    This was the best structured story this series.

    The parallels between Reiser and Cassie play well to the narrative despite the resolution being the same as the confrontation with Miles.

    The news is in that Doomed will be ending by issue #6 and despite the series being terrible thus far, it is finally finding its feet.

    It isn't the most original of books, and a far cry from being well written but now Reiser is no longer bouncing around from confrontation to confrontation it may be a turning point.

September 21, 2015: Zack Snyder Says "Batman v Superman" is "Man of Steel 2"Print

Man of Steel In an interview with Jam Canoe, director Zack Snyder has updated us on where the 2-part "Justice League" movies are at, and gives his thoughts on whether we'll see a "Man of Steel 2".

    For the upcoming crop of DC superhero films – including 2017's Justice League Part One and 2019's Justice League Part Two, both of which Snyder is slated to direct – "we really have to figure out the why of them. And I think that we have. That's the one thing that's cool to me about Batman v Superman, it's all about the mythology of these two massive icons. And I think that's compelling."

    So where does that leave Man of Steel 2 in the mix?

    "I think in a way Batman v Superman is Man of Steel 2," said Snyder, making it sound like a standalone Superman sequel is definitely not DC's highest priority right now. "Justice League is kind of the transcendent, knights-of-the-round-table of the story. It'd be interesting to think about what a standalone Superman movie might be."

As the interviewer states, it doesn't sound like a stand-alone Superman movie is a priority for Warner Bros. at the moment. Perhaps that might change as plans for the Justice League movies begin in earnest.

    Finally! Things get interesting in this story. The action brings it! There is a lot less internal dialog in this issue. I like who is behind this mess. Chaos and anarchy are tools often used by this villain, his/her methods show an intellect that makes this character compelling. He/She is going to be a true challenge for Superman.

September 21, 2015: Jack Larson Dies - Aged 87Print

Jack Larson It is with great sadness that I report that Jack Larson, best known for playing Jimmy Olsen in the 1950s "Adventures of Superman" TV series, has passed away, aged 87.

Jack Larson, who was also a playwright and librettist, died Sunday at his home in Brentwood, California. The New York Times reports that the death was confirmed by Alan Howard, a longtime friend.

I was lucky enough to have met Jack ten years ago when he came to Sydney to film his role in "Superman Returns". We chatted for hours about his career, George Reeves, Superman and many other things, over a nice Chinese meal at a Restaurant on Sydney Harbour. He was very funny and entertaining. A true gentleman.

He will be sadly missed.

"Stupid Tartarus"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Xermanico
Inker: Xermanico
Cover: Neil Googe with Rex Lokus

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

    Buccellato is trying really hard for a donut, and he just may get his wish with the story he's on about. The amount of slapstick, plot armor, and Deus ex Harley Quinn in this installment is just shameful. If you don't have a story to tell, that's one thing, but to be so pedestrian in the attempt to cover your bottom is distasteful to say the least. It's an obvious ploy: Harley is popular, and very hot, right now, so insert her in as an interlude/sub-plot of the non-existent story. No one will mind or complain, it's Harley, right? So long as she's up to her usual shenanigans, everything will be fine. Wrong, wrong, wrong. It's one thing if readers no longer care about quality, and just continue on reading mindlessly, in lock-step OCD fashion, that compels them to consume Injustice inexorably, however, Buccellato still owes something to the quality of his own work. Perhaps that concern is misplaced, and there is more to come that will salvage this dreadful account, but with a handful of issues to go, it's obvious that there will be no saving of Year Four, which has been padded tripe since issue 5.
