Our Top 3: Male and Female DC Villains

Now, the moment I have been waiting for! I get to rant on and on about how much I love the villains of Gotham!!! I mean DC…… Awh who am I kidding? They are all from Gotham!

So let’s get right into it!

#3 Bane and all of his muscles. After watching the way Bane was portrayed in the final Christopher untitledNolan film, I was in love. Every move he made was strategically planned out and he was constantly one step ahead of Batman. This shows how much smarter Bane is than his target. Looking at Bane you would think he’s a dumb brute with some one behind the scenes calling the shots and while Talia is constantly talking down to him as if that’s so. He proves over and over that it is untrue. He spent his years in prison researching and surpassing most scientists intellectual levels.

 

#2 The Gotham City Sirens, who consist of Cat Woman, Poison Ivy and my all time favorite female character Harley Quinn. Together the woman form743569-first_look_at_gothams_streets_and_sirens_20090317045957107_1_ an alliance to protect themselves from other villains and heroes Gotham. Along the way they screw each other over, time after time, but ultimately their friendship with stands and they are always there when they are most needed. Ivy originally brought the girls together after Harley had seemed to hit rock bottom when she realizes The Joker is actually dead. They stayed at Selena Kyle’s apartment and assisted one another in any category possible. While living together Poison Ivy exposes Harley to a chemical that makes her faster, stronger and immune to Ivy’s poison. Once she realizes The Joker is in prison and not actually dead, she attempts to redeem herself with him by breaking him out with her new powers. In the end The Joker turns on her and tries to kill her, Ivy and Cat Woman run to the rescue and forever on they are inseparable. Harley learned her lesson and stayed faithful to her girls.

 

#1 As predictable as this is, I have to pick The Joker as my number one. Because he has so Manwholaughsmany different origin stories I can’t pick a favorite. So I’m just going to go on and on about how diabolical, creepy, insane and utterly BRILLIANT he is. He’s a ruthless killing machine. I can’t even begin to explain how easy it is for him to just take people’s lives. He literally enjoys it, making his obviously psychopathic. There is no better way to describe the ultimate killing machine. No other villain in comic history is so confident and overly content with who they are. He commits his crimes in unmistakable ways. If he is going to kill you, he’s going to make sure people know he did it. He always leaves a trail behind but is never caught. Impossible as it may be, he is always getting away. Like I mentioned before there are so many different origins, so there are so many different abilities he may or may not have. All of them as interesting as they are, they make his the most unique and interesting villain to ever exist.

 

 

 

 

So, first day back and Chels takes Joker from me? Ouch, that’s low. Jokers dominance goes without saying, and while I can’t steal him back from Chels (cop out), I have to recognize the fact that he is the villain of alllllll villains. So there Steve. :p Not to mention, she also kind of stole the top 3 female villains in the DC Universe, leaving me with the likes of Talia ah Guhl, Cheetah, and freaking Bloody Mary. Like seriously?! She is playing dirty, so bare with me if you don’t particularly agree with my female pick because truthfully neither do I!

#3 May as well get it out of the way, has to dive deep to fine this one. We’re gonna go with Blackfire for #3. Blackfire is actually kind of interesting, for one she is the sister of Teen Titans member Starfire. Naturally she posses all of the same abilities as her teen_titans__blackfire_by_stepany1234-d4q6u2nsibling, (flight, star bolts, different color eyes, etc.) but the only difference is this girl isn’t afraid to use them. The black in her name Blackfire, must be point at her heart because unlike sweet, innocent, and naïve Starfire, this girl will rip your freaking throat out. Maybe that’s enough to warrant her a #3 spot.

