The Wonder Woman Kia Sportage

Kia Presents a Custom Wonder Woman Sportage Fit for an Amazon Princess The Wonder Woman Sportage was unveiled at the New York Auto Show, and is part of a 10-month, eight vehicle partnership between Kia and DC Entertainment that stylizes Kia vehicles after Justice League characters — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg. The eighth, and final vehicle, will carry influences from all seven Justice League Super Heroes.Kia says Wonder Woman represents the balance between power, agility and confidence.



To pay homage to Wonder Woman, the Sportage gets an aero kit, a red and blue exterior color scheme with stars, and gold trim to represent the heroine's "Lasso of Truth."
Wonder Woman's eagle chest-plate emblem is integrated into the grille, flanked by blue headlight beams to represent her blue eyes.
A banner was added to the windshield to resemble Wonder Woman's tiara, and chrome side panels are representative of her invisible jet. Fi…

Comic Book Quick Reviews: Batman Incorporated, East of West, Buddy Cops, and Green Hornet

BATMAN INCORPORATED # 9
SYNOPSIS: The fallout from last month’s shocking turn of events has Batman on the run! Is The Dark Knight a murderer?
REVIEW: Issue #9 deals with the aftermath of Damian Wayne's death and the  direction of Batman Incorporated thereafter. Damian is buried and Batman, Inc. is driven underground. Bruce Wayne is somber and hellbent on revenge. It's all handled very well by Grant Morrison providing some closure to Damian's storyline and setting up the future of Batman and company. All the while I'm reminded how unnecessary it was to lose the Damian character. 
EAST OF WEST #1
SYNOPSIS: The things that divide us are stronger than the things that unite us. A Sci-Fi Western set in a dystopian America where all hope for the future rests in the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse...who just happen to be trying to kill the President of the United States.
One of the most exciting new books of the year, this is EAST OF WEST, a brand new, ongoing, monthly comic from t…

Wonder Woman Porn Parody Releases Tasteful Kimberly Kane Image

While the rest of us wait...and wait...and wait for DC Comics and Warner Bros. Studios to get their act together and finally release a faithful and worthy feature film based on undoubtedly the most famous female superhero ever, Wonder Woman, Axel Braun is already preparing his porn parody with Kimberly Kane looking every bit the role. 
From AintItCoolNews: Hey folks, Harry here - Axel Braun dropped this shot of Kimberly Kane as Wonder Woman in his WONDER WOMAN XXX: AN AXEL BRAUN PARODY - and the subject line of the email was: "David E Kelley can Kiss My Ass ;)"  - Axel tells us this is an exclusive debut - so...   notes?  How would you like to see a live action WONDER WOMAN handled?  Can Hollywood ever get it right?  Why, why not?  Have to say - Kimberly Kane looks damn good here!

Comic Book Quick Reviews: Saga, JLA, Fearless Defenders, Helheim, Cable and X-Force, and Wonder Woman

SAGA #11
SYNOPSIS: It's an intergalactic family reunion, as Hazel's parents and grandparents join forces to escape a dying world.
REVIEW: It's virtually impossible not to gush about the continued excellence of Brian K. Vaughn's sci-fi epic of star-crossed lovers on the run but there's been no drop off in issue #11. Aided by the beautifully rendered artwork of Fiona Staples, Vaughn's characters show a heart and humor that is relatable to audiences and seem genuine. The opening scene is one of the most endearing and funny scenes you'll see in any medium. Marko, Alana and the rest of the family desperately try to keep the ship together while trying to escape certain doom. Not to mention the bounty hunters nearby. Another outstanding issue. 

CABLE AND X-FORCE #5
SYNOPSIS:X-FORCE is officially on the run.Cable must face his daughter Hope, the savior of AVX.The Uncanny Avengers are hot on their trail!
REVIEW: Speaking of characters on the run, Cable and company have b…

The Dark Knight Rises: Bane and The Joker by ~kinjamin

What if the Joker had been in The Dark Knight Rises?

This great piece of fan art comes from DeviantArt professional illustrator kinjamin. You've probably seen those Batman family/Community mash-up images floating around the internet so it only makes sense that the same artist would have more love for all things Batman including his take on where was Joker during the whole Bane take-over of Gotham.  "This was an idea that's been sitting in my head since the movie came out. I 100% believe this is exactly where the Joker has been. I find it ridiculous that people feel like the Joker would of been one of the inmates from Black Gate that would of been released.

A.) He would of been in Arkham. NOT Black Gate.. Arkham=criminally insane, Black Gate=criminals not necessarily insane
B.) Why the hell would Bane release the one man in Gotham that -save for Batman himself- would of been the biggest monkey wrench in the plans. I don't think anyone would be dumb enough to release the mo…

'Star Trek Into Darkness' International Trailer and New Poster

Paramount released this exciting new trailer for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' that reveals just what kind of threat Benedict Cumberbatch will be. The menacing Cumberbatch blows stuff up and Capt. Kirk and crew are in a mad scramble to put a stop to the destruction. It certainly looks like this action packed trailer bodes well for sci-fi fans and it's clear that director J.J. Abrams has raised the stakes for the beloved franchise. 



In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness.

Comic Book Quick Reviews: Batman, Sledge Hammer 44, Snapshot

BATMAN #18
SYNOPSIS: Welcome guest-artist Andy Kubert! In the wake of unspeakable tragedy, Batman is in danger of losing his humanity! And in the backup story, fan-favorite character Harper Row returns—but will she be able to pull Batman back from the brink?
REVIEW: The answer to that question is unfortunately yes. Something that occurs easier than you'd suspect especially since Harper Row is positioning herself to be some kind "assistant" (didn't want to say side-kick just yet) to the grieving and destructive Dark Knight. He's sleep-deprived and wreaking havoc on crime even during the day in Gotham after the loss of Damian. Yet he is somehow calmed by another young protege hoping to lend a hand. After a great but restrained 'Death of the Family' arc this issue just didn't ring true to Batman's motivations and reconciled a lot all too quickly. Harper is an interesting character with potential albeit too familiar in the Robin-mold but despite the inc…

Comic Book Quick Reviews: Wonder Woman, Hawkeye, Deathmatch, Green Arrow, Five Weapons, and Lost Vegas

WONDER WOMAN #17
SYNOPSIS: Wonder Woman, War and Orion must join forces to save Zola’s baby from Hermes! Orion’s reasons for helping Wonder Woman lead to a disastrous betrayal! Plus: The truth about the dreaded First Born is revealed! Woe to the world...
REVIEW: Unlike the disappointing meandering storyline of Batwoman, Wonder Woman's meandering storyline is saved by a distinctive cast of characters that breath life to the Amazon Princess's new origin story in the new 52. The search for Zola's baby continues but not without the interactions of WW's dysfunctional but powerful family of gods. This is a case of the journey being worth the trip wherever it may lead them. 

HAWKEYE #7
SYNOPSIS: Valentine’s Day with THE heartthrob of the Marvel Universe? This will be… confusing. Xoxo, Hawkeye
REVIEW: One of the most consistently enjoyable reads in comics today continues to impress with down-to-earth adventures. In this issue, Clint Barton finds himself in trouble thanks to a redhe…
