Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Three - Chapter #12

Released Digitally: December 16, 2014

"Secret Weapon"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Mike S. Miller, Juan Albarran, & Bruno Redondo
Inker: Xermanico
Cover: Mike S. Miller with Rex Lokus

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    This issue had the makings of a better read than the last few in the series, but it undercut itself by rehashing the same meme, the same trope, the same malarkey that's more than trite at this point. Regime handles the fight with Etrigan well, and the writing is good in that we see Etrigan as a formidable foe, and not a weakness due to his having magical abilities. Time being on Regime's side, the fight would be his. However, conversation commences in the middle of things and disbelief sets in. Why Regime feels the need to question his opponent who is not as yet defeated, is more than unbelievable, it's moronic. This is coupled with the ridiculous pause that Regime undergoes when he discovers that Etrigan's new host is The Batman. He slows and pauses just long enough for Batman to throw the magic bubble in his mouth no less. His mouth. Etrigan in the form of a surprise attack isn't the problem; it's actually a smart move... if used in reverse. Have someone, Batman would be a good choice for his stealth, and then unleash the Demon. The reverse is yet another contrived plan that only works with the clairvoyant knowledge that the person who undergoes it will be stupid enough for it to work. Again, in order for the plan to work, the bubble has to enter Regime's mouth. His mouth.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Three - Chapter #11

Released Digitally: December 9, 2014

"Raise the Demon"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Bruno Redondo
Inker: Xermanico
Cover: Mike S. Miller with Rex Lokus

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Injustice continues to mark time and space, as opposed to deliver a story. The timely appearance of Etrigan allows for some action, but not even the Demon can make this installment turn any faster than the snail's pace it continues to tread. There is too much being done to keep the reader in the dark, to facilitate Madame Xanadu's vision, and that has inhibited any solid movement. Visions, prophecies being revealed work best with action preceding and accompanying them. A scene with Constantine and the rest, sitting at a table, ruminating on the meaning of the vision is less than what the issue should be. The fight between the Spectre and the Phantom Stranger was remarkably bland for two beings of such immense power, and again, slowed and made torpid by the need to keep readers in the dark as to whom the host for the Spectre currently is. The installments are short to begin with, so the plotting for them should take into account the languid nature of padding out the story, when it's more than obvious to anyone consuming the story.

December 18, 2014: From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman PodcastPrint

From Crisis to Crisis Welcome to the 178th episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

Jeff is happy this time out. Why? Because the boys are wrapping up their coverage of the WORLDS COLLIDE crossover by looking at seven...yes seven different comic books. Mike liked the stories well enough but Jeff...well, Jeff had some problems with how everything went down. The story picks back up in SUPERBOY #7 and continues into HARDWARE #18 but to be fair the boys don't give those issues the full synopsis/commentary treatment. They reserve that for SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL #36, which is the only issue to get full coverage during the course of this episode which is probably why it has a reasonable (for this show anyway) running time. The big fight between Superman and Icon goes down in ICON #16 and from there the fight against Rift moves to STEEL #7 and BLOOD SYNDICATE #17, which has one of the best commentaries on early nineties comics ever. The story concludes in STATIC #14 where the heroes of two worlds fight to save both from being merged together by Rift. Finding that they have some time left over Mike and Jeff hop into a cab, pay their $6.50 and take a trip to a feature they like to call MEANWHILE AT THE DAILY PLANET!

Next time: Things go back to normal if by normal you mean a battle ravaged Metropolis and the return of two of the newer villains from this era. Issues covered will be SUPERMAN #92, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #515 and ACTION COMICS #702.

You can subscribe to the show in two ways. First there is the RSS Feed and there is also the iTunes link. You can also download the episode directly.

If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, leave comments here or email them at fromcrisistocrisis@gmail.com. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome.

December 16, 2014: Brandon Routh Talks About His Superhero SecretsPrint

Brandon Routh Brandon Routh, who played Superman/Clark Kent in the 2006 movie "Superman Returns", has participated in a video interview with SuperheroYou.com in which he talks about what he learned playing Superman, what his own superpower is, and who the superheroes in his life are.

"So playing the role of Superman, I had to explore a lot of things, one being: what's it like to be the most powerful being on Earth?" Brandon said. "What I found in doing all that and playing the character is that we should all be kind of aspiring to be more like Superman in our daily lives. Yes, we may not be able to fly and have X-Ray vision, but we all have the ability to be the best that we can be, to upgrade ourselves in all areas of life and keep doing and that kind of thing."
