Ink Tank #15: Getting Some ‘Powers’

Max and Alex return to discuss the TV version of “Powers,” a Vixen series and happenings in the “Arrow”-verse.



Happy 2015, True Believers! Welcome to the first proper Ink Tank of the new year, and what a new year it is! A mountain of awesome announcements piled up over the break, and we here on Ink Tank are doing our utmost to keep cool while riding this wave of nerdiness. Here’s just a few of the triumphant topics we’ll be covering:

  • Star Trek 3 is going to be co-written by Montgomery Scott himself, Simon Pegg! Does the Spaced star have what it takes to write the tales of the enterprise?
  • Sony has set a release date for its PlayStation Exclusive adaptation of the Brian Michael Bendis novel Powers. What do our heroes think of Sony’s attempt at original programming?
  • Two actors have jumped ship on Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad. Why are they doing this and who can replace them?
  • Bill Murray, obviously. Dude can do anything.
  • There’s a Vixen animated series joining the Arrow/Flash universe! Could this finally turn things around for superhero animation?
  • The Arrow/Flash discussion you crave. Does Alex approve of the newly-introduced Rogues? What did our heroes think of the follow-up to Arrow’s explosive midseason closer? Find out below!

That’s it for this week, folks! But worry not, we’ll be back next week to throw more of that comic book goodness right at your face. And with Justice League: Throne of Atlantis on the way next week, 2015 is just getting better and better! See you all then!!

Note: The following podcast contains EXPLICIT language and discussion of Arrow and The Flash. SPOILER ALERT!

Trade of the Week: Powers Vol 1: Who Killed Retro Girl? by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Michael Avon Oeming. Read the novel that inspired the latest comic-to-TV adaptation! See the series that made superhero crime stories a thing — way before Gotham ever existed!

Do you think Simon Pegg is a good choice for “Trek”? Is “Powers” Sony’s ticket to glory? Talk amongst yourselves in the letters column below or email us at
