TNTM: Justice League versus The Power Rangers

DC Comics and Boom Studios crossover

If you are in any comic book store for longer than a few minutes you will undoubtedly hear the “who would win in a fight between…” arguments. These conversations have been the staple of comic book conversations for as long as I can remember.

If the two parties were from the same publisher you could always cite historical references from earlier years with that publisher. The problem arises when the two parties in the theoretical fight are from different publishers. Since the publishers are competing for a bigger market share, they don’t like to share their characters with other publishers. If you saw crossover events it was usually between different titles under the same publisher…. until recently.

There seem to be a lot of crossover titles between publishers lately. Batman had the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles appear in Gotham. After that the favor was repaid and Batman had a crossover with the Turtles under the IDW imprint. Now the Justice League is crossing over with The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. It seems like DC Comics has learned to play nice and share their characters with the other publishers… and us readers are reaping the benefits.

“Something very, very massive has happened in Angel Grove, in the Power Rangers’ world, and then another massive event sends one of our main characters, Zack, into the Justice League’s world”, said writer, Tom Taylor.

“I can’t tell you too much more, but there’s a bit of conflict, there’s struggle, there’s misunderstanding. Those are classic tropes that you want to see when hero teams that don’t know the other ones are heroes come together. A little bit of miscommunication leads to badness. But eventually, good too! And really it’s just a great opportunity to take these two heroes from two different worlds and bring them together in a way I don’t think anyone could see coming”, Taylor added.

When asked about the villains in the series Taylor responded “Well, we’re definitely going to see Lord Zedd. I can happily tell you that. Lord Zedd will appear in this book. And he is one of the biggest problems. The other big problem is a DC villain who we can’t actually announce yet, but make sure you get issue #2.”

Both publishers, DC Comics and Boom Studios are very excited about this epic crossover. Each company is placing their marquee characters into the other’s universe. We finally get to see what would happen when these two pop culture Goliaths band together to do what they do best, beat bad guys.

“DC and BOOM! Studios teaming up on this crossover is a dream come true for fans of Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Justice League,” said Hank Kanalz, Senior Vice President, Editorial Strategy and Administration, DC Entertainment. “Stories like this are a great way to have that ‘what if’ itch scratched, combining favorite characters from different publishers in epic adventures.”

“Everyone at BOOM! is thrilled to be part of an event of this magnitude,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We have iconic characters meeting for the first time that are beloved the world over! Our imaginations have been racing since the moment this kicked off with our friends at DC and Saban Brands. Get ready…this is one event that’s not to be missed.”

Press Release

Two of comics greatest teams team up for the very first time! Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove! When the Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged, Zack is flung into another universe, where he’s mistaken for a villain by a mysterious masked vigilante. Can the other Power Rangers get to their friend in time to save him from Batman? Co-published with BOOM! Studios.

TNTM: Santa Claus in the comics

First I want to set the record straight.  YES, there is a Santa Claus.  He does deliver toys to all the good girls and boys every year on Christmas Eve.

I can prove this because my presents are always under the tree on Christmas morning.  My second piece of evidence is the cookies and milk I leave out for him are always eaten when I wake up.  The last and strongest piece of evidence I submit to you is every letter I send to Santa NEVER comes back “Return to Sender” or “Undeliverable”.

He must be getting those letters and having the elves make what I ask for so my Christmas is extra special. Now that we have established Santa Claus as a fact, let me delve into the article.

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Sinterklaas, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, or simply Santa is known by people world wide.  Santa Claus is usually depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man.  He is seen wearing a red coat with white fur collar and cuffs, white fur-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots.

Most times he is carrying a bag full of gifts for children. Santa Claus is said to make lists of children throughout the world.  He categorizes them according to their behavior (“good” and “bad”, or “naughty” and “nice”) and delivers presents to all of the well-behaved children in the world on Christmas Eve.

If you were on the naughty list you are more likely to receive a chunk of coal. He has elves making the toys for him in his workshop located at the North Pole.  He delivers the toys in his sleigh pulled by eight reindeer (9 if you count Rudolph).

Saint Nick as a comic book character

Of course a character of this great importance has made his way onto the pages of comic books.  Even with his busy schedule of naughty list checking, toy making, and general jolliness, Santa has crossed over with some of the bigger characters/teams in comics.  Sometimes he is depicted as a jovial old man spreading peace and goodwill.

Other times he is shown as a tyrant forcing his elves and reindeer into working extremely hard for next to nothing.  There are far too many instances of Santa’s appearance in comic books to list here, but I will tell you some of the more popular times he has been in comics.

