June 29, 2016: LEGO Mighty Micros Introduces Doomsday FigurePrint

LEGO Mighty Micros

Doomsday will make his LEGO debut in a new series of LEGO Mighty Micros set to be unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con next month.

The new LEGO Mighty Micros include: Batman vs. Killer Moth, Wonder Woman vs. Doomsday, and Superman vs. Bizarro.

Batman flies with his Batcopter to face off Killer Moth's vehicle while Wonder Woman, with a sword and shield, pilots her invisible jet against Doomsday's car. Superman's car comes with fists that he can bump against Bizarro's fists on the latter's back-to-front automobile. Batman is in his '66 version while the other heroes are also in classic incarnations, not forms from the recent films.

Why Doomsday needs a car is anyone's guess... Never-the-less, these DC Comics LEGO Mighty Micros will go on sale to the general public in January 2017, and will retail for around $9.99 each.

June 29, 2016: J.K. Simmons Didn't Pack on Muscle for "Justice League" RolePrint

JK Simmons Earlier this month photos of J.K. Simmons appeared online, showing the 61 year old actor working out at a Gold's Gym looking impressively "jacked" with bulging muscles. Many assumed that Simmons was getting into shape for his role as Commissioner Gordon for the upcoming "Justice League" movie. However the actor has revealed in a new interview with the UK's Business Insider, that that's not the case at all...

"This is all coincidental," Simmons, who's doing press for the Blu-ray release of "Kung Fu Panda 3," in which he voices the villain, Kai, told Business Insider. "After the second and final time that I got hugely fat in my life and when I lost that weight six or seven years ago, I pretty much decided that I was going to stay in decent shape for the rest of my life."

The photos were actually taken at the end of April. He has since shaved the beard, which was for his role in the movie his wife wrote and directed, "I'm Not Here," before "Justice League."

Simmons said that his Jim Gordon will look very much like the other versions of the character we've seen.

"I'm not going to mess with something that iconic," he said.

"Justice League" is scheduled for release on November 17, 2017.

"Path of Doom" - Part 2

Writer: Dan Jurgens
Penciller: Patrick Zircher
Inker: Patrick Zircher

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

One of the things I like about Dan Jurgens as a creator is that he puts a lot of thought into the situations he puts his characters in. It would be really easy to just throw Doomsday and Superman at each other but we got more than that. We see Lex trying to step up and play the hero and getting smacked down for his efforts. We see Superman using his head against Doomsday and putting his past experiences to good use. A good friend of mine constantly jokes that Superman should solve all of his problems by throwing whatever that problem is into the sun so I have to admit to chuckling when Superman thinks of doing exactly that with Doomsday. I don't know if Superman flying Doomsday into space in this book was inspired by a similar scene in BATMAN V SUPERMAN but I liked it just the same.

Tickets to the event will be distributed on a "first come, first served" basis, and fans will be notified via email promptly.

In LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Gotham City Breakout, Batgirl and Nightwing take Batman on a trip down memory lane - literally - to visit one of the key mentors from his formative years - leaving the Justice League to keep Gotham City crime-free. But neither situation proves to be a "vacation" as the Bat trio encounters old nemeses on their adventure, and the Justice League discovers just how busy Batman is on a regular basis. It's a brick-tastic battle on two fronts as Batman, Batgirl and Nightwing take on Bane and Deathstroke, while the Justice League - with some help from a few Teen Titans - fends off an assault by Joker and many of Batman's infamous adversaries to ensure Gotham City's safety.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and the LEGO Group, LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Gotham City Breakout will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on June 21 via Digital HD, and July 12, 2016 on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. The Blu-ray and DVD releases will include an exclusive Nightwing LEGO® figurine, while supplies last.

"Gods of Justice" - Chapter One: "Crime Pays"

Writer: Dan Abnett

Cover: Paul Pelletier, Tony Kordos and Adriano Lucas

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

There is such a contrast here with this tale, and another Batman and Robin story making the rounds: "The Last Crusade". In Justice League, Robin is not only an asset, but the future. In TLC (Ha!), Robin is a liability and a plot catalyst. DC Comics was the home of the child superhero, until DC decided that "DC Comics Aren't Just For Kids!" applied so much realism that they took child endangerment seriously for their fictional creations, and had a 900-number allowing Robin to be killed. This installment shows the viable nature of not just the hero with meta-class powers, but also the child hero as well, if shown the same respect. Examine Cyborg's interaction with Robin. He doesn't condescend or ignore Robin, but explains that if Batman brought him, then Robin, as a hero, must have value. Robin is given a chance to fulfill that worth with his training and intellect, and that is reinforced by the Batman's last words on the matter. Had this story actually happened five years ago, DC Comics would be a better place. Better late than never, I supposed.

The first slow installment after a steady roll-out. We spent enough time with Supergirl searching for answers. She now needs to find them or not, but the problem of Facet needs to be solved and quickly. Henshaw's refusal to open classified files also seems foolish, particularly if they're opened to reveal nothing deadly or dangerous, but merely a complication for the characters' social interaction. Contrary to popular belief, high frequencies don't and shouldn't bother characters with super-hearing. If that was the case, they'd need isolation, as the frequencies that are apparent every day would be enough to stagger them. Furthermore, Martian Manhunter has super-hearing as well. He looked just fine dealing with it.
