Best Buds: 8 Pairs of Lifelong Super Friends

Good friends are important, and best buds even more so. Someone who has your back, and who will be there when the chips are down. And of course, a heavily super powered friend that shares your own values, motivations, and love for extremely tight uniforms has to be pretty much the best thing ever.

There have been a lot of great pairings over the years in the comic book world, from best friends to friendly rivals. With more than a few friends taking each other on in the theaters next year with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War, it’s important to take stock of these friendships that have developed on-screen and in the comics for years. Sure, they’re fighting now, but chances are after the battle they’ll all go and grab a few beers and bro out over the battle.

There are quite a few more great friendships among the superhero community, buddies that have been through the thick and the thin, fought each other more times than they could count, and have even survived the ‘finality’ of death (at least until the inevitable rebirth). Let’s take a look at some Superhero Best Buds that have survived the test of time.

Super Saturdays: The 20 Best Superhero Cartoons, Part I

I’ve always been a big fan of cartoons. Any and all cartoons really, but like most of my passions in life, anything superhero related automatically took precedence. So it’s no surprise that I have been a huge fan of the various superhero animated series that have aired over the years on the various networks. Thankfully, my love for cartoons never disappeared as I got older, much to the chagrin of my parents, friends, and love interests.

Yes, love interests. It’s rare to find that special someone who doesn’t mind a multi-season marathon of the numerous Batman series that have aired over the years, but it’s something I have accepted. Because I live for the multi-season marathon, so that isn’t going to change anytime soon. I’m getting a little off topic here, and possibly airing my desperate loneliness to the world at large, so we should move on.

As I started looking through my collection to determine the next series I should line up for a marathon, I began thinking that not everyone has the collection or desire to really sit down and get into some of these cartoons, especially with so many out there. So, like any self-respecting (and horribly alone) comic book cartoon fan I felt it was my duty to create the following list to share with you, and to help decide what exactly I am going to watch next, and what you should start with.

Everybody wins. Mainly I win, though.

Warner Bros. Releases DC Film Slate, Ten Movies Coming By 2020

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara spoke at their annual investors meeting, where he revealed a little more about the studio’s plans for their DC Comic properties. Those plans consist of ten movies being released from 2016 to 2020, and include the confirmation of a few things we already suspected.

The slate goes as follows:

SDCC2013: The Lego Movie Gets a Poster, a Game, and Big-Name Voices!

So I’ve already gushed over The Lego Movie trailer but now there’s even more news coming out of Comic-Con, plus a new poster so I get to do it all over again!

First off, check out this new The Lego Movie Comic-Con exclusive poster!

Lego Movie

Love that lens flare.

Not only is there a new poster, but it was announced this week that there will be a The Lego Movie video game as well. Much like their other games, such as Lego Marvel Super Heroes, it will have plenty of characters to collect and play, 90 to be exact. Plus 15 levels of Lego Movie fun!

Just that news would be enough but during the Warner Bros./Legendary panel at Comic-Con, which brought us the news of the Man of Steel sequel and Flash and Justice League movies, the actors who would be providing some of the voices of the characters in The Lego Movie were announced as well.

It had already been announced that the main character, Emmet, would be voiced by the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy star, Chris Pratt, but now we also know that Channing Tatum will be providing the voice of Superman and Jonah Hill that of Green Lantern. While those are big names, it’s the voice of Wonder Woman that is a little bit surprising.

Wonder Woman The Lego Movie

Perhaps having one of the busiest Comic-Con’s this year, it’s none other than Cobie Smulders. One minute she’s part of the huge Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, the next she’s moving over to DC (sort of) as Wonder Woman’s voice. Oh and her CBS show, HIMYM, officially announced it’s final season. Girlfriend is a hot commodity right now!

One big update on Lego Marvel Super Heroes and his name is Stan Lee. I don’t know if you’ve heard of him, but you might have. Check out what the guys over at IGN have to say about the Marvel mastermind’s involvement.

That does if for a Lego update, be sure to catch all of Grizzly Bomb’s Comic-Con coverage through the weekend and in the coming days as we consume and digest this gluttonous amount of info from San Diego!

Cartoon Network Cancels ‘Young Justice’ and ‘Green Lantern: TAS’

I have to say, I’m pretty upset right now. For those that have been reading the site for awhile, you should be well aware of my deep seated love for both comics and cartoons. So when you combine both and tease me with the prospect of a comic based cartoon, you can pretty much guarantee I’ll be a die hard fan. And I’m not alone. I mean, I am horribly alone in my personal life, yes, but I have plenty of fan brethren that feel as I do about comics and cartoons.