Santa in Marvel Comics

Nick St. ChristopherSanta has been through a lot in the Marvel Comics Universe. During WWII he was kidnapped by Adolf Hitler to destroy America’s morale.  He was saved by Nick Fury, Captain America, and Bucky Barnes.  Santa saved New York City from a Hitler Clone called the Hate Monger by causing one of the Hate Monger’s pilots to crash into a nuclear bomb. He has used the “naughty or nice” list to become the world’s greatest detective calling himself “Nick St. Christopher”. In this role he aided the She-Hulk in locating evidence for a murder investigation. Nick St. Christopher took a liking to She-Hulk and made a pass at her. Mrs. Claus arrived to stop him.  She also punished She-Hulk by filling her office with reindeer droppings. Before departing, St. Christopher gave She-Hulk a present. He told her to use it on Christmas for something special. She opened the present later when she was stuck in She-Hulk form.  The present allowed her to return to her human form to celebrate a normal Christmas evening with her father, Morris Walters.

Not all of Santa’s Marvel Comics appearances were good.  One year Santa was injured while visiting Latveria.  Victor von Doom (Dr. Doom) decided to replace Santa in delivering toys that year. Doctor Otto Octavius (Doc Ock) once took over Santa’s workshop, imprisoned Claus, and forced his elves to create deadly toys that would be sent out to injure children.  One Christmas, Santa aided the young mutant team Generation X against the youth-abducting Nanny and Orphan Maker.

Santa Infinity GauntletOne Christmas Santa discovered his reindeer were actually shape shifting Skrulls.  This left him with no one to pull his sleigh so he decided to use the Infinity Gauntlet to enable him to deliver all the presents.  The Marvel super-heroes never like anyone to have all six Infinity Gems together.  They were able to get the Infinity Gauntlet away from Santa.  Iron Man ended up saving the day by creating Iron Reindeer to power Santa’s sleigh

The worst Marvel Comics appearance of Santa shows him demoralized by mankind’s lack of faith and belief. Santa sold his entire franchise to Hydra. One of Santa’s elves recruited some of Santa’s helpers to prevent Hydra from ruining Christmas.  These helpers included Howard the Duck, Vito Claus, Bubba Clause, Santa Clara, Claus Tse-Tung, Sanity Claus, and Willy Lumpkin Claus. Howard convinced Santa to renege on his deal with Hydra.  The recruited Santa’s helpers joined forces with Santa and the elves to drive off the Commando Corps of Hydra Accountants.

More recently, Santa has been classified as an Omega Level Mutant.  Omega is the most powerful classification of mutants in the Marvel Universe.  That alone doesn’t mean as much as it seems about half the mutants fall into that classification.  What does hold a lot of weight is Cerebro, the mutant-detecting computer of the X-Men, detected “the most powerful mutant ever registered” in New York’s Rockefeller Center one holiday season. This of course was Santa Claus.  He was also detected by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants who wanted to recruit him.  When the X-men and the Brotherhood both showed up a fight broke out. Santa ended the fight when he briefly transformed the Brotherhood into inanimate toys, teleported the X-Men away, erased both groups’ memories of his involvement, and then gifted the city with snowfall, the first white Christmas in years.

Marvel Comics has given Santa Claus has a number of magical abilities, including longevity, the ability to fit himself and others through any chimney, levitate up a chimney, alter the appearance of himself or other objects or beings (including physically transforming a person into an inanimate object), change the size of other objects, teleport himself and others across the world, generate snow and determine who has been naughty or nice. His normal strength is augmented on Christmas Eve to lift (press) 2 tons. Santa’s full powers are not revealed, though he prefers not to use them in combat or other struggles. While he appears to be a senior, Santa has not physically aged in centuries. Santa Claus has access to a wide range of supernatural artifacts which he uses to accomplish various feats of magic. They also gave Santa some magical equipment.  The reindeer magically enable him to travel across the planet, stopping at most houses along the way, in a single night. His magical sack is actually a Tesseract serving as a portal to a sort of storage dimension.  The sack holds enough presents to supply the entire world in one trip.

In the Marvel Comics Universe, Santa is served by a number of magical elves who construct the toys he gives out. The elves are descended from the Light Elves of Asgard’s Alfheim.  They are resistant to aging and conventional disease. The elf named Sunquist is solar-powered and can animate toys and rearrange matter. In addition, Sunquist is a member of E.L.F., the Elf Labor Federation, which protects elves (an exploited minority).  They offer their services only to the extent that they do not cause humanity to become unduly reliant on elf-kind.

