Is your favorite version of Supergirl/woman?
What's on your mind?
Being a white kid, you might think that I would not understand Tommy and Roberta’s feeling of being outsiders.
Well, I can. I liked the Captain Desmo reference in part 2, and the plot about Superman’s journey of self-discovery. The awkward “gurgly stomach” moment was not really something Roberta should have let on. However, what I was really looking for was a character to identify with.
Atom-Man? No, I don’t believe in that Master Race garbage.
That weird girl who says “you Chinese are so brave!” No, I don’t openly categorize people (although Roberta’s vomit moment was not something she should have spilled the beans about.)
The science aide who we all thing is going to be evil when we first see him (the one who says “Must be real nice.”) but it turns out that his boss is the evil one? No
It’s gotta be Chuck Riggs.
Being white in a time of minority power and worries that everyone will only see me as an oppressor, I so identify with Chuck when he says “I want to know that my family’s not evil!”
So, I recently read the one-off comic “Villains Grant Vol 1 1” Father O'Doul appears to commit suicide after being diagnosed with stage 4 Cancer, having killed himself during the "Balyushka!" Contests, this particular individual isn’t in any other of my comics except the one.
Questions I have:
What are this characters other appearances. (If any)
Did he survive
Who is he?

Once, I could have sworn that I read somewhere that Roman Sionis (Black Mask) had a female accomplice sometime in his career, and that she possibly wore a mask. (Similarly to Alicia Hunt) I believe that this was in New Earth. I cannot find any record of this character existing. This could be the Mandela Effect or I may be thinking of a different character entirely.
Thought this was super interesting for anyone who loves all things DC. Phil LaMarr -- the voice of Green Lantern -- on the latest episode of the Fanaddicts podcast talking about his obsession with Batman comic books.
I was looking at wikipedia about the awfal 97s batman and Robin movie and the related articles are this...(am also new here btw)
I really hate that almost everyone on this Wiki is like "Snyder movies & Arrowverse bad, everything else good" It's so annoying.

Welcome. To the first post on the topic... The Worst DC Movies in history. Our first instalment in this hopefully harmless saga... is the 2013 Superman Movie "Man Of Steel" Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill.
I'd like to open by confessing that I did not actually rewatch this movie recently as I said I would. I'm serious when I say that I couldn't bring myself to. I watched Detective Pikachu instead. Zero regrets, that movie's a 7.5/10, it's pretty fun.
Instead, I will still review the film. Because I remember it. Almost by heart. I've watched scenes and breakdowns since viewing the movie for the first time and at this point remember it better than I remember some movies I've watched many more times than it. Don't worry, I'm still a reliable source. I promise I'll watch the next movie, and I'll force myself to do it.
So without further ado, let's look at Man Of Steel... and score it because it's a stupid grading system that somehow still works.
Scene By Scene Breakdowns:
So the movie gets the classic Superman origin story correct, and it even throws in some content on Krypton moments before and during its destruction. These parts are... not bad. They definitely make the movie longer, and sometimes it feels as if it's just there for that purpose (To extend the film's run time) but I'll admit it's an alright way to start the film. Sometimes more subtle approaches to starting a Superhero Movie work better than this though. It also doesn't help that the scene itself is incredibly long, it lasts like 15 whole minutes and all it really is is Krypton blowing up and Superman's Bio-Daddy punching some bad guys or something. Eventually little baby Kal-El is shot to space and Krypton blows up. We all know the rest.
The next... while... of the movie focuses on Clark's life growing up. In fact, I think it also focuses on his present day life too... at the same time? Basically it cuts between Present and Past day, showing multiple "Flashbacks" and "Flashforwards" both taking turns on screen. This method of storytelling rarely works in my opinion, and even though this film has more bearable moments within it, it doesn't make up for the fact this isn't an intriguing way to tell about the character's past. My advice: don't do this, do it the traditional way... either by going in chronological order of events or by having a few flashbacks only when they can also relate to the current situation the character is in. Anyways, during this, Clark's Adopt-O-Daddy is kind of a dick... he really doesn't want anyone to know about Clark's powers. I mean this is interesting to toy with but it's done very poorly here... especially when he fucking dies when he stops his grown son from saving him to ensure his powers aren't revealed yet. His death scene is also kinda stupid. The hurricane, or tornado, or whatever the hell it was (Forgive me for not remembering every minor detail) pretty much comes out of nowhere and kills Johnny Kent. Ok then.
