For those of you who are both comic book folk AND video game folk DC Universe is now free to play on PSN.

And it's a solid game. Nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about either. If you're a big fan of RPG you will get frustrated with the power trees because they aren't very good, but really the combat is fun, the severs generally do a nice job (until late at night), and you get 3 hero lines and 3 villain lines for free plus something like 5 different power classes so... a lot of game for no money, and then you have the option of purchasing the packs to get different arches and powers. I have seen no sign of needing to pay to play the ones for free though. No level cap or special item that you HAVE to buy. Not yet at least

It does take forever to open the first time, but if you aren't gonna be playing anything that day just let it run and you'll have it sooner than you think.

Actor Anthony Mackie will play Cap's partner Falcon in the forthcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The Hollywood Reporter says the Hurt Locker and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter actor is currently in negotiations with Marvel Studios to play Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, a social worker-turned-costumed crime fighter in Harlem.

Falcon was the first African-American superhero in mainstream comics. In the original Marvel Comics, Falcon became an Avenger; in the Ultimates universe, he is an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

What's the issue for it. His contract? No. Then what?

Nothing. He'd be perfect. Why go young when you can do a grizzled veteran deal?

Started reading Sinistro Corps War...boy, im finding it oddly difficult to get into the Lanterns in general. For a long time i didn't really follow them much so i'm trying now and i guess i'm just not much of a space/cosmic fan.

If Sinestro Corps. War doesn't do it for you... well then it just might not be your title cause that's a fantastic saga.

What titles do you consider your favorites?
