A story from the Harley Quinn 30th Anniversary Special reveals that Harley and Poison Ivy’s relationship may have been the result of Catwoman’s role in Cupid.


Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy’s romance is a sweet bond that has become one of the most emotionally powerful bonds in both characters’ lives and in the DC Universe as a whole. Even when they are apart, they remain firmly in each other’s minds. But it turns out that another character could have played a crucial role in their low-key set-up.


“Submissive” (by Stjepan Šejić and Pat Brosseau) from the Harley Quinn 30th Anniversary Special highlights the important role Catwoman played in the creation of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. It also adds another layer to Selina Kyle’s friendship with the two women.

The “Submissive” story focuses on the early days of the trio’s relationship. In this storyline, Poison Ivy accused Harley of being unable to escape Joker’s orbit. Hanging out on Harley’s windowsill, Catwoman quickly agrees, calling her her “submissive” and noting all the ways she allows the Joker to control her life. Both under Harley’s skin, Catwoman watches her take a chaotic crash course through Gotham City, attacking Penguin and causing mayhem in the city to prove her individuality and assertive nature.

In the end, Poison Ivy saves Harley and takes on a slightly dominant tone while getting her out of trouble. This catches Harley’s attention but annoys her at the same time as it proves that she is ready to be the more submissive partner in a relationship. Notably, the moment is revealed to have happened because of Catwoman – who had also spoken with Poison Ivy separately. Hear her talk about Harley and her fears of returning to the Joker. Selina instead argues that if she could replace the Clown Prince of Crime as the dominant presence in Harley’s life, she could keep her from returning to Joker.

It seems that it was Catwoman who pushed Poison Ivy into some role in Harley’s life – and it worked out pretty well. In a way, this suggests that Selina essentially played matchmaker with her friends, securing the romance that remains one of the few humanizing things about Poison Ivy – especially after her recent return to villainy. Catwoman’s keen eye saw the chemistry between her fellow Gotham City Sirens and may have been a crucial figure in shaping their relationship.

This theory gives more depth to Catwoman’s friendship and loyalty to both women. Recently, she nearly made a move on Harley when the two were spending the night together at a hotel. But Selina specifically mentioned how their hearts belong to other people, and they shouldn’t spoil that. Her words make the scene very sentimental and heartfelt, confirming that she cares about her friends’ happiness.

Starman’s bloodlust leads him to hunt down and fight Paula and Crusher in the middle of a supermarket. It’s an explosive and impressive battle, but it also brings to light a lot of what’s going on behind the scenes inside Starman’s head and with the Crock family behind the doors. spoiler follow for star girl Season 3, Episode 3, “Frenemies: Chapter Three: The Blackmail”.

“The blackmail”

Courtney (Brec Bassinger) and the JSA receive an anonymous tip that may help them investigate the murder. Meanwhile, after being asked to find a balance, Sylvester (Joel McHale) delves into potential jobs at Blue Valley, while trying to figure out who he is without his Starman identity.

An important part of making a thriller successful is making sure there are plenty of suspects with valid motives, and that we’re constantly wondering who the culprit is as the possible answers are slowly narrowed down. At present, star girl is nailing it. Sticking the landing will be key to getting all that work done, but for now, it feels like an old-school classic comic book murder mystery.

So many suspects

We have all of these possible suspects – Sylvester, the Shadow, Paula and Crusher, Cindy, Cameron Mahkent – and it’s still hard to tell exactly who is allied where exactly. Cindy, for example, seems to be playing both sides when she tells Sylvester the player was blackmailing Paula and Crusher, but then seems totally sincere when she tells Courtney she was doing it to get Sylvester’s approval and so of the JSA. It fits with his spoken motives thus far, and the show doesn’t give in to the temptation to cut him off with a smirk or twirl his metaphorical mustache.

As this happens, we see Cameron Mahkent struggling to contain his anger, going after a teacher first, then Rick’s car, as his grandparents – the scariest characters on the show, honestly – running around doing who knows what in the background.

