While I am over the moon with excitement for the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie (especially after the clip shown at this year’s San Diego Comicon), I did notice while looking at the team pic that WB released that the League is basically a sausage party with Wonder Woman as the lone female presence on the team. And that is something that really needs to be rectified as quickly as possible which shouldn’t be hard since DC Comics has some really cool women heroes to choose from (as the image above, wonderfully drawn by Peter Nguyen certainly proves).

If you are a comic book reader of a certain age then you have fond memories of the ads for Hostess snacks that used to appear in the comics of the day. Super-heroes would face off against all manner of villains and defeat them by using the sugary goodness of a Twinkie, Ho Ho or fruit pie. All the heroes got in on the act but the most prolific were Batman and Spider-Man. So it was a sad day indeed when I read that Hostess Spidey was going to get deaded as part of this “Spider-Verse” currently crossover running through the Spider-Man books.
