July 7, 2015: Official Website for 'DC Super Hero Girls'Print

DC Super Hero Girls

Back in April DC Entertainment and Mattel announced the upcoming launch of DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential.

Today, the official website for DC Super Hero Girls went live, with profiles on Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy and Katana. More content is expected to be added in the near future.

The website will eventually include an immersive digital experience, original digital content and digital publishing - providing opportunities for girls to interact with characters, learn about the storylines, and engage in customizable play. TV specials, made-for-videos, toys, apparel, books and other product categories will begin to rollout in 2016.

    Developed for girls aged 6-12, DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC Comics universe during their formative years - prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics' icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has her own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering her unique abilities, nurturing her remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.

DC Super Hero Girls

As master toy licensee, Mattel is collaborating with DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on DC Super Hero Girls' narrative creation, interactive digital activations and ultimately a toy line launching in 2016. Mattel category-leading firsts include a line of characters for the action figure category, an area of the industry that has been primarily developed with boys in mind, and fashion dolls featuring strong, athletic bodies that stand on their own in heroic poses.

The Random House Books for Young Readers imprint of Random House Children's Books has been appointed the master publishing partner for the franchise and will be creating a portfolio of books that will bring the DC Super Hero Girls world to life, beginning in Spring 2016. Random House's publishing program will be complemented by a series of original graphic novels from DC Entertainment. The LEGO Group will also be key to building the DC Super Hero Girls franchise, leveraging their experience and success engaging girls in creative construction play to bolster this universe through an array of LEGO® building sets designed to inspire girls' imaginations. Additionally, consumer products partners around the world will be engaged in creating a merchandise line dedicated to DC Super Hero Girls across all key categories.

DC Super Hero Girls will be on display at Comic-Con at the DCE booth (1915), the Mattel booth (3029), the Warner Bros. booth (4545), and the Random House booth (1515) all offering limited-edition swag and booklets with more character information.

"Hard Truth" - Part 2

Writer: Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder
Penciller: Aaron Kuder
Inker: Aaron Kuder

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    It's funny where a review like this takes you. When I started reading this issue my main problem with it was that, like last month, I plain don't like the idea behind this whole TRUTH "storyline". I use quotes because there are four main Superman books right now and three of those books are using the outcome of the final book as the inciting incident and that final book hasn't revealed how we got to this point and it looks like we won't know for several months. This is incredibly annoying. I know that the books weren't going to be crossing over into each other but I like my story telling to be a little more linear and one of the biggest problems I had with the Super books at the onset of the New 52 was that one book took place five years before the other. This hampered the modern day book because the background of this new version of the character hadn't been revealed yet. I realize that things are probably more coordinated with this story but that doesn't change the fact that we are supposed to buy into the idea that this HUGE thing happened to Superman but the details on that HUGE thing won't be revealed until some indeterminate date in the future.

    All of that is what I thought was going to be my biggest problem with the issue.

    Then I finished reading it.

    Wonder Woman herself stated that this is a fight to the death, why is she offering Regime the opportunity to surrender, break the rules, and place her mother's life in further jeopardy? Inconsistencies like this weigh down what could be a good match-up. Unfortunately, this is going the way of the circuitous superhero fight, where one hero gets the upper hand, then the other comes back. Now, if that doesn't happen, then everything that's been displayed in this universe is called into question. I don't believe that Regime Superman, who survived Mogo, and pushed the planet into the sun, would cringe on his knees like a punk from a broken arm. Neither do I believe Wonder Woman could withstand his heat vision, particularly when the image of someone being blasted away right next to her shows its apparent force. This fight has done absolutely nothing to push the story further. In fact, it's a reminder of how much has been lost since Year Two.

Cover: Yildiray Cinar with Rex Lokus

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

    If you've read enough comics, then you're familiar with the tropes involved in a 'hero vs hero' fight. There's always some contrived situation demanding that the heroes battle each other, and the fight is usually lackluster, with rare exception. This will go down in the annals of yet another boring fight, part I. The abilities possessed by Wonder Woman and Regime Superman, especially with their absent moral code, should produce a striking battle. Instead, it's a rote, two-step, pablum match... with exposition no less. No super-speed, no combat strategy, and worst of all, this is a battle to the death. Why is Regime Superman holding back? This is Regime Superman, killer extraordinaire, and he wants to play light with Wonder Woman of all people? Wonder Woman, who's blood-thirst is exceeded by no man, hence why she's "Wonder Woman". She's going to go berserk and break something.

July 6, 2015: Cavill on More Stand-Alone Superman MoviesPrint

Man of Steel In another EW.com report, Henry Cavill is quoted as reiterating that "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" isn't exactly a sequel to "Man of Steel".

    "As far as the individual character is concerned, this is not a Superman sequel," says Cavill. "It's more of an introduction to Batman, an opening to Justice League, and an expansion of the world that was created in Man of Steel."

But will we ever see him in another stand-alone Superman film?

    "There's plenty of time for individual Superman sequels," the actor says. "He's a tough character to tell. People like the darker vigilante. I think it speaks to the human psyche more easily rather than the god-like being that we can't really understand. Once we have a more expansive universe we can delve more into the character of Superman and hopefully tell more stories."