Sylvester has seemed increasingly unhinged, culminating in a late night supermarket battle between him and the Crock family. It’s an exciting, acrobatic battle with lots of explosions and it’s fun to watch, and it also serves to highlight a lot of different things. Pat is no longer content to let Sylvester run the show and has grown enough to stand up to him and push back. The Crock family seems to be thriving more and more. They’re weird and dangerous…but honest. The episode’s final moments, however, seem to remove him from the suspect list, yet still fail to solve the entirely separate mystery of why he’s even alive in the first place.

Parents

But the show doesn’t forget to develop characters while the whole murder mystery unfolds. Both Beth and Rick have noticed how other people’s families are reacting to their new lives. Rick’s uncle is totally absent, while Beth’s parents constantly call him with new ideas, theories, and costume suggestions. Paula continues to try to find a life after supervilliania, actively working to rejoin the community and earn Barbara’s friendship. Can anyone be scary and sweet? Because that’s the vibe I’m getting from Paula right now.

One story I particularly enjoy is how fatherhood plays into Courtney’s life and worldview. Pat Dugan is a steady and genuine source of support for her, but she sees all of these potential fathers around her and how they interact with their children. Starman’s violent tendencies were frustrating and disappointing for her, while the player’s back and forth of potential villainy was something of a whiplash for her. Across the street, Paula and Crusher are constantly under suspicion, but prove time and time again that providing their daughter with a good life is the most important thing to them.

It helps reinforce those ideas of heritage and generations that the show has been toying with from the start. All around the main characters are these symbols of the past and possibilities for the future, and they must decipher which symbols are worth remembering and which possibilities to pursue.

The sins of our fathers and mothers

It kinda reminds me of the first season of Riverdale, where the show focused primarily on how parents’ long list of bad decisions affect their children. That was before an organ harvester flew into space. Riverdale got weird. In the real world, we are at this pivotal point between the decisions of the Boomer generation and its aftermath, which particularly weighs on millennials and young people, and many young people have to look back at the way their parents behaved and think about what this means for the future.

star girl straddles a line between nerdy fun and modern sensibilities, but the show’s themes are a good reminder that star girl is being made right now, for today’s young viewers, as it digs deeper into the issues we are facing right now. The show sneaks around with its bright facade and fun characters, but the writers do a great job of giving it real weight that keeps it stuck in my mind every week.

Matthew Rosenberg has seen his DC output increase over the past few years and will be adding even more titles to his resume this fall. In addition to writing a new WildC.ATs comic book series, Rosenberg will write the final volume of The Joker. James Tynion IV and Guillem March were the last collaborators on The Jokerwith Jim Gordon and other dangerous individuals in pursuit of the Clown Prince of Crime. The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing by Matthew Rosenberg and Carmine Di Giandomenico will take over while establishing a new status quo for the series, as another mysterious figure hunts down Batman’s greatest enemy.

ComicBook.com had the opportunity to chat with Matthew Rosenberg about his plans for The Joker. The writer talked about continuing Joker’s terrorist escapades, taking the villain on a cross-country road trip through the DC Universe, surprise guest appearances, working with Carmine Di Giandomenico, And much more. You can also take a look at the art preview to The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing. The first issue is slated for release on October 4.

Launch of a new volume of The Joker

ComicBook.com: How do you approach a series like The Jokerwhere you’re going to relaunch it with a new number one, while taking over from James Tynion?

Matthew Rosenberg: It’s always difficult to approach a book like this, because The Joker obviously has an incredible history and over 80 years of stories to pull from. So you want to do something fresh and different, but you also want to make sure you’re sticking to everything that’s come before. For this book, it is particularly tricky because James and Guillem [March] and this team made such an amazing book, and it’s so recent, so it took me a long time to figure out exactly how we wanted to handle the recovery from there.

