So How Fast Is Wonder Woman Anyway?


So How Fast Is Wonder Woman Anyway?

It’s not just the Flash and Superman who are speedy in the DC Universe. Indeed, in today’s Batman #29, we get some rather impressive superspeed from otherwise normal folk. So when the Joker gets a little annoyed by his tableware…

…the Riddler is there to snatch it out of the air.

I mean that’s impressive. But it’s not like you could do it with a bullet.

But Wonder Woman can. A sniper shot through a window, deflected by bracelets, in today’s Wonder Woman #28 by Shea Fontana, David Messina and Romulo Fajardo Jr. I’ve usually seen Wonder Woman’s bullet deflecting abilities as a combination of speed and reflex combined with her reading her opponents’ body language, so she knows where people are going to shoot before they even know themselves. Or at least being aware that she is being shot at, and from where.

But a distant sniper through a window without being aware they were there in the first place, and the breaking window being the first moment that Wonder Woman would have been aware of the bullet – that’s fast. The window may slow the bullet but not by enough. There has to be enough time for her to lift her head, see the bullet then move her arm to intercept.

That says Speed Force to me. Certainly sonic booms. Or, you know, she might just be the demi-god Wonder Woman –  and a wizard did it. So, possibly a terrible mother, but at least she’d make sure her kids weren’t shot.

Wonder Woman #28 is published by DC Comics today.

As Mister Miracle #1 Sells Out In Print, It Tops The ComiXology Charts


As Mister Miracle #1 Sells Out In Print, It Tops The ComiXology Charts

As Mister Miracle #1 by Tom King and Mitch Gerards settles in to being a $14-$17 book on eBay after hitting $20 last week, there’s still no news of a second printing from DC Comics, but my gut says we’ll learn more later today.

What that has helped with, along with stellar reviews, is a bit of a boost on eBay. And while Mister Miracle #1 may not have topped the print charts, it seems to have done pretty well in digital. Which has the added advantage of not being able to sell out. Mister Miracle #1 can just keep on selling and selling and selling… Here’s the ComiXology top ten.

Notice there is quite a boost for Kieron Gillen digitally as well, with The Wicked + The Divine outselling Doctor Aphra

MISTER MIRACLE #1
(W) Tom King (A) Mitch Gerads (CA) Nick Derington
From the team behind THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON and the Hugo Award-nominated writer of Vision comes a unique new take on one of Jack Kirby’s most beloved New Gods.
Scott Free is the greatest escape artist that ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former female fury known as Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.
You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick – except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.
Written by Tom King (BATMAN) and illustrated by Mitch Gerads (The Punisher), this is a MISTER MIRACLE unlike any you’ve read before.In Shops: Aug 09, 2017

New York Jets Lose Quincy Enunwa For The Season Due To Injury


New York Jets Lose Quincy Enunwa For The Season Due To Injury

In what sounds like a really strange injury to see happen, New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa was taking part in 7-on-7 drills and dropped a pass from quarterback Christian Hackenberg on Saturday night. The receiver took another step the fell face first to the turf without being touched. Enunwa stayed on the ground for several minutes while trainers checked him out. He then got to his knees before walking off slowly to the locker room. It’s believe that he hit his neck or head when he fell and caused a similar injury to the one that kept him out of sprint workouts.

Quincy Enunwa

Now, ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that a source says the Jets plan on putting Enunwa on injured reserve.

If Enunwa is put on I.R., he could return later in the year, but that seems unlikely. Most reports are saying he is done for the year, which leaves the big problem for the Jets. With 80 career catches, he was the most experience receiver on the roster after the team cut Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker in the offseason. Enunwa was expected to be the team’s #1 with Marquess Wilson and Robby Anderson behind him, neither of whom have more than 60 career catches.

You’d expect the team to make a trade or sign a free agent, but so far the Jets seem to be in the middle of a fire sale year, having jettisoned a good number of their top players and big contracts. It remains to be seen if the team would be willing to put out money on replacement player or if they’ll just stand with what they have and hope Enunwa can come back.

