A river goes over a high cliff at about a 30-40 degree angle, falling into a large, circular lake before continuing on through a narrow channel. The angle of impact of water creates a constant whirlpool in the lake. Rising from the center of this lake is an ancient tower - originally of elvish origin, but now home to a school of wizardy whose headmaster is a devil.

This devil is known only as The Foresworn Devil. The curricula and philosophy he espouses is decidedly neutral. None know his true name, nor whence he came from (other than Hell), nor why he is there.

I still love the show, but this is getting kind of annoying….

Spoiler:
Oh, awesome! This tachyon thingamajig will make me faster than Zoom! Now I can beat him. Except when it doesn’t, and you can’t. I think part of the problem is they introduced Zoom too early and didn't have enough filler plots and stories. So now they have to stretch out the Big Bad fight in ridiculous ways.

And now Wally is a prisoner. Is Man in the Iron Mask Earth-2 Wally? Maybe he was Kid Flash? I’m almost done trying to guess, because whatever the answer is will probably be annoying.

Time remnant? I convinced him to let me murder him? Seriously? However, if the plan all along was to kill his “time remnant”, then why (right after it happened), did Zoom talk about the death creating complications?

You know what? I’m just going to stand over here and wait for the space-time continuum to collapse upon itself.

Damn, those Flash villains just love to kidnap Caitlin. Maybe Zoom will try and convert her into Killer Frost.

Deep thoughts.....

Spoiler:
Not really.

Hey, Max just said we've only got four hours until this Myriad signal kills every human. Why don't I waste some time by changing back into my civilian garb and saying heartfelt goodbyes to my co-workers.

I did like that final showdown with Non and Indigo. Both our heroes kicked some ass.

Oh, Supergirl! You can't fly Fort Roz into space. There's no gravity! you can't get thrust! Since f$~*ing when? Superman flies through space all the f@@$ing time.

They did throw me for a loop with the new ship. It definitely looks Kryptonian. If it's a younger Supergirl, though, and they try to do some freaky time paradox s$+@, I'll be pissed. Or maybe they'll play up the alternate Earths some more....

Either way, I find myself hoping they get renewed for Season 2. Unless they have already, and I missed the announcement.

I own many of the Warner Premiere movies: I'm missing a few older ones, some of which I had on DVD and haven't yet gotten on Bluray. I've also refrained from buying some of the more recent Batman ones because I really despise the Damien Wayne character.

Some of my favorite are:
Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths (James Woods as Owlman!)
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (cool anthology)
Batman: Year One (one of the best adaptations of a comic story)
Superman vs The Elite (watching Supes Unleashed was awesome!)
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (duh!)

I'm really looking forward to The Killing Joke - it's only one of my favorite Batman stories ever. Really looking forward to Mark Hammill doing this version of the Joker.

I'd love to see them do Batman: Year Two, where he takes on The Reaper. That could be really cool. And maybe the old Gothic Story from Legends of the Dark Knight - Mr. Whisper was terrifyingly badass. Another good adaptation might be the JLA/JSA crossover story Virtue and Vice. The Great Darkness Saga would also be awesome! So would Crisis on Infinite Earths, but that would definitely be a multi parter.

Well, that sucks. Not surprising in the least. While I personally enjoyed the movie, it wasn't the greatest. Just goes to show that DC needs someone far more talented running their live-action movies.

Extended Promo for next week's "Versus Zoom" episode

From this preview, they call Zoom Hunter Zolomon. Considering we've already (supposedly) seen Earth-1 Hunter Zolomon (whom Jay showed to Caitlin, thinking it was Earth-1 Jay, but with an adopted name), I'm wondering if they are going the route of Zoom/Hunter being the evil twin of Earth-2 Jay.

If that's the case, then it would mean Jay/Hunter were twins on Earth-1 as well. So what happened to the real Earth-1 Jay? Did he die at birth? Just die young? Is he the man in the iron mask, captured by Zoom in hopes of being able to feed off him, as he did with Jay-2, but then finding out Jay-1 didn't have speed force?

Or, is Zoom actually Hunter Zolomon of Earth-1? I don't think this makes much sense, because it wouldn't make sense for him to be from Earth-1, but show up first on Earth-2.

