20.8 Gift Ideas for DC Universe Heroes and Villains

It's crunch time, folks! The holidays are right upon us and we've been so busy coming up with our own wish list and dreaming about the gifts we'll be getting (almost got your room all set up, future pet monkey Ampersand) that we've totally forgotten to purchase gifts for the two sets of people we value the most.

Firstly: our fans. As such, we dedicate this column to you! Congrats! We love you more than Arrow fans like us love Stephen Amell's abs and the geeky cute way that Felicity blushes when she sees them.

5.2 Reasons We Can't Wait to Play Batman: Arkham Origins

For the last few days, we've been held up in our rooms watching a clock count down to midnight, Friday, October 25—surviving on Twizzlers, nachos and pizza (the three healthiest meals known to man) and eagerly awaiting the moment we can race out to the nearest store and purchase our copy of Batman: Arkham Origins.

We were right in the middle of suiting up into our custom Batman costume when the Powers That Be reminded us that we had to deliver our weekly installment of everyone's favorite column 5.2 Reasons (just... just let us have that).

5.2 Reasons We're Excited for Injustice

We’ve all be there. Discussing our favorite super heroes with our friend (let’s randomly say, oh, Jimmy) and suddenly the conversation turns to who would win a fight. Not between us and Jimmy (obviously, that’d be us—what now, Jimmy?!) but in match-ups between Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman and SHAZAM!, the Flash and Green Lantern.
