Gorilla Grodd

Through millions of years of adaptation and change, human beings evolved to become the dominant species on the planet Earth. But for the super-villain known as Grodd, the world shouldn't belong to the humans. It belongs to the apes. 

Hailing from the technologically advanced Gorilla City, home to hyper-intelligent primates living in their own secret, secluded society, Grodd stood apart from his fellow simians through his telepathic and telekinetic powers. Believing that his city’s benevolence was keeping the gorillas from achieving what was rightly theirs, Grodd overthrew the leader of Gorilla City and took his place—a first step in his ultimate goal of taking over the rest of the world and establishing apes as the ruling species on the planet. It was the intervention of the Flash that ultimately stopped the villain's scheme, and forever placed the two as bitter rivals.

Grodd has a brutal nature and a level of enhanced strength that make him incredibility dangerous in a physical fight. This is presuming you're even able to get close enough to him to throw a punch as his powerful telepathic abilities give him a distinct advantage over most of his enemies. Along with his strength and aggression, Grodd is also highly intelligent and a master statistician. It is this perfect combination of brain, brawn and savagery that cements Grodd's conviction of his place at the top of the evolutionary scale. And anyone who challenges his claim, will find themselves learning the true meaning of survival of the fittest.

Together

Together. 

That was always the appeal.

All of them. Fighting. Together. 

Do I love Superman? You bet.
And Batman? Even more. 
And Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Red Tornado, Atom, and...and...and...
YesYesYesYesYes.
And more yes. 

And now, here we are—on the day that I dreamed about all those decades ago: the new Justice League movie is about to open. It is not just the culmination of geek dreams. It also marks the start of them. At least for me.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Nothing Says "Halloween" Like the '80s

Alright, we've got a lot to get through this week, Legends fans, but before we can do anything, we have to acknowledge the most important thing to happen this week.

How cute was baby Ray?!?!

Oh my god. We've run into child versions of the team before, of course, but this one? This one. What a precious little nerd with great taste in classic movies.

...And listen, if I'm being totally honest here, baby Gumball was pretty cute too, in a horror movie kind of way.

Supergirl: The Cult of Supergirl

When Supergirl first debuted only three short years ago, it was a massive deal. To have the Girl of Steel be the debut female-led live action show under the #DCTV umbrella sounded across the zeitgeist in a way that heralded not only how remarkable a character Kara Zor-El is, but how much her type of story was needed in our mass-media marketplace. A couple short years later, Wonder Woman echoed this impact cinematically. In a lot of ways, Supergirl’s status as an icon rose to a new level with the debut of her television show.
