STATIC SHOCK

As previously noted here at the Comic Reel, Toonzone reports that Batman Beyond teams up with the electric-themed hero in the time traveling season opener, "Future Shock," which airs Saturday, January 17th at 11:30 AM ET. Comics Continuum has a schedule of episodes playing in syndication up to the new season premiere.

MUTANT X

Comics Continuum also notes that "Brother's Keeper" will be the January 19th episode of the Xavier-free syndicated series. Tribune Entertainment describes the story as follows: "The Mutant X team learns about Lexa's (Karen Cliche, pictured right) estranged twin brother when he becomes the main target of an underground operation harvesting mutant organs." They have a complete rundown of the season's episodes available as well.

HELLBOY

Diamond Select is offering a flash "sneak peek" of toys from the Dark Horse adaptation on their website. The preview outlines the plot of the movie, from the title character's point of view, and features art from the film next to text descriptions of what will be available.

PUNISHER

Superherohype has two notes about the Thomas Jane action film. One reader reports that he saw a new poster in theatres, but it isn't easily available on the official site nor has any announcement been made about it. Secondly, IMDB lists Carlo Siliotto as the person scoring the film, a fact verified by an email to the man himself.

SMALLVILLE

Trust the WB to count on people being away for the holidays -- during their broadcast premiere of the Sanaa Lathan/Omar Epps movie "Love & Basketball," the network aired an all new clip from the event episode "Asylum." Of course, Kryptonsite was on hand to make a slideshow of it.

GARFIELD

The Internet Movie Poster Awards site has the first look at the new teaser poster for the comic adaptation, featuring the voice of Bill Murray as the lasagna-loving cat.
