As for Batman he must most definitely be a Republican as he is kinda rich in real life (Bruce Wayne) and he is tough on crime. Ratium enis dunt verume voloreritio que delis et alibusantem.

ntil now, every year a Superheroe movie vomes out. Many of the make us aspire to become one or look up to many. The movie KickAss really shows this phenomena. It is the dream of every geek at least to become one ,but some of them take it a little too seriously and this is why HBO has done a documentary about real life Superheroes to show us how they act. It is without a doubt that many of us might look at them and think that they are crazy, but we should really be on the contrary admiring their courage as they are real life caped crusaders on a mission to fight evil.

t’s been 16 years that Herbert Chavez, a young philippino Superman fan, has gone through extensive plastic surgery to become a real life Superman look alike.

will make me happy and contented as long as I don’t hurt anyone,” he wrote.This cult of Superman does not stop here for Chavez, since he also collects everything about his favorite hero...While not having the same super powers as his favorite hero, he continues, and hopes to serve as an example and show that we can all achieve our dreams, if we take the trouble to do so...Some are just more persistant than others in life and will never stop until they are satisfied with what they have.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES MOVIE

There’s still plenty that needs to be revealed between now and July 2012, but we at least have enough information to start piecing together the plot of the new sequel. This feature breaks down exactly what we know about the characters and story of The Dark Knight Rises. It also dissects the many rumors surrounding the project and suggests a few wish list items for good measure. There may be plenty of comic book movies in the pipeline this year, but it’s safe to say The Dark Knight Rises will still be at the forefront of many geeks’ thoughtsTo date we’ve heard very little from either Nolan or WB regarding any specific story details for The Dark Knight Rises. But given how The Dark Knight played out and the recent casting announcements, it’s easy enough to infer certain things about the script. Expect the tone of the movie to be grim, at least initially. Bruce Wayne is mourning the tragic deaths of Rachel Dawes and Harvey Dent. He’s mourning the equally tragic end of Dent’s successful crusade against crime and corruption. The last shot of Batman in The Dark Knight showed the injured hero escaping from the GCPD, who now blame him for the five murders committed by TwoFace. We highly doubt all will have been magically forgiven in the time between the first and second sequels. Stealth and caution will be the order of the day as Batman has to stay one step ahead of Gotham’s Finest. Expect the formerly close relationship between Batman and Commissioner Gordon to become strained. As

we reported in our Comics-to-Film guide, our sources have indicated that Catwoman won’t necessarily be portrayed as a villain in this film, but rather as a costumed vigilante in her own right. It seems that Batman will have retreated into the shadows as the movie opens, but the arrival of a new crimefighter on the scene brings him back into the fold. In a way, Catwoman almost seems like a stand-in for Robin based on that description. Please, Movie Gods. Put Hathaway in the cat suit.How Bane fits into the equation is questionable. The casting of British actor Tom Hardy as the colossally built, Latino villain suggests Nolan is aiming for something a little different than fans have seen before. Bane’s first battle with Batman in the comics was chronicled in the storyline Knightfall, where Bane wore down the Caped Crusader by making him apprehend his many villains, and then finally fought the exhausted hero and broke his back. We’re not expecting a direct translation of Knightfall, but we do imagine Bane will provide a similar sort of

The wait is long and painful for Christopher Nolan’s next Batman movie. Luckily, we know a lot more now than we did a few weeks ago. WB recently confirmed that Batman will be joined by Catwoman and Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

challenge that pushes Batman to his physical and mental limits. Bane is the first villain in Nolan’s films since Ra’s Al Ghul that can match Batman punch-for-punch, and we expect to see at least one battle royale between the two. Based on WB’s first promo image of Bane, it seems the villain will inhale an aerosolized form of Venom through tubes in his mask rather than a having liquid drug injected into his brain. This suggests Venom will be another compound derived from the plants grown by the League of Shadows. Ultimately, the question is where Bane will attack from. Will he pose as a legitimate ally of the GCPD? Will he muscle his way into Gotham’s fractured underworld as Joker did? Will he be the pawn of another, more secretive villain like Talia Al Ghul? Or will he operate as a free agent? Though WB dashed the rumors of Marion Cotillard playing Talia, we’re not quite ready to write her off yet. It’s not inconceivable that Miranda Tate is merely an alias for Talia as she works to get closer to Brice and avenge her father’s death. If Ra’s al Ghul is appearing via flashbacks, then surely his organization must have some role in the story. Regardless, expect the movie to feature at least some scenes outside of Gotham. Nolan has reportedly scouted locations in Asia, suggesting a return to the League of Shadows perhaps...? New Orleans has also been named as a possible location. Scouting in Romania is probably due to the need for a new Batcave set. Definitely expect Batman to make use of the rebuilt Wayne Manor and Batcave in this sequel, as well as the inevitable new suit and other gadgets cooked up by Lucius Fox. While the plot for the Dark Knight Rises seems very dark

and grim, we’re ultimately expecting a more uplifting ending for Batman than before. This is the end of Nolan’s trilogy. The very name of the movie suggests a more redemptive outcome.

