Save The Date! Who Needs The ‘Justice League’ When You Have This Amount Of DC Superheroes

Save The Date! Who Needs The ‘Justice League’ When You Have This Amount Of DC Superheroes

With the DC comics Extended Universe, (DCEU), films in full swing with the “Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman,” and now for the holidays “Justice League,” here are another set of superheroes from DC comics where you do not have to leave the house to view. 

The heroes from across four of The CW/DC shows can be mostly seen in the photos above. One hundred photos have been released by the network, we will only focus on a few. One could argue that this is another form of the “Justice League.” 

Let us take a look. From the first photo, top right, are the Atom with Supergirl aka Kara Zor-El and Felicity Smoak. Then from top left, in the waverider – the “Legends of Tomorrow” time machine, are the Stars from “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Supergirl,” including non supers like Iris West, Alex Danvers, Harry Wells, and Heatwave. From “The Flash,” Killer Frost will be fighting alongside the heroes. (See the full list below.)

Also featured on the waverider are the Ray and Citizen Cold from Earth 53/Earth X. 

Cliff notes version of what to expect on the two-night crossover event, the heroes and anti-heroes from Earth X come to our world with their Nazis to fight and destroy the supers of National City, Starling City, Central City, and perhaps all of time and space. Not pictured are the anti-Supergirl aka Overgirl, anti-Arrow aka Dark Arrow, or the “anti-anti” Reverse Flash aka Dark Flash; these anti-heroes are the enforcers for the Nazis that inhabit their world. Basically on Earth X, both world wars have been lost, and all of humanity is living in a dystopian future. 

There is hope however, with the Ray and his teammate Citizen Cold that try to help everyone they can. 

It all starts this week on Nov. 27 at 8pm Eastern Time, on “Supergirl,” then at a special time following the last daughter of Krypton is “Arrow” at 9pm. Then on Nov. 28, Barry and Iris are finally getting married on “The Flash,” all at 8pm Eastern Time. At 9pm the same night is “Legends of Tomorrow” ending the story arch.

Only on The CW.

List of superheroes featured in the photographs: 

From Earth X: The Ray, and Citizen Cold.

From “Supergirl”: the last daughter of Krypton, and Alex Danvers.

From “Arrow”: the highly skilled quill and bow hero Green Arrow, Felicity Smoak, Mr. Terrific, Black Canary, and Wild Dog. 

From “The Flash”: the scarlet speedster, Iris West, Harry Wells, Cisco Ramon aka Vibe, and Dr. Snow aka Killer Frost. 

And from the “Legends of Tomorrow”: the Atom, White Canary, Heatwave, Zari Tomaz, Amaya Jiwe aka Vixen, and Steel aka Dr. Heywood.

Save The Date! The Ray & The Anti-Heroes Of Earth X Make An Appearance In This Crossover Preview

In Case You Missed It, the battle between the anti-heroes from Earth X with our superheroes from Central City, National City, Starling City, and all of time and space, is almost upon us. 

When? A two-night crossover event starting on Nov. 27 with “Supergirl,” and then “Arrow,” at 8pm and 9pm respectively. Then the next night – Nov. 28, sees “The Flash” at 8pm, then followed by “Legends of Tomorrow” at 9pm. 

Who? As you can see in the above photos are our heroes from “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Supergirl.” But we finally get a glimpse of the ones fighting for Nazis as well as against them on Earth 53/Earth X. Those with extraordinary abilities on Earth 53 are anti-Supergirl, anti-Arrow, and the “anti-anti” Reverse Flash, among others. The ones fighting for the side of good are the Ray (in the middle second row), along with Captain Cold. 

The Ray has the powers similar to that of the Sun: flight, strength, etc. 

What and Why? It is unclear why the Earth X people are in our world, and why they are even interrupting Barry and Iris’ wedding. But all of the heroes team up once again to fight against evil. 

Where? It all takes place on The CW. 

