TNTM: DC Comics Action Comics #982 review

The Superman character under the DC Comics Rebirth initiative has been surprisingly good. Just recently the New 52 Superman and the pre-Flashpoint Superman & Lois Lane were merged. This merge was done by the pre-Flashpoint Jonathan Kent (Superman & Lois’s son). Now they are teasing that Superman has something to do with the Doomsday Clock one-shot coming up in November. Lots of things affecting the DC Comics Universe seem to hinge on this character.

**Warning- spoilers may follow**

Between now and November there is a lot of things happening to Superman. In Action Comics #982 we see Superman’s rogues gallery banding together to defeat the Kryptonian. General Zod leads this group of Superman foes (Eradicator, Blanque, Cyborg Superman, Metallo, Mongul) to the front door of the fortress of solitude.

Superman tunnels underground and up into the middle of his group of adversaries in order to give Lois and Jonathan time to escape. Superman has been weakened from his recent time in the Black Vault. The villains are in the midst of an epic beat down of Superman when a group of Superman’s friends show up to save him.

The group of Superman’s friends is made up of his cousin Supergirl, Steel, Superwoman, and Kenan Kong the New Super-man. The most surprising member of this group is Lex Luthor. It seems Lex has done a complete turn around from villain to hero.

Action Comics #983 should be true to it’s name and be chock full of superhero fighting action. Seeing these 2 obscenely overpowered groups going toe to toe should be crazy.

TNTM: Mxyzptlk comes to Supergirl on the CW

Who is Mxyzptlk?

Mister Mxyzptlk is an impish character who appears in Superman comic books. He is a sorcerer from the fifth dimensions who has a penchant for playing pranks on Superman.

His first appearance was in Superman #30 (Sept. 1944) in the story “The Mysterious Mr. Mxyztplk”. He is portrayed as a small bald man typically wearing a bowler hat.

His powers in our dimension are nearly limitless. He can only be stopped by tricking him into saying or spelling his own name backwards. Doing this will return him to his home in the fifth dimension. Once he is returned he must stay for a minimum of 90 days. He also cannot stand being ridiculed.

Mxyzptlk on Supergirl

It has been announced that the Supergirl TV series on the CW will be bringing the character into the show. Peter Gadiot has been cast as the mischievous imp. It seems that Mxysptlk has a fondness for Kryptonians other than Superman. It has not been said whether the character will resemble the comic book version or is they will re-imagine him more normal in appearance to help alleviate special effects costs.

TNTM: Supergirl getting her own DC Comics title

If you’ve been enjoying the Supergirl TV series you’re in luck.  DC Comics is launching a Supergirl Rebirth one shot and a Supergirl recurring title.

I watched Supergirl (originally on CBS and now moved to the CW) fully expecting to not like it.  After a few episodes I found myself moving it up on my DVR priority list.  I was looking forward to seeing Kara save National City each week while maintaining her secret identity.  There were a lot of great super-hero/villain cameos, but not so many that it felt overdone.

A lot of the name dropping and easter eggs were not apparent to folks without a comic book background.

I have high hopes the comic is as successful as the TV show.  I will definitely be picking it up off the shelf and giving it a read.  I hope you do the same.
