"Legends of the Dark Mite" starts with a short segment of Catman trying to sell a rare tiger to some criminals, when Batman comes to save the day with trusty sidekick, Ace the Bathound. That's right, Ace the Bathound. This episode starts off with a segment featuring Ace the Bathound treeing Catman so he is stuck, waiting for the authorities. Just take a second, drink that in.
Ready to continue? Good.
After featuring Ace the Bathound in the beginning, it comes as no surprise that the featured guest on this episode of Brave and The Bold features that other member of Batfamily, the imp from the 5th Dimension, Batmite. Batman runs in to Batman after a scuffle with some run of the mill criminals, and Batmite intervenes and makes things harder for Batman, just so Batman can prove how awesome he is.
Batmite ultimately shows himself and the fourth wall is completely broken when he describes himself as Batman's biggest fan. Batmite wants to prove how much he adores The Caped Crusader, but this ultimately ends as obsession and criticisms of Batmite's character after he changes Batman's appearance to forms ranging from the 60's Adam West Batman, described as "too campy", to Frank Miller's interpretation of Batman, described as "too psycho" (a hilarious nod to us hardcore Batman fans) as well as making Calendar Man in to a serious villain that has the ability to destroy Gotham.
After defeating Calendar Man's evil incarnations of villainous holiday icons, Batman shows his disdain for the crazed 5th Dimension Batmite, and Batmite goes off the wall and tries to destroy The Dark Knight.
Overall, this episode definitely has stuff for the kids, but mostly has easter eggs laid out for all of the hardcore Batman fans. It breaks the fourth wall by going to a 5th Dimension comic book convention and gives reasoning for the version of Batman we see in Batman: The Brave and The Bold, features members of the Batfamily that most don't either acknowledge or appreciate, but still uses them in a clever, humorous way. Out of all episodes of Batman: Brave and the Bold, this episode and The Super-Batman of Planet X are my favorites, and I definitely suggest giving this a watch.
And if anyone out there has not seen Zebraman, check it out as well, there are a lot of references to him, as well.
Live the dream, big shot!

Next up we see Batman and Green Arrow fighting even more space criminals, when a deflected shot (care of Batman saving Green Arrow's life) creates a wormhole and Batman is transported to the planet Zur En Arrh. After crash landing, our hero faces a criminal trying to make a young boy lose his parents over a family nick-nack, Batman saves the day, but after a scuffle, we see The Batman of Zur En Arrh, and his Bat-Radia! Ultimately, we see that The Batman of Zur En Arrh lives in a world much like the Metropolis of Earth and our Batman, Bruce Wayne of Earth, has gotten a gift of super powers from changing planets.
What's that? A Batman with super powers? That's right, he's your worst nightmare.
Overall, this is easily my favorite episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, it's exciting to see the writers and producers experimenting with alternate dimensions, and specifically the Batman of Zur En Arrh, and it's absolutely amazing to see the possibility of Batman with super powers, I don't want to give too much away because I really want you to watch it, but there are some hilarious statements of Batman's opinions of Superpowers and Superman. It's priceless, absolutely priceless.
Guest stars Kevin Conroy, Clancy Brown, and Dana Delaney playing mirrors of their classic takes on Batman, Lex Luthor, and Lois Lane, respectfully, bring a much needed nod the fantastic DC animated shows of the 1990's while still completely understanding the mood of the Brave and The Bold.
Exciting, fun, and hilarious, The Super-Batman of Planet X gets the highest rating that I could ever image.

In the future, Gotham City is in its Darkest days, the first Batman has died, and his son, Damian, has taken his place. Damian Wayne is the Batman that no other Batman could be, a murdering vigilante. Commissioner Barbara Gordon is on his trail, and has a strong sense of vengeance to take out on Damian, for the murder of Batman.
In Batman #666, Damian Wayne is hot on the trail of 5 crime bosses who have been reeking havoc on Gotham City, but the ones that we are introduced to are Professor Pyg and Flamingo, but with Professor Pyg's genetic alterations on the citizens of Gotham, Damian must stop the madness, while killing some of Pyg's mutated monsters, Commissioner Gordon corners Batman, but he escapes and we learn the religious implications of the crimes that have been committed. All of these crime bosses are serving the will of the supposed son of Satan. A man who cloaks himself in the cape and cowl of a man he refers to as one of his fathers, Batman. During the fight with the self proclaimed Anti-Christ, Damian Wayne claims that he has made a pact with Satan, the survival of Gotham City in exchange for his soul.
I've read this issue before, but after reading the run of Batman & Robin featuring Dick Grayson as Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin, I appreciate this issue tenfold. Grant Morrison laid the foundation in #666 for Gotham City books for the foreseeable future. This is easily one of my favorite issues of Batman of all time, especially after the recent events in the DC Universe. And Andy Kubert is simply a legendary artist on Batman and whenever he does the pencils for any Gotham book, it is promised to be absolutely amazing, and this is no exception.
I strongly suggest anyone who has read Battle for The Cowl and Batman & Robin to go back and read #666 as soon as possible.

