Ten Moments that Mattered: Goodbye, Adam West

Has it been a year already? 2017 has reached its end, but before we dive into 2018, we’d like to take a moment and look back. For DC fans, 2017 was a remarkable year in comics, film and TV. Our characters reached new milestones and audiences, our writers and artists achieved remarkable new heights and our universe continued to grow in surprising new ways. And yet, within it all, several moments stood out for their importance and relevance. Some of them were groundbreaking, others were a welcome return. All of them are worthy of acknowledgement and celebration.

Who is Batman's Greatest Legacy?

I kid you not when I confess that Robin has been, and always will be, my favorite comic book character of all time. In the same way that I love the idea of Alfred as Bruce’s surrogate parent in the wake of Thomas and Martha’s death, I adore even more that Bruce turned around and accidentally found himself the adopted parent (sometimes legally, sometimes spiritually), of a gaggle of wayward children. I have a vested interest in the power of Batman’s legacy and which of Batman’s sidekicks turned out to be the biggest success.

Injustice 2: Batman Finally Uses his Super Powers

Batman is one of the most interesting characters in comic book history. He’s been portrayed as a world-class pugilist, an unflappable detective and a vengeful protector. But, no matter what the case (or place), the one thing that Batman ALWAYS is, is one step ahead of the bad guys.

Batwoman: Redefining the Familiar

The Femme Fatale is well known in detective stories, particularly ones with a noir feel—a woman from an investigator's past returns, bringing mystery, deceit and danger into their life. BATWOMAN VOL. 1: THE MANY ARMS OF DEATH, written by Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV, not only plays with the expectations of the trope, it shows how the role may shift based on perspective.

Should the Justice League Headquarters be on Earth?

Over the near half a century that the Justice League (and its numerous incarnations) has existed, they’ve had a variety of places to call their home. Happy Harbor is both easy to remember due to the alliterative nature of the name and for being the very first place that the Justice League ever operated out of when they were through being the Justice Society—or more accurately, when the JSA became the superteam of Earth-2 at the dawn of the Silver Age of Comics.
