Will a Superman game ever be as good as Arkham city?

Ever played a good Superman game? Nope, Me neither. Why is that? Batman’s had much success in the video game world as of late and DC have also had other gaming success with DC Universe games and the recent fighting games Injustice. However, when it comes to Superman, things don’t tend to go as well.

While they have tired, many times, Superman is well-known for having a terrible relationship with games. Superman 64 is widely considered to be the worst video game of all time. So what exactly is the problem?

JUSTICE LEAGUE: The Flashpoint Paradox Review

“Accept the things you cannot change, have the courage to change the things you can and have the wisdom to tell the difference.” The film starts of with a young Barry Allen chasing after cars on the motorway trying to hitch a ride after being stranded on a motorway. “So much irony here” I thought to myself. “I’m already in love with this film already”.

Clark Kent is Superman. Bruce Wayne is Batman. Peter Parker is Spider-Man but The Flash is…has been more than one person. This isn’t that uncommon in Comic Books the Flash is the biggest example of this.

In terms of their powers they’re pretty much the same but it’s their character traits, civilian lifestyles, and personalities that sets them apart. Continue reading

The NEW 52 Presents: Damaged DC Heroes

My family doesn’t really approve of me reading comics at the age of 21. They laugh, they say comics are for kids and that I need to grow up. Really? I wouldn’t say these stories are made for kids….