If the internet is the "information highway," then I just got hit by a mac truck driving down I-90-give me a high-5! Not too long ago, the wonder and magic that is DC Animated released the news that the next movie after Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths (out Tuesday 2/22/10) will be Batman: Under the Red Hood. The story is adapted from the popular Batman comics storyline from a few years back entitled "Batman: Under the Hood" written by Judd Winick and art by Doug Mahnke. The tale returned Jason Todd from the grave to the might and glory he...never...had. Yeah. But! Regardless what you might think of Jason Todd as a character, Winick and Mahnke told a very engrossing, action packed, and character driven fury of awesome as far as Batman goes. I wasn't the largest JT supporter until going back and reading Under the Hood and now I actually enjoy when JT is around. Whoda thunk?
Comic Book Movie has released an article on the new movie with interviews from Bruce Timm, Judd Winick, Bruce Greenwood (voicing Batman - known mostly for Captain Christopher Pike from the newest Star Trek movie), and Jensen Ackles (Supernatural). Here's a snippet from Bruce Timm:
“It’s simply the darkest Batman movie we’ve made yet, and that’s including Mask of the Phantasm and Return of the Joker,” offers producer Bruce Timm, who has been involved in Batman’s 2D world since the 1990s’ Batman: The Animated Series. “This is a really gritty, pretty darkly emotional story, and if it all comes together as I’m expecting it will, it’s going to be something really special.”
Well, that tells me all I needed to hear!! Mask of the Phantasm and Return of the Joker are pretty dark movies, even if they are meant for a younger audience (unless you count the unrated Return of the Joker which is definitely not meant for children). Needless, to say, I'm very excited for this movie. Be sure to check out the link at the bottom of the page to read the whole article!

Again, a great post from Alex Segura on The Source today gave us a list of all the trades and collections coming out from DC Comics for the rest of the year.
If you've been waiting for the Batman: Arkham Asylum collector's edition to come down in price, wait no longer! Our good friends over at Amazon.com are now offering said edition for $59.99 with free shipping and no tax.
Choose your system below:
With your order you also get a $5 credit on select TV shows on Amazon Video On Demand.
If you look closely at the recent interview with Warner Brothers' President Jeff Robinov you will find two very exciting movie announcements: the next Dark Knight is set, and a Wonder Woman movie might be in the cards.
Yesterday we told you about the third Nolan Batman film being in the works with brother Jonah and David Goyer on board to cowrite the script. Now the New York Times has confirmed that Batman film, and a possible movie version of our favorite Amazonian.
While interviewing director Nolan about working with Robinov they confirmed the next Batman picture and later said that Wonder Woman might be one of the next DC characters appearing on the big screen.
"He is trying not to cling to the things that have worked in the past," said Christopher Nolan, who directed "The Dark Knight" and is working on another Batman sequel....
The Walt Disney Company's $4 billion purchase of Marvel Entertainment just over a month ago has increased the pressure on Warner to succeed this time. Warner is expected to announce a DC slate in the coming months populated by characters like the Flash and Wonder Woman.
This is probably the closest thing to a confirmation we're going to get besides an official press release from the studio.
Christopher Nolan has etched his way into my Bat-loving heart with "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" but he has his work cut out for him on the third film. Can you think of any trilogy where the third film was the best?

