Since comic book films basically strangled the hell out of this summer, this week's recap is dedicated to all the superpowered dudes and dudettes out there, from Batman to Sharivan. We—nay, the WORLD—demand to know who your favorite superhero is, so let's talk about it after the news roundup below!
Below you'll find a bevy of hot stories, features and video posted throughout the week. But that's not all. We've also compiled a few stories we missed, so be sure to check those out, as well.
