"Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" In 2012

25 September 2011 3:13 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Warner Home Video continues to work on its next round of 'DC Universe' animated movies including "Justice League: Doom", adapting DC Comics' "Tower of Babel", "Superman vs. the Elite" and "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns".

"Tower of Babel", written by Mark Waid, deals with Batman's perceived betrayal of the superhuman community, by keeping records of the weaknesses of his allies in the 'Justice League', including detailed plans of how they could be eliminated in a fight.

These files are subsequently stolen by the villain 'Ra's al Ghul', who uses them to defeat the Justice League in a coordinated attack.

'Martian Manhunter' bursts into flame upon exposure to air, 'Aquaman' is rendered hydrophobic by an altered form of the 'fear' toxin used by 'Scarecrow' and 'Plastic Man' is frozen solid, then shattered by a hammer by one of Ra's al Ghul's henchmen.

Updates on the passing of Dwayne McDuffie, gifted animation and comic book writer

23 February 2011 8:25 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Cbr (www.comicbookresources.com) provided this Update on the passing of multi-talented comic book and media writer Dwayne McDuffie yesterday afternoon:

1:25 Pm Pst: Cbr has learned that McDuffie died from complications due to a surgical procedure performed Monday evening.

I didn’t find out about this until close to midnight last night and yelled out in sheer horror. It really threw me for a loop. Like S&A commenter Skyvolt said in the previous McDuffie post, he didn’t cry about lack of Black characters, he did something about it. Weird, I was just watching All-Star Superman yesterday and was looking forward to the new Static monthly book (though not written by him) to come out in a few months. Man, I’m still shocked, no dumb pun intended. Only Jam Master J’s passing threw me for more of a wallop.

Dwayne McDuffie represents the best of us »
