Weekly Geeky Question #41: A DC Extended Universe Gameplan

Every week in 2018, the plan is that my friend Rod is going to ask me some geeky question that will answer in a post. This week is Week #41, and this time around the question is the same as it was last time, because I didn’t finish it last time:

How would I save the DC Extended Universe (again)?

12 Times Doctor Who has Reinvented Itself

Very soon, on October 7 2018, Doctor Who will make its way back to our TV screens for the 11th season of the modern TV series.  And when it does, it will in many ways be a whole new program, compared to what we saw last:  a new Doctor (with a new gender), new companions, new showrunner.  Probably a new version of the theme song and a new opening title sequence, a new TARDIS set and a new sonic screwdriver. And certainly a new story direction, with plot-lines like redeeming the Master or identifying the Hybrid a thing of the past.

Favorite Fictional Heroes Countdown–Part 10 (#10-5)

And the countdown to my favorite fictional hero continues.  In today’s post, we have focus on just 6 characters, rather than 10, just to slow it down a bit as we approach the top.  Of these 6, 1 is female, and 5 are male. 4 are considered to be especially formidable hand-to-hand combatants.  2 were on the same superhero team together for years, and 2 were on another superhero team together for years.  One of each of those pairs is the same character, and his two teammates were also partners with each other for years.  Got all that?  Good, let’s go…
