Milk Wars Introduces A Batman Scarier Than Any In Dark Nights: Metal

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the Mother Panic/Batman Special #1, part 2 of the Milk Wars crossover by Jody Houser, Ty Templeton, Keiren Smith, Magdalene Visaggio and Sonny Liew, in stores now.

The Young Animal/DC Universe crossover has already proven to be something quite different from what readers usually expect from a comic book event. The first issue of the so-called “Milk Wars” saw the Doom Patrol and the Justice League of America (sans Batman) clash, but when the two teams met, the tone was much more Young Animal than it was traditional Dcu. Both super-teams had no choice but to fight when the Jla fell victim to an evil inter-dimensional organization known as Retconn, which is using its enforcer Milkman Man and a special brand of reality-warping milk to homogenize every person in the world. In the end, the Jla reverted back to normal, and the two teams

Steve Orlando, the writer of Justice League of America, co-wrote the special with Gerard Way, curator of the Young Animal imprint, with at by Aco. “Milk Wars” runs weekly over the next five weeks in five interconnected one-shots culminating with Doom Patrol/Justice League of America #1 on Feb. 28, which will again be written by Orlando and Way.

Justice League: No Justice May Seal the Fate of DC’s Titans

The recently announced Justice League: No Justice four-issue event series is supposed to bring the teams of Justice League, Justice League of America, Teen Titans and Titans together. The only problem is that the Titans are nowhere to be found on the event’s rosters. Representatives of the Justice League and Teen Titans have been placed on four specialized teams alongside their greatest villains, but with the likes of Nightwing, Donna Troy and Wally West missing, how are the Titans supposed to be involved here?

Batman Must Pick One Justice League (And Here’s Our Suggestion)

Batman is such a reader magnet, it’s hard to believe he wasn’t always in every Justice League. Today he’s part of two Leagues, the no-modifier A-list team (which we’ll call “Jl Prime” to avoid confusion) and the more eclectic Justice League of America. He also presides over an unrelated Gotham-centric team in Detective Comics. His membership in Justice League Prime reinforces its elite status, while he’s more of a mentor to the new Jla.

When Did Superman First Show a Vulnerability to Magic?

In “When We First Met”, we spotlight the various characters, phrases, objects or events that eventually became notable parts of comic lore, like the first time someone said, “Avengers Assemble!” or the first appearance of Batman’s giant penny or the first appearance of Alfred Pennyworth or the first time Spider-Man’s face was shown half-Spidey/half-Peter. Stuff like that. Today we reveal when Superman’s magic vulnerability began!

To be clear, Superman doesn’t technically have a specific magic vulnerability. He is not More vulnerable to magic than other people. It’s just that he has no special defenses against magic, and thus, something that would magically affect a typical person would also affect Superman. Sometimes, writers (especially Justice League of America writers) so desperate for something to slow Superman down would often act as if magic was a special problem for Superman. It is not.

Cougar Town’s Ian Gomez joins Supergirl as Snapper Carr

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Ian Gomez (Cougar Town) has signed on to play the DC character Snapper Carr in the upcoming second season of Supergirl.

The show’s incarnation of the character is described as “a headstrong, sharp-witted newsman, hired by Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) to be the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine. Snapper’s commitment to hard-hitting journalism pushes CatCo reporters to dig deeper in the pursuit of excellence. He’s a man who tells people what he thinks of them, and his no-holds barred approach pushes Kara (Melissa Benoist) in unexpected ways.”

Lucas ‘Snapper’ Carr was created by Gardner Fox and Mike Sekowsky and made his first appearance in The Brave and the Bold in 1960, before going on to become a supporting character to the Justice League of America team.

Supergirl is set to return for its second season on its new home at The CW on October 10th.

Legends Of Tomorrow: exploring season 1’s cliffhanger ending

facebook

twitter

google+

Legends Of Tomorrow ended its first season with a big ol’ hint of things to come. With spoilers, here’s what it meant...

