Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

If you ever wanted to see Batman and Superman pound the crap out of everything that moves, then this is the movie for you. I only have 1 question that seems to happen in every Justice League movie. How does Lex Luthor keep getting elected president? Somehow Luthor got elected and his first act as president, to make Batman and Superman fugitives.

Luthor started a superhuman employment service where they serve the US government. Any hero who refuses will be arrested. Obviously Superman would never join forces with a man who has tried to kill him countless times and Batman is Batman so he would never join up with Luthor.

Luthor puts a 1 billion dollar bounty on the duo and then the all hell breaks through. Every villain imaginable comes after them. The bad guys aren’t a problem, but the heroes that Luthor now employs are the deadliest to the duo. Captain Atom, Power Girl, Major Force, Captain Marvel and Hawkman all joined the US government and are trying to bring them in.

The problems only get worse as a meteorite is on a crash course for Earth. So besides fighting a smorgasbord of other supers, there is a meteorite on its way to kill everyone.

This was a very action packed movie that well worth the watch. The only problem I have is with Luthor getting elected….again. This is a storyline in many Justice League stories that doesn’t make any sense to me.

Besides that, loved the movie. The plot wasn’t so deep, but that was because of the constant action scenes. I give it a 4/5.

Genetically Engineered Food

This was a letter I wrote after participating in a movement to stop food from being genetically altered. It’s actually a bigger problem than you would imagine. Food processors are putting things in our food that we don’t know about. The pictures I didn’t put in the letter obviously. Just having a little bit of fun.

Dear (Not putting their name)

I must admit that I didn’t fully know what was being put into our food until I researched it for myself. Many Americans have no idea what is being put into our food and read the Nutritional Ingredient section with little to no knowledge of what all of that even means. Most people today get health tips from daytime television or know someone who can actually translate what these words mean.

Everyone knows cigarettes are bad for us, but people stupidly do it anyway. Fast food is processed food with all types of chemicals included that mostly harm the body instead of giving us the nutrients in order for a healthy meal.

So in turn we go to our local food stores and take solace in the idea that what we buy on the shelves isn’t going to harm us. Little do we know that the tiny print and unpronounceable words on the boxes hold a darker secret to them.

The idea that most of these ingredients aren’t even tested is a scary thought to conceive and we don’t know the long term effects until it is sadly too late. Top foods like corn, soy, potatoes, rice, and even some dairy products have these genetically engineered ingredients and we don’t even know about. Some products aren’t even properly labeled so that people who do research what they eat are literally eating blind.

Americans are sadly blind to this realization, but you can help unveil the truth and even save a few lives in the long term. If you can help support A1359/S91, this would help label genetically engineered foods sold in New Jersey so the public could fully know what they are consuming.

I do hope my words do not fall upon deaf ears and that you can help support the cause that Food & Water Watch has started.

Sincerely,

Joe Reyes
