TNTM: DC Comics Superman – Red Son to be adapted for animated movie

In 2003 DC Comics published Superman: Red Son under their ElseWorlds imprint.  Red Son is set in a world where Superman’s rocket ship lands on a Ukrainian collective farm rather than in Kansas.

Instead of fighting for “Truth, Justice, and the American Way”, Soviet radio broadcasts describe Superman as “The Champion of the common worker who fights a never ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact.”

The Ukranian landing of Superman goes about changing the course of history, as well as other superheroes.

Red Son has always been one of my top 5 Superman stories.  I am happy to see it finally making the leap from page to screen, even if only in animation.  Warner Bros. announced the feature was being planned for a release in the spring of 2020.

There was no mention of who specifically would be involved in the making of the film.  The Eisner nominated series has long been a popular alternate reality tale and has been featured in DC’s restructured multiverse.

TNTM: Batman Who Laughs infecting the DC Universe

Batman Who Laughs instantly became a fan favorite character ever since his first appearance in Dark Nights Metal #2/Teen Titans #12 (they both came out the same week).

We won’t count Dark Days: The Casting #1 since it was just an ad and not part of the story-line.  The creator/writer, Scott Snyder, says the first appearance is Dark Nights Metal #2 since those events occur before the events depicted in Teen Titans #12.  Either book is highly sought after due to the Batman Who Laughs appearance.

For those not in the know, let me explain just Batman Who Laughs.  The Batman Who Laughs is a version of Batman from Earth 22.  In that part of the Multiverse Joker learned Bruce Wayne is actually Batman.  He killed Commissioner Gordon and most of Batman’s villains. Joker then subjected Gotham to the chemicals that transformed him, much like the plot of the original Keaton Batman movie.

Batman fought and killed the Joker, but was exposed to a purified form of the chemicals as a result.  Those chemicals gradually turned him into a new Joker.  By the time Batman figured out what was happening, the process was irreversible. He thus became The Batman Who Laughs.  He killed most of his allies and turned his son, Damian, into a mini-Joker. The Batman Who Laughs becomes a follower of Barbatos and helps in his attempt to take over Prime-Earth (our part of the Multiverse).

The Batman Who Laughs is presumed dead after a battle with Prime-Earth Batman and Joker.  The new teaser for Batman/Superman #1 shows us he is not only alive, but deep into another plan to take over Prime-Earth.  The teaser graphic asks “Who are the Infected?”  It appears he is infecting our superheroes with his Joker chemicals and using them as pawns.  The Year of the Villain initiative is focusing heavily on Batman Who Laughs.  I, for one, couldn’t be happier.

DC’s Year Of The Villain #1 kicked off with a 32-page one-shot. It leads into to some of the biggest story arcs that make up Year of the Villain, with stories by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, plus details on Snyder’s The Batman Who Laughs, Tom King’s “City of Bane” story arc in Batman and the recently announced Batman/Superman by Joshua Williamson and David Marquez.

Joshua Williamson and David Marquez’s Batman/Superman #1 goes on sale August 28.

Official Description

The first arc of Batman/Superman will follow the two titular heroes as they hunt down six infected heroes in the DCU—people revealed to be infected by the Batman Who Laughs with a deadly pathogen that violently transforms them into the evilest versions of themselves. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel must journey into the depths of Gotham City to learn which of their fellow heroes has been transformed into the horrifying horseman of their most dangerous and deranged foe ever.

But who are the Infected? Fans have already been shown a sneak preview of Batman/Superman #1, revealing that The Batman Who Laughs’ plot is bigger than either the Caped Crusader or the Man of Steel realized and showing the devious killer’s first sentinel: a jacked-up, Dark Multiverse-infected Shazam! Who else has been targeted for similar transformations?

Video+Story – TNTM: Brian Michael Bendis exclusive to DC Comics

Brian Michael Bendis has been synonymous with Marvel for a couple of decades. He is one of the main architects of the Ultimate Universe in Marvel. His work on Daredevil and Avengers are still regarded as some of the best for those titles.

Then in 2017 it was announced he would be exclusive to DC Comics. DC Comics offered Bendis any character in their stables to mold into his own. Most people believed he would take the helm on Batman, but to everyone’s surprise he chose Superman.

This all coincides with the 80th anniversary of Clark Kent/Superman. DC launched big into the Bendis era with the milestone issue Action Comics #1000. It is an over-sized issue with multiple stories. The Bendis story introduces a new villain character and a possible new explanation for the demise of Krypton. It also had multiple variant covers representing the different decades Superman has been published.

The stories in Action Comics #1000 are all good in their own right. Many of them tug at your heart-strings while others explore different aspects of Superman’s character. Overall it is a great book and an awesome introduction the the Bendis era of Superman.

I’ve always had a tough time warming up to Superman. I prefer my characters to display some kind of flaw or downfall. It is easier for me to relate to those type of characters. I am hoping Bendis is able to write Superman to have some kind of connection to normal every day people. He has worked magic before. I hope he has a little bit left for Superman.

