Wonder Woman Wednesday...
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman.
All the world's waiting for you,
and the power you possess.
In your satin tights,
Fighting for your rights
And the old Red, White and Blue.

Fox Developing ‘Silver Surfer’ Movie, ‘New Mutants’ Reshoots Will Add Character
Disney/Fox merger? What Disney/Fox merger? What looked so certain in December, is still under review, as lawyerly types sift through mountains of paperwork, and executives wait to see if the deal will get government approval. So, until more is known, Fox is pressing ahead with their mutant movie plans, Marvel be damned, and they’ve got a lot in the works.
We already know that Kitty Pryde and Doctor Doom movies are brewing, but there’s more cooking up. The forever delayed “Gambit” is searching yet again for another director, after Gore Verbinski bailed in January, and it’s still being rewritten, with a new script expected to arrive next month.
Meanwhile, Silver Surfer will get on the big screen in his own movie, the first for the character since 2007’s not particularly well liked “Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer” (kinda makes you wonder how long Fox is going to dance around rebooting the Fantastic Four after the dismal 2015 movie). If you’re having a feeling of deja vu, circa ‘Rise Of The Silver Surfer,’ Fox did hire J. Michael Straczynski (“Babylon 5,” “World War Z,” “Sense8“) to write a spin-off movie for the character, but it never happened. The film’s director Tim Story has always believed he just a bit ahead of the curve to do the character justice.
It looks like every Marvel character is getting their own movie. Should I hold my breath for Deadpool the Duck?

"The Times That Bind!":
The Vision's trip through time marches on as the synthezoid avenger discovers the sad fate of the original Human Torch. After going nova in the 1950's, the torch's body remained dormant and missing for many years until the Mad Thinker located it. However, the twisted thinker just resurrected the torch in order to attack the Fantastic Four. After the FF's victory (in Fantastic Four Annual 4), the original Human Torch became inactive again…until someone else, someone even more evil, found the android body! Also traveling through time, Mantis and her teammates learn how the pacifist Kree and the Cotati worked together to defeat the militant Kree and the Star Stalker centuries ago. And then they observe how the Kree came to Earth to plant the Cotati in Vietnam years later. Meanwhile back in the present time at Avengers Mansion, a confident Scarlet Witch wins a brief skirmish against Moondragon. Origin of the Vision. Origin of Mantis. Cameo appearances by Agatha Harkness and Libra. Flashback cameos by Immortus, the Supreme Intelligence, Quasimodo, Toro, Ultron-5, and the Fantastic Four. Avengers Lineup: Iron Man, Hawkeye, Mantis, Scarlet Witch, Thor, and the Vision.

Dark Announces The Return Of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"
Dark Horse is proud to announce the return of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Serenity) and Christos Gage (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel & Faith, Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil, Avengers Academy) to unite the Buffyverse for a battle-filled four-issue series Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning this June! Buffyverse alumnus artist Georges Jeanty (Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) also returns to lend his illustrative skills to the next installment.
Following the world-altering finale of Season 11, Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they've learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long. When Dawn and Xander's housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with—Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future—Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers, forever.
This action-packed miniseries reunites the Buffyverse with the return of Angel, Faith, Illyria, and Fray, the Slayer from the future!

Palladium Games has Lost the Robotech License - Robotech KS Backers PISSED! (no more Palladium Robotech RPG either)
When the Robotech® RPG Tactics (RRT) Kickstarter funded in May 2013, we cheered, hugged and actually danced down the halls at the Palladium office. Not just because of the amount of money raised thanks to your pledges, but because it meant the realization of our dreams for Robotech®. For Palladium Books, it signified bringing Robotech fans – ourselves among them – something new and exciting to the beloved Robotech® universe.
So it is with sadness and tremendous heartbreak that I announce that, despite our best efforts, we are unable to produce the Robotech® RPG Tactics Wave Two rewards. Moreover, after proudly carrying the legacy of Robotech® in the role-playing games medium for 30 years, our license has expired and is not being renewed.
Palladium’s Business Manager, Scott Gibbons, intended to write this post, but I thought it should come from me. I have spent the better part of a week trying to find the words to explain what happened and express to you how sorry we are that it has come to this. In the end, we decided it best to keep it simple and share with you the broad strokes of how things unfolded without getting too deep into the weeds or violating any Non-Disclosure Agreements.
Now to end on a positive note:
Moral Benefits of Wisdom
My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
