SH141: Our DCEU – Justice League

SH127: Our DECU: Justice League Dark

We continue our DC Universe ReWrite with Justice League Dark! If you missed our first two DCEU ReWrite episodes, please see episodes 119: Man of Steel and 123: Batman vs Superman. We left the DCEU in a very different place and decided that the next logical step was actually a Justice League Dark movie rather than a normal Justice League. We also talk news including the new Oscars category, Tessa Thompson joining Lady and the Tramp, the dumpster fire that is MoviePass, and more!

What do you think of our Justice League Dark movie? Do you like the direction our own DCEU is taking? What do you want to see us ReWrite in the future? We want to know!

Costume Couture: DC Bombshells

Versus #1 – Marvel v DC

Rae pits Derreck and Ryan against each other in our first Versus battle, each having to defend their respective DC or Marvel superhero.

Transcribed from 3/16/16 episode of Screen Heroes: Episode 13 “VS. #1 Marvel v. DC”

Rules:

  1. Each will represent either DC or Marvel. Derreck is defending DC. Ryan is defending Marvel.
  2. You can use any version of the character that exists in canon.
  3. One switch is allowed where Derreck can defend the Marvel character and Ryan can defend DC.
  4. Maximum of 7 minutes total for each fight.
  5. 1 point is awarded for winning the match, 1 point awarded for audience popularity.

Fight 1: Captain America versus Batman

Ryan: Captain America has super strength, shield, and gun (may not even need the gun against Batman). In the comics, he’s been able to throw a motorcycle. Both characters are tactically mindful, but Captain America is a stronger power. Yes, Batman has a lot of toys, but Captain America doesn’t need a lot of toys. In Civil War, he punched a hole in Iron Man’s chest.

Derreck: Batman has a large amount of accessories which help him with every fight.  It wouldn’t be a slug fest. He’d have different suits of armor, his utility belt, and multiple weapons. So Batman is going to come at him from multiple angles and in stealth mode. Fights don’t always come down to strength. Batman is an elite martial artist and can out fight so many people. Captain America is a military brawler; Batman is a ghost.

Rae: Captain America wins! 1 point to Ryan for winning the argument, 1 point to Ryan for convincing the audience.

Derreck: 0      Ryan: 2

Fight 2: Wonder Woman versus Captain Marvel

Derreck: Wonder Woman is a warrior princess, trained from birth to be a warrior with multiple weapons and hand-to-hand combat.  She has the ability to fly in some versions.  With the shield, and the bracelets, she can easily block any projectile from Captain Marvel. Wonder Woman can keep up with Superman and even defeated him before. She is a warrior and her whole society is built on protecting their land.

Ryan: Captain Marvel has similar powers to Wonder Woman. She has flight and super strength. Wonder Woman has an advantage with the shield and sword. She has a much cooler outfit.  Captain Marvel is almost the Superman of the Marvel universe, because of her endurance and speed. She also has energy beams that are projected. She was Binary, which was a known planet buster, she can control gravity.

Rae: Derreck concedes to the blowing up a planet argument. 1 point to Ryan for winning the argument, 1 point to Ryan for convincing audience.

Derreck: 0      Ryan: 4

Fight 3: Daredevil versus Robin

Ryan: There are some versions of Daredevil where he does have super human strength. His senses are incredibly heightened. Daredevil can dodge bullets, which Jason Todd cannot. He can take a lot of punishment, and with his armor, it’s even more.  Daredevil’s senses are heightened and he is trained by ninjas.

Derreck: Red Hood, used to be a Robin, which means he was taught by Batman, so he knows all the same martial arts that Batman does. He’s been in the Lazarus pit, and that has been known to cause a blood lust in people. He could always set traps. Most of the Batman characters tend to have prep time. Jason Todd also uses weapons, like guns, unlike Daredevil who is not impervious to bullets. All he does is beat the crap out of people for living, so he does that all day long, unlike Daredevil.

Rae: After lethal force is used, Red Hood would win. 1 point to Derreck for winning the argument, 1 point to Ryan for convincing audience.

