    It seems that the DC super heroes’ deadliest enemy isn’t Darkseid, Lex Luthor or The Joker.  It’s that darned public perception.  For decades now, rival publisher Marvel has been seen as the “cool” imprint with its angsty, troubled characters like Spider-Man and the X-Men, while the DC heroes can’t seem to shake the image of […]

Marvel has already touched upon these possibilities in their movies.  ‘The Avengers’ assembled to […]
