October 31, 2014: Supergirl TV Casting Call and Synopsis Details RevealedPrint

Supergirl Details have emerged for casting call information and synopsis outline for the live-action Supergirl TV series set to air on CBS next year.

    For Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers, the show is eyeing Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series' mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills for more than a decade, Kara is forced to bust out her super moves in public during an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.

    The other lead role currently being cast is that of 26-year-old Alexandra "Alex" Danvers, Kara's gorgeous, brilliant, science-minded foster sister. Growing up, Alex was partly jealous of her sibling yet also fascinated by her abilities, prompting Alex to learn as much as she could about alien anthropology, sociology and culture. Today, Alex works for a secret government organization and, alongside her heroic sis, will face many challenges, both mundane and super.

The pilot episode will be co-writen by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti, who will also serve as an executive producer for the live-action Supergirl TV series with Sarah Schechter.

Superman Homepage reporter Jeff Frost went down to both locations in Yorkville, Illinois where he saw that lighting equipment has been set up, while one crew member was raking up leaves into black garbage bags ahead of filming.

October 28, 2014: Read the $3.2 Million Edition of "Action Comics #1" OnlinePrint

Action Comics #1 You'll recall that back in August an Ebay auction for a 9.0 VF/NM graded 1938 edition of "Action Comics #1" set a record price of US$3,207,852.00.

The issue, which is one of less than 50 unrestored copies believed to remain today, was scanned page by page and is now available online. The pages have no obvious damage, no yellowing of the paper, and no stains, giving fans a look at the pristine pages of this historical comic book as it would have appeared 76 years ago.

Check out the full pages scans, cover to cover, of "Action Comics #1" at the CGC website.
