He’s the only one not bothered by Green Arrow’s chilli recipe – and I’m loving J’onn’s reaction!
I enjoy cooking and like a spicy chilli myself, so maybe I’ll try this myself if I could get hold of the equivalent of the California and Gebhardt chilli powder . . .
Back in December, DC announced a number of specials where their heroes would meet characters from the Hanna Barbera cartoons.
As I’ve never been a Hanna Barbera fan, I didn’t bother with them, but I did write at the time
Now if it was Green Lantern/Marvin The Martian I’d be interested . . .
Looks like I might have to put my money where my mouth is, as DC have now announced a number of specials where their heroes would meet characters from . . . the Looney Tunes cartoons. While Lobo/The Road Runner nor Batman/Elmer Fudd particularly interest me, Jonah Hex/Yosemite Sam and Martian Manhunter/Marvin the Martian may well end up in my collection.
If only I’d been smart enough to go with the obvious Martian crossover instead of Green Lantern . . .
And when I say “assembled” I mean literally put together by my own fair/gnarled hands:
We all know the minifigs are the best part of Lego sets but to get a full set of Justice League figures would cost hundreds of pounds, which is money I don’t have . . . at least not to spend on myself. Sure, over the years I could buy sets for my nephews to get hold of the figures . . . but then I’d have to steal the minifigs from them and that would put a serious dent in my cool/weird uncle status.
Instead, I headed to ebay and found numerous sellers selling “custom” figures which makes me think they’re not entirely authorised but what the hell, eh? Twenty quid later and I have the Justice League in Lego minifig form stood on one of my shelves – not to mention the bonus Blue Beetle, Hawkman and Darkseid figures I picked up as well just for the hell of it.
I fear I may have inadvertently started a new collection . . . Justice Society next, maybe? Or the Secret Six for Mrs Earth-Prime?
Either way, I can take comfort from the fact that I can always blame my mate Spike for last year’s Christmas present. It’s all his fault.
While I watched the final two episodes of Supergirl before Christmas, with work and family and everything else I didn’t get the chance to do any write ups of them which is a shame – the final episode in particular was a cracker. The Kryptonian assualt, Cat Grant figuring out Kara was Supergirl, and Henshaw revealing he was the Martian Manhunter all fed into a great mid-season cliffhanger.
Still, there’s news today that a new episode is going to be based around Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ story For The Man Who Has Everything where Kara will wake up on Krypton as though nothing has happened. As the linked article says, there’s no word on any other heroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman or Robin appearing and – to be honest – those roles are likely to be taken by Supergirl’s supporting cast. It’ll probably be Jimmy, Winn, Alex and maybe Henshaw as J’onn J’onnz who find her with some sort of Black Mercy attached, but it’ll be nice to see some form of the story on the screen.
And hey, it’ll give Alan Moore another opportunity to lambast TV and film writers for not being able to come up with anything original.
There’s also other news about a possible crossover between Supergirl and The Flash which I would love to see. Both shows, while dealing with serious moments, have a freshness about them that would make them an excellent fit. Fingers crossed this comes off.
