The Pre-Crisis and Tangent universes take the spotlight this week in DC Comics’s Convergence event, and that means some of our favorite characters are back including Nightwing, Cyborg, Starfire, and the rest of The New Teen Titans.
DC is putting on a “Villains Month” this September with most of their titles taking at least a .1 detour. While the merits of this idea can and have been discussed elsewhere, we have seen some interesting news with the solicits for the not one, but two Teen Titans issues for the month, which you can check out after the jump.

I got a chance to play Rise of the Manhunters, the Green Lantern movie tie-in game for X-Box 360. Now I’ve played some superhero games in the past that didn’t live up to the character they were trying to recreate, so I went in with a lot of expectations (some might say demands) for the game. Here’s a list of specific (and largely unreasonable) things I wanted out of this video-type-game
God of War is based on the hit Sony Playstation video game series by the same name and tells the tale of Kratos, Sparta’s mightiest warrior and his adventures before he became a servant of the gods. This God of War comic is a prequel to the franchise and, just like the games, is rated for mature readers. For those of you, who are yet to play God of War 3, fear not. This comic spoils none of the game.
There’s a new New Teen Titans original graphic novel headed your way in 2010, and it pairs George Perez and Marv Wolfman together again. â€œItâ€™s all the regular Titans, obviously because the story was plotted back then itâ€™s Troia, in that costume, Nightwing, Cyborg, Changeling, Danny Chase, Jericho, Starfire, and a number of others but theyâ€™re all there. This isnâ€™t a big surprise,” said Marv Wolfman.Â “What this really is, is the uncovered story that had been done at the height of the Titans. And except for the actual dialoguing, thatâ€™s exactly what it is. Because as I said, George
Â Or – “Former Captain America Steve Rogers Is STILL Dead, But That Could Change At Any Moment…” Â The most recent Previews gives us the news that this series will be running an additional issue before the Captain America series restarts in January with #602.Â (It’s really NOT #602, by the way…)Â Steve Rogers’ return to the land of the living is pretty much fait accompli, and the solicitations have already given us hints of what he’s going to do once he’s actually returned from the bleedin’ choir invisibule.Â Of course, the main problem we have is that at this point
Sony Online Entertainment has officially announced Marv Wolfman as a collaborator on the upcoming DCU Online MMORPG game.Â In addition to the press release, you’ll want to take the jump to see a whole new round of images from the game (remember to click the thumbnails for the larger view).
When Vigilante made his appearance in Nightwing, I wasn’t too excited about him. After the events of the last issue, I’m a little more interested, but I wonder if I’m ready for yet another DC title in my stack? Marv Wolfman is leaving Nightwing to work on Vigilnte, which is a surprise, but according to Wolfman, fans should probably check Vig out. …one of the biggest aspects of the comic that will affect the entire DC line. As Vig moves through a very real and gritty New York underworld, he will very quickly discover that some DC character has actually
