The Justice League animated series had a fantastic story arc called “The Justice Lords” as far as I could remember. Alternate universes and multi-verses have always been a part of comic book …

Man of Steel (2013 film)
   I don’t ask much when filmmakers go for comic book adaptations. I just hope that A) the filmmakers would preserve the essence of the character and source material. B) I don’t …
Superman Unbound (Animated film)
While Hollywood studios adapt comic books with changes to what their essences are, Warner Bros. animation (DCAU) chooses to adapt stories straight from the comic books. After the impressive two-part adaptation …

Iron Man 3 (2013 film)
Jon Favreau’s first two Iron Man films were more or less mixed bags for me. While I thought the first movie lacked ambition and did not take any risks, the screenplay and the direction was steady …
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns- Part Two
Frank Miller’s critically acclaimed mini-series/graphic novel “The Dark Knight Returns” had arguably re-defined the Batman mythos. It was such a monumental undertaking that for its storyline …

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012 film)
Sam Raimi’s first Spider-man film was a good launch for Spidey. It had major references to the Ultimate and 616 versions of the character that made it work. Sure, it was a little campy but it was …