I think the idea is that we sort of treat it as a continuation of what they were doing, but also as a whole new beginning. So if you haven’t read it before you should but if you haven’t read their book we have a new protagonist in the series we have a new direction but story wise The Joker picks up a few weeks or maybe a month after the end of this series. And so we want to make sure that the fans of what they’ve done, which I’m a huge fan of what they’ve done, we want to make sure that those fans know what they’re getting and understand it and it seems natural, but also at the end of what we’re doing, it should feel like a whole different book and a whole different experience if we’ve done our job right. So it’s a tricky balancing act, but I feel like we got it right in the early issues. I feel like no one is going to be lost, and everyone is going to realize that we’re going somewhere different with this.

The Joker’s New Status Quo

For readers who may not be up to date, what is the status quo of The Joker when readers pick up the first issue?

The Joker was on the run after being hunted by many very dangerous people and Jim Gordon, who worked for some of these people and also worked for himself. And at the end of their series, he disappeared. He had left Gotham and was gone. When we pick up, it’s the Joker’s return to Gotham. He’s back, he’s had some time away from the city to reflect and see what he wants to do, and he has big plans.

He wants to regain the status he had of being the most dangerous villain in Gotham, or possibly the world. And so he sets the plan in motion and comes up against some problems and some resistance, especially in Gotham, where when you leave, they don’t hold your place. People are going to take over, and he meets some of his former colleagues in the form of Two-Face and Black Mask, and people like that, and they’re not exactly welcoming when he comes back. So that’s where we come in, is that the Joker is ready to go back to being the classic Joker again, and find that there might not quite be a place for him.

The Journey Through Joker Country

What went behind the decision to put Joker on a cross-country road trip across the United States?

It’s a few things. It’s hard to tell a Joker story in Gotham that doesn’t become primarily a Batman story, and we didn’t want to do that. It’s the Joker book and it’s Joker trying to reclaim his glory, and it’s tough when you have Batmans and Robins and Nightwings and all those people who will get in his way. As he arrives in Gotham and tries to regain his glory, he soon realizes that it won’t work and he needs to expand and change what he does and change locations. So it’s Joker in motion, but there’s also a lot of Gotham stuff in there. I have to be a little vague about it here, but it will start to make sense. The city is a big part of Joker lore, and so we want to make sure there are ties to it, but we also want to see it expand to new places it’s never been.

Previous Next

DC Universe guest appearances

Along with seeing some of the Batman characters on the show, the road trip aspect of this one provides a unique opportunity to take Joker to different locations in the DC Universe. Are there any chances of seeing non-Batman characters appear in the series?

Of course, yeah. That’s part of the fun of what we’re trying to do is make sure the Joker has a chance to prove who he is by putting him in places he’s never been. That’s really the idea. And so there are a few beginnings, a few non-regular Batman characters that are going to make appearances, and as it goes, it’s going to be a book that takes you places you’ve never been in the DC Universe. But also, there are sure to be some familiar faces he encounters.

Previous Next

Backup Stories

I saw in the original announcement that there would be backup stories, with the first Joker pairing with Mirror Master. Will these continue as the series goes on?

Yeah. First of all, we have Francesco Francavilla drawing them, so they’re beautiful and amazing, and yes, the save stories are unusual. It’s not like a traditional backup story where it’s exactly a separate idea. What they are over the course of the story will kind of change and evolve, but they’re very strange back-up stories, that’s what I can say. They’re funny and weird, and they feel very different from what we do. They’re a lot more comical and a lot wackier, but there’s a reason for that, and it’ll become clear as the story goes that they’re not exactly different Joker stories. That’s all I can really say. But they’re important to who the Joker is, who our Joker is in this book. They are very important to unlock this in a mysterious way.

Previous Next

mystery character hunting joker

And of course, without giving away any spoilers, there seems to be a bigger mystery with Joker by the time readers come to the end of the first issue. What can fans expect from this development that pops up?

Yes, there’s a big mystery that drives the whole book, and it has a lot to do with our character chasing the Joker and what he wants. And basically the idea is that we’re trying to challenge what you know about the Joker and what you think you know about him. I always feel like Joker works best when you have more questions about him than answers, and so we try to really raise as many questions and keep you unsure of what you know as we go. And it will continue. It’s sort of a theme of the book, who the Joker really is, that’s what we’re trying to get across to people, and we’re going to make it very difficult for them.

