With DC’s rebirth now in full-effect and the pre-“Flashpoint” Superman taking his place at the forefront of the DC Universe, the New 52 Superman appears to be well and truly dead, never to return.
Despite my criticisms of DC’s treatment of Superman since 2011 this iteration of the character has … Continue Reading
It’s a bit of a chore separating the wheat from the chaff, the fact from the rumour and the official from the speculation when it comes to the Justice League news. In my first article I tried to pare away as much rumour and speculation as I could but as … Continue Reading
