April 23, 2014: "Man of Steel" Truck Sale to Support LA Family HousingPrint

RAM Truck The Superman themed 2013 RAM 1500 truck featured at the World Premiere of "Man of Steel" in NYC is being sold at auction to support the LA Family Housing charity.

    Help support LA Family Housing, and bid on a one-of-a-kind custom 2013 RAM 1500 truck designed for "Man of Steel" at charitybuzz.

    The winner of this one of a kind package will take home the 2013 RAM 1500 truck designed to support the Warner Bros. blockbuster film, "Man of Steel", and the exact same car that was featured on the red carpet at the movie's NYC premiere. This is truly a collector's item!

L.A. Family Housing helps families transition out of homelessness and poverty through a continuum of housing enriched with supportive services.

The truck is Dark Ceramic Gray with a special vinyl wrap that adds the textured look of Superman's new suit, and the roof is done in high-gloss black, though you'd need the power of flight to see it on this tall rig. The grille, meanwhile, is finished with Anodized Red accents. The forged aluminum 17-inch black wheels are General Zod-approved and the interior is likewise tastefully upgraded with Superman-themed materials. Lastly, Kal-El's ultimate quad cab is capped with Superman logos front and rear where the traditional Ram logo would normally be.

With an estimated value of US$112,674, bidding on the truck currently stands at over US$47,000. Check it out!

WB Animation SAM REGISTER PROMOTED TO PRESIDENT, WARNER BROS. ANIMATION AND WARNER DIGITAL SERIES

Creative Executive Adds Oversight of a Newly Formed Live-Action Digital Content Production Unit to His Responsibilities

Warner Bros. Animation's Sam Register has been promoted to the newly created position of President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, it was announced today by Warner Bros. Television Group President and Chief Content Officer Peter Roth, to whom Register will report.

In this new role, Register will head up a newly formed live-action digital content production unit and will now be responsible for spearheading the development and production of original live-action digital series, tapping the creative talent already working at the Studio while also identifying opportunities for collaboration with new writers and producers. In addition to these new responsibilities for live-action digital series development and production, Register will also continue to run the Studio's television animation unit (WBA) as its new President, after having previously served for six years as WBA's Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs.

Peter Roth said: "Sam has done an outstanding job shepherding Warner Bros. Animation over the past six years, reinvigorating one of the most storied and accomplished animation production companies in this industry. His creative instincts coupled with boundless enthusiasm, passion and energy were all key drivers in WBA's recent successes, and I know that he will bring the same level of leadership and commitment to his new mission of building and expanding our digital series business. The possibilities under his guidance are limitless."

Current WBA television series developed and supervised by Register include Teen Titans Go!, The Tom and Jerry Show, and the upcoming Be Cool Scooby-Doo! and Wabbit - A Looney Tunes Production, for Cartoon Network, as well as the forthcoming Mike Tyson Mysteries, for Adult Swim. Register also oversees creative efforts for WBA's animated shorts, and he works closely with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on the Studio's original animated movies, including recent titles such as Justice League: War, Son of Batman, Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery and more.

Prior to his promotion, Register had served as WBA's Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs, since 2008, after having joined the Studio in November 2007 as a producer with a multi-property development and production deal at WBA. During his tenure at WBA, Register oversaw the development and production of new programming and content for all distribution outlets, including traditional animated product for television and promotional use; content for digital platforms such as DCBeyond.com and KidsWB.com; and animated films for the home entertainment marketplace.

Before joining Warner Bros., Register was a producer and senior animation executive at Cartoon Network for 10 years, overseeing numerous successful program launches and helping to grow CartoonNetwork.comCartoonNetwork.com from a small marketing portal to an exciting kids' entertainment destination.

"Sinestro"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Mike S. Miller
Inker: Salem Crawford
Cover: Jheremy Raapack

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

    What sells this issue is the dramatic irony, juxtaposition, and characterization, all involving Sinestro. Sinestro isn't just evil, no, as he's portrayed he's full tilt mad. It's creepy at some points, sinister at others, and just comical in one. All that being said, it's more of a page-turner than has been in Injustice for some time. Green Lantern and his rogues gallery aren't the metier of this reviewer, and the general knowledge of Sinestro as a villain usually suffices for the most part. However, Taylor, if what he's penned is original, goes to a level with Sinestro that makes him the last person Regime Superman should trust... and yet Regime Superman still contemplates Sinestro's aid. Sinestro has abilities Regime Superman can use, and has given Regime Superman the necessary card to play against the Guardians, in that they didn't save Krypton, a planet that was doomed to die nonetheless. Altogether, it makes for a more interesting issue, in what has been a very prosaic Year Two, thus far.

April 23, 2014: Supergirl Movie Screening and Comedy Act in UKPrint

Supergirl Bristol Bad Film Club and What The Frock are teaming up to screen the "Supergirl" movie along with a stand-up comedy act at The Cuban, Harbourside in Bristol.

    Starring the likes of Peter O'Toole, Faye Dunaway and Peter Cook (all of whom were clearly strapped for cash), Supergirl attempted to replicate the success of the first Superman movie by surrounding the unknown lead with some famous faces. It didn't work.

    We know what you're thinking: "But I love Supergirl! It was great when I was a kid!"

    Yes, we grew up loving Supergirl as well, but you have to admit, it's one of the most bizarre, cheap-looking and nonsensical superhero films ever made.

Comedian Amy Howerska will perform a comedy set before the screening of the film, which will take place at 8.00pm on April 24 at The Cuban, Harbourside, BS1 5SZ. Tickets are just £7 (in advance)/£8 (at the door). Visit the Bristol Bad Film Club website for tickets and further details.

"Forever Heroes"

Writer: Geoff Johns

Inker: Keith Champagne with Christian Alamy
Cover: Rod Reis
Variant Cover: RC Stoodios

Reviewed by: Michael J. Petty

    Oh it's good to be back! It's been two months since an issue of the New 52's headline title came out, and boy does it deliver. In this issue we have the Metal Men, finally reactivated, in action! We have Cyborg 2.0 now going up against his outdated doppelgänger Grid! And we have a small cliffhanger leading us into the final chapter of the Forever Evil saga that, I think we can all agree, has gone on a little too long.

    That being said, I've said in earlier reviews of this book's Forever Evil tie-ins that Victor Stone has finally come to terms with himself being man and machine, which I loved. But I don't think it was until this issue that the cycle has been completed. In the Digital Universe, he saw himself as human, but then when Grid, who represents his machine half, kills the human version of Victor, Cyborg reappears. Victor knows now that he's no longer Victor Stone, and that he's never been Grid, but that he is Cyborg, the bridge between the two. I loved how that was handled in this issue, especially with the Superman-esque chest-rip.

    So I liked this one.

    Despite my past issues with how the Lanterns fit into Smallville's established continuity and how and when past events affect the present, this really is an enjoyable story. It still reminds me a lot of The Last Starfighter, which is a very good thing. (Seriously, can anyone not like that movie?) Superman is swept into an intergalactic war, which despite his previous adventures, is much bigger than anything he imagined.

    One impressive thing this issue has done is make me interested in Parallax, which has been historically difficult for me. Frankly, I've never liked Parallax. I always saw it as a cheap ploy to undo the time when Hal Jordan was a villain, which despite its flaws, I always thought was a gutsy and dramatic move. With Parallax, I could practically hear DC pleading with readers, "Look! See? Hal was just possessed! So all those people he killed weren't his fault! You get it, right?" And then they had to cram the thing into the Green Lantern film, as well, and...

    You get the point.

    But here, I'm intrigued by Parallax. I actually want to know more about it, which isn't something I could say about previous versions.
