    I don't care for that movie. I think it failed on a lot of levels. But it did two things I respect:

    1) I went to that movie to see John Goodman helicopter spin a ninja assassin over his head, and I got that.

    2) It actually managed to but a degree of suspense into the identity of Racer X, while still staying true to the original. Despite that being a plot point where his full name might have been "Speed's Long Lost Brother, Racer X."

    little is known of who Aubrey Sparks was before she was turned into the pyrokinetic known as Scorch during one of The Joker's periodic brushes with godlike powers, only that in the aftermath, she kept her powers, demonic appearance and the unhinged sanity of the experience. However, despite some initial, aimless rampages, Scorch has made strides in regaining and keeping her sanity thanks to the efforts of the Martian Manhunter, and in more recent appearances, has mostly stayed on the straight and narrow barring outside deception or mind control

    one of the most reprehensible creations of John Byrne during his run on Superman, Sleez is one of the New Gods of Apokolips, whose perversions and debauchery eventually disgusted even Darkseid himself, who cast the fetid little troll from out of his domain to Earth. there, Sleez lived in the sewers of Metropolis, and infamously mind-controlled both Superman and the New Goddess Big Barda into making an adult film, for a fleeting moment regaining Darkseid's favor, as the master of Apokolips hand-delivered a copy of the tape to Barda's husband, Mr. Miracle, just to watch his reaction and bask in the moment of doubt in Miracle's eye. Then the moment passed, and Darkseid forsook Sleez once more, leaving him to get multitudes of pain beaten out of him in Barda's righteous fury when she broke free of his control. Sleez has largely been rightfully forgotten since then, due moistly to being killed off in his next appearance, and again during the leadup to the Final Crisis crossover. however, in the Rebirth era, Sleez has returned in the pages of New Super-Man, soundly thrashed once again by the Chinese hero

    the monster heel of Rocky 4 and famously played by the impossibly talented Dolph Lundgren, Ivan Drago infamously killed former heavyweight champion Apollo Creed during a 1985 Las Vegas exhibition bout, before being defeated the Christmas Eve of that year in a special grudge match against Rocky Balboa in Moscow. But while Rocky emerged triumphant, Drago had the last laugh, as the injuries taken by the Italian Stallion ended his career, while five years later, Drago was finally able to take up a professional career after the fall of the USSR, earning a world title and an incredible string of 31 straight wins by knockout. By the time Drago retired, his only loss was still that to Balboa. Now Drago trains and manages his own son, whose course is on collision with that of Balboa's own pupil, Adonis Creed

    Which is kinda too bad. He had a decent look and one of my favorite quotes in comics: "Come little godling, make war with Ignition."

    But, yeah, ultimately nothing to him.

    From the very early issues of Robert Kirkman's Invincible, we have Omni-Man, the world's greatest superhero now that Mr. Majestic and Supreme have been banished to the depths of the retconnian. Yes, No-Lan of Viltrum, known here on earth as travelogue writer Nolan Grayson, tasked by his people to watch over the development of earth for 100 years.

    Unfortunately, when recounting his origins to his son Mark, Nolan's left out a few things, namely that the Viltrumites are a fascistic race of brutal conquerors bent on driving the galaxy beneath their heel, and that his stay on earth is to pave the way for its eventual conquest and enslavement into the empire, and the struggle between the life he's built and the responsibility to the cause will force him to make an impulsive decision, the reprecussions of which will change not only the fates of both earth and Viltrum, but the entire galaxy for centuries to come...
