Superheroes…of the sea?
We certainly hope so! DC and Marvel superheroes as manatees, what’s not to love about that. Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Spiderman and Batman - the infamous sea cows. We can only speculate as to whether they team up to guard the oceans together, or merely co-exist as true manatees do!
These wonderful works were created by Joel Micah Harris and the attention to detail is quite remarkable, as is the rich and mysterious oceans in which they dwell.

DC Comics Reveal The Return Of The Joker
DC recently announced that the Joker will return in Octobers ‘Death in the Family’ arc. Thankfully it will be handled by the fantastic team of Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion.
Synder had this to say from the DC blog:
”Joker is my favorite villain of all time. Not just in comics. In everything - film, books, TV. He’s the greatest, hands down. So this story is something extremely important and personal to me - something I’ve been building in my head ever since I started working in Gotham. Basically, this is my big exploration of the Joker, my ARKHAM ASYLUM or THE KILLING JOKE, only bigger in scope. Bottom line: it’s the biggest, baddest, most shocking Joker story I could tell. This is Joker completely unleashed. He has been away for a full year planning this revenge, watching, plotting, setting things up. And now he’s back. He has his traps set, his knives sharpened… And wait ‘til you see him. Greg’s sketches literally gave me chills. Point blank: This is Joker like you’ve never seen him before. He has a mission. He has a secret. And he has a serious axe to grind with Batman. It isn’t going to be pretty, but it’s going to be a wild ride. Thanks for taking it with us.”
Definitely one to look forward to if the above statement is anything to go by!
The Joker makes his return on October 10 in Batman #13.
Justice Friends Vs. Avengers
Remember the Justice Friends? Dexter’s Laboratory fans might (as Cartoon Network fans we sure do). Here’s the whole gang! The main characters: Major Glory, The Infraggable Krunk, and Vanhallen along with Action Hulk, Agent Honeydew, Falcor the Woodsman and Dexter himself, in a contraption he created earlier. The friends are a parody of the DC Comics Justice League and Marvel’s Avengers.
The Justice Friends often appeared (that’s right folks, Dexter’s Laboratory is no more) in the Dial M for Monkey segment, dedicated to Dexter’s super powered pet monkey, named…Monkey. The friends also featured in a Powerpuff Girls episode.
Writer Hired For Justice League Movie?
According to various reports, Will Beall (TV series Castle, Lethal Weapon 5) has been signed up to write for the new film with no further news on a possible release date or any news on the solo films of the other team members such as Flash or Wonder Woman.
Seeing as Marvels The Avengers is now the 3rd highest grossing film of all time, I can imagine that Warner Bros and DC have looked to fast track any JLA related projects.
MTV Awards 2012 The Dark Knight Footage
So here it is folks, even more clips of the final film in the Batman/Nolan trilogy. Any spoilers? Not really.
One thing that was confirmed in the video was the rumor about how we are introduced to Catwoman in a way that mirrors Jokers ‘magic trick’ moment, where she breaks a prisoners arms in an acrobatic way. What a lovely lady!
