TNTM: Meet Clownhunter – Gotham’s newest and weirdest vigilante

Clownhunter is the latest Batman creation from James Tynion IV and Jorge Jimenez.

DC Comics is starting to increase the membership of Batman’s Rogues Gallery as of late.  Batman #92 introduces us to Joker’s new sidekick, Punchline and now Batman #96 will give us Clownhunter.

Tynion explains his new character:

Now, when I first thought up the name Clownhunter, I was thinking about a story that was going to follow Joker War (I don’t even think Joker War was called Joker War at that point). There was a story that was going to come out of the event, and I wanted to create this mysterious clown hunting character… And then Punchline happened, and the particular story I was introducing Clownhunter for evaporated, and I was looking at my plans for Joker War and noticed that I was missing something pretty big in the story.

There wasn’t a POV character on the ground in Gotham City, seeing the city go to hell around them. Joker War is meant to represent a shift in how Gotham sees itself, and be a catalyst for a bold new Gotham City that’s building in its wake… I needed a character who represented that change. A character who takes things into his own hands because he sees the city needs it, but not by Batman or Joker’s terms. A supporting cast member that wasn’t part of the Arkham Rogues, or part of the Bat-Family. Something new and different.

And I went into C2E2 with that problem in my head, and then I actually saw the response to Punchline in person, and it confirmed something that I’ve been suspecting for a while, but has become clear ever since I started both Something Is Killing The Children and my Batman run… I think the current generation of comic book reader is HUNGRY for its own generation of comic book characters. Characters they get to participate in the introduction of, and they get to learn the origin of, and see how other characters react to them… Characters that haven’t appeared in multiple video games, and tv-shows, to the point where there are five competing canons that exist for them.

clownhunter
clownhunter

The comic book readers want to own these characters and know the most about these characters, and if they show up down the line in other media, they’re the ones who were participating in their introduction from the beginning. And that’s an exciting place to be! So Jorge and I got to do that with Punchline, which seems to be going over very well… and It’s served me well in creating Erica Slaughter over in Something Is Killing The Childrn

So It felt like I should weaponize that POV character that I saw Joker War needed, and take the cool name from the defunct project, and create a new Clownhunter character to introduce in the book. So I wrote a quick scene in issue 96, the second part of Joker War… And I realized I had something interesting. So with permission from my editor, I reached out to Jorge to help bring together all my crazy ideas for this new character and build something new from the ground up…

And this is where we landed.

I desperately want a statue of him wailing on a Clown Gang member, so I hope you all like him as much as I do, and we can will that statue into existence. I deeply, deeply love the design Jorge gave him, and how unlike any other Bat-character he looks. He’s exactly the kind of crazy element I want to introduce into the Gotham books to dial up the possibilities of stories we can tell in their pages.

CLOWNHUNTER is a quiet, weird kid who lives in the Narrows. He mumbles jokes to himself under his breath, but doesn’t speak up in class or while he’s gaming late at night. When he was a kid, he saw his parents killed by the Joker, and his life was saved by Batman. He idolized Batman for years. But when Joker War starts, and Batman can’t stop it out the gate, he picks up a baseball bat, hammers in the Batarang Batman gave him as a kid, and goes out to start killing the Clown gang members terrorizing his neighborhood.

He’s a different sort of vigilante. Vigilantes in Gotham normally come with high tech costumes and gadgets. He’s more lo-fi, and more willing to cross the lines that the usual vigilantes don’t. There’s a dark, young city brewing underneath Batman’s feet in Gotham… On one hand we have Punchline, who represents a new kind of villain, a kind of young person radicalized into believing something deeply dangerous… On the other hand, we have Clownhunter, who sees himself as a hero, but has tossed out the entire moral playbook of Batman, and doesn’t respect his old ways of looking at the world.

As Joker and Batman go head to head as Gotham turns into a War Zone, we’ll see that Clowns are terrified to go to the narrows, all because of this kid who isn’t afraid to kill them. There’s a Clownhunter story in a one-shot coming out in September with an artist that I am flipping out I get to work with, and he’ll continue to play a key role in the book after Joker War. That’s the big thing I want to hammer in with both Punchline and Clownhunter, I have real plans for these characters, and we want to see if you’ll fall for them, too. These are not meant to be flash in the pan sales points, these are new characters that open up stories to tell that we couldn’t tell with other characters in the Batman Mythos. And I’ve got plans to tell those stories.

