If you weren't aware, Reddit has a section called "Ask Science Fiction," which is essentially a space in the Internet for people to ask for explanations of details in fictional stories ("When and why did the Decepticons and Autobots split apart?") or consider fictional "what if" scenarios ("What would cause someone to lose their connection to The Force?").

The last time Batman appeared in a Warner Bros. animated production in the Bruce Timm "style," it was in the Justice League Unlimited series, which ended in 2004.
Now, the big-eared, Timm-designed version of Batman is back in a new short for Cartoon Network's DC Nation block, titled Batman Strange Days, which finds the Dark Knight taking on Hugo Strange and a mysterious, Solomon Grundy-like giant. It looks dark --virtually black and white or sepia -- and features Batman firing a huge gun evocative of Gundam Wing's Twin Buster Rifle marked "tear gas."
Check out a handful of stills in anticipation of the short's April 9 debut, after the jump.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we've discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
