"Battlefield of Love"

Writer: Peter Tomasi
Penciller: Doug Mahnke
Inker: Jaime Medoza

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    Judging this issue as not only the start of a new storyline but the start of a new writer on the book I enjoyed this issue on a number of levels. The opening scene was a great way to establish not only how Tomasi sees Superman and Wonder Woman but also to show how far the characters have progressed since their first meeting. Wonder Woman is shown as a calculating warrior who doesn't understand the new world she is living in. Superman is shown as someone that genuinely cares for people and feels anguish when he fails to save them. I liked that quite a bit and it gave the next scene more emotional weight.

Cover: Neil Gouge with Rex Lokus

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Again, Regime Superman shows more resiliency and fortitude than his New 52 namesake. New 52 Superman is wondering whether or not the world needs him, while Regime has taken over the world. Regime takes the life of anyone who gets in his way, New 52 Superman cannot save anyone without simultaneously losing. Regime struggles against magical and mystical forces with success; New 52 Superman struggles to type a personal response. It's so very interesting how liberating being evil is. No doubts, no self-conscious ruminating, no hesitation in acting. That Regime will eventually lose in a battle with IGAS-Superman seems more and more hard to swallow, particularly since the Superman being offered to readers is nowhere near Regime in decisive action and confidence. New 52 Superman watches animals being killed and people being shot around him, while Regime is making things happen. Unfortunately, it's all for the wrong reasons.

November 24, 2014: Shining a Spotlight on Gaslight Lex LuthorPrint

Infinite Crisis Gaslight Lex Luthor has been an important character in the digital-first comic book series "Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse". DC Comics chats with writer Dan Abnett and editor Jim Chadwick to find out what it is about this version of Lex Luthor that makes him so dangerous. Here's part of the interview...

    Jim, you mentioned that Gaslight Lex Luthor is one of your favorite characters in Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse. Why is that?

    JC: First, there's his speech pattern. Dan's done a terrific job of setting him squarely in the Victorian-based Gaslight world and this sets him apart from any other incarnation of Luthor we've ever seen, creating a wholly unique character. I also like his ambiguity. Is he a good guy or a bad guy? We still don't know. He's very unctuous in how he addresses all the other characters, but you get the impression that this might be him feigning being humble. There have been enough glimpses that he's really a bit of a badass, in spite of his deferential manner. He fights these universe-threatening menaces right alongside the super powered characters, using only his intellect and his steampunk technology and he never flinches.

    How does Gaslight Lex Luthor differ from the DC Universe version of the character?

    DA: Less obviously ruthless or cruel, and less pompous, I think, or as spiteful. But absolutely not to be underestimated. You do not want to get in his way.

    So if he were to come up against the regular DC Universe version of Lex Luthor, who do you think would have the upper hand?

    JC: Tough one. DC Universe Luthor seems genuinely more ruthless. But I also think he might underestimate his Gaslight world counterpart, which would be a serious mistake and might give our Luthor the upper hand.

"Superman's Joker"

Writer: Greg Pak
Penciller: Adrian Syaf
Inker: Adrian Syaf
Cover: Adrian Syaf, Danny Miki and Wil Quintana

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    'Superman's Joker' is a great start for a new story arc. It's a story that has not been told before. Superman villains are usually criminals who are out for power or money. Superman, himself, is not usually the target. Oh, sometimes bad-actors want to test him, or see if they can outsmart or out-power the big guy. But this villain wants to wrench out Superman's emotional guts. Killing that poor actor at the Children's Hospital is an action that might rival the Joker, himself. After all, this phantom devil wanted that man to die in front of seriously ill children. And he wanted him to die wearing a Superman outfit.

    That's just pure evil.

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    After Tony Bedard's amazing run, it's kind of too early to tell what direction K. Perkins and Mike Johnson will go in this new story arc. I would have liked to have seen just a little more of Kara on Earth before she was taken to be tested, but otherwise, we have a fine start to what seems to be a relatively good tale. I particularly enjoyed the scenes with Clark and Kara. Little nuggets like that are just a few of the things that make this title so enjoyable to read.

November 21, 2014: Francis Lawrence on Superman/Batman Logo in "I Am Legend"Print

Superman/Batman Long-time Superman fans will recall that a billboard featuring a Superman/Batman logo appeared in the 2007 film "I Am Legend" starring Will Smith. Some fans may know that Akiva Goldsman, who wrote and produced the film, was once hired to write an early draft of a Superman/Batman movie around the same time.

Francis Lawrence, who directed "I Am Legend" and is currently promoting "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1", gave Collider.com further insight into the Superman/Batman advertisement's appearance.

    "The reason that it was there is that the producer and writer of I Am Legend, Akiva Goldsman, actually wrote an early, early [draft of Batman v Superman]," the director said. He added that, if his memory served, Christopher Nolan initially was going to make Troy and Wolfgang Peterson was supposed to do Batman/Superman.

    "We thought, 'Hey, what movies would it be fun to have up on the screen when the plague hit?'" Lawrence recalled, adding that he recently saw Goldsman, who revealed the studio never gave them clearance to use the combined logo (watch the full interview below).

    Although Lawrence doesn't remember where the logo came from, it appears to be based on the one from DC Comics' Superman/Batman series, which debuted in 2003.

The Superman/Batman discussion begins about 2:10 into the video.
