Sorry, Inhumans TV show. If you were what it took to get this version of your characters, then I'm grateful for your (almost) existence.

Grant Gustin Reveals the Oh-So-Predictable Title of The Flash‘s Season Three Opener

You all know how I felt about the Season Two finale of The CW's The Flash. However, I still love the show, and so I was hoping against hope that the S2 ending wasn't leading to the most predictable of all places. So much for that. **SPOILERS IF YOU'RE NOT CAUGHT UP ON THE FLASH**

How The Flash Season Two Finale Tarnished Barry Allen’s Heroism

Adults can be orphans, and I guess I am one. My mother died in my mid-twenties thanks to complications from diabetes. My father died eight years later, when I was in my mid-thirties. Both were elderly, and both had health problems. Suddenly, by 35, I found myself in a world without either of my parents--like Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash. **SPOILERS if you're not caught up to the end of The Flash, Season 2**

Wonder Woman’s New 52 Origin Should Not Be Used in Film (or At All)

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven says they'll be using Wonder Woman's DC Comics' "New 52" reboot origin rather than the story imagined by her original writer and creator William Moulton Marston.

Everything You Need to Know About Fear Itself and Flashpoint …So Far

If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

The summer is halfway over, and Marvel and D.C.’s annual crossover events are well underway. Both companies boast their usual claims that following their event, things will be changed irrevocably in their respective universes. Previous “Crises” and “Secret Wars” have proven otherwise, with continuities returning more or less to the status quo in the months following the end of the big event. Flamboyant, flashy (no pun intended) covers once again adorn seemingly necessary companion titles to the earth-shattering summer series that seek to empty our wallets and purses. Thus, the annual debacle arises over whether our hard earned money should be spent on these events, when they demand their own importance, but more often than not result in general frivolity. Although it is not my place to tell you what to buy or not to buy, I can at least inform you of the nature of each event, and fill you in on what’s been going on; so that if you find yourself browsing your local comic book store this week, you will be well informed.
