I know that Fanboy and Chum Chum is a terrible show, but I can't help but love Kyle. I watch it just for him. I think I'm in love with him. Almost everyone in that show is really ugly, but there's something really attractive about Kyle. Like he would be really sexy if he wasn't animated in such an ugly art style. I'm obsessed with Kyle. I think about him all the time, and I can't stop thinking about him. I dream about him every night. I think I need help.

I'm not a gamer so plead total ignorance here - but I am a long-standing Batman fan. In what Universe do the Arkham games take place? Are they supposedly connected to the Nolan-verse, or the maybe the DCAU, or do they have their own Arkham-verse?

As we know, "Batman" is renown for having multiple universes. Just about each movie series, television series, video games or book series is an isolated universe. Don't let the fact that Kevin Conway and Mark Hamil have reprized their respective roles fool you, as that aspect is kind of like a borrowing of elements from previous canons.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2008)

I'm a fan of the DCAU (especially BTAS and JL/JLU) and other DC animation but I've never caught this show. Anyone who's seen it, what do you think?
2 Name: Anonymous : 2017-01-07 20:25
Its a more tongue and cheek variation of Batman. More like the goofy 1950s era version. The best episode is actually the final one.

I'm a decades-long DC fan with good knowledge of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Justice League (comics, animation and live-action movies/TV) and the DCU in general. One character I've never been able to get into is Green Lantern - and as time's gone on the task of trying to has become more daunting (now of course with the mountain of stuff that Johns did). Any knowledge I do have of GL comes from Justice League and occasional crossovers. So... is watching GL:TAS (which I've never seen) a good way of 'breaking into' the world and mythos of Green Lantern? And is the world of GL:TAS pretty consistent with the comics?
2 Name: Anonymous : 2017-01-07 20:18
Try the DC Green Lantern animated movies, Green Lantern: First Flight and Emerald Knights should be enough to immerse you into the world of the Green Lantern Corps. There are also compilations that are readily on sale at comic book stores.

The handling of Barbara Gordon's character (or lack of it?) in The Killing Joke is something that sometimes leads to heated debate. I came across this comment.

"I've never gotten that objection to how Barbara is used in "The Killing Joke." It implies there is something wrong with using a character to further another character's story, which is ridiculous. Furthering stories is what characters are for. Fictional characters are not real people, they are objects that exist only for the purpose of telling stories.

No one makes this criticism about the many other characters who suffer or die to further another character's story. [i]No one says that Thomas and Martha Wayne were used badly in the origin of Batman, because they exist only to traumatize Bruce by their deaths[/i]. Ditto for Ben Parker, Abin Sur, and Yin Sen.

The only explanation for why this double standard exists that I can think of is that Violence Against Women, and especially Sexual Violence Against Women are topics many people find upsetting; and some people lack the emotional maturity necessary to realize that just because something upsets them, doesn't mean it's wrong, or that it makes a bad story. So they make up a bogus criticism that attacks one of the basic foundations of storytelling.

There is nothing wrong, either morally or from a storytelling perspective, with hurting or killing a character in order to make another character who loves them upset."

Any thoughts? I think the statement is interesting.

The handling of Barbara Gordon's character (or lack of it?) in The Killing Joke is something that sometimes leads to heated debate.

I think you missed the context of the original debate by comparing to the Wayne parents.

The cover that was used to attract a potential buyer perpetuated the continuing violent misogyny in our society. The lack of sensitivity or empathy towards reducing violence towards women is what's grating, just to make a few measly dollars.

Nowadays, variant covers are a normal part of the sales machinery. Had that cover been offered as a variant rather than as a general sale, there might have been less of an outcry.

As for the story itself - pushing the boundary of 'decency' in making Barbara Gordon a pawn and a degraded victim to affect her loved ones deeply - TV and films rarely go this far. For comic books normally directed at teens, the writers of the book were announcing there are a large swath of adult readers of comic books who want mature themes. In that respect, that proved to be true as the film industry has capitalized with mature themes and comic book heroes.

Why does he a different love interest in roughly every movie? Granted I don't think there's really an answer to this, since the studios and writers themselves likely don't know.

Three versions of him had a slightly romantic relationship with Selina Kyle: Batman Returns, The Dark Knight Rises and Gotham. Multiple versions of him had a romantic, sexual or even procreative relationship with Talia al Ghul (comic books, graphic novels, animated series, animated movies and The Dark Knight Rises). (If that's a spoiler, then my apologies.) Then there's also Vicki Vale (Batman [1989]), but also two others created specifically for the works in which they appeared: Chase Meridian (Batman Forever), Rachel Dawes (Batman Begins and The Dark Knight) and Silver St. Cloud (comic books, Gotham). I'm sure there are others. Often, however, he is plainly single.

