The last episode of the “Superman: The Animated Series” ended with the episode called “Legacy” which was the episode where Superman was brain washed by his enemy to believe that his rival Darkseid adopted him as his son.
Darkseid was able to have Superman lead an army of Darkseid’s soldiers to attack Earth and take over. Here was the catch. Superman’s cousin Supergirl took over the role of guarding the citizens of Metropolis.
When Superman came to Earth to lead his soldiers to take over the Earth, he and Supergirl were taken down by a Kryptonite weapon fired by a U S soldier to take both Kryptonians out of commission.
Now comes the alternate version. Have Donna and Debi Isthmus who are my original characters who are nicknamed the Bad Girls Of The Isthmus since they spent their childhood in Portobelo Panama.
The identical twins would break into the prison where Superman and Supergirl were held captive and ready to be executed for crimes against humanity. Donna would use her “Where is the gas station?” gimmick by kayoing anyone who tried to stop them from releasing the Kryptonians.
Debi would use her power of being invisible would enter the room where Supergirl is a prisoner under the powers of a red light that weakens her. Debi would turn visible and tell Supergirl in a Spanish accent “Kid, it is time to clear the air. Here goes nothing as she uses a karate chop to break Supergirl’s bonds.
Then Donna would find Superman in a room that is surrounded by a red light that weakens him and tells him in the same Spanish accent “Kid, it is time to take care of business.” The four heroes would go to where Darkseid lives and all of them would beat up the villain so bad that he would give up ruling his planet. He would never attack Earth again.
The heroes return to Metropolis to a huge heroes welcome from the media and even Lex Luthor would admit that having to deal with Superman as the strongman who watches the people of Metropolis as their guardian angel is better than having a rogue Kryptonian.
The four heroes would tell the people of Metropolis “Are you ready to sing with us our hit song ‘When The Saints Come Marching In.’?” The crowd would react with a high pitched “Yes.” and the heroes would sing that song as the crowd would be dancing in the streets of Metropolis as the show comes to an end. Take that Warner Brothers.

The sports world today was shocked to learn about the death of former Philadelphia Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Roy “Doc” Haladay who perished in a single engine plane crash near the city of St. Petersburg Florida on Tuesday afternoon after the plane he was piloting crashed into the Gulf Of Mexico.
Haladay who pitched 16 seasons in the Major Leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies before he left the game after the 2013 Major League Baseball season.
Haladay was 40 years of age at the time of his passing. Haladay is one of two pitchers in the Major Leagues who has pitched a no-hitter in a postseason game. Haladay pitched his no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in the 2010 National League Divisional Championships.
The only other pitcher who has pitched a perfect game is former New York Yankees pitcher Don Larsen who pitched a perfect game in the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.
It is a shame that Haladay who loved his family and was a person who had good character died at the age of 40 following his passion of flying airplanes. Doc will be missed beyond words by his former teammates and his family. Rest in peace Doc.
Actress Gal Gadot who plays the female heroine character Wonder Woman has gone on record that if any male wants to make love to her super heroine character like the recent sex scandals coming from Hollywood, she has some advice. Do not do it.
I do remember that the Wonder Woman character that I read in the comic books around the mid 1970s that if any male had a weapon on his hands in an attempt to harm her physically she would tell the male attacker something like paraphrasing “So carrying a weapon makes you think that you are ten feet tall. Let me cut you down to size.”
What makes me laugh is that the evolution of Wonder Woman is that since she was raised in an island that was all women she could be a lesbian.
But since she in the era of comic books in the 1970s she fell in love with Steve Trevor. Maybe I am old fashioned but I always like my super heroes who are female to be straighter than a Green Arrow.
Now I am sure that anyone does mess around with Gal Gadot in real life in an attempt to harm her. She will do what the lyrics of the Beatles song “The Ballad Of Bungalo Bill” which is “And Captain Marvel punched him between the eyes.” Zap!
But then again the same could be said of Power Girl and Black Canary. Of course my original characters who are preteens Donna and Debi Moreno and their close friend Gabrielle “D D” Squirrel would not allow any male to make love to them either.
What they would do is sing the song “Let Me Try Again.” and the male attacker would say “Donna, Debbie and Dee Dee as he bows down to them.
