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.
On this week's show, a viewer asks Chris to explain Hawkman and ends up sparking a journey through one of the most complicated histories in comics, trying to answer one simple question: Why isn't a dude who fights dinosaurs with a mace while not wearing a shirt the coolest guy ever?
If you had a hard time liking the cocky, full-of-himself version of Oliver Queen that's been trotting around the DC Universe since the start of the New 52, take comfort. New writer Green Arrow writer Jeff Lemire -- of Animal Man, Sweet Tooth, Essex County and Best-of-the-Year book Underwater Welder-- felt the same way.
Mattel's DC Universe Classics brand has been relegated from retail to the pricier Mattycollector subscription service, but plenty of compatible 6" superhero figures will continue to roll out in stores via the rebranded DC Unlimited and Batman Unlimited lines in early 2013.

DC Comics announced on Friday that Rob Liefeld will be taking over three New 52 titles beginning in May: Deathstroke, which he will write and draw, replacing both writer Kyle Higgins and artist Joe Bennett; The Savage Hawkman, which he will plot, presumably replacing current writer Tony Daniel; and Grifter, which he will also plot, presumably replacing Nathan Edmondson.
This news comes after Liefeld's having replaced Sterling Gates as the writer of Hawk & Dove, which itself was one of the six New 52 titles conformed for cancelation e
Who's the most normal member of Batman's vast supporting cast? Well, even during the most bizarre years of Batman's career -- the age of Bat-Mite and Bat-Hound, the Zebra Batman, King Batman the First, Rip van Batman, and travels to alien worlds and different eras in time -- at least one element of the Batman comic books remained relatively Earthbound: Batman's pal Commissioner James Gordon. Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson were zipping around the world
Green Lantern is the latest comic book character to become the basis of a major motion picture, and his colleagues in the superhero community quite naturally wanted to take the famous space cop out to celebrate. But with so many deserving super
