This four part crossover looks to be epic on many scales. One thing that I was personally looking forward to see was gay actor and SUPERMAN cutie, Russell Tovey play gay superhero, Raymond Terrell aka THE Ray. No full body shot yet, but we see him with his uniform and with and without his helmet. We also see him wearing Nazi concentration camp clothing with an upside down Pink Triangle. That is very powerful to see in a superhero tv show. Especially seeing a gay man, playing a gay character wearing it. In the Golden Age of Comic books, a lot of World War II was depicted with Nazis being beaten often, but concentration camps were generally not mentioned.
 

 

One thing to note about this crossover is that it will take place on an Earth that has been shown in animated format as being an Earth where Nazis won World War II. This could also be quite an emotional event for many people to watch as well. We will probably get to see some glimpses of the Nazi concentration camps as evidenced by Tovey’s character. So many forget that there were many minority groups that were sent to concentration camps in Europe, including many gay men. This is the origin of the Pink Triangle. It is scary to see Tovey wearing this but also very eye opening. Especially with what is being said by the survivors/escapees of the same type of camps currently in Chechnya.
 


The 4 Part Crossover event starts up on November 27 with Supergirl and then Arrow the directly afterwards. The next two parts conclude on Tuesday, November 28 with The Flash and directly followed by the Legends of Tomorrow. I will be watching with a lot of anticipation.

Here are a couple of the pics that have been released. There are many more, but these are some of the ones that particularly enjoyed.

Have you ever wondered how Tim Drake and Conner Kent first met up? Their first team up didn’t exactly go smoothly, but it paved the way for a future bromance that is legendary within the superhero cosmos. Here’s my thoughts on DC Comic’s – World’s Finest 3.

Is that Wonder Woman and Superman’s alternate reality son being shown on DC Comic’s August solicitations? I don’t know, but damn! That’s badass! I’m sure this is just a one story thing, but I have learned that many alternate reality characters can do a lot and reappear if enough fans want to see it. And doesn’t he look a lot like Conner Kent? Justice League has been boring me a bit lately, but I’m picking this up.

The synopsis reads:

Written by BRYAN HITCH • Art by FERNANDO PASARIN and OCLAIR ALBERT • Cover by BRYAN HITCH • Variant cover by NICK BRADSHAW
“LEGACY” part one! A group of heroes from a post-apocalyptic future escape into the past to stop their world from coming to be. But to do it they’re going to need the help of the Justice League—who just happen to be these time travelers’ parents!

The New 52 animated universe is not my particular favorite animated universe. But the Judas Contract is not quite as bad as I thought it would be. I was pleasantly entertained and enjoyed this movie. Maybe it was because Damian wasn’t the central figure this time around. Regardless, I do recommend watching this. It is not the best of the DC Animated movies, but it was by far not the worst either.

It’s comic book day! This week we have Wonder Woman #17 – Princess Diana is still insane and being helped in a hospital while Cheetah is reverted back to her former state.
Action Comics #974 – Who is the fake Clark Kent? We start to explore who exactly this faker really is.
Batman Beyond #5 – The return of Bruce Wayne and one of his most dangerous enemies of all time!
Flash #17 – Barry takes on Captain Cold and most of the Rogues in this story finale.
Thanks #4 – Thano’s son Thane recruits several heroes/villains to try and take down his daddy, Thanos himself.
Inhumans vs. X-Men #5 – The build up for a massive battle is set and the teams are about to fight each other to the death, with both of their species at stake.
Hulk #3 – Jennifer Walters is still coming to grips with the death of her cousin Bruce Banner. She is the Hulk now.
Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp #15 – Saint Walker is back and Guy is about to get into a huge fight with a Sinestro Corp member.
And Justice League America #1 – Batman and his Justice League lite take on a new alien threat. Great opening issue following their Rebirth!


Mumm-Ra and Skeletor have enslaved the ancient spirits of evil and have them attacking Eternia. Without He-Man and Lion-O, who are traveling back from Third Earth, it is up to the combined forces of the Thundercats and the Masters of the Universe to stop them. This is a fun issue with lots of action and battles taking place. It is worth it just to see Jaga and the Sorceress working together. Unfortunately there’s only one more issue left, but potentially capable of continuing on.

The Button – A Crossover event with Batman and the Flash. They finally start to look into why the Comedian’s bloody smilie face button is in the Batcave. The issues will be Batman and The Flash ongoing series #21 & 22 of each. You would think that Batman would have tried to figure this out immediately, but DC wants to slowly let this story unravel. DC Comics has stated that the overall Rebirth storyline itself this will be unraveled over the course of the next two years with several crossover events. This one looks to be the first of those miniseries.


The story synopsis reads:“The two greatest detectives in the DC Universe unite to unravel the mystery behind a certain blood stained smiley face button stuck in the Batcave wall. However, what begins as a simple investigation soon turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party – and it’s not who anyone suspects! This is a mystery woven throughout time, and the countdown starts here!”


If you are like me, you have been wondering what the hell is going on in the DC Universe with respects to Watchmen connection. The Watchmen have always had their own unique universe that never really crossed over in the main DC comic book line. It was originally a mini series explaining a world devoid of compassion and had it’s superheroes set up as cruel vigilantes. The movie adaptation was very close to the original material.


The Rebirth story last year set up DC Comics to have a surge in readership and brought many fans back to reading its comics. The reason was that prior to this event, many characters had been written in much more darker tones after the universe rebooted in the New 52 storyline. Relationships were taken away, history was erased and more importantly, many heroes stopped acting like shining bright heroes and became more dark.


Rebirth set up seeds that someone else may have altered the universe’s history and taken away 10 years out of their continuity. The culprit that everyone is pointing towards is Dr. Manhattan. In the Watchmen universe he does have the power of a god and can do almost anything. He was last seen in Watchmen saying that he may “create some” life in another galaxy. In Titans Abra Kadabra has the word ‘Manhattan’ in his head as to why he is attacking the Titans in an effort to get Wally back into the speed force. Owlman gains access to the Mobius chair from Metron and accesses the secrets of the universe, and he is vaporized with a flash of blue light by an unknown entity, similar to how Rorschach was killed.


It should also be noted that a man by the name of Mr. Oz is kidnapping certain characters in different eras for a unique purpose of his own. Including Doomsday and possibly two versions of Tim Drake, aka Red Robin. Many are speculating that Mr. Oz is Ozymandias from the Watchmen.


It will be a long two years. I was hoping that Tim Drake would have a bigger development within the overall storyline, and writer James Tynion IV promised that he would play a key part of the story. However he is being sidelined temporary with a couple cameo appearances. Maybe he will play a part in this story. Hopefully. The Button will be written by Tom King and drawn by Jason Fabok in Batman. The Flash writer will be Joshua Williamson and artist Howard Porter.

Geoff Johns, president and Chief creative officer of DC Comics himself will be writing most of the Rebirth overall storyline.

Apollo was killed by Mawzir and taken to hell by Neron. That’s bad for hell, because Midnighter fights his way to his boyfriend’s side. It’s a bloody battle, but he does his thing and gets there! Badass 4th issue and I am loving Steve Orlando’s writing.

Salaak – Keeper of the book of Oa. This toy figure is brought to you by Mr. Bear. Thank you Mr. Bear! This is a bit of an oldie figure as he’s a bit tougher to find without paying too much of an inflated price. He’s a great addition to my Green Lantern family and I do enjoy having a new figure to add to my Corps!
