With the return of the concept of Earth-2, an alternate Earth with alternate versions of characters we know, we’ve seen a resurgence of Power Girl and the Huntress, both of whom deserve another turn in the spotlight. But, what about the events that brought them to our world? That’s what DC brought us Zero Month for, and your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Power Girl and Huntress are just making their presence known in the DCnU proper after living there for five years. What waves are they going to make? Can they get back home? What is Helena’s last name here? Find some of the answers in the Major Spoilers review after the jump. . .
Worlds’ Finest, a series that ran for 45 years, is back. But it isn’t Superman and Batman gracing the cover, but rather Power Girl and Huntress, heroes from Earth-2 stranded on Main DCU Earth (no seriously, that’s what it’s called), looking for a way home.
With the recent sad end of several of the first batch of DC’s New 52 titles, and the upcoming New 52 Wave Two, I started to wonder about the fates of characters left behind in the universal schisms that Barry Allen’s (rather Freudian) chronal antics caused. What of Elongated Man? Or Peacemaker? The Black Pirate? The Law’s Legionnaires? The Guardian? The Young Heroes? Misfit?
And, for the love of Egg-Fu, what about Ambush Bug???
Today’s MS-QOTD (pronounced “misquoted”) for Faithful Spoilerites everywhere is this: What titles need to be part ofa theoretical New 52 Wave Three?
We’ve seen Batman and Robin of Earth-2, and in the variant cover, we’ve seen Wonder Woman and Superman kicking the crap out of a horde of Parademons. Today, DC shows off Jim Lee’s design for the last of the Amazons.
What was up with Helena Wayne before she came to the main DCU Earth and became Huntress? Earth-2 and World’s Finest are two of the second wave of DC’s New 52 comics headed our way in May that focus on her move from one Earth to the other, and today, the publisher released a look at Robin by Kevin Maguire.
One of the best fan films of all time is Sandy Collora’s Batman: Dead End. The year it was released, it took the San Diego Comic Con by storm. The next year, Collora planned to follow up with a trailer of his version of World’s Finest.
That video was never seen by fans at the show. That year the publishers cracked down on “unauthorized” use of characters, which forced Collora to release the film online. If you haven’t seen it, take a gander.
Still makes me wonder what might have happened if Collora were given the chance to write and direct this team-up.
Today, I am going to be pretty busy with other things, that will become clear this afternoon and this evening. In the meantime, I tease you with this image.
There will be fewer than normal updates today, so thanks for your patience…While you are awaiting updates and new bits of information, now would be a good time to check out the archives, and the rest of the site, and start thinking about what makes a good team.
I havenâ€™t talked with anyone who is a big fan of Damian Wayne.Â The side-kick-wanna-be grates on every nerve and itâ€™s a wonder heâ€™s able to get anything done with his rotten attitude.Â There are probably more people who like the Guardian, Metropolisâ€™ Science Police Field Commander. But he too tends to push certain buttons that turns some people off.Â Toss them both in an issue of Worldâ€™s Finest, and watch the fireworks fly.
