Even though this website is called, I still don’t like it when serious plot points in a story I’m looking forward to reading are given away. And I steer clear of ruining a story for anyone else as a result.

Archie Comics has announced that Michael Uslan, the executive producer of The Dark Knight and Batman Begins, and the writer behind the Archie Marries Veronica storyline, is also the mind behind Pureheart the Powerful (aka Archie as a superhero). Michael Uslan explains “We’re not just talking ONE super-hero here!

With Great Power Comes Much Punching and Fighting With all the craziness that is going on in the DC Universe, it’s nice to know you can sit down and read a title that both follows and breaks continuity at every turn.  Superman/Batman reintroduced Supergirl to the world, but it also featured a run where the entire universe went flippy a couple of times, and no one in any of the other titles noticed. We’ve now come to a tale that has the Silver Banshee doing the thing that she does so well, which had the odd effect of Batman acquiring

I think there are a half dozen things on at this auction I’m interested in putting on my Christmas list.  The utility belt worn by Adam West in the 1960s Batman television series is only going for between $4,000 and $6,000, the outfits worn in the Buckaroo Banzai movie are only $3,000 each, and the cowl that Christian Bale wore in Batman Begins is a bargain at $20,000.  Too bad that Major Spoilers Tip Jar is empty (joke).  This is the 33rd Annual Profiles in History Auction that kicks off on December 11. Take the jump for the complete press

Alan Burnett has spent more consecutive years “in the Batcave” than anyone in animation history. Not counting his stint on “Super Friends” in 1983, Burnett has constantly helped bring the Batman’s legacy to animation since 1991 – when he began scripting episodes of “Batman: The Animated Series,” the Emmy(R)-winning production widely considered a pivotal moment in American animation. This summer, the latest animated venture into the Dark Knight’s mythos takes an altogether different approach than anything produced during Burnett’s 17-year association with the character. Burnett served as movie story editor and the writer of the anchoring segment of “Batman Gotham
