Batman, Avengers & More …
Dick Grayson as Batman
The hype surrounding Snyder’s latest Batman comic has been pretty crazy.. The ending didn’t impress me all that much but there were a few moments that stood out including DIck Grayson’s return as Batman! I loved Grayson’s run as the Caped Crusader and the relationship he built with Damian Wayne as Robin. Though Gordon looks to be taking over as Bats it was really cool to see Dick back in the uniform.
— UPDATE —
Thanks to markefrody in the comments section, who sent us the following information:
– First appearance of Dick Grayson (Earth-2) as Batman is in Wonder Woman #283
– First appearance of Dick Grayson (New Earth) as Batman is in Robin vol 4 #0
— END UPDATE —
The ensemble cast photo of Suicide Squad was underwhelming with one exception-Katana looks pretty rad.
This sampler could be the first appearance of Katana if it came out before Brave and the Bold 200. It was released early summer of 1984. Look out for Batman and the Outsiders origin issues also!
The first appearance of Hawkeye’s wife Laura Barton may have languished away in dollar bins forever if not for Age of Ultron. Hawkeye’s relationship with the Avengers and his wife was one of the best parts of Age of Ultron but I refuse to spoil it by telling you why.
There are rumbling of a possible Starship Troopers TV show coming down the road.
This rare publication is the first published version of Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein originally titles Starship Soldiers. It is a fantastic collectible for any fan of the work but getting your hands on one is not going to be easy.
Starship Troopers: Brute Creations predates the Dark Horse movie adaptation comic by about a month. If you don’t count Dark Horse Insider as a first appearance then the comic below is the first comic appearance of Starship Troopers.
Jocasta ( Ultron’s Bride ) was not actually in Age of Ultron but she was referenced before Tony chooses FRIDAY as his AI replacement.
There’s no definitive proof that Hela ( Loki’s daughter ) will play the villain in Ragnarok but there were some subtle references when the Scarlet Witch messes with Thor’s mind in Age of Ultron.
The Infinite Horizon
Producer of the Arrow and Flash CW series is on board to adapt this mini from Image. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and believe the property to be in good hands. Can’t wait for this one!
Issues 1-6 and issue 1 ( 2nd print ) will start drying up real soon but do not forget this con preview that predates all other appearances.