I keep saying he’s one part Kaneda’s Gang from Akira, one part Casey Jones from TMNT, and one part Deadpool (in terms of a kind of amused detachment from reality). His first appearance is in Batman #96 (and that is his ACTUAL, 100% first appearance, no minor appearances in the background of a previous issue – He shows up for the first time from whole cloth in #96).

He and Punchline are the first children of a new Gotham City Jorge and I are building in the pages of Batman. So far it seems like you’re along for the ride, but I hope you stick with us. I have lots of even bigger, even crazier plans to come, and I can’t wait for them to come to light.

Punchline has already made a huge impact in the Batman world as a new and menacing villain.  Clownhunter looks to fill that void between good guy and bad guy.  Gonna be interesting to see how Batman deals with him.  It will be equally interesting to see if the villains take him seriously enough to do something about him.

TNTM: Gold Lanterns added to the Lantern Corps color spectrum

The Lantern Corps are organizations that harness the Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum.

Originally there was only the Green Lantern Corps, but it has since expanded with the Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Indigo, Violet, Black, White, and Ultraviolet.

DC Comics will be adding another color to the spectrum later this year.

The Gold Lanterns are set to debut in DC Comics Legion of Super-Heroes  Issue 6.  The Gold Lantern has his own special symbol, but what really sets them apart is they have two power rings! One ring is a standard issue Legion flight ring.

The other one is the mysterious Gold Lantern ring.  In a recent interview Brian Michael Bendis revealed the following concerning the Gold Lantern and their association with the Legionnaires.

Gold Lantern
Gold Lantern

“I don’t think any of them are oddball,” Brian Michael Bendis was heard saying about the Legionnaires. “I’m not bullshitting; they’re all awesome. I will say, I’ll plug our new ones. We have Monster Boy coming. We have Gold Lantern coming. We have a new Doctor Fate. So we’ll see the future of magic at DC. Also, I’m getting a lot of positive feedback on the design on Timber Wolf, so I’m very happy to hear that.”

The Gold Lantern Corps draw their power from their members’ unfathomable happiness and joy.  There are not many members of the Gold Lantern Corps.

The Gold ring can only be wielded by those who have known and expressed nothing but happiness and joy their whole lives.  Their former leader, Sot’os, has lived for thousands of years and thus became insane from a lifetime of bliss and happiness.

Other known members of the Gold Lanterns are Tahhz, Yxxug, and Crovvak.  Not much has been revealed about the Gold Lantern Corps yet.  Looking forward to see what role they play in the DC Universe.

The Legion of Superheroes: Millennium #1, will be released on September 18th of this year.

TNTM: Batman Day 2019 celebrates 80 years of the Caped Crusader

Batman is undoubtedly one of the most loved and recognizable super heroes.  I am not gonna rehash the origin of Batman.  If you don’t already know that you probably shouldn’t be reading this article.

He made his debut in Detective Comics #27 on March 30, 1939.  DC Comics celebrates Batman Day every year in September.  2019 marks the 80th anniversary of the Dark Knight and DC is throwing a party.

DC Comics has invited the world to celebrate Batman with the official #LongLiveTheBat and #Batman80 hashtags throughout 2019 up to Batman Day on September 21.  The campaign kicked off at SXSW with the release of 1.5 million bats flying from Austin’s Congress Bridge. DC Comics plans to have the Bat Signal light up the sky across major cities worldwide on Batman Day.

They are pulling out all the stops for this 80th anniversary.  Six Flags locations across America will have exclusive Batman experiences and merchandise.  Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Orlando and Sydney will host unique Dark Knight exhibits and photo opportunities. DC is promising an all-out takeover of the airwaves with special marathons of Batman TV shows and movies beginning in March all through September.

There will be special edition comic and graphic novel to commemorate this day as well.

