pop culture references to the need for drama.

I appreciate these stories not only in themselves, but also because sometimes the medium of comics as a whole seems to be overshadowed by the all-encompassing, never-ending, and dramatically violent superhero stories of the Big Two, Marvel and DC. Don’t get me wrong – I love me some »

Lex Luthor To Confront Mr. Oz This August In Action Comics #986

23 May 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since the Rebirth era kicked off last summer, one of the biggest mysteries it’s yielded has been that of the identity of the shadowy Mr. Oz. Many readers have theorized him to be Ozymandias of Watchmen fame, a fire that the conclusion to “The Button” added fuel to. One thing, however, has remained certain: The hooded fellow has a vested interest in Superman.

And while we may not learn who he really is until Doomsday Clock hits stands this November, it looks like we’ll at least get something worthwhile this August in the pages of Action Comics when “Mr. Oz makes his final move against the Man of Tomorrow.” Oddly enough, this arc won’t be penned by fan favorite Dan Jurgens, but rather, Rob Williams, whom we already know to be taking the reins of Trinity that very month. Whether the switch is permanent or Jurgens is »