Derreck: 1      Ryan: 5

Fight 4: Martian Manhunter versus Vision

Ryan: Vision has the ability to change his density which we’ve seen him use in Age of Ultron. He can also phase, demonstrated by how he killed Ultron in the MCU. His vibranium body can withstand quite a bit of destruction. Vision is an incarnation of JARVIS, at least in the MCU, so there could be instant calculations and predictions of what Martian Manhunter will do.

Derreck: Martian Manhunter has an incredible amount of powers. He can shape shift, which he often uses it to change into a dragon. He can telepathically connect to others. He can phase through objects. He’s much more powerful than Vision. He could easily phase through and rip out the gem in Vision’s forehead. Vision does have a body and has to conform to physics. J’onn is very powerful being that could destroy someone powered by a stone.

Rae: Ryan concedes. Moderator point and audience point goes to Derreck.

Derreck: 3      Ryan: 5

Fight 5: Thor versus Superman

Ryan: Superman’s biggest weakness is magic, and Thor’s powers are based in magic. He can wield lightning, similar to Shazam. His durability is similar to Superman’s. He’s also been a planet buster before. But Thor’s magic really tips the battle to him. He was able to end Ragnarok with one blast and defeat reality warping characters.  Rune King Thor doesn’t need his hammer and can defeat Superman that way.

Derreck: Thor’s powers come from the hammer, so if Superman is able to get that hammer out of his hand, not lift it, would just make Thor a normal strong person. To go back to the planet buster theory, Superman could go back in time before the battle even began to a time when Thor isn’t holding the hammer and defeat him by surprise. He’s been able to take on Doomsday, Darkseid, and Brainiac by himself. Thor also has never been known to able to live in space, so Superman could easily take the fight there and win.

Rae: Moderator point to Derreck, audience point to Ryan

Derreck: 4      Ryan: 6

Fight 6: Green Arrow versus Hawkeye

Ryan: The two are very evenly matched. Clint has military training, from SHIELD, as a tactician, which helps give him an edge. Clint has also acted as a mercenary. He’s a more logical thinker under duress.

Derreck: Green Arrow has the same type of training that Batman has, so he’s a skilled fighter in hand-to-hand. He’s an expert marksman in multiple weapons, arrows, knives, and guns, even if he doesn’t like to use them. Hawkeye hasn’t proven that he has any hand to hand combat training.

Rae: Since this was an audience suggestion, one point is awarded to Derreck. No moderator point at this time.

Derreck: 5     Ryan: 6

Fight 7: Zatanna versus Scarlet Witch

Ryan: Scarlet Witch is a reality warper. She could easily blink Zatanna out of existence if she wanted. She has been able to teleport people from planet to planet, so she could take care of Zatanna that way.

Derreck: Zatanna has mental powers. All she has to do is think things, and they happen. Because she is magical, her powers are not just within her, but around her.

Rae: Ryan concedes, one point to Derreck from moderator. Winner of the audience point is Ryan.

Derreck: 6     Ryan: 7

Fight 8: Doctor Fate versus Doctor Strange

Ryan: Doctor Strange isn’t centuries old, but he’s inconsistently one of the most powerful people in the Marvel universe. He’s taken blasts from characters that destroy planets. Doctor Strange has been able to absorb blasts from the Living Tribunal. The Eye of Agamotto can rip holes through eternity. Doctor Strange is still the Sorcerer Supreme, and still has powers without the Eye.  There are gods and then people above gods, and then these guys.

Derreck: Doctor Fate is similar to Zatanna in the way that he is a magic based character in Justice League Dark. His powers are in his helmet. He’s been able to travel from dimension to dimension. He can fly, bend reality, travel through time, mind wipe people, and one version of him he’s grown so powerful, he no longer needed a host body so the helmet just created a body. That version can survive everything because the helmet cannot be destroyed. If Doctor Fate removes Doctor Strange’s amulet, he’s much less powerful. Doctor Fate doesn’t have to worry about any human disadvantages, like mortality.

Rae: Ryan concedes to Doctor Fate’s indestructibility. Derreck wins the moderator point.