 

#2 Finally I get to choose a male, I’m going with lex_06the man with the plan (literally always has a plan) Lex Luthor. Interesting thing about Luthor is he doesn’t really have a power per se (although he has developed Tony Stark like suits in the past), but he holds a tremendous amount of power on Earth. The founder and CEO of LexCorp, he soon finds himself at the seat of presidency. Thing is he don’t like Superman. Goes without saying I know, but he has a distinct hatred for interfering aliens (Such as the Man of Steel). While other villains just simply want to defeat their protagonist and would actually go mad if they were to die (Batman-Joker) Lex Luthor wants Supermans very existence on Earth to cease and is willing to do any means necessary to do so (think Krytponite) his hatred for said hero turns him into a sociopath, which makes him all the more interesting and puts him at #2.

 

#1 You know me, I live to stir up controversy. So my #1 is gonna be Slade Wilson. Deathstroke. Slade. Whatever you wanna call him the dude is a bad-A. I can speak more about Slade, the Teen Titans version, then the others. Slade was a man of 3056558-9745420483-28897mystery; he had a fascination with Robin, turned him and Terra against the Titans, hinted that he may or may not have some kind of relation Robin, and most interesting struck a deal with a devil to try and take down the devils daughter Raven. He is a master combat specialist, and of course espionage. He actually was killed but brought back to life by Ravens father in return for a promise to deliver her to him. He was never shown again in the show after he was defeated, and yet he never really died either. You know what that means? He is still at large. Dum dum dummmmmmmmm. Slade is #1.

Our Top 3: Female DC Characters

Chelsea here and I just want to say we are SO sorry for not posting yesterday. We had a long busy day and it totally slipped our minds! But we are going to redeem ourselves today.

Since I have proclaimed my love and appreciation for female comic characters, I am excited about this post. Plus Dylan isn’t going to be putting in his opinion on this topic because he is a sexist pig. No, not really. He just couldn’t come up with three picks so we are just leaving him out.

#3 is Batgirl, which you probably could have guessed because of my apparent Batgirlobsession with Gotham City and everything around it. I have no reason, she doesn’t have outstanding powers. Honestly I just like the idea of a female fighting along side of a male in harmony. It showed a lot of advancement for the females in the time of day it was written. Feminist may not have liked it but I think the story line just works well.

 

#2 After doing our Fan Cast for the Teen Titans, I was really intrigues with Starfire. She’s taking my top two pick for so many reasons. She’s a freaking alien! Not an ugly creepy one, like The Martian Man Hunter, she’s an attractive alien. She has the whole Superman type story because she doesn’t fit in starfire_by_malla13-d4lug0vwith humans but she overcomes it and turns into a hero. Starfire’s relationship with Dick Grayson is also something that caught my eye, because I love Robin. Just the fact that she’s a Teen Titan makes her so adorable for so kick a** at the same time! She converts ultraviolet light and converts in into energy, where she can use the energy to fly. She can also create ‘Starbolts’ with the energy she generates from the sun. So basically she has infinite amounts of power, as long as the sun doesn’t die.

 

#1 Can I get a testament that Wonder Woman is the greatest and most powerful female DC character?! If you know me at all, wonder_woman_by_penichet-d4g0o7lyou know of my love for The Amazonian Princess. Because of Greek Mythological ancestry I immediately grew partial to her. The daughter of Zeus and the blessing of each god and goddess bestowed upon her. She was destined for greatness from the moment she was born. Diana has so many powers I can’t even remember them all. Super strength, agility, super speed up to 60 MPH or more, ESP, astral projection, telepathy (with or without the Mental Radio), and mental control over the electricity in her body. Those are just a few, of course these all varied depending on the comic and the time period. She also has the lasso of truth which is BRILLIANT. How many other super heroes can make their villains tell the truth?? I won’t rant any longer because you’re probably bored already.

 

 

 

 

But there you have it. My top three DC Heroin’s. I really want to know who your favorites are, so don’t be shy to comment and let me know what’s on your mind! Thanks so much for reading!

See ya, BYE! :)

Teen Titans Casting

Okay, I (Chelsea) am going to start this casting off with a disclaimer. Obviously if this movie ever happened, they couldn’t afford to cast all of these actors and actresses for every single part. With that being said we have conducted a dream team to fill the shoes of this teen ago super hero group.

