Episode 257- Man of Steel

superman-unboundThis past week we saw the release of the latest DC Animated Direct to Home Theater release “Superman Unbound”. This release is based on the Superman: Brainiac storyline in Action Comics #866-870 by Geoff Johns. Earth is visited by one of Brainiac’s probes that is searching for suitable candidates for Brainiac to archive their knowledge, shrink a city to store it, and then destroy the planet. Supergirl then tells Kal-El after the battle that she knows the probe and Brianiac, it had visited Krypton before it was destroyed and it took the city of Kandor. Her fears that this will happen to Earth, specifically to Metropolis, causes Superman to venture into space to find and confront Brainiac before he comes to Earth. As expected, Brainiac does arrive on Earth, many battle take place, and finally Superman is victorious.

81BChoStoTL._SL1272_The DC Comics Deck-Building Game by Cryptozoic Games is a card game based on the recent DC Comics New 52 Reboot. In the game, each player randomly plays as one of the founding members of the Justice League (Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Cyborg). The different starting heroes have different in game bonuses. Each player takes turns building up their own deck from the central deck using power points. Players buy super powers, equipment, and even use their power points to defeat (buy) villains and super villains which then can be used as either power points to purchase more items and powers or to attack other players. The games continues until either the central deck is empty or all the super villains are defeated. The player with the most victory points is the winner. (more…)

This week Chris, Kahn, and Ford are joined by guest host Nickie as the talk about geek news, this week in comics, and discuss the first part of a pretty big topic; the successful and not so successful transition from comic books to television series.
