The Batman Kia Optima is back, we first saw this beauty back in October for NYCC, this time the Bat-Optima is accompanied with another superhero-themed vehicle the Green Lantern Kia Soul for The North American International Auto Show in Detroit to promote an effort to fight hunger in Africa. The vehicles were created as part of a partnership involving DC Entertainment for the “We Can Be Heroes” effort, promoted in part by the use of Justice League characters.
Other superhero themed rides besides the Batman Kia Optima and the Green Lantern Kia Soul is a Aquaman-themed Kia Rio, a Kia Cerato Cyborg, a Cerato Koup Flash, all five cars where shown at the 2012 SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas, all cars featuring a unique piece of artwork by Jim Lee.
Kia plans to produce three more Justice League-themed concepts: one each inspired by Wonder Woman and Superman, and the third being a fully driveable car integrating all seven members of the super hero posse, which will be auctioned to raise more money for the campaign.

The ruling Wednesday, October 17, 2012 regarding heirs of Superman artist Joe Shuster who had been fighting in court to reclaim the copyrights of DC Comics. U.S. District Judge Otis Wright II ruled the rights to Superman had been relinquished more than two decades ago. Meaning that DC Comics and Warner Bros. are the rightful owners and will retain all rights to continue using the character in books, films, television and other mediums. Superman’s co-creators signed away their ability to reclaim copyrights to the Man of Steel over 20 years ago. Shuster and writer Jerry Siegel created Superman in 1938 in Action Comics #1. Back in April, the $412 check that DC Comics wrote to acquire Superman and other creative works by Shuster and Siegel sold for $160,000 in an online auction. Man of Steel directed by Zach Snyder is scheduled to hit theaters in 2013.

With the huge success of Christopher Nolan’s conclusions The Dark Knight trilogy and his upcoming project Man of Steal. PEZ has jumped on bored with the Batman craze and I am absolutely loving the new DC Comic PEZ candy dispensers especially the Catwoman full bust. I must have! The set includes 4 full bust PEZ dispenser: Catwoman, Batman, Green Lantern and Superman. Then there is the classic head PEZ featuring: Batman, Joker, Riddler and Two Face which I highly recommend Joker or Two Face. It will be probably hard to find these in stores so I suggest just ordering them through PEZ’s website for $1.79 USD, the Marvel ones sold out pretty quick. Check out the collection below which one is your favorite?

The intro starts with what sounds like Clarks Kent’s foster father Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) explaining to him that he just not anyone, that one day he will have to make a choice of what type of man he will be good or bad and the choice will change the world. With that you get clips of fishermen on a boat, a young child in a cape, and at the end obviously Superman shooting up into the universe. Another movie I can’t wait to see. DC Comics rocks!
