    Superman’s journey back to the big screen, following the initially thrilling Christopher Reeve movies– which flamed out with the embarrassing last two movies in the series– has been a rocky one, littered with false starts, followed by a disappointing take starring Brandon Routh, which failed to reignite the franchise.  Finally came Zack Snyder’s ‘Man of […]

    Now that Warner Brothers has found its Wonder Woman in the form of Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot, most famous for appearing in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, I suppose the question is what role the character will play.  Traditionally, Superman has been romantically linked with Lois Lane and Lana Lang, but DC decided to mix […]

Sorry true believers, but my faith in this series is starting to wane as the great mystery keeps being teased without letting us know. I’ll give […]

    Posted Saturday, December 7th, 2013 09:00 pm GMT -4

    This might be the first issue in months where ‘X-Men Legacy’ wasn’t my favorite book of the month. Don’t worry, though, fellow fans of Xavier’s Legacy – the series was still my second favorite. Even with the return of the art, it couldn’t top my favorite this week. Honestly it’s only fallen to second place because of […]
