#DarkKnight Frank Miller's #Batman

 
 
Christian Ronchi's version of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight looks like a creepy vampire Batman. This version of the classic superhero is pretty terrifying, and he'd definitely scare the shit out of the criminals of Gotham.

The Evolution of #Superheroes

#CaptainCanuck vs. #CaptainAmerica

Look at some of Canada's most fearless heroes and break down their chances against the first Avenger

Captain Canuck
The hero of a self-titled indie comic launched in the mid-70s, Captain Canuck was originally imagined as a secret agent who gained powers after coming in contact with aliens, and patrolled the futuristic Canada of the 1990s, where our nation was the most powerful on Earth. Seems plausible.
Could he beat Captain America?
This hoser? Fat chance.

#Batman75 today

CELEBRATE! Today, Batman is 75 years old! Happy Birthday!
But, the cover says May 1939, right? Here's a statement from DC Comics about why March 30 is his official birth date:
"Based on historical data from the Registrar of Copyrights, DC Entertainment recognizes that the world's most popular Super Hero — Batman — was first introduced to the public 75 years ago on March 30, 1939, in Detective Comics #27.
It was common practice in 1939, and remains so today, for publications to go on sale prior to their indicated cover date. Thus, while the Bat-Man (as he was then known) first appeared in the May 1939 cover-dated issue of Detective Comics #27, that issue actually hit newsstands on March 30, 1939."
So, REJOICE! Today is the day! ‪#‎WEareBATMAN‬
