Mild Mannered Reviews - Action Comics #49

Scheduled to arrive in stores: February 3, 2016

Cover date: April 2016

"Savage Dawn: Immortal Combat"

Writer: Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder
Penciller: Aaron Kuder and Ardian Syaf
Inker: Jonathan Glapion, Scott Hanna and Sandra Hope

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    The story begins with a skinny kid getting all 'roided out and Clark discovering that an overdose of Kryptonite radiation has altered his body chemistry.

    Sounds like Pak misses writing the Hulk.

    That was a joke. It wasn't a complaint. I loved Pak's run with the Hulk.

    Anyway...

    I enjoyed this issue. It was more like the Greg Pak ACTION COMICS I had come to know and love instead of angry, powered down Superman being angry and powered down. Superman looked genuinely happy to have his powers back despite the fact that they are killing him. There was a nobility about the character that has been missing for the last six months. Yes, he was willing to sacrifice himself before but seeing him power through despite the pain and then trying to talk the Conan kid down did my heart a lot of good.

"Batman"

Writer: Christos Gage
Penciller: Joe Bennett
Inker: Sean Parsons
Cover: Sean Parsons, Joe Bennett and HiFi

Reviewed by: Stephen W. Wright

    From the first panel this story has me. Right away we see Gotham, with the text "It all needs to burn." I'm in. What I want in my comic book stories is simple. Make me want to turn the page and not look at Twitter or Facebook. And, if the story makes me so invested that I don't hear my daughter Avery ask me for the 100th time for a snack then it's really aces in my book. Seriously, how many snacks can one 6 year old eat in one day? But, she's a Superman/Supergirl nut so I give in every time. Anyway, this story accomplishes both goals. It moves briskly from page one until the last page. It introduces us to a little more obscure Batman villain in Firefly, but manages to make the character cool in the few panels he/she is in.

February 8, 2016: Win Flights to Metropolis and Gotham with Turkish AirlinesPrint

Metropolis Map With the release of their Metropolis and Gotham TV commercials, Turkish Airlines has launched City Guides for both cities on their website, with a chance to win seats on inaugural flights to Metropolis and Gotham.

The City Guide page for Metropolis includes a city map and the following information:

    Overview

    Metropolis is famous for its forward-looking, optimistic spirit, captured in its nickname 'City of Tomorrow'. With wide avenues lined with gleaming skyscrapers, and an entrepreneurial spirit that derives from its long-standing tech industry, it has an infectious energy that inspires visitors. While neighboring Gotham City can seem insular, Metropolis welcomes you with open arms.

    Turkish Airlines Metropolis TV Commercial The city, of course, is still emerging from the devastation of the recent Kryptonian attack, but Metropolis has made great strides thanks to hard work and corporate investment.

    Tourist Attractions

    The grass of Heroes Park has healed the urban scars left by the Kryptonian attack, and a flurry of new construction - crowned by the gleaming spire of LexCorp Tower - is reshaping downtown. The most memorable icons of the city still stand proudly, including Hammersmith Tower and the Daily Planet Building, while Metropolis' numerous museums and its Avenue of Tomorrow tech showcase are evidence that intelligence can win out over violence.

    Turkish Airlines Metropolis TV Commercial Culture and Entertainment

    From impressionistic watercolors to Russian ballet, the fine arts are in fine form in Metropolis. You can experience high culture in concentrated form by visiting the arts district, which spills across three West Side blocks and surrounds the venerable Schaffenberger gallery. Many theaters and music halls did not survive the infrastructure damage of the gravity-wave attack, and in some cases reconstruction is still years away. To fill the void, mobile theater companies such as the Greico Theater Workshop and Awakenings Youth Theater are giving voice to the city's newfound optimism. There are plenty of places to get a taste of this communal energy, particularly in a city famous for its music scene, where seemingly every bar has an open microphone. Nova and similar velvet-rope dance clubs helped shape the city's glitzy pop-culture history. Catch headliner acts at larger venues such as Shuster Arena or Siegel Music Hall, or get close to the stage in the intimate performance spaces scattered throughout Hob's Bay and along the periphery of the Met U campus.

    Turkish Airlines Metropolis TV Commercial Food and Drink

    They say the sun always shines in Metropolis, and the city's wealth of outdoor cafés seems to support the claim. In warm weather, even the four-star restaurants will offer sidewalk seating, the perfect spot for people-watching - or for catching a telltale streak of blue and red zipping across the sky at supersonic speed. The busy environs of the rebuilt Midtown offer quick-service diners, where you might bump elbows with media moguls on their lunch break. Upscale steakhouses dominate the Harbor waterfront, where the pricier menus come with a breathtaking view of the bay and the distant lights of Gotham City.

    Turkish Airlines Metropolis TV Commercial Shopping

    Metropolis rivals Tokyo as a global capital for consumer electronics, and the city's longstanding reputation as a tech hub has recently received a quantum boost thanks to LexCorp's investment in 'innovation campuses'. The LexCorp store on Tesla Avenue proudly displays advances that are years away from hitting the American heartland - you can often spot a local by the unidentifiable beeping rectangle tucked discreetly into a shirt pocket. That forward-thinking attitude extends to clothing styles too, with a Fashion District that has received an injection of fresh energy from designers inspired by deco lines and bright colors.

The contest closes March 9, 2016 and is open to fans all around the world.

February 8, 2016: "Legion of Super Heroes - Season Two" Released DigitallyPrint

Legion of Super Heroes While the first season of the "Legion of Super Heroes" animated series has been available on DVD and digital format for quite a while now, Warner Home Video has only now just released the second season... and only as a digital download.

    One thousand years from now, Superman, the legendary Man of Steel, will inspire a group of emerging super heroes from the 31st century to band together to defend the rights of all free worlds and uphold the laws of the newly formed United Planets. That is, if they don't kill each other first. Legion of Super Heroes stars a young Superman and combines humor with high-stakes, grand-scale super heroics to create the ultimate sci-fi, super hero, wish-fulfillment fantasy for kids of all ages. Each episode pits Superman and the Legion against otherworldly threats and adversaries who challenge the team on both super heroic and emotional levels, engaging the audience in the characters' interpersonal dramas as much as their intergalactic ones.

The complete second season consists of 13 episode, concluding with Part 2 of the "Dark Victory" story, which originally aired on April 4, 2008.

Download the complete second season of "Legion of Super Heroes" now through iTunes or the Superman Homepage Online Store.

Thanks to Kevin Gunn for the lead on this info.
