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...
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."
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.
Amongst the issues listed is a VF 8.0 copy of "Action Comics #194" from 1954 featuring a cover by Al Plastino of Superman battling Clark Kent.
The Sunday Internet Comics Auction will end on April 24, 2016. Visit HeritageAuctions.com for the complete list of 26 issues of "Action Comics" up for auction.
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.
The second season of "DC Super Hero Girls" online animated shorts will begin tomorrow, April 21, when the first episode of the new season introduces Supergirl to DC Super Hero High.
GeekDad.com has an exclusive clip from the first episode of Season 2, titled "New Beginnings", in which Wonder Woman is tasked with the job of trying to convince Supergirl to enroll at Super Hero High...
GeekDad.com also caught up with Anais Fairweather, who supplied the voice for Supergirl...
"Supergirl, for me, is just so relatable," says Anais, "She's just getting her footing and coming in to her powers and really needs the support of those around her. She's so much more powerful than she thinks she is and her friends help her see that.".
Titled "Better Angels", this episode aired on CBS in the USA on Monday, April 18 at 8.00pm ET/PT.
"Better Angels" - 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, on the first season finale of SUPERGIRL, Monday, April 18 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
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.
As the winner, and in response to fan requests, the guys at Screen Junkies put together an Honest Trailer for "Superman Returns":
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.
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.
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.
