April 8, 2014: Our April Fools Day Pranks - Poll ResultsPrint

Poll Position In the latest Superman Homepage Member Poll we asked the question:

Did you get caught out by our April Fools Day news pranks?

We've been doing these for a few years now, so it's no surprise that a lot of you came to the site on April 1st expecting us to post fake news reports. Still, it's good to see we fooled a few people.

In Australia we have a tradition that you can't fool people after midday on April 1st. Seems that's not the case in other parts of the world, so pulling down the fake news items halfway through the day meant a lot of you didn't see them in time. Maybe we'll need to adjust that next year. ;)

Here's the complete breakdown:

    The only problem I had with this final chapter is how rushed it felt. Everything built to this confrontation and while it was epic in scope it just flew by too fast. Moments I had been looking forward to, like He-Man and Superman finally teaming up, came and went without much fanfare.

    Other than that this was a fun wrap up to a fun series. While the He-Man/Superman scenes felt rushed they were still entertaining. The action was split between Justice League Dark and Skeletor facing off against the mind controlled heroes of Earth, which made for some fun moments. The real action happened with He-Man and Superman fighting Orko and while I would have liked to have seen more of it the moment where He-Man gives the sword over to Superman made me smile.

Reviewed by: Matt Schorr

    So John Stewart's had the ring ten years? And in all that time, he's never turned up once on anyone's radar? He obviously spends quite a bit of time on earth, otherwise he'd never be able to hold down a job as a detective. Are we to assume that he takes the occasional leave of absence to tackle intergalactic threats like a Paralax-Possessed-Hal? And those leave of absences manage to occur at the same time earth is faced with something like a Zod-Possessed-Lex, Rabid-Zombie-Plagues, and a fire-spouting planet colliding with earth?

    But hey, enough is enough. I'm letting it be. I stand by my position on this, but I'm just going to move forward and ignore that little hiccup in the story. (It's actually a big hiccup, but let's be nice.)

    One step forward, and by that, it really is one step. The confrontation between Brutaal and Val goes as it should, which is actually heartening, but let's save that for later on. The meat of the story takes place on the last page, an absolutely confounding act, as it works as a cliffhanger, but reveals how absent and empty the rest of the story is. Green Lantern's return is flat and questionable, as one must wonder if the Earth will bestow more might this time than last, and the asides between the characters are time and panel killers, as glacial move towards the inevitable crossover continues. Characters such as Hawkgirl, Jimmy Olsen, even Val, are all but wasted, as they serve no purpose other than filling up the panels and word bubbles. There's a lot of potential in the characters of Earth 2, but that potential won't be fulfilled until Brutaal, the Batman, etc. are no longer the major players of the game.

April 7, 2014: Greg Pak Discusses "Action Comics"Print

Action Comics #30 Comicosity.com spoke with writer Greg Pak to discuss the current story playing out in "Action Comics". Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Harrow's accusation toward Superman - that he is unable to make the hard, permanent decisions - plays into a lot of fan discussion over the past year about the ethics of a Superman that kills. What are your thoughts on that divide?

    GP: I think it's a great question to always be asking. I will always be pushing Superman harder and harder in these stories. The stakes will always get higher, and I think that's one of the great eternal questions for heroic characters like this.

    In real life, someone with Superman's powers, who has taken on this kind of responsibility, has its closest analogue in the President of the United States, in terms of someone whose every decision can have an impact on thousands or millions of people. And every president we've ever had, through his actions or orders, caused people to be killed. That's just a fact.

    If you're going to step up to this level of power, you're going to deal with these life and death situations, and no matter what you choose, people are going to die. And so, in real life, that's how these things work. It's horrifying to me to even imagine having to be in that situation.

    In the comics world, with Superman, I think it's an interesting challenge to push on him. Whether or not he can or should go all the way - that's a good question, and we'll continue to explore that!

April 7, 2014: Captain America to Officially Face-Off Against Superman/BatmanPrint

Superman/Batman Movie Disney and Marvel have officially announced that the third film in the "Captain America" franchise will be released on May 6, 2016 - The same release date as the untitled Superman/Batman movie.

    The move comes three months after Warner Bros. had announced it would release its Superman-Batman movie on May 6, 2016 - moving it back from July 17, 2015 - meaning that Superman-Batman would square off against a Marvel film which Marvel had not yet announced.

    At the time, Warners said the decision was made to "help fully realize the vision."

    Speculation had emerged since then that the third "Captain America" would be the Disney-Marvel title on the date.