Previous Next

Collaboration with Carmine Di Giandomenico

How was the collaboration process with Carmine Di Giandomenico? Is this your first time working with him?

No, I had the chance to work with Carmine on my first thing in DC a short time ago. We did two numbers together Future state: rogue, which sort of started my WildCATS journey. Carmine is amazing, he’s always an artist who I think really pushes me to do my best and lay out my best pages, and then he constantly comes in and upgrades everything and makes it better. And then you want to work harder, and it feels like an endless arms race to see who can make the book better. I always find things where I’m like, “This is a brilliant panel,” and it’ll do really well, and then it comes back and it’s even better.

I love working with Carmine. He’s such a smart storyteller, and he’s so good at building the world down to the smallest detail. So I really feel like people are going to fall in love with his Joker and the way his Joker interacts with everything. You get a real sense of its place in Gotham and its place in the larger world. And so everything I do is kind of in the service of trying to give him enough space to really do big and crazy and scary and weird and fun things, and he does it as well as anybody.

Previous Next

What the future holds

What can readers expect The Joker keep on going?

I think it’s one of the craziest things I’ve ever written. It’s one of the most fun and exciting things I’ve ever worked on. I hope people give it a chance and see that we’re trying to make sure that we’re honoring the Joker’s legacy and really doing things that make you question everything about the Joker at the same time, and that’s is a truly dangerous balance. It’s a really tough tightrope to walk, and we want the readers with us to feel that kind of tension, that anything can go wrong and everything you know can go wrong.

So hopefully when the first issue comes out people will really dive in and give us their trust because we have a really crazy plan for all of this that I don’t think anyone will see coming. And other than that, I would say people should, when the book comes out, there will be spoilers on things, or maybe they’re not spoilers, but just be careful. You should read it before going online, that would be my advice.

The following contains spoilers for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Part 2 Episode 16 “The Secret of Guard Westwood”, now streaming on Netflix.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean Part 2 is a supernatural crime and action anime available to stream on Netflix. For the first time in Part 2, an episode focused on the main protagonist, Jolyne Cujoh, for the majority of the runtime. It’s been interesting to explore the secondary characters, their motivations, and their growth, but it was time to give the same opportunity to Jolyne, with her impressive growth in combat abilities and ridiculous mental toughness. Continuing the explosive introduction of the Ultra House Security Unit Fight Club, viewers can expect the bloodiest brawl yet.


Episode 16, “The Secret of the Westwood Guard”, is on the surface an ongoing fight between Jolyne and the surviving prison officer from the previous episode. With the effects of the Survivor Stand in play, the characters’ mental restraint cracks and their obsession with completely crushing their enemy has reached new heights – at least at the start of the fight. The real significance of the episode is to show how far Jolyne has come since obtaining Stone Ocean and how far she will go to survive and win. There are no heroic support moments to save her, no saves; there is only Jolyne, her talent and her resilience.

RELATED: Engage Kiss: Kisara Must Face Asmodeus Alone in Episode 11 – Or else

Stone Ocean has always appeared as a versatile stand, but in the Jojo universe of Stands that bend reality, change the world, and grant immortality, it came across as a pretty standard string-manipulating ability. That, in fact, has not changed. There are no new abilities introduced or secret powers to be removed at the last moment to defeat his enemy. Instead, Jolyne uses every trick in the book to compete against a more physically powerful prison officer, Viviano Westwood, and her Stand, Starlight Waves. The power of Starlight Waves summons meteorites from space, drawn to Westwood as if he were a magnet. Positioning himself in battle is vital to ensure he makes contact with his enemy, but luckily for him, the meteors decay before they reach him personally. Naturally, Jolyne uses this to her advantage.

