Get ready, He-Man fans: DC Comics is getting ready to launch a brand new take on the Masters of the Universe this July, in a six issue comic book series written by James Robinson, with pencils by Phillip Tan and inks from Ruy Jose. And that's not the end of the surprises... As the series starts, the evil Skeletor has already won!
That's right: the skull faced arch-enemy of He-Man has figured out a way to rewrite the reality of Eternia, casting himself as the ruler of Castle Grayskull, and our heroes - including He-Man - as regular peasants with no memory of their previous life. And while simple woodsman Adam may dream of wielding a massive sword, and fighting in battles, he thinks they're just dreams. That is, until a mysterious sorceress approaches him, and sends him on an epic journey to save all of Eternia.EXCLUSIVE!

Too bad, Frankenstein:AOS, Deathstroke, Resurrection Man all on the block...
Will be sad to see Frankenstein go, if that one ends up getting the chop. Even though Lemire is leaving the book, and sales will probably drop even further, the character/scenario they set up has so much potential for great stories. Shame.
I haven't read Deathstroke or Resurrection Man yet, but I was planning to pick up the trades.
I HAVE to think it's going to be some bastardized version of Mandarin. Look, there is no way a major franchise is going to go all 'Ming the Merciless' w/that character because it is (public opinion,not necessarily mine) in really bad taste. I could see some nanotech version of the rings and an extremely toned down version of the villain...hell, the name is even politically incorrect from what I have read. So, as perfect as Kingsley is for that part it there is no way that Marvel/Paramount(?) are going to risk killing the golden goose. They need a solid critical/public hit with IM3. It is the engine that drives the whole Avengers/Thor/Cap'n money printing machine and IM2 was not as well liked as the first one was.
CBR TV @ WC12: Khary Payton on POWERS
Hmmm, not looking good if they are allowing players to 'move on to other projects'. I salute Fx for basically saying if it can't be done right no reason to do it.Finally, Payton discusses his role on “Powers,” the FX pilot based on Brian Bendis and Michael Oeming’s comic series, expressing his hope that the project makes it to the small screen, describing it as the “coolest thing that’s going to be on television,” though he may not be a part of the final project if it’s picked up as he’s moved on to other projects.
