Han Solo and Guardian Chewbacca and Sasquatch
nbsp;Like many, I was getting a little Star Wars fatigue after the last few movies did not hit the mark. Fortunately, The Mandalorian gets so much right about the property that it has brought me on board again. I hope that Disney pays close attention to the positive reaction that the...

Sgt. Fury and The Haunted Tank
nbsp;The fact that DC Animation is finally releasing a period piece Justice Society movie has me hopeful that we will finally see some more of DC Comicís war stars show up either in that or a future project. Imagine a animated wartime tale featuring Sgt. Rock & Easy Company, The Haunted...

Dr. Doom Vs. The Teen Titans
Rumors are again resurfacing that Doctor Doom will be introduced to the MCU in the next Black Panther movie. I can see there being perhaps some international intrigue between Wakanda and Lateveria, which could be interesting - but what then of the rumors that Atlantis and Prince Namor would...

Galactus Vs. The Justice League of America in: DOA Via JLA
nbsp;The JLA previously faced of against Galactus in STF #117 and later in STF #2750, and I thought they should have a rematch, this time giving the Leaguers the upper hand. The diminutive World Devourer here is from the classic three-part Fantastic Four saga by John Byrne in which he is finally...

Aquaman in the Marvel Universe
nbsp;For this Anniversary Issue, I thought that it would be fun to spotlight one DC hero that never received the 100-Page Giant treatment back when that format was popular in the 70ís. Such an oversight must be remedied, and this blog is just the place to do it This marks the first time...

Vixen Vs. Sabertooth
nbsp;This would be an interesting match up. The animal kingdom infused power of the Tantu Totem versus a brute with rapid healing would equal some pretty cool action. Not a lot of heroes can match Creedís savagery, but depending on what animal Vixen tapped into, she could get close...

Indiana Jones on The Planet of The Apes
nbsp;It was announced yesterday that in addition to a fifth Indiana Jones movie, a new video game featured the character is in development as well. There have been games featuring the character over the years, but I havenít played one since the 80ís. Iíve been revisiting Uncharted...

Superman and Buffy The Vampire Slayer
nbsp;I remember when DC Comics Presents came out, a new team up title featuring Superman as the anchor character. While this was obviously a concept that appealed to me, I wondered if it would work as well as The Brave and The Bold, since Superman was so much more powerful than most potential...

X-Men Vs. Solomon Grundy Daredevil and Dr. Fate
nbsp;It will be interesting to see if Solomon Grundy gets a larger role in the second season of Stargirl. I do remember one of his less lethal rebirths led him to assisting Infinity, Inc. in the comics for a while, maybe they could go that route. I guess it all depends on the CGI budget...

Electro Vs. Air Wave
nbsp;Despite the fact that Sony is sharing Spider-Man with Marvel, they seem determined to build their own Spidey Cinematic Universe. We know that there will be lots of returning villains from the previous Spider-Man movie incarnations appearing in the next film, but now rumors are swirling...

Adam Strange and Beta Ray Bill
nbsp;Thor: Love and Thunder is supposed to start filming this week, and we still have no confirmation on whether Beta Ray Bill will show up. It seems like a jam packed movie already with Jane Foster, Gorr The God Butcher, Valkyrie and the Guardians of the Galaxy already in the mix, would...

Cool Commissioned art by Karl Heitmueller, Jr.
nbsp;Check out this cool cover recreation that Karl Heitmueller, Jr. created as a commission, based on STF #937 from this very blog Amazing work Hereís the original cover, for comparison:Pretty cool, huh? I have enjoyed Karlís contributions to Back Issue magazine, so this was a thrill...

The Human Bomb joins The Invaders
nbsp;The Human Bomb had a simple concept and even simpler costume, but I always got a kick out of him as a kid. I just liked the idea of a guy that could make his body combustible and survive to do it again. Lots of heroes and villains could cause explosive destruction through weapons...

Lara Croft enters The Tomb of Dracula
nbsp;Lara Croft does raid tombs, after all - so why not one of the most famous tombs in fiction? Sheís also faced off against somewhat supernatural creatures before, but could anything prepare her for an encounter with Count Dracula? I still havenít seen the latest Tomb Raider movie,...

Shuri and Hawkgirl
nbsp;Continued from yesterdayís cover, we see that our two heroines are ready to take the lead in this case.It sounds like we will will be seeing Shuri (and possibly also MíBaku) donning a panther costume of her own in the sequel to continue the work that TíChalla began as Black Panther. That...

Black Panther and Hawkman
nbsp;The Super Powers mini-series were generated to sell the toy line of the same name and I canít say that I remember the plot line. I do remember picking them up because it would be the first time that I would see Jack Kirby illustrate some of DCís main heroes. For some, like Batman...

Sandman and Spider-Man in: Night Terrors
nbsp;Warner Bros seems to want to get aggressive with their DC Comics movie release schedule going forward, as they have announced four theatrical films a year along with two straight to HBO Max releases for lesser known properties. I think an HBO Max movie or series would be a perfect place...

Doctor Who and The Silver Surfer
nbsp;My guess us that a phone booth was first used as the exterior for Doctor Whoís Tardis partly because of budgetary reasons, as those original shows were produced inexpensively. Whatever the reason, Itís always been an interesting look for the Doctorís travelling headquarters. Now...

Spider-Man and Blue Beetle in: Triumph of the Time-Killers
nbsp;Itís good to know that animators are currently hard at work producing the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, one of the greatest comic book movies ever made. I look forward to seeing Miguel OíHara, the Spider-Man of 2099, getting into the mix as well as whatever other variants...

Wonder Woman and Captain America in: A Mindwarp From a Monkey
This marks the 24th appearance of the WW Cap team...Well, I saw Wonder Woman 1984, SPOILERS FOLLOWand like most, I was let down after the first movie was done so well. Iíve read reports that Patty Jenkins got rid of her co-writer from the first movie as well as replaced the...

Warlock Vs. Khan
nbsp;I watched Star Trek II again last night. Ricardo Montalbanís iconic performance as James T. Kirkís arch foe from that movie as well as the earlier series episode Space Seed still holds up today. His commitment to the role with equal parts rage, confidence, swagger...

Conan Vs. the Demon
nbsp;There had been some talk about Arnold Schwarzenegger returning for another Conan movie, but I havenít heard anything about that in a while. Perhaps Arnold is having second thoughts after his return to the Terminator franchise met with less than optimal results. Maybe they are still...

Katma Tui and The Avengers
nbsp;Iíve seen character descriptions for the upcoming HBO Max Green lantern Corps series, and Katma Tui does not seem to be among them. Iím OK with that if the reason for her absence is to save her for a live action appearance with John Stewart, when he finally gets his moment to shine in...

Swamp Thing and She-Hulk
nbsp;I am really looking forward to the She-Hulk Disney series. I am glad that it is being described as a legal comedy with super-heroics thrown in for flavor. It will be interesting to see The Abomination back, I hope he gets a little bit of a redesign to more closely resemble his...

Shining Knight and Valkyrie
nbsp;When these two heroes first appeared together in STF #2568, Bob Greenwade (a patron of this blog) suggested that I revisit the pairing, but with the two their winged horse companions. Well, here you go, Bob I canít blame him for the request, one Pegasus makes for a majestic sight,...
