    While I thought these would mostly be one-shots, this ends on a cliffhanger that leads into the Cyclone issue. It takes a bit to figure out where all this fits into the world of previous DC movies, but I'm definitely interested in seeing more of these characters. Read Full Review

    This entire book is a great beginning for a new franchise. It's nice to see books like these truly being used to flesh out characters and concepts leading to the film. Hopefully the film can pay off this level of talent and artistry. Read Full Review

    The entire time I am reading this, I am thinking hey it is the invincible Iron-Man with wings! Like a smooth James Rhodes character. And I keeping hearing the 1960s Iron-Man cartoon theme song in my head, while reading this comic.

    This science-fiction movie-based version of Hawkman Carter Hall battles a science-fiction empowered version of Gentleman Ghost James Craddock. The nanotechnology suit based Hawkman in this "alternate universe" (new DC universe?) has a partner working with him named Jeremy. Jeremy looks to improve Hawkman's "armor blasters" and "Hawk cruiser," using Black Adam's (apparently) "Eternium." So we have a version of Tony Stark's Iron Man with wings, and thrown in some mysticism as well.
