Top 10 Most Iconic DC Supervillains (Part1)

I’ve been away for a vacation this Christmas and I regret to have kept you waiting. But the hiatus is over and here is our new list for the most iconic DC supervillains ever.

The Top 10 Most Iconic Supervillains of DC (Part1)

10. Catwoman

Selena Kyle was first introduced in Batman #1 in 1940.  Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Catwoman is a traditional adversary for Batman, until in the 1990’s where she had a love-hate relationship with the caped crusader and sometime love interest. There is also another side of our favorite feline friend; despite her villainous nature, she works hard to protect the East End of Gotham City–surely not your typical villain at all.
9. Deathstroke

We have to thank this guy, for this guy:

DC loosely based Deadpool on Death Stroke–they even share the same first name (Slade Wilson for Death ‘stroke and Wade Wilson for Dead ‘pool sounds so much alike, eh?)

Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Death Stroke is an assassin-mercenary who first appeared in The New Teen Titans (vol. 1) #2 in 1980. Originally designed as an arch-enemy for the Teen Titans, the writers developed him as nemesis for other heroes as well. There were parallels between him and Batman, and he has a deep-seated grudge against Green Arrow.

Deathstroke has heightened speed, strength, and senses. He’s also a master strategist and tactician. Capable of standing toe-to-toe against some of the DC Universe’s most gifted fighters and most powerful heroes, Deathstroke is never content with an easy assignment, and takes on tougher and more difficult tasks. He constantly pushes himself further and further with an unwavering focus on getting the job done no matter what it takes, no matter how ruthless, deadly, or manipulative he must be.

8. Harley Quinn

Probably so popular right now because of the Suicide Squad movie and because she was portrayed by the doll herself, Margot Robbie. Harley is the Joker’s most enduring love interest/sidekick to date. Bubbly and Psychotic, she was a masterwork by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, and first appeared in Batman: The Animated Series in September 1992.

Before being a criminal herself, she was Dr. Harleen Quinzel, a promising psychiatrist assigned to Arkham Asylum. After meeting the Joker, the young doctor became obsessed with the crazed criminal’s warped mind. Sensing opportunity, the Joker manipulated her, driving his therapist so mad with love that he controlled her.

DC describes her as: Deranged and Psychotic, Harley Quinn is the poster girl for chaos’ terrifying allure.

7. Professor Zoom

Also known as the Reverse Flash, he first appeared in The Flash (vol. 1) #139 in September 1963. He was created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino.

Born in the 25th Century, he is a time-traveler who attempts to destroy everything the Flash has ever stood for through murder and deceit.

Story: It was year 2466 when Eobard Thwane inherited a huge amount of wealth that he would use to become the Flash. One day, Thawne passed an antique shop and saw the Cosmic Treadmill. Recognizing it, he bought it immediately and tried to duplicate an accident that would turn him into the Flash. However, the planned accident didn’t go as planned, and Thwane’s mind snapped and he became psychotic and evil.

6. Brainiac

Brainiac is a fictional supervillain published by DC Comics commonly as an adversary of Superman. The brainchild of Otto Binder and Al Plastino, the character first appeared in Action Comics #242 (July 1958).

Described as cold, calculating, unfeeling, and absolutely single-minded in his goals, the aptly nicknamed Collector of Worlds journeys across the universe gathering information and knowledge from every civilization he encounters. Enlightenment? That is not his goal as he seeks the superiority that comes with knowledge.

While more benevolent minds might be content to learn and share new knowledge, when Brainiac encounters a new civilization, he captures and bottles entire cities full of people and technology as samples—before destroying the planet and moving on, leaving little more than rubble in his wake. This is by far one of the most dangerous supervillains to grace comic history.

StarWars: Rogue One Review

StarWars: Rogue One Review

Review of StarWars: Rogue One

Be warned! Some spoilers ahead, so if you don’t want to ruin your movie experience please refrain from reading further beyond this warning.

Also be warned that it is a terrific film specially if you’re a long time suffering Star Wars fan.

The story is set in the events before Star Wars: A New Hope. Or Episode IV. This is a Lucas film without George Lucas, which kinda saves the franchise after George kinda ruined it for us in Episodes I-III and up to the animation Clone Wars film.

Meet Jyn Erso…

A prototypical, Star Wars gal. Strong willed, brave and with conviction in her which we already saw with Padme, Leia and Rey. She is the daughter of Galen Erso (Did they intentionally take that name from Galen Marek?)  who was a  scientist and leading galactic authority on crystallography and energy enrichment. The empire is after him so they can finish the construction of the Death Star.

The empire killed her mom and abducts his dad for reasons I just stated. Jyn was then raised by Saw Gerrera, a resistance warrior deemed too radical by his compatriots that he was banished so created his own faction in the rebellion. “The Extremists”.

Felicity Jones as Jyn, and the other stars of Rouge One

That was the start of the movie. Felicity Jones did a great acting job on this one. Worthy of her high pay in the movie. She partnered with Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, the suicide squad of the rebellion who retrieved the plans of the original Death Star.

As the movie moves along we meet K-2SO the movie’ Robot comic relief, but his delivery was much drier than C3PO. We also get to have Donnie Yen, who plays Chirrut Îmwe, a blind guard of the old Jedi Temple in Jedha (My favorite character of the movie with his mantra: I am one with the force, the force is with me), and his partner Baze Malbus. Together they were the main proponents getting the plans.

The film was great especially the scenes that had Vader in it.

Vader was so Bad-ass you’d forget he was so whiny as Anakin before. The scene in the dark hallways where he ignited his red lightsaber and him massacring the rebels, force-pushing and choking some, while the not so fortunate being decimated by his lightsaber…Bad-Ass!

The only let down for me was how fast or how forgiving Jyn Erso was in the movie. She forgave Cassian Andor well too easily after the guy attempted to kill her father. She also cooled down way too easily after the rebels didn’t believe her, had the movie extended another hour it may have captured the correct mood for those scenes.

Another one is the forced love tension between Erso and Andor, which as I said, another hour could have helped.

Maybe killing off Saw early in the movie is another one, I mean the movie could have used more of Forest Whitaker’s acting prowess in the movie (that’s some lazy writing?).

Other than that I think the movie was terrific and I could only hope this could build up more excitement for Episode VIII next year.

Kudos to the Actors, Directors and Writers of this movie, and thank you Disney for this. Old republic movie please?

 

Rating 3.75/5.00

Tobey did a swell job suiting up as our favorite web slinger and some say he’s the best for the job. But I’m giving Tom Holland a shot here. Specially since Marvel will be working closely beside Sony for the upcoming film. So here’s a mild shot at Tobey’s Spiderman out there.

Tobey Surprised!

“What can you do?”

Trying to do some 3D—

Trying to do some 3D—

I tried something new today. I had this program called Adobe fuse and tried tinkering with it. After doing a character, I uploaded it with their insta-animation website called Mixamo and here is one of the results: (I tried everything exporting the animation, but to no avail I just used my phone’s video to record it)

Mixamo 3D Animation trial

Also tried uploading it here directly, but for some reason, WordPress can’t recognize my video format (?).

If I ever master this program, imagine how our Night Edge comic will be.

Big things to come!
