Video Games: F.E.A.R., Superman

All of the recent buzz for Xbox 360 fans has surrounded Gears of War, the jaw-dropper that gave the console its first solid must-have. A little lost in all the hubbub was F.E.A.R., a title that will reward Gears devotees, any fan of the first-person shooter and everyone who appreciates a good scare.

F.E.AR. is one of the most frightening and thrilling shooters on the market. Hands down. Its developers have found ingenious ways to make shadows appear spooky, enemies appear sinister and the game to become a heart-pounding thrill ride. If you don't believe me, pop in the game, turn off the lights, turn up the sound, and see how long before your living daylights are sitting beside you on the couch.

The game is an adaptation, or port, of the successful version of the game previously released for the PC. In F.E.A.R., you play a member of an elite military group, First Encounter Assault Recon team, who is inserted to hunt down a military commander of a secret army of cloned soldiers gone haywire. Truth be told, all that doesn't matter, since you won't have much time to dwell on plot.

For the most part, you'll be engaged in one of numerous fast and furious gunfights, some of the most engrossing combat to be found in a first-person console shooter. You will need every weapon from the game's arsenal -- pistol, shotgun, assault rifle and rocket launcher -- to dispatch your enemies. And you'll frequently have to employ F.E.A.R.'s version of bullet-time.

NYC, Trump, Disney reward "Subway Superman"



NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New Yorker dubbed "Subway Superman" received the city's highest civic award on Thursday after pinning down a stricken stranger on subway tracks just enough to allow an oncoming train to run over the top of them.

Wesley Autrey, 50, jumped onto the subway tracks at a station in Manhattan's Harlem neighborhood on Tuesday to help Cameron Hollopeter, who had suffered a seizure and fallen.

Autrey held down Hollopeter's convulsing body in the track bed as the train passed just centimeters above them. Both were uninjured, but Hollopeter, 20, remains in hospital undergoing tests to discover what caused his seizure.

Autrey, whose knitted cap was brushed with grease and dirt from the train passing overhead, played down his daring act as he accepted the Bronze Medallion -- for exceptional citizenship and outstanding achievement -- from Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

"You see somebody in distress, you help out," Autrey told a news conference, as he was flanked by his 4- and 6-year-old daughters, who had watched their father jump onto the subway tracks. "I was just in the right place at the right time."

While Bloomberg called Autrey a "true hero" and the New York Post newspaper dubbed him the "Subway Superman," the construction worker -- who went to work as normal after the incident -- said the real heroes were U.S. troops in Iraq.

Along with the civic award, Autrey was also given a year's worth of free rides on New York's subway and buses, then met with real-estate mogul Donald Trump, who gave him a $10,000 check, along with two other checks from undisclosed donors.

The Walt Disney Co. gave Autrey and his family a one-week fully paid trip to the Disney World theme park in Orlando, Fla, and tickets to the Broadway smash hit musical "The Lion King."

Subway Superman Had it all Planned?

As Jay Leno put it: "WHO in their right mind will step in front of a moving train to save somebody they don't even know? Sorry mom it ain't me try your other son."

Apparently, according to city records, Subway Superman has all his life been pulling off seemingly miraculous rescues which according to noted statistician Bill O'Reilly CANNOT ring true according to the Factor.

Wesley Autrey (Subway Superman) according to legend once, at age 8 single handedly pulled his mother, father, 2 sisters AND the Pope from their Queens home fully a'blaze. What the Pope was doing there nobody knows but Subway Superman rescued him. Did Subway Superman SET that fire? Judith Reagan wants to know.

Ex Harper/Colins employee Judith Reagan, author of OJ Simson's "IF I DID IT" biography now proposes in her new book the theory that Subway Superman CREATES his own scenarios so that he can RESCUE his victims from scenerio's he himself created. Subway Superman spoke with Larry King on last night's show ..

KING -> So Superman. Judith Reagan says that YOU pushed that man in front of the subway so that you could rescue him. True or not.