Dylan and I have both picked who we think suits the part. So let’s start off with the main five Titans.

Robin: The acclaimed side kick of Batman and the leader of The Teen Titans. He’s taken his experience of standing along side of one of the greatest heroes and brought together his own team, showing off amazing leadership. The dark headed hero was one of the easiest for us to cast. Chelsea- I chose Logan Lerman because of his dark wispy hair and his performances in Percy Jackson, Perks of Being a Wallflower and many others he has proved he is capable of playing any role. Dylan- I chose Zac Efron because he has already lead a team to victory (High School Musical), he has the boyish looking profile, and has proven that he can take on any role (Charlie St Cloud, The Lucky One, New Years Eve, etc). Below you see Lerman on the left and Efron on the right.

Robin-teen-titans-11301993-431-500logan-lerman-imagezfndsf

Cyborg: Cyborg is a wise cracking…well cyborg. He is half robot, and half human but all beast. He is second in command of the Titans and also serves as the equipment and combat specialist. He is a fun-loving, sarcastic wise crack to his fellow titans, but when it comes to their foes, he turns his arm into a photon cannon and… it was over before it even started. While our choices aren’t close to the size of the picture you’ll see below, we are choosing these actors based on a more realistic depiction of the character; one that does not rely on CGI. Dylan- I picked Michael B. Jordan because he is a wise crack in nearly all of his movies, showing his ability to be that “wise guy” practical jokester role. He has co-starred in great action films such as Red Tails and most recently Chronicle, and his athletic physique, showcased in Friday Night Lights, makes him perfect. Chelsea- Tristan Wilds famous for his role on 90210, where he plays lacrosse and on the surf team. He’s quick off the draw and a perfect match, physically for the robotic hero. Below you see Jordan on the left and Wilds on the right.

Cyborg-teen-titans-boys-11493882-550-450mikebjweb4482249f7

Starfire: Starefire is an interesting character. For starters, she is an alien; this is a fun concept because she is easily fascinated and entertained by “Earth concepts”. She is a bit of a dits, has a thing for Robin, and can pack a punch by flying and shooting green plasma darts at her enemies. Dylan- I’m going with Ariana Grande (our first dip into the Nick/Disney pool). She already has the red hair, while it could use some length, and with her latino background has the perfect skin color. Mix in the fact she is use to, and totally kills it, playing a dits in Victorious and boom you have Starfire. Chelsea- I picked the original beauty, Dakota Fanning to play the alien that goes by Starfire. Dakota has starred in sooooo many movies and she’s so young. So the pressure of playing such an iconic role would be a breeze. If you doubt her ability, check her out in Push, where she plays a young girl with the ability to see the future. Below you see Grande on the left and Fanning on the right.

Raven: Raven is a weird one to explain. She is a witch, kinda both ways. She practices magic, and uses it to her advantage in battles. She tends to get annoyed really easily and it isn’t rare for her to bite someones head off (not literally). She kind of keeps to herself, adding a certain mystery to her which makes this a hard decision. Dylan- That being said I’m going with Chloe Grace Moretz. My reasoning behind this is simple, Moretz can kick butt in.. well “Kick-A**” but what’s more is that she has taken the role of Carrie. Carrie can kind of go hand in hand with Raven, but Raven actually knows how to use her powers. Talk about scary right there. Chelsea- For the dark and mysterious Raven, I’ve decided to go with the quirky and always endearing Ellen Page. Pretty much every part she has ever had in any film, she has been an out cast. Which makes me think that Raven’s demeanor would be easy for her to capture. Plus, she’s sarcastic and brutally honest. Below you see Moretz on the left and Page on the right.

