Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

You've got Doomsday Clock, which is establishing the current DCU as screwed over by Dr. Manhattan and Geoff Johns using Manhattan to basically explain his own mixed feelings about dramatically altering Superman and the DCU. The Dr. Manhattan redesign that was a little too on the nose. http://diceta...

Re: Batgirl

-Barbara Gordon really turned out great. As the second Batgirl (the first- created mainly so Batman & Robin wouldn't look so gay- was Bette Kane, created in the 1950s), she was probably more famous for being played by the Uber-Goddess Yvonne Craig in the 1960s TV series, but she got some play in th...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Scarecrow! Riddler! Robin! Phantasm! Roxy Rocket!)

I've just read that the Phantasm is being introduced in the comics. What's your thoughts on the 2004 'The Batman' animated series. Oddly, the Phantasm was introduced in the comics, sort of. In the "Batman: Year Two" story (Detective 575-78. 1987) Batman fights a murderous vigilante called the Reape...

THE MAD HATTER (Jervis Tetch) Created By: Bob Kane & Bill Finger First Appearance: Batman #49 (Oct. 1948) -Geez, I had absolutely no idea that the Hatter debuted so early on. Mad Hatter was a really odd case. He was a one off villain back in 1948. His real name wasn't even given. In fact, he was a ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Catwoman! The Joker! Harley Quinn! Poison Ivy!)

What about Harley's expertise in singing early 80s songs ? Ehhhhhhhhhhhh... she didn't really SING it that well. It's just a kick-ass song. Though that clip is amazeballs- Batman being caught doing "normal people things" is great, and Nightwing's teasing, then rocking out, is perfect. I think her "...

Re: Musings of a Psycho Math Teacher

Disallowing the use of the Extra Mass extra on a power where each rank explicitly indicates how much mass can be affected only makes sense. Otherwise, it's doing an end-run around the fact that each rank of the power is supposed to have a different cost depending on circumstance.

I thought that the two fairly recent 60s Batman based animated movies, Return of the Caped Crusaders and Batman vs. Two-Face (sadly, the latter came out after Adam West's passing) were great, as well.
Of course, they were based on a classic.

I don't know, back in the 70s (yeah, I'm old), she was pretty hot, even her face.