Save The Date! More From The Upcoming Two Night DC & The CW Superheroes Event

Save The Date! More From The Upcoming Two Night DC & The CW Superheroes Event

 A Wedding, superheroes and villains, and Nazis. This is what consists of the two night premiere – starting on Nov. 27 and ending on Nov. 28 – where the four DC superhero shows crossover.

The super Kryptonian and her friends (“Supergirl”), the man with the killer bow and arrow skills, along with his team (“Arrow”); as well as the extraordinary heroes from across time and space (“Legends of Tomorrow”), all come to Central City to attend the wedding of the ages, the nuptials of Barry Allen and Iris West, team Flash.

These are more photos of the big night. They are at least 100 photos, but we only had time to go through a few of the ones that present a larger picture of the four story arc that will start from “Supergirl” and end with “Legends of Tomorrow.” 

From what we can see, Kid Flash aka Wally West, will be making an appearance at Barry and Iris’ wedding.

The plot for this big superhero crossover: heroes and anti-heroes from Earth 53 aka Earth X, invade Team Flash’s wedding, and it is up to all of the heroes who are there to stop it. Earth X is a world where we lost WWI and WWI, and it is people with extraordinary abilities that are the enforcers for the Nazis. Working fo the wrong side are the anti-heroes, such as Earth X’s Supergirl, Arrow, and the Reverse Flash just to name a few. But there is hope, the Ray and his friends who try to help refugees fleeing the occupation. Think of it as “The Man in the High Castle,” but with superheroes.

The Ray has similar powers to that the Sun: flight, heat, etc. Also fighting alongside the Ray are Captain Cold, played by Wentworth Miller, as well as Winn Schott, yes that Winn the whiz kid from National City. 

So mark your calendars on Nov. 27 at 8pm Eastern Time, “Supergirl” starts off the night. Then at a special time following the super Kryptonian at 9pm is “Arrow,” just for that night. The next night on Nov. 28, at 8pm Eastern Time, at the regularly scheduled time is “The Flash.” Then ending out the night is “Legends of Tomorrow” at 9pm. 

All of this excitement will take place only on The CW.

A Wedding, superheroes and villains, and Nazis. This is what consists of the two night premiere, starting on Nov. 27, where the four DC superhero shows crossover.

The super Kryptonian and her friends (“Supergirl”), the man with the killer bow and arrow skills, along with his team (“Arrow”); as well as the extraordinary heroes from across time and space (“Legends of Tomorrow”), all come to Central City to attend the wedding of the ages. The nuptials of Barry Allen and Iris West, team Flash.

The line up has changed in previous crossovers, and the challenge appears to be bigger for all of the heroes.

Before “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” the crossover event was only on “Arrow” and “The Flash” for at least two years. By year three, we saw all three shows – including “Legends,” working in tandem. In fairness, “Supergirl” came late to the party only as per scheduling, and it was not a full crossover. Although, they were two joint episodes with the scarlet speedster, and the girl from Krypton.

On Nov. 27, the show kicks off with “Supergirl” at 8pm Eastern Time. On that same night, at 9pm, the “Arrow” will follow just for that one night. Then on Nov. 28 at 8pm Eastern Time, “The Flash” will kick off the wedding. Also on Nov. 28, at 9pm, the extraordinary heroes “Legends of Tomorrow” will arguably round out the two-night event.

As far as the story goes, the anti-heroes from Earth 53/Earth X, will crash Barry and Iris’s wedding. It is unclear who will be kidnapped. All we know is that Earth X is a place where the Nazis inhabit their world, kinda like “The Man in the High Castle” but with super heroes. The anti-heroes of Earth X are Supergirl, Arrow, etc. But they are heroes fighting against the occupation, making his debut is The Ray. The Ray is a superhero imbibed with Sun like powers. Also on The Ray team is Captain Cold, played by Wentworth Miller.

Think of all the human atrocities that took place in WWI and WWII, occuring on Earth X. It is up to all of the heroes to get involved.

All of this will take place only on The CW.

