Some battles are fought with weapons and super powers, others are fought with art supplies.
Eisner Award nominated artist Joëlle Jones has been tapped to take over the popular DC Collectibles Cover Girls statue line. Announced today during the DC Collectibles panel at WonderCon, the fan-favorite artist for SUPERGIRL: BEING SUPER and LADY KILLER will give fans and collectors her unique take on iconic DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains. Jones will first take on mischievous vixen Harley Quinn, with Supergirl, Batgirl, and Mera statues slated to follow in 2018.
If you think that Batgirl and Supergirl go together about as well as their counterparts Superman and Batman, well, you’d be correct. Kryptonians and Bats are a match made in super hero heaven. But what you may not have known is, unlike their predecessors, Kara Zor-El and Barbara Gordon haven’t actually had many opportunities to get to work with one another on the page.
...At least, maybe not in the ways you might expect.
It’s time to break down the strange, unexpected and altogether animated history of the other World’s Finest duo.
With the musical crossover still fresh in my head, it's hard not to think about what songs would fit certain scenes in the latest Supergirl. "Distant Sun" featured a number of schmoopy moments that could have been punctuated by any number of pop love songs. Heck, a power ballad wouldn't have been out of place when Mon-El thought he was leaving Supergirl behind forever. But with Music Meister gone, no one burst into song (wouldn't it have been a fun, temporary side effect?) as Mon-El faced his parents and the DEO was put into a tricky position.
The Flash has decided to take advantage of some of its ties back to Glee. Both Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist were regular cast members on the musical drama. Add to that Jesse L. Martin and Carlos Valdes’ extensive musical backgrounds and it only seemed logical that Music Meister (another Glee alum, here played by Darren Criss), should bleed over onto Earth-1 and wreak some havoc.
If you find yourself breaking into song more than usual this week, don’t worry. It’s not some bizarre affliction you should turn to Dr. Google to look into—it’s musical crossover time! Supergirl is crossing over with The Flash because Music Meister (played by Darren Criss) has come to town and put Barry and Kara under his spell. Since the super friends are joining forces, it seemed only right that fellow #DCTV Couch Club writer Ashley Victoria Robinson and I team-up to discuss what happens when our heroes get stuck in a musical.
You might think you've encountered maestros of villainy before, but no one conducts a sinister symphony like the Music Meister. The callous crooner is set to appear in The Flash and Supergirl musical crossover, so it's a pitch perfect time to learn all about the rogue. And I promise I'll (mostly) stop with the alliteration, and I won't torture you by attempting to pen a ballad about the Music Meister's past.