No, I think it more likely Zoom is Hunter-2. He was a convicted murderer. From the promo it looks like they might have tried to execute him via electric chair - probably the night the particle accelerator exploded - BOOM! Zoom is born. He started taking the V-formula to go faster, and now has to steal speed to keep from dissipating.

Either way, it looks like we'll find out next week.

That was a cool episode….

Spoiler:
Flash and Supergirl – For the WIN!!! Loved seeing the interactions between the two, from the first moment when Barry rescued her and almost put out the fire on her chest. They quickly fell into a nice superhero camaraderie that was refreshing to see. As other folks are pointing out, it was a stark contrast to the grimness of Batman v Superman.

And it was nice to see Barry in the role of mentor. It fit him well. And I loved seeing him away from Team Flash but still being able to come up with some tech to combat one of the villains. It’s a nice change from Barry typically being reliant on Cisco or Caitlin for his science back-up.

The storyline was, of course, a little too convenient (as is typical for comic book stories). Just as the Flash shows up, Silver Banshee decides to bust Live Wire out for a team-up. Still, I like the way they did Silver Banshee. I’m guessing next time she shows up, Kara will fake her own death to try and short circuit her powers.

Not too thrilled about the citizens coming to the hero’s aid at the end. Too Spider-manish. Although I did like the way the fire fighters took down Livewire.

Cat Grant continues to be a highlight of the show. The dry humor and sarcasm are fun to watch. And her comment about the CW (“You look like the attractive yet non-threatening, racially diverse cast of a CW show.”) was f+&#ing hilarious.

All in all, I look forward to seeing more of these interactions. It shows some serious potential for DC to have a vast TV multiverse, utilizing a lot of characters you might not normally see on the big screen. I’d love to see more. Maybe a Checkmate series. Or Challengers of the Unknown. A Firestorm solo series would be cool. Or Dr. Fate. There’s a lot of possibility.

Flash was faster.

Saw the movie last night with my younger brother. I enjoyed it. Wasn't perfect, but it was entertaining. I thought Ben Affleck did a remarkably good job. I thought Gal Gadot did well, but I wish they could have bulked her up just a bit. Henry Cavill did well, but I wish they'd given Superman a bit more screen time. Eisenberg did ok - he got the right amount of evil, arrogant genius who hates Superman. However, I think they put a little too much Joker into him.

The plot was a bit choppy, but overall well done. Lex's evil plot was sufficiently convoluted and twisted - expressing his utter hatred of the Man of Steel, and the complexity of a comic book villain.

All in all, it was worth the wait to see DC's big two on the big screen together for the first time. And it was a pleasure to hear some classic lines spoken live.

Loved seeing Absorbing Man again. And he was even working on the side of the angels, kind of.

So, now we know some things about Hive. He can only posses dead humans. He can heal damaged host bodies, but only by sacrificing other humans. He's got some immunity to other inhuman powers (or, at the least, a way to counteract them). And it looks to be confirmed that he can control other inhumans.

And with all these Hive developments, it makes me wonder if Malick is going to soon regret rescuing his good buddy.

Loved seeing Lincoln in action again.

Argis "One Wand" Bulwick is a notorious pirate with a bit of otherworldliness in his blood, granting him some sorcerous talent. Several years ago, he lost his left hand to a rival's sword. He commissioned a dwarven friend to craft a cap for his stump containing a simple clamp into which he could place a wand.

Speaking of that lady - they mentioned the name of the actress on Talking Dead, so I looked her up on IMDB. Apparently, she played the child Alia Atreides in the 80's David Lynch version of Dune. And now I feel very old.

You guys can snark all you want, the OP certainly has a valid point - the Paizo website is out-of-date.

Truth is, I could actually give two f%#~s less about whether the site is out of date or not. If it works, it works. If it doesn't, it doesn't. I'm patient enough to let the staff work that stuff out in their own time.

Although, in hindsight, now that DC has gotten its collective head out of its collective ass regarding issues numbering (at least for Detective and Action), I could maybe see myself picking up a few more issues of Detective Comics. Just to see where they were going with it. I'd drop it again pretty quick if they were going to continue with endless crossovers with other Bat-books, or if they had Damian Wayne.

