Back when I was a kid in the early '90s, there was a video game I liked down at the local arcade called Revolution X. It wasn't what you'd call very good, but what set it apart from similar rail shooters like Time Crisis was the plot, where a sinister organization called the New Order Nation had taken over the world, outlawed rock music and kidnapped Aerosmith, and the only way to make the world safe for Youth Culture was to shoot their dominatrix leader's helicopter with a machine gun that also launched exploding CDs.

Today at The Source, DC put up a five-page preview of Batman and Robin #16, and as you might expect, the ComicsAlliance staff is pumped. This is, after all, the finale of Grant Morrison's run on the title before he kicks off Batman, Inc later this month, and with the awesome last page of Batman and Robin #15 leading into it, it looks like fans of the Caped Crusader are in for some good times.