Batman: Nightwalker: The Graphic Novel Batman Day 2019 Special Edition #1 features an excerpt from the upcoming DC graphic novel for young adults based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Marie Lu, adapted by writer Stuart Moore with art and cover by Chris Wildgoose.

The Batman Who Laughs Batman Day 2019 Special Edition #1 reprints the 2017 one-shot spinning out of Dark Nights: Metal, written by James Tynion IV with art by Riley Rossmo and a cover by Jaosn Fabok.  This reprint features a special card stock over-cover with a mask of the Batman Who Laughs!

TNTM: DC Comics Superman – Red Son to be adapted for animated movie

In 2003 DC Comics published Superman: Red Son under their ElseWorlds imprint.  Red Son is set in a world where Superman’s rocket ship lands on a Ukrainian collective farm rather than in Kansas.

Instead of fighting for “Truth, Justice, and the American Way”, Soviet radio broadcasts describe Superman as “The Champion of the common worker who fights a never ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact.”

The Ukranian landing of Superman goes about changing the course of history, as well as other superheroes.

Red Son has always been one of my top 5 Superman stories.  I am happy to see it finally making the leap from page to screen, even if only in animation.  Warner Bros. announced the feature was being planned for a release in the spring of 2020.

There was no mention of who specifically would be involved in the making of the film.  The Eisner nominated series has long been a popular alternate reality tale and has been featured in DC’s restructured multiverse.

TNTM: Batman Who Laughs infecting the DC Universe

Batman Who Laughs instantly became a fan favorite character ever since his first appearance in Dark Nights Metal #2/Teen Titans #12 (they both came out the same week).

We won’t count Dark Days: The Casting #1 since it was just an ad and not part of the story-line.  The creator/writer, Scott Snyder, says the first appearance is Dark Nights Metal #2 since those events occur before the events depicted in Teen Titans #12.  Either book is highly sought after due to the Batman Who Laughs appearance.

For those not in the know, let me explain just Batman Who Laughs.  The Batman Who Laughs is a version of Batman from Earth 22.  In that part of the Multiverse Joker learned Bruce Wayne is actually Batman.  He killed Commissioner Gordon and most of Batman’s villains. Joker then subjected Gotham to the chemicals that transformed him, much like the plot of the original Keaton Batman movie.

Batman fought and killed the Joker, but was exposed to a purified form of the chemicals as a result.  Those chemicals gradually turned him into a new Joker.  By the time Batman figured out what was happening, the process was irreversible. He thus became The Batman Who Laughs.  He killed most of his allies and turned his son, Damian, into a mini-Joker. The Batman Who Laughs becomes a follower of Barbatos and helps in his attempt to take over Prime-Earth (our part of the Multiverse).

The Batman Who Laughs is presumed dead after a battle with Prime-Earth Batman and Joker.  The new teaser for Batman/Superman #1 shows us he is not only alive, but deep into another plan to take over Prime-Earth.  The teaser graphic asks “Who are the Infected?”  It appears he is infecting our superheroes with his Joker chemicals and using them as pawns.  The Year of the Villain initiative is focusing heavily on Batman Who Laughs.  I, for one, couldn’t be happier.

DC’s Year Of The Villain #1 kicked off with a 32-page one-shot. It leads into to some of the biggest story arcs that make up Year of the Villain, with stories by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, plus details on Snyder’s The Batman Who Laughs, Tom King’s “City of Bane” story arc in Batman and the recently announced Batman/Superman by Joshua Williamson and David Marquez.

Joshua Williamson and David Marquez’s Batman/Superman #1 goes on sale August 28.

Official Description

The first arc of Batman/Superman will follow the two titular heroes as they hunt down six infected heroes in the DCU—people revealed to be infected by the Batman Who Laughs with a deadly pathogen that violently transforms them into the evilest versions of themselves. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel must journey into the depths of Gotham City to learn which of their fellow heroes has been transformed into the horrifying horseman of their most dangerous and deranged foe ever.

But who are the Infected? Fans have already been shown a sneak preview of Batman/Superman #1, revealing that The Batman Who Laughs’ plot is bigger than either the Caped Crusader or the Man of Steel realized and showing the devious killer’s first sentinel: a jacked-up, Dark Multiverse-infected Shazam! Who else has been targeted for similar transformations?

