The history of DC’s Katherine Kane (alias Batwoman) is a complex and fascinating one. Initially introduced as a love interest for Batman in response to allegations about his homosexuality circulating in the mid-1950s, she eventually came to settle into a single-sex relationship of her own with policewoman and long-term supporting DC character Maggie Sawyer. But despite the pioneering reputation of recent Batwoman comics, DC have allegedly...
Following on from the recent re-imagining of fan favourite Lobo as part of DC’s 52 range, it appears that no one is safe, not even iconic characters He-Man and Skeletor, as DC have unveiled new looks for the pair of them!
Set to be revealed to the world in the forthcoming DC Universe vs. Masters of the Universe comic that is released on September 4th, the new design gives the iconic 1980’s villain a makeover that leaves him looking like a...
NetherRealm Studios’ upcoming brawler featuring heroes and villains from the DC Universe, Injustice: Gods Among Us, is aiming to arrive on store shelves by April 2013. This means we still have many months to guess if our favourite characters will be included and who really would win in a battle between Batman and Superman.
The included characters so far include:
Booster re-enacting Platoon!
JLI #7!(Jurgens. Lopresti. Ryan. Cox. Lanham!)
PREVIOUSLY IN JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONALWith the Signal Men defeated and Earth saved from certain annihilation, the members of Justice League International expected to bask in glory and appreciation. Such is not the case as a new threat, one far more dangerous than anyone dared suspect, emerges and attacks with dire results, forever altering the team and sending...
Damn that Arrow…
Green Arrow. Issue #7!(Nocenti. Talibao. Leigh. Porter. Horie!)
Green Arrow is one of my favourite comic book characters.
It’s such a simple idea, as the best ideas tend to be. Take Robin Hood, move him to the modern day, throw in alliteration, and presto – you have a classic superhero. There’s some people out there who think he’s a Batman rip-off, which seems a tad off. Batman has his roots in classic...
All is Darkseid!
There be spoilers below!
Justice League: Issue Six!(Johns. Lee. Williams)
PREVIOUSLY: Darkseid came, he saw, he…
… got his butt well and truly kicked by Aquaman and Wonder Woman in one of the coolest things I’ve ever read in a comic-book.
Prior to this point, I wasn’t entirely convinced with the new Justice League. It was a good read to be fair, it just never seemed to really be ‘popping’ off the page in the way you’d...
Don’t call her Aquawoman!
Aquaman #6!(Johns. Reis. Prado!)
Since I started reviewing comics here at MCM Buzz, I’ve read a lot of good and a fair few mediocre. Even given some positive reviews. Which makes this difficult, as this comic almost necessitates a complete overhaul of how I grade the material that I read and what criteria I use in terms of analysis.
I mean… it’s just ridiculous.
And by ridiculous, I mean...
The Avatar of Tech Strikes Back!
On Thursday evening, DCU Online hosted a webcast designed to tease players (both new and long-term) about the content they could expect in the third DLC pack; the intriguingly titled “Battle For The Earth.”
While they were keen to keep spoilers to a minimum, some fascinating new material was unearthed. Namely that it’s the biggest DLC yet!
The first DLC (Fight For The Light) had a new power (Light),...
House of El Kombat!
Superboy #6(Lobell. DeFalco. Silva. Lean!)
PREVIOUSLY: Superboy beat the Teen Titans to a pulp.
One of the positives, and negatives, of the DCNu reboot is that attention to continuity means smaller crossovers between titles that are tightly organised. The problem is that if you miss one of those issues, you’re coming into the end part of a story and thus aren’t really sure what exactly happened.
I didn’t read...
With this ring…
Green Lantern #6(Johns. Choi. Cipriano)
PREVIOUSLY… The first arc of the DCNu Green Lantern ended with Sinestro facing the people of Korugar and using all of his willpower to give them temporary rings so that they could fight off the Sinestro Corps. He then took back the ring that he’d given the expelled Hal Jordan, and left Hal back on Earth. Hal then FINALLY got together with Carol Ferris, and pledged to leave...
