Suicide_Squad_Vol_1_1These 8 people will put their lives on the line for our country. One of them won’t be coming home!  Sounds ominous , doesn’t it?  Those words were written on the cover of February 1987′s Suicide Squad # 1!

The 1987 version of Suicide Squad took a unique idea a team of super villains undertaking missions for the US Government, that was full of potential.

Whereas MOST super teams had someone ” behind the scenes “,  The Avengers had Jarvis, and the Outsiders had Dr. Helga Jace  (at least, until the Millenium miniseries). The Suicide Squad had an entire GROUND CREW to give them support.  There were mechanics, a pilot, and a small team of mental health professionals to handle the Squad’s functions.

The Squad’s headquarters was not in a cave , or a satellite 22,300 miles above the Earth . The Squad’s base of operations was a PRISON — Belle Reve. And, unlike other super groups, the Suicide Squad was made up of mostly criminals.

    admin-ajax.phpWe are actually half way through March, but the numbers came out late so I’m just now getting to this column.

    When I first pulled up the stats I was thinking WOW this doesn’t look so good, I mean when you see the comparisons you ‘re going to say WOW, this doesn’t look so good. Then I looked back over the last 4 years of this column (one year at a different site) and found out February has been a historically bad month for comic books. I know it’s hard to believe, but comics in February and then again in June take a nose dive every year.

    So with that put away, I started looking at what is what with DC, and that remains a NOT good thing. You will see in the Big 2 part of the column that DC is making little to no head way against Marvel and in one key category has fallen a little bit more.

    It can’t be all bad is what I was thinking going into the Indie, and here I was finally pleasantly surprised. When you get to the Indies portion you will see what I mean.

    So with all that gibberish out of the way, lets get started.

      Tele-Bug Times

      As the football season kicks-off, or ends, or merely continues to pick up the pace (depending on which part of the world you live in), the time of year has arrived again for something else to start on TV – Fall TV season has begun and in 2013 it’s a doozy!

      I regularly sit and talk to my friends about how now is a great time to be a science fiction, fantasy or horror fan. OK, while we still seem to be snubbed by the Academy (rarely do genre movies pick up any awards) this has not stemmed the out put by the networks. While summer blockbusters at the

      Silver Screen notably often include giant robots smashing the crap out of each other, starships battling alien adversaries, comic book heroes clashing or ghosts and goblins making a nuisance of themselves, the smaller screen has ALWAYS been the place for us geeks and nerds to really find our home.

      The rise  of genre TV has definitely been influenced by the cinema as countless superhero shows are commissioned while others look to classic movies to reboot popular characters and look deeper into the events that defined them.

        batmansupermanThe news that came from San Diego Comic Con this year wasn’t exceptionally forthcoming but one thing that definitely started fans chattering is the semi-announcement of a Batman/Superman movie.

        There wasn’t an official, hey we’re definitely making a Batman and Superman team up movie, but some dialogue was read and a logo was revealed.

        This is just enough information to get plenty of speculators speculating.

         

        Zack Snyder revealed that he is definitely making another Superman movie and then he had Harry Lennix read this, I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you.” This is dialogue from Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” and it’s Batman speaking to Superman. Snyder confirmed that the movie will not be an adaptation of “The Dark Knight Returns”, but gave several clues that Batman and Superman won’t be chilling with a cold beer together.

          tumblr_mli3sxw1LS1rr0x4wo1_500The future, past and present timelines of the DC Universe are in the hands of The Fastest Man Alive!

          In Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, adapted from Geoff Johns’ critically acclaimed Flashpoint miniseries that launched the New 52, Barry Allen wakes up in a drastically different world. His arch-nemesis, Reverse-Flash has changed the timeline, altering the lives of his fellow Leaguers and completely wiping The Flash out of existence!

          Featuring the voices of Nathan Fillion, Ron Perlman, Justin Chambers, Kevin Conroy, Michael B. Jordan, Dana Delany and Carey Elwes comes this all-new animated film that carries on DC Comics’ streak of quality animated features.
