The Batman of the 1950s: Censorship and New Dimensions

9 August 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In 1960 Bill Finger wrote a Batman story involving a South American rebel group releasing a mysterious “Rainbow Creature” composed of red, green, yellow, and blue on an unsuspecting rural village. Each color holds a power, when a power is used the associated color fades to white. Batman and Robin eventually devise a plan to make it use all its powers simultaneously. It works, and the creature fades entirely white. Then, before The Dynamic Duo can strike, it implodes into dust and blows away in the wind. This was Batman #134. And though the issue was released in 1960, it is the pinnacle of the 1950s Batman: bright, whimsical, otherworldly, and downright bizarre. Did this tone stem from post-War censorship and economic realities, or something else?

The eras of The Batman are many. Even now, as I’m writing this or you are reading it somewhere in time, the character is ever »

Lex Luthor: Who played the Superman villain best?

7 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Superman's nemesis Lex Luthor has been in the headlines recently after it was revealed that Jesse Eisenberg will be playing him in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie.

The super-villain first appeared in the DC comic books in 1940 and, although the archenemy of Superman, he has also come into conflict with Batman and other superheroes in the DC Universe.

Originally depicted as a mad scientist who used his intelligence to create futuristic weapons, Lex Luthor evolved into a bald businessman and industrialist whose sky-high intelligence compensated for his lack of superpowers.

With Eisenberg stirring debate as the newest incarnation of the villain, we take a look back at the actors who've taken on Lex Luthor and ask who played him best.

Lyle Talbot (Atom Man vs Superman)

Talbot was not only the first actor to take on Lex Luthor, he was also the first live-action actor to play two »
