Cast Party: Who Should Play DC Comics’ Legion of Doom?

ElleCollins_CastParty

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.

Our Squad: The DC Supervillain Fantasy Draft, Part One

villaindraft-one

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.

Fantastic Five: The Top Five Gorillas in Comics

ff gorilla

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 five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week we're taking a look at our primate brethren, who were once so popular as a topic in comics that putting a gorilla on a cover could guarantee an increase in sales. Gorillas have worn many hats in comics, both figurative and literal, from hero to villain to valet to secretary. Here are a few of the very best.

The ‘Batman Unlimited’ Animated Movie Has A Robot Panther That Turns Into A Motorcycle So Things Are Looking Up

BatmanUnlimited01

If you're like me and you make a point of checking for new Batman toys every time you're in a store with a toy aisle, then you may already be familiar with Batman Unlimited. The line's been kicking around for a few years, but now it seems like DC is releasing a new direct-to-video feature that ties in.

On the one hand, I'm not a big fan of the designs that they're going with for the movie -- like the figures, they boast a version of the bat-symbol that seems slightly off-model and give Batman's cowl a weird chinstrap that looks like a blue soul patch. On the other hand, this is a movie that has Batman riding around on a robot panther that turns into a motorcycle, and that's basically amazing. Give it a watch for yourself.

Comics Alliance Presents Here’s The Thing, Episode 7: Viewer Mail Lightning Round!

Here's The Thing with Chris Sims

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.

This week, Chris is in his (extremely cluttered) office, making up for lost time and a lost video by taking your viewer questions! Topics discussed include Gorilla Grodd, overlooked crossovers, controversial opinions on Sonic the Hedgehog, and why Street Fighter II has better characters than most other things.
