    Susana Polo — Editor at Large

    Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy).

  4. DC Universe Mainstay Clancy Brown Joins The Flash as General Wade Eiling

    Maybe he and The Flash will swap bodies?

    Clancy Brown is one of those actors who's as prolific in the flesh as he is through voice acting alone, with credits in Bad Boys, E.R.The Shawshank Redemption, and Highlander, as well as SpongeBob Squarepants, Avatar, and the DC Animated Universe shows.

    What is this, a movie for ANTS?

    With the news out of Comic Con that Marvel's Ant-Man adaptation will be establishing the only female founding member of the Avengers as dead before the beginning of the story in order to provide emotional conflict for the rest of the mostly male cast, it's tempting to wring any hope one can out of the confirmation that another female superhero is joining the film's lineup.
