How Many Times Must We See Batman’s Parents Die? Oh, So Many Times

Untitled-1

Just how many times have we watched a young Bruce Wayne witness the murder of his parents? No origin story for the Caped Crusader has been without it, and FOX's Batman prequel series, 'Gotham,' is no different. As the new drama premiered this week, kicking off with the brutal death of Mr. and Mrs. Wayne, a new supercut has hit the web of all the time's we've seen this scene onscreen -- and it's quite a number of times.

Nerdist’s ‘Talent Agency’ Short Beats The Odds: Two Funny Superhero Sketches In A Row [Video]

STA01

Comedy sketches about superheroes tend to be a pretty mixed bag. We know, they're sent to us each time one emerges from the ether. So believe us, we're as surprised as you are that the good people over at Nerdist have managed to knock out two in a single month that are pretty hilarious. Hot on the heels of a short about Batman's parents not actually being dead comes "STA: Superhero Talent Agency," which imagines a world where heroes have agents to get them endorsement deals and television appearances, and just what exactly that requires.

Fox News Said Some Incredibly Stupid Bullsh*t About Comics Again [Video]

Fox01

The great thing about Fox News is that it's only Tuesday and you're already about to see the dumbest thing you'll see all week.

In this case, it's a clip from Fox's weekend morning show, where three people with the collective brains of a sack of doorknobs turn their reasoned and well-thought out opinions to the world of comic books. Specifically taking on Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman's upcoming run on Thor, where the iconic Marvel hero will get a new identity as a woman, and complaining about Wonder Woman's costume in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film by comparing it to Jim Lee's redesign from four years ago that, according to them, appears to be a product of what they characterize as fundamentalist Sharia Law.

No, really, this dope on the left actually says that.

‘Project Greenlight’ Short Film Illustrates The Argument Against Sexist Superheroine Costumes

Untitled-1

Over the past few years, comics fans have been embroiled in a debate over the double standard that applies to superhero costumes. While men's costumes are increasingly depicted as totally functional, women's costumes remain what they've been for decades: skimpy, overtly sexualized, and all too often, anything but what would be practical for the purposes of patrolling the streets and fighting crime.

Filmmaker Luke Patton's short film "Sexy Superhero" faces that debate head-on and makes something really funny out of it.
