? IDW is doing a whole slew of Mars Attacks one-shots, the most relevant here being Mars Attacks the Transformers. Weird. (Via CBR)
? After airing two whole episodes of Young Justice and presumably Green Lantern, Cartoon Network has yanked off the entire DC Nation block and said it’ll be back in January. CN announced this on Twitter, mere hours before new episodes were set to air — my DVR certainly thought so. I don’t know what the problem is here, but someone done fucked up.

? Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man has a premiere date of November 6th, 2015. Guess he really has to make it now. (Via Spinoff)

? Here’s new Robocop’s new bike. Seems kind of KITT-ish to me.

? DC will release a seven-figure-set of the Justice League in their New 52 high-collared duds, if that’s what you’ve been waiting for. (Via ToysREvil)
? Someone’s bringing back the old Power Lords toyline, unless they’re not, because they’re lying. I’ll keep you posted. (Via Poe Ghostal)
? Entertainment Weekly has the first clip from the Science Channel’s Firefly reunion special, and they’re not sharing because they’re bastards. Go watch it here

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
