Clarisse

Age: Age 14

Kingdom: Castillia.

Shy but loyal, Clarisse is the perfect best friend. She’s always ready to help out her friends and is good at keeping secrets. (Especially Zara’s) Clarisse is also clever and can come up with clever solutions at a snap of the finger. Which comes in handy during a fight with giant robots. When she’s not covering for Zara, Clarisse enjoys drawing and painting.

Wheeler copy

Wheeler

Wheeler is a Decimator who is sick of the war he’s engaged in with the Centurions. Coming off the assembly line smaller then his fellow Decimators made Wheeler less effective in combat so the Decimator Warlord Tyrannis made him his whipping bot. Sick of Tyrannis’ cruelty Wheeler runs away to the Beyond (or to humans, the Forbidden Woods).

Wheeler gets turned into a robot dragon when he hears Zara’s song. He makes a deal to be her animal for the Midsummer Recital if she’ll change him back. Zara agrees and Wheeler makes his first friend. However, things don’t go as planned. And Tyrannis hates defectors.

Zara:

Age: 13

Kingdom: Tanglewylde

Zara is a bright, spirited, thirteen-year-old girl with red hair and brown eyes. Zara is a daydreamer and go getter always leaves an impression on people with her charming but stubborn personality. Zara idolizes her ancestor Queen Kyra, who saved the five kingdoms of Harmonia during the “Days of Fire” as the last dragon rider. This, along with a desire to upstage her fellow princesses, is she journeys to the Forbidden Woods to find a baby dragon for the Midsummer Recital.

There she meets Wheeler and discovers a destiny that will make her just as important (perhaps greater) then her ancestor, Kyra.

Author’s note: I do not know the intricacies of Hollywood contract negotiations. And I’m aware that every case is unique.  This article is an opinion based what I see as a logical chain of events. If you have knowledge of Hollywood contract negotiations, feel free to leave a comment.

 

I read there’s a petition to have Zack Snyder fired as director of Justice League. While I agree that he doesn’t understand Superman, echo the sentiments many share of Batman vs. Superman, and am pro-people expressing themselves, I’m going to give the petitioners a dose of reality. (And this applies to super-hero casting as well) Your petition doesn’t matter.

Why? Because if Zack Snyder is announced as director of Justice League it means he’s under contract. That means he cannot be fired or replaced unless he breaks that contract.

Also, Zack Snyder has an agent. Zack Snyder’s agent reviews his contracts before he signs them. Do you really believe that Zack Snyder’s agent would let him sign a contract where Internet outrage was a firing offense? If he’s a good agent, definitely not.

If you want to protest Zack Snyder’s vision, don’t buy a ticket. That’s the only thing you can do. Because unless he breaks his contract or decides he wants out, we’re stuck with him. To paraphrase Jay Sherman, if you think Zack Snyder’s vision stinks, ” just don’t go” because in the end that is all you can do.

Jem03_cvr-MOCKONLY

One of the most hyped releases of 2015 is IDW’s revival of the popular 80’s animated series, Jem and the Holograms. Created by Writer Christy Marx, Hasbro, and Sunbow Productions, the producers of Transformers, GI Joe, and My Little Pony, Jem told the story of a young music executive named Jerrica who moonlighted as the pop star Jem and her struggle to keep control of Starlight Music out of the hands of her enemies. The show was a hit but went into dormancy for over twenty years.

But, nostalgia is powerful and you can’t keep a good series on the shelf. Jem is back, with a live action movie on the way and a brand new comic book. I talked to Jem comic book writer Kelly Thompson about Jem’s lasting appeal and why you should check out IDW’s new comic book.  (more…)

Warning: Opinion

For people who don’t like bullies, comic fans like to bully. Over the weekend, J. Scott Campbell and Erik Larsen voiced their opinion on super hero costumes being redesigned. Specifically, Wonder Woman’s. Their comments set off a firestorm. Some of it was polite, specifically when it was creator debating creator. But some of the comments from fans were condescending, childish, and so disrespectful that Mr. Larsen decided to leave Twitter. (more…)

It’s been awhile since I’ve written a wrestling post. But this merits attention. When I started this blog a few years back, to amuse myself and hone my writing skills I did a fantasy booking scenario where Sting came to WWE.

I laid out on a week-to-week basis, everything that would’ve been done had Sting become a full-time member of WWE’s roster. Was it good? That’s for you to decide. I consider what I did my scratching of the itch to be a WWE Writer. I still want to write wrestling, (and may in another format ;)) but if it doesn’t happen, at least I know I put my ideas out there. Then something happened.

At Survivor Series on November 23rd, Sting made his first appearance in a WWE ring. And he did it to conclude a major story. I screamed. I couldn’t believe it. The moment I dreamed of was here and it didn’t disappoint. Sting laid out Triple H, allowing Dolph Zigger to pin Seth Rollins and free the WWE Universe from the oppression of the Authority. It was perfect. Now what? (more…)
