Damn. They must not be too impressive if they use the same 7 or 8 for the movies.
 
2012-07-23 09:34:36 PM  
I would hope that villains catalogued for OCD fans would have a spread sheet of actions, wins, losses, deaths, appearances in which issue/series, team ups, and current status. Hell, they do it for Sluggy Frelance.

That can't just be me.

How far back do you want to go? The first issue was in 1940. There's OCD and there's the guy from Se7en levels of psychosis.

1940 is fine with me. I wouldn't want to miss something important.

Is Clock King on there? That's whats important.

What about the bad guys from the batman/scooby-doo crossover cartoons?

I'll respect the next reboot if they go with Calender Man as the main and only villain.

To be fair, in the last 2 Batman trilogies, only the Joker has been a major villain twice. Two-Face counts, but that was more for story arc than him as a villain

I had my basis covered. Catwoman is not really a villain in this last one. Bane is ONLY in TDKR. Yep, he's definitely ONLY in that one....

I know how "real" fans hates the 60s Batman, but with foes like The Clock King, The Glass Man, Calendar Man, The Inventor, and Silver Monkey - just to name a few, how can you take this universe so seriously?

Electrify: The Clock King, The Glass Man, Calendar Man,


I see you that and raise you Polka Dot Man

Abner Krill decided, for reasons unknown, to launch a crime wave based on spots and dots in Gotham City, where he inevitably came into conflict with Batman and Robin, the city's masked protectors. As the fearsome Mister Polka-Dot, he wore a bizarre costume covered in spots, the point of which soon became apparent - once removed from the costume, the spots could be used for a variety of purposes, creating deadly weapons and a bizarre escape vehicle

But no sign of Universo from Brave and the Bold 179.
 
2012-07-24 03:23:46 AM  
Go watch the Brave and the Bold. A lot of Bill Finger-era villains show up. Even Zebra-Man and Kite Man show up. Hell even the Batman of Zurr-En-Arrh show up. The original "Superman of Planet X" version, not the recent "Batman RIP" hallucination.

OK, now that that's settled, where are all the pics of hot chicks cosplaying as Harley Quinn?

Oh, good. Rabbits made is as a sub-category. Otherwise I would be concerned it wasn't complete enough.

They have him under Mr. Zsasz

and um, I'm sure if that was done by someone with OCD, it would have been a little neater. There doesn't seem to be any names that can fit into multiple catagoreies, (Of course I didn't look all that hard) so I'm not sure I understand the purpose of just randomly placing names and connecting them with lines all over the place.

FTFM, there are a few that fit in multiple catagories, still find it a mess though, hard to follow some of the connections

To be fair, he was discounting two face as a minor character in the new movies. Bane was pretty minor in the old ones. He was basically poison ivy's glorified henchman.

It took a while for me to get into it, but it's really a good show. The Christmas episode where red tornado gives him a mug that says "worlds greatest detective" was what did it for me. It's like Adam West modernized and in cartoon form.

I loved that show until the last episode. Then they went way too meta.

I still say they should have brought Billy Dee Williams back as Harvey Dent. He could have been an awesome Two-Face.

I don't mind the Silver Age Batman. There's just a lot of comic book fans of the Bronze and Modern Ages who only want things grim, gritty and/or EXTREME. To them, Batman can only be like he was in 70s and 80s, or like he is now - a closed off, OCD-suffering, borderline asshole. I don't think they realize All Star Batman was basically making fun of the Batman Frank Miller helped make popular, and those fans adore. To me the Silver Age is the last time Batman was treated like an outright superhero, and not someone's pop psychology project.

That's what made the Brave and the Bold TV series so great. He's just a superhero who fights evil and has crazy adventures. He can be the dark Batman of the 1970s or The Animated Series too, I just don't want that Batman 100% of the time.

I don't get why anyone would live in a city like Metropolis, Gotham, New York City, etc. As if pent up city life trapped like a duck in a pen isn't bad enough, some supervillan is always trying to destroy it.

In the comics, Silver Age Batman got very campy in the 60s and 70s. Things got darker in the 80s. Especially with A Death in the Family and The Killing Joke.

The Tim Burton movies weren't campy but gothy. Then Schumacher took over and they became campy again. All sh*tty scripts with lots of neon and fluorescent colors.

Nolan changed all that. Thankfully.

Yup. Bugged me too. They should have just listed the villains on the left, then made categories across the top. Then just checked the boxes according to which category they fit into. A spider diagram for something like this is just confusing as hell.

There's a ton of pretty good lesser-known villains that could be used in Batman movies, that for whatever reason haven't. Blame movie studios looking for marketability I think.

Just to name a few: Calender Man (Long Halloween version, of course), Hush, Hugo Strange, Deadshot, Clayface, Zsasz, Dr. Hurt.....

We also desperately need a live-action Harley Quinn next time Joker is featured in a movie.

It could be worse. You could live in Hub City, the comic book analog to East St. Louis. Their only superhero is the Question, and once he saves you he's going to lecture you on Objectivism for a half hour.

What are you going to do, move to a small town in the country so you can get wiped off the map when a super villain finds out that the hero's alter ego grew up there?
 
2012-07-24 08:43:18 PM  
They missed the Music Meister.

Also, if you don't know him, I highly recommend you watch Batman Brave and The Bold.

I really want the next film to be like a 1960's Batman fighting with Music Meister and Riddler, and sure, bring along Robin, and Batgirl, Or even bring in Black Canary, Catwoman, or Zatanna.

I really wish in TDKR he would have said "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb."
