The first trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has emerged and is full of flaming skulls, vomit, and urine. Nice to see they decided to class things up for the 2012 Nic Cage helmed Ghost Rider sequel / reboot. Still, looks like it could be fun.

When an orange chameleon alien hatched from a meteorite and started eating train tracks, I knew it was going to be a bad day. Even though the Iron Eater later impersonated the Man of Steel, Superman reigned triumphant and went to his old standby of hauling the creature back into space.

With the first trailer for the Ghost Rider sequel, subtitled Spirit of Vengeance, just hours away, we have been treated with a new teaser poster thanks to ComingSoon.net.I thinks its odd that this is getting made. The first did fair but was panned which means that it is unlikely that this second attempt, call it a reboot or a sequel, will do any better. Having said that, the first film did offer some amazing visuals and I expect that to be true for this one as well. Anyways, with 2012 delivering The Avengers and Batman, expect this one to be quickly forgotten,

Under the tutelage of Granny Goodness, the Female Furies are a special forces team of sorts serving Darkseid on Apokolips. The most prominent members of the team are the insane Mad Harriet, big booted Stompa, and bandage wielding Lashina.The vile villainesses first appeared in 1972's Mister Miracle #6 and although they got a late start to the party they have made a number on onscreen appearances over the past decade.
Despite the title of this segment, this was in fact Brainiac's first onscreen appearance. Something wacky must have happened with the production / airing order of the episodes. Anyway, Brainiac didn't really do much except shrink Superman and Co and then turn invisible. Then Lois got antnapped. Then Brainiac came back and the gang got enlarged.
Shooting on the upcoming Superman reboot The Man of Steel is underway and the first set photos of Amy Adams as reporter and number one Superman fan Lois Lane have been nabbed.

In one of the final episodes of Batman:The Brave and the Bold, titled Powerless! Aquaman was tasked with inspired a Captain Atom who without his powers felt useless. What better way to do it than with a hilariously inspiring song asking if you be a man or a Superman. He calls it Aquaman's Rousing Song of Heroism.
Paraphrasing his own description, Jimmy fell in a hole in a cave, landed on a giant toad, got captured by a dragon, and then fell into a giant spider web. He didn't even mention the giant toothed bird.
