The Atom

This is something that just came together at the last minute... I imagine this latest incandescent death-trap is courtesy of The Atom's arch-enemy, Dr. Light.

and another version with a bigger logo...



I'm sure the Atom will escape... after all, he is a scientist, while Dr. Light is a petty thief who couldn't give the Teen Titans a decent run for their money (at least, according to DCU continuity) Either way, when Ray Palmer returns to the DC Universe, I hope he gets the attention he deserves!

Enjoy!

Flash Family

Something I threw together on the spur of the moment. It's nice artwork by Phil Jimenez, but I think it would have been nicer to have had the hero Flashes by themselves rather than lumping the villains into the same picture.

The Team-Up You'll Never See!

Bart Allen (The Flash) and the Legion of Super-Heroes!

Not that you can see any Legionnaires... Actually, Invisible Kid is near Flash's boot, Shrinking Violet went subatomic, while the rest of the team is relaxing in their HQ as Flash enters the time stream for the trip back to the 21st century!

For those who wonder where this idea came from... I always thought that the Flash (Barry Allen, who can travel in time via his cosmic treadmill) didn't ever pop in to say hey! to the Legion more often? I mean, his kids, Dawn and Don Allen, were practically Legion reservists. So, once I found the right graphic, I was off and running! (no pun intended!)

Never mind that Bart Allen was created just before Zero Hour and that this era of the Legion came and went 25 years ago, and you can see why this team-up would never happen! Granted, as I mentioned in an earlier post, there are Legion plans afoot for next year. We've already heard the title 'Legion of Three Worlds' in a recent Justice League and it looks like upcoming Action and Superman stories are going to focus on the Legion's meaning in the Superman stories.

Once upon a time, as a teen, Clark Kent met up with some fantastic youths who claimed to be from the future. They invited Superboy to become a member of their super-hero club and so began the adventures of Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes! Until 1985.

There was a crisis. A Crisis on Multiple Earths. The timescape of the DC Universe was being altered on a massive scale and in the reimagining that John Byrne was giving Superman, it was decided he never met the Legion of Super-Heroes. Clark Kent's powers didn't manifest themselves until much later, making a Teen of Steel who time-traveled to the future for Legion meetings impossible.

And ever since then Legion continuity has become a square wedge in a round hole.

But with the new cartoon favoring Clark as a teen in the Legion, and the comics moving that way again, it might all be better soon...

Enjoy!

Space Ghost

I found a great hi-res scan of Space Ghost, designed and illustrated by none other than Alex Toth. The same Alex Toth who would work on the first incarnation of the Super Friends (yeah, the one with Wendy, Marvin, and Wonder Dog) I vividly remember watching Space Ghost. Space Ghost and his young companions, twins Jan and Jace, along with their monkey Blip, fought for good. I always thought Inviso-Power was one of the cooler powers they had.

So anyway, this is in appreciation of Alex Toth and Space Ghost.

What If?? Again?

I wasn't very happy with the logo on the previous wallpaper, so I reworked it. Much better!

What If??

In anticipation of the new Star Trek movie (due to start filming in November), here is a possible interpretation of the U.S.S. Enterprise, created by Gabriel C. Koerner. He's a talented artist who has worked on Star Trek Voyager and Enterprise and this is his spin on the original 1701. Even though his designs won't be used, I dig it and made this wallpaper with the new logo for the eleventh Star Trek movie.

Legion of Super-Heroes Wallpaper

This is a cool picture of the team (even if some of the costume redesigns are hideous!) I expect a lot to be happening with the Legion next year as it'll be their 50th Anniversary.

What The !@$%

There's a disturbing story in the media right now concerning a youth who fatally shot a pregnant friend because he thought the baby was telepathically telling him it didn't want to be born. Shocking yes, but what's more shocking is that defense lawyers seem to be stressing the fact that years of crystal meth abuse have distorted this individual's thought processes. He was also abused as a youngster.

Whether or not he was on crystal meth for years makes no difference!!! He murdered a pregnant woman and her child, it doesn't matter why! It shouldn't even factor into the equation. Murder is not justifiable.

Let's say this as an example: What if I injured myself in a Quadding accident and survived, but had brain damage. If I then went out and knocked over a liquor store, would I be able to claim it was due to my injury?

I think not.

The Batman

I've been wanting to do a wallpaper with these images for a long time and glad I was able to cross that one off the list!