Jay Cutler Signs One-Year Deal With The Miami Dolphins


Jay Cutler Signs One-Year Deal With The Miami Dolphins

Jay Cutler’s retirement and broadcasting career has been put on hold. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the former Chicago Bear quarterback has agreed to a one year deal with the Miami Dolphins. Cutler had signed to be an analyst with FOX Sports but had a clause in his contract that would let him out if a team wanted to sign him as a starter. The Dolphins suddenly needed a starter after their franchise guy, Ryan Tannehill, re-injured his knee on a non-contact play during training camp. The report says that the contract is for $10 million with another $3 million in incentives.

Jay Cutler

Reports on Saturday said that Cutler was reluctant to take the deal, but his former coach and head man in Miami, Adam Gase, did a lot to convince him along with the team upping their offer. They increased their pursuit of Cutler when it became more likely that Tannehill will need surgery to repair the stretched ligament in his left knee.

Cutler had one of his best statistical years with the Bears in 2015 when Gase was the offensive coordinator. The quarterback threw for 3,659 yards with 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, completing 64.4 percent of his passes.

The team’s other option would’ve been to go with 10-year veteran Matt Moore who has 24 starts and went 2-1 last year after Tannehill got hurt. A move of some kind was expected when on Friday Gase was asked about the situation and said: “Right now Matt is our quarterback.” Not the strongest of endorsements.

I Got An Annabelle: Creation Protection Kit – Bring It On, Creepy Little Doll


I Got An Annabelle: Creation Protection Kit – Bring It On, Creepy Little Doll

One of the interesting things about this job is that occasionally I get random packages in the mail. After I let my dog Artemis sniff them — she’s not a bomb-sniffing dog, but I figure it’s worth a try — I open them up to find a variety of interesting things. Yesterday a small package arrived and I opened it up to find a small, wooden box from the Mullins Toy Company and a note about the movie Annabelle: Creation.

Annabelle: Creation

Inside of the box were three items. The first item was a sachet of sage, which the note says: Smudge your space to cleanse your surroundings and protect yourself from malevolent spirits.

Second was a small black bell keychain and the note reads: Ring whenever you enter your home, the chime will ward off any devils within.

And third was a medallion which the note explains: This ‘demon chaser’ St. Benedict medal comes with a prayer – say it quickly when evil spirits are near.

Annabelle: Creation takes audiences through the infamous dolls very beginning — from her first home in a little girl’s room to her first possession of a little girl’s soul. It seems that New Line Cinema, Warner Bros and Mullins Toys are concerned for my soul. I appreciate that greatly, for as they say: Evil can strike anytime, anywhere…Don’t be caught unprepared.

Annabelle: Creation opens August 11th.

James Gunn Reveals That “I’m Mary Poppins Y’all” Wasn’t In The Script


James Gunn Reveals That “I’m Mary Poppins Y’all” Wasn’t In The Script

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has been making the rounds to talk about the home release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the future of the Cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and reveal some details about his various movies. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter and talked about his film making process and how one of the most iconic lines in the movie wasn’t originally in the script.

That iconic line comes in the form of Yondu yelling “I’m Mary Poppins y’all” while using his arrow to float back to the ground. It turns out that wasn’t originally in the script but added later once Gunn visualized the scene.

“When I was visualizing the scene, it didn’t look quite as heroic as I intended it to be. So then I put the Poppins line in Peter Quill’s mouth. And Yondu, of course, not knowing the name Mary or Poppins might think he’s sort of a Lee Marvin type and he owns it,” said Gunn.

Gunn revealed that the cast listens to music through hidden earpieces as they film to help the cast get into it. He described how Chris Pratt and Michael Rooker were listening to music during the scene where Yondu sacrifices himself.

“Chris, Rooker, and I have a strong friendship, and the bond between Rooker and Chris really played out on screen. We used our personal relationship in the scene which made it a lot more sad,” said Gunn.

Gunn says that he knows exactly what kind of performance he wants from his actors when it comes to line delivery.

