The Truth about 1991:

Robin’s series came out in 1993 but 1991 was the first appearance of Robin’s own title. In 1991 it was a miniseries and would spawn 2 more miniseries and the ongoing 183 issue series I wrote about.

Now for 2 Truths/1 Lie. The year is 1992:

  • Batman The Animated Series premiered as well as a tie-in comic book series based in the same world. The TV series would last for a total of 109 episodes and the comic titled The Batman Adventures would last 36 issues before being reborn under a different title.
  • Guy Gardner got his chance to shine in Green Lantern: Mosaic. The first issue saw Gardner presiding over Oa. The planet was divided into sections, each with a different race, atmosphere, and gravity. Although the title had many possibilities, it was short-lived and only lasted 18 issues.
  • DoomsDay made his debut. On page 22 of Superman: The Man of Steel #17, an issue where Superman took on a league of freak mutations, readers first saw their glimpse of Doomsday’s fist as it punched a wall.

Gotham premiered last night. What did yall think?
Personally when I first heard about Gotham I was thinking more of a normal police drama with Batman never seen but somewhat present and his gallery of criminals giving the cops under Commissioner Gordon’s command a run for their money. So I was slightly disappointment when I heard it was going to be an origin story.
After watching this morning (because I have basically lost my grip on keeping up with a TV schedule) I enjoyed it. I hope that it leans a little more out of the origin of all the characters and get into the meat of something, not just the start of something.

Machinima Lands Exclusive Animated 'Justice League' Series

At some point they are going to make these characters so dark they are actually worse than the psychopaths they fight against.

Edit: I’m sorry. I should be more positive. At least they are making video content, plus Bruce Timm does have a hand in it, which makes things look pretty bright. It’s just I get annoyed by this whole let’s get dark and serious and realistic when that isn’t what makes me like these characters.

Grant Morrison did The Nerdist Podcast and was speaking about how they keep trying to make Superman realistic when it’s ridiculous to do so considering he’s an alien from another planet to start with. I recommend listening to it if you haven’t.

The Truth about 1990:

It was Lobo who protected Miss Tribb in the comedic romp through the outer cosmos. And she WAS his fourth grade teacher, BTW. Deathstroke got his own title the following year.

Speaking of which, Now it’s time for 2 Truths/1 Lie. The year is 1991:

  • Robin got his own title for the first time ever. Tim Drake fired up his sports car named Redbird and started on his own solo career. The series was a success and would last 183 issues before getting a name change and reboot. It also paved way for other titles like Nightwing and Batgirl.
  • Finally after all these years Lois Lane saw Clark Kent for who he really was, Superman. In a land mark issue, a battle with Silver Banshee made Clark realized he need to come clean with his fiancé. So he took off his glasses and opened his shirt up to her.
  • In 1989 and 1990, the miniseries Emerald Darn was such a hit DC released another named Green Lantern: Emerald Dawn II, both of which delved into the past of Hal Jordan. With the first miniseries skimming over Hal’s jail time for a drunk-driving escaped, this six-issue series detailed his prison experience (Orange Is The New Green?). While Hal was in jail, Sinestro, still a Green Lantern, would go on to abuse his power and in the process be dethroned as ruler of his home world and evicted from the GLC.

I love this art.

Over the past couple of years I’ve gotten a collection of heroes and villains. And now finally have a place to display them. Any advice on how to keep them standing?

The Truth about 1989:

It was actually the pages of the Suicide Squad that introduced Barbara Gordon as Oracle. (Several of you knew this, good job!)

Now for 2 truths/1 lie. The year is 1990!!!!!

  • An older Hal Jordan began an impressive 181 issue run on the 3rd series called Green Lantern. Not much happened in the first issue though and the only action was a fight between Hal and Guy.
  • Robin got a new costume. They traded in his pixie boots and short shorts for ninja toe boots and long green tights. He also got a black cape with a yellow lining possibly to blend in better in the dark.
  • Deathstroke, notable villain in Teen Titans, became an anti-hero in his own comic book. His first issue found him escorting Miss Tribb, his fourth-grade teacher. He had to resist his impulse to kill those from his youth who brought him misery and protect Tribb in a comedic romp through the country side.

What if Batman’s parents aren’t dead?

The Truth about 1988:

Pete Ross wasn’t the Smallville resident who was spying for the Manhunters. It was really Lana Lang.

Now it’s time for 2 Truths/1 Lie. The year is 1989:

  • Less than a year after the readers killed Jason Todd off, DC introduced Tim Drake, in a story called “Year Three”. In a story called “A Lonely Place of Dying”, Tim deduced both Batman and Nightwing’s identities and earn his pixie boots.
  • Barbara Gordan’s career as a super hero wasn’t over after Joker had shot her. In the pages of The Secret Six, she first appeared as Oracle, an informational guru, specializing in the hero set.
  • Coming out of the pages of Justice League International, a set of Superheroes made camp in Paris in the pages of Justice League Europe. The team was made up of Red Rocket, the Flash, Power Girl, Metamorpho, Captian Atom, and Elongated Man. Animal Man and Wonder Woman were temporary members.
