Editor Note:I know this is late but hey better late than never. Also there will be SPOILERS in the “review” if you have not seen it for the tenth time so be warned. 

 The last movie in the trilogy and the last one Christoper Nolan (he has done an amazing job) is directing, is the movie going to end with a bang or poof. After 8 years in hiding, Bruce wayne needs to don the suit again to save the people of Gotham from a new enemy that rose out of the darkness. Sometimes legends must die.

The next game up in Time sink is Gotham City Impostors

After watching the trailer, I am sure you can guess the main idea of the game. People dressing up as either Batman or Joker running around killing each other. I really want to play this game and when it was re-released as a F2P game I jumped on it

This weeks issue of the weekly review is big! The Night is here, How is Batman going to handle the Court of Owls and its many Talons? We learn more about Dick and his connection to Talon. The war between Xmen vs the Avengers still rages on and it is starting to pick up steam, Green Arrow is trying to join the Justice League. And we also get a glimpse into the future of Batman, Superman and the Justice League in Batman Beyond Unlimited.  Because I missed last week issue, I also have Green Lantern with Hal Jordan and Sinestro’s  fight against the Indigo Tribe.

The birth of the Joker

Created by Jerry Robinson who passed away pretty recently, December 7  2011. He gave birth to one character that would define the Batman and make him what he is today. I believe as a character Batman was always on the edge of doing the right thing or totally losing it and start killing people. This is why the Joker exists, to some what keep an insane man sane. This review I will be talking three books, two on the Joker and One about the death of the Batman. Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke, Joker by Brian Azzarello and What ever Happened to the Caped Crusader?

This is the latest movie from DC to be straight to blu-ray. The movie focuses on the Justice League (as you can tell from the title) and Batman. The story is taken from the graphic novel JLA: Tower of Babel. First off, I have not read the book or the wikipedia summary of the book and must say after reading the summary my outlook of the movie has changed drastically, for the worse.

First off the Justice league is made up of seven members Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman and Martin Manhunter. Not having one of the founding members of the JLA (Aquaman) in the movie is a bad way to start but considering the fact that before the New 52 Aquaman was not really that well liked, this is something I can over look. That aside lets start with the review of the movie

Court of the owls and Talon

The Court's deadly assassin

Talon.

One of the new villains introduced in the new 52, the fighting skills he has seems to be on par with the Batman. When the owls were first introduced into Batman #2 (man it feel strange from me to talk about comic issues like I have a huge collection but it is slowly growing) it was said that they were in Gotham for a long time and have bases in all of the Wayne’s building. The sheer fact that Batman did not find it or could prove they existed before this is mind blowing. Batman is know to plan ahead he is not two or three steps ahead, he is fifty steps ahead. He prepares for any possibleThe Batman or outcome as well as making sure that the battle will turn in his favour on a drop of a dime.

In the up coming issues, Bruce is putting out a call to the bat family to help him in the fight against the owls. Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, Batwing, Catwoman, the Birds of Prey, Red Robin and Redhood are going to be going up against the court of owls. It will be interesting than Jason, the Redhood is coming to Gotham to “help” Bruce against this.

In the end I hope that Talon and the court do not die off after this fight because I know it is cause chaos and rip Gotham apart. Think about this, the first time Joker went up against the Batman and failed he tried to run away. He tripped and fell on his knife, watching this Batman and Robin left him to die but a police officer arrived on right after they left and called him an ambulance. The Joker was supposed to die right then and there, but instead the editor changed his mind and deiced to tell him live. Can you imagine the Batman with the Joker? (guaranteed Gotham might have been better off but the Batman would not be who he is without the Joker)
