Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Onslaught of the Octomen

I swear I fought these octomen in Mega Man 2. I will say, the inside of the octomen's palace was pretty awesome. Even though nothing really happened here, aside from Aquaman destroying the entire city of octomen, I liked it quite a bit. In fact, the designs throughout the episode were a lot of fun and the villains were a lot more interesting than some of the other "alien invader types." What I don't understand is why Aquaman couldn't just telepathically control the octomen.

For the Love of Pete (Parker) Heres Another Terrible Glimpse of the Lizard

What in the world is Sony thinking? I guess they aren't ready reveal the Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man just yet, so rather than giving fans a decent image to pick apart we are left with terrible glimpses from marketing tie-ins, this time the culprit being Mega Blocks. The worst part of all of this is that the Mega Blocks image gives us the best look so far and all I can say is the Lizard looks ridiculous.

See Lois Lane as Wonder Woman, Again

Not wanting that cancelled pilot Wonder Woman costume to go to waste,the character of Wonder Woman was somehow worked into the series Harry's Law. I honestly don't really care to know any more about that show, but the first images of Smallville's Lois Lane (Erica Durance in real life) have surfaced.

Counting Down the Most Anticipated Superhero Shows of 2012 (11-19)

Although the sun is setting on 2011, one of the most prolific years ever for superhero shows, 2012 aims to raise the bar even higher. Not only are massive amounts of new shows planned for the upcoming year, but the A-listers are being tapped. While Wolverine and Superman, both originally planned for 2012 releases, scurried off to less crowded pastures, 2012 still promises to be plenty busy. And though any superhero show may at least offer a hint of promise, I can't be super excited for all of them. Here is the ranking of my anticipation for announced shows planned to debut in the upcoming year:

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Microscopic Monsters

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Vassa, Queen of the Mermen

Evil mermen, robot whales, the return of Mera! I must be in heaven. Mera got swallowed by a whale Jonah style unleashing the wrath of Aquaman. After sending a few waves of sharks to their death against the whale rays, Aquaman ripped apart one of the robots by hand. Electric eels took care of another and another one he rammed with a real whale. Funny how a flesh whale tore apart one made of steel. After defeating Vassa, "Princess of Whales" Aquaman just let her go home even though she vowed to return. Maybe Aquaman deserves some of the trouble he gets if he is dumb enough to allow his enemies to regroup and try again.

Spotlight on Captain Cold

Since 1957 Captain Cold has attempted to put the Scarlet Speedster on ice. Despite his Captain's rank, Cold has never reached the levels of popularity or recognition of the Batman's civilian foe Mr. Freeze - for whom he is frequently mistaken.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Deadly Drillers

If for nothing else, you have to give Aqualad credit. He could have gone the lazy way and called himself "Aquaboy," but he classed it up a bit with the lad suffix, which begs the question, "Is there an Aqualass?" Google says no, but there is an Aquagirl. Anyways, believe it or not, there are actually two Aqualads. The first and best known was named Garth. In the comics, Garth began as a sidekick and then like Robin came into his own taking on a new hero codename, Tempest. He eventually died. The second Aqualad, just recently introduced, was named Jackson. Jackson happened to be the son of none other than Aquaman's nemesis Black Manta and yet he too thought "lad" was a fitting moniker.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Ice Dragon

The episode opened like something off the SyFy network with an underwater ice dragon battling some sort of sharktopus. After getting trapped in ice with A-Lad, Aquaman proved its not what you can do, but who you know, when he recruited some saw faced fish and a hammer head shark to bust him out. Eventually Aquaman tricked the dragon into trapping itself inside an iceberg and he was perfectly content shipping the dragon off to the arctic for someone else to deal with.
