What’s Up Nerds?
Run Barry Run…Those three words sum up this first episode that we have that celebrates the Scarlet Speedster and other comics shows on TV. Join Big Evil, Greekimus Prime, C-Mart, and Undies of Wondy for a wonderful geekiest celebrating The Flash!
Been a long time, but Big Evil’s back with a pretty awesome video courtesy of the CW. With all the Marvel news lately; DD, Avengers, Ant Man, the folks at the CW didn’t want you to forget about their awesome DC properties Flash and Arrow. With that, they’ve put together a fun little “Fight Club” that pits our favorite heroes versus their nemeses. It’s completely out of context, but shows that the CW isn’t afraid to have fun with their shows, check it out…
Not bad, right? Well imagine if they took this concept and did something with it a la Roulette; who is a pretty cool DC villain, usually associated with the Justice Society, but also has a history with Ollie in other TV interpretations of him on both Justice League Unlimited and Smallville. Although probably just a fun one off, it’d be cool to see something like this on Arrow where there is some sort of deathmatch!
Alas, no Slade Wilson or Ray Palmer…guess they were busy.
Anyway,make sure that you watch the last 5 episodes of the season where Ollie has to deal with Ra’s and Barry dukes it out with the Reverse Flash!
‘Til next time nerds!

I know, I know… I’ve been slacking in my issue by issue coverage of the monthly Deathstroke series. But can you blame me? To ask why I’m not excited to read the latest issue of this book when it hits the stands is to say “Why the long face?” to someone standing over a freshly dug grave.
What’s Up Nerds?
This week we return to the Evil Lair to hear Big Evil and C-Mart just chew the fat about movies, shows, games, and comics! That’s right, it’s a regular rantin’ and ramblin’ good time.. so sit back, relax, and get ready to write a strongly worded letter to the producers of Gotham!
DC’s newest volume of Deathstroke is basically a nine-volt battery to the tongue. It’s not pleasant, and it’s more than a little unsettling. And yet for some reason, I find myself trying it again even though I know it’s terrible.
So, maybe I’m the only weirdo who intentionally runs electrical current through his face, but I know there are plenty of assholes out there who continue following this comic. As I mentioned in my review of the first issue, the buzz around the book was inexplicably positive. This time around it’s not quite so widely loved but much to my chagrin it is not universally reviled.
Just as confounding, in my eyes, is this book’s utter disregard for the continuity in which it exists. At the end of the last issue, we saw a rejuvenated Slade Wilson being all sexy after the mystical I-Ching resurrected his bullet-riddled mercenary ass. I commented in my write-up that I wasn’t sure if it was actually Deathstroke (it is) because he had black hair whereas young Slade Wilson was always shown to have blonde hair. Now, you may be saying “Kang, you dummy! This is the New 52 continuity, maybe Deathstroke is some swarthy raven-haired fellow in this version of DC’s history.”