The parts of Present-Day Superman (which I admit I liked, it was cool to see how Grown Up Clark could deal with tough situations while still staying loyal to his father and not exposing his powers just yet) eventually lead up to him discovering a Kryptonian Ship on Earth or something and then getting a Supersuit [Insert Frozone Meme] which he takes for a little test drive by flying around. I thought this part was well shot. It was a pretty neat scene. Normally I'm not a huge fan of Snyder's Filming Style (which, we will get into later) but I think the effects were cool here. People praise Snyder for his Montage Scenes, and I can't argue that. Even the montages in Batman V Superman were pretty cool.
And now there's the bad guy. ZOD!!!! He was apparently a very dangerous man on Krypton and did some mean stuff to Superman's Bio-Daddy, and now he's been freed from the Phantom Zone, along with his comrades, Bill and Blake. Those are totally their names. Totally not names I made up to replace the names I forgot since they were such meaningless characters. Bill and Blake. Sidekicks to Zod. Yes. Anyways, now they're on earth, and I think they want to fight the Kryptonian who is on the planet, I think. There's not much to remember in this part of the movie but...
...now this is where it gets bonkers. The last hour of this... is just pure destruction. Borderline apocalyptic mass city levelling. It starts when the Zod Squad goes to the Kent Farm, threaten Clark's Adopto-Mommy, and then Superman loses it and destroys a 7-Eleven while battling Zod. And honestly, I cried more at this part than I did at Johnny Boy's death. Rather see him go than the Slurpees! Heh... and it only gets bonkers-er from here. Fast forward 50 minutes and the entire city is just... wow, it's completely destroyed. This was one of the DCEU's biggest mistakes, because in my opinion, you should never start off a trilogy, saga, or collection of movies by introducing this much destruction in the very first movie. It would make the next movies feel bland in comparison, because you've already seen worst-case scenarios, and also, Jesus Christ there was just way too much damage. Yeah it shows Superman can't do his 'job' perfectly but come on, I don't blame the city for hating him after there literally was no city left. If you got your mind sucked into this destruction and your brain just said "Fuck it, I like this movie because it's got explosions now" I pity you. You can like this movie for other reasons, and it's really okay to like this one because it's really not that horrible, but if you only got interested in it from the mass destruction, then maybe you gotta stop watching WWE. It's hurting ye brain!
And finally the battle ends with Superman whipping Zod's neck around and killing him. I've made fun of this part enough in my own mind an in other discussions, so I really don't want to waste anymore time on it. But it's somehow more humorous than it is serious. Just like Gwen's death in ASM2 (*Thwack*). And the city is half battered up and half just completely fucking wrecked. What a satisfying ending... no wait there's a little more. It ends with Superman becoming Clark Kent... ("Wait isn't it the other way around?" "Nope that's how it went" ) and that's it for Man Of Steel.
Zod. Yup, Zod is the best part of this movie. His actor (Michael Shannon) seems to be the only one embracing his role and delivers an outstanding performance here. Sure it's cringey and over-the-top at times, and yes it may have been terrible in a better movie, say, Infinity War, but since it's so relieving and fresh in comparison to the rest of the blandness in acting the movie offers, it's a somehow great performance.
Effects. It goes without saying that the fight choreography in the DC Movies is far superior to that of the Marvel Movies. Every blow just seems to land and rattle the victim more than the marshmallow hand punches the MCU's Action Karate Scenes have. And even though the destruction is excessive, it looks good, at least.
Russel Crowe. He was so good in Gladiator. He was meh here but the fact the film had the balls to cast Russel Crowe just makes me laugh. Satirical Success Point!
