There's nothing quite like the cognitive dissonance dog owners every time they take their pooch out to, uh… eliminate. On one hand, you're proud of your pup — especially if you house trained it yourself — for doing its thing outside. On the other hand "its thing" is totally pooping. It's weird, man. That's why it's a relief (HAW!) to see that Superman deals with the same disparity when he takes Krypto on a walk to unleash his sheesh in Brett Underhill's animated short, Super Man's Best Friend. As described by Underhill, "After a long day working two jobs, Superman's duties never seem to end when Krypto decides that this must be the place." In this short, however, something totally unexpected happens when Krypto finds just the right spot to unload. You can catch Krypto's adventures in elimination after the cut. Just be warned: It's a wonderfully gross and NSFW.

(Did you get the "Superman I"/Gene Hackman homage? If you did kudos to you Superfan!)
Things are only heating up on Cartoon Network’sYoung Justice, as series producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti lay down the groundwork for the season two twenty-episode story arc “Invasion.” That storyline will have the team as well as numerous other DC heroes and villains involved (approximately 120 of them, in fact) as Earth is threatened by several alien species. The network has released a three minute clip that includes highlights from recent episodes, with a glimpse ahead to more of season one and, especially, “Invasion.”
The Man Of Steel comes face-to-face with powerful villains, daunting rivals and a society more interested in retribution than justice when a new, less-ethical breed of super hero arrives in Metropolis in Superman Versus The Elite, the next entry in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies.

Animation, the all-new, PG-13 rated film arrives June 12, 2012 from Warner Home Video as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP) and DVD ($19.98 SRP), On Demand and for Download.