Jolyne is not only a skilled fighter, but she also uses Stand Ocean in the best way to complement her martial arts. Many times she attacks, counters, or even takes a hit in certain spots to allow her string to attach to Westwood and bind him. However, due to the frustrating and dangerous power of Starlight Waves, meteorites are a constant problem when it begins to take over. It’s when Jolyne is about to be killed that she uses her string to cause real damage. When trapped in a headache, Jolyne tears out Westwood’s nails and uses the string to burst his eardrum and enter his skull. These kinds of actions show her unwavering determination to survive, skinning her enemy if it means she can survive. Such brutal actions, alongside the relentless beating of the two, make the fight incredibly intense.

RELATED: Ayumu Episode 10 Brings The Family Together With Shogi

There was a problem with the continuity of the Stand Survivor. The previous episode made a big deal of how he manipulated minds and broke people into fights to the death, and episode 15 even ended by hinting that everyone in the Security House in was affected. At the start of episode a6, Jolyne is aware that something is altering her psyche, and the fight begins with that in mind. However, as the episode continues, Jolyne is able to think logically and does not appear to be in a crazed, bloodthirsty state; Neither did Westwood. Perhaps it will be explained in later episodes that the Survivor ability has been “disabled” somehow, although based on DIO’s explanation in the previous episode, this is not a power controlled by its user like Stone Ocean or Pale Snake.

Although Jolyne survives her fight with Westwood, she is out of strength, energy, and options. She doesn’t know yet that there are three other Stand users in the Security Unit waiting for their chance to assassinate her. Luckily for Jolyne, FF and newly acquired ally Narciso Anatasia are on their way to her location. Undoubtedly, a series of other confrontations are coming as the duo will desperately try to protect Jolyne.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Part 2 can be streamed via Netflix, with all 12 episodes available to watch.

Swamp Thing’s first appearance in DC Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths is a significant omen. His presence signals, on the one hand, the fusion of the forces of superhumans and supernatural heroes. The event’s latest push into the mystical realm also hints at how the Dark Crisis superheroes feel – there’s something even darker at play than Deathstroke’s belligerence or Pariah’s fanaticism for life. world exchange. Swamp Thing thinks the Great Dark behaves as if it’s been corrupted by something. This epiphany calls forth revelations found in the 1985 Swamp Thing comics that tie into Black crisis’ prequel. The Darkness, as depicted in these old issues, also hints that Barry Allen’s alternate desert in dark crisis attachment, flash, may hold the key to calming the Darkness again.


As the real Barry of Earth-0 roams the prison worlds of Pariah, studying their nature, dark crisisnow halfway introduces the supernatural side of the crisis. Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #4 (by Joshua Williamson, Daniel Sampere, Alejandro Sánchez and Tom Napolitano) pays homage to Zatanna and John Constantine, two different Swamp Things. These appearances may be nothing more than nostalgic cameos, however, they provide meaningful insight, reminding fans that the Great Darkness is a being with a special nature. As the Dark Crisis superhero cast connects the dots between Pariah and their dreamworld prisons, DC’s magical heroes work to uncover more about the ultimate anomaly behind it all.

RELATED: Dark Crisis Just Introduced Batman’s Ideal World – And It’s Miserable

In this issue, Allen Scott’s Green Lantern leads Wonder Girl, Super Boy, and Nightwing to Justice League Dark headquarters where they encounter Swamp Thing. Nightwing recalls that Black Adam claimed the Great Darkness controlled Pariah and the Army of Darkness. He asks Swamp Thing if he could control Deathstroke as well. He doubts because he sees darkness differently since he visited the spirit world and encountered the great darkness in 1985. Swamp Thing #49-50 (by Alan Moore and Stan Woch). Nightwing’s theory just doesn’t hold water for him because the great darkness he knows doesn’t care about power or the material world in general. Maybe the nature of his origins is a good place to start to really understand him.

by Alan Moore Swamp Thing: The Summon opens with a black bird bearing a black bead that will awaken the Great Darkness after a set of wizards summon it. Swamp Thing hears a lot about the Great Darkness before meeting her. It is a pre-Satan primordial darkness. As a “shadow falling on heaven”, the Darkness is an entity that no scientific defense can stop. It is an entity that even demons fear. The Guardians of the Universe (alien superheroes) cannot detect it as an anomaly. On Earth-1, Solavar, the best scientists of King of Gorillas are unable to defeat him. Alexander Luthor, Earth-3’s only superhero, exclaims that even his science can’t stop him. The Great Darkness is so ethereal and eerie that it causes Brainiac, a living computer, to feel fear for the first time.

