April 21, 2016: New "DC Super Hero Girls" Episode - "New Beginnings"Print

DC Super Hero Girls Thanks to DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, in partnership with Mattel, girls now have their very own Super Hero world, DCSuperHeroGirls.com, where they can play, watch, read and be inspired to discover their full super power potential alongside legendary DC Comics female Super Heroes, including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, in this all-new universe that was created just for them.

The first episode of Season 2 of the "DC Super Hero Girls" animated shorts is now online:

"New Beginnings" - Wonder Woman is living her destiny! As the newly appointed School Ambassador, she's taking the lead to recruit Supergirl to Super Hero High - until a sneak attack from villainess Giganta catches her off guard.

DCComics.com published an interview with the voice behind Supergirl, Anais Fairweather. Here's part of that interview...

    "I think so much of the time we're seeing women on television being pinned against each other, and it's so wonderful to have this show for young women so that they can see other women supporting each other and building each other up. It's important," she says.

    Fairweather also sees the effect of the series firsthand in her personal life. "I have a niece who's four years old and she loves the show," she explains. "I'm so glad she finally has something that she can connect to. This is one of the first things like this, and it's so, so great for her. I see her running around the house pretending to be Supergirl with the cape on, and she's got her little arm ahead of her and she's flying through the dining room. It makes me feel emotional because I'm just so, so glad that we live in a world where this is happening and she gets to see this and want to embody these girls who are wonderful characters. Any possible chance to empower young women, that's genuinely my goal in life. It feels so good to be a part of this."

Read the complete interview at the DC Comics website.

New episodes debut bi-weekly on the DC Super Hero Girls website and their YouTube channel.

The DCSuperHeroGirls.com site features a pantheon of DC Comics characters that have been brought to life in a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, through immersive videos, games, quizzes, character photos, bios and more.

April 21, 2016: "Supergirl" Episode Review - S01E20 "Better Angels"Print

Season 1, Episode 20 'Better Angels' Superman Homepage reviewer T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao) reviews episodes from the new "Supergirl" TV series, airing on CBS.

Check out his review of the 20th and final episode of Season 1 in which Supergirl is forced to do battle with an unexpected foe and must risk everything - including her life - to prevent Non and Indigo from destroying every person on the planet.

    It's been a remarkable year for Supergirl; a show that could have been cancelled when its ratings started to drop or when its storylines became a patchwork quilt of good, bad, ugly, and other. Even this episode opened with coin toss, where either a viewer will rock with a fight between Alex and Kara, or check-out as this critic nearly did. Episode 2 showed a plausible fight between Kara and Alex, but after all of the training and growth she's shown, to be at Alex's mercy was unsatisfying, even if it allowed Helen Slater to channel her own Supergirl. Supergirl, however, always compels a viewer to hold on, stay put, and watch on, in the wise choice of lead, Melissa Benoist. Scant minutes after nearly hitting the remote, you're rewarded with what you came to see: Supergirl being super, and in a manner that few characters will dare to do these days. It's interesting that Superman, a symbol of hope, and the idea of hope, have been simultaneously deconstructed over the decades. Hope needs to meet a certain standard, or else be deemed cheesy, campy, schmaltzy, or hokey, which are all the definitions for emotions that we'd rather not deal with, the ones that make us embarrassed, weepy, or, God forbid, hopeful. Currently it's easier to kill a man, than show concern for him, but Supergirl defies that self-conscious standard, and her speech to the people of National City, which rouses them from their forced reverie, is proof positive of the show's commitment to an inspirational figure, despite what trends may insist upon.

April 20, 2016: Supergirl Joins Super Hero High in "DC Super Hero Girls" Season 2Print

Supergirl

April 20, 2016: Bleeding Superman Shield Returns for "Final Days of Superman"Print

Bleeding S Word is that DC Comics are set to use the bleeding "S" Shield on the cover of Superman comic books once again.

Newsarama.com claims that first run prints of "Superman #51", "Batman/Superman #31", "Action Comics #51" and "Superman/Wonder Woman #28" are sold out at the publisher level, and that DC Comics is planning to use the bleeding "S" shield as part of the designs for second printings of these books. Not only that, but the publisher is said to also be including S-shield chapter numbers on the recolored versions of these "Final Days of Superman" issues. These four second printings are scheduled for release May 11.

The bleeding "S" shield was first seen on 1992's "Superman #75" during the "Death of Superman" saga.

April 20, 2016: Superman and Supergirl Nearly Got Together in "Superman III"Print

Kiss Did you know that the original plan for "Superman III" was for a love triangle between Superman, Supergirl and Brainiac?

    The original villain was Brainiac (with Mister Mxyzptlk also involved), but the major thrust was the introduction of Supergirl into the film universe. She lands on a world controlled by Brainiac, who raises – and eventually falls in love with - her. Rejecting him, Supergirl escapes and ultimately ends up on Earth.

    Here's the really odd part: She eventually becomes a superhero on Earth, using her superpowers for good. Superman becomes curious about whether she's really a hero, and goes undercover as a villain to see what this Supergirl will do. She proves herself and then, as Salkind writes:

    "The look between the two will tell the audience that they have magically fallen in love. There is then conversation trying to find out if they are related. They are not. Then there is an idyllic sequence of Superman and Supergirl climbing up to 7th heaven. We shall have to find some beautiful place either on Earth or elsewhere (i.e. the Milky Way)."

    Brainiac tracks Supergirl to Earth, where he discovers that not only is she in love with Superman, but that Superman is in love with her.

April 20, 2016: Andrew Kreisberg Talks About "Supergirl" Season 2Print

Season Finale While CBS has yet to officially announce that "Supergirl" has been picked up for a second season, Entertainment Weekly caught up with the show's executive producer Andrew Kreisberg to talk about Monday night's Season 1 finale, what their plans are for season 2, and a whole lot more. Here's part of the interview, which does contain SPOILERS if you haven't yet seen the Season 1 finale...

    Let's start off with the reveal that someone else has landed on Earth. What can you tease of who this is? Are they friend or foe?

    Obviously it's our big cliffhanger of the season, so I'm not fully inclined to let everyone know who shot J.R. It's an important character, and they'll play an important role in season 2.

    Is this a character we may have seen in the comics before?

    Again, I don't want to give too much away, but it'll be cool. The fans are going to be excited. It's going to definitely shake things up for season 2.

    Especially with something like Project Cadmus in the ether, the first person I think of is Superboy.

    [Crickets.]

    Moving on, Kara was willing to risk her life for the world. How does that change her in season 2?

    This whole season has been about her embracing being Supergirl. In a way, this was her graduation episode. She hadn't fully figured out how to integrate being Supergirl into her life. This whole season has been a learning experience for her. At the end of this episode, she's fully Supergirl. Next season, you're going to see a Supergirl who is more mature, and a bit more of a cohesive character. She's taken the identity of Kara and the identity of Supergirl and merged them in a better way. You're just going to see a more confident, stronger Supergirl than we've ever seen before.

    Standard Injustice story. Death and destruction resulting from everyone and their dog being more dysfunctional than Dr. Jekyll. I suppose it doesn't matter that trained mercenaries, soldiers, etc., would be unlikely to react over such a trifle as an errant, empty hamburger container hitting them, or Bizarro having it in his dim mind that killing everyone is the best way to be rid of witnesses, but Injustice must maintain its kill count or lose relevance... or something.
