The Outsiders of The New 52 (Not the actual team)

We all have complained once or twice about characters that have been erased from the timeline that is what we call The New 52. Two more notably characters are Donna Troy and Wally West. These two are the initial characters that most fans complain about. My suggestion or idea is for DC to publish a book about a group of characters that were erased from the New 52 universe but have been stuck in a pocket universe similar to the story arc where Superman and Lois Lane of Earth-2, Alexander Luthor of Earth-3, and Superboy-Prime were stranded outside the universe and forced to watch the events of the universe unfold in INFINITE CRISIS. Instead make it also similar to the story arc from COUNTDOWN TO FINAL CRISIS where Donna Troy, Jason Todd, and Kyle Rayner searched for Ray Palmer. Basically, make it Donna Troy, Wally West, and a few others somehow getting trapped outside the New 52 and being thrusted into it and still keeping a knowledge of the Pre-Flashpoint timeline. And ironically name them THE OUTSIDERS. Or maybe SECRET SIX (if there are six characters). Both could work here. Most likely if this were to happen, they would make this toward the end of the New 52 existing and creating some new Flashpoint sequel event or something that causes the universe to change back but it could just be there in the new universe and continue to co-exist much like WORLD'S FINEST being Earth-2 characters trapped on Earth-0.

So how do you feel about this idea? Would it work? What other characters would you want to see in the book? Ted Kord? Freddy Freeman? Black Lightning? Cassandra Cain? Connor Hawke? Mia Dearden?



With THE DARK KNIGHT RISES being the last film in the Batman franchise for who knows how long, there are rumors going around that there should be new movies based on other characters in the Bat-Universe. A blog from The Nerdy Bird showed her take for a BIRDS OF PREY movie. With Laura Prepon as Oracle, Diane Kruger as Black Canary, Charlize Theron as Lady Blackhawk, and Nikki Reed as Huntress. I agree with her on her choices, for the most part anyway. My idea is for a NIGHTWING movie set in Bludhaven. C'mon, it's not that far-fetched when you really think about it. He has the skills to carry his own as a hero. He has a presence that can work in a movie. He has his own rogue gallery that could fit into a movie. I think this can work. He has his own set of fans that would keep the buzz going. And if you make the trailer just right, you can ride off the coattails of the Batman trilogy.
Milo Ventimiglia as Dick Grayson / Nightwing
Personally, he is my favorite actor. He is no stranger to the superhero world, being the main character, arguably, on HEROES. His character, Peter Petrelli, was my favorite character in the whole series. His abilities were much like Rogue from the X-Men but the powers stayed within him constantly until his father stole all his powers and he had to inject himself with a formula to gain new powers. From then on, he could only absorb one power at a time. I think he has the chops to be Nightwing. And I don't seem to be the only one who thinks so. There are photoshopped images online of him in the Nightwing suit.

I'm sure he can pull off the long hair. And I'm sure he can pull off the built body. And I know he can look good in a Dick Grayson style business suit. And he can do the cop thing too.

Michael Clark Duncan as Roland Desmond / Blockbuster
I know he played the Kingpin in the Daredevil movie and this would be similar but, c'mon, its similar enough to work. You just give him the enlarged head and longish hair or something and it could work just fine. He'd be the big crime boss of Bludhaven.

John Malkovich as Dudley Soames / Torque
You can either make him the dirty cop who becomes Torque in a sequel or you can make him change halfway through the movie like the Two-Face of the movie. Either way, I think it can happen.

Ian Ziering as Shrike
Tell me you don't think this could work? He has voiced Harry Osborn on MTV's version of the Spider-Man animated series.

As for love interests, you could keep Laura Prepon as Oracle or you can bring in one of his other girlfriends like Bridget Clancy. Or you can make up a new one like Rachel Dawes was. What do you guys think?

The DC Revamp Kills the Teen Titans

 Teen Titans #1
Alright, I know what you're thinking. "DC is killing off the Teen Titans? Deathstroke's dreams have finally come true?" No nothing to that extent. But the thing is, the DC Revamp has really screwed with the Teen Titans' history.

