November 20, 2014: Dan Jurgens Looks Back on "The Death of Superman" 22 Years LaterPrint

Death of Superman ComicBook.com has published an interview with Dan Jurgens, the writer and artist who (as part of the larger creative team on board the Superman family of titles at the time) delivered the killer blow to the Man of Steel in "Superman #75", which celebrated its 22nd anniversary this past week.

Here's part of the interview in which Dan talks about the public reaction to the "Death of Superman"...

    So what was the real world like without Superman? What was the national sentiment and mood?

    It's hard to paraphrase, but I think almost every major newspaper had a columnist who wrote something about "What Does Superman Mean To Us?" And "What does it mean when he's gone?" And they might have pointed to a national cynicism or, loss of innocence, or maybe there's no longer a place for a big blue boycott, or maybe e those people who are in charge have no idea what they're doing, or something like that. That's what it got into.

    And what was the fan community's response back then? You didn't have the Internet's echo chamber to fall back on. How did you deal with the outcry that followed the issue?

    The outcry actually started long before. Once the solicitation catalogs came out, that's when it really started. That's where, you're right, the Internet, while it existed, it wasn't there in the sense we know it today. It was just barely a glimmer in anyone's eye. More than anything, we had the letters. We got them at the office, we got the phone calls, that's how we heard back. In a way, it was a little more immediate. And when I say "immediate," that's because people - it's so easy just to drop a comment on a message board these days. But back then, you had to pick up the phone and actually make a call. Or you had to sit down, write a letter, and send it in. We started hearing from people as soon as the solicitations came out.

November 19, 2014: Johns and Fabok on "Justice League" and the "Amazo Virus"Print

Justice League #36 MTV.com caught up with writer Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok to discuss the "Amazon Virus" storyline currently taking place within the "Justice League" comic book. Here's part of the interview...

    Geoff Johns: The idea is, just as humans have evolved into metahumans. What if another life-form on Earth evolved in the same way? What would a superhuman virus do to the world? I wanted to tap into that fear and paranoia, because the Justice League aren't prepared for something like that.

    When I wrote this script, it was all about putting Jay through his paces. I wanted to do a very slow, creepy, what is going... Why would there be money floating around? And then the action of Batman and Superman, the strangeness of Lex Luthor investigating the League, so that Jay would have to do everything in this first issue.

    Like the Diana/Lex scene, it's Lex projecting onto Diana all this stuff that she would never do. She just wants to figure this out. That scene in particular scene has a nice subtly of character that Jay captured beautiful.

"Justice League #36" is available now in both print and digitally.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Three - Chapter #7

Released Digitally: November 11, 2014

"Raven's Rescue"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Bruno Redondo, Xermanico
Inker: Xermanico
Cover: Neil Gouge with Rex Lokus

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

    It looks like a reader will have to suffer through more padding before getting anything of decency from Injustice for a while. This installment has the typical and usual structural problems and ludicrous character moments, and they all fall on Regime for the most part. You have the Spectre for an ally in a situation that involves magic, and of course, you rush off half-cocked into an obvious trap. What is more, how in the world is Regime faster than the Spectre, who could have barred his way or stopped him with little problem. Taylor makes the same error in relation to magic that too many other writers have done, and at this point, it's just lazy. Superman isn't vulnerable to magic, he just isn't immune to it. A magic shield may be strong enough to withstand his punches, but it wouldn't draw blood from him unless it was conjure, specifically, to negate his invulnerability. The way Taylor and other writers approach it, you could kill Superman with a ruby or glass slipper.

November 18, 2014: New Titles Announced for Week Two of "Convergence"Print

DC Comics has announced the next wave of titles in their company-wide "Convergence" event, with 10 new titles scheduled to go on sale in the second week of April 2015... Three of which are Superman related:

Superman: Man of Steel SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL
Writer: Louise Simonson
Artist: June Brigman and Roy Richardson, with color by John Rauch
Metropolis was taken when Superman was missing, so it's up to Steel to guard the city from the heroes of GEN13 in his absence.