Soundtrack. Hans Zimmer? Awesome. Perfect choice for any DC Movie and he does stellar here.
Acting other than Michael Shannon. Everyone is so fucking boring. And bland. And lifeless. The worst performance was Henry Cavill, Superman himself. He brings little to no emotion, flavour, or uniqueness to the role he was assigned, and literally could've been replaced by some random street hobo who would have delivered either the relatively same or better effect on Superman's role that Cavill did. SUPERMAN IS NOT BORING, HENRY. Other terrible performances include Amy Adams.
Zack Snyder. No he's not a direct flaw on the film but let's talk about him for a brief minute since this review has to end soon. ZACK CLEARLY DOESN'T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT SUPERMAN TO MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT HIM. The exact same goes for Batman, who will be talked about entirely on its own in the BvS Review. The trailers for this movie built it up to be something special, something cool, something that Superman Fans expect to be done to perfection. Well that can't happen when Zack doesn't know enough about the man of steel to make Man Of Steel (See what I did there? Cleverrrrrrrrr). He portrayed Superman as a lifeless demigod who really didn't care for human life that much in this movie. Don't argue that he did, because if that were truly the case, I doubt he'd be that reckless in the final battle. All the elements that made Superman Superman were completely lacking in this movie or just not even there at all. It got worse in BvS, just like most things did, but still, Superman's Terrible Writing in these films really originated and was present here too.
Boring. This movie's boring. The entire first half is so boring and isn't done well (Like I mentioned for Act 2 and 3) and it takes the longest time for things to wake you up, and even then, the final battle lacks so much flavour and power. It's literally just two super-strong men flying around and crashing into each other for a full hour.
This movie's like a 4.5/10. It's not that bad but it's far from good. This is really all I have to say for now, I'm tired.
Final Score: 4.5 / 10 (D+)
Thanks for reading this review, if you did read all of it, and of course let me know your review for this movie in the replies and try to avoid toxicity as always, it's what will keep this series running, hopefully. If people get too out of hand over opinions then I'll have to shut the shit down. And considering this is only the first instalment, it'd be pathetic if I had to do that.
A reminder that you might not disagree with my points and statements made in this review, and that's acceptable, but if you disagree, don't be an ass about it. Calmly let me know if I missed anything or possibly misunderstood anything, and remember I have the right to say I disagree with your disagreeing. This stuff happens all the time, and it's really up to you to decide how you want to go about discussing yours and everyone else's opinions.
Of course, here is the source where some users decided on what movies would be discussed in this series, and where I said I'll start with Man Of Steel. After almost falling asleep during this review (Seriously, the majority of this film is that boring) I'm going to need something to really laugh my ass off at so the next one will either be Catwoman (2003) or Batman And Robin (1998). You can also comment your opinion on which of these two should be reviewed next. I've never watched Catwoman, and only watched B&R once when I was like 6 or something, so both will be far more interesting experiences than this.
Alright, farewell for now. I'll probably create an archive for these posts soon, pending that they stay alive and well long enough to see the day.
I'm at issue 3 and I kinda like it as of now.
Or are they neutral and it only depends upon who controls them?
okay The Flash season 7 did something that was......... well really dumb and it has to be the worst and laziest thing the arrowverse ever done and it's this one character they introduced this season.
So this character right here is Fuerza......... but the thing is she doesn't looks like her at all and & instead looks like another DC character and that character is Rampage.
Like when i saw this character i saw fans pointing this out on twitter that this character was Rampage she clearly was indeed her she had the same design of her in the comics she has the yellow skin and purple outfit like her in the comics.
But then........ something very Dumb happen Cisco called her Fuerza and it was dumb but I thought to myself that this was like a nickname like a reference to that character.
