"When we originally plotted this story, Bullock and Montoya were supposed to be the main protagonists, but after Paul turned in his script, I decided I wanted to put Batgirl in it, too (I love to draw pretty girls, in case you didn't know). As I recall, Paul's reaction was 'WHAT!!??!!' I explained how I thought we could do it and subsequently wrote most, if not all, of her dialogue myself directly on the boards. I think Paul was ultimately happy with the final result, but you'd have to ask him." --Bruce Timm, Afterword, Batman: Mad Love and Other Stories

Some of you may remember the time I posted that one story where Bruce is depicted as a completely realistic corporate CEO. Well, more realistic than almost any other take, anyways. Good times, good times.

Many of you rightfully called out that portrayal as terrible, and that pondering the "realistic" foundations of Wayne Enterprises misses the whole point of Batman very, very badly. This recent article from Chris Sims on that very topic got me thinking: what would be the total, polar opposite of Batman: Tenses? What story would have Bruce's boundless charity and philanthropy play a central role, not just be relegated to a plot convenience or a fuzzy-wuzzy epilogue?

Ladies and germs, I believe I've found the answer. And the answer may shock you to your very core!

At the cost of being both predictable and cheating the theme a bit, I'm going to go with a piece that already has my five picks banded together. Granted, the artist probably didn't think of them as a team when he drew it, but the idea popped into my head as soon as I first saw the piece, and now it won't leave.

Yeah. I had a bunch more "Villains Being Awesome" moments to post, but there are so, so few days of October left. Ergo, I decided to lump several of them into one post!

As a last-ditch effort to establish some kind of connecting theme beyond "Batman villains", I chose the three villains featured in what popular opinion has deemed the worst Batman film to date, Batman & Robin. If anyone deserves to have their awesomeness trumpeted and the reputations that that movie gave them destroyed, it's these three. And I say that as a guy who's usually apathetic (at best) to two of them.

Really? Nobody's posted any more of Batgirl #13 than that one preview page we saw a while back? I know it was kinda fillerish, but it had a few cute bits. So let's have at them, shall we? Total of 4 pages, 3 whole, 2 halves.

Oh, and also: Have an icon!

I'm normally not a Neil Gaiman fan. I keep giving him chances and finding out I dislike his work all over again. But, sometimes, I think he's brilliant. One page from Detective Comics #853.

Some love for the DCAU Robin--in this case, Tim. This particular story is called Disappearing Act, written by Matthew K. Manning and pencilled by Tim Levins

So here's the premise: Batman's disappeared after following up a lead on a robbery--a robbery committed by none other than J'onn J'onnz. Tim's gone to the satellite to try to get help from the Leaguers on watch--Superman, Flash and Hawkgirl. After Superman keeps Flash and Hawkgirl from beating the tar out of Tim for the unexpected invasion, they go on another call--apparently another Justice Leaguer is committing robbery:
