Demon in the Dark: Batman Vs. The Secret Six is still one of my all-time favorite DC fan films. Though the plot isn’t perfect, and the McGuffin is barely there, the love and attention the creators put into this film really spotlights what makes a fan film a great film.
Six months ago, The Demon in the Dark debuted on Vimeo. The fan film tells the story of a team of villains trying to deliver a package across town, while Batman follows in pursuit. Could this be a better Suicide Squad movie than the Suicide Squad? Take the jump and decide for yourself.
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast: A special episode as Matthew and Stephen discuss all things Doctor Who and DC related (really, we didn’t plan this). Everything from Secret Six, and the Four Doctors #5 to Gotham on FOX, and Greg Berlanoti’s busy schedule!
Times are tough and comics can be expensive! We here at Major Spoilers understand that and we know that many people are trade waiters. We want to help you make the most informed buying decision concerning collected editions. Still haven’t bought a gift for Valentine’s Day? Looking for something for that special someone? We have some inspiring suggestions for readers this month. This is what we all had to say: JASON’S PICK Spider-Man 2099 Classic Volume 3 The Fall Of The Hammer TP Writers: Peter David and Various Artists: Various Publisher: Marvel Comics Price: $34.99 In Stores: February 4th, 2015
Or – “A Betrayal In The Name Of Love Is Still A Betrayal…” Scandal and her makeshift family are terrible, horrible, awful, not-at-all-good human beings (well, mostly human.) With a combined bodycount that exceeds the population of Dayton Ohio, and a veritable museum of bad decisions behind them, any one of them could use a free pass to grace. Too bad there’s only one miracle to go around…
Or – “Hey, What’s The Deal With Luthor?” Originally formed by Lex Luthor, the members of the Secret Six really ought to know better than to work for him (or, honestly, to trust him at all) by this point. Of course, where there’s cash on the line, Scandal and company will follow, putting them between their evil old boss and one of their evil old daddies. It makes you wonder if these guys can even go to the store without a major disaster…
Or – “Within The Hidden Lands At The Center Of The Earth…” The Six have split in two, and are now technically a Secret Twelve, with Bane and Jeannette on one side, and Catman, Rag Doll, Bane and Scandal on the other. Each group is backed by a different government jerk (Spy Smasher and Amanda Waller, respectively) and all are trapped in the hidden world of Skartaris, stomping grounds of the Warlord. What will it take to bring our heroes (and I use the term loosely) together again?
