DC Comics had some fun in honor of the Blood Moon eclipse that occurred last night. DC has released one of their patented teasers for The New 52: Future’s End, the company’s next weekly series, set to launch May 7, 2014.
As you can see from the image below, you can get a hint of what Jeff Lemire, Brian Azzarello, Dan Jurgens, and Keith Giffen have planned for their universe spanning tale, including big parts for Batman Beyond and Grifter. Also, is that Tim Drake in his original costume in the upper left hand corner, hanging out with Booster Gold?
Take a look at the image below and let us know if you’re looking forward to The New 52: Future’s End.
Earlier this week, sources in Vatican City revealed that the Catholic Church has long been unhappy with DC Comics’ use of the term “Caped Crusaders” to describe comic book heroes Batman and Robin. The contention is apparently based on actual historical figures that were the original caped crusaders, the Knights Templar.
The Catholic Church, which boasts an estimated 1.2 billion followers, has decided to produce documents from the period of the Crusades that contain period art showing the Knights with their capes and cloaks. Additionally, tapestries and other art pieces have long been known to exist, but nothing was ever done about it. Their argument states that if anyone has the right to be known as such, it should be the warriors who risked life and limb to protect travelers.
When I hear the word “sidekick,” the first one my mind immediately imagines is the ludicrously dressed, teenage companion of Batman. That’s right, Dick Grayson, the original Robin. And I’m sure you all initially think the same thing. But some sidekicks move way beyond their roles as mere comrades or wingmen; some sidekicks have the potential to become leaders themselves.
Check out the list below of the Top 5 Sidekicks Who Could be Heroes.

Batman is one of the greatest superheroes the world has ever known. He’s a brilliant detective and a master at kicking ass and looking awesome while doing it all. He has encountered a rogues gallery of freaks, monsters, psychos, and other devious criminal minds who would make Hannibal Lecter soil his britches. But for some reason he just can’t seem to get a handle on playing video games. In fact, they tend to make him irrationally angry, as you’ll see in this clever short video The Dark Knight Rages put together by the little comedic geniuses at Crave Online.

If you’ve ever wanted to see Batman and his youthful ward in crimefighting Robin attempt to bond over a hearty round of Xbox 360 that degenerates into an all-out brutal smackdown with Robin wondering out loud why his suit has nipples, then you have come to the right place. This vid features a lot of references to Batman movies and TV shows past and present, but come on Bats, that whole “my parents are dead” bit will only excuse so much in life.