A mix of the original comic book Joker, the Dark Knight Joker on a Jimmy Fallon looking face. I had a suggestion to paint the old comic book style Joker, but I couldn't help but to use the face on Jimmy Fallon, He has a great Joker face. I just had fun with the idea. why so serious anyway? :)
In all, the painting took about 2 hours.
On February 23 DC is set to release their next animated film, "Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths." If they continue their recent trend in animated films, expect to see a look at their next animated film, "Batman: Under The Hood."
Bat-fans will be happy to know we are learning more details about the film all the time. The latest news comes in the form of a cast announcement.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Bruce Greenwood will star as Batman, with John DiMaggio ("Futurama") as the Joker, "Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles as the Red Hood and Jason Isaacs as Ra's Al Ghul. "Doctor Horrible" and "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris will portray Nightwing.
"Batman: Under The Hood" will be adapted by Judd Winick and based on the storyline of the same name that Winick wrote in the "Batman" comic series with artists Doug Mahnke and Paul Lee.
The story finds Batman contending with a figure from his past who has donned the identity of the Red Hood — a former alias of the Joker — in order to pursue his revenge against the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime.
It is unconfirmed at this point whether or not several of the DC heroes that appeared in the original story — including Green Arrow and Zatanna — will appear in the film.
It should also be noted that the story in the LA Times identifies the film as "Batman: Under The Red Hood" even though the original story was simply called "Under The Hood."

Batman: Under the Hood, Vol. 1

Batman On Film guest contributor Mark Hughes wrote up an interesting article recently, entitled “Why and How The Joker CAN return in Batman 3.″ In the article Hughes explains exactly how The Joker can be re-used in the next Christopher Nolan directed Batman movie. He has a specific subplot in mind for the film which I thought was perfect. Here's a small dose of the article:
“A subplot about this aspect of the Joker as he relates to Batman and Gotham could be an important addition to the storyline… We need not see an entire new storyline about the Joker menacing all of Gotham. The Joker as a supporting character, much like Lecter’s role in SILENCE OF THE LAMBS was not the main plot but instead the most important narrative element making up subplots and character arcs”
For those not familiar, Anthony Hopkins won an Academy Award for Best Actor in Silence of the lambs, where he only has 16 minutes of screen time helping the protagonist accomplish her goals.
I think this is a brilliant idea and I'd love to see it. What do YOU think?

David Goyer was one of the key players in the recent live action Batman revival. Last year he took on showrunning duties over at ABC on their "Lost Lite" sci fi show "FlashForward." Recently we learned he has stepped aside from "Flashforward," in order to focus on some film projects, including the next Batman film!
Goyer had this to say about the show,
"As my feature projects have started ramping up again, I felt I was being pulled in too many directions. I'm proud of the show and excited about the relaunch. It's in great hands."
Deadline Hollywood recently got the Goyer scoop on his involvement in the third Batman film in the "Nolan-verse,"
"Goyer's feature career is really heating up, since he co-wrote Batman Begins, and penned the story for The Dark Knight, and is now writing the third Batman installment with Chris Nolan's brother Jonah."
Goyer has been hit-or-miss with me as far as comic properties are concerned. He's dabbled in writing, producing and directing (Blade: Trinity) and some have been hits (Batman films) and some have been misses (Blade TV show).
He's definitely got his hands full with "Batman," "Ghost Rider," "Super Max," and "X-Men Origins: Magneto." Here's hoping he can focus his attentions and put out a quality product with the next Batman film.

So, in addition to some other posts like writer profiles, I've taken it upon myself to provide you with my weekly pull list on every Sunday evening. I pretty much enjoy everything that I read, so if you trust my opinion on these things, you may want to check out some of these comics if you aren't already reading them. :)

