Before I can go further into this, I have to say that the episode “Patriot Act” Season 3 Ep 7, is one of my top favourite episodes the Justice League has ever produced.
It starts out with a typical “American” opening I guess, with them defeating Nazis. (Nothing screams America louder).
So the new trailers from Justice League and Wonder Woman has dropped and my-oh-my
Batman v Superman is the most conflicted I have ever felt about any superhero movie, actually any movie when I think about it. Because what they get right they get amazingly right, and what doesn’t work well really takes you out of the whole cinematic or viewing experience.
let’s start with a few things, this is not going to be a review of the film but more of how I felt when watching it, and re-watching it and rewatching it. (bear-in-mind this film is close to 3 hours long, so that’s a lot of time I’m not getting back).
I was thinking about this randomly and I thought “is a sad back story good?”
Heroes, especially known ones, tend to have a loss. Most people in the Comic book universe do but if you want to feel for a character and care about them then it almost seems like a requirement.
If you can’t tell, this is referring to Injustice: Gods Among Us. But not the game, the comic series.
What a read.
To make things short and simple I will explain what happens but briefly then give my take on how it is dealt with, also this obviously has spoilers.
Not even the strongest man around can escape the harsh reality of death.
So who killed him?
My number 9 seems to be a legionnaire (For those that don’t know what I meant, I mean from the Legion of Superheroes).
Now, this is the first time I’m speaking of the Legion of Superheroes so I’ll briefly state what they’re about.
