February 14, 2015: "Justice League vs. Bizarro League" Animated Movie ReviewPrint

Justice League vs. Bizarro League Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Children playing at a playground believe that they've sighted Superman, only it's Bizarro who's come to rescue them from nothing at all. Superman arrives on the scene, and is very much chagrined at the connection that is made: Bizarro being his brother. Superman coaxes Bizarro away from Earth, and finds another world for Bizarro to inhabit, setting up structures with incised faces to represent people. He leaves Bizarro for Earth and hopes all will be well.

    However, sometime later, Bizarro leaves his world and breaks into Lexcorp. Bizarro seeks the device that created him, and with it, he creates Bizarro versions of the Justice League.

    On Bizarro's world, Darkseid is mining the planet for the plentiful mineral that is found there. The Justice League arrives, looking to deal with Bizarro, only to find that they must now contend with Darkseid. After some mistrust and confusion, the respective Leagues are able to work together and defeat Darkseid. Bizarro saves Superman's life, by removing an intense amount of Kryptonite that Superman was exposed to, as well. Superman acknowledges Bizarro as a brother, and lets him know that he's welcome on Earth... within reason.

Don't let the synopsis steer you clear of the latest entry into the LEGO DC Universe franchise; there is plenty of story, despite the remarkably short length of the film, topping out at 44 minutes. It's a kid friendly film, something that DC should do more of, but it's laced with humour for adults, the big kids in the room.

The vocal work here is pretty impressive, but that should be expected as the talent pooled ranges from working on Star Wars: The Clones Wars to the current Teen Titans series. Each character is voiced realistically for LEGO, i.e. Superman is the classic hero tone, Bizarro is a lovable dufus, and Batman is a paranoid jerk... well, maybe not Batman. A large part of the interplay is Batman's distrust of Superman. Batman's attitude towards Superman garnered questions before and after the screening, with the responses being hackneyed platitudes, but more on that below.

February 14, 2015: Dan Jurgens on Returning to Superman with "Convergence"Print

Superman #1 ComicBook.com caught up with comic book creator Dan Jurgens to talk to him about returning to the world of pre-New 52 Superman with the upcoming "Convergence: Superman" 2-part mini-series. Here's part of that interview...

    How much do these characters actually understand about what's going on in Convergence? Based on what we saw in the Futures End: Booster Gold one-shot it kind of seems like they're all more or less in their own bubble, unsure of just what is going on to their cities/worlds.

    In terms of the overall plot as it involves the mainline Convergence book, there isn't a lot known. For example, Clark, Lois and Jimmy have been very isolated. They really don't know what's been going on, other than the fact that they haven't been able to leave their city.

    Of all the characters you've ever worked with, you're probably most associated with Superman in the mind of many readers. What made you want to go another round with the character during Convergence?

    My overall fondness for the character.

    Part of what happened is that when DC made the switch from the previous DCU to Flashpoint to the New 52, is that those characters never had a "farewell" type of story. There were no goodbyes - no sense of closure. The fans never got to see that last adventure.

    This makes up for that.

    So, yeah, given the time I'd spent with Superman, I became the somewhat logical guy to do the story.

    Obviously, you worked on Superman post-Byrne and again in the New 52. This version - set after the events of Infinite and Final Crisis but before Flashpoint - is one who wasn't†really 100% either. How does your approach to the post-Birthright, post-Secret Origin Superman differ (if it does) from the character you wrote for so long?

    Not sure if I know what you mean by, "Wasn't really 100%."

    I basically approached this character as, for lack of a better term, the Byrne version that basically carried through until Flashpoint. Yes, there were some tweaks along the way, but this is essentially it.

    As somebody who was there for the "triangle numbers" era, is it as cool for you as it is for the fans to have all four Superman titles back in print for this story?

    Yeah, it is.

    Those were good, solid comics for the most part. The stuff we were doing on the character worked extremely well, was true to Superman, and created a sense of momentum for him that stretched across four titles. It was good stuff.

February 13, 2015: Comparing "Fifty Shades of Grey" and "Superman: The Movie"Print

Superman: The Movie A New York Post article lists five reasons why "Fifty Shades of Grey" is just "Superman: The Movie" with sex...

    E.L. James' novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" began as fan fiction derived from the "Twilight" saga, but based on the movie out today, it appears James had another story in the back of her mind: "Fifty Shades of Grey" is pretty much an R-rated version of "Superman: The Movie."

Reasons listed include: "The guy is an orphan who became mega-powerful", "The girl is a journalist", "The helicopter on the roof scene", and "The guy has a secret identity and a forbidden palace".
