Scott Lobdell is currently writing multiple titles for DC Comics and, to put it kindly, he’s not been my favorite writer of the New 52.  If you’ve read my previous posts “Superman Is A Star And Should Be Written By One” and  “Tim Drake Was Never Robin?

10 DC Properties Warner Bros. Should Focus On Other Than The Metal Men.

So according to the internets, Barry Sonnenfeld is going to helm the film version of The Metal Men.  In case you don’t know, The Metal Men are the creation of Dr. Will Magnus who, thanks to his “responsometers” imbued his creations with various (and often wacky) personalities.  The Metal Men (and Woman) have special abilities derived from the alloys (or ya know…metals) they are made from.  Sooooo Gold can stretch super far, Lead can stop harmful radiation, and so on and so forth.  Here’s the wiki if you care to know the rest.  The bottom line is they are a crazy bunch of super robots and are a lot of fun to read.  When they actually have a comic book that is.
