DC Continuity Issues











So with Batman v Superman out of the way and Civil War coming up, people can't help but compare and wonder why is DC so late trying to catch up? What if I told you this is nothing different then what happened before?

In the late 80's early 90's, Tim Burton's Batman was the best comic book of all time and what did DC do to capitalize? They made cartoons! Batman the animated series is still to this day considered one of the best cartoons ever and for good reason, it simply rocks. Marvel witnessed the success of Batman and started cranking out cartoon show after show with such titles as Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Hulk, X-Men, and Spider- Man.

Starting to sound familiar?

Marvel wasn’t satisfied with just raining down shows on the happy geeky masses, it decided to bounce around characters from show to show; Spider- Man started to appear on X-Men, and vice versa. Now it was time for DC to catch up, and catch up they did. They came out with Superman, Batman beyond, and the Justice League amongst others. In my opinion, for that time, DC did it better. Unlike Marvel they used a single character as the driving point to bring the various groups together. It worked out beautifully for those shows because they were in one shared universe. From Batman to Justice League with all other tie in shows they gave us one giant story. Marvel at the time was nowhere near this complexed, again characters had some brief appearance but that was it.


Let's jump to 2005, Marvel learning from their cartoon mistakes and the tragedy of signing away rights to certain characters decides to do what DC did, but do it with movies. We all know the story from here, Marvel creates a movie universe, make billions of dollars, branch off TV shows, and create a giant movie universe. DC's problem now is far more than catching up, but trying to keep up. First the Dark Knight movies are another universe. Man of Steel wasn't a good starting ground, it's separate from its TV shows, and I feel as if they're cramming in everything they possibly can into the next movies.

Batman v Superman wasn't the bad movie that everyone claims it to be. Did the movie have problems? Yes, but it was what we the people wanted. DC playing keep up is nothing new to us.  It’s just that now it's on a silver screen scale. Will it be as good as Marvels? No, because Marvel wears the crown. They had this plan years ago and they are a unit. What DC fans have to realize is that they need to give DC
enough time. DC will eventually be back on top with hopefully a good one character base story that they can build to a solid group film. If not, they can just make another Batman can't go wrong with that.

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.

KIN (movie review) by Corey Floyd

I saw the trailer for KIN a while back. It had my curiosity. Black kid finds a gun that looks like it's from a Decepticon. He tries to protect his family... Hey, it looks better than the robot dog movie that you're already ignoring for obvious reasons. Anyway, I was lucky enough to see a screener of the film the other night and drank a few red bulls so I could bring a review to you.
Eli is a young ambitious kid who is mourning the death of his mom. While salvaging the abandoned buildings of Detroit he finds an Alien Weapon. Naturally, he keeps it secret from his strict blue-collar dad, played by Dennis Quaid. Quaid tries to instill values into his youngest son (Eli) while his eldest son Jimmy returns home from prison. Jimmy can't be apart of the family until he repays his prison debt to the local crime boss Taylor Balick, played by James Franco.
I don't wanna give too much of the plot away... sorry. But... I can say that the movie is worthy of your hard earned dollars. T…