untitledtumblr_mhx8tgpsk81qbww9xo1_500ellen-page-2013

Beast Boy: Gotta love beast boy. Let me say first that Beast Boy kinda epitomizes childhood. For one, he is in fact an adolescent by definition, but what kid hasn’t wanted to turn into an animal? Well BB has the ability to turn into whatever one he wants. He is also a really fun guy, and always looking for new ways to have fun. Whether it be pissing Raven off, or pigging out with Cyborg, BB was my childhood hero. Dylan- I chose Jake T. Austin because he holds every quality I just explained. In his roles in Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board and Wizards of Waverly Place he plays a kid who just wants to eat and have fun! Bonus, I think he scary resembles Beast Boy. Chelsea- Before I tell you who I am picking for Beast Boy, I must express my distaste for Dylan’s choice. Jake T. Austin is in no way qualified for this role and I think his acting abilities will never be any better than what we have seen on Disney. Rant over. Thank you. Now I have chosen Freddie Highmore for the fun loving Beast Boy. Granted he has out grown all those sill characters he used to play, like The Spider Which Chronicles… and has moved onto really great things like The Bates Motel. I think he could make the character a lot of fun and very entertaining with his awkwardness. Below you see Austin on the left and Highmore on the right.

Aqualad: Now is when we start getting out of the main 5. Aqualad is basically just like your boy Aquaman just younger. He can communicate with underwater life, and also swim incredibly fast. So, lets see here… Dylan- Is there a more perfect match in this post than Taylor Lautner I’d be hard pressed to find one. For one, they have the same skin tone. Two they both have that boyish charm. And the coup de tat, Lautner starred as Sharkboy in Sharkboy vs. Lavagirl. Need I say more? Chelsea- I am personally very disinterested in Aqualad as a character, I think he is about as relevant as a fish itself. But I also agree Taylor Lautner looks almost perfect for the part. So we have the same idea here.

tt___aqualad_by_glee_chan-d56pyd0taylor-lautner-2013-vanity-fair-oscar-party-03

Speedy: No, despite what his name implies he has nothing to do with speed. Speedy is actually another variation of the Green Arrow. The only real difference is Speedy has more leadership qualities, and doesn’t rely on only his bow and arrow for his weapon of choice. I’m going with a name you probably won’t recognize, but you’ll remember once I mention what he was in. Dylan- Daryl Sabara *insert obligatory “WHO?!?!?!?!” here* you may remember him as Juni Cortez from Spy Kids. He always displayed talent even at a young age, and the 3rd movie was basically centered around him, giving him a chance to display his leadership. Which is why he gets to portray to timid Speedy. Chelsea- my casting for Speedy is someone who played another hero in another movie. X-men First Class’ Banshee, played by Caleb Landry Jones. He’s got the red hair and the super hero experience. Below you see Sabara on the left and Jones on the right.

Speedy-teen-titans-boys-11496376-272-450Daryl+Sabara+Special+Screening+Universal+Pictures+fADc9sWESKkxCaleb%20Landry%20Jones1

Mas Y Menos: *sigh* I just smile getting to say those words. Mas Y Menos are very interesting. For one the Spanish phrase “mas y menos” translates to “more or less” and this tandem is definitely more, but they have to be touching! These guys are always smiling and happy and just trying to have fun ( even though most no one can understand them) and they have the power of super speed but as I said earlier; they have to be touching. Dylan- I’m going with Dylan and Cole Sprouse because for one, I can’t come up with many twins (Haha good luck with that Chelsea!) but these guys are always having fun in their Suite Life series, make em learn Spanish and they’ll fit right in. Chelsea- well Dylan, you did take the obvious choice because there aren’t very many twin actors in the industry… BUT I do have a little something up my sleeve. You may recognize there two guys from Cheaper By The Dozen or you may recognize them from Desperate House Wives. Either way they are the only other twin boy set out there so the Kinsman twins are my pick. Below you see the Sprouse twins on the top and the younger and older Kinsman twins on the bottom.

