Superman: Man of Tomorrow is a Great Superman Origin (a Review)

It is still so impressive that Warner Brothers and DC have continued to release direct to video animated films based on their characters. Something that is so utterly 2000s surviving this long shows some skill and ability along with ranges of storytelling and chabges in art style over the years help show how the teams have evolved and change. They already went through one of … Continue reading Superman: Man of Tomorrow is a Great Superman Origin (a Review)

Don’t You Understand Dexter’s Bad Superman

There has been so much talk about what being an evil Superman would be like. From the dozens of comics and alt-universe stories to Brightburn, the film advertised as “Superman but bad,” to even the parody title of this post “Bad Superman” but Scouting for Girls they all have their takes on evil Superman.

Heroes in Crisis: A Beautiful and Tragic Disaster

Heroes in Crisis, DC Comics big event from 2018 by Tom King and Clay Mann, is a masterful piece of dramatic storytelling and one of the best dramatic superhero comics ever.
