Dark Burgundy and Tan Hot Wheels Arkham Knight Batmobiles

Now this is a switch for I got the dark burgundy and tan Arkham Knight Batmobiles from Hot Wheels a week apart. I got the dark burgundy Arkham Knight Batmobile at the local Dollar General about a week ago. The light in my room must be bad for it looks all black to me and still looks all black when I shine a bright flashlight on it. The tan Arkham Knight Batmobile is not a solid color and has some brown patches (I think the term is desert camouflage). I picked it up at the local Walmart's about two weeks ago. Both are #1 in the Batman set of five and #8 in the mainline set of 25-. Both have 2020 on the back but both have 2015 on their undercarriages. I find it odd that the tan Batmobile has the DC logo by the Batman Arkham Knight logo while the dark burgundy does not.

Women Wednesday: Elvira Celebrates Pride Month

June is Pride Month and here is what Elvira herself has to say about it in her official fang mail newsletter (sign up for it at her site):

"It’s that gal in the wig who’s talents are BIG — Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. June is here, it’s queer, and ya know what that means... that’s right, it’s Pride Month! I’ve always said that I was raised by a pack of wild drag queens and since then I’ve definitely raised a few myself! I will always support my friends in the LGBTQ+ community."

Doctor Moongem Meets Green Arrow and Green Lantern

As Doctor Moongem in DC Univers Online, I teamed up with Green Arrow and Green Lantern. The three of us faced Spectre, who had lost his humanity. It turned out that Eclipso was behind it and we had to defeat him too.

Women Wednesday: Doctor Moongem Meets Huntress, Supergirl and Zatanna

While I was playing Doctor Moongem in DC Universe Online, I got to meet the Huntress, Supergirl and Zatanna. The Huntress actually had me find clues in the Justice League Watchtower (that place is huge and easy to get lost even with the map). I had to save Supergirl before helping her save Superman. I actually helped Zatanna on a couple of missions.

Doctor Moongem Meets Doctor Fate and Phantom Stranger

Doctor Moongem has met a lot of superheroes in DC Universe Online. Among my favorites are Dr. Fate and Phantom Stranger. Neither one really has much to say but each of them did let me get a photo with them.

Introducing Doctor Moongem

You may have been wondering why I haven't been posting for almost a month. I finally got DC Universe Online working and I have been playing Doctor Moongem. He is a mystical martial artist that can fly and has a Guardian that he can summon (I call him Gargoyle). I originally wanted to name him Moongem but that name was taken. His costume was going to be all white but I couldn't do that so his costume is mostly red and blue with some yellow. I reached 30th level pretty fast in about two weeks then started playing the other missions. I do not like the multiplayer aspect of this game so I will probably not be playing it as much now since it gets really repeative.

DC Horror Presents: The Conjuring: The Lover #1

From Upcoming DC Comics July 2021 Revealed:

"The terrifying debut of the tie-in to The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It begins here, with a story that’s bursting at the seams with clues about the new film. Meet Jessica. Jessica just returned to her freshman year of college after winter break, bringing with her the anxieties of last semester’s poor grades, the awkwardness of facing a boy she wishes she’d never slept with, and an undeniably unnerving feeling of being watched.

"She soon comes to realize that something evil made her its target, and it will not rest until it has her in its unholy grip. But why did this sinister presence set its sights on a seemingly normal college freshman? Read this nerve-racking tale, creepily crafted by Conjuring screenwriter David L. Johnson-McGoldrick and Rex Ogle with heart-stopping art from Garry Brown and chill-inducing covers by Bill Sienkiewicz, to find out!"

First Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Teaser Trailer and

Here's the first teaser trailer for Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings:

Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) will be the son of the real Mandarian (Tony Leung) instead of Fu Manchu so I guess he would be the master of assassins instead of the master of kung-fu.
