Modern comic books like to tout the first appearance of new characters on the cover, or even with a limited series featuring their first adventures. Back in ’41, with the debut of Hawkgirl, it was more a matter of “Oh, yeah, by the way…” Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of All-Star Comics #5 awaits!
The first appearance of Green Arrow and Aquaman is set to hit the Heritage Auction block on November 17th, and it may bring in a cool six figures from one comic collector.
The secret identity is a curious thing. Clark Kent is wildly different from Superman, while Tony Stark makes little pretense of being different in his costume than out. Then there are heroes who identities require a flowchart, a scorecard and a long memory… Welcome to Ten Things!
Welcome to Earth 2, a new universe where old Golden Age heroes are revamped for the modern era. Over the past ten issues, DC Comics has gradually reintroduced classic heroes and villains into this universe. Without Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman to look after them, these superheroes have branched out on their own. However, with the return of Steppenwolf, do they have the strength to take on Apokolips?
A bunch of sites found these images over the holiday weekend, but it looks like most are attributing the source to Entertainment Weekly, so we’ll go with that.Â If you were wondering what some of the other characters from the upcoming Smallville: Absolute Justice were going to look like, here you go: Gotta say, I’m loving the Doctor Fate costume, and Stargirl doesn’t look half bad either.Â And for those who are desperately searching for more Hawkman images, here’s a bonus shot. via Entertainment Weekly
A couple of casting announcements have been made for the upcoming Justice Society episode of Smallville.Â Michael Shanks, of Stargate fame, has been cast as Hawkman, while Brent Stait of Stargate SG-1: Children of the Gods will be donning the golden helmet of Doctor Fate.Â Smallville has been pretty notorious for changing up the powers/look of classic DC characters for the television series, so I’m not entirely confident we’ll see either of the actors done their respective costumes for the Geoff Johns penned episode. via Sci-Fi Wire
According to TV, Zan and Jayna (and space monkey Gleep) will be making an appearance in the 9th season of the CW’s Smallville.Â The Wonder Twins are scheduled to pop up in episode 8, but don’t expect pointy ears – viewers will see purple outfits, and see the duo transform into a sheet of ice and a cougar (presumably the animal kind and not the older woman on the prowl for a still young(?) Tom Welling). That sounds cool, but what about another super-team appearance? There is one, and you’ll have to take the jump for that reveal.
