Powetcast 140: Pop Goes The Weasel

This week Jim from NSFW returns to the cast to cover third base!

Zac travels to Dave & Busters and finds odd updates of Pac Man and Frogger, Captain Genius tries to find reason for the disappearance of DC Nation, and Jim tries to make us justify retro gaming in the face of Borderlands 2.

We’ll also try to figure out why Clark Gregg is back and why the Venture Brothers aren’t!

Oh yeah, and if you want to, here is new the NSFWatercoolers episode with Zac.

Powetcast 129: The Dark Knight Rises Discussion

Having learned some lessons about brevity and staying on topic from our Avengers podcast, the panel rises for the final act of the Batman trilogy.

Zac wrangles and all star cast including Jim from Not Safe for Watercoolers, Adam from The Reality Check, and Sean from Famicom Dojo. We’ll discuss Bane, Alfred, Lucius Fox, John Blake, Selina Kyle, and the overflowing cast of The Dark Knight Rises. There is a lot of plot and a lot of holes, but that doesn’t mean we don’t talk about what we liked and loved about the movie too!

If this is your first time listening to our show, this is an excellent jumping on point. Please let us know what you think in the comments section and subscribe to the show for more!

Yet Another Trailer For ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

I might have said the previous one was the “final trailer” but this is the real final trailer. I guess? Its weirdly uploaded to the youtube page for Finnish mobile phone company Nokia. Not a spoiler: no Nokia phones in this trailer.

It is almost entirely music, lots of action, lots of little snips not seen in previous trailers, and at least two line deliveries that set a dire tone.

Nothing about the promotional materials for the last Batman outing made things look this dire actually. I guess since they know this is the last one they want to make it as SERIOUS AS POSSIBLE. Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman thankfully lighten the mood whenever they’re on screen.

Notably absent from all trailers and marketing: Marion Cotillard.

Cartoon Network presents DC Nation teaser

Cartoon Network will be brining us a full hour of exclusive DC Comics based entertainment. The DC Nation block will debut March 3rd at 10:00 AM ET. The block will feature animated shorts such as the one featured in the teaser video and will be anchored by the Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

As an adult, I’m pretty amused by this. As a kid, I think I would love it and so would my short attention span.

Power Girl Comes Back To DC in ‘World’s Finest’

DC Entertainment today revealed the first cover for the forthcoming “World’s Finest” comic book. This book reintroduces Power Girl to the “New 52” and teams her with Huntress. It is a fish out of water story, as both of these characters are from “Earth 2” and are lost in the new DC Universe.

Which is to say, they are going back to the silver age origins of both characters. Nothing wrong there. They even got a silver age throwback, George Perez to draw the cover. Kevin Maguire is said to be doing interior artwork.

Except, this is a pretty disturbing cover. The goal of the New 52 was to modernize the characters, then why does Power Girl look like a throwback? She’s got a new cape, knee high boots, gauntlets and a terrible haircut. This is a lot worse than just taking away Superman’s red speedo. The ‘boob window’ and the crazy sexuality of Power Girl is what helped make the character. It is why the run with Palmiotti/Grey/Conner was so popular. She is supposed to be ridiculously, comically attractive. Dude’s fawn over her, she kicks their asses. That is the way it works.

This cover, much like the new DC logo that it will bear in the top left corner, is completely uninspired.

Hoping Kevin Maguire can do something with this design. I also hope Paul Levitz brings some levity (if you’ll excuse the pun) to the stories. It would be a pity if one of the most entertaining and beautiful books of the old 52 ended up being a drag.
