Fantastic Five: The Top Five Gorillas in Comics
Fantastic Five: The Top Five Gorillas in Comics
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics. This week we're taking a look at our primate brethren, who were once so popular as a topic in comics that putting a gorilla on a cover could guarantee an increase in sales. Gorillas have worn many hats in comics, both figurative and literal, from hero to villain to valet to secretary. Here are a few of the very best.

'Batman Unlimited' Movie Has A Robot Panther Motorcycle
If you're like me and you make a point of checking for new Batman toys every time you're in a store with a toy aisle, then you may already be familiar with Batman Unlimited. The line's been kicking around for a few years, but now it seems like DC is releasing a new direct-to-video feature that ties in. On the one hand, I'm not a big fan of the designs that they're going with for the movie -- like the figures, they boast a version of the bat-symbol that seems slightly off-model and give Batman's cowl a weird chinstrap that looks like a blue soul patch. On the other hand, this is a movie that has Batman riding around on a robot panther that turns into a motorcycle, and that's basically amazing. Give it a watch for yourself.

What Does Gorilla Grodd Have In Common With Donkey Kong? How About This Custom Diorama
What does Donkey Kong have in common with the comic book kingdom? Not too too much, to be honest, until you account for his arrival on the custom action figure scene courtesy of a DC Universe Classics Gorilla Grodd action figure. No, there isn't some mysterious crossover on the horizon from DC Comics and Nintendo pitting Donkey Kong against The Flash and Gorilla Grodd against the Mario brothers...
