AJ’s Side Panel

1 2 3 8

DC may have entered the Rebirth era, but the effects of the 5-year-long New 52 initiative are still being felt — and in the case of this new statue, that sentiment can be taken literally. Sideshow Collectibles has partnership with Prime 1 Studio to create a New 52 style statue of the Man of Steel himself, Superman.


The Polystone statue will have a limited run of only 500 and will go for the super price of $749.99. But Sideshow also offers monthly installment plans that get down into the $80 range, as well. The statue is limited to one per person and is expected to arrive between August and October 2017. Continue reading

The first trailer for the highly anticipated film Logan.1qnxkvy



This trailer is a far cry from the first 2 films in the franchise in that it depicts and more broken down, despondent version of Logan.  I, for one, really can appreciate the darker version of the character.



Loosely based on the Mark Millar story line of “Old Man Logan”, this film promises to pull out all the stops in a very adult version of the character.



Please let us know what you think in the comment section below.

AJ would like to apologize.  During the news segment AJ mistakenly described Dakon’s claws for X-23.  X-23 does not have 3 claws in her hand.  The claws described were Dakon’s.

Following the leak of this news earlier today, Sony has now made it official with a posting on thePlayStation blog which confirmed the reports – Sony’s PlayStation Now service is making the jump to Windows PC.

PS Now is a subscription service that lets you stream hundreds of PS3 games. It is currently available for PS4, but will finally be available on Windows PC.

When it is, it will bring with it a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles that have never been available on the platform before such as the “Uncharted,” “Infamous,” “Killzone,” “God of War” and “Ratchet and Clank” franchises along with acclaimed one-offs like “The Last of Us,” “Heavy Rain,” “Journey,” “The Unfinished Swan,” “Catherine” and “Shadow of the Colossus”. It will sadly not include PS4 exclusive titles though like “Uncharted 4,” “Bloodborne,” “Infamous: Second Son” and “Until Dawn”. Continue reading

In a few months Tony Stark will be hanging up his Iron Man mask in the Marvel comics, with 15-year-old tech wiz Riri Williams taking his place as the star of the “Invincible Iron Man: comic line.

With that change though comes an understandable change of name. Wired has revealed that Riri will be taking on a new moniker – Ironheart. Series writer Brian Michael Bendis says the name was suggested by Marvel’s chief creative officer Joe Quesada:

“Iron Woman seemed old fashioned to some Iron Maiden looked like a legal nightmare. And Ironheart, coined by Joe Quesada, after I told him my planned story for Riri, speaks not only to the soul of the character but to the Iron Man franchise as a whole. Tony first put on the armor to save his heart. Riri puts it on for different reasons altogether but still heart-related. When people see her story, you’ll be amazed at how simple and brilliant Joe’s suggestion was.”

Tony won’t be gone from the series though. The site says that the A.I. in Riri’s suit will be based on Tony’s personality, acting as her support when she’s out and about. The Invincible Iron Man #1, which won’t change its title for now, will be out this Fall.
