Listen, it's hard for me to get excited when comic book characters I love show up in mass media. I mean, I saw a movie this summer that just threw a hundred foot-tall, Jack Kirby-designed Exitar the Exterminator into a cameo for giggles, so just hearing a name that I recognize isn't enough anymore. In other words, I'm jaded as heck. Or at least I thought I was, until I found out that Carrie Kelly is going to show up in next week's episode of Teen Titans Go! and promptly lost my sugar.
If you've been following the show, and you should be, you may have notice that the Titans are actually pretty lazy and very rarely do any actual crimefighting, which is probably why Robin has another team made entirely of Robins.
Welcome back to Up To Speed, home of the the Flashest Recaps Alive. Here we’ll recap the episodes, dispense some Flash Facts and talk about what works, what doesn’t and where the series might be headed, as we try and keep up with the adventures of Central City’s finest hero, Barry Allen: The Artist Formerly Known As The Flash.
This week, we’re looking at the seventh episode episode of the first season, “Power Outage,” which features a guy with zap-hands looking for revenge, a Time Lord with Asperger’s, and a cop hopped up on goofballs. Hold on to your butts, cuz things are about to get zaptastic.
The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman '66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.
This week, the guide begins with the pilot episode, "Hi Diddle Riddle," in which the Prince of Puzzles has given up his life of crime... or has he?
For those of you who don't devote at least a half hour a week to the adventures of Teenagers With Attitude, Power Rangers Super Megaforce is the latest series in the long-running franchise, built around the core idea of the current rangers teaming up with the previous heroes from the past 20 years of the franchise. As you might expect, there's been a lot there for adults who grew up with the Power Rangers (ie, me), and this Saturday on the show's series finale, they're dropping the biggest nostalgia bomb of all: Jason David Frank's return as Tommy Oliver, the original Green Power Ranger.
And he's not alone, either. As revealed in a clip from the final episode, he's joined by Rangers from 2001's Power Rangers Time Force, 1999's Lost Galaxy, 1998's In Space, 2000's Lightspeed Rescue and 2012's Super Samurai. It's a lot of dang Power Rangers, folks.
The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson is back for the third season of the popular series in our recap feature we’re officially dubbing Pointed Commentary.
This week: Arrow gets stalked, Felicity Smoak and Ray Palmer make something of a love connection, and 'Arrow' gets its Poochie.
Welcome back to Up To Speed, home of the the Flashest Recaps Alive. Here we’ll recap the episodes, dispense some Flash Facts and talk about what works, what doesn’t and where the series might be headed, as we try and keep up with the adventures of Central City’s finest hero, Barry Allen: The Flash dundundundundundun–AH-AAAAAH!–Defender of the Universe!
This week, we’re looking at the sixth episode episode of the first season, “The Flash Is Born,” which features a greasy hunk in muscle shirts, guys being dudes, and a karate robot. On your marks, get set, GOOOOO!
Last week's Agents of SHIELD was a mixed bag, presenting the second season at its weakest as it revisited those malingering season one plot threads, but with the promise of something a lot stronger in our first (holographic) look at the Inhuman city of Attilan (maybe). This week, we find out if the show intends to grab hold of that exciting new 'secret city' storyline with both hands, or if it's just going stick it in a drawer for the rest of the season while Skye moans about her dad.
'The Things We Bury' is directed by Milan Cheylov and written by DJ Doyle, and it features at least one welcome return cameo, and a villainpalooza thanks to Reed Diamond, Kyle MacLachlan, and Tim DeKay. So let's break it all down in our unique 'SHLEID' recap format.
From 1992 to 1997, the X-Men animated series aired on Fox, giving Marvel Comics in all their convoluted, continuity-heavy glory a foothold in mass media and giving a generation of fans a window into one of the hottest comics ever at the peak of its popularity. From bizarre adaptations of key X-Men storylines to faithful adapations of some of the weirdest and most complex stories the merry mutants had to offer, it was one of the most important comics-based television shows of all time, which is why we've dedicated this time every week to an in-depth guide to every single episode of the series.
This week, that episode guide finally comes to an end with "Graduation Day," where mutant rebellion sweeps the globe, and An X-Man Dies! Sort of!
As part of their year-long celebration of Batman's 75th Anniversary, Mondo has produced an art show, posters, and a truly beautiful soundtrack album that sold out of all five designs at San Diego, and now, they're giving me the most compelling reason yet to get into vinyl: a die-cut single of Danny Elfman's theme from Batman: The Animated Series. I definitely do not need this because I don't even own a record player, but y'all... it's shaped like a bat. How can I not get this?
