The Fanatical Five | Things a Superman Game Needs to be Good By: Darrin Wright — http://bit.ly/11yF02y
Injustice: Gods Among Us hits PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U next week. Check out the preview on The Game Fanatics.
DC Comics is bringing Carrie Kelley into main continuity — as seen on the cover of Batman and Robin #19.
If you don’t know who she is, educate yourself on The Dark Knight Returns.
Fans have known about the basic figures set to roll out during the first wave of Mattel’s Batman Classics 1966 line since its debut during Toy Fair 2013, but there’s a newly-preorderable option available to collectors set on snagging an Adam West Batman and Burt Ward Robin in one fell swoop. Joining the first wave of Batman, Riddler and Penguin in July will be the “Batman Classics 1966 TV Moments Action Figure 2-Pack,” which recreates the Dyanmic Duo’s wall-climbing TV routine with a special building base (for both vertical and horizontal display options, of course) and appropriately flowing capes.
Don’t lie. You’re going to buy this.
Geek Cave Podcast #30: Darrin reviews Tomb Raider, the guys talk SimCity, Justin talks about the death of yet another Robin, and Chad finds a new topic to trend on Twitter with his Superman III review.
Yeah, we’re not holding our breaths on this one, but the site reporting this rumor has a good track record, so here goes:
Apparently, Christian Bale is in talks to reprise the role of Batman in the still-scheduled-for-2015-script-be-damned Justice League, with Christopher Nolan taking over ALL of DC Comics’ superhero properties.
So there’s that. Obviously it’ll take place in a different continuity (we think) than The Dark Knight Rises, unless they do a bit where ((SPOILERS)) Bruce Wayne gets tired of retirement or something.
Back in 1989, Batman had to famously deal with the death of the first Robin, Jason Todd, in the story arc ‘A Death in the Family’. Now in 2013, Bruce Wayne will have to deal with another death, only this time it’s…
Well, that’s not good… IHC could be reading too much into that cover, but if true, we can think of a large group of Batman fans that would be… pretty happy, actually.

Gotta love it when stuff like this happens. Save the Children will benefit.
And by Merlin’s saggy left buttcheek, is he creepy. DC announced today that the Joker, who hadn’t been seen since he had his face removed in Detective Comics #1, will be returning in Batman #13 in a storyline with HUGE possible foreshadowing, entitled “Death of the Family.” Yeah, it’s just one word away from that other “death” story the Joker’s well-known for.
We’re excited… and locking every door in the cave once October comes. You know, for safety.
So when DC announced at the beginning of this month that Alan Scott, the Green Lantern of Earth 2, was gay, we met his boyfriend Sam…whom they’ve promptly killed off exactly a month later in issue #3. Either it’s a cheap move to sell books, or an attempt to be controversial, but… really? DC’s idea of building drama for a new Green Lantern is to kill off his lover? Gee, that’s never been done before — OH WAIT IT TOTALLY HAS.
