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.

Time for everyone to take sides If the Sinestro Corps War was the sleeper hit for DC last year, then Superman: New Krypton should be the hit for 2009 (although I think we all know that title will fall to Blackest Night).Â Here Superman must decide what is best for is adopted home; stand with his fellow Kryptonians, or fight for what is right.Â It seemed like Kal-El would stand with his fellow Kryptonians early in the series, but a single act of aggression has Kal firmly on the side of Earth.Â Too bad there are 100,000 Kryptonians ready to
