Well We’re Living Here in Alan-town: DC Reintroduces Alan Scott

In the pages of Earth Two, DC'S alternate reality where Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman were all killed off in the first issue, Alan Scott as Green Lantern is one of the leading heroes of the Justice Society.

Marvel’s Risk = DC’s Gain: The Rocky Road to a Justice League Movie

  On the eve of The Avengers American release (there will be a review up probably on Monday), I thought it might be worth examining what Marvel’s experiment means for future superhero movies. Released last Friday in the UK, The Avengers has already surpassed it’s $220 million budget, with [...]

In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night…

Welcome to Mercy Reef

Originally Posted June 20th, 2010 The comic book universe is full of amazing heroes and villains all engaged in do or die battles that challenge heroes both physically and mentally. But not all heroes seem to make the cut of admirable paragons of justice. In fact, some of them are downright [...]

Holy Trilogy Batman!