Derreck: 7     Ryan: 7

SH S3E07: Justice League Dark Movie Review

Justice League Dark, the magical forces of good…. well, not bad. The DCAU continues with its seventh movie which focuses on a new group of heroes that are masters in the art of magic, something Batman is not fond of. We also discuss Mel Gibson’s possible entry into the DCEU as well as the fate, at least as of now, for Hellboy 3.

SH S3E07: Justice League Dark Movie Review

SH S1E18: “Would you Watch it?” Justice League Dark

With Guillermo del Toro officially off the DC Entertainment project Justice League Dark, we sit down to talk about who we would each cast as the many heroes, villains, and sign as the director for our version of the DCEU film. The three of us have very different ideas that include varying directors, lead actors, and overall plot. Catch who we put in the driver’s seat of Justice League Dark and then let us know if you agree with our casting or who you would put on the big screen instead!

Who is typically in the Justice League Dark? This mystical group of heroes tends to be led by Constantine and Zatanna with fellow heroes Deadman, Swamp Thing, and even Madame Xanadu.

Also, we provide some insight into a future contest where the winner will receive a Wal-Mart exclusive Black Panther POP vinyl! You’ll have to listen to learn more, so tune in!

Don’t forget to join us every Tuesday night at 8PM CST on Twitch for our live streams of the podcast. Subscribe now at twitch.tv\griddaily.

SH S1E18: “Would you Watch it?” Justice League Dark

I Ship It Ep. 01 – Batman & Zatanna

Welcome to the premiere episode of The Grid Daily’s first original web series, I Ship It, starring Rae, co-host of the weekly podcast series Screen Heroes and half of the cosplay duo Super Sirens. In this new weekly web series, Rae will Ship two characters from fictional universes including DC and Marvel comics, sci-fi TV and movies, fantasy novels, and more. Season 1 will focus on comic book characters with the first episode taking a look at one of DC Comics’ most iconic heroes and one of the founding members of the Justice League, Batman, along with one of the most powerful female heroes in the DC Universe, Zatanna.

Check out the video below, subscribe to our YouTube channel and let us know your thoughts in the comments! Help us make this show great!

There you have it folks, episode 01 of our brand new series, I Ship It! We hope you enjoyed it. As Rae said, we’ll be looking for viewer suggestions for character pairings AND if your suggestion is picked, you might just win some prizes along the way. So, stay tuned for next week’s episode and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel!

I Ship It Ep. 01 – Batman & Zatanna

Preview: “I Ship It” Web Series Debut

Here at The Grid Daily, we are always trying to come up with new ways to express our fandom. That’s why, beginning Tuesday, February 9th, we’ll be debuting our new web series I Ship It hosted by me (Rae of the Super Sirens)!

What’s the new series about? Every week, I’ll match-up two fictional characters whom I believe would just make the best couple ever. I’ll also take suggestions from viewers!

Now, these fictional characters can really be anyone from comic books, movies, TV, novels, etc. In Season 1, I’ll be focusing on comic book characters, primarily superheroes. So expect to see me Ship people from DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and more.

Why is the series called I Ship It? The term to “Ship” two people has been around for a little while and is basically short for “relationship”. Urban dictionary defines “shipping” as:

A term used to describe fan fictions that take previously created characters and put them as a pair. It usually refers to romantic relationships, but it can refer platonic ones as well. (Just think of “shipping” as short for “relationSHIP”.)

So, while Superman and Wonder Woman have been together at times in comic books, I’ll focus on some pairings that might not have been as obvious or provided enough development. I’ll also provide some pairings that you may have never considered.

I Ship It Logo

I Ship It is going to be a weekly web series via The Grid Daily’s YouTube channel. New episodes will go out on Tuesdays with the first one being February 9th. Be sure to head over to our YouTube page and subscribe to you’ll be the first to know when new episodes premiere.  Haven’t subscribed yet? You can do so here.

Our YouTube page includes lots of other great videos like unboxings of subscription boxes like the Funko Marvel Collector Corps and Smuggler’s Bounty, as well as our Twitch video game broadcasts.

I Ship Batman and Zatanna

That’s it for now. Please join me on Tuesday for our first episode where I match up Batman and Zatanna from DC Comics. And don’t forget to comment with suggestions of couples you’d like to see Shipped!
