On this week’s episode, Oliver and the Arrow Babies make a trip to Hub City to track down their potential new Black Canary, while back in the past of the never-ending flashback, Talia al Ghul has a proposition for Ollie that he can’t refuse.
Talia al Ghul
The Arrow-verse technically introduced us to Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Talia once before, but the famed Batman character’s visit to Oliver’s world has been a mystery until now. A new synopsis for February’s “Second Chances” sees Oliver teaming up with Bruce Wayne’s sometime love interest, albeit at a deadly cost.
There are enough great DC supervillains to fill Belle Reve Prison several times over, so we’ve asked ComicsAlliance contributors Benito Cereno, Elle Collins, Chris Haley, Emma Lawson, Kieran Shiach, and Tom Speelman to compete in putting together their very best fantasy DC supervillain teams.
In part three, we introduced the stealing element, and while there was only one theft, things are about to get hectic in our fourth and final day of the draft. Can Emma hold on to Harley Quinn? Will Benito keep his team of apes together? Is anyone here going to rise above and resist the urge to steal?
The Suicide Squad movie has brought some of DC's weirdest villains to the big screen even before some of the publisher's major heroes could make their debut, and judging by the movie's huge opening weekend, audiences are only too happy to meet the bad guys.
Of course, there are enough great DC supervillains to fill Belle Reve Prison several times over; many more than we might ever meet at the movie theatre. So for ComicsAlliance's third fantasy superteam draft, following on from our fantasy X-Men teams and our fantasy LGBTQ teams, we've asked our contributors to fight it out to put together the best DC supervillain teams, drawing only from the main line DC comics continuities.
The CW’s latest super-show, Legends of Tomorrow, follows Rip Hunter on his adventures through time, with a team of misfits that includes Arrow’s Atom and White Canary, both halves of Firestorm, Hawkwoman, and Flash rogues Captain Cold and Heat Wave. Arrow and Flash recappers Matt Wilson and Dylan Todd are on hand to deliver our Legends of Tomorrow post-show analysis, Stuff of Legends.
In this week's "Left Behind," nobody gets raptured, but a few of our heroes are forced to live in a repressed, 1950s society for two whole years. Meanwhile, a recurring villain is revealed to be... someone we've seen before. The episode's director was John F. Showalter, working from a script by Beth Schwartz and Grainne Godfree.
In today's polls, we look at love in the Bat-family, where romance typically takes a backseat in the Batmobile to justice, punching, and moping. Is there such a thing as a great love interest in Batman's life? Do Tim and Steph belong together, and is Dick meant to be happy ever after with Babs or Kory or you? (It's you, isn't it? We didn't include a poll for that one, because it was always Dick and you.)
In one short month, Grant Morrison's eight-year run on Batman will come to an end with Batman Incorporated #13.