SUPERMAN, THE MAN OF STEEL MOVIE HENRY CAVILL INTERVIEW What was the last Halloween costume that you wore?

tastic. You get fully immersed in the world. It’s a wonderful experience.

Cavill: Actually, I dressed up as Superman this last Halloween.

How big was your smile when you finally landed Man of Steel?

Did you ever dress up as Superman when you were a kid?

Cavill: [laughs] My smile was absolutely enormous. I was trying very, very hard to play it cool on the phone with Zack Snyder when he called me. I thought, “Okay, play it cool. Not too cool, obviously. But, play it cool.” As soon as I hung up, I was leaping up and down and running up and down the stairs and roaring and shouting, and then trying to call everyone. No one picked up their phones !

Cavill: Yeah! Yeah, I think all of my brothers did at some stage. I know you can’t get into specifics on Man of Steel, but what has surprised you about making the film thus far? Cavill: I haven’t had any surprises. It’s a really long shoot. The stuff we were shooting in Chicago…it feels like an age ago, it feels like a different movie altogether. I’ve been a part of this project for a while and been in pre-production since April. It’s fan-

Cavill: I avoided watching anything which was someone else’s interpretation of the source material. I didn’t go back to the movies and watch them. I didn’t go back to the TV series and watch them. I didn’t want to take that and have that influence my interpretation and my performance of the character. Where the character truly comes from is not from the movies or the TV shows; it’s from the comic books. So I went straight to the comic books and had stacks of them and just read and read and read.The comic books were my source of material, the TV shows and movies were other interpretations.

What did you try to take in from the previous material that’s been released and possibly incorporate into your version of Clark Kent/the Man of Steel?

he comic-book hero Superman, when Jerome “Jerry” Siegel first created him, was originally a villain modeled on Nietzsche’s idea (see “The Reign of the Super-Man”). He was re-invented as a hero by his eventual designer, Joseph “Joe” Shuster, after which he bore little resemblance to the previous character, though he still had dubious morals. Only as the series progressed did Superman become the wholesome, morally upright figure of modern times. However, Superman does find an adversary in the mold of the Nietzschean Übermensch in the recurring arch-villain Lex Luthor,[citation needed] his greatest enemy on Earth. A direct reference to the term occurs in the episode “Double Trouble” of the TV series Adventures of Superman, in which a Germanspeaking character calls the title character “verfluchter Übermensch” (“cursed Superman”).In the tenth season of the show Smallville, an alternate Lionel Luthor refers to Clark as the “Übermensch”.

Nietzsche exactly meant is unknown, but a rough translation of what he said “All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is the ape to man? A laughingstock or a painful embarrassment. And man shall be just that for the Übermensch: a laughingstock or a painful embarrassment…” It is commonly seen as a greater being; over the average human, this concept has been attributed to ideas of power superiority. It’s the

Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher, once introduced a concept of Übermensch. The name came from the concept about ordinary humanity believing there would be no morals or reasons to live if there was no Other to define morality and reason. Transcending this illusion makes one an “over-man”.This was a person, or for us, a character, who rejects the norms of society and lives by his own moral code. What exactly he meant by that is not 100% certain, but people throughout the decades have translated it as “overman” “overhuman” and more commonly “superman”. Thus Spoke Zarathustra, one of his written works, also includes an appearance of “God is Dead”, eternal recurrence and the Übermensch. What

difference between the average man and the superman. Eugenics and Racial Superiority aside, this idea is powerful, after his “God is Dead and We Killed Him” deal, meaning the idea of “God” (religion and spirituality) is no longer able to act as a source of any moral code or teleology (doctrine explaining their phenomena by their purposes). The Übermensch can be seen as a goal or limit for humanity to reach. To create something beyond ourselves, to be stronger, smarter, faster, etc – simply better. This ultimate achievement for mankind has been interpreted different ways, and for this, its attribution to the superhero. Hitler’s superior race could be seen as his interpretation for the Übermensch, plus he really admired

