The Comic Shoppe's Week in Review

And while you wait for tomorrow's show, check out this intermission, courtesy of the Comic Shoppe's own, Daryll B....

Hi Afronerd Fantasy Fans! This time I don't have a long rant ready for you folks, just some quick hits for you to consider:

-From When Fangirls Attack by way of Daily Scans: Why HAS Hank Pym been continually reviled for hitting Janet Van Dyne when other more famous heroes who have hit their significant others been forgiven? Is he really considered that bad compared to everyone else? Or do we chalk this up to the Millar effect along with the thought that a Capt. America who is all about truth, justice, and the American way is considered a pansy in today's world?

-Ya know I was pretty pissed reading Justice Society of America #31 where one of the few strong black characters in comics appeared to have died. Killed mind you by a mentally possessed junior white kid hero who stabbed him 12+ times. Then I saw Heroes and what they did to Ernie Hudson. Mind you the scene looked cool thanks to Ray Park, but it keeps up the stigma that black people just can't be on or have powers on Heroes. What a croc! You know I felt then what the black characters felt in Scary Movie 2. You know the "splitting up" scene...it still rings true to this day.

-On this note I still pissed that they hired LeVar Burton on to do the voice of Black Lightning for Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. Then proceeded to give him only one line! I guess I should be happy at least they didn't turn him into one of the strongest wimps on the planet (Power Girl) or play up their fan-fiction romance (Supes and Bats of course). And I'd be remiss to say it took me awhile to get Lex's debauchery out of my mind. Although the thought of him bagging PG and Amanda Waller would be interesting....

-OK Smallville and me have this love hate thing going on, but I can forgive them this week because they gave me Roulette and she was smoking hot!

-Help me out here Marvel: Just how many spider based characters do we got here? Well it could be worse, we could have multi-colored Hulks....um we do? Cwap!

-Ryan Reynolds and crew...exiled from Australia. Damn Green Lantern will begin shooting again...eventually..I hope.

-I have to agree with Troy Brownfield from Newsarama on this one: Where is the Iron Man 2 teaser trailer already???

-Am I the only one who hated Where The Wild Things Are as a kid? O well you folks can go see that, I'll be checking out Astro Boy...even if it does have Nicholas Cage as Dr. Tenma.

Enjoy A-nerders and until next week: Keep Fantasizing!

Oh and one more thing....-Thumbs up to Portland, OR and Flemington, NJ for holding Wonder Woman Day on Sunday October 25th. The events and activities scheduled are to honor the Heroine of Truth and all proceeds go to charities that fight domestic abuse. Good Luck to you fine folks!
