The Superhero Art of Brittney Williams

Brittney Williams just put up some charming X-Ladies art on her Tumblr, but she’s got some equally adorable and expressive characters studies of the Daily Planet staff, the Wonder Twins, Black Canary and Green Arrow, and even herself. Hey, we think drawing amazing superladies totally counts as a superpower. You can find the rest of her art at her Deviant Art page.


Who He Is and How He Came to Be

Oliver Queen Finally Starts Wearing a Mask, Just in Time to Meet the Flash

I guess Oliver’s finally tired of constantly having to interact with the five people in his entire city who know him personally as the Hood, from around corners and inside shadows and knows they’ll never guess his identity if they can’t see his cheekbones!

Also we have our first look at Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, the Flash, below.

And We Have Our First Trailer for Season 2 of Arrow

Hmm, I guess this means I should probably finish season one…

Colton Haynes Gets Recurring Gig on Arrow Could Mean We’re Not Getting Chick Sidekick

Just look at that Jackson smolder. Colton Haynes shocked Teen Wolf fans last year by announcing his resignation from the show in order to take a role on the CW’s Arrow as Roy Harper. He’s only made one appearance in an episode so far, as a purse snatcher and wily-con-man-when-he-needs-t0-be, but it shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s been signed to be a regular character in the show’s second season.

Yes, I’m still watching Arrow.

Alex Kingston Joins Arrow, Could be the Original Black Canary?

Arrow isn’t a great show by any stretch of the imagination, but I respect it for what it’s trying to do and have some hopes that eventually it will succeed. And let’s be real: I also enjoy the near constant references to obscure facets of the DC universe and it’s liberal borrowing from the Batman canon for villains and supporting characters. It’s those bits that keep the nerd in me casually watching it in the background of my other activities.

With the addition of Alex Kingston to the cast, however, the show’s going to pique the interest of an entirely different fandom.

Five New Pictures of the Huntress from Arrow

I finally caught up on four episodes of Arrow on Sunday, and while the show doesn’t exactly have me riveted (I watched the last three while simultaneously playing World of Warcraft because Valor Points, baby, Valor Points), it seems to me that the show is still sketching out the borders of its frame, still setting the stage for what it ultimately wants to say, and so I’m still mildly interested. Helping along my interest are small moments with the show’s considerable female cast (although I find the dialogue between Laurel and her friend at the legal aid office to be laughably bad), like Thea’s defenses of her understandable brokenness, the lovely awkward lady hacker character who just came on the scene, and the moment when Laurel totally rescued Ollie from a buttwhooping. Also, John Barrowman has finally started making appearances and that’s fun.

But more than any of that, I’m honor bound to stick with the show at least through the introduction of Helena Bertinelli, the Huntress, scourge of the Cosa Nostra.

DC Adds A Bunch More Beautiful Licensed Posters to Its Retail Store

DC has only just begun to offer licensed art prints related to its characters, but we’re really digging them. Also, this chart says I’m Rot Lop Fan, the F-Sharp Bell, so heeeelllllllz yes.


The World May Never Know

In Arrow, Barrowman Might be Villian or Savior, Original Character or Not, But He’ll Definitely Be Well Dressed

This picture of John Barrowman smiling at a scorpion brought to you by my love of odd celebrity pictures.

We’ve found out that the CW’s heretofore unimpressive Green Arrow-based series Arrow will also be featuring DC superheroine the Huntress in some first season episodes, and we’ve found out that the show’s creators have plans (however tentative) to include a female version of Speedy, Green Arrow’s sidekick. But it was the announcement of John Barrowman joining the cast of the show that first renewed our interest in the adaptation. Unlike Jessica De Gouw and Huntress, however, we still have no idea who Barrowman is going to be, and he’s not helping.

Arrow Teases More Superheroines; Plans to Make Green Arrow’s Sister Into Sidekick Speedy

Dammit, Arrow. You better be worth all the playing you’re doing with my emotions. It seems now every secondary character you reference as having included in the show now turns out to be one of the DC universe’s more obscure kickass ladies. I mean, first you included a character named after Black Canary’s civilian identity. Then you announced that the Huntress will definitely be on the show. Now, you’re saying that you’ve got long term plans that may culminate in the inclusion of Speedy, Green Arrow’s traditional teenage sidekick.

And not even Roy Harper, the original Speedy! You want to include a female Speedy, like Mia Dearden!
