A new animated movie and series will be featuring DC Comics’ biggest super-team, just in time to tie-in to Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Don’t worry: Kevin Conroy will be doing Batman again on the new TV show.
Superman III was not a good movie. But it gave us an evil Man of Steel who took shots and generally gave no fucks whatsoever. The jerkhole Superman who shows up in a new comic this week feels almost exactly like the one in that terrible 1983 threequel.
In the main Justice League comic, some of DC’s preeminent superheroes have become infused with the power of gods. All that increased might hasn’t exactly changed Superman, Batman and the Flash for the better. The Dark Knight’s campaign for justice was already obsessive but, when he becomes the God of Knowledge, it…
When he was Batman, Bruce Wayne was the master strategist of the Justice League. No one on DC’s premier superhero team was smarter than him. But Bruce Wayne can’t be the Dark Knight anymore. The World’s Greatest Superheroes want to make sure. A little magic lasso won’t hurt him, right?
Evan isn’t the only person reading comics around here. Here are some recent surprise favorites of mine. I didn’t expect to be recommending any of these to you:
The versions of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman who appear in the new animated Justice League film Gods and Monsters are dark. We’ve already seen glimpses, and the full film is indeed full of sick superhero moments. Hell, Superman calls Lois Lane a bitch. You should watch it.
“Dismembered, burnt alive, sucked of their blood...” That’s how one Justice League takes care of bad guys in their parallel universe. Sounds... efficient.
“You weren’t so quick to get rid of me last night.” “I notice you like to think you’re in control.” That’s the Wonder Woman of an alternate reality Justice League, talking about sex. She stabs lots of people with a big, black... sword.
If you thought the way that an alternate-reality version of Batman dealt with Harley Quinn was surprising, then wait and see what Superman does to Brainiac.
Always thought Harley Quinn was disturbing because of her twisted love affair with the Joker? Here’s a version of the supervillain that’s even more unhinged. And the Batman who takes her down in this alternate universe does something... harsh.
“Reality cannot survive another crisis,” says a character in the latest issue of Justice League. Dare we hope reboots are a thing of the past for DC Comics?
Superman is General Zod’s son. Wonder Woman’s the daughter of Ares, evil god of war. And Batman? He’s an actual vampire. Things are going to be different in the next animated Justice League movie.
Let's be real: the Green Lantern project that was also supposed to be a Justice League game didn't look like it was going to set the world on fire. But it's an interesting footnote in the history of superhero games, one that would've featured some of the most popular fictional characters ever created. The newest video…
Long before the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us, there was supposed to be another fighting game that featured the members of DC Comics' premier superhero team kicking each other's butts. It got cancelled and footage was never seen. Until now.
Zach Snyder's going to try and make everybody forget that the Superfriends cartoon ever existed.
Marvel and DC superheroes in a modded NBA 2k14... just what basketball needed! A modder named MGX has done just that with the PC version of the game, adding 25 well-known heroes to the roster.
Baseball starts in the spring. Just when that sport’s season is wrapping up, football kicks off and goes into the winter. When it comes to comics crossovers, though, it seems like big universe changing-events are always in season. Right now, DC and Marvel have major happenings threading across big chunks of their…
If you haven’t read Justice League #22 yet, go away somewhere and come back when you’re done. There are spoilers for the Injustice comics series and the Man of Steel movie, too. You've been warned.
Injustice: Gods Among Us, the latest fighting game based on the DC Universe characters, just hit the shelves today in North America. This gave us a great opportunity to ride back in time and see DC Comics characters featured in video games evolve from large dull pixels to realistic entities.
Professionally made comics simply shouldn't be this bad.