Imagine a universe in which Bruce knew all of them. Even as a matter of serial monogamy, it would be wild!

Anyway, who is he meant to ultimately be with? It seems to come down to a race between Selena and Talia. They are fighters (yet antiheros), whereas all the others are kind of like bait for being damsels in distress. Yet all of the are committed to their professions and take their work very seriously: a reporter, a psychologist, an attorney, a ninja and a burglar, though notably the reporter stoops to the lowest levels or puts herself in danger to make headlines.

Julie Madison was Bruce Wayne's girlfriend/fiancee in the earliest Batman comic stories. Eventually she got phased out but made random returns here and there over the years. Her only film appearance that I know of was in Batman & Robin played by Elle Macpherson.

I haven't the slightest idea who he winds up with---or if he even winds up with one woman. My preference would be Selina but he obviously has a strong connection to Talia through Damian.

When you like/love a superhero movie/series, do you have to buy the comics? I'm only askin' 'cause I usually stick to one patricular superhero from either DC or Marvel; I'm for a DC fan.
2 Name: Anonymous : 2017-01-07 19:54
I'm a DC fan - have been for decades - so I already read the comics for the DC heroes. As far as Marvel goes, I'm a huge fan of the X-Men movies - but I haven't read an X-Men comic since about 1985; and I like some of the MCU - but again haven't read any of those characters comics since the mid 80s. So no, it's not essential.
3 Name: Anonymous : 2017-01-07 19:58
You don't have to. Sometimes I've already read the main story arc on which a film is based, sometimes I'll read it afterwards if I enjoyed the story and want to know more. Films cut out a lot of details or change things entirely, so reading the source material can be like having a brand new experience. But it's really up to you.

If you're a DC fan, my suggestion is to read most anything before or after the NEW52.

This isn't superhero-related, but I purchased the entire Sin City books after watching and owning the DVD. After watching and owning the first two seasons of the Boondocks, I purchased or borrowed the books containing the collection of comics.

For me, I like to check out the written/graphic original source to see if it was as good as the show/film.

Anybody here read it? I'm reading it now for the second time (first time was when it first came out) and the thing that strikes me most of all is what struck me when first read it - it seems a completely pointless exercise. It's okay as far as it goes, but we already know what happened to Jason Todd back in '88. Yes it's a different continuity, but it's not as if DKR:TLC reveals a very different end for him.

It's written reasonably well, the art's okay (does a good job of approximating Miller's original stuff in TDKReturns), but unless a DKR:TLC pt 2 materialises to blindside us with some incredible revelation I just don't see the point

Facebook has suspended the official Facebook page for the adult humour magazine VIZ, citing that it violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which all users are required to abide by upon creating and maintaining a Facebook page.

Controversy

The comic was reprimanded by the United Nations after featuring a strip called "The Thieving Gypsy Bastards". During the resulting court case, UK newspaper The Sun ran a story revealing that the principal Roma man who initiated the action against them was in fact also being tried for (and was later found guilty of) handling stolen property.

The Power Rangers have always been of different ethnicities. But in the 90s show, Billy the Blue Ranger was a white flamboyant science nerd, and Zack the Black Ranger was the street-smart black teen who was into hip hip and liked to dance.

In the new movie reboot, Billy is black, whilst still being the science nerd, while Zack is Asian.

I think it's a good idea actually. The originals were used too many stereotypes. Zack, which rhymes with black, is the black ranger. Making the black guy the gay science nerd is a good change IMO. It's still the same character as Billy.

I've recently rewatched Disney's 1937 "Snowhite and the seven dwarfes", and it reminded me of a certain memory back from the old days. I vaguely recall there being a spinoff of some kind which featured among other characters seven dwarves from the Snowhite. I particulary remember an episode, where they were lost in a maze ,but Dopey accidentaly latched a thread of his shirt onto a hook at the entrance and it rolled of as they went. When they saw that they were lost, they noticed the thread and like Theseus in Minotayr's labyrinth they went by the thread to the exit. There were some kind of Disney characters along the way in this feature, but I can't remember who they were.

I did some research, but was not able to find any trace of this animated feature. I might just saw it all in a dream, which somehow stayed with me to this day (I've had this kind of dreams before), or the cartoon was real. Have you heard of it, Anon?

Please, I got to know!