The Wonder Woman movie was a huge hit movie for Warner Brothers Studios that stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
The satire version of the movie’s ending would be that when Wonder Woman had a chat with Batman on her computer that she was ready to take the lead for female heroes worldwide would be that all of the sudden out of the blue, my original characters Donna and Debi Isthmus who are identical twins along with their close family friend Panama Squirrel who is not related to Squirrel Girl in unison “Eh…what’s up Wonder Woman? Can you use the Lexicon Bandits as your assistants?”
Could you see the facial reaction of Wonder Woman who would turn white as a ghost when she sees two identical twins and a Black Power Girl staring at her with cold stares that would melt lead?
One thing is for certain. I do miss the super hero movies that had happy endings like the late Chris Reeve version of Superman.
I am old enough to remember when the ABC Network would bring on weekends a show called “ABC’s Wide World Of Sports” which showed sporting events like track and field, gymnastics, diving, swimming and other sports that are only seen in the Summer Olympics.
Fast forward to today where there a few cable channels like ESPN and Fox Sports 1 carry sports like soccer, American football, basketball and auto racing.
What really ticks me off is that ESPN during the daytime programs only carry talk or debate shows like “First Take.” and “Sports Center” while Fox Sports 1 carries shows like “Undisputed” and “Colin Cowherd”
Come on you meat heads, if I want to see talk shows on a sports network that have bumper music by rap and hip hop artists, I would have to be a masochist to watch sports reporters that have never played a professional sport in the life pointing fingers at the losing team or player.
Give me a break. All you sports reporters do when you insult a player or team for not winning a championship, you make fools of yourselves.
Now do me a favor and play some rock and roll music on your bumper music on Fox Sports 1 and ESPN to get the older audience to tune in to your shows.
And by the way, bring some more diving even it is from Acapulco Mexico or even some triathlons that feature male and female Iron Men and Iron Women in competition instead of shoving the NBA and NFL down my throat.
Having the television off and listening to rock and roll music is music to my ears. How about you?
One of my favorite baseball teams I like is the Houston Astros since my relatives and myself went to their former home stadium the Astrodome for watching a baseball game versus the St. Louis Cardinals in 1979.
The last two World Series featured teams that wanted to end their drought like the Chicago Cubs winning the 2016 World Series after a drought of 108 years.
In the 2017 World Series the Houston Astros ended their drought of 56 years of not winning a World Series title since they started playing baseball in 1962 the same year as the New York Mets which both teams were expansion teams.
Of course the Mets won their first World Series title in 1969 and in 1986. The Astros fans who have been through so much heartbreak like the 2005 World Series when the Chicago White Sox ended their 87 year drought by beating the Astros in four games.
This year the dream match between the Los Angeles Dodgers versus the Houston Astros in the 2017 World Series came to fruition. Even though many of the sports reporters were rooting for the Dodgers to win the final game of the 2017 World Series since the Astros had a hard time winning on the road during the playoffs, the Astros proved to the sports world they had the tools to beat their rivals in the final game of the 2017 World Series by beating the Dodgers by a final score of 5-1.
Now that the Astros won their first World Series, the sports reporters are calling them a dynasty since they do not have any free agents on their key players. Time will tell if the Astros will become a dynasty or will another team win the 2018 World Series.
Nevertheless in the words of the late National Football League narrator John Facenda “The long wait is over.” Congratulations to the Houston Astros for rewarding your fans who went through a very difficult year with Hurricane Harvey.
In my humble opinion after the death of Caesar The Ape at the end of the “War For The Planet Of The Apes” should be the end of the Planet Of The Apes movie trilogy.
My reason is that since all of the humanoids I mean mankind have passed away at the end of “War For The Planet Of The Apes” or I call it “Snore For The Planet Of The Apes” is simply if there are no humans for the apes to deal with, why have a movie with a cast of just apes?
It would not be any fun for the movie audience for the remaining apes to have the planet Earth for themselves without them working with humans.
But then again maybe the summer and now fall slump in theaters sales this year will wake up the Hollywood studios to make movies with positive messages and happy endings instead of tragic endings of the main characters.
