"Darkseid War" - Chapter 9: "Power Mad"

Writer: Geoff Johns
Penciller: Jason Fabok
Inker: Jason Fabok
Cover: Jason Fabok

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

    The story lost me with Grail announcing her return, stating "We're Baa-aack". There is more action per panel in this issue, than one would normally see in months' worth of comics, and it means absolutely nothing. The storyline is so long and slow, we know what becomes of every character here, thanks to solicitations for July's DC Comics slate. Johns spends so much time building to the delivery of Superwoman's son, and when the baby arrives, nothing occurs. It's just a splash page moment of wafer thickness, ad worth. It's mind-boggling how "The Darkseid War" came to be an ongoing train on the track to nowhere. It started out very strong, then decided to jump into the jaws of defeat for reasons unbeknownst to this critic. Johns has decompressed the story to the point it's no longer even relevant to the DC Universe, as most if not all books have moved on to their own storylines, and away from any tangible connection to this one. Johns may hold a master stroke that will only be displayed with the closing issue, but after several issues, mini-series tie-ins, and specials, readers who have patiently followed this storyline deserve better than what has be given thus far.

May 2, 2016: "Batman v Superman" - The Box Office VerdictPrint

Who Will Win? With its theatrical release all but over, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is a box office success says The Hollywood Reporter, with the film likely to end up having grossed around $875 million worldwide.

    The verdict is in: Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will end up as the No. 7 comic book movie of all time at the worldwide box office to date, not accounting for inflation.

    Through Sunday, BvS - which is all but done with its run - has grossed $862.9 million globally, including $325.1 million in North America (37.7 percent of its total) and $537.8 million internationally (62.3 percent). It's likely to finish up in the $875 million range when all is said and done, not enough to change the order.

While fans and critics continue to argue over the success or failure of the film, the fact is the movie made money for Warner Bros.

    BvS, costing at least $225 million to produce before marketing, has grossed notably more than Snyder's Man of Steel, which first introduced Cavill as the newest superman. Released in 2013, Man of Steel took in $668 million globally and $291 million domestically.

    "Still, outside of Christopher Nolan's two Dark Knight movies, and Tim Burton's Batman films when you adjust for inflation, this is the highest-grossing property in DC's bullpen thus far. It tops Man of Steel by more than $200 million," says analyst Jeff Bock. "So yes, BvS successfully relaunched DC's cinematic universe, but they are nowhere near Disney/Marvel in terms of critical reception and box office prowess. One can only hope that bigger and better is still on the way."

May 2, 2016: "Lois Lane: Double Down" Novel Available Now!Print

Lois Lane: Double Down DC Comics' iconic character Lois Lane is back for more in Lois Lane: Double Down, the second book in a new series from Switch Press, the Young Adult imprint of Capstone. Following the success of the first book in the series, Lois Lane: Fallout, author Gwenda Bond returns with a new story of the adventures of a teenage Lois Lane, as she begins to discover her passion for journalism and become the character loved by generations of fans.

    Lois Lane has settled in to her new school. She has friends, for maybe the first time in her life. She has a job that challenges her. And her friendship is growing with SmallvilleGuy, her online maybe-more-than-a-friend. But when her friend Maddy's twin collapses in a part of town she never should've been in, Lois finds herself embroiled in a dangerous mystery that brings her closer to the dirty underbelly of Metropolis.

"Lois Lane is an icon, one of the most well-known and enduring figures in American pop culture - and for good reason," says Bond. "She's a hero all of us can relate to. It's been a tremendous honor and a great pleasure to get to write about her in an all-new way, as a modern teenager, and I'm thrilled to be continuing her story in Double Down."

Lois Lane has been an integral part of the cultural landscape since her first appearance in Action Comics #1 in 1938, which also introduced the world to Superman. A Super Hero without superpowers, the character has been featured in a dizzying number of comic books, films, and television shows.

"Switch Press has been thrilled with the critical and fan response to Lois Lane: Fallout and we are all excited to see the series continue with Double Down," said Miles Stevens-Hoare, Managing Director of Capstone's Global Trade business. The Lois Lane series is produced through Capstone's licensing partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment.

Order "Doube Down (Lois Lane)" by Gwenda Bond now from the Superman Homepage Online Store.

"The Final Days of Superman" - Part IV: "Last Kiss"

Cover: Paul Renaud
Variant Cover: John Romita, Jr., Scott Hanna & Laura Martin

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    The more this story progresses the more I'm enjoying it, despite the inevitable outcome.

    Kara in her short scene seems a lot more human, more awkward, than before. Considering her angsty rage driven stories past, it's nice to see her being more than an angry teenager. Getting back to the story this meeting was a long time coming, Diana and Clark needed this moment for closure. Regardless of Clark's predicament, their break up was only based on 'I think' and it's nice to see it reach a much stronger climax. The kiss, so sad, was it a final kiss as the title suggested? I think so. There just seemed to be a finality to it. Many of us have endured break ups, maybe not with the impetus of impending death but we've all been there as the relationship ender or the broken hearted - almost poetic that Lois and Steve would interrupt the moment.

April 29, 2016: Brandon Routh Reflects on "Superman Returns" Ten Years OnPrint

Superman Returns Believe it or not, it's been 10 years since "Superman Returns" was released on the big screen in 2006. EmpireOnline.com caught up with Superman himself, Brandon Routh, to ask him about the movie 10 years on...

    "That will be a book someday, when I fully realize that whole experience," smiles Routh, currently starring as Ray Palmer/The Atom in the TV series DC's Legends Of Tomorrow, "but I think just the lack of knowing what was going on for so long was definitely a challenge, because I felt the need to uphold an image. No one asked me to uphold one, but that's how much I cared about the character. I felt certain things might be off-limits, certain roles. At least for the first couple of years when I thought we'd be coming back. As it got further away, that became less and less of an issue."

    Routh expresses that he really likes the movie. While acknowledging that Superman should have thrown a few more punches and that he would have preferred more practical flying effects than CG, those are not areas where he was able to have any influence. "Those are," he says, "small, personal things. But I think it was a very nice movie; it may not have been the Superman movie everyone wanted and I completely understand that - it's hard to please everybody - but I'm very proud of it still. And proud of Bryan and everyone who worked so hard to make it."
