Oh. My. God. 
I need DC Super Hero Girls version of Lobo as a doll yesterday. How cute is he? So cute! Lobo, Green Lantern and Flash need to be dolls, come on boy doll gods, don’t fail me like you did with beautiful Seth Ptolemy!!!

So it looks like Sinestro is the headmaster of Korugar Academy, and some of their students include Blackfire, Lobo (bae), Mongal, Bleez, Maxima.

One thing that I noticed was Lashina was in the furies in the yearbook, but she was not in the actual special if i remember correctly…so maybe’ll we’ll the furies again in the future. There were other villains like Solomon Grundy, King Shark, Lion Mane too.

Two new characters that I don’t recall being on the series just yet are El Diablo and Silver Banshee! They also showed professor June Moon (Enchantress) as a teacher for art of all things. A lot of the current backgrounders got pages like Thunder, Lightning, Ravager, Shazam (Mary Marvel). I was hoping to see Cheshire, Zatanna, Black Canary, and Vixen, but no luck just yet…maybe in the future! Hopefully they haven’t graduated yet…but maybe? I think Black Canary could be.

The DC Super Hero Girls yearbook has a lot of neat info and tidbits, of course these character reveals were amazing and my personal favorites! I definitely recommend the dc super hero girls yearbook for any fans! 

Thoughts on those potential new manufacturers:


DODGE:

Sergio Marchionne is full of it, so Dodge could return or could not. He’s been looking to boost Chrysler’s nameplate in hopes of selling it off to someone. GM balked at the opportunity, but VW called his bluff last week. Who knows what Dodge will do, but I honestly wouldn’t count on them returning based solely on Marchionne’s history. Still, it would be cool to see them return. They killed the Viper and the Viper racing program, so perhaps they might be looking to drop some cash in NASCAR again. Outside of the Marchionne variable, what team would become the Dodge factory team? They made a play for Childress back in ‘12, but Childress declined.


VW/Audi:

VW was looking to get into NASCAR back in '10, going so far as repeated meetings with NASCAR brass and visits to several races. They walked away and later announced plans to return to F1, which was axed by Dieselgate. Dieselgate also took down Audi’s motorsports program. It would make for good public relations if Audi/VW made a push into NASCAR. Still, it’s a long shot.

Buick:

This one makes a lot of sense. They could benefit from the exposure, as they’ve quietly been making a comeback in the industry. 1: They have a checkered history in NASCAR, winning three championships in a row in the early '80s. 2: They could bring back the Grand National nameplate to much fanfare from the Old Guard. 3: A Buick program would have immediate access to Chevy’s R&D, chassis, and engine. It would be pretty easy for Buick to slide back in and be accepted into the sport. The question is, which currently floundering team would Buick sink it’s $ into as their flagship? Answer: Roush-Fenway. Jack wants out, but he’s not going to go cheap or quietly. Buick could make him an offer he can’t refuse.

Nissan:

They could dip their toes into NASCAR by running the Titan. Truck sales have been lagging, and the standard Titan is no slouch. If the program went well, they could expand into Xfinity and Cup with the Altima and Maxima to combat rival Toyota on American soil. I can’t see longtime fans accepting Nissan any easier than they did Toyota, so it probably wouldn’t go over too well.

Thoughts?

No nos contentamos con la vida que tenemos en nosotros y en nuestro propio ser; queremos vivir, en la idea de los demás, una vida imaginaria, y por ello cultivamos con afán la apariencia. Trabajamos innecesariamente en embellecer y conservar nuestro ser imaginario y descuidamos el verdadero (…).
