Prelude to Countdown to Halloween 2014

As you can tell, I have changed the header and some of the font colors here at Moongem Comics in anticipation of Countdown to Halloween 2014 that will start October 1st and last until October 31st. There will be plenty of treats and perhaps a trick or two.

Don't forget to visit the Official Countdown to Halloween website to see how other blogs are celebrating the season.

Doctor/Doc Fate of Earth 20

In Infinite Crisis: Fight For The Multiverse #19, he is called Doctor Fate of Earth 20 and employs phase-blasters:
Doctor Fate of Earth 20 from Infinite Crisis: Fight For The Multiverse #19 from DC Comics
In Multiversity: The Society of Super-Heroes #1, he is Doc Fate because that was is father's nickname for him:
Doc Fate from Multiversity: The Society of Super-Heroes #1 from DC Comics
Whatever he is called, it's great to see an alternative version of Dr. Fate from DC Comics. I actually enjoyed the latter issue more for he comes to unpleasant fate in the former issue and the art is better.

My Thoughts On Gotham

I watched the encore presentation of FOX's Gotham earlier this evening. I have noticed a few things. Oswald aka the Penguin, Nigma aka the Riddler and the unnamed comic aka the Joker if that was indeed him are much older than Bruce Wayne while Selina Kyle aka Catwoman and Ivy Pepper aka Poison Ivy are closer to his age. Selina seems to be stalking Bruce so I hope she gets a more active role. I would also like to see more Alfred. James Gordon and Bullock were great for the former is the rookie while the latter is the veteran that is just trying to survive the corruption. Fish and Falcone are both strong characters and I can't wait to see more of them too. I do want to watch more even though Bruce may never actually don the Batman costume so I can't wait until next week's episode.

Big Bang Theory vs Gotham

Tonight is a big night for the season premiere of Big Bang Theory on CBS is tonight at the same time that FOX is airing the first episode of Gotham. As much as I want to watch the latter, I will end up watching the former since I need my laughs more than I need more drama.

New Marvel Super Hero Checks and Labels at Walmart Flyer

I received the new Marvel Super Hero checks and address labels at Walmart flyer along with my monthly credit card bill today. The front clearly shows the Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor gathered together on the left side. This series is being called the "Avengers Assemble" series but you have to read the small print to notice it. The checks shown are of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk while the labels shown include Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and the Falcon.

According to Dwayne Johnson to Play Black Adam in Shazam!, he had the choice to play either the heroic Captain Marvel, who is now known as Shazam, or the villainous Black Adam. I think he choose wisely.
