Boring, sleepy study halls can be brutal. In fact, if you don't have enough work to occupy you, study halls can be enough to stop your school day dead in its tracks and make time slow down to a painful crawl.

This year’s Comic-Con is now behind us, and while those of us who were there rest our weary legs and get caught up on some much-needed sleep, DC fans the world over are buzzing with excitement over the amazing news and announcements that broke over the weekend.

The stories of Supergirl and Superman are rooted in the heroes being thrust onto a new world and finding their way.
