Wow, whatta week it’s been here in the good ol’ US of A. We’ve had a truly bizarre moment in our country’s history where it feels like we’ve seen the rise of a real life super villain whose taken office as our leader. Yes Trump is somehow our President despite his ego maniacal, sexually repulsive and downright villainous demeanor.
He has risen to power seemingly as a real life Lex Luthor type of character. Which leads me to this cool little video- Batman V Trump! What if Batman was there to try and take down Trump? Wouldn’t that be awesome, well check out this trailer as it shows Trump in a classic showdown with Bruce Wayne!
Then there’s this for a good laugh…
It’s a fact, Brian Bolland is probably one of the BEST comic book artists of all time-his most famous work on The Killing Joke proves that, giving us arguably the most awesome representation of The Joker ever. He was also very popular for his comic covers, his work on the Flash are easily some of the best covers of all time. This particular issue # 571 of Action Comics from 1985 remains one of my favorites! Super simplistic but totally awesome as we get malfunctioning robotic version of Clark Kent on the cover, Bolland’s eye for detail always shows and this one is a classic!
This has got to one one of the most hilarious comic covers ever! The idea that Luthor had to defeat his foes was brilliant, turn his enemies into children and kick the shit out of them! Simply genius! Lex proves to be a truly heartless bastard on the cover of Action Comics #466 as he’s shown clocking the kid Superman from behind. What a prick! Still he earns points as one of the nastiest villains of all time for this cover alone!
Back in 1986 it was a real treat when John Byrne took over Superman starting with the mini series The Man of Steel. He rebooted the series with that limited series and then took over Superman and Action Comics entirely doing the writing and artwork. He gave the people of the 80’s a more adult version of Superman and drastically changed his arch nemesis Lex Luthor into simply an evil billionare instead of an adversary that would often times tangle physically with The Man of Steel.
Byrne was on top of his game artistically as well and here is one of my favorite covers from that era where Superman takes down my personal faves The Teen Titans in Action Comics #584. Damn may have to pull out my Superman back issues later tonight, I have every issue of the Byrne era and it still withstands the test of time…
Check out this rad article that gives you the full story on the John Byrne era Superman stuff, a fun read to say the least!
Well isn’t it? I mean how long have we had to wait for this moment? Ten seasons it seems but let’s still keep in mind it still may not really happen-at most I bet we get just a glimpse of Tom at the end of the season donning the red n’ blue tights. But who knows-maybe Zack Snyder will be so impressed with Welling in the suit that he’ll cast him in his own movie?! Highly doubtful I know but there have been rumors of a possible television movie to follow the final season. I for one feel he should have hopped in the suit a long time ago! It probably would have given the show the kick start it really needed….
