Unsinkable Ship: Why Barbara Gordon And Jason Todd Are Stronger Together [Love & Sex Week]

DC Comics
DC Comics

When I first jumped into the Batbooks early into the New 52, I was disappointed to learn that Barbara Gordon, my favorite superheroine, hadn’t had many love interests, and even less showing up in the new canon. How did a character so awesome, who had been around for so long, have so few romances over the years? I had started brainstorming who I would pair her with, and around that time I checked out the event comic Death of the Family.

In the last issue, the Batfam had stopped the Joker, but they were all still coming down from the Joker toxin. While they were all sitting in a pool of water, grinning painfully against their wills, there was this one detail towards the back of the panel...

The Definitive Power Ranking Of Every Single ‘LEGO Batman Movie’ Minifigure

LEGO Batman Minifigure Collection, via Lego

The Lego Batman toy line has been going strong for over a decade now, but with this week's release of the Lego Batman Movie, we've seen a truly unprecedented explosion of merchandise based around the Caped Crusader's blockiest incarnation. And with that many figures, going from the Dark Knight himself all the way down to super obscure deep cuts like the Mime and March Harriet, our course here at ComicsAlliance is clear.

We need to rank them.

So today, we've dug through every single Lego Batman Movie minifig (and eliminated simple variations like "Batman with a slightly different face") to rank them all, worst to best.

Blind bag toys have been a huge market these past few years, and perhaps no brand knows this better than Lego. Since launching the blind bag minifigures back in 2010, Lego has had tremendous success with the collection, which has had 16 proper waves alongside special edition series like Disney and The Simpsons. Early next year, another special series will see Lego celebrate the launch of The Lego Batman Movie, and you might be surprised to see who's being packed inside.

The Replacements: Dick Grayson And The Legacy Of Robin

Robin-Featured

Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.

The first truth of Batman is that he was never alone, he always had help and he's almost always had a Robin by his side. Bruce Wayne has always needed the lightness of Robin to balance the darkness of Batman, and despite some tragedy along the way, the title of Boy (and Girl) Wonder is one of the most enduring legacies in the DC Universe.

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.

Kotobukiya SDCC 2015 Announcements

It's easy to get lost in the sea of companies offering statues, figures and other collectibles at San Diego Comic-Con, but it's awful hard to miss Kotobukiya's bright green banners wherever it sets up. With a display full of statues, the company's SDCC 2015 showings introduced new items a range of sizes and from a variety of licenses.

Red Hood Shoots Many Men in New Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer

red hood

It wouldn't be a modern day video game release if there wasn't some kind of exclusive pre-order DLC at GameStop. Despite the hopes of just about everyone in the universe that isn't an executive at the gaming retail chain, even Batman: Arkham Knight has succumbed to the trend. Exclusive to those who pre-order the upcoming third game in Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham trilogy at GameStop, the Red Hood Story Pack puts you in the shoes of the vigilante for the first time in the series. If you recall, GameStop is also the only place you can get DC Collectibles' Batman: Arkham Knight Red Hood figure as well. Guess somebody over there really, really, really, really likes Jason Todd... if that's who this Red Hood is, anyway.

Today, we got our first in-depth look at the Red Hood Story Pack DLC outside of a brief commercial that's been airing hyping up the pre-order incentive. Unlike previous Batman: Arkham DLC packs, you'll actually be able to play through some story missions as the Red Hood. Previously, additional character packs were relegated to Challenge Mode only, save for the Catwoman DLC in Arkham City. This time around, both Harley Quinn and Red Hood will get playable segments, which would be a great new twist if both characters weren't used as bargaining chips in exclusive deals.
