I am usually a stickler for articulation in action figures — the more the merrier, except in one case: Michael Keaton’s Batman must never turn his head. Thankfully Hot Toy’s latest figure sticks to this rule, by replacing the usual neck articulation with... poseable eyeballs? Man, figures are weird. »
Over the years, Superman’s power-level has fluctuated rapidly, as writers have given and taken away some of the Man of Steel’s abilities in order to embolden or humanise him.

Thanks to The Flash TV series, you’re already familiar with a few of the Scarlet Speedster’s most iconic villains, the criminal group known as the Rogues. But not even a show as delightfully silly as The Flash can really convey just how bizarre the comic book versions of the Rogues are. Here’s a field guide to the… »
In the DC TV universe that Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim have created with Arrow and The Flash, we’ve all been waiting for two events: For Oliver and Felicity to finally do it, and for Harrison Wells to be reveal his true identity to the Flash and his friends. It’s been a very good week for fans. »
It would be a fairly light week if DC hadn’t come to drop another humongous wave of Convergence comics on our collective heads, but that’s not all to the latest comics. Scifi thriller Pisces kicks off the story of a war veteran entrusted with First Contact, and there’s aliens on the run, Spider-Verses and more! »
Jared Leto’s prison-tattooed version of the Joker made a big splash the other day — but a radically transformed Joker is nothing new. Batman’s most iconic foe has undergone many revamps, reimaginings, updates and interpretations over the past 75 years. Here’s the complete history of the ever-changing face of the Joker. »
This... this will not end well. DC comics has just announced that Frank Miller, one of comics’ greatest creators who has since devolved into one of the comics’ world’s weird crazy uncles, is creating a third volume in the saga he began with The Dark Knight Returns, to be titled The Dark Knight: The Master Race. »
DC Comics path towards a female-friendly image has been rocky to say the least — but it’s taken some great steps forward with the surge of popularity in comics like Batgirl and Gotham Academy. Now they want to take it a little further with a new initiative that highlights their female heroes. »
In a industry of endless variant figures, I was honestly kind of surprised that Harleen Quinzel, the Psychiatrist that becomes Harley Quinn, has never had an action figure before — and yet, 23 years after her début, here we are: the toy for people who prefer craziness in a lab coat rather than a harlequin’s outfit.
And before I reveal this mystery, remember that I am 100% a fan of this show — one who has unequivocally enjoyed the show since its mid-season return. Ready? The mystery is this: Why do I love this show so much when the characters are often so damn dumb? »
This week, Kaptara, a zany space adventure that we are very excited about, begins! There’s another batch of DC’s Convergence titles, and Marvel hyping up Age of Ultron via comics. But that’s not all for this week — there’s the escapades of Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace, and a comic about a sentient, foul-mouthed gun »
As Gotham approaches the end of its inaugural season, the show seems determined to go from guilty pleasure to interminable slog, Last night’s episode, “Under the Knife,” in particular is without mystery, without surprise, without fun, without artistry, and almost entirely without nuance. »
I mean, come on, Gotham. You already lean into the most batshit awfulness/greatness that you can, where’s my Jada Pinkett-Smith action figure, complete with self-eye-gouging action? Oh fine, I guess I’ll have to wait.
It’s finally here — the first HD footage of the clash between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. We’ve already watched the HD version a half dozen times, but now it’s time to pore over GIFs and screencaps, to catch every detail and all the insane drama. Here’s everything we spotted!

Oh, Revolution. We lamented its squandered potential after its abrupt demise last year — but it looks like there might be some small chance of the series delivering what little intriguing premise it had left.
