It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman? No, it's Supergirl! This Supergirl TV Series Statue features the likeness of actress Melissa Benoist and stands about 12 1/2-inches tall. Sculpted by Adam Ross, this is one statue no Supergirl fan will want to miss out on!

Mint condition copies of Superman #1 can fetch as much as $500,000, Birkemoe said. However, the comic at The Beguiling has been restored, and is expected to sell for a comparatively paltry $45,000.
Still, Birkemoe said the comic "is by far the most rare and valuable comic we have ever offered for sale."
The comic book won't be on display long, as it is expected to sell fast.
The Beguiling comic book store is located at 601 Markham Street, Mirvish Village, Toronto.
Samsung Mobile posted a cryptic video/gif on Twitter earlier today saying, "Injustice is about to be served."
Herein lies a mystery...
"Injustice: Gods Among Us" has been out on all consoles and mobile devices for quite a while now. Indeed the "injustice" comic book series is almost about to conclude, and the biggest update in recent months to the game was the addition of movie/TV characters.
With this announcement specifically coming from Samsung, perhaps it's hinting at an Occulus VR Special Edition specific to Samsung (similar to the recent "Temple Run VR") because an "Injustice" sequel for Android only seems unlikely.
As DC Comics themselves retweeted this teaser it could be that a "Rebirth" edition of the game, with the new costumes and characters could be on the way.
Thanks to Adam Dechanel for the lead on this information.

As for the diversity of characters being used in the animated shorts, TV special and line of clothing, dolls and action figures, Nelson says:
With the official rollout of the merchandise hitting shelves in July, Nelson expects the DC Super Hero Girls line to be big business for DC Entertainment...
Our overall consumer products represent a $6 billion business. The DC brand brings in about half of that. We think the DC Super Hero Girls can be bigger than a $1 billion brand."

To be nitpicky, this being a Clark and Diana centric book, I had hoped for a Clark & Diana centric chapter. Also this far in we still know so little about the doppelgänger.
The two short scenes with Clark White and Kara keep their stories ticking along with a little fleshing out to neatly set up the future for both these compelling 'rebirths', but while necessary they felt a little like a distraction.

The pair of poster images show close-ups of Superman preparing to use his heat-vision, and Batman in his battle armor helmet.
"The cape can be thought of as the tail of a kite as well," says Professor James Kakalios, author of The Physics of Superheroes. "So if you have a character who is so strong that they could jump a great distance, they could perhaps leap a tall building in a single bound, then you could also use the cape as a signifier of the fact that they're moving fast through the atmosphere because you could see the cape billowing behind them. So it would give a visual indication of flight."
