This week I'm doing something a little different. With the DC movie universe expanding, all the talk about Suicide Squad, and the recent announcement that Black Manta will be in the Aquaman movie, I've been thinking about the future of DC supervillains on screen.
We've also been doing this fun DC Supervillain Draft, and that's got me thinking in particular about the Legion of Doom, who originated in the Challenge of the Superfriends cartoon, and what an interesting collection of classic DC villains they are. So I decided to cast the Legion of Doom.
The Suicide Squad movie has brought some of DC's weirdest villains to the big screen even before some of the publisher's major heroes could make their debut, and judging by the movie's huge opening weekend, audiences are only too happy to meet the bad guys.
Of course, there are enough great DC supervillains to fill Belle Reve Prison several times over; many more than we might ever meet at the movie theatre. So for ComicsAlliance's third fantasy superteam draft, following on from our fantasy X-Men teams and our fantasy LGBTQ teams, we've asked our contributors to fight it out to put together the best DC supervillain teams, drawing only from the main line DC comics continuities.
If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of ten. And since there's no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we're taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Ten Lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week, with the help of CA contributor Benito Cereno, we're bringing you the ten best Superman creations of the best Superman writer ever, Otto Binder. From Krypto to Supergirl and even all the way to Lucy Lane, they're all here!
Artist Phil Postma, who recently brought his toon style to a September variant cover on IDW's Judge Dredd series, has posted a series of images to his blog of some sadly fictional cerealsSuperman fans may soon be clamoring to make real. Cereal manufacturers Kellogg's, General Mills and Post will want to pay heed, too, as the artist's design work stands head and shoulders above most super market aisle fair. Most CA readers probably couldn't walk past boxes bearing these designs without filling a shopping cart... or three.
Sometimes, people have to learn their lessons the hard way. Don't touch a hot stove. Mess with the cat and you'll get the claws. Green guys with glowing armor and tubes coming out of their heads can dish out some nasty beatings...
From Superman vs. The Elite to the recently-released The Dark Knight Returns Part 2, Warner Bros. Animation has been making it a priority to translate contemporary DC Comics storylines to the small screen the past few years and its looks like they will be keeping that ball rolling with their next film, Superman Unbound, inspired by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's 2008 Action Comics run...
Where next for Warner Bros' animated adaptations of DC Comics' storylines after this month's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2? Up, up and away, apparently, as White Collar's Matt Bomer voices the Man of Steel for this Spring's Superman: Unbound...
As tyrannical reigns go, Brainiac's had a solid run over the past year+ in Sony's DC Universe Online MMO. The evil alien artificial intelligence stole superpowers, bottled cities, and caused all kinds of headaches for heroes and villains alike...
