Superman 23.3, Batman Superman 3.1

It is no secret that I hate that DC Comics relaunched with the “New 52” with little regard to fans or the characters. I get wanting to do something new and big to attract a new audience, and it has been successful in that right. But there was a way they could have done it by taking their time and bringing out ongoing series to natural conclusions, instead of just ending everything abruptly with the “Flashpoint” crossover. Sure, some titles like Batman and Green Lantern kept going like nothing had changed, but character like Superman who were altered greatly did not have a satisfying end. And that is a shame. </rant>

That being said, DC Comics has actually been doing some interesting stuff, including this month’s “Forever Evil” and “Villains Month”, where every title has been taken over by a villain, showing us their place in the New 52, or like for Doomsday above, shedding new light on his 52 Origin. H’el is one of the few new Superman villains in recent years to catch my attention. A Krypton villain who is powerful and ruthless- like ow Zod used to be. I just might be intrigued enough to pick up these two titles. Maybe. We’ll see.

Superman #23.3
Official Description: After his last battle with Superman, H’el wakes up on Krypton years before it is destroyed! Can H’el manipulate the Science Counsel, soldiers and countless others including Jor-El, to save the planet? And what does it mean for the birth of Superman if he succeeds?

Batman/Superman #3.1
Official Description: Long before Superman fought the unstoppable monster known as Doomsday, the beast’s reputation for death and destruction haunted The Man of Steel’s home world of Krypton.

Superman #23.3 hit stores last week while Batman/Superman #3.1 comes out on Wednesday September 25th, 2013. Both from DC Comics. Superman is written by Scott Lobdell with art by  Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund. Batman/Superman is written by Greg Pak with art by Brett Booth.

Have you been following the New 52? What has stood out? What would you change?

This is a little tricky for me. I haven’t picked up a DC Comics series in a while, you see, they burned me out with too many crossovers and absolutely no reason in the madness (asides making me poor and letting me down). I needed a break from them… but than I see this logo: “Reign of Doomsday”.

Outsiders issue #37 is actually part two of DC Comic’s latest crossover event, “Reign of Doomsday”. Yeah, the monster that killed Superman and destroyed much of Metropolis is back and ready to beat down the heroes of the DC Comics Universe. The storyline began in the first issue of the new Steel series, which I will be going out to get this week so I can figure out what the heck is happening. Here is the official description of the new Outsiders issue:

In Markovia, the Eradicator struggles in battle against the murder-machine known as Doomsday! It’s a fight to the death with the lives of Geo-Force, Katana, the Looker, Halo and the Olympian all hanging in the balance! Meanwhile, under arrest by the U.S. government, Black Lightning and his Outsiders team find their backs against the wall as they’re forced to choose between a lifetime of imprisonment or leading an invasion of their former home base in Markovia!

The issue hits stands next Wednesday, March 9th, 2011. It is written by Dan DiDio and contains art from Keith Giffen and Mick Gray.

Hey everyone! Things have been a bit bumpy over the past few weeks. We’ve been taking on a lot of guest posts to fill the days. Thankfully we’ve had Lucian’s ongoing wrestling recaps that I hope you have all been enjoying. We’ll be posting Raw’s recap later today. He has been doing a great job following all of wrestling entertainment. Now, it is time for a new Pit!

  • A new cartoon based on Tron is coming to Disney XD! The series bridges the gap between the original film and Tron: Legacy. It has a damn impressive cast that includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen, and Bruce Boxleitner. It is being overseen by Tron: Legacy writer and Lost writer/producer Adam Horowitz. Word is that they are taking a very serious approach to the material and it will not be goofy or kiddie. I have yet to see Tron: Legacy, but after the holidays I’m planning a double feature of both flicks.
  • I’m not sure how I got through a whole Tron news tidbit without mentioning Jeff Bridges, but I guess I did. Anyhow, I had the pleasure of sitting down to watch Bridges step into a role originally played by John Wayne and I have to say that I was damn impressed. The Coen Brother’s True Grit is easily my favorite film of the year and I hope it gets some respect come Oscar time. If you are a fan of westerns, or hell, a fan of good movies in general, go see it when it comes out.
  • DC Comics has released a pretty cool teaser image for March’s Justice League of America #55 and the “Reign of Doomsday”. You can check it out here. I can’t wait to see DC Comic’s big guns take on the monster that killed Superman all those years ago.
  • Interested in making movies? How about casting your favorite stars in them? And releasing them into virtual theaters where they can become box office blockbusters? Well, you can do such that in Hollywood the Game. The Internet’s longest running Hollywood Simulation and Community Game.
  • PJ over at 141tv posted a very cool video he found online that spotlights all of the films released in 2010. You can check it out here, it is a pretty damn awesome video. Big props go out to the editor, G-Whiz Productions.
