I was an unabashed fan of the 1989 Batman movie around the time of its release (particularly after it hit VHS), but the years have worn down my appreciation of it, and quite a few aspects of it don't entirely stand up to the scrutiny of a critical lens anymore.
There are a few pieces of media related to the film, however, that I feel just as positively about as I ever have. The Prince soundtrack, for one. And for another, the Sunsoft-developed game for the Nintendo Entertainment System that included a few cutscenes with lines from the movie, and largely ditched its plot otherwise. I took a stroll down memory lane with it, and it still holds up.

This week, a certain unit that's more of a squad makes its TV debut, Ollie turns to Russian mobsters for help, and Dig gets involved in a moral quandary.
Well, the makeup of that Suicide Squad has been revealed in some new photos posted to CBR. The members appear to be (from left to right): Bronze Tiger, mad bomber Shrapnel (Sean Maher), Waller, and Deadshot (Michael Rowe). Also present are A.R.G.U.S. agent Lyla Michaels/Harbinger (Audrey Marie Anderson) and, surprisingly, none other than Team Arrow member John Diggle (David Ramsey).

This week, Thea worries about her associations, business tension reaches new highs, and Team Arrow is going to Russia!
Not to be overshadowed by its big-console brother, the WB Games handheld prison-action game Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgateis showing off some of the trick it's got up its "Metroid-Vania" sleeve.
Among them: A lot of bad guys, including The Joker, The Penguin, Black Mask, Deadshot, and the just-revealed Solomon Grundy. Catwoman's there, too (and also in a new screen shot from the game). See if you can spot any more in the trailer after the cut.

Last year, DC Comics celebrated the anniversary of its New 52 launch with a month full of zero issues. On its second anniversary in September, the publisher is handing its books over to the bad guys. "Villains Month" will spin out of this summer's "Trinity War" crossover, according a DC press release. Each book in the line will replace the title hero's name with a villain's name and be a #1 issue of sorts. Also: Lenticular 3D covers, no joke.