Gabby, The Tenth Doctor, And The Monsters Of Night: Summary & Review Of Issue #2 

Gabby, The Tenth Doctor, And The Monsters Of Night: Summary & Review Of Issue #2 

And the last stop is…Gabriella “Gabby” Gonzalez  in distress from working two jobs at both of her family-owned businesses. But what she is seeing – on a near empty train – is not a hallucination as a result of stress. It is real, and so is the Tenth Doctor helping her. 

The pair of them and others are being chased by a monster, but this monster is a twisted version of Gabby, in Issue #2 of Titan Comic’s “New Adventures With The Tenth Doctor: Revolutions of Terror, Part 2.” 

See Gabby and the Tenth Doctor run. Picture the Doctor and the Latina from Brooklyn jumping off the last car as the train arrives in the oncoming station. Envision the monster giving chase to the pair and trapping them. With quick thinking, thanks to Gabby, the Doctor suggests “Don’t look at it. Don’t shut your eyes. But whatever you do, don’t look at it…” and Gabby pulls out a mirror which stops the monster. 

The Doctor tells Gabby to go home and seek safety, but Gabby cannot unsee what happened. The pair unexpectedly meet up in Gabby’s family-owned laundromat. The man from Gallifrey explains to Gabby that he is the Doctor and that strange things happen around him. He also shares with her a device that he uses to view beyond the light spectrum. 

With the Doctor’s special device, he explains to Gabby and she sees that they are celestial creatures (pranavores) living and evolving amongst humans and complex organisms on all planets with intelligent life. Every planet with life and an atmosphere has a psychosphere: a “cauldron” made up of thoughts, and extraordinary sensory perception activity outside of human perception. Within this plane these pranavores are simple, non threatening beings that magnify the empathic fields and feed off of positive emotions. 

As Gabby witnesses the pranavores, she also sees something else: sinister hunters and predators attacking the pranavores, they are cerebravores (the bad vibes). The Doctor tries to communicate with them to stop, but to no avail. The cerebravores use a three stage form of assault: attack and consume the pranavores; harnessing the pranavores’ telepathic abilities, the cerebravores pyschically attack humans by using their own fears against them. And thirdly, they use the human hosts to consume other humans.

The Doctor and Gabby seek refuge in Gabby’s family-owned laundromat where it all first started. At the laundromat, Gabby and the Doctor have their last stand with the cerebravores. The Doctor uses the washing machines as an interdimensional portal to travel to the night creatures’ origin, while Gabby must stay in the laundromat and protect it from attack. They both do battle on two fronts. 

The writer Nick Abadzis weaves another fast paced story. Also the artist Elena Casagrande, and colorist Arianna Florean, along with her team, draw with incredible style and vividness. This is an exceptional continuing story. Stay tuned for more as the Doctor and Gabby face off with monsters in the laundromat.

Drawing Blood From A Stone, The Fourth Doctor And Sarah Jane’s New Adventures: Summary & Review Of #2

Drawing Blood From A Stone, The Fourth Doctor And Sarah Jane’s New Adventures: Summary & Review Of #2

How do you fight evil? With goodness. How do you fight death and desperation? Perhaps with time. 

This IS Issue #2 of Titan Comic’s “New Adventures With The Fourth Doctor: Gaze of Medusa, Part 2.” The Doctor And Sarah Jane are facing one of their biggest challenges with these players and series of events. 

The writers Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby keep the story and action going. And the artist and colorist – Brian Williamson and Hi-Fi respectively – paint light and darkness with precision and high entertainment value. 

The last time we left the time duo, Sarah was held captive by the Lady with the veil, aka Lady Emily Carstairs. And, Sarah Jane was facing her own mortality: literally in the form of a stone statue of herself, dated to be over three thousand years old. Meanwhile, the Doctor got acquainted with a pair of father and daughter Chrononautologists/”experts in time travel.”

It is through the perspectives of Chrononautologists Professor Odysseus James and his daughter Athena with the Doctor, and Lady Emily with Sarah Jane how these events precipitated. Professor Odysseus and Athena tell the tale that he was laughed at by his fellow peers that one could actually travel through time, or the “Chrono-stream” as the professor calls it. Until one day, Lady Emily walked into his life claiming that she believed him. 

