Born on the doomed planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped at the same time as her cousin, Superman, but didn't arrive on Earth until years later after being lost in the Phantom Zone. Raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin. Years later, at age 24, and now living in National City while working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant, Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen, her bioengineer sister Alex, and the research of the super-secret, off-the-grid Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), who are tasked with keeping the Earth safe from aliens, Kara takes to the skies to protect her world. (TBC)

June 2, 2016: "Watchmen" Co-Creator Dave Gibbons Comments on "Batman v Superman"Print

Who Will Win? David Gibbons, co-creator of "Watchmen", spoke about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" when asked about the film at London's MCM Comic Con this past weekend, saying that he didn't agree with the choices Zack Snyder made for the film.

"I feel that what's happening now with the DC characters in film, to my mind, is going in the wrong direction. I feel that what DC has done, especially with 'Batman v Superman,' is they have really taken a misstep with it."

Gibbons then described his book "World's Finest," which was a Batman vs. Superman-type of story released by DC Comics in 1990. "What I honed in on, and this isn't the only take but it might have helped, is you've got Batman who's a dark, hidden creature who's antagonist is a brightly colored clown. You've got Superman who's a brightly colored figure, with an opponent who is a dark, scheming business man. There has to be a difference." In comparing his book to the new film, Gibbons said,"Where the latest film suffered is because they were both these dark, opaque, angsty creatures."

Gibbons had nothing but praise for Zack Snyder's work on "Watchmen", but obviously wasn't a fan of the director's work on "Batman v Superman".

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

You know it's bad when you're apathetic to the death of a major character within the story. Worse when you're actually pleased that the character is gone. Alfred has gone from being the friend, confidant, and surrogate father of The Batman, to a self-righteous hypocrite. There was a time when Alfred would have provided sound counsel to Batman or anyone else involved in a mess like this. Instead, he's been used, much as Commissioner Gordon was, as an ineffective counter to rise of Regime Superman, as he gives nothing but platitudes and the obligatory "badass" moments. Sure, he knocked out Regime Superman to save Bruce Wayne's life, but he never pressed Bruce Wayne his decision making or choices. A discussion with Bruce on why he's willing to work with criminals and murderers in order to stop Regime, or on the insurmountable nature of his battle against the Justice League never happened. There was never any wisdom from Alfred, and his death, unlike Commissioner Gordon's, serves no purpose other than to solidify the hold Regime has on Damian, and because he has to die anyway - it's in the video game.

May 31, 2016: Tomasi and Gleason Talk "Superman: Rebirth"Print

Superman Rebirth #1 ComicBookResources.com caught up with the creative team of writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Patrick Gleason to discuss this week's "Superman: Rebirth #1" and the "Superman" title moving forward, how the "Final Days of Superman" saga and "Rebirth" work together, and what it all means for comic book fans. Here's part of the interview...

Do "Superman: Rebirth" #1 and "Superman" continue to follow this storyline or does "DC Universe: Rebirth" allow us to move past multiple Supermen and multiple timelines like pre-Flashpoint and the New 52?

Tomasi: "Superman: Rebirth" #1 is very different than the other "Rebirth" issues because we had the pre-52 Superman and the New 52 Superman co-existing at the same time. "Superman: Rebirth" #1 is a real bridge. It's Pat's and my mission from the first issue to make sure that we understand who this pre-52 Superman is. What makes him tick? Who is he? What are his hopes and dreams? We want to make it so we can easily translate and transition to "Superman" #1 so that readers are right there with us. If readers followed the ["Final Days of Superman"] eight-parter, they will have gotten a lot from it but they can also come right in at "Rebirth" and boom, acclimate to everything right away because I feel that it's a very accessible issue that bridges right into the new series.

Gleason: We really wanted to make sure that anyone could pick up "Superman" #1 and read it. "Superman: Rebirth" is a bridge but in "Superman" #1, it will be very clear that this is Superman. There won't be many questions that it's him. There will be echoes of New 52 Superman and the world that Superman is now stepping into will remember him but it will be very clear that this is Superman.

Tomasi: The threads will dissipate slowly. We're not going to keep hammering home that stuff. We want there to be a sense that we are turning the page and beginning a new era with new adventures and new problems that the pre-52 Superman will obviously have different perspectives on as we move forward.

Gleason: He's going to have his hands full. There's a lot and we're going to hit the ground running. He's really going to have to step up to a lot right at the beginning. We won't be looking back. We'll be looking forward.
