The iron man stared into the CNN and ESPN cameras yesterday afternoon and said he had a little announcement. "I'm going to try and play basketball professionally," Cal Ripken said. "I'm leaving baseball as of now. " The iron man looked around to see if the cameras were whirring and the pens were writing. "Just kidding," Cal Ripken said. The iron man checked into the Orioles' spring-training camp yesterday to begin the season that will define his career. Off in the distance - five months in the distance - lies the ghost of Lou Gehrig.

While the old saying "you can't judge a book by its cover" is wise advice, the cover of "World War Hulk" No. 5 is an exception. The stunning David Finch cover has the Hulk engaged in a literal slobberknocker with the Sentry. The pages inside show the Hulk and the Sentry trading blow after blow on page after page in one of the more epic fights you will ever read. For the uninitiated, "World War Hulk" has dealt with the Hulk returning to Earth after being tricked into exile by heroes including Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, Doctor Strange and Black Bolt.

Too many villains. Too many superhero suits. There's no denying that Iron Man 2 is just too too. At its best, it's shaggily enjoyable and enjoyably shaggy. It's like steroids on steroids with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, disarming arms industrialist, tossing off one-liners like comic grenades. Stark sees no conflict in taking government subsidies while retaining private ownership of bleeding-edge weaponry. Nor does IM2 , directed by Jon Favreau and written by Justin Theroux ( Tropic Thunder )

It's a superhero smackdown! From that old-school adventurer Indiana Jones to the New Age burnout Hancock, this summer the multiplex will look a lot like the muscleplex. Batman, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and Speed Racer are each in the fight to dominate evil - and the box office. The superheroines of summer? Nowhere to be found. The summer movies divide between the guy individualists out to save the world and gal collectives there to save each other. In the sisterhood of Sex and the City: The Movie and that of the Traveling Pants, female friendship rules.

Tony Stark, a most dissolute and disarming arms manufacturer, builds flamethrowers in the basement. For kicks. The bucks aren't bad, either. Sporting wit (and goatee) sharp as a survival knife, Robert Downey Jr. is the billionaire bon vivant in Iron Man, the fast, funny and deliriously entertaining flick based on Marvel Comics' self-made superhero. Unlike genetic and environmental supers, this weapons whiz gives himself superpowers. A hard-drinking inventor/playboy/businessman, Tony is a hybrid of Howard Hughes and Hugh Hefner, 1950s fantasy figures gene-spliced for 2008.

A lot of times, when comic companies decide to do books detailing the pasts of a famous villains like Doctor Doom or Lex Luthor, they actually diminish the characters by taking away mystery and adding familiarity and sympathy. An exceptional exception to this rule has just hit shelves in the form of "Highlander Origins: The Kurgan" No. 1, the beginning of a two-issue miniseries that is shaping up as a true event. The Kurgan was hero Connor MacLeod's deadliest foe in the original "Highlander" film.

The 'Iron Man' role that got away "It was the surprise of a lifetime," said the Hollywood star. And boy, was he not liking it. The star is Terrence Howard, the actor/musician with Philly-area roots. Howard was in Iron Man, the Robert Downey Jr. summer blockbuster about war and violence and being real strong and flying about and stuff. Howard played Jim Rhodes. In the sequel, Rhodes has the cool alter ego of the superhero War Machine. But surprise! According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio decided, no, we want Don Cheadle instead.
