A Super Gift from my Super Wife

   Today, my wife surprised me with this awesome gift. She had purchased the graphic from a second hand store. It used to be a T-Shirt. I love how she constructed the background. It makes the 21×16 inch piece pop. It made my already good day 😍

That Time Wonder Woman Was Blonde (1974)

Blonde in a Track Suit. Cathy Lee Crosby was Wonder Woman in 1974

   I remember watching this in the late 70’s but that was the last time. Currently, I am attempting to get a copy to watch and pseudo-review. There are copies on Amazon, honestly they don’t seem like they are worth the price. I would rather rent or pay the price for a digital download.

Here is the breakdown of the story on Wikipedia

   This version of Wonder Woman (Cathy Lee Crosby) did not wear the comic book costume including the tiara trademark and her “secret identity” of Diana Prince was not all that secret. The film follows Wonder Woman, assistant to government agent Steve Trevor (Kaz Garas) as she pursues a villain named Abner Smith (Ricardo Montalban) who has stolen a set of codebooks containing classified information about U.S. government field agents.

   Meanwhile, on YouTube…

The Shows that, Currently, Drive Quantum Multiverse.

   So here at Quantum Multiverse, as you might have discovered, we are geeks. As geeks we partake in geek media. No surprises there 😉 This is just a list of current shows, TV-YouTube-Netflix-Amazon Prime-ETC, that keep us going. There are movies, audio books/plays, Podcasts (& SMODcasts), Comics, Blog posts, Books, Toys, Games, and what-not that are also a factor. I may get to breaking those down at some point but this is a simple and easily digested post and a good place to begin.

Affleck, you’ll be the *BOMB* in #BatmanvSuperman Yo!

   So when the teaser came out, last year-ish, I wasn’t too impressed. I am tired of the sepia-haze that is now the hallmark of WB Superhero movies. That and the whole “No Humor” thing sort of irked me.

   Something has changed. What’s made me change my tone? What ONE thing has made me pull a 180? One thing. One human. One Actor. Ben Affleck has sold me on the direction and tone of this upcoming film. Sure, Ben has been in some films that just didn’t work but this is not going to be one of those. When you watch the trailer you don’t see this “sad” Batman that we’ve been saddled with for however long now, you feel “mad” Batman. Yep, beyond seeing the anger that Ben portrays, you feel it. That is the mark of good director and a talented actor.

    I am still unsure if I will actually go see this in the theater but I will see it. At this point I can’t wait for it to come out so I can view it at home. Why? Why wait for the BluRay/Digital Download? Well the movie looks so intense that some people in my household, perhaps even me, would need to take some breaks from viewing it.

DC’s Super Hero Girls Brand Site Launches

Featured Image DC SHG

DCSHG_WW  So, yesterday, DC launched dcsuperherogirls.com. It is pretty simple but that is where the beauty lies. I dig the flat design and it is a pretty good start for getting the brand out there. DC Super Hero Girls will see DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. collaborate with Mattel, LEGO and Random House. From what I can tell there won’t be any product, other than maybe from Random House, until 2016.

The site opens up with this blurb:

WELCOME TO SUPER HERO HIGH!

   Want to become a Super Hero? Then head to Super Hero High! We know that life as a teenager can get awkward (especially when you have super powers), but you’re about to learn how to channel YOUR powers and put them to use! Your first assignment: Meet the DC Super Hero Girls.

   I am a huge supporter of positive, powerful, female role-models for both girls and boys. That being said, I have high hopes for DC’s Super Hero Girls to not be another high-school-ish drama laden brand about teen angst, or characters having “attitude” without any positive direction. I will be keeping an eye out on this brand. We should be seeing some digital content soon and perhaps some TV presence this Fall. In the mean time I wonder if they’ll (DC Comics) be launching a companion comic book series in conjunction with the animated content or before… either way, it’s something to look forward to.

First look at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s “Ultimate” Superhero Showdown

   I know that I am tardy to the party, but real life can be a bitch. That being said, this cover to Entertainment Weekly gives us a new look at the DC Trinity in non-washed out color. I mean wow… look at all of the color! Wonder Woman looks, well, wonderful. She could use a bit more bulk but she looks really good. Batman still looks more “emo” than stoic and Superman looks sort of smug. If the movie actually gives us a bit of this color, I would be more interested in watching it. Nothing against Snyder’s vision but it is way to dark and dingy.
