Black Adam

Comics have been around a long time now. Some of the original characters are closing in on eighty years of history, if not longer.

Now back and with a team of misfits on a special mission we’re learning very little about, Peacemaker is out of his depth and flailing around in “Best Friends for Never,” his show’s second episode.

Peacemaker: A Whole New Whirled

Although he seemingly died at the end of the movie, no one dies forever in comics, and that includes the comic book-based movies.

DC will release a sequel to its smash hit Wonder Woman, with more adventures of the Amazonian Princess. But before we get to those, there’s a mixture of heroes and villains in Gotham City with Birds of Prey. Or Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey. Or Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn.