Santa in DC Comics

DC Comics hasn’t used Santa as extensively as Marvel, but he still makes appearances nonetheless.  In the DC Comics Universe Santa lives in The Dreaming.  This is a realm inhabited by the Endless (Dream, Destiny, Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, and Destruction). You might recognize these characters from Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman.  It is reasonable to assume Santa is familiar with all these powerful beings.

DarkseidSanta Claus is no slouch in the powers and abilities area either in DC Comics.  He has extremely high charisma allowing him to engender trust and inspire hope in others.  Two notable exceptions to this power are the Easter Bunny and Lobo ( I’ll explain more on that in a later paragraph).  Santa appears to be virtually immortal.  He has not aged for several centuries.  DC Comics acknowledges Santa has magical abilities, but they haven’t defined the nature of his magic.  His powers are strong enough that he is able to get through the formidable defenses of Apokolips every year to give Darkseid a lump of coal.  These lumps of coal have an emotional effect of damaging confidence, pride, and motivation.He uses his toy bag to hold all the gifts he delivers on Christmas Eve.  It is speculated this toy bag is a trans-dimensional bag of holding. He travels around the world in his gravity defying sleigh pulled by magical flying reindeer.

LoboIn the Lobo: Paramilitary Christmas Special Santa is depicted as a merciless slave owner known as Kris “Crusher” Kringle.  In this story Santa Claus is a brutal dictator who ran an empire out of his stronghold at the North Pole. He maintained an army of elves.  Through a practice of planned malnutrition he was able to keep them short in stature and “fierce as ferrets”. Several years ago one of Crusher Kringle’s primary rivals, the Easter Bunny, hired the intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo to assassinate him. Accepting the Bunny’s payment, Lobo was only too happy to see the job through. He traveled to the North Pole and blazed a bloody trail of destruction as he massacred dozens of elves just to reach Kringle’s throne room. Santa proved to be more than just a fat old man though. The two faced each other in mortal combat. Santa came at Lobo with two sharpened shivs. Lobo defeated Kringle by decapitating him. He then went outside and shot Rudolph. While this account seems incredible at best, Lobo has maintained that it did in fact take place.

This also calls into question if the Easter Bunny has any mutant or magical powers?  I’m sure we will cover that in an article around Easter time.  Most of the characters associated with holidays or fairy tales can be explained by classifying them as a mutant.

Santa in Boom Studios!

KlausBoom Studios went a different route with Santa Claus.  Klaus is set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic.  Klaus tells the story of how Santa Claus really came to be. Where did he begin? What was he like when he was young? Why does he do what he does? How does he do what he does? And what happens when he faces his greatest challenge? Klaus draws on Santa Claus’ wilder roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism. It takes in the creepier side of Christmas with characters like the Krampus.

Klaus is set in Grimsvig, a small town under the thumb of a petty dictator where toys have been outlawed.  Santa is re-envisioned as a crusader against injustice.  He is portrayed as a rough-and-tumble Conan the Barbarian type of superhero. The series draws upon early Viking and Siberian Santa Claus mythology. The comic details Santa’s origin story. It tells how he got his sleigh and other Yuletide accouterments.

Honorable Mentions

santa barbarian

Santa the Barbarian was created by Rob Liefeld with story and art by Dan Fraga.  The name explains it all.  Santa Claus as a barbarian, that’s it. No really, that is literally all there is to it.  The comic displays Santa killing, maiming, and chopping off heads.  To make it even better the elves are cheering him on with chants of “You da man!” Santa depicted as a blood-crazed barbarian killing machine is something that should be in everyone’s stocking on Christmas morning.

An Ultimate Warrior Christmas comic was written by former WWE wrestler Ultimate Warrior.  This comic will leave you with a lot of questions.  The main one is What is wrong with the Ultimate Warrior.  The comic is mostly unsettling pictures of half (or in some instances completely) nude Santa and Ultimate Warrior.  Most of the text is all on a separate non-picture page.  The background of the text pages is so garish and poorly thought out that trying to read them will give you a migraine.

Warrior Unreadable Ultimate Warrior

In the old Hellblazer comics, John Constantine once recovered the bones  of St. Nicholas of Myra (believed to be Santa Claus).  He crushed those bones to dust and got high on the powder.  This bit of Yuletide debauchery is all part of a magic ritual to help Constantine focus his mystical powers.

