There are some images that just make the outdoors more inviting, and Rufskin's ( model David Webster certainly helps with that! Seen in these images for both Rufskin and Pix, he's certainly a selling point!

It turns out that after only a handful of issues that backup feature "Legion of Superheroes" will take over venture Comis, leaving Superboy once again homeless! No doubt they'll find a spot for him in one of the Titans team books, but with several related Super books being published (Superman, Action, Supergirl, New Krypton), and less high profile characters getting spotlights, isn't it time to welcome Conner back into the Family?

I feel warmer already.

So,this month in "Justice League: Cry For Justice" #4, James Robinson teases a flirtation between Captain Marvel (Shazam) and Supergirl, and it's probably the only decent thing about the book, other than the art by Mauro Cascioli, which for me is the selling point. "CFJ" is really a bad concept, but retread often in the comics industry. Group bands together to fight evil, help people, winds up over many issues fighting attacks on the group headquaretrs or a betrayal within the group, etc., to the point that a splinter group redefines the mission and gives the new writer a chance to work with characters not mandated by the original group's parameters, and sometimes with a 'harder' edge. They generally set in to a formula and become the very type of team they originally rebeled against. And so it goes.
Captain Marvel, Jr., aka Freddy Freeman was created back in the 1940s as a junior version of Captain Marvel, except that Captain Marvel himself was a kid, Billy Batson, who, when he said the word "Shazam!" became an adult superbeing! Eventually, Billy's twin sister, Mary, would turn into a superbeing called "Mary Marvel" when she said the same word (though she generally remained the same age as a Marvel), and Freddy Freeman, crippled in attack, would be fully healed, but the same age as he was normally when he said "Captain Marvel", becoming the superbeing 'Captain Marvel Jr.", a drwaback of which was that he couldn't say his name to anyone wihtout reverting back to Freddy.

Lately, Freddy's become Billy's replacement. Supergirl has a olong and convoluted history, but she is essentially the cousin of Superman, Kara Zor-El of Krypton, with a secret identity of Linda Lang, and has the same powers as any Kryptonian under a yellow sun. As a counterpart of a major character, like Freddy, Kara's future and current use are more flexible than most characters. A relationship between Freddy and Kara might be just what the DCU needs, linking two iconic 'families'. And, besides, an earlier version of Kara had her in love with a merboy and her horse. This is a step in the right direction at any rate.

Marlon Teixeira featured in the spring ad campaign for Brazilian label Vila Romana.Very cool looking.
