No opinions on Michelle Pfeiffer's and Anne Hathaway's portrayals of Catwoman?

On another note, Ra's al Ghul, and by extension his daughter Talia, are supposed to be of Arabic descent according to Ra's's origin story, right?

Think it's a joke about the robins all looking like a mini version of Bruce.

Looks like DC remembered their Earth One books.

Teen Titans by Jeff Lemire and Terry & Rachel Dodson late 2014.

Superman vol 3 and Batman vol 2 in 2015.

Wonder Woman is... after Multiversity? No official date given yet.

got a weird question.

how did the Teen Titans' personalities match up to how they're usually written in the comics? the members i'm asking about specifically are Robin (Dick Grayson), Starfire, Raven, Cyborg, and Beast Boy. i know the writers may have taken a few liberties with Deathstroke ("Slade"), but i'm wondering if they significantly changed anyone else.

In the comics, Cyborg was much more serious and his father played a prominent past background role for him. Starfire was much more of a warrior, borderlining Blood Knight, far less naive and even willing to kill in the heat of battle without losing sleep over it (even if she held back because of her teammates). Beast Boy wasn't quite as immature, and Raven was blander, more distant/alien acting, and less of a Deadpan Snarker. Robin had the most writers, so it was much of a case of Depending on the Writer, but arguably he overall changed the least.

Also Kid Flash, Wondergirl (Donna Troy) were more prominently featured characters.

[up][up] Actually, the Teen Titans run that the cartoon is mostly based on had one writer (Marv Wolfman) for pretty much it's entirety.

Mar 30th 2014 at 1:28:58 PM

Yes, but Robin also appeared in a ton of Batman books under a ton of different writers as well, while the other core Titans from the show were restricted exclusively to their own title for the most part.

Mar 30th 2014 at 1:44:02 PM

[up] Ah, okay. I see what you mean. Yeah, fans at the time even commented that Robin in the Titans was a vastly different character from Robin in Batman. Wolfman gets most of the credit for giving Dick Grayson a personality that stuck with him. Kind of a shame when you only get a definitive personality some 40 years into your existence as a character.

Anyone know of licensed/official websites where I can watch ANY DC Comics TV shows or movies for free legally apart from Netflix? I can't seem to find any.

I know - it sucks! Although DC is notoriously stingy with ALL their material. Marvel has a bunch of free digital comics on their website and used to have nearly every single old animated show (like X-Men, Hulk, Spidey, Evolution you name it) on their site too. If they're trying to stay above the competition, I wonder why DC doesn't release something to compete with Marvel's free stuff.

Ok, question. Does anyone know all the titles of the books they've published for their Batman Beyond Universe/expansion/whatever they're calling it? Because I am slowly trying to collect them. So far the books I've gotten are Justice League Beyond: In Gods We Trust, Superman Beyond: Man of Tomorrow. Batman Beyond: Batgirl Beyond. A Nd I know the ones I don't have are Konstriction; Ten Thousand Clowns, and Industrial Revolution.

I read the Showcase Presents volume of the Super Friends tie-in comic, and was surprised to learn that my vague memory was correct—the third issue involves mass murder, with some deaths on panel, none undone by the end of the story. Pretty intense for a children's comic in the 1970s.

Jul 5th 2014 at 9:09:12 AM

I still have an issue where the Scarecrow grabs Robin's head and tries to drown him into a pool while his henchmen shoot at the Superfriends. Like, with actual guns (I think Superman was fear-gassed into not helping, and WW was gassed to fear her bracelets, so she took them off).
