How can I begin to describe the final installment of the Dark Knight trilogy? Well, let’s just get started.
With our returning cast members Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman; Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox; Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon; and Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, we are immediately reminded why we venture into the darkness of Christopher Nolan’s Gotham.

Alright, we’re approaching the end of Batman vs. Superman. This is the last half Bat boys and girls. This time around, we’ll be reviewing the Justice League of America novel Tower of Babel. Written by the incomparable Mark Waid, who is best known for his legendary run of the Flash which revitalized the character and created Bart Allen in the process.

Justice League: Doom is the long awaited animated feature based on Mark Waid’s legendary Justice League series entitled, Tower of Babel. For those of you not familiar with the plotline, Batman’s contingency plans for eliminating members of the JLA (in the event that any of them turn evil or be under mind-control) fall into the wrong hands and are implemented.

No. This story is also about the other half of Batman. The law-abiding half. Batman always holds himself to the law and its rules, despite his blatant disregard for vigilantism. Of course, this is in reference to Lieutenant James Gordon. At…
