Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #14

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #14

Released Digitally: July 8, 2014

"Resistance"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Art: Mike S. Miller & Tom Derenick
Cover: Jheremy Raapack

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

    An easily unentertaining issue. The build-up of the battle with the Green Lantern Corp fizzled magnificently, and the Guardians have taken themselves out of the picture... which is pretty much like the Guardians. They could end Regime Superman's run any time they wanted to, but that would mercifully end this insipid storyline. Injustice Year Two has no focus whatsoever. The idea should to show the growing encroachment of Regime Superman's rule, but it's bogged down with boilerplate conventions and superhero tropes that just don't mesh well with the world that's been established (and that is said with extreme generosity) here. Superheroes in a realistic setting and amidst the political, social, and iconoclastic themes that Injustice attempts to espouse requires careful planning for the story to be of true worth. However, does the story need to be of any true worth? Furthermore, does the story need to make sense at all? The premise of Injustice is implausible through its execution, yet it doesn't seem to matter to the readers that consume it weekly.

July 26, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Hall H 2014 ReportPrint

Hall H Hall H starts with the moderator, The Nerdist's Chris Hardwick, welcoming everyone into Hall H. After a brief hello, it was time for the screen to get bigger. The curtains on the side of the room pull back to reveal two enormous screens that now surround half of Hall H.

Warner Bros. has brought these enormous screens to Comic-Con the past three years, in order to give us an ultra-cinematic experience that dwarfs even the biggest movie theaters.

Everyone cheers as the music builds to a climax, fully revealing these enormous screens.

Chris Hardwick then says that we're not done, and the music starts again and the curtains pull back EVEN MORE, to reveal what are the largest screens ever placed in Hall H. In my 20 years of visiting Comic-Con, and my many times in Hall H, I have never seen anything like it. The screens take up the entire walls of Hall H, giving you a 180 degree view.

They waste no time in beginning the panel. The lights go out, the music plays, and it begins.

Hall H (Disclaimer: The following descriptions of the footage will be described as best as I can remember it. Everything happened so quickly, I didn't get enough time to document anything, I'm doing this straight from what I remember, sitting in Hall H).

A quick glimpse of Superman appears in the front screen. He pops up again on another screen with a different pose. The music keeps building. We then see an image of Superman punching Doomsday with an uppercut. Then glimpses of Batman appear. The screens go black. Superman is shown on the furthest side of the left screen, with Batman on the furthest right. They approach each other at the center front screen, with the final glimpse of them facing each other. It ends with the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice title card.

Zach Snyder comes out. He's met with great enthusiasm. He says he brought a few friends with him. Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck come out. People cheer. Then Gal Gadot walks out and joins them.

Hall H Snyder says they have only been shooting for two months now, there really isn't anything to show us yet. But, he was able to put together a tiny teaser, just for the San Diego Comic-Con. The room goes black, and we get to see the FIRST footage ever filmed of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Thunder strikes. A dark night in Gotham City. The camera pans down over the roof of the building. We see Batman. He is wearing very heavy battle armor. Very similar to Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" version. The eyes of the cowl are lit up, his eyes glow bright like lanterns. He uncovers the Bat Signal. The emblem on the Bat Signal is the same one from Dark Knight Returns. He turns on the signal, shining it into the sky. It's pointed directly at Henry Cavill's SUPERMAN. He is floating, staring back at Batman, and he does NOT look happy. His eyes start to glow red. It looks like he aims his heat vision at the Bat Signal, but it's not clear if that happens because that's where the footage ends, and the title card for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is displayed.

Hall H The crowd cheers unlike anything you have ever heard before. Snyder thanks everyone, and they show the footage again.

The whole short experience could not have lasted more than 10 minutes.