Jericho; Jericho is another odd one. First of all how he dresses… ummm.. Second he is mute, meaning he don’t got nothing to say. Third, and most interesting, he can possess any living thing that makes eye contact with him, Crazy right?! Dylan- Know who else is crazy? Michael Cera is. Topped off with curly blond hair like Jericho, the thought of Cera not being able to talk cracks me the frick up. Chelsea- I don’t really like my own pick for this character, but he is the only person I could think of that suits the physical appearance. It’s crazy to imagine Austin Butler playing this role because I think it could be transformed into something really amazing. his powers are beyond belief and I would love to see Butler test his limits with the role though. If you aren’t familiar with his name, maybe Zoey 101 will ring a bell? Below you see Bleaker… I mean Cera on the left and Butler on the right.

Jericho-jericho-from-teen-titans-31761487-680-594Michael+Ceravanessa-hudgens-austin-butler-holiday-party-couple-02

Terra: Now we are getting into the villains. While Terra wasn’t necessarily a villain, she wasn’t necessarily a Titan either. She likes to play. Play the field of good and evil. And play with poor Beast Boys heart to gain advantage for Slade ( more on that later). She has the ability to control rocks, including riding on the rocks and hurling them at her enemies. Which kind of reminds me of the Earth Benders from Avatar. She is kinda sarcastic, and fun to hang around at first which helps with her and Beast Boys chemistry. Dylan- When I think of a young blond girl who is funny, sarcastic, and knows how to have a good time one actress ticks out in my mind; Nick’s Jeanette McCurdy. She is always making up some brilliant insult in her shows iCarly and Sam and Cat. Also always looking for more ways to have fun, er- get into trouble. You don’t want to piss her off cause she’ll go nuts on you, kinda like Terra. Chelsea- For the female antagonist of the story, I casted Amanda Seyfried who blew me away in the new depiction of Red Riding Hood. I personally thought the movie was going to be corny, but the whole thing was amazing all because of her. She has the capability of being such a great actress and I would love to see her play a bad guy. Below you see McCurdy on the left and Seyfried on the right.

Jinx: Next we got Jinx who lives up to the expectation of her name. Her main power is to bring people bad luck, but can also hit you with pink laser ribbons. She is always flirting with Robin with leads to a little rivalry with Starfire. She eventually sees the light and joins the Titans on their quest to save everyone, after her long stint with the H.I.V.E. (more on that as well later). Dylan- For jinx I pick fun-loving Anna Sophia Robb because she is always smiling! Jinx likes bringing bad luck, it makes her happy so she is always smiling. Robb has done great jobs in her movies form Bridge to Tarabithea and suspenseful Soul Surfer. She would be perfect for the role. Chelsea- Jinx is such a great character and after see the eldest Fanning playing so many versatile roles, I think I could totally see her younger sister pulling off Jinx. Elle Fanning has my vote for this mischievous character. Below you see Robb on the left and Fanning on the right.

Jinx_Daniel-Martinez-CelisAnna_Sophia_Robb+April_02_2011window-11

Brother Blood: This guy is messed up. He started this thing called the H.I.V.E. which is basically a school for teenagers to teach them how to be bad, and how to defeat the Titans. While it resembles a cult, he is kind of the pastor If you will. Eventually he catches some bad luck and loses half of his body, causing him to go all Cyborg on us and turn half his body into a robot. Dylan- I went with Donald Sutherland on this one because he has demonstrated his ability to play a controlling head honcho as President Snow in The Hunger Games, and has the look of said Blood with his white hair and facial hair. Chelsea- Well everyone is going to find this strange but I’m picking George Clooney for Brother Blood. I don’t know why but I think they physically resemble one another far too much. It’s a perfect match for me. Below you see Sutherland on the left and Clooney on the right.