Video+Story: TNTM’s kinda-spoilery review Doom Patrol | Ezekiel Patrol | Episode 15

Well, we finally made it to the end of Doom Patrol season 1. There were a lot of ups and downs and way too much Cyborg. Overall, we were underwhelmed by this first season.

By now you should know we are not fans of having Cyborg appear in this series. It always felt kinda forced. There is no real comic book history to support his being there either. It’s like they were trying to leverage his name to boost the show. It didn’t work for us. Hopefully someone will make an edit of the season that contains NO Cyborg.

We were really hooked with the first few episodes. The story was shaping up like a typical reluctant superhero show. Then somewhere in the middle of the season it went off the rails. They lost focus on saving the Chief. A lot of the episodes were just Chief’s freaky friend of the week. Maybe 15 episodes were too much. They could have edited the whole thing down to 10 episodes and it would have been better.

Episode 14 gave us hope. Finally Mr Nobody broke the fourth wall again and agreed with us that there was a lot of character driven drivel and not much in the way of them looking for Chief. He even ripped Cyborg’s face off the Doom Patrol poster. Yes! we felt vindicated. They even put another Animal Mineral Vegetable Man reference in the episode.

That turned out to be false hope though. Episode 15, the final episode, was a bit lackluster. The Doom Patrol has tracked Mr Nobody and the Chief to the white space. The white space is the border area of the comics where there is no content. Rita figures out the true power in the white space is being able to narrate the story.

Mr Nobody may have bitten off more than he can chew in this episode. Ezekiel (cockroach) and Admiral Whiskers (rat) are towering all powerful monsters on Danny Street. Mr Nobody has to work with the Doom Patrol to escape. They all finally escape, but they seem to be tiny and it looks like Danny the Street has become Danny the Brick.

We believe Doom Patrol has some great characters. The story just seemed to ramble along on no certain path. Some of the episodes could be removed completely and have no effect on the plot. They could definitely take Cyborg out completely. Episode 14 would have been a much better season ender. DCU will be hard pressed to entice us into watching season 2.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

Video+Story: TNTM’s kinda spoilery review – Doom Patrol: Penultimate Patrol- Episode 14

This episode is titled “Penultimate Patrol”. I had to look up the meaning of that word. Now that I know the definition, the title is very fitting. Penultimate just means next to last. As this is the next to last episode… I get the joke.

Just when we thought we were rid of Cyborg, they bring him back in. Why must DC punish us?

We get a little bit of the impetus behind why Eric Morden became Mr. Nobody…unless that is just something he made up to help bait his trap for Doom Patrol.

Cyborg re-installs GRID and is able to locate the Beard Hunter using the tracking device Rita planted on him. They find that he is now a resident of Danny the Street.

Jane was about to torture some answers out of the Beard Hunter when Danny the Street confessed he knew where Chief was being held. Mr. Nobody had him in the white space on the comic book pages. The place where there is no content.

Flex Mentallo is able to open a portal into the white space (after a brief mistake of flexing the wrong muscle and causing a little inadvertent pleasure). Once inside the white space the Doom Patrol confronts Mr. Nobody. They believe they have defeated him only to find out it was part of his plan.

Mr. Nobody convinces Chief the only way to escape is to “Let the truth set you free”. Chief agonizes over this decision, but ultimately comes clean with the group. The accidents that gave them powers and changed their lives forever…. weren’t accidents! The Chief orchestrated each event.

Will the group support Chief? Will they leave him with Mr. Nobody? Will they rage and destroy the Chief in front of Mr. Nobody (which is probably what he wants anyway? Let us know in the comments.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

Video+Story: TNTM’s kinda-spoilery review of DC’s Doom Patrol | Flex Patrol – Episode 13

Last episode our intrepid heroes busted Cyborg…and Flex Mentallo… out of the Ant Farm.

Rita talks Cyborg into re-installing his GRID operating system after the nanites start turning him more into a robot than human. Cyborg decides to stay with his dad in the hospital after nearly beating him to death when Mr Nobody got into his head. Rita stays with Cyborg to help him through this tough time.

