April 9, 2015: Take Your Photo With Margot Kidder at Niagara FallsPrint

Niagara Falls Fans attending the 2015 Niagara Falls Comic Con this June will have an opportunity to get their photo taken with Margot Kidder at the same spot she and Christopher Reeve filmed scenes for "Superman II".

    Kidder will return to the falls for a special photo opportunity while she is visiting Niagara as part of her appearance at Niagara Falls Comic Con. A limited number of super fans will be able to have a photo taken with the actress in the exact spot the movie was filmed.

    Kidder has fond memories of the filming here, especially the scenes along the Niagara River.

    "I actually insisted on doing the bit where Lois clambers, sputtering, out of the Niagara River by myself. The stuntmen rolled their eyes but said nothing, so they harnessed me up, had six strong stuntmen making a circle behind me, and I stepped into the river," Kidder said from her home in California. "The current was so strong, but I was too proud to cry uncle. So frightened as I now was, as I should have been in the first place, I did the shot over and over again. I have never appreciated stuntmen and the stuff they put themselves through, more than I did that day."

    †"This will be the first and probably only time that fans will ever get a chance to get a photo with Margot in the exact spot she filmed Superman II 35 years ago," said Chris Dabrowski, President of Niagara Falls Comic Con. "This opportunity will truly be a piece of movie history. It's once in a lifetime."

The special photo opportunity will take place at 11.00am on Friday, June 5, outside at Table Rock Centre. Only those with pre-purchased tickets will be allowed within the area of the photo opportunity. Tickets include a photo with Margot Kidder, and an 8x10 print of the rare moment caught on camera. Tickets are limited to only 50 and are available by visiting the Niagara Falls Comic Con website at www.nfcomiccon.com and clicking on "Buy Tickets". Tickets for the photo-op are available until Tuesday, June 3.

April 8, 2015: "Infinite Crisis" Reveals Lex Luthor ChampionPrint

Turbine and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced a new playable character for the "Infinite Crisis" free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena game - Lex Luthor!

    A brilliant and cunning blaster, Lex Luthor is coming to dominate Infinite Crisis on April 29th. Be ready for the greatest mind in Metropolis with this handy guide!

Lex Luthor

    Born in Smallville but believing himself superior, Lex Luthor murdered his abusive father to escape small-town America and build an empire on his genius. On arriving in Metropolis, he exploited his brilliance and built a vast commercial empire but soon found his plans frustrated by another newcomer to that city: Superman.

    Not one to take disappointment lightly, he became the sworn enemy of Superman. He has vowed that the world will turn its back on the Man of Steel along with all other "alien" meddlers, and instead embrace him as Humanity's champion... and ruler.

    Lex Luthor's greatest weapons are his highly analytical mind and vast scientific knowledge. He quickly analyzes any situation and formulates an efficient and deadly response. His many encounters with Superman have resulted in him creating an armored exoskeleton that exploits many of the hero's weaknesses.

April 7, 2015: Dan Jurgens Makes Superman a Dad in "Convergence"Print

Convergence: Superman #1 Across April and May DC Comics is putting their normal publishing schedule on hold for the "Convergence" event, which will resurrect characters and stories from previous continuities. In "Convergence: Superman #1", out this Wednesday, Dan Jurgens tells a story about a powerless Man of Steel and his wife Lois Lane fighting the good fight in Gotham City. Here's an excerpt from an interview Jurgens did with USA Today...

    Illustrated by Lee Weeks, the Convergence crossover catches up with a pregnant Lois aiding and abetting a masked Clark Kent, who's tapping into his inner Batman in Gotham, one of the many cities under a dome on the living planet Telos that keeps superhumans' powers turned off.

    All these locales are being pitted against each other to survive, and when the dome comes down and Superman gets super again, he's faced with a neighboring Gotham from the alternate Flashpoint world where Bruce Wayne was killed as a little boy and it was his father, Thomas, who instead became Batman.

    Superman and the Dark Knight have had a long relationship, but it becomes inverted when it's Thomas and Clark instead of Bruce and Clark, Jurgens says. "What happens when all of that is tied around the idea of Lois having a baby when you have a Batman who's a vigilante because he lost his son."

April 7, 2015: "Justice League: Gods and Monsters" Animated Movie TrailerPrint

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Warner Bros. has released a trailer for their next animated offering, "Justice League: Gods and Monsters". This animated movie, which will also spawn a 3-part animated series, is a collaboration between Warner Bros. Animation/DC Entertainment and Machinima which puts a dark spin on Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

In this version of the characters, Superman appears to be a son of General Zod and is shown to be more violent and quick-tempered. Batman is not Bruce Wayne but Kirk Langstrom, who becomes a pseudo-vampire because of the bat venom that he used to try and cure his cancer. He now feeds on the blood of criminals in order to live. Wonder Woman is no longer an Amazon, but is the wife of Orion and is one of the New Gods. In the film and in the series, they still form the Justice League that is being persecuted for allegedly causing the massacre of a group of scientists.

"Justice League: Gods and Monsters" is an original animated film executive produced by Timm and co-produced by Burnett that will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment later in 2015.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman/Wonder Woman #17Print

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman/Wonder Woman #17

Scheduled to arrive in stores: April 1, 2015

Cover date: May 2015

"Casualties of War"

Writer: Peter Tomasi
Penciller: Doug Mahnke and Ed Benes
Inker: Jaime Mendoza, Keith Champagne, Mark Irwin and Ed Benes

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    Despite feeling rushed the finale to Peter Tomasi's first arc on this title was satisfying. The first scene was a bit weird but once the action got going I settled in and enjoyed the ride. To be fair there wasn't a whole lot to this issue. Superman attacks Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is given a choice between saving a lot of people and saving the man she loves. Wonder Woman chooses humanity but gives Superman an out. Superman is freed from Circe's control, they double punch Magog. Wonder Woman tries to connect with Superman's love of writing. The story ends where it began and the two characters had a better understanding of each other.

    That's where Tomasi won me over. Everyone seems to have a different dog in this Superman dating Wonder Woman race. Mine is seeing how writers explore why these two work as a couple. Superman dating Wonder Woman isn't a story. It's an idea. The story is how the two get along and why would they work romantically. The answers to that question can vary depending on what version of Superman and what version of Wonder Woman we're talking about. Right now we're dealing with an alienated but still wanting to be human Superman and a god of war Wonder Woman. These are not the ideal versions of either characters but this is the hand the New 52 dealt so that's the hand Tomasi is playing.
