Not to be outdone by whatever Marvel announces on The View today, DC is trying to make waves of their own with huge changes to their entire line of comics in the wake of Convergence.
Up first, RIP New 52 branding. It hasn’t made sense in a long time and I guess we are back to it simply being the DC universe. (Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like we’ll be back to the Pre-Flashpoint DCU. Sniff.)
Gabbing Geek, like any online publication worth its salt, has editorial discussions. Watson was wondering how a story on longest-dead characters would go, specifically ones that stayed dead or had actual emotional impacts on the reader, especially if they died during an “event”.
Shortest death: probably Hal Jordan as Paralax in Zero Hour…back the very next month in the pages of Green Lantern. Longest may be Captain Mar-Vel, still dead and staying that way.
Melissa Benoist has been cast as Supergirl in CBS’s new upcoming hit show! You know what this means? Time to get out the hydrogen peroxide and dye that hair! Or wear a blonde wig, because Supergirl isn’t Supergirl without blonde hair. (This is coming from a blonde supporter, and thus otherwise expert on all things blonde).
Supergirl! Or, since you asked, yes…. my alter-ego. How did you know? It’s the blonde hair, right? HA – you caught me, you caught me…. wait, what? You’re not buying it? You don’t think I’m super girl? Well, we’ll just see who get’s Benedict Cumberbatch in the end, now won’t we?
Okay, enough kidding around – we have Supergirl news!
