"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Comic Books, Film
Doug Zawisza, also known as the Black Knight, was a Polish knight and nobleman. He served as a soldier and diplomat under the Polish king Wladyslaw II and Hungarian-Bohemian king Sigismund of Luxembourg. During his life, he was regarded as a model of knightly virtues and was renowned for winning multiple tournaments. His nickname is due to his black hair and his custom-made, black armor, which is kept at the Jasna Góra Monastery.
After his death, he was praised by the Polish historian Jan Dlugosz, the poet and Canon of Gniezno Adam Swinka, and by King Sigismund of Luxembourg. Zawisza became a folk hero in Poland, famed for reliability, and loyalty. The Polish Scouts oath reads partly: "...polegac na nim jak na Zawiszy" ('[you can] rely on [a boyscout] as on Zawisza'). A monument to Zawisza at Golubac fortress, Serbia, bears the inscription: "In Golubac, his life was taken by the Turks, the famous Polish knight, the symbol of courage and honor, Zawisza the Black. Glory to the hero!" Several Polish football clubs and other sports teams were named after him, including, Zawisza Bydgoszcz.

"Times are dark. Depression. War on the horizon. People want stories they can escape into," says Tony Stark of why does what he does. This is a good escape right here.
After the "Blackest Night," there must be a "Brightest Day," if for no other reason than to sell some comics.
"CROK!" That's the sound of the Black Rose being kicked in the nether regions by the Black Widow. How else should you start a series starring Natasha Romanov?
“Tomorrow Dies Today” continues with Wolverine and Deathlok locking horns, or claws and other cybernetic parts.
Power Pack's team-up series continue on, this time leading the Power kids to seek out the aid of Thor.
Adolf Hitler, Baron von Strucker, Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos –--and that’s just within the first ten pages!
You have to admire DC's savvy marketing this week by putting Green Lanterns and a bright green background on the cover of "Wonder Woman" #42.
The Terminator franchise returns to comics with a story set before it all began. This story focuses on Kyle Reese, the resistance fighter who comes back in time to find Sarah Connor.
"Dark Wolverine" continues to be embroiled in "Siege," but this issue doesn't do much more than that.
: "Blackest Night" draws to a close with "Brightest Day" looming on the horizon, but is it worthwhile? I say most definitely. And thank you.
Wolverine is about to take on Romulus (completely different meaning for those of us living the metro-Detroit area) and needs to lay some old ghosts to rest.
Roger Stern joins Team Webhead for a very special Juggernaut-centric Spider-Man story that starts with Peter Parker getting a Spider-sense induced migraine.
BAMF! It's an all-new re-telling of the origin of Nightcrawler. As a bonus, you also get a reprint of the first three pages of Nightcrawler's first appearance.
The former sidekick formerly known as Speedy wakes up and nothing will ever be the same again!!!
In the words of one of the main characters, ". . . we're wasting our time and trying to change a world that doesn't want to be changed." I disagree. This isn't a waste of time, this is a good read.
The Siege of Asgard continues to rage on as this tale adds threads to the fabric woven in "Siege" proper.
The Thunderbolts -- Norman Osborn's Thunderbolts -- are on a quest in the realm of Asgard. This quest, of course, leads to trouble.
This issue is being billed as the penultimate chapter to "Blackest Night." I kinda thought that designation was fulfilled with "Blackest Night" #7, but I guess not. Semantics.
X-23 is treated to a reunion with her co-stars from "NYX" and they meet one of her new co-stars. It's not as compelling as it sounds here.
While I love it when a plan comes together, this comic could have used a bit more of a plan.