Tasked with telling this story was none other than Tony Daniel on both art and writing duties. In Battle for The Cowl (the main story) Daniel shows us who was vying for the title of Batman. The three real contenders that he came to were Dick Grayson, a reluctant replacement for Bruce Wayne, Tim Drake-the at-the-time Robin, and former dead/Robin/Vigilante/very confused individual , Jason Todd.Battle for the Cowl pretty much just shows the process of the three former robins being very angry with each other and all feeling like they deserve the role of The Dark Knight.
Ultimately, the down fall of Battle for the Cowl is that it is over done, the main story did not particularly set up or clarify any of the current events of Gotham City, although the side stories, such as Azrael and Gotham Underground did push along a story for the characters involved. Which, in all honesty, is pretty strange considering that Tony Daniel is on the current run of Batman. The other downfall is that the story could have been told in one issue, and definitely did not need to go to three. These facts really tend to take you out of the story and you actually realize that what you are reading is pretty much pointless, so it begins to make you less focused on the work, and thus making it less enjoyable. Tony Daniel just does his job and leaves it at that. There are no interesting takes on any of the characters involved, and no new developments on pre-existing character traits. It's your run of the mill Batman story sans Batman.
Overall, the book itself it is not absolutely terrible, it's just that the book feels pointless. If you were to read this book on it's own, it could be fine if it didn't rely heavily on pre-existing knowledge of the events of Final Crisis and Batman: RIP. It's really unfortunate because it takes a 3-4 star book, and turns it into a 2-3 star book based solely on the current events. And compared to other trades like Hush, Long Halloween, The Black Glove, and many others, it definitely pales in comparison.
All in all, if you just ABSOLUTELY need to know every excruciating detail of how, but not why, Dick Grayson put on the cowl, pick this up, but if not, stay away and read the first trade of Batman & Robin, which is coming very soon

