Superman Returns- The Prequels: The Donner Movie Adaptation We Never Had

I’ll confess I’ve never been that big a fan of comic book movie adaptations. It always seemed kind of redundant to turn a movie based on a comic... back into a comic? And usually they’re an afterthought not really done by A-listers, anyway. For every Batman movie adaptation by Denny O’Neil, Jerry Ordway and José …

Doomsday Clock: Superboy or Not? – A Few Thoughts

**Hey everyone! FYI this article contains MAJOR spoilers for Doomsday Clock! Enjoy!** Geoff Johns can do no wrong. His Green Lantern run is one of my top 2-3 favorite runs by any writer all time.

Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman- A Few Thoughts

 One of the greatest qualities of Marvel’s on-again, off-again series “What If?” is that it explored places that a monthly comic couldn’t or wouldn’t normally go.

I can’t even begin to tell you how exilerating it was as a fan to catch all the cameos on CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.  Actually, that’s pretty stupid to say. I probably don’t even need to!   Whether it be John Wesley Shipp’s Barry Allen or Burt Ward’s Robin, Kevin Conroy, Robert Wuhl, …

Superman Inspiration: Gladiator by Philip Wylie

  It’s no secret that the Man of Steel is a conglomeration of several characters and elements of science fiction. Jerry Siegel drew from many sources throughout his life and as a sci-fi fan, and there were many: books, films, pulps, the Old Testament, the list goes on. Edgar Rice Burroughs’ famous hero of Balsoom, John …

Krypton Season 2- A Few Thoughts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIwMvuwvOhI I’ll confess I was going to write a review of Krypton season 2 right after the season (series?) finale aired a few weeks ago. But WB and SyFy Channel decided to throw me a curveball the very next day and outright cancel the show, as everyone is probably aware by now. Cameron Welsh, the …