TNTM: DC Comics Sanctuary title will explore Superhero PTSD

We love to see our action heroes duking it out with their arch-nemesis. The bigger the battle, the more we like it. What we don’t typically think about is the mental affect this has on the superhero. Constantly fighting for your life can take a toll on your psyche. DC Comics and Tom King are tackling this subject with their new upcoming title, Sanctuary.

At the DC in DC convention, King revealed that he will be taking the writing lead on this new initiative. There isn’t much more information on the title. We don’t know if it will be an ongoing series, a limited series, or a lead-in to a bigger event.

According to King Sanctuary will follow crisis centers in the DC universe designed for superheroes to come and discuss the personal and psychological effects of a career in crime-fighting. King had this to say at a panel discussing PTSD and trauma in comics and comics writing:

The DCU has a bunch of superheroes and all they do is fight, every time, and that must have a psychological effect on them, right? You can’t live a life of violence and not feel that violence deep in your heart—and we also have a group of superheroes, the Trinity, who care about these other heroes.

They sort of feel like parental figures, the foundation that stands beneath them. And they care about them for two reasons: one, because they’re good people, but two, if superheroes feel trauma and it drives them a little mad, that’s a danger. So, as both a practical and a compassionate matter, they’ve set up something called Sanctuary, which is a place that you can go, modeled on veterans’ crisis centers—which is an interesting name for them—and talk about this trauma and admit that this had an effect on you; where you can admit that being a superhero and seeing a life of violence and seeing people get hurt around you, that that has some sort of impact on you—and Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman can help you.

I like the series that let us have a glimpse into our favorite superheroes personal life. Knowing they have the same fears, frailties, self-doubts as everyone else humanizes them to the reader.

There are also readers that don’t want to see their favorite characters vulnerable. They want to look at the superheroes as something to strive for.

Either way, Sanctuary is a great story concept. Tom King has proven he can write complex stories well. We are in for one heckuva ride.

VIDEO – TNTM: DC Comics Doomsday Clock #2 Speculations

DC Comics seems to be making all the right moves since Rebirth. Their comics all seem to work well with each other in the same timeline. Even the big events aren’t stepping on each other.

We have Batman going through some serious stuff in Dark Nights Metal and Superman is gonna be pitted against Dr. Manhattan in Doomsday Clock.

In Doomsday Clock #2 they have shown Rorschach walking around inside the Batcave. They’ve also shown Batman holding Rorschach’s journal.

We have seen Ozymandias in person and they’ve hinted strongly at Dr. Manhattan. We are being introduced to a lot of the Watchmen characters. Geoff Johns has 12 issues to bring this story to completion.

What happens in Doomsday Clock will surely shake the foundations of the DC Universe.

Video – TNTM: DC Comics Justice League Movie Review

Jack and I watched the Justice League movie at Alamo Drafthouse in El Paso. We both LOVED! the movie. All the characters got their time in the spotlight. The actors really brought those characters to life. You really connected with each and every one of them.

The villain was very formidable. There were times when he appeared to be unstoppable.

The best part of the movie for me was when they brought Superman back from the dead. They actually gave him some good dialogue this time. He was more than a one dimensional boy scout type character. I am super glad they let him display a full range of emotions, including humor.

The main complaint from the critics is the CGI. Honestly, it wasn’t the best CGI work, but it in no way distracted from the story. The pacing and character development was on point. You are too involved in the story arc to think about CGI for more than a few seconds.

Like I said, we both thoroughly enjoyed the movie. You don’t have to take our word for it though. We asked some of our fellow movie-goers what they thought of the movie and they overwhelmingly agreed with us. If you want to see a good DC Comics superhero movie that is as good as, if not better than Wonder Woman, then go see Justice League. We recommend seeing it at the Alamo Drafthouse with a bowl of bottomless popcorn!

TNTM: DC Comics Action Comics #987 and #988

DC Comics has been introducing lots of questions in their Rebirth initiative. Ever since Rebirth kicked off in May 2016 there have been hints of the Watchmen being pulled into the DC Comics Universe. We are just starting to see answers to our questions. Some of these answers have been in front of our face for some time.

Action Comics #987 and #988 is being solicited as telling us exactly who is the person behind the mysterious Mr. Oz. Both of these issues will have lenticular covers. If you are unfamiliar with what a lenticular cover is, it will show one picture when viewed at a particular angle and another picture when tilted at the opposite angle.

The solicited lenticular cover shows Superman’s biological father, Jor-El, on Krypton as it is about to explode. When you tilt it you notice a blue light engulfing Jor-El and saving him from destruction. This is causing lots of readers to speculate Mr. Oz is actually Jor-El. This would explain his infatuation and near obsession with Clark Kent’s life in Rebirth.

Do you believe Mr. Oz is actually Jor-El? If not, who do you think Mr. Oz actually is? Let us know in the comments.