I've always been a big fan of the Teen Titans and their history. I know just about every Titan on a first name basis and I feel as though I've always been a Titan myself. But everything is way different now.

First off, we have Dick Grayson back to being Nightwing. I always loved Nightwing but look at him. He's not the same Nightwing we knew from before.

Then we have Garth, if you didn't notice, is nowhere to be found. Rumors are, he doesn't exist anymore. Before the revamp, he died during Blackest Night and has been replaced by the new Aqualad. In the DCnU, he doesn't seem to have ever existed.

As for Wally West, I'm not sure if he exists or not. Barry Allen is the Flash and Bart Allen is Kid Flash. Nobody really knows if Wally West really exists at all in the DCnU. There is also a chance that the current Kid Flash is actually Wally, not Bart.

DC has admitted that Donna Troy does not exist in the DCnU at all. She was not the original Wonder Girl. She was not a founder of the Teen Titans. She did not date Kyle Rayner or Roy Harper. She did not die and return from the dead. She did not participate in Blackest Night. She doesn't exist.

Roy Harper is really off the wall right now. In the DCnU, he is a member of the Outlaws with Jason Todd and Starfire. First of all, we have no idea if he's known as Arsenal, Red Arrow, Speedy, or whatever. We don't know if he and Cheshire had a daughter named Lian. We don't know if he was ever even in the Titans. We don't know how his relationship with Green Arrow is. He hasn't even lost his arm in the DCnU and has some weird tattoo on it.

Cyborg is now a member of the Justice League. Rumors are going around that in the DCnU, he's a founder of the League and was part of the original 7, not Martian Manhunter.

Starfire is member of the Outlaws. She seems the same besides her costume getting smaller and smaller the more we see her. But it seems farfetched that her history is still intact.

Beast Boy and Raven don't seem to be anywhere to be found. I was hoping at least those two would be on the new team.

Jericho and Ravager seem to be whispers in the wind when it comes to whether or not they exist. Everything that happened between the stories of the big 9, and the team Geoff Johns created seems to be questionable.

Tim Drake is said to be " forced to step out from behind his keyboard when an international organization seeks to capture or kill super-powered teenagers." He is also called "Red Robin, Batman's former sidekick." He looks so much younger than he was before the revamp.

 Teen Titans #2
As for Superboy, nobody really knows how that works...

Cassie Sandsmark is listed as a " belligerent powerhouse thief known as Wonder Girl." Kinda makes sense towards the idea of her stealing those artifacts in her origin story, it's still weird. Her connection to Wonder Woman is questionable.

Bart Allen (or Wally West) is listed as " a hyperactive speedster calling himself Kid Flash." Nobody knows how that works. He looks nothing similar to Barry Allen's costume.

I just don't like that the Teen Titans got the crap end of the deal. What do you guys think?
I think I figured out the new origin story based on the solicitations of the first 2 issues.
Teen Titans #1:

Tim Drake, Batman's former sidekick, is back in action when an international organization seeks to capture, kill, or co-opt super-powered teenagers. As Red Robin, he's going to have to team up with the mysterious and belligerent powerhouse thief known as Wonder Girl and the hyperactive speedster calling himself Kid Flash to stand any chance at all against a living, breathing weapon with roots in another world! They, along with a few other tortured teen heroes, will be the Teen Titans!

Teen Titans #2:

A strange creature haunts the streets of Los Angeles... And because of this creature's age, both Red Robin and N.O.W.H.E.R.E. are racing to find her, but neither side is prepared for the horror known as Bugg! Meanwhile, Superboy is on a collision course with the team, and Kid Flash plots his escape from N.O.W.H.E.R.E. with the most unexpected of allies!

Basically, I figured that it will be something like the episode of Teen Titans during Season 5 called "Go!". Red Robin discovers this girl named Bugg in Los Angeles and this organization called N.O.W.H.E.R.E. has been capturing super-powered teens. They have Kid Flash and they want Bugg. Red Robin and Wonder Girl end up teaming up to rescue Bugg. And Superboy, in some connection to his programming, goes straight for the Teen Titans. It's quite odd but plausible. There is room for more info to change how it works.

