Made of special nylon fabric, used for its stretch and ability to retain its original shape. Without being stretched, tunic measures 18" across the chest and 29" long. A few small holes, otherwise in near fine condition. With Prop Store COA.

November 20, 2015: Creators Talk About "LEGO - Justice League: Cosmic Clash"Print

LEGO DC Super Heroes Producer Brandon Vietti, director Rick Morales and screenwriter Jim Krieg sat down for a chat with ComicBookResources.com during New York Comic Con recently, where they spoke about the upcoming animated movie and what fans can expect.

    On whether there's pressure to appeal to younger fans' sensibilities while still keeping in mind the broad audience the DC characters have:

    Krieg: Fortunately we all have an 8 year-old's sensibility. [Laughter] We all like the action stuff too, but this lets you do something different and stretch your leg in a different direction. You know, I think the bad part is the action fans, they're the ones who post a lot, you hear about it online. Whereas if you are 8, you spend less time on message boards [Laughter] because of the spelling issues.

"LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Cosmic Clash" comes to Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD in early 2016.

November 20, 2015: Cleveland Approves Plans for Superman StatuePrint

Model of Proposed Superman Statue for Cleveland As most Superman fans know, the character was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, two friends living in Cleveland, Ohio in the 1930s. Now, Cleveland's Downtown/Flats Design Review Committee has unanimously approved the proposal for a larger-than-life statue of a flying Superman near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum as part of the elevated walkway that will connect downtown Cleveland to the lakefront.

    "The enthusiasm has been incredible," said Howard, "Hutch" Stoller of Lyndhurst, the retired publicist who conceived the project and recruited Deming to create the design.

    The proposal will be reviewed Friday by the city's Planning Commission, whose approval is necessary for the project to go ahead. The design committee advises the commission.

    [Lakewood artist David] Deming's concept calls for a 36-foot-high monument consisting of a stainless steel sculpture of the "Man of Steel" mounted atop a tapering pylon.

    The pylon and sculpture would be set within a circular, 2,300-square-foot plaza embraced by the curving pedestrian ramp at the north end of the lakefront pedestrian bridge designed to connect the city's downtown Mall to lakefront attractions at North Coast Harbor.

The monument, which could cost upwards of $3 million, is expected to be privately funded.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

DEAD AGAIN continues!

Mike and Jeff close out cover date December 1994 with parts seven and eight of Dead Again. First up is Adventures of Superman #518 where Superman travels to Apokolips and there is a lot of fighting. Then in Action Comics #705 an at the end of his rope Man of Steel believes he has found the man or rather imp from the fifth dimension responsible for the supposedly real but probably fake dead body that has been causing Superman so much grief. Following this the boys look at both Steel #10 and Metropolis: SCU #2, which they have some serious mixed feelings on. After discussing what else was going on in the DCU that month Mike and Jeff dive into two more episodes of the second season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman; Church of Metropolis, which introduces Intergang to the series and Operation: Blackout, which has a friend of Lois pop back up with hilarity supposedly ensuing.

Next Time: Dead Again continues in Superman: The Man of Steel #40 and Superman #96. The boys will also briefly discuss Superboy #11 and Guardians of Metropolis #3.

November 18, 2015: "Supergirl" Episode Review - S01E05 "Livewire"Print

Supergirl 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 fifth episode in which Kara's Thanksgiving may be ruined when she suspects her foster mother, Dr. Danvers (Helen Slater), who is coming to town, disapproves of her new role as a superhero. Also, when an accident transforms a volatile CatCo employee into the villainous Livewire, she targets Cat and Supergirl.

    Supergirl continues in her stride, in yet another entertaining episode, with features from Superman family members Dean Cain and Helen Slater to complete the package. The opening sequence displays some pretty impressive wire-work, and returns the show to its premise: the location and apprehension of dangerous aliens... which is about as compelling as a melted cone. The physical resemblance between Leigh and Benoist is palpable in this installment, which adds to the theme of family/mother-daughter dynamics aimed for. Livewire goes for the jugular even before becoming super-powered, with the skewering line: "puncture the chastity belt of steel". It's a fun romp, that's balanced with surprisingly weighty issues as well, specifically the tenets of Free Speech without decency, and empowerment absent criticism. The biggest missteps are due to the episode being out of sequence, and outright theft from Smallville and Superman: The Animated Series. It's the former that really has my focus for this review.

November 18, 2015: How "Man of Steel" Traumatised Mark MillarPrint

Huck #1 In an essay published at GamesRadar.com, writer Mark Millar describes how the ending of the "Man of Steel" movie was the catalist that turned him away from superhero violence and inspired him to write his new comic book series, "Huck".

    Now let me preface this by saying that I'm an enormous fan of everyone involved in this movie from the director to the writer to Cavill himself, who I think is a terrific and enormously likeable Superman. I'll also say that I've been there in the front row from X-Men's bleak Auschwitz opening, to Willem Dafoe being crucified against a wall in Spider-Man, to Ang Lee's introspective Hulk, to Batman officially stopping smiling EVER circa 2004. I'm all for it. After decades of campiness and often journeymen directors I fell to my knees and praised the level of talent we suddenly saw attached to these characters I'd loved my entire life. We had legitimisation! We were finally being taken seriously! But Summer 2013 as I sat there on Father's Day and saw Superman beating the bad guy by twisting his neck so hard he broke it and murdered him I really wondered if we'd come to the end of that particular road.

    Now I got the logic of that scene and it absolutely made sense within the context of the movie as the villain had taken down half of Metropolis and killed hundreds of thousands of people. But even so. This was Superman. This was like seeing Sylvester the Cat finally getting his hands on Speedy Gonzales. Elmer Fudd blowing away Bugs Bunny. I loved Superman as a kid not because of his edginess or his potential for a fatal solution, but because he could do anything he wanted and still chose to be nice. This was always the moral of a superhero comic to me.

He goes on to discuss how comic books have been on an every darkening trend since the early 1970s, but wants everyone to remember that superheroes were created to "lift our spirits in the darkest times".

    When things are tough we maybe need a nice, uncomplicated hero a little more and so, like I said, I'm trying this once just to see what happens. As a reader I'm desperate for it. As a writer, it's been a sheer joy. But both myself and artist Rafael Albuquerque have created something we haven't seen in a very long time with our new book and that's a lovely, sweet, Jimmy Stewart/Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg kinda good guy. It's out this week and we called this thing HUCK.

You can read Mark Millar's complete essay at GamesRadar.com.

"Huck #1" is on sale now. You can also read it on iBooks.
