Hollywood has a few failure modes when it tries to adapt classic fairytales and fantasy stories for the umpteenth time. And one of the main ones is, “Let’s tell the origin story that’s never been told before.” Pan is the latest fantasy prequel to show why this is a bad idea.
DC has refreshed its stable of comics once again, putting its characters in new situations— and most of them have gotten a new look to celebrate. But as usual with superhero makeovers, some are less successful than others. So we’re going to put on our fashion-hats and rate what’s hot and what’s not in the DC Universe!
Well, again, that is. Long ago DC Direct, before they were relaunched as the current DC Collectibles, made a series of 7” scale Justice League action figures based on the artwork of the iconic comic book artist Alex Ross. Missed out the first time? Good news! They’re back, with shiny new repaints in tow.
Sideshow Collectible's latest 1:6 gives us a whole new Hal Jordan to gawp at... but maybe perhaps that's because he's got to be the first Green Lantern figure in a while to show up in sparkly spandex.

As someone currently writing to you through the medium of the Internet, I can't say I really have much use for a pen on a regular basis. But if I did, I'd use one of these fancy new pens based on DC's heroes and villains, which look amazingly fancy.
There were better movies playing Sunday afternoon. Super 8, X-Men: First Class. Midnight in Paris. But I bustled past all of those. I headed to theater 7, foul den of Green Lantern 3D. Armed with a superpower of my own.
Look, punk us once, shame on you. Punk us twice, this time with a Green Lantern teaser trailer and, well, just watch this right now.
The full-length Green Lantern trailer is out and it's damn good. There are plenty of funky CG effects, aliens, explosions, and gasp-inducing antics to satisfy your craving for superheroes until the movie's release.
If you asked us what DC superhero we'd love to be and said we couldn't be Batman, Superman, the Martian Manhunter, Robin, Nightwing, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Power Girl, or the Flash, we'd probably choose Green Lantern. Instructables has a step by step guide on how to make your own glowing ring.
