So Gotham happened last night. I think it has promise, but still needs work. I give it 3/5 stars.

I have no problems with the changes, this is its own continuity, but here’s hoping they fix the cheesy dialogue & shoddy characterization (I think Bruce is the only character they nailed). What did you guys think?

Ancient d20 die emerges from the ashes of time

Many centuries before Dungeons & Dragons was even a glimmer in the eye of Gary Gygax, ancient Egyptians were rolling a d20 die.

The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art owns what may be the world’s oldest d20 die, dating somewhere around 304 to 30 B.C.

One of the arguments behind Starfire’s barely-there outfit is that her powers are fed by solar energy. Since Superman also gets his powers from our yellow sun, cartoonist J.Bone designed a new, less UV-blocking costume for the Man of Steel.

BORDERLANDS: THE PRE-SEQUEL - INTERACTIVE SKILL TREES

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel may not be out yet, but here’s your head start. We’re helping you plan out ahead of time some choice skills for the playable characters, as we’ve done with previous Borderlands games. Here’s an overview of each character’s skill trees before you dive in on your own.

Athena the Gladiator

Athena’s action skill is her Kinetic Aspis (Shield) which can absorb incoming damage. The player can decide to throw the Aspis at an enemy or have it thrown automatically when the timer runs out.

Be the healer of the group, increase melee and gun damage, or build maelstrom stacks for maximum damage with Athena’s skill trees.

  • PhalanxCooperative buffs fill the Phalanx tree with skills that regenerate health and shields for your entire party. The capstone “Wrath of the Goddess” enables the Aspis to ricochet to up to four enemies which is always awesome to witness.
  • XiphosIf maximum melee and gun damage is your thing, Xiphos is the tree for you. Increased damage, bleeding damage, exploding bleeding enemies, need we say more? The capstone, Blood Rush, changes your melee attack to a dash with more damage.
  • Ceraunic StormFor the advanced player, Ceraunic Storm offers the player Maelstrom stacks which increases all elemental damage dealt. This should give the player plenty of options on the battlefield to finish off enemies. The capstone “Flash Freeze” encourages the use of cryo weapons to keep your Maelstrom stacks going.

Warner Bros. Wants to Recruit Training Day Writer David Ayer for Their Suicide Squad Movie

Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li—yay?) is working on the script, but remember…Ayres is also a screenwriter and has a much more impressive resume. Hopefully he’ll be taking a swipe at it if he signs on.

Which roster would you like to see on the big screen?!

BORDERLANDS: THE PRE-SEQUEL - INTERACTIVE SKILL TREES

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel may not be out yet, but here’s your head start. We’re helping you plan out ahead of time some choice skills for the playable characters, as we’ve done with previous Borderlands games. Here’s an overview of each character’s skill trees before you dive in on your own.

Wilhelm the Enforcer 

Wilhelm can summon two drones with his action skill named Wolf and Saint. Wolf brings the offensive firepower while Saint can charge Wilhelm’s health and shields. Both can be recalled early to reduce the cool down timer.

Power up Wolf, get more defensive help from Saint, or go full cyborg by choosing the right tree for Wilhelm.

  • Hunter-KillerBuffs to Wolf is what the Hunter-Killer tree is all about. Increased damage, air speed, and added targeting controls for Wolf fill the tree. The capstone “Omega Strike” adds missiles to Wolf when the action skill is enabled.
  • Cyber CommandoWatch Wilhelm’s transformation to cyborg badass by spending points in the Cyber Commando tree. “Power Fist” replaces his arm with a cyborg fist, which extends your melee range. “Shock Absorbers” enhances his legs robotically so you can shoot while sprinting. The capstone “Vengeance Cannon” makes use of his shoulder mounted cannon that fires lasers.
  • Dreadnought—Shield boosts and decreased cool down durations for Wolf and Saint are the highlight of the Dreadnought tree. Saint can deploy a large healing zone for your whole party to use with “Zero Hour”. The capstone “Overcharge” buffs movement speed, fire rates, reloads speed, and ammo regeneration for your entire party.

Just under an hour left to bid on original artwork in support of the Bill Mantlo Support Fund

As most of us are aware, Bill Mantlo (co-creator of Rocket Raccoon) has been in a living-care facility since a 1992 hit-and-run accident left him severely brain damaged. The sale of these pieces (and even more at the link) will go to help pay for his continued healthcare costs.
