Gotham City Imposters is a weird game. It’s a Team Fortress 2 like game parading around with the Batman license…except there’s no sign of Batman in this game. This game is anything but dark and gritty; in fact, it’s quite the opposite with cheap humor as the driving force. Do these things make it bad per se? Not necessarily.
Silverwolf: Hello everyone! Silverwolf here with recently promoted editor Laevatein to talk about the TV series Young Justice. Both of us agree that it’s a great show, but we’ve got some differing opinions on the cast. So, today, we’re going to debate “Who is the best character in Young Justice?” I’m going with Superboy.
Laevatein: I’m a Nightwing guy myself.
Silverwolf: All right Laevatein, why do you think Nightwing is the best member of the team?
Laevatein: Gee, it’s kind of hard. Well, it seems as if he’s probably the most competent member, not to rip on the other guys though. He seems like a really good leader, but it’s interesting how he struggled with Batman’s influence on him. Not only that, but he really developed quite a bit between seasons.
Silverwolf: That is true. My counterpoint is that Superboy has a great deal of depth. He’s technically the youngest member of the team and, given that he’s a clone and neither a human nor kryptonian, is the one with the most difficulty fitting in on Earth. Couple that with the fact that he’s still trying to get closer to Superman and had issues with Miss Martian modifying his mind in order to perfect their past relationship, and you’ve got a truly multi-faceted individual. Oh, and his powers are awesome too.
“Silverwolf, that doesn’t look like a comic!” you say upon viewing the image for this week’s Silverwolf’s Den. Well, dear readers, you’re absolutely right! But fear not, this book is actually about comics and superheroes! Tom King, who formerly worked for DC, Marvel, and the CIA, penned A Once Crowded Sky, the story of a world much like our own where heroes once dominated the landscape. Thanks to the great folks at Trident Media Group, the team who brought us Nevsky, I had the pleasure of reading an advance copy. How does this new novel stack up?
