When Catwoman #35 kicked off a new story arc for Selina Kyle—written by frequent io9 contributor Genevieve Valentine—many fans bristled at the thought of taking Selina Kyle and placing her as role of a mob boss. But not only does it work, it turns Selina, and eventually Catwoman, into one of DC’s best current…
This Friday, Ant-Man comes out in theaters—and by our reckoning, it’s the 106th live-action superhero movie to see theatrical release. How will it measure up to that proud tradition? To help you place it in superhero history, here’s our ranking of all 105 superhero films to date.
When he wasn’t busy adding a hojillion extra arms to Batman, esteemed Final Fantasy director and character designer Tetsuya Nomura lent his own particular brand of insanity to Play Arts Kai’s variant Catwoman. Now we’ve got an even better look at the figure, and it’s still ridiculous in all the right ways. WHIP TAIL!
Just an FYI! Catwoman comics writer (and frequent io9 contributor extraordinaire) Genevieve Valentine has pointed out on her blog that Selina Kyle is now "canon bisexual" in the DC universe. It's always nice to see a comic company increase its diversity — especially with a character as prominent as Catwoman.
As someone currently writing to you through the medium of the Internet, I can't say I really have much use for a pen on a regular basis. But if I did, I'd use one of these fancy new pens based on DC's heroes and villains, which look amazingly fancy.
DC superheroes and villains get a dose of Norman Rockwell and J.C. Leyendecker-inspired whimsy in artist Juan Carlos Ruiz Burgos' tributes to the Saturday Evening Post. We especially love the ones where superheroes encounter children who read their comic book adventures.
It's been two years since we showed you the trailer for Empires of the Deep, the legendary $130 million epic about mermaids that was geared to be China's answer to Avatar. The movie actually filmed back in 2010. Will we ever see it? Hard to say. Update: We heard from one of the film's directors.
Catwoman's always been good at committing crimes, but she's never been particularly organized about it. Yet in Catwoman #35, Selina finds herself in charge of Gotham City's most powerful crime families in a bold new take written by our friend and frequent io9 contributor Genevieve Valentine. Check out our exclusive…
Legendary Square-Enix designer Tetsuya Nomura baffled us at SDCC with his crazily OTT take on Batman - but at NYCC he's back, and this time he's turned Catwoman into... well, see for yourself.
Artist Jeff Victor has compiled an illustrated evolution of the favorite Batman character Catwoman. Look at all the adorable versions Selina Kyle and how she has transformed over the years.
There's a shake-up coming to the DC universe. io9 can exclusively reveal that Catwoman writer Ann Nocenti will helm a new comic starring Klarion the Witch Boy in October — while author/io9's own Genevieve Valentine takes over Catwoman! We were able to talk to both writers about their series and what's in store.
Artist Simone Bianchi chooses a surprising inspiration for his Batman tableau, changing the hands of creation into hands of reaching, and adding a demonic quality to Batman's foes.
The X-Men movies have been giving us a glimpse of Marvel's mutants in the 1960s and 1970s. That's all well and good — but we'd really love to see some other superheroes reconnect with their roots in the movies. Here are eight superheroes who'd be more interesting if they were closer to their earlier comic-book…
When Captain America tries to pose like Catwoman, it becomes painfully clear how unnatural that position is.
Here's your first official look at 14-year-old actress Carmen Bicondova as Selina Kyle. It's not doing it for me, but that's fine — we've got set pics of Selina looking for more Catwoman-y, plus the first look at David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, and Gordon and Bullock in action!
It's like a natural law — charismatic villains can't stay evil forever. Eventually, they join forces with the hero, and often start to stray onto the path of righteousness once and for all. But which reformed villain would you like to see return to the dark side?
People often think that superheroes look dumb in tights, and that armor looks more realistic. These people are often wrong, and we have the entire decade of the '90s as proof. For 10 years Marvel and DC traded in characters' traditional garb for ridiculous, over-designed armors which offered more shame than…
Lone Ranger got treated to some rough justice at the box office this last weekend, and nobody shed a tear. But it's not the first flop that actually deserved its fate. Even though plenty of decent movies tank for dumb reasons, sometimes justice really is served. Here are 10 movies that bombed because they were awful.
One note before I open up this week's mailbag: As last week's "PA" revealed, I am not infallible. I don't know why you would think so, given that I'm a fictional fake postman. I know a lot of junk, but I think I know more than I do, so I rely on you attractive readers to "augment" my answers in the comments. The fake…