SUBWAY SUPERMAN -> False Larry. It wasn't so much a PUSH as more of a shove. I rescued him though that's what counts. Get's me my ratings. I'm up to 4.5 stars now.

New York Mayor Bloomberg has declared Sunday as "Subway Superman Day" meaning anybody in New York with loose change in their pockets by city ordinance must transfer said change to Subway Superman's BUCKET conveniently located in front of his new 4800 square foot home at 18393 Main.

"The man fell to the tracks, all I did was save him" Subway Superman told reporters from his home before having to rescue THEM from the bucket of flaming tar that just happened to fall from his roof as the reporters were filming.

Unbelievable Superman News

FilmForce has learned that the script pages now being used to audition actors for the title role in director Bryan Singer's forthcoming Superman movie are not from either J.J. Abrams' old draft or from the new script being penned by Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty. Instead, the casting directors auditioning contenders for the next Man of Steel are using scenes from 1978's Superman: The Movie.

The eight-page "sides" we were able to see include three scenes from Richard Donner's film. Two are "Clark Kent" scenes while the last one is a "Superman" one. The first is the scene when Clark Kent meets Perry White and Lois Lane on his first day of work at The Daily Planet.

The second scene is later that day when Clark and Lois are exiting the Planet and he uses the word "swell." The last scene is the interview between Lois Lane and Superman in her penthouse apartment. It ends right before he takes her on their nighttime flight over Metropolis.

By the way, FilmForce has also confirmed that Superman is secretly code-named Unbelievable.

Top comics of 2006 superman

It's been quite a year for the comic book industry. From underachievers (DC's "Blue Beetle") to sleeper hits (Marvel's "Civil War: Frontline") we take a look back at the highlights and low points of 2006 and what is shaping up for 2007.
Forgotten hero Moon Knight returns as a man so troubled by his past that his mind has fractured into several different personalities.

Charlie Huston's tightly-knitted scripts and David Finch's art give the character the perfect edge as a dark and violent anti-hero struggling with his sanity.

Moon Knight has always been criticized as Marvel's answer to Batman. But with the new series, Moon Knight's finally stepped out of the bat's shadow.

Best single issue: "New Avengers No. 22"

For years Brian Michael Bendis has been telling people how cool Luke Cage (Power Man) is. In every book Bendis has written for Marvel, Cage has shown up but has never really been a stand-out character.

This is the issue that changed all that.

On the eve of Marvel's "Civil War," Cage is approached by agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. who ask if he's going to register.

He refuses and sends his wife and child to Canada to hide while he waits in his apartment for the agents to return and arrest him.

He makes what he thinks is his final stand against the establishment and erases any doubt that Cage (Power Man) is a hero that's not to be taken lightly.

Best writer: Ed Brubaker

From "Daredevil" to "Captain America" to "Uncanny X-Men," Ed Brubaker has quickly become Marvel's go-to writer.

In 2006, Brubaker was tapped to follow Bendis' applauded run on "Daredevil." The transition between writes was flawless and the book continues to be one of Marvel's finest.

Brubaker also did the unthinkable on "Uncanny X-Men" -- he resuscitated the X-Men after years of weak and forgettable storylines.

And in "Captain America" he brought back Captain America's sidekick Bucky from the dead and made "Winter Soldier" one of the best Captain America stories in years and a must-read for any comic book fan.

Best artist: J.H. Williams III

"7 Solders of Victory" one-shot artist J.H. Williams shows more versatility in one issue than most artists show in a career.

Williams' style ranges from Jack Kirby to Jim Lee and everyone in-between. He's able to change styles on each page and even per panel. Most amazing is how his art matches the individual artist from each of the "Soldiers" one shots.

Best Event: (tie) "Infinity Crisis" (DC) / "Civil War" (Marvel)

Both DC and Marvel pulled out all the stops this year with world-shattering events likely to have some serious long-term repercussions.

Before "Infinity Crisis," the heroes of the DC universe were already battered and beaten, both mentally and physically. The Justice League had disbanded while DC's "Big Three" -- Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman -- were at odds and not speaking to each other.
