Superman goes super-berserk in the opening sequence of the DC Comics-centric video game "Injustice: Gods Among Us. " After learning the Joker has tricked him into murdering a pregnant Lois Lane and setting off a bomb that's destroyed the entire city of Metropolis, he's out for vengeance. As Batman tries to stop him, Superman punches through Joker's chest and kills him - setting off a civil war between the two superheores and the rest of the DC universe. "It's a scene that lets you know that this is not a normal story and it's kind of our take of this universe,"...

If you only went by the type of comic-books he wrote, you would think that Brian Azzarello was a brooding soul, a tortured artist who was tormented by a traumatic past. But when you speak with the writer of dark titles like “100 Bullets” and “Hellblazer”, he sure doesn't come across that way. Ask him about the challenges of writing characters like The Watchmen 's Rorshach or Wonder Woman , and Azzarello is thoughtful and easy to crack wise. It's not until you bring up the topic of his favorite baseball team - the Chicago Cubs -...

With the popularity of superheroes ever on the rise, it's no surprise that Halloween would be one of the most popular times of the year to dress as one. I mean, outside of a comic convention, you're hardly ever going to find grown-ups dressed as Superman or Lara Croft most other days. Well, now you can dress as a character from the classic 1960's Batman television series, that wonderfully campy show starring Adam West and Burt Ward . Rubies Costume Co. is producing these rather nifty get-ups (see gallery above)

Jada Pinkett Smith is breaking bad. The "HawthoRNe" actress has been cast as gangster boss Fish Mooney in the upcoming Fox drama "Gotham.

Television press release says. "Imposing and hotheaded, she's not one to be crossed. " Based upon characters published by DC Comics, the one-hour drama charts the origins of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.

This week has been a tough one for me, both as a fan of comics & science fiction AND as a professional writer. See, for the last few days, comic book readers have been debating DC Comics ' hiring of Orson Scott Card to write a Superman story for their Digital First initiative. Card is best known for writing “ Ender's Game ” the Hugo Award winning science fiction novel and one of my all-time favorite books. So what's the problem, you ask? Well, it just so happens that Orson Scott Card is ...

While the big announcement at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) was about Superman and Batman finally meeting in the modern live-action era, the question that followed was "when are we getting a Justice League movie?" And while some may think that getting the JLA together on the big screen is a daunting task, the folks over at DC Entertainment's animated movie department have been doing it rather effortlessly. Their latest effort comes in the feature-length "Justice League: The Flash Paradox" which brings all of the DCU's...

When it was announced about a week ago that DC Comics was "re-creating" Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern , as a gay character , the news was met with mixed reactions. Of course you had those who decried it, those who applauded it, and those who - like me and indie comic creator Brian Andersen - thought the news would be bigger. Knowing that he is one of the coolest and most outspoken creators out there, I asked Brian to offer his two cents on Alan Scott and what it means to him as a gay man, and what it could mean GLBT comic...

While most of my friends party at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) I find myself at home dealing with the “Not at SDCC Blues.”  To cope, I've been following my peeps on Twitter, checking out the different video feeds online, and indulging in some geeky home entertainment. Take, for instance, the ROBOT CHICKEN DC COMICS SPECIAL which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray this month. Created by the folks who gave us the excellent STAR WARS specials, the DC COMICS SPECIAL lampoons the characters of the DCU in the way that only Seth Green and his merry...

If you ask me, the days of "nerds versus jocks" are long gone. These days it's very hard to make a distinction between the two factions, because the line that seperates them has blurred to the point of being non-existent. Consider this: two prominent Chicago Bears players, Lance Briggs and Israel Odonijea have produced their own comic books. The current GMs of the Bears and Chicago Cubs are admitted "stat nerds", using sabermetrics and the like to help them make decisions on what players to draft and sign.
