Fire again strikes studios of filmmaker Tyler Perry

Officials are investigating a fire at filmmaker Tyler Perry’s Atlanta studios, the second blaze in the past four months at the filming complex.

The fire was reported just before 11 a.m. Monday, and there were no reports of injuries. Authorities say the fire was contained to the roof, which had been undergoing repairs at the time of the blaze.

On May 1, more than 100 firefighters battled a blaze that ripped through a simulated streetscape at the studios, sending flames about six stories into the sky.

Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin J. Cochran has said the cause of the May fire would be recorded as undetermined. Chief Cochran said the intensity of that fire consumed any evidence that would lead to a cause of ignition.

Wonder Woman, Superman a couple in new DC comic

Wonder Woman and Superman are an item, locking lips in a passionate embrace as the pair realize there’s no one out there like them.

The couple’s kiss is the culmination of a dramatic story in Justice League No. 12, which marks the first full year since DC relaunched its stable of heroes with new stories, new costumes and revised origins.

DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee, who has drawn each issue of Justice League since its debut, said the canoodling in Wednesday’s issue is not a stunt or an alternate-reality smooch.

“This has been in the works for some time, and we certainly wouldn’t have pulled the trigger on it without there being great creative benefit to the liaison,” he said in an email. “Beyond the joy and sorrows of new love, there are potentially huge ramifications and dramatic ways this single relationship between these iconic characters will change the entire political and interpersonal landscape of the DC Universe.”

In the 1980s, the pair had a brief fling, but Superman went on to marry Lois Lane. They also kissed in Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight Strikes Again” a decade ago. In a 2006 epilogue to 1996’s “Kingdom Come,” the couple asks Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, to stand as godfather to their unborn child.

Since DC relaunched its characters and universe nearly a year ago, some of the origins have changed — Wonder Woman is now the daughter of Zeus — and the costumes have, too.

One aspect that did not survive the relaunch: Lois Lane’s role as Superman’s love. She’s still around, but the two have never dated, nor are they likely to.
