You can always count on a number of surprises from NECA at Toy Fair, but this year, I don't think very many collectors could have expected the announcements the company unveiled. While new Predator and Alien toys are as expected, you never know what the mad geniuses at NECA might have in store for the likes of Evil Dead, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the other dozens of gaming and movie licenses it holds. All you can be sure about is that you will come away from the NECA booth ready to find a new source of income to pay for all the things you're going to need. Like the new Batman vs Aliens and Predator sets.

Koei Tecmo’s mission to introduce new audiences to famous anime series continues with Berserk and The Band of the Hawk, chronicling the life of lone wolf mercenary Guts and his many battles. Berserk is a button masher’s dream, with hordes of enemies on-screen at one time and combo counters reaching into the thousands. For Koei Tecmo and developer Omega Force it’s unfortunately a step backward, as the innovation in movement that came with Attack on Titan has been replaced with the familiar scheme, which is a disappointment.
While capes and cowls dominating the box office is the new phenomenon, video games are no stranger to awesome tales of superheroics. With that in mind, we've scoured the streets of Gotham, taken a double-dose of radiation, and grabbed our shark repellents to put together this list most excelsior list of the 10 Greatest Superhero Games!
For all the delight fans have gotten from Blizzard's Overwatch, there's been very little in the way of collectibles to show your appreciation outside of the game itself. Though a few Funko Pops have made the rounds, and some blind box figures are just now hitting the market, no true action figures from the amazingly designed world of Overwatch have been released. Thankfully, the good people over at Good Smile have managed to ignite hope where once there was none.
Coming this summer will be a Nendoroid based on Overwatch's "mascot" Tracer. The adorable British hero will be bringing her style and charm to the chibi world, and could just be the tip of the Overwatch Nendoroid iceberg.
February has been a good month for Injustice 2 character reveals and gameplay videos. After going virtually radio silent since August, NetherRealm Studios has bestowed video after video, reveal after reveal upon us this month. Given that there's currently a beta going (which we'd love to get into, NetherRealm), it only makes sense the developer would share more information as players got more and more hands-on time with the fighting game sequel.
After announcing Black Canary, Damian Wayne as Robin and Swamp Thing already, a brief spotlight video highlights three more femme fatales from the DC Universe making their appearances in Injustice 2. Catwoman is returning, but she'll be joined by newcomers Poison Ivy and Cheetah to keep the rest of the heroes in check.
Through punchy voice lines, bold designs, and a sparing use of canon lore, Blizzard has crafted Overwatch characters that reach fans in a way that fosters creativity and reinterpretation. A single line reading between characters is enough to send avalanches through Overwatch's vibrant and prolific fan community.
One such member of that community is artist Julia Reck, whose Overwatch Instagram series captures the game's iconic heroes when they're not defending the payload (or, more precisely, when they're not not defending the payload).
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

As we draw closer to the arrival of NetherRealm Studios' Injustice 2, the developer continues teasing us with roster reveals for the upcoming fighting game set in an alternate DC Universe. While to this point we've mostly seen some of the more traditional heroes and villains from the comics make their way into the game, today's announcement came out of left field.
The Guardian of Earth himself, the Swamp Thing, will be joining the fight between Batman and Superman (and Brainiac) this May. Thanks to a new gameplay trailer, we now know how Swamp Thing will attempt to bring green peace to the world of Injustice.
In terms of toys-to-life games, Lego Dimensions might have the best value for money because not only can it keep reaching out to new franchises for that sweet extra content, but you can physically play with the toy and build your game-piece before you sit down with the video game. Next month, the game gets its next big update just in time for the release of The Lego Batman Movie --- plus Michael Knight and KITT join the fray too.
New details and characters for Injustice 2 are flowing like water now that 2017 is picking up steam. After being silent on the game's roster since August of last year, NetherRealm Studios has divulged two new characters for the upcoming fighting sequel in nearly as many weeks. That can only mean even more character announcements are on the way, but I'm getting ahead of myself. First, we've got to talk about Black Canary bringing the noise in the latest gameplay trailer.
