  5. Teen Titans, Go! We Select A Fancast for TNT’s Teen Titans Live Action Pilot

    But will the theme song be as catchy?

    Last week it was announced that DC Entertainment is working on a Teen Titans television pilot for cable channel TNT, which, as we're all aware, knows drama. As a big fan of the cartoon line-up when I was... well, older than I was supposed to be and still watching cartoons, I thought we'd take the time to explore just who we'd like to see in a Teen Titan teen drama. Teen!

    Why isn't this just how MMA is all the time?

    We don't really follow mixed martial arts competitions, but we do follow superheroes beating the crap out of each other. That's why we love this video of MMA fighters dressed as the dynamic duo squaring off against our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

  7. Batman, Robin, a Smurf, and David Hasselhoff Fought Crime in the UK Last Week

    That is not a series of words we would ever expect to write. Guys, what is even happening over there?

    A guy dressed as Robin was assaulted while innocently spending time with friends dressed as Batman, a giant smurf, and David Hasselhoff in the UK last week, and the entire crew sprang into action to catch the attacker. Is it weird that the part of this we're having trouble accepting is someone dressed as Hasselhoff?

  12. TV’s Robin, Burt Ward, Comments on Current Robin Events

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    It’s a terrible choice to kill off Robin. Why bite the hand that feeds you? ... Robin should only die in people's imaginations! Or in a state of primal ecstasy! -- Burt Ward. Well, I can certainly understand Ward's distress over the fate of a fictional character that he's close to, even more when he's responsible for embodying one of the most iconic versions of that character. Although it's worth noting that this isn't the first time this has happened, nor is the current Robin even the same character as the one he played in the television show - Wait, did he say in a state of primal ecstasy?

  13. Star Wars and Superhero Socks, Because You Never Need an Excuse to Ogle Some Nerdy Socks

    i'll just leave this here

    Perfect for the 501st! Or maybe not. Maybe they wear tights under their armor, I guess I don't actually know. The great thing about nerdy socks? Unlike nerdy t-shirts and just like nerdy Converse: they're unisex.

  16. Spoiler Alert For the New 52… By Which I Mean Stephanie Brown is the Spoiler in the New 52

    Great Hera!

    With Barbara Gordon reclaiming the mantle of Batgirl in the rebooted DCU, it was uncertain whether the most recent Batgirl, Stephanie Brown, would remain part of continuity. However, just as Dick Grayson has once again reverted to the persona of Nightwing, it seems that Stephanie Brown has similarly been returned to being Spoiler. This is revealed in passing in the recent solicitations for Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes. It reads:
    “Guest stars galore! Batman and Spoiler team to face the School of Night while Batman Incorporated travels to a sinister Cold War interrogation facility to face the mind-bending menace of Doctor Dedalus for the last time while the true identity of Leviathan is finally revealed, with shocking consequences for the Dark Knight.”

  18. Holy Supercut, Batman!: Watch All of Robin’s “Holy”s from the Animated Series

    It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

    Robin doesn't know a whole lot of different ways to register shock. He can identify what he is shocked at, but when it comes to exclamations he seems to have a pretty limited vocabulary. Basically, he says "Holy" a lot. A lot a lot. All the frakking time. Although, to his credit the amount of things he's shocked about seem to vary widely ("Holy strange odors!" "Holy Benedict Arnold!" "Holy Split-Personalities!" "Holy False Imprisonment!" "Holy Float Like a Butterfly Sting Like a Bee!"). Now they've all been conveniently placed in one video cutting all of them together. Enjoy.

  20. How BioShock’s Plot Was Predicted by Batman: The Animated Series in 1994

    Oh, what's that... what's that thing where they're in a underwater city?  And it's all dystopian, with enormous mechanical guards?  Like, there's this billionaire capitalist who's starting a new civilization based on his rules, and he doesn't want anyone interfering with it?  But then the heroes come in and stop him with help from Mr. Freeze? Oh right.  It's an episode of Batman: The Animated Series and it's called "Deep Freeze." Compare to the synopsis for the original BioShock, courtesy of Wikipedia:
    BioShock is set during 1960, in Rapture, a fictional underwater dystopian city. The history of Rapture is learned by the player through audio recordings as he explores the city. Rapture was envisioned by the Randian business magnate Andrew Ryan, who wanted to create a laissez-faire state to escape increasingly oppressive political, economic, and religious authority on land. ... By New Year's Eve of 1959, "[Ryan's] paranoia had reached such a level he was hanging dozens of people, mostly innocent, in Rapture's main square."
