Concept:

Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City’s police commissioner, joined forces with Batman several years ago as a reluctant partner before being shot by the Joker, paralyzing her and confining her to a wheelchair.  Now, three years later, a medical miracle has allowed Barbara to walk again…and to take up the mantle of Batgirl once more.  Barbara readjusts to her former life with the skills of an intelligent woman with an eidetic memory and a desire to do justice, not to mention a need to prove to herself that she’s the right girl for the Bat costume.

Static Shock52 Catch Up is a series devoted to looking at issues from DC's New 52 and seeing how they're faring now that they're underway, why they're worth reading (or not), and places we hope they will go in time.

Concept:



Virgil Hawkins is a young superhero named Static who has the ability to manipulate electricity, magnetism, and a combination of the two.  He juggles his superhero activities with that of his personal life and the need to keep his identity secret from the rest of his family, as they make their mark in a recent move to New York City.  Hardware, another self-styled vigilante, acts as a mentor to Static, providing long-distance advice and support.  Static himself is intelligent, resourceful, and something of a typical teenager.

 


And, he puns; he puns a lot, much like Spider-Man does in the Marvel universe.  Frightening to be sure.

marvel-pinballWhen you have multiple balls coming at you from all sides, usually you're either working in the adult film industry (ask for extra pay) or you're the last kid on one side of a dodgeball game. Nay, perchance you're playing the game of kings (most commonly that royal title is of the burger variety or McCheese Mayors), a game of flippers, spinners, locked balls, extra balls, and many a ramp (again, not porn), I speak of Pinball!