Action Lab put out a mini-series of comics dealing with the Santa Claus lore. “Sleigher” is This is Spinal Tap meets a Rankin/Bass Christmas special. The ultimate holiday tale for metalheads! Sleigher is the most recent heir of the “Santa Claus” mantle, even if it’s not really his bag. He’d rather slam back bourbon than glasses of milk and blast metal instead of carols. But when a long forgotten member of Santa’s rogues gallery rears his ugly head to reap chaos and destruction, Sleigher may have found his true calling – dishing out a holiday ass whoopin!!!

Nazis

And what Internet article is complete without a Third Reich reference?  AAM/Markovia published the masterpiece “Santa vs. The Nazis”.  In 1941 the Nazis discover Santa Claus’ factory. They enslave the elves, incapacitate Santa, and convert the factory into a factory of war. Two of Santa’s helpers escape to London to brief Winston Churchill.  A commando unit is created and sent to take the factory back.

From all of us at Zia Comics, we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and just an overall enjoyable Holiday Season!

TNTM: Top 10 Comics for October 2016

Marvel Comics managed to gain some spots in the Top 10 for October.

The big surprise is Boom Studios! took the number one spot with “Big Trouble in Little China/Escape From New York #1”.

“The Walking Dead #159” snuck into the last spot on the Top 10.  The remaining 8 spots were split evenly between Marvel and DC.  DC Comics can thank Batman for all 4 of their Top 10 spots.

 Each DC Comic in the Top 10 was related to Bruce Wayne (Dark Knight, Batman, and All-Star Batman).  Marvel had 2 first issues show up on the list with “Champions #1” and “Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #1”.  The other 2 Marvel titles were “Civil War II #6” and “Darth Vader #25”.  Maybe the newness of DC Comics Rebirth is starting to wear off?

TNTM: Justice League / Power Rangers team up

Justice League and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers together

The Justice League seems to be fighting, crossing over, or teaming up with everyone else lately.  You don’t even have to be a DC Comics title.  This January BOOM! Studios and DC Comics will join forces when “Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” arrives in comic stores.

The six issue series will be written by Tom Taylor with art by Stephen Byrne.

The story finds the Black Ranger flung into a reality not his own. The rest of the Power Rangers team must discover a way to find their friend and rescue him from Batman.

Official Press Release

On January 11, two of comics’ greatest teams will combine their powers and abilities for the first time! The Justice League—Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern John Stewart, the Flash and Cyborg—meet Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in a six-issue monthly miniseries from New York Times best-selling writer Tom Taylor (INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US, GREEN LANTERN CORPS: EDGE OF OBLIVION) and artist Stephen Byrne (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA REBIRTH: THE RAY).

“DC and BOOM! Studios teaming up on this crossover is a dream come true for fans of Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Justice League,” said Hank Kanalz, Senior Vice President, Editorial Strategy and Administration, DC Entertainment. “Stories like this are a great way to have that ‘what if’ itch scratched, combining favorite characters from different publishers in epic adventures.”

Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove when the Power Rangers’ Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged! Zack the Black Ranger is flung into an alternate universe full of citizens possessing outrageous powers and wearing strange costumes. Will Jason the Red Ranger, Trini the Yellow Ranger, Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Billy the Blue Ranger and Tommy the Green Ranger be able to get to Zack in time to save him from Batman?

“Everyone at BOOM! is thrilled to be part of an event of this magnitude,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We have iconic characters meeting for the first time that are beloved the world over! Our imaginations have been racing since the moment this kicked off with our friends at DC and Saban Brands. Get ready…this is one event that’s not to be missed.”

In addition to the standard covers drawn by Karl Kerschl (GOTHAM ACADEMY: SECOND SEMESTER), each issue will feature a variant cover drawn by one of comics’ most popular artists, pairing each member of the League with a different Power Ranger:

  • Batman/Pink Ranger by Dan Hipp
  • Cyborg/Blue Ranger by Dustin Nguyen
  • The Flash/Black Ranger by Yasmine Putri
  • Green Lantern John Stewart/Yellow Ranger by Marguerite Sauvage
  • Superman/Green Ranger by Chris Sprouse
  • Wonder Woman/Red Ranger by Marcus To

“With their talented roster of writers and artists, DC and BOOM! Studios bring to life the world’s greatest superheroes, including the iconic Power Rangers,“ said Janet Hsu, CEO at Saban Brands. “With DC, BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands partnering, we will bring fans a legendary crossover that will stand the test of time, just as these historical superheroes have done individually for decades.”