3198468-brother_bloodimagesCAAAF21Xgeorge-clooney-2

Slade- That’s right, the big one. The guy who is a genius, master martial artist, brilliant strategist, and apparent magical connections. He is the main antagonist to the Titans and is currently the only villain still at large. He is sadistic and maniacal pitting Terra, and at one point even Robin against the Titans. Dylan- I got the baddest of all bad A’s to play the most mysterious, and still at large villain of the Titans; Jason Freaking Statham. Ok, so his idle name isn’t freaking but it might as well be! This guy had all the moves, and just carrys that “i’m a boss, and I don’t care” persona wherever he goes. Couple that with his recent blockbuster roles for being said bad A, and you got the best…..Bad-A. Chelsea- Finally we have come to the end. For Slade I have also casted some one that most people would never think of. But here is the thing, most men haven’t appreciated James Franco for the amazing actor he his because they don’t understand his mind. He’s so dedicated to any role, like Johnny Depp he stays in character for the duration of the filming to guarantee he is on top of his game every shot. So for him to play a villain would be magical. Not that his Green Goblin performance was less than that, it was just an early performance for him. He has come a long way. Below you see Statham on the left and Franco on the right.

Well after this long drooling process has come to an end, I (Chelsea) can barley come up with the words to create an ending. I hope we didn’t leave out any of your favorite characters, but if we did… forgive us! It was very difficult to narrow it down to the ones we ended up choosing! Let us know what you think!

See ya, BYE! :)

 

The Unsung Heroes of the DC Universe

Dylan here, doing my first ever solo post (woot woot!) Pretty excited and have a unique post I want to dive into!

Sure, they don’t have any super powers. They may not even be incredibly strong or fast. But this list of people are not only fun characters throughout the DC universe, but they support and lift up the heads of our favorite heroes when they need it the most. Lets get this thing started.

 

#3 Lois Lane. I feel like every time a do a top 3 my #3 is a WTF pick. Yes Lois Lane, the lover of Superman cracks the top 3. Superman_T_A_S_Lois_and_SupermanWhen she first learns of Clark Kent’s alter ego she is understandably startled and confused, but all the while she remains supportive. As time goes on she starts to get a feel for what its like having one of Earths most powerful heroes at her beckon call, I can imagine it is fun. Others find out about their relationship and try to take her for hostage, or bait to lure Superman but of course that just pisses him off even more. She is his inspiration, his muse, and his support system. Behind every successful man is a supportive woman, and its no different for ole Kal-El. Lois Lane lands numero tres,

 

#2 Commisioner Gordon. This one is a little unfair because Gordon is a boss in his own right. 03I mean for one he is a commissioner of the Gotham (one of the most crime riddled cities) police force. He isn’t  afraid to get his hands dirty having roughed up Joker and some other baddies. But what puts him on the unsung list is how he assists the caped crusader. Gordon is a friend to the bat, when many are scared of him at first. He helps him form strategies and is his man on the inside. When it comes down to it the Commish has Wanes back and sometimes that exactly what he needs.

 

#1 Alfred Pennyworth. First off let me just say that I believe Michael Caine performed Alfred_batman_tashis role as Alfred in the Dark Knight Trilogy perfectly, to the T, and spot on. Right down to the British accent. Alfred has cared for “Master Bruce” ever since he was just a young lad. He has seen his highest of high’s as a billionaire and his lowest of lows wanting to throw in the towel. Against all odds Alfred always encourages Bruce to does what is right, to continue to rid the city of crime. In the third movie we see a glimpse of how much Alfred truly cares about Bruce. Beaten, battered, and broken Alfred pleads with Bruce to finally hang it up, because he cannot stand the idea of having to witness his demise. When he realizes Bruce is going to follow through on his final mission, Alfred turns in his resignation and utters the words, “Goodbye Master Bruce.”

 

 

 

There ya have it. 3 inexplicable qualities that make these 3 individuals who they are. Inspiration, Back-up, and Encouragement. All traits that our heroes need instilled in them, and all traits that these 3 unsung heroes bring. Heres to you “Master Alfred”.

Got a different take on the unsung heroes? Or different unsung heroes? Leave a comment so we can talk about it with you!