The crowd roared. People were in tears. The feeling is indescribable. This is my 20th year attending the San Diego Comic-Con, and it just keeps getting better. I predict that one year from now, there will be enough footage of "Batman v Superman" that we'll get to see scenes from the actual film. I will do my best to be inside Hall H in 2015.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman #33

Scheduled to arrive in stores: July 23, 2014

Cover date: September 2014

"The Men of Tomorrow" - Chapter Two: "The New Superman"

Writer: Geoff Johns
Penciller: John Romita Jr.
Inker: Klaus Janson
Covers: John Romita Jr., Klaus Janson & Laura Martin

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Superman outside of Action Comics and Batman/Superman has had one of the rockiest starts in the New 52, Clark quit his job, friends and career to become a blogger, Superman became a punching bag for cosmic threats... these were among some of the worst choices in direction to ever face the character. As much as I hate inflating a writer's ego, in two short issues, Geoff Johns has returned Clark to more familiar ground for older audiences and not made it too dull for the newer readers. Returning much of Clark & Superman's life, mythos and supporting cast has felt like a massive relief yet also a breath of fresh air.

July 24, 2014: The Day I Saved HALL H at the San Diego Comic-ConPrint

Comic-Con by Luis A. Jaime

"My son was there. He was in the bus. He saw what Clark did." - MAN OF STEEL (2013)

Of all the lines of dialogue in the film, MAN OF STEEL, this particular one stands out in my mind. It is a line that I will always associate with one of the most incredible days of my life - Saturday, July 14th, 2012.

Not only did I get to experience the first ever footage of MAN OF STEEL, but I also helped save almost 10,000 people in line for HALL H... and it almost killed me.

Two years ago, at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, everyone was eagerly anticipating the Warner Bros. panel inside HALL H. There was a pretty exciting line-up that year: Pacific Rim, The Hobbit and MAN OF STEEL were going to be featured.

My brother Ivan and I were going to be there that Saturday. The only way to make sure we get inside was to get in line early. Real early. We got in line at 2:00 a.m. that Saturday morning. We would have lined up earlier, but I needed to get some rest beforehand, because I had donated blood at Comic-Con Thursday morning. I only got two hours of sleep that night.

July 24, 2014: Holding KryptonitePrint

Holding Kryptonite Lauren Agostino and A.L. Newberg have authored a new book, Holding Kryptonite, telling the story of the creation of Superman, from the contentious $130 check all the way to the battles for the control of the character that continue to this day.

July 24, 2014: The Many (New) Faces of SupermanPrint

Action Comics #1 The topic of a new Newsarama.com article is sure to spark some discussion, detailing all the many current incarnations of Superman who donít seem very much like one another:

ďThere are Supermen in the future, and Supermen in other worlds. There's a Superman from TV, a couple Supermen with darker skin, a bunch of evil versions of Superman, and a Mecha Superman who's more like a Transformer than a Kryptonian.

ďAnd thatís just this summer.

ďSo is there something going on with Superman? Why is DC embracing so many versions of him all of the sudden?Ē

Good questions. What do you think?


July 24, 2014: Action Comics #1 Lands on eBayPrint

Action Comics #1 The Rolling Stone reports on a copy of Action Comics #1 going up for auction on eBay from August 14th to the 24th:

    "It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's . . . a very expensive eBay listing. The debut issue of Action Comics, which just also happens to be the first appearances of Superman and Lois Lane, is headed to auction. The issue originally came out in April 1938 and had a cover price of 10 cents but, as The New York Times reports, a copy sold for $2,161,000 in 2011. That copy allegedly once belonged to Nicolas Cage, who is said to have purchased it for $150,000 in 1997."

The bit about 1% of the proceeds going to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation is buried in the Rolling Stone article, but it features somewhat more prominently on this eBay infographic advertising the auction.


July 24, 2014: Snyder Tweets Dark Jedi Cavill Pic on TwitterPrint

Super Jedi Today "Batman v Superman" Director Zack Snyder posted a tweet with this photo of Henry Cavill as a Jedi knight and the hashtag #SuperJedi.

Obviously Snyder is having some fun with the black cloaks they make them wear to cover their costumes when performing somewhere where the public might see them.