Supergirl: Matrix SUPERGIRL: MATRIX
Writer: Keith Giffen
Artist: Ramon Bachs, with color by Hi-Fi
What do Supergirl, Lady Quark, and Ambush Bug have in common? Well... nothing really. But that didn't stop us from sticking them in a story together. You are SO welcome.

Superboy SUPERBOY
Writer: Fabian Nicieza
Artist: Karl Moline and Jose Marzan Jr, with color by Hi-Fi
Has Kon-El earned the right to be the man of steel? Kon will have to prove his mettle in battle against the Superman of Kingdom Come! But what if the only way to save Metropolis is to lose the fight?

If you missed it, last week we posted details on two Superman related books in the first wave of "Convergence" books:

Lois and Superman SUPERMAN
Writer: Dan Jurgens
Artist: Lee Weeks and Dan Jurgens/Norm Rapmund
Superman and Lois deal with the impending birth of their child as he is called in to protect the city.

JUSTICE LEAGUE
Writer: Frank Tieri
Artist: Vicente Cifuentes
When Supergirl, Zatanna, and Jade went to Jessie Quick's baby shower, they didn't expect to be taken to another planet for a year, or to be attacked by Flashpoint Aquaman.

"Convergence" comprises a nine-part weekly comic book series that begins on April 1 with issue #0 and ends with issue #8 on May 27, as well as 40 brand-new 2-part mini-series to be published throughout April and May. The story spins out of the finales of "Earth 2: Worlds End" and "New 52: Futures End." The event will follow Brainiac as he hoards cities from all over the multiverse and captures them in "domes." Starting in April, the entire current crop of DC series will be placed on hold for two months while 40 new two-part series, each one seemingly set in one of the publisher's numerous alternate realities or past continuities, take their place.

November 18, 2014: Six Flags Unveils "Justice League: Battle for Metropolis 4D" RidePrint

Justice League: Battle for Metropolis Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world's largest regional theme park company, through a partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment - unveils a behind-the-scenes look at new components of the 4D interactive dark ride experience named JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS 4D. The thrilling new rides are headed to Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Over Texas in 2015.

"An enormous amount of detail and creativity has gone into producing what will be one of the most exciting and immersive dark rides experiences in the industry," said Tom Iven, senior vice president of U.S. park operations for Six Flags.

Guests will be part of the action as they fight alongside SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN, THE FLASH and the rest of the JUSTICE LEAGUE team, to stop Lex Luthor and The Joker from their diabolical plan to take control of Metropolis. Aided by the cybernetic Super Hero known as CYBORG, guests will be recruited to join the JUSTICE LEAGUE reserve team and trained to use high-tech laser blasters in preparation for anything the Super-Villains have in store for them. Traveling in six-passenger vehicles, riders take to the streets and take aim against The Joker, Lex Luthor, and his relentless robot army, in the thrilling BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS!

The multi-degrees-of-freedom motion-based ride vehicles were created by Oceaneering and are equipped with six interactive laser blasters per vehicle to help guests find the JUSTICE LEAGUE and free them from their captors. Complete with 4D effects of simulating fire, cannon blasts, and explosions, JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS is the ultimate dark ride adventure.

"By incorporating the dynamic ride system created by Oceaneering, along with the massive 3D screens, interactive game play, and highly detailed scenery by Sally Corp., we can achieve the next generation of interactive thrills," said John Wood, CEO of Sally Corporation, the industry leader in dark rides and creator of the lifelike animatronic Super Heroes.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS will feature custom-designed, state-of-the-art animatronics. The Joker's lifelike movements and menacing cackle will haunt riders as he sits atop his chaos-creating cannon spreading mayhem throughout the streets of Metropolis. The four-minute journey incorporates a wide array of special effects including five huge interactive 3D screens, incredible hi-definition animation and a dramatic musical score.

Six Flags is still keeping broader details about the ride experience under wraps, but Iven said park guests can look forward to a completely new experience with JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS as it is "the very first motion-based, interactive dark ride in North America."