“I know Rooker’s voice extraordinarily well, it’s the same with Dave [Bautista]. Pratt is a crazy performer, so sometimes he goes off on a tangent and it’s like, ‘Hey Chris, come back to Earth. Other times he goes to someplace really genius.’”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released digitally in HD, 4K Ultra HD, and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 8th and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD August 22nd.

My next relationship will be the last — Princess Shyngle

The curvy actress who is hosting her first event in Nigeria “Miss Tourism Nigeria 2017” come August 5, in Lagos says her next relationship either ends in a marriage or she will have to commit murder.

“My next relationship is either gonna be my last relationship or my first murder charge cause y’all aint gonna keep playing me like I’m average, she says in an Instagram post.

Ghana based Shyngle never stays away for too long from being a subject of controversy. Recently she was reported to have collapsed at a mall where she was found wearing four different types of waist trainers. It was also alleged that the actress got  kidney infection as a result of extreme waist training, but she debunked all the claims and took to her Instagram page to share the real cause of the kidney infection, saying, waist training had absolutely nothing to do with her having a kidney infection .

Yusuke Murata is a Japanese manga artist known for drawing the digital manga remake of One’s One-Punch Man, and for the football manga Eyeshield 21. But his latest illustration is American superhero comic icon Spider-Man, for a movie poster promoting Spider-Man: Homecoming in Japan.

The poster comes from Japan’s official Spider-Man movie twitter account, and ComicBookMovie has the translation, which says that the artist is a longtime Spider-Man fan.

Would he be interested in slumming it for a monthly Marvel or DC book?

Netflix Parodies True Crime Documentaries With American Vandal


Netflix Parodies True Crime Documentaries With American Vandal

American Vandal has the potential to be brilliant. A new Netflix series that parodies the True Crime documentaries that have permeated television lately. This is the story of a young filmmaker who thinks someone in his high school has been framed for vandalizing the teacher’s cars. The senior accused of doing the vandalism, Dylan Maxwell, is expelled… the evidence is that the images drawn were all penises and Dylan is know for drawn those very same objects. The only question left is will #whodrewthedicks catch on as a hashtag?

American VandalThe official synopsis says:

From co-creators Tony Yacenda (Pillow Talking) and Dan Perrault (Honest Trailers), and showrunner Dan Lagana (Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous), American Vandal is a half-hour true-crime satire that explores the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left twenty-seven faculty cars vandalized with phallic images. Over the course of the eight-episode season, an aspiring sophomore documentarian investigates the controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of troubled senior (and known dick-drawer) Dylan Maxwell. Not unlike its now iconic true-crime predecessors, the addictive American Vandal will leave one question on everyone’s minds until the very end: Who drew the dicks?

American Vandal, an 8-part series, debuts September 15th.

The trailer is NSFW as they say the word “dick” a lot.

Don’t show the world what your girl is managing, Vera Sidika advises less endowed men

Don’t show the world what your girl is managing, Vera Sidika advises less endowed men

….

Kenyan socialite, model and hostess, Vera Sidika, who recently parted ways with her Nigerian Dubai-based businessman, Oriyomi Johnson, has stirred an hornet’s nest with her recent Instagram post, which is more or less, a piece of advice to less endowed men.

Model, Vera Sidika

The booty queen, with a sensual picture of herself, says men with small manhood should not cheat on their girlfriends. Using her Kenyan local dialect she describes small manhood as Kibamia

“If you’re a man with a Kibamia , small or microscopic dick & you’re dating, you don’t deserve to cheat on your girlfriend. Why you wanna embarrass her by showing the world what’s she’s managing? All these niggaz will break a good girl’s heart & run into a chic like me? Don’t worry sis I’m his KARMA.

I’m about to do him dirty,” she posts. While the socialite mentioned no one in the post, some are saying it is a swipe at her ex boyfriend, who, she  recently accused of leaking her nude photos on the internet, saying, he had threatened to deal with her for dumping him.

However, she seems to have a taste for Nigerian men as reports abound that she’s dating another Nigerian. She was even spotted in Lagos a couple of days ago, adding fuel to the fire of the suspicion.
