Author’s Note: Random Access Memory is me looking back at the specific comics that shaped my life. Each month I go back in time – in five year intervals – to examine key comics that came out those months. (The idea is that after five years of monthly columns, I will have covered an entire lifetime – in this case, fifty years – of reading comics.) I also list all the comics I read that particular month. This will afford readers the opportunity to chastise me for not reading specific comics, and/or laugh at the horrible, horrible choices I made
I’ve long been a Teen Titans fan, even back to the Mister Twister “origin” story. When younger heroes get together, it’s always fun for me.

If you love the ’66 Batman series, and you don’t already have a full-size Batmobile of your own, you could at least get a part of it with a new vinyl bank from Diamond Select Toys.
If The Flash television show has proven anything it is that you can have fun with your superhero television franchises. While we anxiously await the next Warner Bros. DCU film to see what kind of humor is injected into that universe, the company has unveiled the new LEGO Batman Movie, that is full of laughs.
