Superman and Homelander both have heat vision. Whether they use their laser eyes for good or evil, it’s quite the spectacle. Hacksmith Industries replicated heat vision in real life by building a wearable rig with high-power lasers and eye-tracking. Of course, they couldn’t resist the urge to use them to burn stuff.
Look! Up on your wall! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s an organizer shelf! Artori Design’s playful superhero shelf doubles as a piece of wall art. In addition to providing space on top for small items like watches, phones, and wallets, Supes’ extended arm and cape provide spots to hang keys or other stuff. Measures 16.5″w x 4.5″h.
Director Zack Snyder is finally releasing the Justice League he wanted to make. This trailer sees Batman rallying his fellow metahumans after a premonition of a terrifying threat to Earth, and teases new footage, including more screen time for Cyborg, baddie Darkseid, and the return of Joker. Premieres on HBO Max 3.18.2021.
Max and Dave Fleischer’s 1940s Superman cartoons are beloved. But the quality of the public domain videos online isn’t very good. Jose Argumedo ran the episode “The Bulleteers” through Waifu2x, a neural network upscaling application that recovered an incredible amount of detail, especially compared to the source video.

“Tell me. Do you… have insurance?” HISHE finally gets around to slaughtering the travesty that is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, from its infuriatingly stupid titular heroes to the totally avoidable ending. The real question here is why the movie even began production.
Screen Junkies takes on Bryan Singer’s Superman ho-boo-quel that somehow manages to be both creepy and boring at the same time. Supes’ flicks make him look like a dumb relic, but there are sublime stories about him. It’s just really hard to tell great tales about a god.
Mr. Sunday Movies summarizes the nixed screenplay from 2002 for a movie called Asylum, where Batman and Superman also fight but of course end up being bros by the end. It’s as dumb as comic book movies go, but at least we got Sean Willets’ funny fistfight drawings.
Kaptain Kristian takes a look at the earliest on-screen days of the Man of Steel, through the brilliant animation work of brothers Max and Dave Fleischer, who not only defined so much of what makes the character who he is, but set the bar for animation for years to come.
After exploring the many permutations of Batman, the folks from Burger Fiction are back to look at some of the numerous ways that the Man of Steel has been portrayed on screen. Despite the cheese factor, nobody has done it better than Christopher Reeve if you ask us.
Given the fact that Superman could destroy a universe with a sneeze, we’re unconvinced that Batman has a chance in hell in a fight. Even with the oddball Portland, Oregon versions of these superheroes doing battle, it’s clear who’s possesses the real power.
Anime may be famous for over the top battles and warriors, but as Variant Comics reminds us, Superman has repeatedly reached levels of absurdity that make Dragon Ball Z look like a documentary. This dude sneezed a solar system to death. Good luck Ben Affleck.
There have been numerous trailers and teasers for Batman v Superman, but most of them focus in on a small part of the film. This special trailer that was produced for Turkish Airlines is more cohesive, and has some bonus shots of the yummy Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
