The Most Strange-erous Game: Predator’s Weirdest Hunting Trips

pred-feat

Aside from their first initial, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Archie Andrews have never had all that much in common. That changed this week, when Dark Horse Comics released Archie Vs. Predator, and the alien big game hunter that menaced a dirty, sweaty, well-muscled cast lead by Schwarzenneger in the 1987 film Predator set his sites on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and their quite killable gang.

In film, Predators have been mostly content to hunt humans, and aliens from the Aliens franchise, across a series of five films — Predator, Predator 2, AVP: Alien Vs. Predator, Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem and Predators — but in comics, they've pursued and usually failed to obtain some pretty exotic skulls.

Many of comics' most popular heroes have been around for decades, and in the case of the big names from the publisher now known as DC Comics, some have been around for a sizable chunk of a century. As these characters passed through the different historical eras known in comics as the Golden Age (the late 1930s through the early 1950s), the Silver Age (the mid 1950s through the late 1960s), the Bronze Age (the early 1970s through the mid 1980s) and on into modern times, they have experienced considerable changes in tone and portrayal that reflect the zeitgeist of the time.

With this new feature we'll help you navigate the very best stories of DC Comics' most beloved characters decade by decade. This week, we're taking a look at Superman.

Comics, Everybody: The History of Supergirl Explained!

Promo

With CBS' Supergirl show in production, it's a great time to talk about the character's convoluted history in the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again and colorist Jordan Gibson are here to educate you about the many iterations of Supergirl, their individual origins, and how they are or aren't related to Superman.

Whether you're new to comics, new to DC's heroes, or a long-time fan looking to re-familiarize yourself with the eccentricities of superhero continuity (or maybe engage in some hardcore nitpicking), we hope you'll enjoy this tribute to the most super girl in the DCU, and her animal boyfriend.

ww-cv41-1-127051

DC Comics' solicitations for June reveal that various members of the Justice League will be getting makeovers, and the new looks include a fully-covered Wonder Woman and a casual Superman.

In an effort to phase out the New 52 branding, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Arrow, and Green Lantern will get new costumes to replace the New 52 threads that they've worn since August 2011. Aside from a mysterious Bat-robot, the redesigns for Wonder Woman and Superman feature the most notable stylistic changes, which I will break down in terms of design and superhero costumes after the cut.

Supershovel00

Listen, February was a pretty rough month. Sure, we're getting into March now and the sun has finally returned to cast its warmth upon our fragile world once again, but for a while there, it was just snow, gloom, and gloomy snow.

Clearly someone had to take a stand and rise up against our natural oppressors, and that person was Lue Nuwame, the Homemade Game Guru, who built a Superman-shaped snow shovel in order to tackle the apocalyptic snowfall that hit Canada this winter. And as weird as it might sound, it's one of the most soothing videos I have ever watched. Let it flow over you like a gentle snowfall, a snowfall that you will eventually dig yourself out of with the help of Superman.

ABC / TriStar

Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles.
