DC And Dynamite Team For ‘Batman 66 Meets The Green Hornet’ By Kevin Smith, Ralph Garman And Ty Templeton

Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet

With the current resurgence of Batman '66 at DC and the ongoing Green Hornet revival going on over at Dynamite, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before we'd get another shot at their famous TV crossover. Now, we have confirmation that it's actually happening, in the form of a 12-part, digital-first series that will run biweekly starting on June 4 as a crossover produced by both companies.

The series will be drawn by Ty Templeton, and co-written by Ralph Garman and filmmaker and podcaster Kevin Smith.

Father Builds Child-Sized Batpod For His Kids, Should Probably Avoid Going To The Movies For A Few Years [Video]

eE48v's experimental Batpod

Listen, I understand wanting to do nice things for your kids, and that's great, but I have to imagine that as a parent, the absolute last thing you want to do is give your children something that makes them more like Batman. You know what that dude's origin is, right? You know how his parents end up, right? I mean, I'm just an uncle, and I can assure you that I have never once attempted to give my nephews any advice about power and responsibility, just in case.

But alas, my thoughts on self-preservation come too late for one father, who has gone out of his way to give his kids one of the Batman's's wonderful toys: an "experimental electric vehicle" that is a straight up child-sized Batpod from The Dark Knight.

NECA’s 1/4 Scale ‘Arkham Origins’ Figure Could Be The Beefiest Batman Toy Yet

Batman Arkham Origins Batman 1-4 Scale NECA
NECA

We've been seeing an increasing number of 1/4 scale figures from the likes of Enterbay and Hot Toys, but NECA's new Batman: Arkham Origins figure may be the beefiest take on the Caped Crusader so far -- even moreso than its Batman '89 and Batman '66 offerings. Standing at an intimidating 18" tall, the toy may even be able to serve as a home security option. Surely no superstitious and cowardly home invader could get past a grapnel gun-armed Batman the size of a toddler.

Hush May Be The Main Villain Of The Next Batman ‘Arkham’ Game

Hush, as rendered by Rocksteady

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

Okay. Breathe. We've got to get through this together. For those of you eagerly anticipating the next entry in Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham series (yes, Rocksteady and apparently not WB Games Montreal), this week brought an interesting rumor. Over at the fan Facebook page for Hush (which itself is pretty weird since it's a new Facebook page for a story that ran in the comics 11 years ago), someone posted a picture of a decidedly video-gamey Hush a.k.a. Dr. Thomas Elliot with the news that things were "about to get more interesting next month."

If that's true (and as Arcade Sushi argues, it very well might just be a rumor), it'll be a mean feat since Hush was never interesting to begin with, but it looks like we might be on the verge of an announcement that after cameos in all three highly successful games, Hush is taking the center stage in the next installment. And, God help me, that might actually be a good idea.

Ask Chris #185: Superheroes Of The Squared Circle

Deadpool Team-Up #888, Marvel Comics

Q: Who is the best wrestler in Marvel or DC? -- @Mike_Zeidler

A: I'll be honest with you, folks: Over the past week, I have pretty much done nothing but watch the new WWE Network for five straight days, so it was a foregone conclusion that this week's column was going to be about pro wrestling. It was either this, or a lengthy examination of what the tag team tournament from Starrcade '89: Future Shock had in common with Secret Wars II, and I don't think any of us want to sit through that.

Now, I've written about comics that were about pro wrestling in the past, but if we're talking about which mainstream superheroes would fare best inside the squared circle, well, there's certainly an obvious answer.

‘Batman Vs. Terminator’ Is The Best Animated Fan-Film You’ll See Until Skynet Takes Over [Video]

Batman vs. Terminator

Ever since the announcement that RoboCop vs. Terminator was getting the deluxe edition treatment it deserves, I've been thinking a lot about crossovers, and the more I think, the more I'm fixated on one of the most glaring oversights of '90s comics. Against all reason, against all logic, we never got Batman vs. Terminator. That's crazy, right? I mean, we got Batman vs. Predator three times. THREE. And yet, nobody ever sent a robot back in time to take out Bruiser Wayne.

Now, that has been corrected, in the form of a genuinely awesome five-minute animated fan-film from Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond, with music by Noir Deco, and it's awesome. Check it out below!

Toy Fair 2014: Funko’s Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hikari figures

Hikari 01

All that glitters isn't necessarily gold -- sometimes it's vinyl, and vinyl molded into designer figures of Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Fans can thank Funko for such glittery (and more chrome-like) goodness, as the toymaker revealed new Hikari figures based on the characters at Toy Fair 2014.
