Taken from Planetary: Crossing Worlds, Batman finds himself unaware of dimensional shifts, hence why we see the Frank Miller Batman and not a different incarnation of the Dark Knight. It’s too appropriate as Elijah Snow, leader of Planetary, is surprised to find that the Batman from a moment ago (the 60’s Adam West Batman!) is now a hulking, seasoned veteran version of the Caped Crusader. Planetary is an exceptional series, and as WildStorm is a part of the 52 worlds of the DCU, I suggest checking it out. Planetary is…

Peter Tomasi has previously said that Carrie Kelley is sticking around the main DC continuity but neither he nor DC would confirm if she will be the new Robin. While he of course wouldn't reveal if she is going to be the new Robin, Tomasi sat down with Newsarama to talk about his experiences with Carrie, if Bruce will recruit a new sidekick, if there was any hesitation in bringing her into the New 52, and what Bruce thinks about her, amongst other things.

The second installment of the animated film version of Frank Miller’s famed graphic novel picks up right where we left off and hits the ground running. The media sensationalism continues to give the viewer a better sense of the world Batman is reemerging in. The animators have clearly kept it in the ‘80’s as Reagan is President, as he is the graphic novel. Superman’s role is incredibly similar to the way in which Nixon uses Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen. Funnily enough, both…

If you remember all the way back to September of last year you will probably recall I was not at all positive about The Dark Knight Returns Part One. In my opinion it suffered all the myriads that can make an animated film terrible: bad acting, terrible animation, clunky dialogue and awful music. And I did not have high hopes for part two. The clips I had seen of part 2 had not impressed me at all and…

Editor's Note: The following article is a new segment for The Batman Universe. It is meant to be a take on how the Joker would react to the real world outside of the DC Universe and current events. The article is also darker because it is in fact coming from the perspective of one of the darkest characters in The Batman Universe. Viewer discretion is advised.
Greeting Bat-babies, it’s you dear old Uncle Joker here. So you are probably wondering what on earth I am doing here. Well I’ve…
