Since the launch of Rebirth in 2016, Patrick Gleason and Peter J. Tomasi have reinvigorated the Man of Steel through a series of powerful standalone stories in the pages of SUPERMAN. They’ve featured Lex Luthor, Eradicator, Apokolips and Mister Oz, among many others, but not Bizarro. Not until today’s SUPERMAN #42.
Welcome to Victorian Eng—wait, I mean, Victorian Gotham. Sure, it may not be quite as famous as its European cousin, but I think you'll find that the turn of the century DC Universe has all sorts of strange and wonderful things to offer in the just released Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, which just so happens to be the animated adaptation of an Elseworlds story by the same name.
It was a final page that Green Arrow fans won’t soon forget. Ferociously battling against the Ninth Circle, Malcom Merlyn, and his own mother, Oliver Queen was saved by his sister as she leapt in front of the arrow that had been fired directly at him. It was the most personal blow struck against Ollie yet in his ongoing battle with the powerful forces that have destroyed his life and city.
Hey, metalheads! It's me, Whitney Moore, and things are really heating up (like the fiery depths of Hades) over in DARK NIGHTS: METAL! Barbatos is back and in issue #4, none other than Carter Hall was revealed to be his newest pet, and Hawkgirl underwent some major changes as she stepped out as the new Lady Blackhawk!
Welcome to Relationship Roundup! In this new monthly column, I'm going to be walking you through the past and present of some of the DC Universe's most important relationships—from romances to bromances and everything in between.
Batman’s recently renewed romance with Catwoman began on a rooftop…but is it possible it might end on one as well?
Well, that wasn’t what we expected.
The cover of this week’s BATMAN #38 promises to reveal “the origin of Bruce Wayne,” which we had to admit, had us scratching our heads. We know the origin of Batman, but Bruce Wayne? Were we going to see his birth? We’re not sure that particular story is one that needs to be told.
The Justice League is great, but there is a whole slew of characters in the DC Universe outside of our good friends Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash and Green Lantern. There’s literally an encyclopedia full of hundreds of them. They range in size, shape and importance.
Harrison Wells was a character who should only have lasted for a single season on The Flash. He should have not been seen again at the premiere of season two like so many single-season villains before him. The reveal of his identity at the midway point of season one was interesting stuff that would have cemented him as one of the better—if not the best—bad guys Barry Allen has ever gone up against. I want to state unequivocally that I am thrilled a version of S.T.A.R. Labs’ original founder has stuck around since the pilot episode.
