This is a really well done action figure for the New 52 version of Black Adam. I’m just not so sure about the new look.
Black Adam never wore a cape until New 52, and with that hood he looks like a very pissed off Dr. Strange.
DC is going all-in on its line of Power Battery and Ring replicas. Hence, I give you the Orange Lantern prop for the low, low price of $199.95.
In case you’re not up on DC continuity, yes, there is an Orange Lantern Corps:
An Orange Lantern Ring is powered by avarice, or greed. The wielders of the Orange Power Rings are covered in a deeper aura than members of other Corps. According to Ganthet, “the orange light of avarice will be discovered and manipulated by a being whose greed knows no bounds”. The Controllers, an off-shoot of the Oan race, were searching the Vega star-system for the orange light in order to create their own Corps.
5th Cell, the makers of Scribblenauts, recently announced they were making a DC Superhero-themed version of the game called Scribblenauts Unmasked.
The first thing that usually comes up with DC or Marvel licensed properties is which heroes and villains the game will feature. In the case of Scribblenauts Unmasked, the answer appears to be “All of them.”
Aside from a few characters that DC owns but are not considered part of the DC Universe–Watchmen being the most notable exception–this game is apparently going to feature even the most obscure of DC’s heroes and villains. Matter-Eater Lad? Check.
Mogo, the sentient planet that is also a member of the Green Lantern Corps? Check.
Personally, I’ve been waiting all my life for a game that would let me play as Composite Superman, and it looks like that time has arrived.
DC’s releasing action figure 2-packs based on the Injustice: Gods Among Us fighting game. These are going to retail for $29.95 which seems expensive considering that these are all 3.75″ scale.
On top of that, this Cyborg figure is completely boss but the Harley Quinn redesign for Injustice is ludicrous. With the diamond shape mask, that looks like Marvel’s Winter Soldier with a big breasts and a nonsensical costume (because if you’re fighting Cyborg, you absolutely must have a costume that exposes your midriff– the full idiocy of the costume can best be appreciated by viewing the comic version here).
Too bad they don’t sell the Cyborg version separately.
I’m not quite sure what to make of Behance’s gallery of DC super-heroes reimagined as Post-Punk/New Wave icons,
