October 20, 2014: Sneak Peek at "LEGO Batman: Be-Leaguered" with SupermanPrint

LEGO Batman: Be-Leaguered DC Comics gives us a sneak peek at the upcoming one-shot animated Cartoon Network special titled "LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered", which will tie in to the upcoming "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham" video game.

    Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man-band. Just ask anyone; Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred... anyone. So, he is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new superhero team, the Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed... whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes!

"LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered" airs Monday, October 27 at 6:00pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network.

October 20, 2014: Flying Man Spotted by Plane Pilots and PassengersPrint

Superman and Plane You will believe a man can fly! Well, pilots and passengers on board an Airbus 320 plane from the UK certainly believe they saw a flying man.

    An Airbus 320 in the UK narrowly missed what passengers and crew say resembled a flying person, who appeared to be suspended in the air with no visible means of support.

    The flight was coming in to Manchester Airport when pilots spotted the man. They checked for reports of skydivers, parachuters or gliders in the area, and found none.

    According to a report from the body that investigates near-misses in UK aviation, the crew didn't get a long look at the "flying man".

    “They first sighted the object a few hundred metres in the 11 o'clock position 200 to 300ft above,” the report stated.

    "It passed down the left-hand side of the aircraft at 100 to 200m.

    The last couple of issues (I'm including the"Future's End" one-shot in that phrase) of this series felt like Tony Bedard was a bit off his game, but this one seems like the title has returned to its normal quality storytelling. It's hard to find anything wrong with this book from a writing standpoint. I loved everything about Bedard's tale from the team-up with Red Hood to the return of my favorite character, Michael. This issue had everything a comic fan like myself can sincerely enjoy. Bedard gives off the atmosphere that's a mixture of a buddy cop film from the 1980s and the best of such titles as the old World's Finest that showed the families of both the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel working together to fight crime. That's just some of the many reasons why Supergirl #35 is so entertaining.

    It's amazing that we've not seen the dynamic between Luthor and Superman, that we've see now between Lex and Bruce Wayne. Under Scott Lobdell there were the seeds of something new to their legendary contention, but it was quickly abandoned and rubbed out with another storyline and a few panels of plastic surgery. The oneupmanship between Lex and Bruce is petty and beneath the two of them. Two men of such vaunted intellect wouldn't waste time urinating for distance, and it's a waste of panels to indulge the sophomoric and trite expectations that men in contention need to behave in such a manner, particularly with so much on the line for Bruce. Lena Luthor in a wheel chair wasn't so much of a surprise, as seeing Lena Luthor at all. Lena is a Silver Age fixture that reoccurs every so often once the crisis gong has been sounded. It will be interesting to see how well she's used and just how long she remains this go around.

    I can't fault it... well I can - if I ask for more Clark, but honestly his actions, his leadership, his presence, plus the characterizations of his friends... it all adds up to pure Superman gold. In a way it's sad the show never got to make this arc happen... it would have been stunning, but just to see it unfold beyond the show is good enough. I wonder if this earth will be one folded into the DCU proper? It truly deserves to continue. Smallville is actually delivering more Superman action and drama than the current books. - Yes I said it.

    The Injustice set-up at this point is to give Regime an antagonist that ostensibly seems to be a credible threat, but come one. After all that's happened, does anyone really believe that Constantine can pose any true threat to Regime? If this was Superman, the paragon of virtue and morality, Constantine might have a shot. However, it's pretty clear that Regime is willing to do whatever he has to when it comes to his objective of world domination for no damn good reason. Next year, it will probably be Team Batman armed with red solar radiation weapons. Pathetic. The irony in all of this, is that the only one who can stop Regime, is that same sentimental and compassionate wimp from 2010. That is saying a lot. Regime is the Superman that so many have champed at the bit for, and while he's more than a match for whatever the Injustice world can throw at him, he's still a piker for what he used to be: a hero.

    If the Spectre is on the side of Regime Superman, this universe is really out of sorts. It would necessitate a change in the title from Injustice: Gods Among Us to Injustice: God is Us... and you lot are scat out of luck. Support in the form of the Spectre is a game over scenario, one way or the other. If he's on Regime's side, the events from Day of Vengeance are a clear reminder of what magic means to the Spectre. Nothing. If he's against Regime, DC Comics Presents #29 shows even more clearly that Superman can do anything... but not against the Spectre. There is a certain amount of confidence that one has to have in a writer to believe that he can pull off what needs to be done with this scenario, and this reviewer doesn't possess that sort of trust in Taylor. Year Two saw a dragged storyline where beings of immense power were beaten (Ganthet, Mogo) because of a stupidity that was induced by the plot that required them to be as moronic as they were.
