It's inspired cosplayers and artists alike, and hangs in pride of place on many comic fans' walls, yet Adam Hughes' Real Power of the DC Universe poster was originally just a giveaway at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2008. Recreating a high glamour photo shoot with DC's biggest female heroes (and anti-heroes), including Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Power Girl, Supergirl, Batwoman, and Oracle, the poster is both a great piece of work and a wonderful tribute to these powerful characters.

The poster has become a truly iconic image over the past few years, so we reached out to Hughes to find out the story behind its creation, and to learn about the choices he made --- including why Catwoman is in a black dress!

Will Mehcad Brooks’ Jimmy Olsen Be A Love Interest For TV’s Supergirl? (Or Will She Date A Horse?)

Mehcad Brooks

Good news this week for fans of ComicsAlliance's officially ranked Third Greatest Comic Book Character Of All Time: Mehcad Brooks has been cast in the role of Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen in CBS's upcoming Supergirl show, meaning that the long national nightmare of Olsen-free television that we have suffered since 2009, when Jimmy was killed off on the 8th season finale of Smallville, is finally over.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooks's Olsen will be joining the ranks of other established comic book characters like the Toyman and -- no kidding -- Cyborg Superman in the cast, and will be featured on the increasingly bizarre-sounding show as a photographer at CatCo, a media company in National City founded by Cat Grant, where Supergirl works in her civilian identity, when she's not involved in what has been described as a crime procedural. Also included in the announcement, though, was the idea that Kara will have a crush on him, hinting at a relationship between the two characters.

The Complete Batgirl and Supergirl Christmas Comics By Mike Maihack

SB00

I'm going to go out on a festively decorated limb here and guess that you are, of course, already familiar with Mike Maihack's fantastic and adorable Batgirl/Supergirl strips. He's been doing them for a few years now, chronicling the perky, cheerful Kryptonian heroine, the slightly grumpier Gotham City vigilante, and their continuing adventures as best friends.

They're all pretty great, but my favorites by far are the annual Christmas specials. This year, though, they're even more special than usual, as Batgirl and Supergirl are joined by a special guest star for an evening of caroling in exchange for candy. It's a Christmas Miracle!
