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...
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.
Team-ups are one of the cornerstones of this medium that we all love. Whether that team-up happens between father and son, hero and sidekick or vigilante and villain, exploring these relationships can push open new doors of storytelling and adventures.

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.

Try not to get too emotional over this one. We don’t think Raven would approve.
During the DARK NIGHTS: METAL panel last weekend at New York Comic Con, in the midst of talking about The New Age of Heroes and the impact Metal is having on the DC Universe, the panelists announced a mysterious new Metal one-shot that will be hitting stands in February.