See ya, BYE! :)

Our Top 3: Male DC Characters

Dylan here! Sorry for our weekend hiatus! Busy weekend, we probably won’t post on most weekends and will do a bulk of our posts during the week. Give ya something to look forward to.

As you can see we are transition to DC on our top 3 lists. If there is anything that you all would like us to write about, or give our insight on then feel free to leave a comment! Ok, back to Chels, you’ll hear more from me in a minute!

Well, we are at it again. Ranking our favorite Male DC Heroes. You should just know now that we are pretty partial to Marvel, so this was a little harder for us. And we typed this previously but right before posting it, it was all erased… so if you catch some bitterness in our typing…

Chelsea here, kicking off my list with…

#3 nun a nun a nun a nuna blah blah blah… BATMAN! I’ll make this short and sweet, I am only picking this millionaire because I love his batman_solitude_by_garang76-d2zs9dpback story and his villains and everyone else surrounding Gotham City. Really, the only reason I am picking any of the guys I am about to pick are because of their backstory. Batman is a pansy if you ask me, he just pays people to make his weaponry and takes all the credit to himself. He has no real powers or talents. His wealth wasn’t even earned himself, it was passed down to him. Now before you jump down my throat and say he was trained in martial arts by those cult type people, I would commend him for that if he actually used it. BUT he doesn’t. Instead he throws Batarangs at the bad guys and then throws them in jail instead of taking care of them the right way. I will say that he does have a soft heart for orphaned children, like himself, that I appreciate.

 

#2 with that being said, I bring in my number two pick. untitledThe Boy Wonder himself! Robin! The original one that is, because if you know anything about Robin you know that there has been over five different people, male and female, assume the role of Robin. Again I’m a sucker for his backstory as well as his ending. Dick Grayson’s acrobatic family travels in a circus, where his parents are tragically killed by a gangster for no apparent reason. Bruce investigates the case and discovers the orphaned child, ultimately gaining custody of him and training him to be Robin. He then fights along side of the Gotham vigilante until he heads off to college, where he then proclaims a name for himself as Nightwing.

#1 I bet you can guess what comes next, Nightwing. I know that is kind of cheating because it’s the same person, but I’m going to classify ds;lfknhim separately because he passes down his role as Robin to Jason Todd. While Nightwing or Robin don’t have any real powers of their own, they do both have incredibly stealth acrobatic moves that set them apart from the competition, as well as their mentor. I just love Nightwings story because he overcame his fate and stepped out of Batman’s shadows to become his own hero. Now that deserves a movie, don’t you think?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s see who Dylan comes up with now! Let me guess… Flash, Batman andddd… Aquaman? Hahaha totally kidding on that last one!

Isn’t she just so loving? Ok guys, I’m about to shock the world here again. I’m not gonna be totally cliché, nor am I gonna center my post around all things Batman *cough cough*^^^^^ Growing up I wasn’t as entranced with the DC universe as my friends, thus my knowledge and passion for Marvel. While I know enough about the characters the void of DC in my childhood was filled by Cartoon Network. (Yes, Cartoon Network) Don’t laugh because these guys are pretty cool in their own right, but these three underrated, and oft underappreciated individuals and groups hold a special place in my heart.

#3 Static. “WHO?!?!?!??!?!??!!???????!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!” Static. You know! Static shock, Virgil Hawkins? No? Well that’s what I’m here for. 2665579-static_shock_header_610x450Virgil Hawkins a simple kid with a knack for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. His town of Dakota, riddled with gang activity, was in the middle of a gang war. Virgil was trying to stop his friend when a reaction happened causing a mutagenic gas explosion giving Virg, and all the gang bangers powers. Seeing that his peers had many negative ideas for how to test their new abilities, Virgil became Static to stop all of the “bang babies”. Using his powers to harness and fashion electricity he surfs through the sky on a sewage manhole cover, projects electric jolts, moves objects and people with his bare hands! He isn’t your typical Superman, but his good will and unique super powers snuck into a special place in my heart.