As Lady Emily tells it to Sarah Jane, she offered the Professor a device, the “Lamp of Chronos,” that he could use to not only see through time, but also communicate and travel as well. Lady Emily’s late husband was an “antiquarian” who had found the object in Greece. After Lady Emily’s husband’s death, she discovered what this lamp could do. The Professor was shocked, and intrigued by what he discovered with the lamp. But all Lady Emily wanted was to communicate and see was her husband and two children that had passed away. 

When the Professor refused, Lady Emily took the device back and attempted to make contact on her own through time. Lady Emily unwittingly created a gateway to take her to her family, but it had disasterous results: it turned almost all of her body into stone. It also gave her the power to summon the Cyclopsian henchmen.

The Doctor, the Professor, and Athena attempt to rescue Sarah Jane and stop Lady Emily. Have you ever fought with a Cyclops before? The Doctor and his new companions sure try to. Everything ends in a mess. With the activation of the lamp, the Professor, Sarah Jane, and one Cyclops henchman get stuck in time, in what looks like a graveyard of lifelike stone statues. And the Doctor, along with Athena, appear to be stuck with the Lady Emily in Victorian London. 

In this four part series about the man from Gallifrey and his trusted companion Sarah Jane Smith, it is an entertaining continuing story. Stay tuned for more.

No Unhappy People At The Amusement Park, Alice And The Tenth Doctor: Summary & Review #2 

No Unhappy People At The Amusement Park, Alice And The Tenth Doctor: Summary & Review #2 

Unspoilt nature is the Doctor’s favorite, but when it becomes spoiled by greed he has to find out what is happening. 

This is Issue #2 of Titan Comic’s “New Adventures With The Eleventh Doctor,” along with new companion Alice Obiefune. In this episode titled “The Friendly Place,” there is something sinister on the surface, as well as in the background on the planet Rokhandi and its amusement park.  Writer Al Ewing, along with artist Simon Fraser and colorist Gary Caldwell, bring dark humor and saachrin sweet color to this story. 

In this episodic “Doctor Who” graphic novel, the Tenth Doctor was supposed to take Alice to the beautiful Rokhandi with “diamond hummingbirds, and forests of light.” Instead, it is now a theme park where everyone is suspiciously happy, according to the Doctor. 

He asks Alice “What is it you don’t see?” Alice replies, “No unhappy people.” 

While the man from Gallifrey and the lady from London explore the amusement park, in the background there is a young man, with green hair, defacing the park’s property. The young lad then gets escorted by the park’s workers to another area. It is there he gets his mind and consciousness absorbed by something unseen. 

The Doctor is still incensed by the park’s happiness. He decides to try an experiment in the hopes that he is taken by the park employees. It works and he is subsequently taken away, Alice soon follows. The Doctor is brought to the mysterious area of the unseen creature. It is a giant white mass, a gelatinous entity trapped in a glass cage, the employees have used to make everyone zombie-like happy. 

The Doctor surmises it is the last form of indigenous intelligent life that existed on Rokhandi, before it became the amusement park. Alice tries to rescue the Eleventh Doctor with a toy gun, but it alerts security. The security guards, and the head security guard, August Hart, have apparently met the Doctor and Alice before, but the time duo have not. 

Alice soon realizes the creature’s capabilities, and she explains that it has to be invited into one’s mind. It gives what you desire, therefore you open yourself up to it. Mr Hart and his guards try to force the Doctor to the creature, but the man from Gallifrey hits upon on an idea, he wants to get reconditioned. 

Under much protest from Alice, the Doctor is convinced his plan will work. The creature explodes and the conditioning over the people and everyone at the park have been relinquished. The Doctor gave the creature a complex problem to solve, it could not. 

The way how an amusement park should be is returned: crying children, angry patrons, sick people, etc. After the Doctor and Alice return to the TARDIS and leaves Rokhandi, fast forward 10 years. There is a big surprise of future story lines to come.  

This episode is both silly and fun. It is also a serious commentary on pollution, capitalism and corporate greed, as well as conditioning. A great Issue #2, a reminder of greater stories to come.
