I never could get DC Universe Online game to load but it's nice to know that there is a new episode out now to play. World of Flashpoint opens a window to an alternate timeline caused by the Flash. This is based on the Flashpoint storyline so expect to see Emperoor Aquaman, Thomas Wayne as Batman and so many others. The DC Universe Online game is still free to play.

Women Wednesday: Spider-Woman Is Out For Blood

To be honest, I haven't been paying any attention to the new Spider-Woman series from Marvel Comics so I decided to pick up #10. The cover is great but I do miss her mostly red costume. The story wraps up the Octavia Vermis storyline.

Batman: The Killing Joke DVD

I saved watching Batman: The Killing Joke dvd for last because I know how controversial the graphic novel is (yes, I have read it). Not only does Batgirl (voiced by Tara Strong) basically get it on with Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy) but she gets shot by the Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill). Commissioner Gordon (voiced by Ray Wise) is kidnapped by the Joker and is stripped naked in an amusement park with some circus freaks serving the Joker. This is one DC Universe animated movie that is definitely not for young kids and it is rated R. I picked up the dvd released in 2016 a few weeks ago with a bunch of others at the local Dollar Tree and I'm glad that I did. One of the special features is the look of Justice League Dark, which I hope to find one day.

Batman Unlimited: Mechs Vs Mutants DVD

Batman Unlimited: Mechs Vs Mutants is the 2015 sequel to Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts, which I have not seen. I found the dvd a few weeks ago at the local Dollar Tree. Batman is voice by Roger Craig Smith while the Joker is voiced by Troy Baker. Other superheroes that appear include Green Arrow, Nightwing, Red Robin and Cyborg while Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Clayface, Scarecrow, Silver Banshee and Solomon Grunddy are other supervillains that appear. This is more kid friendly than the last few animated movies based on characters from DC Comics that I have watched lately. The special feature is the Batman: The Brave & The Bold episode titled "Night of the Batmen".

Freedom Fighters: The Ray DVD

Freedom Fighters: The Ray is a DC Universe animated movie that was originally a web series that started in 2017 and ended in 2018. I picked up the dvd at the local Dollar Tree a few weeks ago and was actually the first one that I watched. It's actually a prequel to Crisis On Earth X, the fourth annual Arrowverse crossover. Russell Tovey is the voice of Ray Terril and the Ray while Melissa Benoist is the voice of Overgirl. The Ray is the first openly gay superhero to star in his own movie so there are some male to male kissing. While I did enjoy seeing Phantom Lady and Doll Man, this just isn't the Freedom Fighters without Uncle Sam. Also, Vibe and Mr. Terrific from Arrow does show up to lend a hand.

Batman: Gotham Knight DVD

Batman: Gotham Knight is a DC Universe two-disc dvd set that I picked up at the local Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. Kevin Conroy is the voice of Batman in all six segments. I was surprised by the appearances of Killer Croc and Deadshot. This direct-to-dvd animated movie was released in 2008 and has a mostly anime feel to it. I did like the four episodes of Batman: The Animated Series but I have yet to watch the Batman and Me: The Bob Kane Story documentary.

Women Wednesday: Batman and Harley Quinn DVD

I picked up a few DC Universe dvds at the local Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. Among them was the Batman and Harley Quinn dvd from 2017. Kevin Conroy is the voice of Batman while Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory's Benadette) is the voice of Harley Quinn. There are plenty of great moments in this animated movie such as Harley seducing Nightwing while she is wearing just her white bra and panties. Yeah, this is more risqué than Batman: The Animated Series. Poison Ivy and Floronic Man appear as the main villains. As a bonus treat, the special feature is a sneak peak at Batman Gotham by Gaslight, which I hope to find on dvd someday.

T-shirt Tuesday: Black Panther Starry T-shirt

I picked up this Black Panther starry t-shirt last week for five dollars on a road trip last Friday. I had to go to a dentist appointment an hour's drive away and I did a little shopping at a much better Walmart's. I would have picked up two but the store only had one in my size. The "stars" are like specks so I could have called this a speckled t-shirt but starry sounds better. The stars are raised so you can feel them. The bad news is that I have to get six crowns.

Countdown to Valentine's Day 2021 Day 12: Batman Valentines With Tattoos

Guess where I picked up this box of Batman Valentines with Tattoos? If you guessed the local Dollar Tree, then you guessed correctly. Sorry, no prizes awarded this time around. There are eight awesome designs for a total of twenty-four Valentine's Day cards. Likewise, the sheet of twenty-four tattoos only have eight different designs. There is also a sheet of red heart stickers. Characters include Batman, Joker and Harley Quinn. The cartoony artwork is diffinately aimed at a younger audience. The Batman Valentines with Tattoos was made in China, imported by Greensrier International, Inc. and distributed by Paper Magic Group in Berwick, PA. There is no copyright date so this could pop back up on the shelves next year.
