A couple goodies I’m stealing from Chris Karath:

First, Shazam! Family action figures, including Hoppy the Marvel Bunny.

Second, there’s ANIME POWER GIRL:

Um, I don’t know what to say. There are Supergirl, Batgirl, and Catwoman anime-style figures pictured at the link as well.

Anyway, go check out Chris’s post for more toy links.

Speaking of Shazam!, I read the Shazam! Monster Society of Evil #1 by Jeff Smith, and was surprised to see a return to the old “relationship” between Captain Marvel and his alter ego, Billy Batson. Specifically, treating them as two distinct entities, who refer to each other as different people, and not the “Captain Marvel is Billy in an adult’s body” thing that had been the more popular method of dealing with the character(s) over the last couple of decades. True, Smith takes it a little further, by establishing the Captain as a preexisting being that’s using Billy as a host, but I enjoyed this take and look forward to the rest of the series.

I also like the online Shazam! decoder, for use with the “secret messages” in the issue. And you can create your own coded messages, like this one: PVERM XSFIXS RH Z DRVMVI

This just in, typos and all: Eva Mendez is NOT She-Hulk:

“Nicolas Cage jokingly stated that he wants to see Eva Mendez Play She Hulk. That has suddently turned into SHE IS playing She Hulk.

Nicolas Cage made it very clear to us that their is no She Hulk Project. After he made the humorous comments, he was asked specifically what the status of a She-Hulk project is and his response, quote:

‘No, no it’s just something I came up with.'”

You people know you’d totally go see a She-Hulk movie. You can’t lie to me.