RELATED: DC’s First Green Lantern Wants [SPOILER] lead the Justice League

Swamp Thing approaches the entity in the spirit world and walks straight into the great darkness. He responds peacefully as unlike the many creatures that attempt to physically assault him, Swamp Thing enters willingly without any anger. He explains some of what he learned from this encounter – the Great Darkness is neither good nor bad and has only a desire to gain knowledge. He does not seek to control anyone.

What Swamp Thing doesn’t mention is that ultimately the Dark doesn’t want to be alone and will reach out to the Light. The black pearl carried by the bird that gives birth to it is another significant detail in Swamp Thing #49. Link with the dark crisis of August, the flash #785 (by Jeremy Adams and Amancay Nahuelpan) has another Barry Allen of a desert world in possession of a pearl he calls the world’s last bit of magic. His job, he says, is to pick up “where it all began.” At the end of dark crisis #4, the Darkness overcomes Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom but strangely leaves Black Adam unscathed. A multiverse is born and the Great Darkness continues to spread.

RELATED: Black Adam’s Worst Dark Crisis Decision Makes Sense

With these details in mind, it’s clear that Darkness covets Light, and magic is needed to disarm it. If the black pearl of the old Swamp Thing link is yin, then Mad-Max-style Barry Allen is definitely yang. The alternative Barry may have the answer to tame this existential threat. Swamp Thing suggests that someone or something must have corrupted the darkness for its own ends, hinting that an epic and mighty force is at work. Darkness only spreads when summoned and only destroys when it seeks something it covets. As superheroes gather in the Hall of Justice to discuss the nature of the multiverse, DC’s magical heroes will hopefully join them and contribute their knowledge of the supernatural forces at play.

Swamp Thing and his fellow magical heroes make a great team to help theorize about such ambiguities. He proves he is the hero needed to consult since he is the only being extraordinary enough to survive talking to the Great Darkness. These details from earlier links are what make Dark Crisis such a great read for fans of Marv Wolfman-style epics with DC Universe-wide casts. It’s also time for DC’s magical heroes to play a major role in a story featuring a magical pearl and the great metaphysical darkness.

Amazon Prime Video Stars Invincible say that taping for season three of the animated superhero show is already underway, although season two has yet to hit the streaming service.

When a fan asked what the actors’ favorite parts of work were Invincible was, Marquand said “every part”. After asking audience members if they had ever watched it, many said yes, he said, “Okay, good. This show is so good.

Marquand, who plays The Immortal on the show, then gave an update on production for the following seasons, revealing that the cast just finished taping season two “a month or two ago.”

“We have just started recording the third season,” he added.

However, just because the actors are making significant progress in recording their voice performances for the series doesn’t mean there isn’t necessarily a lot more that needs to go in the two seasons before they can. be made public, as Payton pointed out in a remark winking at InvincibleHand drawn 2D animation style.

The best Cobra Kai team will be Chozen and Johnny https://sorryeverybodymyass.com/the-best-cobra-kai-team-will-be-chozen-and-johnny/ Wed, 07 Sep 2022 21:13:34 +0000 https://sorryeverybodymyass.com/the-best-cobra-kai-team-will-be-chozen-and-johnny/ With Season 5 of Cobra Kai impending, fans are excited to see the expanding cast interaction on both sides.

With Season 5 of Cobra Kai impending, fans are excited to see the expanding cast interaction on both sides. After Terry betrays Kreese, the Cobra Kai dojo brings in Kim Da-Eun to make Tory even more aggressive. They just might form a partnership to knock the Miyagi-Do guys out of the arena, which would sure be a breath of fresh air in a male-dominated franchise.

