January 2, 2015: Fourth Man Dies From Superman Ecstasy DrugPrint

Ecstasy Pills Police in the UK are investigating a fourth death in Telford, which appears to be linked to a dangerous batch of ecstasy fashioned into the shape of a Superman "S" Shield.

    A 27-year-old father-of-three, who has yet to be formally identified, was found by his girlfriend at a property in Woodside Road in Ketley, on New Year's Day.

    West Mercia Police said they believed his death could be the result of taking the drug, which is described as red with the Superman "S" logo.

The same type of ecstasy pills embossed with the Superman "S" shield, with a street value of around €1.2 million (approx. US$1.4 million), were seized by officers from Ireland's Revenue's Customs Service and the Garda National Drugs Unit in mid December.

The drugs are still thought to be in circulation and people are being strongly warned against taking them.

January 1, 2015: WizKids Announces DC Comics Dice MastersPrint

Dice Masters WizKids has announced the upcoming release of "DC Comics Dice Masters: Justice League".

    The greatest heroes and villains of the DC Comics universe will come alive in the Dice Masters arena this spring with WizKids Games' inaugural DC Comics Dice Masters release - Justice League!

    As many comic fans know, the Justice League handles threats too enormous and terrifying for any lone hero. The team is much greater than the sum of its parts, as incredible as they are. This spring, the premier release of DC Comics Dice Masters from WizKids Games will bring the most awesome DC Comics heroes and villains to another gaming platform! Whether you decide to embrace the power and teamwork of the Justice League, or the evil plots of the Legion of Doom, there is a lot of excitement to uncover!

    This first release of DC Comics Dice Masters brings the heroes and villains that shape the DC Universe to the forefront of Dice Masters. Fan-favorite heroes of the Justice League such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg, The Flash, and Green Lantern show up in multiple versions, each keyed to a different strategy and playstyle. Some are designed to work well with each other, while others function a little more independently. In addition to the Justice League, the Justice Society of America also makes an appearance - Stargirl, Red Tornado, Hawkman, and Green Arrow won't disappoint new or old Dice Masters fans!

    For players interested in the darker side of DC Comics Dice Masters, prepare yourself to plot alongside the Legion of Doom! For the first time ever, a team of villains gets their own unique representation in Dice Masters. They'll need to work together if they hope to defeat the Justice League! Black Manta, Braniac, and Lex Luthor are just some of the characters ready to cause trouble for the "Big Seven."

    And even though we've mentioned the Justice League and the Legion of Doom, there are some characters that a DC Comics premier release wouldn't be complete without! Of course we're talking about Batman's sidekick, Robin! With the dynamic duo present, it's only to be expected that The Joker and Harley Quinn are also looking to cause some mischief for Dice Masters players.

    DC Comics Dice Masters: Justice League will be available via both a two-player starter set and a gravity feed that includes 90 foil packs. As with previous releases, each foil pack will include two dice and their corresponding cards, allowing players to easily enhance their Dice Masters collection, all for the low price of $0.99 per pack!