Meanwhile, back at the mansion… Jane and Robot Man try to get Flex’s memory to kick in. They do everything they can think of to trigger his memory. The only thing that works is bringing his wife back to him. Short lived reunion as she has had her body wired so if she comes back in contact with Flex, she dies.

We also find out that Larry and the Negative Spirit are in a symbiotic relationship. They need each other to survive.

The best part is when Mr Nobody gives his soliloquy at the end. Everything he says proves we have been right all season long. He says the past episodes have all been character driven drivel. He rips Cyborgs face off the Doom Patrol ad. He even promises we will be getting more superheroes doing superhero stuff! Can’t wait!

Do you agree with us that we have sat through enough backstory and should start seeing the Doom Patrol start doing heroic things to stop Mr Nobody? Let us know in the comments.

Video+Story: TNTM’s kinda spoilery Doom Patrol – Episode 11: Frances Patrol review

This is another in the long line of episodes where we bash Cyborg for being unnecessary to the story. Difference is we are adding Rita to that list now as well. She hasn’t really used her powers to help much of anything.

Good news is this isn’t another of the “weird Chief’s friends list”. Larry (Negative Man) and Cliff (Robot Man) finally get closure on their past lives and will hopefully be able to move on.

Larry visits his old boyfriend from before his accident after much coercing from the negative spirit. Come to find out his boyfriend led a very happy life, but always wondered what became of Larry.

Cliff finds out his ex-crew chief (Bump) had raised his daughter after both him and his wife died in the car crash. He had some resentment towards Bump for sleeping with his wife and then going on to raise his daughter. The only thing that his daughter got from him after the crash was a watch. She had the watch engraved and gave it to Bump as a gift. Cliff and his wife died while she was still very young so Bump is the only real father she remembers.

Bump, being a typical Florida redneck, decided to wander into the swamp to encounter a legendary alligator named Frances (hence the name of the episode). Of course the alligator ate Bump, watch and all. She was despondent that she didn’t have the watch to remember Bump. Cliff takes it upon himself to find Frances and get the watch back.

(Read this in your best Ted Knight voice) Meanwhile back at the Doom Patrol HQ… Rita notices a man missing from an ad in a comic book that was given to Cyborg by Danny the Street. Rita was able to tell them it was a muscle man character from back in her day. We believe this muscle man is Flex Mentallo who has crossed paths with Doom Patrol in the comics.

Jane and Cyborg track down Flex’s family and go to question them. When they get there Cyborg is kidnapped by the Bureau of Normalcy and taken to the Ant Farm.

This was not a bad episode, but it is not our favorite either. The fact that Cliff and Larry finally get closure should help the store progress towards saving the Chief without them lamenting about their sordid pasts.

Do you agree with us about Frances Patrol? Did you really like it and if so why? If you didn’t like it tell us why also.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

Video+Story: TNTM’s kinda spoilery Doom Patrol | Hair Patrol review

Doom Patrol has no problems bringing on some of the more obscure characters from DC Universe. Episode 10 – Hair Patrol is no exception.

In this episode we are introduced to the Beard Hunter. This guy can track anyone down through space and time by ingesting their essence…. through their beard hair. Just imagine that clump of gook you use Drano to clear out in your bathroom sink. This guy eats that stuff and is able to know everything about you.

The Bureau of Normalcy recruits the Beard Hunter to find the Chief. There are several cut scenes that give us some more background on the Chief. We find out he spends a few years in the frozen wilderness with an ancient tribeswoman. This woman seems to be immortal and has the ability to summon a huge “owlbear” looking creature.

This episode is not one of our favorites, but it is still pretty interesting. It seems like the Doom Patrol is not getting any closer to finding and saving the Chief. It doesn’t seem like they are really focusing very hard on the task either. The episodes seem to be just enough to keep us interested until the next week. There better be a big payoff in the season finale or we might not watch season 2. You can string us along for a while, but you eventually need to give us the goods.

Do you agree with us that Doom Patrol seems to be wandering aimlessly? Let us know in the comments.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.