Like if you remember season 1 of the show they introduced the villain Bug-Eyed Bandit but this version of the character was gender swap to a she but she had a lot of similarity with Queen Bee rather then the Bug-Eyed Bandit in the comics there had been female characters that took up the name queen bee and Cisco even did called her queen bee but in season 5 when she was called "Bug-Eyed Bandit," Brie angrily demands not to be called that name and prefers to be called Queen Bee which was more fitting since she was more based on that character and also in the book novel called The Flash Green Arrow's Perfect Shot she has a brother who is the real Bug-Eyed Bandit.
Like Dr Kitty Faulkner aka rampage was a scientist worker from S.T.A.R. Labs in So it would have made even more sense it would be her but............... No...... this character was Fuerza which just....... why? like WTF this was clearly Rampage but what this show did has to be one of the most dumbest things the Arrowverse has ever done!
Like this is what Fuerza looks like in the comics like what the hell? Why did they do this? I went on the Wikipedia and on her Wikipedia page it said her design was based on the appearance of Rampage like they knew this character was her! and I might know what happened.
I have a conspiracy that this was indeed her & she was meant to be use in a different show like she is a superman villain and I think this was a character that was supposed appear in supergirl but got scrapped but they created the CGI model of her & did not wanted it go to waste so I believe they gave it to this show to use the character but they said ''we should turn this character into a different character instead'' and someone was saying ''Should we Redesign her'' and the showrunners said ''Nah we do nothing we will call her Fuerza and call it a day i bet nobody will know it's that other character'' and yeah that's what really happened.
Like Why would they do that imagine if they did this too with other characters like imagine if Stargirl or Titans had a big black gorilla in the show in a episode everyone would say & think that this is gorilla grodd but nope it was Ultra-Humanite all along despite not looking like him at all! and instead looking like someone else everyone knows! imagine if marvel did this.
I know this show has not been what it once was it has been getting real bad and also cringe as well just like other arrowverse shows expect for superman & lois like DC's Legends of Tomorrow is very bad since season 3 and it's keep getting worst but that's something i will talk some other time but this has to be the worst thing in the arrowverse like ever did because it is very very lazy!
So I refuse to call this character Fuerza because I know dame well who this character really is because these showrunners did something they knew was wrong and just pure lazy.
Become the Star Sapphire
Was considered worthy of the Violet Lantern Ring
Fought multiple Green Lanterns at the same time
Destroyed the Anti-Monitor's armor
Defeated Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner and Black Hand
So, what do you think? Do you think these feats are accurate or not? What can you add to this list? I'm not exactly Carol's biggest fan but I think fans of both Carol and the Green Lantern mythos could know more about her. Whatever your thoughts may be, leave your comments below and please do so in a polite and friendly manner. We're all DC fans here, we just see things differently. Thank you for your time and stay safe out there!
Despite playing all the LEGO Batman games, I've never actually wrote any sort of review on them. In this review I won't be focusing on LEGO Dimensions as I never bought it (cash grabbers!) and will just focus on the main 4.
LEGO Batman: The Videogame
I loved this game so much. People can pick flaws in it, like the fact that there's no dialogue or no free roam, but I don't care. The storyline can still be understood without dialogue, in a Mr. Bean sort of way. The story itself is controlled, going after one villain and then after another in each level, until you reach the main team leader. There are 3 teams each with 5 members.
My favourite part of this game was the map. I know I said there was no free roam at the start, but what I meant was no big city. Older LEGO games (like Indiana Jones) had a much smaller map that featured trophy rooms, access to the levels and more.
The map for the game was the batcave. Frankly, it's one of my favourite batcaves in all of the games. It felt big and had a lot of detail for the time, and I liked it. You could also go to Arkham and see all of the villains you've beaten from the levels. The villains even have their own levels set just before when you played as Batman and beat them, and I love it. LEGO haven't done that in any new LEGO games and it's a shame.
The levels are fun and nicely detailed, each one in a different location that fits the villain you're fighting. DLCs in this game are controlled, as there's not 8 of them, and they don't add much to the game, but characters like Ra's Al Ghul that you could pay for if you were a Batman fan, or just wanted more characters.