LEX LUTHOR

CULTURE

DC’s Superman is the most common parallel between Nietzsche’s Übermensch and a modern superman. In his first pre-Action Comics appearance, Reign of the Super-Man, his conception was built on this Übermensch idea. In fact, some say that’s where the name originated from. Personally, I don’t see Superman as this Übermensch. First, he is not human and should not be considered above mankind. He could be seen as an alien invader trying to conquer humanity, but he is moral. Second, he was born as an overman; he didn’t choose to become powerful. Lastly, in his first pre-Action Comics appearance he was evil, morally deprived and searching to conquer the world, if that was Siegel’s first intention. The modern superhero is starting to be considered as a modern retelling of the Übermensch. I see other characters such as Batman, Daredevil, even Lex Luthor as better models for Nietzsche’s idea. They are all humans, and have pushed themselves above human capacity. Batman trained to the peak of human perfection. Daredevil’s blindness didn’t “disable” him, rather allowed him to master and heighten other human skills. Lex Luthor intelligence has made him fearless of Superman, a being capable to destroy him. These characters reach beyond a good and evil morality, they struggle with moral choices and human limits. Unlike Superman, who is a moral saint, invisible yet an obedient boy scout. As comic book characters evolve, and our society is more tolerable, the superhero genre mirrors serious issues. Nietzsche would have never imagined that his Übermensch concept would have been compared to Superman, but then again he might have never though of someone like Hitler doing the same. I’ve heard from a lot of people that Superman is the perfect example of the “Superman” theory, I disagree. What do you guys think? Does he have to be a human? What about the growing comparison to the superhero? Could all comic book heroes have been founded on this idea? Who is the perfect candidate for the Übermensch?

NEW DC COMICS LOGO

I

t’s a new era at DC Entertainment and the new look reflects a dynamic, bold approach while at the same time celebrates the company’s rich heritage and robust portfolio of characters. It was just a few months ago that Superman, Batman and many of our other Super Heroes were updated when we launched DC Comics – The New 52 and now it’s time to do the same for the company’s identity while remaining true to the power of storytelling which is still at the heart of DC Entertainment. The design of the new DC Entertainment identity uses a “peel” effect the D is strategically placed over the C with the upper righthand portion of the D peeling back to unveil the hidden C symbolizing the duality of the iconic characters that are present within DC Entertainment’s portfolio. Here is a little recap of the Dc comics brand identity since its beginning : 1940

T

he Superman logo, also known as the Superman shield is the emblem for the superhero Superman. This iconic emblem is also referred to as the “S” shield. This logo served as a template for future characters such as Batman and Spiderman. As the original super-hero he and his symbol were the foundation upon which the comics industry has been built.Throughout the time of Superman he has had many different logos. Each logo represents and describes things about superman. The artist that designed these logos usually designed them according to the type of surroundings and the costume that Superman wore during that time aio.

There are however many dialects to this language : - Kandorian - Vath - Twenx - Urrikan - Lurvanish

pparently, nothing is impossible for a superhero. We knew they could fly, jump, run at incredible speeds and heights. Now they can also move on the covers of these comic books. This brilliant idea was thought by an artist and blogger Kerry Callen. Mr Callen is an American comic book artist who has a passion for old and rare Comic books He decides to create an animated version of some of the most favous comic books covers! These covers come to life through the magic of gif animation. The result is really nice, see for yourself and enjoy !Em auda aut faccus experis sinum evenisquam, saest omnihilita dolorer aectis sae

VINTAGE POSTERS

ou can find great things on the web when it comes to revisiting the classics. This is precisely Noveir Arian, a young french artist of 27 years. His work is remarkable as her revisits the world of comic books. He found a new way to represent these famous heroes as they are drawn with paint splatters effects. Everything was done on Photoshop using many layers, brushes and mixing colors to give a stunning result and very close to a classical painting. Ne volorio te intiam doloreperit por aute sectenis aut amente naturiam, sae volendant amet ea qui core el im qui antem re excesti res estrum il is modiantisi bearum.

Superhero is nothing without his alter ego that humanizes him. Batman AKA Bruce Wayne, Superman AKA Clark Kent etc...Danny Haas decided to merge the 2 faces of each of these symboles of the comic culture as to create a “two face� portrait of each characters.Here is a beautiful vintage serie that makes a worthy tribute to the classics.Ulparcitis estrum inctem fugitae sae cum sam sinumquis rat et hillenia Voluptat mint aditata temoloribus.Pudae auda nam, quisti tem quias exped moluptate por am que discidus et illendi comnis volorem aut ut re, que con re sim quaerempos dolore.Milla sinciaspe re cus volupti onecte.

s it gets closer to Thanksgiving, some of us look forward to the public spectacle of giant balloons floating through NYC streets that is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.This vintage shot from the 1940 parade shows a simpler balloon version of the Man of Steel taking his place in the parade. Boy, parade balloons sure have come a long way! Indeed Superman has always been larger then life!The New York Times reported that the 80-foot tall with a chest 23 feet across Superman balloon dominated the parade. The presence of this figure of strength spoke to a desire to bolster patriotism and the might of the nation. Us et lacculpa nosae explabo rroreni ssequae nobitat aquissit offic tem venem.

he Indonesian photographer Agan Harashap seems to appreciate temporal paradoxes. Just take a look at his collection of pictures of superheroes to be convinced. He merged several images from Superheroes movies to more or less recent pictures of war, including pictures of the WWII. An amazing arrangement that will remind some of the credits of the movie Watchmen but Zack Snyder.
