DC Universe: Early Impressions

DC Universe

First off, the movies. The movie selection is fairly small -- the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, the first two Christopher Nolan Batman movies, several of the animated films. Part of the issue here may be one of availability -- I have no idea who currently has the streaming rights to, for example, the two Swamp Thing Burton/Schumacher ...
 

The Superhero Watch: X-Men Movies United (Part 2)

In the beginning, there were Stan and Jack, and yea, they begat the children of the atom. And yea, it was good, And as always seems to happen with good things, eventually they made some movies out of them. In part one of this two-part installment of The Superhero Watch, we looked at the six movies (so far) that make up the main X-Men movie franchise. Today, in part two, we're looking at the three solo Wolverine films, the two adventures of Deadpool, and we glance ahead at the future of the 20th Century Fox X-Men universe once it moves over to its new overlords at the Walt Disney Global Media Consolidation Phalanx and Tiki Bar. And don't forget to read the previous installments focusing on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Spider-Man franchise, and the Superman filmsLetterboxd list just for that purpose.

The Wolverine Trilogy: X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), The Wolverine (2013), Logan (2017)....

    The Man of Steel (2018) #1: A New Era Begins

    The Man of Steel (2018) #1 (DC Comics)
    By Brian Michael Bendis, Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Jay Fabok, Alex Sinclair, Cory Petit, Jessica Chen, Michael Cotton, Brian Cunningham)

    Well, some 6 weeks after Action Comics #1000, and four weeks after DC Nation #0, we finally have a new, actual Superman comic. And in many ways, THE new Superman comic. (Sure, there was the Action Comics Special and the Superman Special...but as those seem to have been granted as ways to wrap up the individual runs of the prior creative teams without messing up the numbering for how DC wanted to start Bendis' stuff, those don't exactly count for me.) So...some weeks later, here we are...with the first issue proper of "The Bendis Era" on Superman.

    First off, there's the cover. It's a bit generic to me--not a bad visual, and I believe this is part of a multi-part image that'll span the 6 issues of this weekly mini. I have a bit of a problem with it, though, as it shows Superman...

    By Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson, Francis Manapul, Hi-Fi, and AndWorld Design

    In the aftermath of Dark Nights: Metal

    On the surface, there are a lot of things about No Justice #1 you could be cynical about. The four teams Brainiac has assembled seem in some ways tailor-made to capitalize on characters that are in the zeitgeist right now, and outfitting each of the squads in color-coded uniforms could be taken as a plot to crank out a new...

    Memories on the World of Magic: The Gathering

    Revised ("3rd") Edition. I'd missed Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Legends, and The DarkFallen Empires.

    I was there for the arrival of 4th Edition, and the first new expansion I was there for was Ice Age. Shortly after, we got Chronicles, and I remember that the card I most wanted from that set was Chromium--the Elder Dragon. (Which I got in my first purchase of several boosters!) Those gave way to Homelands, which was the first/only set I ever got to get an entire booster box--I remember getting that as a Christmas present that year.

    I remember the release of Alliances, and MirageVisions and then even WeatherlightAlliances, and I think only a "starter deck" and a couple boosters of Mirage. (After...

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 20 - The One Who Will Save Us All
    Directed by Cherie Gierhart, Written by Brent Fletcher

    One of the best things about this show is how in any given episode, a bunch of things can be resolved, but you always come back to the original problem staring you right in the face. Despite all of the plot movement, when this episode closed, we are still left with the team struggling to break the time loop and stop whoever The Destroyer of WorldsGeneral Talbot...
