Cover: Jae Lee with June Chung

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

    The fighting continues. It's curious to imagine how the last few issues would play out in standard comic book form, with all this melee and no movement. The majority of Year Four has taken place on the steps of the Hall of Justice, comprising a fight that won't start, yet won't end. The battle that should be taking place is with the Insurgency, but they've been owned and reduced to less than side-line players, except for the obligatory self-righteous scene on the part of Batwoman. That Batwoman won't kill Wonder Woman, after the death of Huntress and Renee Montoya reduces Injustice to black and white formulae, as opposed to the supposed grey area and blurred lines the book purports itself to be. Super-powered heroes bad, crime fighting heroes good. What's more, Wonder Woman just pushed Regime Superman to the brink; Why is she having such a hard time with Batwoman, warrior extraordinaire that she is?

August 3, 2015: Jenna Dewan-Tatum Cast as Lucy Lane for "Supergirl"Print

Jenna Dewan-Tatum Jenna Dewan-Tatum has been cast in the role of Lucy Lane for the "Supergirl" TV series.

    In her mid-20s to early 30s, Lucy is described as as brash, funny and beautiful as her sister Lois, yet strong, smart and successful in her own right.

Lucy is expected to be introduced as an ex-girlfriend of James Olsen (played by Mehcad Brooks), whom Kara has a bit of a crush on. Whether this will introduce some kind of tension or love-triangle between the characters is unknown at this point in time.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who is the wife of actor Channing Tatum, most recently played the role of Freya Beauchamp in the "The Witches of East End" TV series.

"Supergirl" premieres Monday, October 26 at 8:30pm ET on CBS, before moving into its regular 8.00pm Monday time slot.

August 3, 2015: Stan Lee Picks a Winner in "Batman v Superman"Print

Batman v Superman The great Stan Lee has revealed who he thinks would win in a fight between Superman and Batman in a recent interview with the Boston Herald...

"Oh, Superman," answered the 92-year-old Lee. "He's indestructible, he can do anything. And Batman relies on a few weapons. If this is real, a fight between Superman and Batman, there's no way you'd bet on Batman."

Even with Ben Affleck playing the Dark Knight, Lee couldn't be persuaded from his answer. "Well, I like Ben Affleck," said Lee. "If they get Mortimer Snerd to play Superman, maybe Affleck would have a chance."

For those wondering, Mortimer Snerd is a ventriloquist dummy dating back to the late 1930s.

Stan gives his answer at 3 minutes and 50 seconds into the interview.


August 3, 2015: Could Superman Be Sued for "Man of Steel" Damages?Print

Man of Steel In a fun bit of hypothetical legal debating in episode 161 of the Geek's Guide to the Galaxy podcast, lawyer and comic book fan James Daily debates the legal ramifications behind the battle in Metropolis seen in the movie "Man of Steel".

    Mr Daily said if Superman was to be sued for trashing Metropolis, the outcome would not be favourable as prosecutors would argue he could easily have chosen a more appropriate location to confront his nemesis.

    "I don't recall any particularly good reason why it needed to happen there and why it couldn't have happened in, say, Antarctica," he said.

    Mr Daily said if Superman was to try and claim self-defence, it would likely be thrown out the window because he did not exercise a reasonable level of care while in battle.

    "What you can't necessarily do is take a machine gun and just spray bullets wildly into a crowd in an effort to strike the person who's threatening you," he said.

    Mr Daily said Superman's best hope would be to use the sudden-peril doctrine to try and convince the court he should be held to a lower standard of care because of the emergency situation.

    Alternatively, he suggested Superman use the defence of justification to argue if he hadn't engaged in battle with Zod, the outcome would have been far more drastic.

    Thoroughly flawed, but enjoyable.

    I'm skipping the reveal until the end but let's look at the story without it. Hordr as a concept is actually pretty sound. Watching a target, gathering information, ransoming their servitude. A villain with that kind of power over people can be as deadly as any super powered villain but then you see the flying buses, solid shadow ninjas, the needless cameo of Toymaster, the metal mask ID passes... that's when it all falls apart.
