September 3, 2015: Mehcad Brooks and Jeremy Jordan Talk "Supergirl"Print

Winn Schott James Olsen ComicBookResources.com sat down for a chat with two of the main cast members of the new "Supergirl" TV series - Mehcad Brooks and Jeremy Jordan, who play James Olsen and Winn Schott respectively. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    So far, what have you loved about doing the show, as far as the superhero aspect? What's been fresh and unique that you weren't expecting?

    Brooks: What's fresh and unique about the show that I wasn't expecting is the fact that it feels like any other show, in a way that it's about everyday people living in extraordinary circumstances. So there's workplace stuff. There's relationship stuff. There's extensive backstory. And I think a lot of times, superhero shows or movies are missing that. We always know the hero's backstory, but other than that, we're not really delving into the lives of the other characters. And I was really surprised at how intricate we were being with this character, my character.

    Jordan: What's great is we only have six core cast members. And so we have the luxury of getting a bit more focus put on it than if you had like a ten-character show. So that is nice. I think what's also kind of refreshing about the show is the fact it's family friendly. And I think it's a show that everybody can watch. And it's something that sends a really positive message.

    And I think a lot of these comic book superhero shows, as amazing as many of them are, they can either tend to skew a little bit darker or a little bit more adult-oriented or deal a lot more with the heavier issues. And we don't shy away from issues, and we don't shy away from action and adventure, suspense and danger and all that stuff. But at the same time, it's something that everybody can watch. There's a lightness to it, and there's a relatability to it that I think is sort of universal.

September 3, 2015: "Superman: The Movie" Screening for Fallen Police HeroPrint

    In an effort to honor Lt. Gliniewicz and support his family in this difficult time, The McHenry Outdoor Theater would like to host an event in which 100% of all proceeds will be presented to the Gliniewicz family via the Fox Lake Police Department. On Wednesday, September 9th, we will be showing 1978's SUPERMAN. Admission to this feature will be a donation of your choosing.

September 2, 2015: Glenn Morshower Cast as General Sam Lane for "Supergirl"Print

September 2, 2015: Dan Jurgens Talks About "Superman: Lois & Clark"Print

Superman: Lois & Clark #3 "Superman: Lois & Clark" is a new comic book series written by Dan Jurgens in which it is revealed that the pre-New 52 versions of Lois Lane and Clark Kent are living in hiding in the current continuity of the DC Universe.

During "Convergence", we saw that this version of Lois and Clark are married and celebrated the birth of their son, Jon. When we meet them in issue #1 of "Superman: Lois & Clark" Jon is now 9 years old, and the fact that the other version of Superman has had his secret identity revealed to the world is a major development to them.

Newsarama.com spoke with Dan Jurgens to find out more about this new comic book series...

    Why do you think readers are interested in - and why are you interested as a writer interested in - this version of Superman?

    Jurgens: I think this Superman will appeal to readers because he has a rich and deep history.

    One of the things readers have wrestled with, in terms of the "New 52," is that, by starting five years into the universe, they often felt as if the characters lacked context. While some of that freed writers to take characters in new directions, it also meant there could be a lack of understanding about who the characters are and how they relate to one another.

    These characters have a past that is essential to the characters they are now, just as our pasts are essential to who we are. That's what forms their character.

    OK, but they're not the Clark and Lois they used to be, simply because they're not in that same world. So how would you describe the life, and I guess the priorities, of Lois and Clark in your series? How are they the same and how are they different than other iterations of these characters?

    Jurgens: Clark and Lois' most notable priority is keeping Jon safe. That's one of the reasons they live in rather secretive fashion.

    But at the same time, this is Superman. He understands his responsibility to earth and the people around him. Preserving all of that is mission one, and just like any parent's job, will sometimes conflict with his home life.

    This is not the life they enjoyed while working at The Daily Planet. There are substantial differences.

    There's a plethora of retread ground in this issue, which doesn't make the story insolvent by any means, but it is still a twice-told tale in some areas. The "alien" or "god" that comes to Earth, and is too good to be true has been done before outside of the Justice League of America, but within it as well. A Kryptonian god makes the story reminiscent of "One World under Gog" where the Kingdom Come Superman faced off against a Third World god, who also came and spread miracles about Africa. These types of tales usually end the same way, with no god/hero/alien/One able to aid humanity in its problems as they either want our free will... or to eat us. The dialogue between Batman and Superman is yet another placard reminding the reader that Superman is a trusting, naive fool, who doesn't think and needs Batman to jumpstart what little gray-matter he has. New 52 Superman has had some dealings with aliens and gods by this time, and even without the Batman's reminder that he's an idiot, he should definitely be in mode to verify everything he can about Rao, before letting him on to his own devices with the Earth. Typically these stories play out the same way, but there is enough here in terms of nuance, that may allow for an ending that is divergent and simultaneously satisfying.

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

    "What happens when the oceans flood that island? How will it affect the sea life you are sworn to protect?" Nothing like good old-fashioned guilt when there's nothing else in the tank. The Batman's ploy shouldn't have worked, as Aquaman should know that a tidal wave won't harm "sea life" in the destruction of the island, unless there is something disastrous on the island, like a nuclear reactor. That Aquaman doesn't know this is curious, as he comes from a city that was once an island, until it was submerged in a cataclysmic event, perhaps by tidal wave? Nonetheless, it gets Aquaman into the game, and he's very much needed, as we're almost done with Year Four, and there are still at least six gold-level characters from the game that haven't made their appearance, yet. Poseidon's rage at Aquaman is comical, as Poseidon hadn't willed the tidal wave to commence. "Who dares interrupt the will against my will?!" would be more apropos. Aside of that, nothing truly occurs that we weren't privy to from last issue. Poseidon taking sides against Zeus is yet another contrivance to deal with, as there is no reason for Zeus to be involved in this quagmire, let alone Poseidon. Percy Jackson and his amazing adventures aside, there isn't the bad blood between the two brothers that some writers like to foist upon them. The exception being when Poseidon tried to dethrone Zeus, but then, every Olympian was in on that one. There's absolutely no reason for him to be involved, but then, there's no reason for any of the gods to be involved, which will be shown in another seven issues.

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

    If you're like myself and enjoy comic battles, this was one for you. It was also rewarding in it addressed a larger question and misconception of Superman and magic. Superman has one weakness, and that's Kryptonite in its myriad forms. However, red solar radiation and magic are lumped into the mix, mostly out of misconception and DILLIGAF writing. Red solar radiation is a topic of another time (looking at you GJ!), but this issue of Deathstroke is perfect to set the record straight. Magic has been said to be Superman's weakness to the point some believe that you could beat him silly with a glass slipper. Magic involves a considerable amount of nuance and thought, as it's spell casting, and not painting with a roller. Spells are designed for specific effect, and are almost all ways patterned for human beings. Magic lightening would kill a human being, while stagger, buffet, and knock Superman around, but not cause death. While Superman isn't immune to spells the way he is to bullets, he is highly resistant for a large body of magic that would decimate another being.