This article contains spoilers for Legends Of Tomorrow’s season 1 finale, as well as revealing Zoom from The Flash’s secret identity.

Vandal Savage is dead; murdered at three different points in time. (Even some serious ashes-tampering by Malcolm Merlyn surely couldn’t undo that... could it?) But the story of Rip Hunter and The Waverider crew - now sans Kendra and Carter - is far from finished.

Legends Of Tomorrow will return for a second season as part of The CW’s fall 2016-2017 line up. As such, season 1 ended with a standard-issue tease of things to come. Shortly after Dominic Purcell’s Mick mentioned being hungry for chicken and the gang began wandering away, another Waverider crash landed from the sky in a big puff of smoke.

You Oughta Know: Vandal Savage

With comic book adaptations on almost every channel and streaming service, fans will meet many new characters with extensive backstories. We’re here to introduce these characters to help lessen the learning curve.

Arrow and The Flash are crossing over again to do some heavy lifting for Legends of Tomorrow, but that could be said about both shows’ earliest episodes this season. Not only will “Legends of Today” and “Legends of Yesterday” give everyone a look at Hawkman and Hawkgirl, they’ll also introduce the spinoff’s villain: Vandal Savage.

Vandal is one DC’s most enduring and formidable villains, appearing as an antagonist since 1944 when he was created by Alfred Bester and Martin Nodell. The character is an immortal who’s terrorized civilizations throughout history, claiming to have either been or collaborated with figures like Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan.

Mike Gold: The All-Star Secretary

Here’s what gets me about Wonder Woman.

She is, rightfully, symbolic of strong women who can take care of themselves, stand up for themselves, and help others – men and women alike – do the same. These are very good things. She started out before America entered World War II, so you can’t really attribute “Rosie the Riveter” juju to her origins: she was created at a time when most strong women were to be found in movies, and by then almost always in front of the camera and not behind it.

To be sure, there were plenty of other women super-heroes in comics. Some were spin-offs or sidekicks to male superheroes – Mary Marvel, Bulletgirl and the original Hawkgirl come to mind – but others were stand-alone creations: the original Black Widow (1940), Phantom Lady (1941), the original Black Cat (1942), Liberty Belle (1943), and my personal favorite, Miss Fury (1941), the only one of the bunch that was created,

15 Terrible Scenes In Awesome Comic Book Movies

Marvel

In the right hands, comic book movies are the pinnacle of blockbuster entertainment and, despite the grumbles of naysayers, it looks like this trend isn’t ending anytime soon. A quick glance at the most anticipated movies of the coming years is a who’s who of graphic novels. However, superhero movies haven’t always been this awesome…

Back in 1997, a younger version of me remembers being genuinely thrilled when the world’s tackiest Justice League Of America film premiered on TV. It’s impossible to imagine now, but in a year when Batman & Robin was the most successful comic book movie, even something as shoddy as that was cause for excitement.

Fortunately, we’ve come a looong way since then, but even the best comic book films contain vestiges of this shameful past. While we’re no longer subjected to Bat-Nipples and the like, no superhero movie is perfect,

A New Jla Animated Series May Be Coming To Cartoon Network!

A Reddit user that was touring Cartoon Network took this picture of some of their new show posters and a Jla poster was included.  This is clearly not for the Bruce Timm Justice League or Justice League Unlimited shows, as their names were never presented as the Jla.  There was a Jla: Trapped in Time direct to DVD feature last year, but that doesn't appear to be related.

It shouldn't come as a shock to fans that a new Jla (Justice League of America) cartoon is in the works over at Cartoon Network.  After all, the DC Comics cinematic universe includes an upcoming Justice League film, and lets face it Batman v Superman may as well be a Justice League trial run at this point.  

Details on cast and crew are not yet available.  Legions of Gotham will continue to dig with our sources and report any updates as they are revealed!
