When you start digging around the history of the DC Universe, you're bound to find some...well, let's call them weird little anomalies. Characters with pasts that overlap and loop back in on themselves, stories that get wiped from existence and then brought back—it's all part and parcel with the whole superhero thing, after all, and the DCU is always changing. But perhaps one of the most famous (or, depending on who you talk to, infamous) of those anomalies lies squarely on the shoulders of one Carter Hall aka Hawkman. If you're looking for weirdness, look no further.
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s face-melting, nightmare-raising, multiverse-shattering DARK NIGHTS: METAL is now available everywhere in a hardcover deluxe collected edition. We’ve been talking a lot about the story, and for good reason. It united heroes (and villains) across the DC Universe, introduced some frightening new baddies, launched an entirely new line of books and changed the face of the multiverse permanently. But if you haven’t yet read it, don’t worry.
We’re in for a Thrilla in Themiscyra as we pit our two most powerful princesses against each other in this week’s “Versus Live!” Both Wonder Woman and Starfire have warrior training, both can fly, both have super strength and speed, so will Diana call upon the Greek gods to lasso up a win? Or will Kori starbolt her way to a decisive victory? Collider Heroes’ Markeia McCarty makes the case for Wonder Woman, while Screen Junkies’ Ed Greer stands behind Starfire. But it will be up to you to decide which of these heroes reign supreme.
Chances are, if you've been poking around the DC Universe lately you've probably stumbled across the name Barbatos. He's been a pretty big-ticket item lately (you know, in like...a horrifying sort of way), with a nice big boost in prominence thanks to the epic events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL. But the truth is he's actually far from a newcomer to the DCU.
It's week three of four for JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE, meaning that there is only one issue remaining for the event and before a whole new era of Justice League begins in earnest…and man, you guys. If you thought last week was a rough time for our heroes, this week is…well…
I mean, let's just say Amanda Waller was ready to call in a full-on nuclear strike on the Fortress of Solitude and that should put things in perspective here.
Welcome to week two of four in JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE, where things are going from bad to worse on a cosmic scale—though, really, that's probably not that much of a surprise, right? After all, we are living in a post-shattered Source Wall world. I'd venture a guess that things getting a little dicey is probably to be expected.
