"I think what happens to Tim... is so shocking that even I am shocked with what I got away with..." -- "Teen Titans" writer Scott Lobdell

The Batman event "Death of the Family" will finally touch the lives of "Red Hood and the Outlaws" and "Teen Titans" this week, when each of their 15th issues will deal with the Joker's terror-filled reign of revenge. MTV Geek chatted with Scott Lobdell, the author of both comics, about what we might expect. Read More...

There's the good, the great, and then there's the BEST. Welcome to MTV Geek's Best of 2012 -- what we thought were the cream of the crop this year in the world of GEEK!

While TV shows get canceled and messed with all the time, the fate of "Community" over 2012 has been particularly, spectacularly cruel. Should we blame the Mayans?

MTV Geek is counting down the 10 Most OMG Moments Of Geek! #8 concerns a certain cult TV show...

To put it bluntly: if you are a fan of "Community," 2012 really sucked.

"...you want comic books to be realistic, you have to acknowledge the diversity of the human race." -- James Robinson

MTV Geek is counting down the 10 Most OMG Moments Of Geek! #9 regards a certain pair of Green Lanterns...

Oftentimes, big entertainment companies are loathe to change their iconic heroes in any way -- even a hairstyle adjustment  must go through a certain scrutiny by the "higher-ups." And then we have Green Lantern -- or, rather, Green Lanterns. You can have plenty of Green Lanterns, whereas you need to keep your Supermen and Robins down to a reasonable amount. In a move that would  increase the diversity of their comic book lines (regardless of whether that move was incidental to the stories, calculated, or most likely a mix of the two), DC Comics in 2012 introduced two new Green Lanterns to the roster -- one gay, and one an Arab-American Muslim.

Cue reactionary Internet freakout here.

She-Ra "reimagined" by artist Drew Edward Johnson: "I...divided her face down the middle with the panel borders to show her split nature."

Everybody knows She-Ra as the female counterpart to beloved 1980s icon He-Man -- but according to DC Comics writer Mike Costa, you don't really know She-Ra. The sword-wielding heroine's origin is headed for a "dramatic retelling"  in a self-named digital one-shot, according to CNN.

Some might be surprised to learn that She-Ra -- a.k.a. Princess Adora -- started out as basically an agent/assassin for the evil Hordak. It's those darker early years of the character's life that the comic will focus on. Read More...

Before we get into the latest chapter of the "Who Is Cumberbatch In Star Trek 2" game, let's hear what producer J.J. Abrams has to say about the matter. MTV News' Josh Horowitz grilled Abrams on the "Star Trek Into Darkness" villain controversy:

It's just too tempting to publish an "After Watchmen" type series, or "Watchmen 2.0," or some other such entity (you know, barring any sort of new legal developments or a particularly strong magickal curse from Alan Moore). 

The series of "Before Watchmen" comics are certainly not all over -- but it's safe to say, especially with the announcement of the first hardcover collections -- that it's wrapping up.

Where, if anything, does DC Comics go from here regarding this franchise?

Well, it depends on who you talk to. Read More...

The popular Masters of the Universe/Thundercats convention extravaganza Power-Con has just announced their 2013 dates -- as well as another pop-culture icon under their umbrella.

Nothing less than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be added to Power-Con's roster of heroes:

With the recent "Man of Steel" trailer being such a show-stopper, one can only imagine that JGL as Batman for even one frame of that movie will send a mass fan-explosion of ecstasy.

Despite denials by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's reps that he is putting on the cape and cowl for an upcoming "Justice League" movie -- much less next year's "Man of Steel" -- I am a tenacious fangirl and am willing to grasp at any straws flung my way. MTV Splash Page reports this morning that while "Man of Steel" producer Christopher Nolan didn't exactly say "yes" concerning a JGL/Batman cameo in "MOF" -- he didn't quite deny it, either. They quote a recent Movieline interview with Nolan:

"I can't talk about that. You know that," Nolan answered when asked about Gordon-Levitt's rumored involvement, wearing what Movieline called a "Cheshire smile."

"At first I was just tearing up and by the time there was 15ish minutes later there were 8 girls sobbing in a heap. After the episode ended every one just sat there, and cried and cried. I’m still not over it I swear if I have to explain the episode I will burst into tears its happened one already. Does anyone else have intense Pond feels they would like to add?" -- Sexy Tardis Doctor, Tumblr

The site Star Wars Aficionado has found rarely-seen images of female X-Wing and A-Wing fighter pilots from "Return of the Jedi's" climactic Battle of Endor scene. The pictures of the pilots can be found deep within the "Jedi" Blu-ray, and includes one older woman: Read More...

...audiences need a film that taps into the Zeitgeist. I think "Man of Steel" just might be that film.

I will admit to you, I had my serious fears and doubts about "Man of Steel," the new Superman movie hitting theatres next year. Some of these fears were spawned from, obviously, how poorly "Green Lantern" was received -- as well as no underwear over the tights (you always need underwear over the tights). The recent promo pic of Superman in handcuffs also had me worried; it just seemed too stark, too dark. But the new trailer for the film -- which you can read about at length at MTV Splashpage -- really convinced me that there was something more there. And that's because, at least judging from what little I've seen, this seems like a deeply mythic movie that delves into the very DNA of the Hero's Journey. Read More...

There's always been an essential tension to the whole Batman franchise for me. On one hand, you have the gritty yin/yang "we're not so different you and me" duel of duality between Batman and the Joker. On the other hand, you have The Batman Family, the very phrase bringing to mind the entire crew (including Ace the Bat-Hound and a sullen Jason Todd) sitting around a table for Thanksgiving dinner.

"The Eternal Warrior is Jason Bourne-meets-Highlander...also part Punisher, part Terminator." -- Fred Van Lente, describing a guy you don't want to get on the bad side of.

"Archer & Armstrong" #5, hitting stores this Wednesday on the lucky (we hope) date of 12/12/12, ups the stakes for the comic so far -- re-introducing to the new Valiant Universe the Eternal Warrior. There's also a grand-spankin' new Big Bad, further kooky konspiracies, Geomancers, and, of course, more development of the chemistry between the two protagonists. "A&A" writer Fred Van Lente tells all -- and don't forget to check out our EXCLUSIVE preview of the issue plus cover reveals for #8 (like this cheeky variant cover by the talented Tom Fowler): Read More...

"Star Wars: Scoundrels" blasts its way into stores January 1!

MTV News was among the lucky journalists who got to see the first 9 minutes of the highly-anticipated, much-speculated about "Star Trek Into Darkness". While they've reported that "There are no mentions of Khan, or Gary Mitchell," there is an intriguing scene making the Internet rounds that might possibly shine more light on the identity of the mysterious villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

In the scene, Cumberbatch's character, wearing a shirt with the Starfleet insignia, is quarantined in a glass cell, with Kirk and Spock looking at him:
