News From Around the Nerd

The Big news for this week is that the title for the next installment of the Transformers series was announced. for the second trilogy we are entering, THE AGE OF EXTINCTION! (Dramatic right!) We have left the Shia Age behind and are moving onto the more mature Age of the Funky Bunch. This series is already looking to be better, just by the casting changes and the addition of a few special characters. Of course I am referring to the Dino Bots.

Before we get started you should know, this counter exists:

Now why would such a counter like this exist? Glad you asked. DC comics has been making a lot of decisions that don’t make sense to a lot of us and some that down right piss the internet off. This week was no exception with two big examples of DC doing something stupid.
Batwoman is not allowed to get married because Heroes aren’t supposed to be happy.
Stop being stupid DC! We really do want to like you, but you make it so hard for us sometimes!