The character of Barbara Gordon has been through quite a lot since her first appearance of Detective Comics #359 in January of 1967. The creation of Babs was one of necessity; the producers of the ABC Batman series wanted another female character due to the on screen success of Catwoman. When Carmine Infantino and Gardner Fox were charged with this task they developed not only Barbara but Poison Ivy and another character named the Grey Fox. The producers loved the concept and Batgirl and there was plenty of cross-promotion to take advantage of. Barbara Gordon was not the first Batgirl; Bob Kane had created a Batwoman and Batgirl that existed for a short time in the 1950’s. Those characters, in the words of a DC Comics open letter to the fans at that time “were gone for good”. This meant that Barbara Gordon was going to be a central character to the Bat-family moving forward.
In the late 1960’s the Batman TV series cast Yvonne Craig as Barbara Gordon. There was a tremendous amount of buzz at the time for this move, and helped to seal the order for a third season of the show. Craig did various photo shoots dressed as Batgirl and promoted “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl” as her “favorite comic of all time”. Clearly this was a move to generate female interest in the character and subsequently the TV series as well as Detective Comics.
The origin stories for the character were basically the same. On the TV series Barbara was daughter of Police Commissioner James Gordon who was a graduate student working at the Gotham Public Library who moonlighted as Batgirl. The comic origin was slightly different, going into more detail for Barbara’s motivation to be under the cowl. At a very young age Babs and her friend Marcy would design costumes and secret identities for themselves; this would lay the groundwork for Babs becoming Batgirl later on. Living in suburban Ohio, Barbara’s parents were killed in a car crash and she went to live with her Uncle, Cpt. Jim Gordon at age 13 who promptly adopted her. Living in Gotham City, Babs became infatuated with the city’s nighttime protector Batman. Becoming obsessed, she learned everything that she could about the caped crusader. One evening she snuck into her father’s home office, where he was having a conversation with Batman. Not knowing until now that Batman and her adoptive father worked together, this made her obsession with the Dark Knight grow even stronger. The following morning Babs insisted that she should be enrolled in martial arts classes. Although he was reluctant, Jim thought that the daughter of a police Captain could benefit from self defense classes. Barbara quickly obtained a black-belt while excelling in her training. Having realized that Batman was not only a perfected martial artist, but a super intelligent detective as well, Barbara committed herself to excelling in academics. She had a photographic memory which helped her to graduate at Gotham Heights High School at the age of only 16. This enabled her to earn a scholarship to Gotham State University, where she was one of the youngest students. Barbara graduated GSU before she was even a legal adult. Barbara had become friends with Katarina Armstrong who we now know as “Spy Smasher” in the DCU. This friendship was ended abruptly at GSU when Kat and Babs were in a track & field race where Kat tripped Babs and won the race. It was several years before the two would cross paths again. Now 16, she had accepted a job at the Gotham Public Library as a research assistant. Her training was not forgotten however, she learned Jujitsu under a sensei named Dragoncat. By this time Barbara had decided she wanted to work in the field of law enforcement. She asked her father about joining the police academy, but James laughed at her, claiming that she didn't even meet the height requirements. She attempted to join the FBI as well, but was not accepted for the same reason.
It wasn’t but a few nights later that Barbara’s life would change forever. The GCPD was having a masquerade ball. Many of Gotham’s elite would be there, including Bruce Wayne. Babs designed and sewed a feminine looking Batman costume for the party, one that resembled her designs from when she was a child. Her intentions were to spite her father by crashing this party as “Batgirl”. Once arriving at the party things quickly changed. A costumed criminal named Killer Moth” had raided the party and was holding hostages for ransom. This was her chance and she took it, not realizing that Bruce Wayne was Batman she tackled Killer Moth who had taken Bruce as his prize hostage. This allowed Bruce to escape and slip away to change in to Batman joined by Robin. By this time Killer Moth had overpowered Batgirl and she needed some help. Killer Moth was allowed to escape so that Batman could save Batgirl. Batman scolded Batgirl for being so reckless. This was a shock for Babs, but despite his disapproval Batman sent her a set of batarangs via Dick Grayson who had subtly revealed himself to be Robin. When Babs solved the mystery of Robin’s identity Batman “swore her in” with an oath and revealed his own identity.
For years Batgirl was used in the comics less and less, losing much of the attention that the TV series had brought to the character. Various storylines had her placed as a love interest for Robin. She eventually retired as Batgirl after being less fulfilled by her role as Batgirl.
If you are interested in reading some of the silver age stories involving Batgirl you need to prepare yourself for a different social culture. Women in the silver age were often depicted as weak and even simple minded. The stories are good, but it’s hard sometimes to get past the Bat-lipstick and utility purse that were commonplace of the time. You may even find that her origin has some differences as well. The mega event “Crisis on Infinite Earths” which took place in 1985 restructured the DC universe and many characters back-story. The origin I have talked about is based on the corrections to continuity that Crisis was designed to correct for the whole universe.
One of the significant changes to the DCU post-crisis was grittier and darker universe our hero’s were living in. Barbara Gordon was no exception to this rule. Having retired as Batgirl, Barbara’s life was about to take a 180 in the Graphic Novel “The Killing Joke”. The story itself revolves mostly around Batman and the Joker, who believes that any man could be driven insane if he has a “bad enough day”. Jim Gordon and Barbara become lab rats in the Jokers sick experiment. The Joker knocks on the door of the Gordon’s house and shoots Barbara in the midsection effectively paralyzing her from the waist down. He then takes her bloody body and snaps countless pictures of her in various states of undress. The Joker then leaves to kidnap James and torture him with the gruesome images of Barbara. This is a fantastic story that I hate to spoil if you haven’t read it. The story as it relates to the Gordon’s however still is having aftershocks in the Batman titles today.
Barbara goes through a deep depression after having her spine severed by the Joker’s bullet and her father as well as her sometimes boyfriend Dick Grayson is left grief-stricken. This causes Barbara to develop an intense obsession with everything to do with the Joker. She begins to develop some remarkable computer hacking skills and regularly taps into the prison surveillance cameras to keep an eye on the Joker. Dick Grayson and Barbara argue that an exception should be made to kill the Joker.
Barbara is able to find a very useful way to put her high intellect of information technology to good work. She develops the Oracle after the Greek figure of the same name, who was an all knowing woman. To this day Barbara has been irreplaceable as Oracle serving as an information broker for Batman, the Justice League, and countless other heroes’ in the DCU. She even develops her own team of female crime fighters known as “the Birds of Prey”. But Barbara does rely on her mind alone; she trains with a martial arts master by the name of Richard Dragon to develop her upper body and a fighting style that she can use while still in her wheelchair.
The birds of prey series ran for 10 years and was written by a handful of notable writers. It was announced that in 2010 Gail Simone will be taking back the title after having worked on the series earlier in her career.
Oracle was instrumental in the 2008 event “Final Crisis”, where she and Mr. Terrific attempt to shut down the internet due to the plan that Darkseid has to spread his anti-life equation. They are not successful and fall prey to Darkseids plan.
Barbara has appeared in various media as well, many of the Batman animated series had appearances of both Batgirl and Oracle. The movie Batman & Robin showed us a different interpretation of Barbara/Batgirl being the niece of Alfred Pennyworth.
If you are interested in reading some batgirl stories as I mention earlier, there are many trades out there to get a “Batgirl/Oracle fix”. By reading any of these you are bound to have a greater appreciation for Barbara Gordon and her unrivaled value to the DCU. The trade series “Batgirl: Year One” is a great place to start to really get a feel for despite her different motivations than Batman, she is a very complex character well deserving of her long history in the DCU.
