Assembled Extra: Geoff Boucher Launches Hero Nation

The announcement from host/publisher Deadline Hollywood can be found here, along with Boucher's resume as a superhero-focused on-line newsman. Looks like this gig will be about film/TV media versions of superhero and related genre stories, which doesn't look like a source that will ever be exhausted. Good look to Mr. Boucher!
