If you missed it, last week we posted details on two Superman related books in the first wave of "Convergence" books:
Writer: Frank Tieri
Artist: Vicente Cifuentes
When Supergirl, Zatanna, and Jade went to Jessie Quick's baby shower, they didn't expect to be taken to another planet for a year, or to be attacked by Flashpoint Aquaman.
"Convergence" comprises a nine-part weekly comic book series that begins on April 1 with issue #0 and ends with issue #8 on May 27, as well as 40 brand-new 2-part mini-series to be published throughout April and May. The story spins out of the finales of "Earth 2: Worlds End" and "New 52: Futures End." The event will follow Brainiac as he hoards cities from all over the multiverse and captures them in "domes." Starting in April, the entire current crop of DC series will be placed on hold for two months while 40 new two-part series, each one seemingly set in one of the publisher's numerous alternate realities or past continuities, take their place.
"Infinite Crisis" is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) with a robust lineup of DC Comics Champions, including Batman, Superman, Joker, Wonder Woman, and more.
"An enormous amount of detail and creativity has gone into producing what will be one of the most exciting and immersive dark rides experiences in the industry," said Tom Iven, senior vice president of U.S. park operations for Six Flags.
Guests will be part of the action as they fight alongside SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN, THE FLASH and the rest of the JUSTICE LEAGUE team, to stop Lex Luthor and The Joker from their diabolical plan to take control of Metropolis. Aided by the cybernetic Super Hero known as CYBORG, guests will be recruited to join the JUSTICE LEAGUE reserve team and trained to use high-tech laser blasters in preparation for anything the Super-Villains have in store for them. Traveling in six-passenger vehicles, riders take to the streets and take aim against The Joker, Lex Luthor, and his relentless robot army, in the thrilling BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS!
The multi-degrees-of-freedom motion-based ride vehicles were created by Oceaneering and are equipped with six interactive laser blasters per vehicle to help guests find the JUSTICE LEAGUE and free them from their captors. Complete with 4D effects of simulating fire, cannon blasts, and explosions, JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS is the ultimate dark ride adventure.
"By incorporating the dynamic ride system created by Oceaneering, along with the massive 3D screens, interactive game play, and highly detailed scenery by Sally Corp., we can achieve the next generation of interactive thrills," said John Wood, CEO of Sally Corporation, the industry leader in dark rides and creator of the lifelike animatronic Super Heroes.
JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS will feature custom-designed, state-of-the-art animatronics. The Joker's lifelike movements and menacing cackle will haunt riders as he sits atop his chaos-creating cannon spreading mayhem throughout the streets of Metropolis. The four-minute journey incorporates a wide array of special effects including five huge interactive 3D screens, incredible hi-definition animation and a dramatic musical score.
Six Flags is still keeping broader details about the ride experience under wraps, but Iven said park guests can look forward to a completely new experience with JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS as it is "the very first motion-based, interactive dark ride in North America."
Taking this release to another level, Warner Archive Collection has added an exclusive commentary track on the series finale episodes "Summit" and "Endgame" featuring creators Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti along with voice actors Jason Spisak (Kid Flash) and Stephanie Lemelin (Artemis). The package also includes a Behind the Scenes featurette.
"Young Justice: Invasion" finds our heroes five years into the future - and a lot can change in five years, as our super heroes are about to find out. First, there's some new residents to be found at Mount Justice: new team leader Nightwing, Wondergirl, Blue Beetle, Batgirl, Bumblebee and Beast Boy. And Young Justice will need all the help it can get as an alien presence has infiltrated Earth, while certain members of the Justice League are forced to stand trial at the criminal hearing off-world. Watch as The Reach, spearheaded by the quick-talking Ambassador and backed by the muscle of Black Beetle, manipulates a trusting public while maintaining its shadowy maneuvering with The Light. This is a grand 20-episode adventure as the risks have never been greater and the conflicts never so far-reaching - and the epic finale will shatter everything you know!

BQM: At the initial launch on the apps, 40% of those who bought Chapter 1 were new users to those apps. I've heard over and over again that Smallville continuing as a comic opened the doors for folks who had never picked up a comic before to enter that wonderful world. Comics are amazing, and it's great to know that our Little Book that Could helped welcome new readers to the larger party.
CS: Ha ha - I was going to say the same thing. I've consistently had people come up to me at comic book conventions to tell me Smallville is the first comic book they ever picked up and now they are hooked.
What was your favorite storyline in the comic?
BQM: "Olympus" - hands down. It was by far the most fun to write and gave me a chance to get a take on Wonder Woman down on paper that I'd been itching to write for a long time.
CS: Sorry for the lack of diversity, but "Olympus" was my favorite too. That was some good writing, Mr. Miller. I loved the take on Wonder Woman's origin and how the two universes were tied together through Lois. Bryan wrote a fantastic Wonder Woman.
