Crisis On Infinite Earths Coming Next Year!

Over here in the UK, the CW Elseworlds crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl hasn’t aired yet – it’s due to start this week – so I’ve been trying to avoid spoilers on the various news sites I read.

However, I couldn’t miss the news that, at the end of part 3 of the crossover, we get to see this:

Yeeeeeeeeeesss!!

Pretty much since The Flash started there’s been the newspaper from the future that shows the Flash disappearing in a Crisis and it’s long been suspected that it might happen; with this year’s crossover showing the arrival of The Monitor, it seems the hopes were well founded.

While I’ll be very happy to see what they do with this next year, you have to worry about Flash and Supergirl – neither of those characters survived the original Crisis in the comics . . .

Elseworlds Comes To TV

While I’ve never really got into Arrow, I’m a fan of The Flash and Supergirl and have enjoyed the previous crossovers between the various series. I’m looking forward to the Elseworlds crossover in the next couple of months (though it might be early next year before we get it over here in the UK) though I am wondering why Legends of Tomorrow has been left out this time around.

Still, I will be tuning in.

Monday Mash-Ups #6

Back on my old blog, I ran a series of related posts on Mondays and I’ve been wanting to do something along those lines here.

So, and I admit to being HUGELY influenced by the wonderful Super-Team Family blog which has been doing this for years (and a lot better) on an almost daily basis, I’ve mashed up a few comic covers.

Each week I randomly generate two years and two months and then compare the titles I own from both those dates, trying to find some covers that, with a little basic photoshopping, I can mash together, and then I force the results on you lovely people.

I have to admit to being really happy with this one, especially getting Green Arrow’s and Hawkman’s hands interacting with Fire and Blue Devil.

Ah, the 90s Justice League didn’t end well, did it?

Who Were The Mightiest DC Heroes In 1977?

This is a genuine ad from 1977 where DC were touting stories “featuring the mightiest heroes of our time!

I’ve blurred the list of names and the cover of the comic.

Before you click the read more link below, take a guess at which five heroes (because of course they’re all men, this was the 70s after all) will star in this comic. I’ll give you a clue – Superman wasn’t one of them.

Have your guesses ready . . .
