Sideshow Collectibles Captures The Biggest Characters in Its Biggest Format [NYCC 2016]

Sideshow Collectibles Sixth-scale Daredevil Figure

Sideshow Collectibles doesn't often venture to New York Comic Con, but when it does, the company manages to roll out more than enough surprises for fans. While the booth at NYCC was decidedly smaller than that at San Diego Comic-Con --- which was a bit of a relief, to be honest --- that doesn't mean there weren't some great new statues and figures on display. This NYCC in particular was especially good for Sideshow's Premium Format Figure line, which debuted a half-dozen new pieces.

Luchador Bane Is Finally Happening In ‘Batman ’66’

Bane00

Ever since DC's Batman '66 comic started adding 1960s-style versions of modern villains to the show's existing roster of arch-criminals, there's one that I've been hoping for more than any other, one that seemed like it was virtually inevitable. And now, it is finally happening: We are getting Luchador Bane.

Hot on the heels of the '66 debut of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, the solicitation for the print version of Batman '66 #27 has revealed that Batman will be heading to Mexico to apprehend the Riddler and find himself duking it out with Bane in the wrestling ring. In other words, we may have discovered the perfect comic book.

Watch Bizarro Fight Bane For Some Reason In Footage From 2012’s Unreleased ‘Justice League’ Fighting Game

JLFG

I've mentioned before that I've always been fascinated by comics and video games that never quite made it to the shelves, and this week, YouTube's PTOPOnline, which specializes in unearthing those exact unreleased games, found one that's of particular interest: a Justice League fighting game for XBox360 that was in production back in 2012.

What makes this one so interesting (at least to me) is that we actually did get a Justice League fighting game (of sorts) in the form of Injustice: Gods Among Us just a year after this one was in development. Well, that, and the fact that it's illustrated with that timeless comic book conflict of Bizarro vs. Bane, in what seems to be a battle of who can best punch the other directly in the crotch. Give it a watch!

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.

AO5

After months (or, really, years) of buildup, Batman: Arkham Origins is hitting store shelves today. With all the stuff we've seen from the game so far, it hardly seems to need to prove much to fans, but a set of launch-day screenshots proves something, anyway: There will be fighting. Lots and lots of fightng.