Of course, it’s possible to see more of Daniel and Johnny teaming up, along with a range of permutations and combinations of their loadouts: Hawk, Miguel, Sam, and even a returning Robby. These group situations add dynamism and flair to the show regardless of the competitions. However, considering alpha personalities and attitudes, the best upcoming dynamic duo might actually be Johnny and a new character in California.

Chozen will arrive from Japan to help Daniel improve his dojo. Considering Chozen has some old Miyagi secrets that even Daniel didn’t know about, this is a much appreciated addition. Luckily, he’s changed his ways, maturing a lot and helping Daniel free his mind from the past, so it’ll be exciting to see what he brings to the table.

But clips showed that instead of taking Daniel to Terry’s dojo for a fight, he will be accompanied by Johnny. Now, this has immense potential because Chozen was just as toxic as Johnny was back then, to the point that he considered himself an apex predator, and Daniel the prey, when the American teenager came to Japan. This new climate and the venom of Team Terry could now find Chozen tapping into that old rage, him and Johnny feeding off each other.

Their machismo and testosterone would feel more organic than when Johnny and Daniel team up, and could also see Chozen teaching Johnny forbidden moves instead. After all, he knows that Daniel is on the pure side of things, while Johnny is more risk and bravado. As such, they could become violent weapons, do the dirty work, and be the enforcers that Daniel can’t afford to be.

Daniel has his public image, his car dealership, and his high reputation in the community, which would allow Johnny to use Chozen as the Kreese master wanted to be, so they could clean up the valley as they pleased. Admittedly, this may leave Daniel worried that the duo will undo the good work they’re trying to do. But as a restless Johnny would say, guys like him and Chozen are meant to go wild.

There’s a chance it could backfire, and someone like Kim Da-Eun could teach them a lesson. But chances are Chozen will help instill discipline in Johnny, which will in turn encourage him to lash out a little more against Terry’s crew. In the end, they feel like kindred spirits, allowing Cobra Kai to unleash them fully on their karate-loving villains who might deserve more brutal treatment than Daniel is willing to inflict.

Cobra Kai Season 5 premieres September 9 on Netflix.

The following article contains spoilers from Harley Quinn the Animated Series: The Eat. Bang! Kill. Round.

harley quinn avoided the tragic fate that befell many HBO Max exclusive animated series following Warner Bros.’ merger with Discovery. Not only has harley quinn averted cancellation, but it also managed to get a fourth season. This preferential treatment is just one of many indicators of the series’ accumulated popularity, another being the recent release of Harley Quinn: The Animated Series: The Eat. Bang! Kill. Round (by Tee Franklin, Max Sarin, Marissa Louise and Taylor Esposito) – a spin-off comic published by DC.


Unlike many other spin-offs, Harley Quinn the Animated Series: The Eat. Bang! Kill. Round contributes to the canon of the series on which it is based by presenting a story that helps bridge the gap between the second and third seasons of the series. By advancing the plot of its source material in a gradual yet essential way, the comic stands out as a prime example of derivative storytelling done right.

Taking place immediately after the events of harley quinnIn the Season 2 finale of Poison Ivy, the first issue opens with Harley and Poison Ivy fleeing the smoldering wreckage of Poison Ivy’s abortive marriage to Kite Man with Commissioner Gordon in pursuit. From there, the comic follows the newly formed villainous couple as they embark on the titular tour, which takes the form of a cross-country road trip. Along the way, Harley and Ivy struggle to come to terms with their new relationship while doing everything they can to stay ahead of an increasingly unhinged Gordon.


While comedic spinoffs and ties to popular movies and shows are a dime a dozen, The food. Bang! Kill. Round sets itself apart from others of the same genre by advancing the plot of its source material. While many spin-offs tell stories that take place in the continuity of their series, few of them have a significant impact on the main narrative or the development of the main characters. As a result, they often come across as unnecessary at best and missed opportunities at worst.

