We’ve Had a Live Action Starfire This Whole Time!

The third season of the TV show Titans is due out…I think any year now…on HBO Max! We’ve already seen the live action Red Hood costume, and now they’ve revealed the new, more comics-accurate Starfire costume!

Here’s actor Anna Diop in the flashy purple Starfire costume!

Hopefully they don’t give her 1994 Fantastic Four fire effects

I think it looks neat! It also looks a little awkward, but then a proper comic book Starfire costume was probably always going to look awkward. At least she’s not being made to wear a purple metal bikini on national TV…or HBO Max.

I still need to watch the second season of Titans.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/21/20

Happy Thanksgiving, American friends! The holiday isn’t until Thursday, but this feels like a good time to say something nice about Thanksgiving. Be safe. Wear your mask. Social distance. Do all that good stuff.

Against my better judgement, Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Force #14, due entirely to lack of competition. None of the other comics I read this week were as fun.

The height of X of Swords

Meanwhile, I skipped the newest issue of Spider-Woman. Not much happened. And I’m still enjoying Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Oh, I know! I got around to watching a Hulu show called Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and it’s very fun! Highly recommended.

Comic Reviews: Batman #103, Juggernaut #3, X-Force #14, Hellions #6 and Cable #6.

Some People May Be Looking Forward to the Snyder Cut

I am not one of those people. I liked Justice League well enough when I saw it in theaters, but I haven’t seen it since. And I like a lot of director Zack Snyder’s earlier work, like 300 and Watchmen. Heck, I also really like Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah!

But man, this new-ish trailer for the #SnyderCut is atrocious.

First of all, it’s almost exactly like the original trailer that was put up a couple weeks ago. That got taken down for a copyright strike on the song…so they just re-upload the trailer again with the same song and a couple of seconds of new footage? Second of all, it’s in black and white?! The actual #SnyderCut will not be in black and white. Which means this is an entirely “artistic” choice for this trailer. Jeez louise.

Third of all, did you hear that Wonder Woman 1984 is going to debut both in theaters and on HBO Max on Christmas Day? Bold strategy! Looks like I’ll get to see it after all!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/14/20

It has been a week since America decided to elect a new President and it’s been a pleasant week at that. I splurged on some new LEGO to celebrate. I bought the new Spider-Man video game. And I read some good to OK comics, like Iron Man and a bunch more X of Swords.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #1 because, just like last week’s Mighty Morphin, the new era of Power Rangers comics at BOOM! is just as much fun as its always been!

It’s on like Donkey Kong!

Meanwhile, as I mentioned earlier, I picked up Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the Playstation 4 and it’s great! It’s another fun dose of the already beloved Spider-Man PS4 gameplay, only now its Miles Morales-flavored. And the writers and developers went out of their way to find ways to make that special. Miles swings differently than Peter. He fights differently. And he lives differently. It’s great!

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season Two #9, Iron Man #3, Power Rangers #1, Marauders #15, Excalibur #14 and Wolverine #7.

6 USA-Themed Superheroes (Other Than Captain America)

Hooray America! At long last, the people of the United States of America came together to oust Donald J. Trump from the White House! Granted, it was a tight race and a good 70 million+ Americans still voted for that national embarrassment to remain in power, but the only thing that matters in the end is the win for Joe Biden.

So let’s celebrate by recognizing a bunch of fun USA-themed comic book characters!

Let freedom ring

Obviously Captain America is the #1 choice for such a list, but everybody already knows about him. Let’s dig deeper and find some of the more obscure and yet still 100% real America-themed comic book characters! There are a lot more than you’d think. And I’m not just talking about U.S.Agent or Iron Patriot either. Oh no, we’re digging deep for this list and it’s going to be a raucous good time!

Join me after the jump for six United States of America-themed superheroes as we celebrate a Trump-less country.
