The Suicide Squad and Justice League Clash in a December Crossover

DC's Rebirth has only just begun, but already the two biggest teams in the DC Universe are headed for a confrontation. This December, the Suicide Squad and the Justice League won't just cross paths, they'll collide in Justice League vs Suicide Squad, a new six-issue mini-series written by Joshua Williamson and featuring art from Jason Fabok (at least for the first issue).

Muhammad Ali vs Superman Set

Muhammad Ali Takes on NECA’s Superman, Aliens, Predator and Terminators [SDCC 2016]

A lot of companies bring out the biggest surprises at San Diego Comic-Con, but you can always count on NECA to outdo itself (and most of the competition). This year was no exception, with some incredible announcements and showings like the Muhammad Ali vs Superman set and the rest of the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 1/4 scale. And that's all on top of the continuing excellence of the Aliens and Predator lines, which are digging even deeper into the Kenner classics this coming year.

We have to talk about the Neal Adams-inspired Muhammad Ali vs Superman set though. A total left-field pick for an action figure pack, but one that perfectly suits NECA's unique brand of classic cuts mixed with fan-favorite characters. The DC license is a tricky one for NECA, since most of the merchandising is handled by Mattel at the mass market level, but exceptions are made once in a great while, and they tend to work out in collector's favor. With this set, not only are we getting a throwback Superman, rendered in comic-style coloring, but also a figure of the greatest boxer of all time, a even rarer feat. Who will win? Only you can decide.

Best Cosplay Ever: Star Wars Celebration Europe (Day One)

This year's Star Wars Celebration isn't taking place in a galaxy far, far away, but for those of us traveling around the world to be there, it sure feels like it. That didn't stop some of the most devoted fans in the universe from dressing to the nines for the opening day of the annual event. One of the great things about Star Wars is how it's inspired so many fans to interpret all the great characters we know and love with their own style, or in the case of a number of clever folks, creating all-new personas set in this universe.

From the original saga, to The Force Awakens, to the animated shows, comics and beyond, these are the best Star Wars cosplays from day one of Star Wars Celebration.

Star Wars’ Black Series Convention Exclusives Feature the Light and the Dark Side

Summer is here and that means it's time for convention exclusive items. Both the bastion and the bane of many collectors, convention exclusives present us with collectibles we may otherwise never see at retail with the caveat that they'll be next to impossible to track down if you aren't actually at the show itself. Heck, sometimes you can be at the show in person and still miss out on a sweet limited item. Fortunately, Hasbro's Star Wars Black Series is offering up two exclusives this convention season which should double your odds of acquisition.

Last year, we saw the debut of the First Order Stormtrooper, as San Diego Comic-Con was the first place you could get your hands on any toys from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This year, Hasbro isn't just sticking with the latest film in the franchise, though the Force Awakens will be a part of the plan. A new Kylo Ren Pack, featuring Ben Solo's finely coiffed portrait, will be offered exclusively at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Additionally, the original trilogy will get some love in the form a an Obi-Wan Kenobi pack, which will be offered exclusively at SDCC and Fan Expo Canada.

Clementine Returns One Finger Poorer in Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Season Three

While most of the attention this week will be paid to games with a lot more pomp and circumstance, don't sleep on Telltale Games' upcoming third season of The Walking Dead. Due out later this fall, the story once again follows Clementine, now in her late teens, as she tries to survive the zombie apocalypse in southeast America. While her trademark ponytails and baseball cap return, Clementine won't be exactly the same girl we saw during The Walking Dead, Season Two. She'll be older, wiser, and minus approximately one ring finger.

Telltale delivered the first teaser trailer for the upcoming season just ahead of E3 2016's official start, giving us a glimpse into what awaits for Clementine in the years since we'd last seen her. That, and her new friend, Javier, who appears to have a few secrets of his own.

The Walking Dead: Michonne, Episode 2 – ‘Give No Shelter’ Review (PC)

Exploring the tragic and mysterious history of The Walking Dead's Michonne sounded like a great idea when Telltale Games announced its mini-series. Finally, we'd get to see things from the perspective of one of the comics' most intriguing and deadly characters. However, the first episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne was fairly rudimentary and didn't quite break narrative ground in the way we'd hoped it would. Still, with two episodes remaining, there was hope Telltale had something new to say in this world and about this character. The Walking Dead: Michonne's second episode, "Give No Shelter," manages to give a bit more insight into our protagonist's past and motivations, even if it still feels like we've been down this road before.

‘The Walking Dead: Michonne’ Gets New Trailer, But You Already Know How This Ends

Getting to learn more about Michonne has been something The Walking Dead fans have wanted for years. With Telltale Games putting her front and center for her own mini-series, we'd finally have a chance to not only get to know more about Michonne, but we'd also be in her shoes the whole time. Thought the first episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne didn't exactly open the floodgates of new details or information, there were hints of promise in Telltale's adventure. The upcoming second episode looks to ramp things up even more, and will hopefully delve a bit deeper into the sword-slinging bad-ass' motivations.

Things did not go so well for Michonne in the previous episode. After departing Alexandria while no one was paying attention, she hopped aboard Pete's ship for the south. While out searching for supplies, the group was ambushed by some not-so-nice-folks, putting Michonne's plan to search for her missing daughters on hold. This group doesn't have the best intentions, at least through Michonne's eyes, so it's not long until she scrapes together a plan to escape. Judging by the trailer for this second episode, it looks like those plans go to sh-- really quickly.

Platinum’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan Looks Radical

The worst-kept video game secret of 2016 has finally been officially announced. Platinum Games and Activision are teaming with Nickelodeon for a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game, and one with a distinct co-op bent, too. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan will see the fab four tackle perennial villains Shredder and his Foot Clan across the city they all call home. Unlike Platinum's previous '80s cartoon-turned-action game Transformers Devastation, TMNT: MiM won't have an art style that's ripped straight from the animation archives. Instead, it looks like Platinum is following the art style of IDW Publishing's current TMNT artist, Mateus Santolouco.

Platinum's got a strong history of developing exciting action games, though there have been a few misses in the company's expanding catalog. After the success of Transformers Devastation, it's easy to get caught up in hoping TMNT will be just as solid. The gameplay shown off in the trailer looks good in motion, but without being able to play it ourselves. Let's not get hung up on the possibilities of disappointment just yet though because this game is going to have Armaggon, and that's just cool enough for us right now.

Celebrate the Nuclear Apocalypse With ThreeZero’s New Fallout 4 Power Armor Figure

Until Fallout 4 came around, collectibles based on the franchise were few and far between. There were hoodies and bobbleheads, but if you wanted a vault dweller or Brotherhood of Steel action figure, your options were basically non-existent until this latest sequel arrived. Unlike previous entries, Fallout 4 brought with it a number of apparel and collectible options. Though some made it to market early enough to capture the hype and momentum of Fallout 4's release, ThreeZero's Fallout 4 Power Armor figure is going to be a little late to the party. Not that it matters all that much, because as any Fallout fan can attest, there ain't no party like a Fallout party cause a Fallout party never stops.

The T-45 Power Armor is just the first of a planned line of power suits from ThreeZero, but it being the lead-in makes sense given how prominent the "standard" suit is in the game. Previous Fallout titles all just had you get the armor and slap it on, but with Fallout 4 came the Power Armor frame. Without one, you couldn't assemble your own suit, but with one, you could customize each and every aspect to suit your particular needs. Instead of just giving us the suit all articulated, ThreeZero's gone one further and replicated the frame as well, giving you just as many options for customization as you have in the game. In theory.
