In the past, I've posted from the original ending of Dick Grayson's Robin career, a long organic process of growth, told across both Batman titles, and primarily in the Teen Titans (Where Dick was a much more prominent character than in the Batverse at the time).

I've detailed telling the Titans, telling Bruce and Jason and putting on his Nightwing costume for the first time

And it struck me (and also following a post by [personal profile] lego_joker that uses one of the panels herein) that in the interests of fairness and comparison, I should post from a couple of other iterations of the story. Starting with the first revamp... such as it was.

From Batman #408 )

World's Finest #6 )

And this was honestly the only exciting thing that happened this issue.

Well, there's also Little Desaad being all cute and adorable hugging his purple cat, but that's covered in another story.

Anyway....

4 scans + Desaad's origin behind cut. )

And by Huntress, I mean the Huntress identity not the woman behind the mask. We already know the story of the woman behind the mask. Mostly.

I initially had reservations about this issue given how poorly executed this series has been under Levitz, but this one actually genuinely surprised me with solid characterisation and a compelling storyline.

So why do we fall, Bruce? Errrr...ummm...Helena? )

It's cold and lonely here in Minnesota, so I hope you'll enjoy this!

"World's Finest" was kind of an odd title in the Silver Age. Although it starred both Batman and Superman, it was much more in the Superman "camp", using his artists, editors and writers. This meant that many of the stories tended to use characters and themes that had appeared in the Superman titles, and were behind the times when it came to the Batman side of things. In this case, the story riffs on a story in Superman #181, and adds some Batman.



Five of seventeen pages of what's a fairly unusual story for the Silver Age, plus some extras.

My one weakness! )

Your thoughts and comments?

Happy New Year,

So y'all remember how Paul Levitz originally fridged Selina Wayne to give her daughter Helena a reason to become the Huntress in 1977?

If not, no worries, I can quickly remind you. )

But now the question is, how did he update her origin for the year 2012?

Well....Let's just say icon says all.... )

I apologise for the scans being of shitty quality, I screencapped them from my iPhone.

I actually liked this issue much better than the last, and as usual, the flashback story is more interesting than the present one.

When in Rome... )
