Superman’s powers explained and DiDio on Outsiders: ComicMix Quick Picks for 10/5/09
It’s been a slow few days in comicsylvania, so here’s a roundup of the last few days:
- Stellan Skarsgård (Bootstrap Bill in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) joins the Thor cast. Says it all, really, especially since no one will say what part he’s playing.
- A unified theory of Superman’s powers. Warning: may blow your mind.
- Rob Liefeld turned 42 on Saturday. Hooray!
- From the inaugural Long Beach Comic Con: DC Comics executive editor Dan DiDio is the new writer on troubled team title The Outsiders, with Philip Tan on art.
- Also from LBCC (and the horse’s mouth), Geoff Johns will be writing a Wally West backup feature for the upcoming Flash relaunch as well as the main Barry Allen-centric story.
- An all-new, all-awesome picture of Robert Downey Jr. wearing the Iron Man armor from the upcoming sequel has surfaced. The full pic is at the link.
It can’t possibly have been that slow the last few days. What else did we miss?
