Justice League War – Trailer

The world’s finest heroes found the Justice League in order to stop an alien invasion of Earth.

Another Movie from DC Comics which looks dark and fun, this time around Apokolips attacks earth and this Justice League is based on the new “52” comics which I am loving. Lets see how this movie will turn out, its going to be released in early 2014, I hope DC Comics keeps this animated movies coming I am enjoying them very much.

Review: Justice League Crisis On Two Earths

A heroic version of Lex Luthor from an alternate universe appears to recruit the Justice League to help save his Earth from the Crime Syndicate, an evil version of the League. What ensues is the ultimate battle of good versus evil in a war that threatens both planets and, through a devious plan launched by Batman’s counterpart Owlman, puts the balance of all existence in peril.

I read the novels of Crisis On Two Earths, Infinite Crisis, and 52 which are all put together from the original comic stories. So the I knew the premise of this animated movie and I had high expectations. The look and feel of the characters is somewhat built on the animated show Justice League and Justice League Unlimited which looks very nice but I wanted more for an animated movie such as this. There is so much to this story they had a lot that they can work with but they took a bit a simpler route since the story could get real complex. The action was fast paced and lots of fun, it wasn’t what I expecting but some good twists and great fight scenes. Its always fun to see how different super heroes fight, and for an animated movie its pretty good but could have been much better.

Review: Infinite Crisis – Greg Cox

The world is falling apart around its greatest heroes. Batman’s paranoia has led him to create a supercomputer that has rebelled against him, threatening the entire world. Wonder Woman has slain a former ally to save the life of another. And Superman has lost his ability to lead, lost their faith, and lost his faith in himself. Four separate crises are converging, and the only hope for the entire Earth is that their champions conquer themselves and learn how to be heroes again.

This is a bit confusing if you aren’t a fan of the DC Comics Universe, or DC Comics for that matter. I have taken the books completely out of order, it was by luck that I picked up this book. I do enjoy reading comics turned into novels, the one thing about this book though is that you have to be somewhat familiar with DC Comic characters but the one thing that Greg Cox does amazingly is give you a portal into the minds of the heroes, the world is falling apart and they are all trying to figure out their way. I found “52” novel first which is book 3 of 3, then I read “Crisis” which is book 1 of 3, then this “Infinite Crisis” book 2 of 3 so I had a very odd or different perspective when reading through this novel. But when I read it, it made me visualize each character and try to image those who I didn’t remember and I just can’t seem to get enough of it, I hope for novels such as these from DC Comics, if you are a comic book fan then this is a must.

Review: Wonder Woman

wonderwoman09

From the origins of Wonder Woman and how she came to the land of man. Living on the Island Paradise of Themyscira where no man is allowed and Hates the God of War is imprisoned for life for his atrocities against man. Its a story some are familiar with but if you are not, its very easy and fun to follow. How these woman trained all their lives to be strong, how Diana became Wonder Woman, and how she moved to the land of man. An action packed animated movie which keeps you tied to the movie. DC Universe has been producing some very nice animated movies and this is one of them, if you like these sort of movies, then this is really worth watching.

Review: 52: The Novel – Greg Cox

The comic story turned into a novel with the most enticing story, multiple plots running parallel with superheroes trying to find their way again after the last catastrophe. Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman are no where to be found and the Justice League is only a semblance of what it once was. There are still many heroes left but can they hold out on their own. Something is brewing between Gotham, Metropolis, and the other cities while people are left picking up the pieces. You get drawn into multiple stories slowly building up, the look, feel, and familiarity of the comic characters is brilliant. It feels like I know all of them and their habits, and the build up just keeps getting better. As things progress you get hints of what 52 is, and ideas start patching together, but I won’t spoil the story. The best part is the amazing satisfaction from this book, and you get some completed stories but you are still left wanting more. I haven’t finished a book so quick such as this and at the same time hated finishing it. An amazing novel which any comic lover would adore, and keeps you turning the pages.
