What's on your mind?
It has been firmly established that years of making joker and fear toxin have allowed Joker and Sacrecrow to become immune to their own toxins. And yet, in Batman Arkham Knight: Joker succumbs to Fear Toxin, and in Injustice 1, Scarecrow is seen having succumbed to Joker's toxin. However, neither versions of those characters are part of a mainstream continuity. And I've never found any times where one has been hit by the others toxin. So, theorectically, could either villain fall prey to the other's toxin? Or would their immunities protect them?
Every DC city has at least once, been nearly wiped off the map by a supervillain, and extensive damage is common in events like these. And yet, often in the next issue, the damage has been repaired, and everyone goes on with their lives while the villain has either been imprisoned to later escape very soon, got away to plot revenge, or killed to be resurrected a month later.
How can these cities, especially Metropolis, pay to have such destruction repaired as if nothing happened? It just amazes me. Has this ever been addressed?

So those of you have watched the premier of the watchmen tv series what did you think?
I enjoyed I think it’s going to be a good series!
Also not sure what label this but I’m going to say major spoiler! I has honestly surprised that my prediction about the boy watching the bass reeves movie in beginning was Louis gossett jrs character
Crane has always been my favorite Batman villian, probably my favorite villian of all time. I know he's an A list villian and all, but sometimes he just gets thrown aside like he's nothing.
In your opinion, what is the worst Flash comic you have read? It could also be Impulse if you like or a one-shot.
In my opinion, the worst is Flash Rebirth #9. I thought it was a lousy excuse for a story and I just felt it lacked in everything except art. I absolutely hated its characters (which were never brought back) and I absolutely hated the entire plot. It felt cheap and pathetic for a follow-up to the New 52, which I liked.
It can be from any time.

So Superman is going to reveal his identity? This is about to get interesting.
After watching Batman: Hush for the first time, this made me think that this was the worst DC Animated movie to ever come into existence. I would say there was about 30% similarity to the story in this movie, but the rest was all done in a different way. An example is Batgirl coming to Bruce's aid when he's unconscious and some thugs try to take off his mask. It should've been Huntress to come to his aid, but DC has been sleeping on her too much in the animation section. I know she's going to be featured in the Birds of Prey movie, but I still would've loved for her to be featured in this movie. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but was Bane ever involved in the storyline? It's been a while since I last read the story. The only things they got right for this movie were the opera scene and Superman saving Lois from falling off of the Daily Planet building. Nygma dropping the Riddler persona and becoming Hush was not really interesting. The only things I liked about this movie was the romance between Bruce and Selina because it shows that they are, in my opinion, the best DC couple and the voice cast as always is great. I loved Jennifer Morrison's performance as Catwoman. I would say she's my third favorite voiceover for the character after Grey Griffin and Laura Bailey. Fun fact, she is currently starring alongside ex-Green Arrow, Justin Hartley on This is Us. What are everyone's thoughts about this movie? I'm sorry for coming off mostly negative here. DC will always have a special place in my heart.

That's what "Joker" should've been called. I'm sorry for all of you fans out there, but this film was merely "ok" in my book.
For an hour and a half, I truly felt like the thing was laughing at me for wasting my time and money and for spilling my pop-corn as well. Talk about feeling like a Joker...
Nevertheless, it did pay-off in the end. The third act of the film was brilliant. That would've been a perfect short film for something called Joker. But no, they had to include all the victimization of a "poor, helpless soul".
And don't get me started with the edgy, whiny stuff about how society is just mean. Oh, shit I'm part of the problem... what will I do now??? I guess I'll empathize with murderous lunatics. After all, its the humane thing to do, the poor little things... ugh.
As a comic book film, it fails to deliver a pop-corn flick and thrives at being a pretentious artsy flick, which makes bumbling audiences feel sophisticated for having enjoyed it.
As an expressive piece of art, it's actually rather interesting and has nice touches of symbolism here and there. My favorite by far is of course, the taxi. Or rather, taxis. A pervasive element in the film for a very good reason.
As a devoted Bat-fan, it left me conflicted. They said there were no easter eggs, but come on, only a comic book buff would recognize the name Benjamin Stoner as a doctor in Arkham. Boy, how happy that made me. It really put a smile on my face, unlike Phoenix's forced laugher.
The acting is decent. But is it plausible? I don't know about that, chief. That's a hard to swallow pill. But hey, he's cray-cray, remember. So anything goes... into the fridge?? Sure, why not.
Now, I said the third act was brilliant, but I didn't said it was perfect. Remember when I said that no Joker stuff is complete without Batman? Well, they knew that perfectly well and they just HAD to connect the origin stories of both arch-enemies. Dumb and pandering. Burton did it better anyways.
The last straw was the ending. The movie tries so hard to make us empathize with poor saps, but with that ending, it feels like they are just mocking everyone. Is that their way to prove a point? I'm still waiting for a non-existent punchline. I guess I just "didn't get it."
All in all, I can see this movie affecting young and impressionable audiences who might not be old enough to have watched Ledger enjoying anarchy in a police car, all those years back when it was something new.
Throughout your extensive knowledge of DC history and lore, have you ever found yourself cooking up a crazy conspiracy of our beloved characters. Did they come true, were somehow not connected, or are we still waiting for the reveal?
For example, at the start of Rebirth I first thought that all the Villain organizations were somehow connected under one big bad. There was NEMO, Black Hole, the Ninth Circle, The Colony, Godwatch, and so forth.
It probably won’t be for a movie or two but at some point Robert Pattinson is gonna get his Joker. Who would you guys like to see? Two castings that would never happen that I would be curious to see would be Christian Bale or Chris Pine. Please don’t say Willem Dafoe it’s overstated and will never happen. Also Bradley Cooper would make a great Lex.
