Last week we learned a new villain named Relic is heading to DC Comics, and he might be big enough to turn Green Lantern yellow. But in an MTV Geek exclusive, we’ve learned the physically massive intergalactic baddie will make his entrance in “Green Lantern” #21, the same issue which marks writer Robert Venditti’s first issue as writer on the book following Geoff Johns’ departure.

It's the smallest DC heroes can get without using the Atom's shrinking belt! ...nerdiest reference on this site ever?

As we wait to find out whether this summer's Man of Steel will do for Superman what the "Dark Knight" trilogy did for Batman (or if it'll just do what Superman Returns did for Superman which...wasn't much), we can at least take comfort in the avalanche of awesome merchandise headed our way, including this new super-detailed statue from master manufacturer Kotobukiya!
Check out the first official clip for the latest original animated movie from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, "Superman: Unbound," set to hit stores and On Demand May 7.
"Superman: Unbound," based on the 2008 Geoff Johns/Gary Frank story "Superman: Brainiac," will also feature the talents of "Castle" duo Stana Katic as Lois Lane, and Molly Quinn as Supergirl. And voicing Braniac himself? None other than "Fringe's" John Noble! Read More...
To celebrate Superman's 75th birthday, fans and pros took to Twitter to wish the big guy a happy one by sharing their favorite memories of the Man of Steel, many not forgetting to pay tribute to the real heroes in the Superman story, creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
Cosplayer Teri Christine has a number of clever and charming comic book costumes on her Deviant Art page including a number featuring her young son as The Green Lantern and as you see here, the late Damian Wayne. When I initially stumbled upon this cosplay on Midtown Comics' Tumblr I thought it was adorable to see an actual kid dressed as the badass Robin.

For a character with no real footprint in the pop culture landscape (no feature film in development, no TV series in the works, and only one comic at publisher DC), Wonder Woman nevertheless occupies a huge space in the public consciousness. At least, that's the argument of filmmaker Kristy Guevava-Flanagan, whose hour-long look at the history of Wonder Woman "Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines" draws a line between William Moulton Marston's Amazonian princess and the birth and progress of the feminist movement.
"Wonder Women" positions the character as kind of the patron saint of feminism: strong, confident, bold, and at the same time marginalized, minimized, and sometimes only grudgingly part of the conversation. As disappointing as it is to see the character pushed to the margins of pop culture over the years, it's heartening to see so many creatives and thoughtful women still inspired by the legacy of the character.
Artist J.E. Mark created these amazing portraits of four members of Batman's rogues gallery in the style of 1930' police mugshots and I think you'll agree that DC needs to lock this guy down for some cover or pin-up work STAT!