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
This game will be remembered as the LEGO game that introduced dialogue. It also gave us better free roam, as we got the entire city of Gotham. Nice! It's split up into 3 sections, and you have to go around using vehicle points to scan the local surroundings and bring up gold bricks and characters on the map so you can get them later. I think the map itself was great for this game, as was the layout. My only problem is the buildings. It was never going to win awards for graphics, but they look like cardboard cutouts.
As for the unlockable characters, this game is only called DC Super Heroes. For a lot of the game you're playing as Batman and sometimes Superman. Other heroes like GL, WW and Flash come in much later. It's still very much a Batman focused game. Still, the levels are fun and the vehicles that you can unlock have more variety and feel more useful this time with better free roam.
This games' Batcave is okay, but for me it felt quite empty. Compared to the last one it was just some suits and vehicles.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
I don't mind this game. Definitely worse than the first two games but not bad, just lower quality. I'll make my main point first: it felt like a cash grab. The original 2 games didn't have too many DLCs, so it felt like you were getting a full game and they weren't targeting kids to pay them for useless content. It has 6 DLCs. That's 4 DLCs too many.
LEGO were clearly cash grabbing here like they were in LEGO Dimensions, only thus came first and it was a little more subtle. The DLCs are useless, since they feature characters that either should have been in the original game (Two Face, Scarecrow, Commissioner Gordon) or are just useless repeats of other characters (Batwoman/Batzarro, Arsenal/Green Arrow). Remember this is a Lego game so they all have similar abilities. They removed main characters so that you had to pay for them and replaced them with the likes of Platinum and Toyman.
The map of the Batcave is decent, and has plenty of detail in. It's bigger than the last two, there's references to old stories, the giant penny and the dinosaur, which I like. I think this is one of the best Batcaves in the series personally. Unfortunately, this is clearly where they spent all their time.
We got planets that were very small (you could probably fly around them in 20 seconds or less) and lacked detail, having no cities and just trees. Even Oa was just a rocky barren wasteland. There was nothing there at all.
I think LEGO Batman 3 is the worst LEGO Batman game out of them all, being simply an under-detailed cash grab that was missing a lot of key characters from the main game.
LEGO DC Super-Villains
Frankly, I think after Beyond Gotham this is a gem in comparison. The levels are nice, the characters have variety and it has a better map than any of the other games. Unfortunately, since it's a modern LEGO game and they're still trying to squeeze money out of the kids playing their games, there's now 8 DLCs and a Season Pass.
The DLCs are better on this game than the last few, as they come with characters and levels, but at the end of the day they're DLCs and still just feel like they're squeezing money from a younger audience. There's more than the last game, but it's better because they're closer to being worth the money (they still aren't).
The map is much better, including Gotham, the Batcave, Metropolis, Smallville and Arkham as different sections you can go to. This finally feels like a proper map that isn't made of cardboard and isn't only accessible via teleporters every time.
The main letdown of this game for me is the Batcave. It may as well not be there. It's practically empty and features only a few vehicle pads and batsuits, and this is because everything you need (trophies, level access) is all on the map now. The Batcave didn't even need to be in the game. Definitely disappointing in that regard.
Now for my opinions on which are the best.

So i started reading Batman comics .. i started with Batman: Year one. I'm not sure what to read next.
I've seen some suggestions like: Batman: The long Halloween and The dark knight returns.
Think about it, if you are in a battle and you just "think" that you want to win, so won't it just be that you use your "will"? Why can't the ring user just "will" every villain dead? If it's all only dependent on "will", then in the middle of a fight you could just will the opponent to lose right? And if you just don't care about the fight and think you're the strongest, then you'd have an obscene amount of will. And thus, you could simply "will" your opponent to lose. And if it is like that, then won't the rings become the most powerful weapons in existence?
Ram V's amazing run on Catwoman has a lot of new amazing characters and one of the most interesting characters is Shoe (Cheshire Cat) as Catwoman's Sidekick.
the mystery behind the 'Shoe' is Revealed in the story 'Mask' in DC FESTIVAL OF HEROES
As turn out to she the daughter of the original Cheshire and Arsenal, Lian Harper.
