Titled "Myriad", this episode is scheduled to air on CBS in the USA on Monday, April 11 at 8.00pm ET/PT.
"Myriad" - Kara must find a way to free her friends when Non (Chris Vance) and Indigo (Laura Vandervoort) use mind control to turn National City's citizens into their own army, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, April 11 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
If you've been reading Superman: Lois and Clark, then you've seen that we brought back the pre-Flashpoint Superman. He's married to Lois Lane, they have a young son named Jon, and we find out they've been here for years living in secrecy. This new Action Comics is us fully integrating them into the world of Metropolis and the world of Superman in general.
When the book starts off, Lex Luthor has pretty much proclaimed himself the Superman of Metropolis. Well, our Superman knows Luthor's history on his own world and will never trust him or buy into the idea of him as a hero. Meanwhile, someone has found and released Doomsday on the city, and it's all complicated by the fact that Clark Kent is very obviously running around in Metropolis. The whole world has learned that Clark and Superman are one and the same, but suddenly they seem to be two separate people, so that can no longer be the case. We start to really build this entire mystery of "Who is Clark Kent?" while at the same time bringing plenty of the "action" the title promises as you only can with Doomsday.
How closely will your book be tied with the bimonthly Superman title?
Superman is being written by Pete Tomasi and Pat Gleason, and we're going to be making sure that our characterization is consistent with theirs and that as events move along, they reflect one another. It's not going to be like what we did in the old days, so to speak, but they're going to be running parallel with each other and featuring the same characters.

The issue is one long fight broken up into two parts: The Justice League fighting Rao without a plan, then the Justice League fighting Rao with a plan. That is it.
Hitch tries to break up the monotony by flashing back, twice. Both flashbacks, Batman telling Superman to stall, and Batman making a deal with Parasite, are relayed in a grand total of three panels. Both ideas could have been interesting if Hitch would have developed them. Instead, he wastes time with Wonder Woman and Aquaman making the same mistake that Superman has already made in attacking Rao.

Random House has brought on a super league of writers to do the characters justice, all of them New York Times bestselling authors. There's Leigh Bardugo (The Grisha Trilogy) on Wonder Woman, Marie Lu (The Young Elites) on Batman, Matt de la Peña (Mexican Whiteboy and The Living) on Superman, and Sarah J. Maas (The Thrones of Glass series) on Catwoman.
The books will be released in that order, starting with Wonder Woman in August 2017 - a month after the planned release of the Wonder Woman movie.
Random House says all four novels "will embrace themes of good vs. evil, coming-of-age romance, and superheroes from unexpected places who have the determination to achieve seemingly impossible dreams."
Fans looking for Young Adult novels about their favorite DC Comics characters can already purchase "Fallout (Lois Lane)" by Gwenda Bond and "Secret Hero Society: Study Hall of Justice" from the Superman Homepage Online Store now.

Secret Hero Society #3 will be published in spring 2018.
The greatest query to Zack Synder's latest offering, is why does he struggle with characters that should be easy for a director of his abilities to master? Synder has no problem establishing lush visuals, and has an undeniably rich imagination for setting up shots, and energetic action scenes. However, the aforesaid aren't enough to give in what Synder is about. He wants to create mythology and sprawling epic in the vein of classic films so momentous, they demanded an intermission as much as their audience did. However, what Synder is after is not within his scope of ability. He's best when the story needs his talents and not the other way around. Dawn of Dead added a jolt of energy to how zombies films could be achieved, and many have liberally stolen from Synder's handiwork there. 300 saw Synder bring sequential art to life, almost in the form of a flip-book, that audiences believed they controlled. Watchmen, his greatest attempt at what he's after now, succeeds on many levels, and if not for the fact that Watchmen's craftsmanship is almost presciently resistant to the limitation of a film, it may have been his magnum opus. Synder has left the pedigree he established to search for the white whale that eludes him, not that it's in his power to capture it, and his offerings have become progressively worse each outing.
Sigh... I'm sorry... I got caught up in the excitement... that last one was a bit over the top.
Let's try this again shall we?
Finally! It's here. And to say the movie is a bit divisive is like saying that Donald Trump is a bit controversial. If by "a bit" you mean just slightly less than Defcon 1 level Decisive then, yes... totally only a "bit" decisive.
So if you've been online since the day this movie came out you know that I kid, I kid. You also know that despite my jovial beginning I really liked this movie. I told Steve Younis before I reviewed the prequel comics that I wanted to do a review for this movie from a fan perspective. One that is not going to nitpick every little flaw, although I will point out some of them as I go, but one that is just going to look at this movie and see if it answers two questions in the positive.
First: "Was I entertained?"
Second: "Would I see this again and recommend it to a friend?"

Globally the movie took in US$85.1 million this weekend, pushing the film's global haul to $682.9 million... passing the lifetime gross of "Man of Steel" by just its second weekend. The film has also already surpassed the worldwide totals of "Iron Man", "Iron Man 2", "Captain America", and "Thor".
Despite the frosty reception from reviewers, analysts argued that "Batman v Superman" is a hit for the studio.
"They'll be crying all the way to the bank with $700 million," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for ComScore.