I also didn't see Justice League 3001 on the list. That's been a kind of fun little book, but I guess maybe not enough of a big seller.

Of all the stuff on that list the titles that get me excited are....not a g$+@#$ned one. I see they're going to reboot Cyborg again. I've been collecting the current series, and while interesting, I thought the stories have been a little weak.

That goes hand in hand with my typical assertion the storylines have become far too long. I think it ultimately hurts when you force a writer to make this story X-number of issues long, so it's easier to package in a trade paperback.

I loved last night's episode! And I have a new theory on the origin/identity of Zoom!

Spoiler:
It seems as though the writer is maybe a huge fan of Wally West and/or Mark Waid. The origin story they provided for Reverse Flash is very similar to the "Return of Barry Allen" story Waid did in the pages of West Flash lo those many years.

I'm glad Patty figured out he was the Flash, and the scene on the train at the end was pretty cool.

I liked the scene with Iris and her mom.

I like the expansion of Cisco's powers.

Well2 is still a dick, and it looks like he might be moving forward with his plans to betray Wally by stealing his speed.

Hunter Zolomon! WOOT! Could it be that he will eventually become ZOOM, then travel back in time to steal more speed? Will Caitlin inadvertently be the cause of Zoom's creation, and Jay's subsequent loss of speed power, all in an attempt to cure Jay? I can see her getting desperate, performing an experiment to give Hunter the same mutated DNA Jay has, so that she can heal Jay. But something goes wrong and...BOOM!....we get Zoom instead.

I can never forgive that movie for wasting Sir Ben Kingsley. Even if the way they wasted him was totally f*++ing awesome.

Plus, Pepper getting super powers was just stupid*. Not to mention, the complete idiocy of they way they did Extremis.

*This opinion (which is correct, by the way) may be partially based on my utter and complete hatred of that extraordinarily creepy-ass Gwyneth Paltrow chick.

It'll probably involve some humor. Marvel seems to like using supporting cast for that. But I wouldn't be surprised if they give him a bit of martial arts-ing to do. I just wonder if they're going to make him shave his head.

Otherwise, I trust the movie franchise runners to not f*!@ it up too much.

I don't see what either the author's age or parentage to has to do with his work.

The age thing is personal preference. I find a lot of young folks these days to be annoying, and young writers seem adept at channeling what I find annoying into their work.

As for parentage, in this case it's once again personal preference (the specifics of which I mentioned up thread). Other than that, I could give two s*#@s less whether some famous writer's kid tried their hand at writing. Or any famous artist/entertainer for that matter. Talent does have a habit of running in the family on occasion. From what I understand, Stephen King's kid is a pretty decent writer.

Finally got to see the movie. It was pretty good.

One thing I don't understand is those who say it was a pure re-hash of A New Hope. I saw elements of the original trilogy throughout, and some excellent homages.

A rehash. Those folks are smoking some bad s+@+. Or they're just idiots.

Droid escapes from the Empire/First Order carrying information that both the Empire/First Order and the Rebel Alliance/Resistance. It crashes on a desert planet, where it soon meets the hero of the story, Luke/Rey. This hero is found to be force sensitive. Through the Empire/First Order's efforts to recapture the droid, the hero meets the main villain, Darth Vader/Kylo Ren. The Rebel Alliance/Resistance learns of the existence of a planet-killer weapon (apologies to Babylon 5 for stealing their terminology). The hero's mentor, Obi-Wan/Han Solo is killed by the main villain. The hero confront's the main villain, and barely escapes with his/her life. Largely through the actions of the hero, the planet-killer weapon is destroyed.

I mean, cmon? They could have at least made Jakku into something other than a desert planet. Hell, they could have made it an ICE planet and at least stolen a note from ESB.

And....so what?

It still has enough plot differentiations to make it a standout movie in it's own right. Besides, many of those plot points are elemental to most stories.

So I stand by my earlier statement.

Just a thought more on the movie, while it's fresh in my mind...I don't recall them saying where Snoke was sending his messages from.

Also, maybe it was me, but his face seemed...f~*%ed up...on one side. I mean, other than the fact he was some creepy looking alien dude. He kind of seemed to me to be the bastard love-child of the cave troll from Fellowship of the Ring and one of the monsters from the I am Legend movie.