In contrast, Harley Quinn: The Animated Series – The Eat. Bang! Kill. Roundwhile not an essential part of the anime series’ story, plays an important role in bridging the gap between Season 2 and Season 3. Throughout its six-issue run, it expands on many of Season 2’s lingering plot points, such as the fallout from the GCPD raid on Ivy and Kite Man’s wedding. The comic also features Harley and Ivy’s first interaction with Nightwing, who becomes an important character in Season 3. the overall plot of the miniseries is self-contained, it further advances the story of the main series in small but essential ways.


RELATED: Harley Quinn May Have Just Secretly Crossed Looney Tunes

However, the show’s strongest contribution to its origin story is easily the development it gives to both Harley and Ivy. Right off the bat, the miniseries explores the two characters’ initial reactions to their decision to finally embrace their long-held feelings for each other before showing how they learn to function as a couple. On their journey across the United States, the two face obstacles that many people face when entering a new relationship, struggling to overcome their lingering traumas and finding strength in one another. other.


By the time the final issue arrives, Harley and Ivy have reached a relatively stable and healthy stage in their relationship which continues into harley quinnSeason 3 premiere. Although the comics are unlikely to will be referenced in the HBO series, the spin-off manages to achieve something that very few spin-off media have – improve on the main series without becoming an obstacle to it. With two more spin-off comics on the way, Harley Quinn: The Animated Series – The Eat. Bang! Kill is a great example of how spin-off comics can expand on their source material.

Although Paramount has not officially announced a premiere date for Season 3 of Star Trek: Picard (showrunner Terry Matalas Assumed it’ll probably be early 2023), thanks to IDW, we’ll be able to get our fix of the Admiral android adventures to tide us over between seasons.

Number 3 star gazer the miniseries takes place between seasons 2 and 3 and is written by picard co-creator/executive producer Kirsten Beyer and longtime Star Trek comic book writer Mike Johnson. The pair are back after co-writing the picard prequel, Countdownback in 2019. Back on the art, Angel Hernandez, who we last saw drawing Linus in Adventures in the 32nd Century #4.

[WARNING: SPOILERS]

Always a dead end scenario

The season 2 finale gave fans a “holy shit!” when Seven has taken command of the damaged USS Stargazer and the comic wisely picks up on its story. star gazer begins with Seven taking on the newly designed Kobayashi Maru, still seen as a no-win scenario, but more of a rescue attempt resulting in an unwinnable space battle with the Klingons. Instead, Admiral Picard reprogrammed the entire simulation to reflect Starfleet’s much less explosive job: diplomacy. While Seven’s commission was only temporary, you could say everyone (including Starfleet) wants to see her in that uniform permanently. Perhaps we will have the answer to this question before the end of this miniseries.

Meanwhile, Jean-Luc Picard is summoned back into space on the new Stargazer to revisit a pre-warp planet of the time before he became wildly challenged. The firstThe Directive and an unexpected adversary prevented the crew from surveying the planet at the time, but Starfleet feels enough time has passed to try again. Succeeding Captain Rios as captain of the Stargazer is an Andorian named Mekara, who invites Picard to return to Jenjor VI, a city planted with an indigenous population of tens of millions and rich in a rare isotope called csylium. When they arrive, of course, things are not as Picard left them.

Hernandez has been in this business for a long time, and there’s a reason he continues to draw Star Trek. The space panels are gorgeous and the close-ups of Picard (old and young) are on point. I always like to know the photo or the frame from which the artist is inspired. And the Kobayashi Maru’s three-eyed aliens are fun and memorable, even if they’re only meant for one time.

Star Trek: Picard – Stargazer has the potential to be a must-read for fans eagerly awaiting Season 3 of picard. Although this first issue is rich in exposition and light on the action until the very end, it does its job of creating anticipation for the next issue. With Beyer and Johnson at the helm, this story is in good hands and I can’t wait to see how it ties into Season 3.