Everyone has to see this...

Please just watch this video. Guaranteed to entertain.

You'll be doing me a solid. Trust me.

EDIT: This is my 6 year old cousin, Parker. He loves to do random dancing around the house and he loves the song in this video. I do make videos on a regular basis but this one was made for him because he wanted to be in a viral video.

I Could Use Some Support From You Guys!

Hey guys, if you didn't already know, my real name is Jessie Galindo. I come on here daily and interact with a lot of you. I have at least 100 followers here on the site. But right now I am going to ask you all for your support. This isn't the type of thing where I ask for prayers or something because something bad happened. This is nothing like that. 
Right now, I am attempting to get popular on YouTube. Well I am pretty sure I have the potential to do it but I'm not getting a lot of reactions. Most people have been too lazy to even watch my videos when I ask them. And most people will watch but never subscribe. I'm pretty sure most of you at least have a YouTube account. 
My video production company is called IAB Productions. We have 3 channels. 
IABProductions: 19 videos. 36 subscribers. (Our main videos: Comedy sketches, song parodies, and original music videos.)
jgalindo1428: 11 videos. 17 subscribers. (My personal channel: The Messy Mondays vlog and the series called Silent But Deadly.)
cupcakeburritos: 3 videos. 8 subscribers. (My friend's personal channel: Comedy shorts and blooper videos.)

We even have a website, a Myspace page, a Facebook fan page, and a Twitter account.

So I'm asking you all, please subscribe to my channels and support a fellow Comic Viner! 
I sometimes wear my Comic Vine shirt in my videos. And I do give out shout outs as well! 

Here are some of our great videos! 

If you could support us, it'd be very appreciated.

Figured Out: The Superman Reboot

So this is the premiere of my new blog series called FIGURED OUT. This is where I figure things out for you guys. (Not that you can't do it yourself.) I honestly don't know how often this is going to come out but this seemed like the perfect starter. 

The Superman Reboot... Well what do we know? 
  • Christopher Nolan is the Godfather of the movie. 
  • Deborah Snyder and Emma Thomas are also producing. 
  • The Script is being written by Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan, and David S. Goyer. 
  • Zack Snyder is directing. 
  • They're rebooting the entire series. 
  • Brandon Routh is not the star. 
But here is where everyone is confused. Who is playing Superman and other characters, and who is the villain? 
Sara Lima reported Christopher Nolan announcing how his casting will go here. And if you missed it, he said that he wanted an all-star cast full of Hollywood's biggest stars. Now as for the villains, everyone is tired of Lex Luthor and people are begging for Darkseid or Doomsday. Honestly, you cannot put Darkseid or Doomsday in the beginning of Superman's story. And you seriously can't start off Superman's story without Lex Luthor. We had the rumor that Zod was the villain but that was just a rumor. 
Here is what I believe everyone missed. I remember reading an article posted on this site by either G-Man or Babs, stating that Christopher Nolan announced that the villains in the movie were going to be Lex Luthor and Brainiac. I went to search for it so that you call could see my source but as I was searching, I found nothing. Either it was deleted or I was on crack. (And I don't do drugs... Except that time I overdosed on caffeine through tons of Dr. Pepper.) I'm still pretty sure that what I read was true. 
So maybe I don't have it all figured out. But we're pretty close so far. And now that we've gone through all that, I ask you to watch this video I came across on YouTube where Tom Welling is in a Superman movie with a bunch of epic villains. 
We have villains like Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Zod, and Parasite. Now that would just be too much...

Idea for Smallville Spinoff

I have an idea for a spinoff to SMALLVILLE but it doesn't look like it would last longer than two seasons. It's called LEAGUE. Just expand on the concept it already has just like JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED expanded on the JUSTICE LEAGUE idea. Make it an actual team show and dive deeper into JLA storylines and possibly lead into a Clark/Lois wedding in the second season. It would reach a higher level of awesomeness if more heroes than just Clark and Oliver joined the cast and not just made cameos and guest appearances.

What do you guys think? Who do you think should make up the official team?
