Orphans blasts readers into the heart of our galaxy alongside William Ackerson, a man lost in space on a quest to find the source of his uncanny abilities. As gravity waves ripple across reality, warping time and space, he meets the Orphans. They are each the last of their kind, all their kin having been wiped out by the alien Hive: Little Boy, their giant childlike leader; Haze, a caustic creature of pure vapor; Rascal, a self-loathing zealot with dark secrets; and Critter, a being that’s equal parts monster and puppy. 

 

 

This ragtag group find themselves in over their heads when their space-heist is hijacked. They have a stowaway with her own agenda: Samsi, the fearsome survivor of a civilization that once ruled the galaxy. Orphans is a fast-paced, intergalactic treasure hunt that explodes the Alliances universe into the cosmos. It introduces an extraordinary band of lone survivors, that must become a family to save the very fabric of reality.

Synopsis

In the village of Gavaldon, two misfits and best friends, Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso) and Agatha (Sofia Wylie), share the unlikeliest of bonds. Sophie, a golden-haired seamstress, dreams of escaping her dreary life to become a princess, while Agatha, with her grim aesthetic and offbeat mother, has the makings of a real witch. One night under a blood red moon, a powerful force sweeps them away to the School for Good and Evil — where the true stories behind every great fairy tale begin. Yet something is amiss from the start: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, run by the glamourous and acid-tongued Lady Lesso (Charlize Theron), and Agatha in the School for Good, overseen by the sunny and kind Professor Dovey (Kerry Washington). As if navigating classes with the offspring of the Wicked Witch (Freya Parks), Captain Hook (Earl Cave), and the dashing son of King Arthur (Jamie Flatters) wasn’t hard enough, according to the Schoolmaster (Laurence Fishburne), only true love’s kiss can change the rules and send the girls to their rightful schools and destiny. But when a dark and dangerous figure (Kit Young) with mysterious ties to Sophie reemerges and threatens to destroy the school and the world beyond entirely — the only way to a happy ending is to survive their real life fairytale first.

‘Wonder Man’ Is Coming To Life in A Brand New Marvel Series

 ‘Wonder Man’ Is Coming To Life in A Brand New Marvel Series

We here at Widescreen Comic Review don't profess any great knowledge of the vast number of characters in the Marvel-verse, so the discovery that Destin Daniel Cretton and Andrew Guest have plans in the works to create a live-action series for a little known character named ‘Wonder Man’ is a wonder to us. In fact, we said, “Wonder … Who?”

Here is the probable answer. In 1978 and according to the late Stan Lee, "You know, years ago we brought out ‘Wonder Man’, and DC Comics sued us because they had ‘Wonder Woman’, and... I said okay, I'll discontinue ‘Wonder Man’.

So that’s it. Buried but apparently not forgotten, ‘Wonder Man’ has been around since 1964. His real name is Simon Williams and he is a villain turned hero. He has prior ties with Tony Stark in the munitions business to which Stark was his main competition.
