The Batman Episode Guide 1×10: A Death Worse Than Fate

Batman 1x10: A Death Worse Than Fate

The 1966 Batman television show was one of the most successful and influential adaptations of comic books to mass media of all time. Over the course of three seasons and 120 episodes, the series became a cultural force with its unique combination of tongue-in-cheek humor, thrilling superhero adventure and celebrity guest stars, and shaped the way the public would view the Caped Crusader for the next five decades. Now, in the midst of a well-deserved renaissance of the show, ComicsAlliance is proud to present The Batman '66 Episode Guide, an in-depth examination of every single adventure, arch-criminal and deathtrap cliffhanger of the series.

This week, Batman and Robin face Zelda the Great, Evol Ekdal, and... The Inescapable Doom Trap!

The Superpoll: Pratt Vs. Evans, Round I: Star-Lord Vs. Captain America

CA_Superpoll-r1

Chris Pratt and Chris Evans have gone to war. The second and third most handsome Marvel movie Chrisses (or third and second, maybe) have launched a Twitter feud over this coming weekend's Super Bowl between Pratt's team, the Seattle Seahawks, and Evans' team, the New England Patriots. Evans has now promised that if his team loses on Sunday, he'll visit the Seattle Children's Hospital in his Captain America costume, waving a Seahawks flag. But if Pratt's team loses, Pratt agrees he will visit the Christopher's Haven home for children with cancer in Boston, wearing his Star-Lord costume and a Tom Brady Patriots jersey.

The stakes are high. And adorable. And only fate, and maybe sport, can decide the outcome of this bet. But we wanted to give ComicsAlliance readers a chance to weigh in on the Pratt/Evans handsome-face-off, so all this week we're running a series of polls pitting the world of Captain America against the world of Star-Lord. At the end of the week we'll tally up the results to see which of these men is the people's champion. Welcome to The Superpoll.

Ask Chris #229: Could Batman Beat A Pro Wrestler In His Element?

Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: Can Batman defeat a pro wrestler in his natural element? --@ykarps

A: At first glance, this seems like one of the easiest questions I've ever tackled in this column. I mean, of course he could, right? He's Batman. While the rest of us were learning algebra in 8th grade, this dude was traveling across the world learning how to be the best possible expert at everything, just in case he needed it for his never-ending war on crime. Surely that would have to include professional wrestling, the King of Sports, if only because there's no other discipline that combines theatricality and combat in the way that would serve him so well back in Gotham City.

And yet, the more I think about it, the more I realize that, as shocking as it might be for me to say this as the World's Foremost Batmanologist... I doubt even Batman could beat a pro wrestler in his natural element.

‘Arrow’ Season 3 Recap, Episode 10: ‘Left Behind’

CA_ArrowRecap

The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson is back for the third season of the popular series in our recap feature we’re officially dubbing Pointed Commentary.

This week: The rapture doesn't happen, as the title may imply. In fact, people are pretty upset or in denial about last episode's apparent death. Also, Vinnie Jones shows up and is pretty awesome.

Brian Michael Bendis Tries To Explain ‘Secret Wars’ To 1.5 Million People, Clowns Glenn Beck

Untitled-1

Perhaps the most popular American comic book writer working today, Brian Michael Bendis joined Seth Meyers on NBC's Late Night to promote his upcoming Powers TV show, and to pitch Marvel's Secret Wars event series to everyone out there in TV land. According to Variety, Seth Meyers' nightly show is seen by over 1.5 million viewers, which is surely the largest number of people to be confused by superhero comics continuity in any one moment -- at least since the original Secret Wars was published in 1984, when there were more people buying comics to be confused.

Meet Inspector Pancakes, A New Children’s Book Hero Your Kids Should Never Read Under Any Circumstances

Untitled-1

Created by Karla Pacheco and Maren Marmulla, Inspector Pancakes Helps The President Of France (Solve The White Orchid Murders) is a twisted take on the popular children's storybook. The basic hook is that the beautiful illustrations and large print captions tell the kid-friendly version of this story in which a talking American dog detective travels to France to assist its President in locating his missing croissant, while the smaller type details the decidedly kid-unfriendly story of the hard boiled, depressive and nihilistic canine cop and his pursuit of a serial murderer who butchers his victims in deeply disturbing ways. It is hilarious and wrong.

Funky/Dick: The Crossover Of The Year Is Here

FunkyDick00

Friends and neighbors, it is truly a blessed day: Funky/Dick is finally here.

A few months back, we found an announcement buried in an article in Variety, of all places, that revealed plans for ComicsAlliance's two favorite comic strips, Funky Winkerbean and Dick Tracy, to cross over at the start of the year. Now, the day has come, and there is a very good chance that Les Moore will either be violently murdered or framed for murder. If I was a betting man, I'd put money on the latter, but in my heart, I know I'm hoping for the former.

Run For Your Life: Samsung Integrates Ultron Into New Marvel Tie-In Products

samsung-avengers-age-of-ultron-hed

Now that the threat of Skynet destroying us all has been averted by an increasingly crappy series of Terminator movies (or maybe they're just disappointing us to death), a new technological threat to all life on Earth has emerged. In order to promote the forthcoming pic Avengers: Age Of Ultron, tech giant Samsung has joined forces with Marvel to put Ultron in all your smart devices. Yes, the word "smart" to describe technology has never been more insidious than it is now. Smart; scheming; devious.