 

#2 Batman…….Beyond. Batman Beyond as in Terry McGinnis. Where Virgil was a good boy just trying to make things right, Terry was an 120557-batman-batman-beyondangry teenager bent on ending the crime in Gotham that took his own fathers life. Le me set the mood here. 2019 Bruce Wayne is has a new suit, and has severed his ties with all of his former allies and foes. He now is just your everyday vigilante when he answers a damsel in distress call. During this he suffers a small heart attack and says to himself “Never again.” and decides to hang it up. 2039 17 year old Terry stumbles upon the batcave and sleek bat suit after learning of his fathers death at the hands of Jokerz. Under the mentoring of Wayne, with his sleek suit, his futuristic gadgets and motorcycle he starts to slowly dwindle the crime of Gotham. Along the way he makes new foes of his own (Blight, Shriek, Stalker, Jokerz, etc.) and encounters some old “friends” of Wayne (Bane, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow, and of course The Joker) Terry is a Bad A, which makes Batman Beyond all the more awesome.

#1 Teen Titans…….GO! I know, its a group….AND it’s not the Justice League. Bare with me here.2671168-Teen_Titans_2

While they don’t have the manpower, resources, or even experience of the JL. That makes them even more underrated these are TEENS! Led by Robin, who knows a thing or two about this super hero thing, the TT’s have a very diverse group. Cyborg, Beast boy, Raven, Starfire, Thunder and Lightning, Hotspot, Aqualad, Mas Y Menos, etc, etc, etc the list goes on! Couple that with the revamped Deathstroke as Slade, Robin gone rogue as the AWESOME Red-X, and the cult type villainhood that is The Hive and The Teen Titans just continue to impress. Teen Titans go, right to #1,

Mortal Kombat vs. DC

Chelsea here, with some Mortal Kombat ranting! I haven’t the slightest idea when the news for this video game was released but I just stumbled across the character photos and I was mind blown. Not only do the Mortal Kombat characters look great but they did the DC characters justice as well. I think the title of the blog gives away the title of the game. Mortal Kombat vs. DC is in stores now! This is a remake of a game if I am thinking correctly and looks pretty cool from what I saw. If you’ve played it or own it let me know what you think of it! If you want some more information on the game head over to www. worldscollide.com and check it out.

Now let’s bask in the glory of graphic animation…

So to start off the DC world we have Superman and his antagonist Lex Luthor, actually looking cooler than ever.

And the notoriously creepy Joker, along side of his favorite person to bully, Batman himself.

Here we have the most commonly known DC women, Wonder Woman and Cat Woman.

These guys who look virtually the same. Shazam on the left and The Flash on the right. Who ever created these guys were obviously oblivious to the fact they look exactly alike.

Lastly we see, in order from left to right, Dark Seid, Deathstroke and The Green Lantern.

I couldn’t start off the MK side with out the most common enemies, Sub-Zero and Scorpion.

The Dark Night Legacy

A fan made trailer has surfaced on Youtube, tying up some loose strings from the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. If you saw the movies you know of the confusion Nolan left us all with.

1. We all wanted to know if Batman was dead. He flies off into the ocean with an atomic bomb, we see it explode but with not enough clarification to see if he ejects himself in time.

2. Then if that wasn’t confusing enough, we see Albert on his vacation, looking into the distance and there across the floor we see Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle herself. Earlier in the movie Albert told Bruce Wayne of this fantasy, so we don’t know if this is Albert imagining this or if they are actually there in flesh.

3. To top all of that off we have Joseph Gordan-Levitt’s character. Through the movie Batman is mentoring him and challenging him to embrace his inner hero, then they throw in the fact his middle name is Robin. (Kind of corny…) But it made us want a Robin movie! Or at least a little scene at the end to let us know he was carrying on as Robin, Nightwing or Batman himself.

Altogether the movie left us assuming, which I personally hated. So check out this fan made trailer and see what their depiction of events looks like!

See ya, BYE! :)
