Wonder Girl has come to New York City to find Red Robin and fill him in on what she’s learned about N.O.W.H.E.R.E., but it turns out she’s going to have to go through the mysterious Superboy first! As two of DC’s most powerful young metahumans battle over the streets of Times Square on New Year’s Eve, Red Robin assembles his team to help Wonder Girl.
Transformers: Death of Optimus Prime Writer: James Roberts and John Barber Artist: Nick Roche Colorist: Josh Burcham Letterer:Shawn Lee
On Earth, the AUTOBOTS learned of the treachery of their human allies–and their loyalty was pushed past the breaking point. In space–with the fate of the universe at stake–the TRANSFORMERS waged the final battle for the fate of CYBERTRON. With the end of CHAOS, the war between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS is over.
Now the hard part begins, as the survivors must confront their future head-on. The TRANSFORMERS’ homeworld is reborn–but it’s not the safe home the AUTOBOTS had hoped for. Amidst a hostile planet–and an angry population–AUTOBOT leader OPTIMUS PRIME must try to unite the divided loyalties of his fellow TRANSFORMERS. In the process, he is forced to question whether he is the ruler a united CYBERTRON needs. IDW’s December comic, TRANSFORMERS: THE DEATH OF OPTIMUS PRIME, answers that question, once and for all.
Major Spoilers Poll of the Week:FIGHT
This week, we are pitting two of the biggest Saturday Morning Cartoon teams against each other, and we want to know who would win.
The Impossibles (1966)
The Impossibles were a trio of rock and roll musicians. When contacted by “Big D” (voiced by Paul Frees) about criminal activities in Empire City, they became superheroes. Like the Monkees, the group’s appearance (in their musician form) was based on 1960s pop star stereotypes, which included somewhat long hair, brightly colored (and matching) outfits, high-heeled boots, screaming female fans and, unlike the Monkees, no percussion or bass instruments.
The Mighty Heroes (1966)
The Mighty Heroes was an animated television series created by Ralph Bakshi for the Terrytoons company. The original show debuted on CBS, on Oct. 29, 1966, and ran for 1 season for 21 episodes. The series is set in Good Haven, a city that is continually beset by various supervillains. When trouble occurs, the city launches a massive fireworks display to summon a quintet of high-flying superheroes into action.
