Batman’s most underrated villains haven’t reached DC Comics yet

Batman / Catwoman # 1 is on the shelf and is a milestone for DC Comics. Not because of Batman or Catwoman, but because of fantasism Andrea Beaumont.

Andrea first appeared as an adversary bearing the name of the 1993s Fantastic mask, One of the best Batman movies ever made.But nevertheless PhantasmInfluence in Batman mythology, Batman / Catwoman # 1 is the closest to its name appearing in the main DC Universe.

I need to say three things about this. First: This is great! Second: Why did it take so long? And finally: do the rest.

Babydolls are already in mainstream continuity.

Chillin like a villain

The effect of the DC Animated Universe on the villains of the main DC Universe is so complete that it is difficult to perceive. In a broader culture, the original (and often sympathetic) characters of these shows take on characters like Mr. Freeze, ventriloquist, and Brainiac, and complete the comic book counterparts they were based on. It surpasses.This is one of them Batman: Animation Series, Superman: The Animated Series Naturally famous.

These shows are lesser known for adding a banger after the female character banger to Canon, which was even more surprisingly male than it is today in 1993.It’s easy to forget that DC Comics didn’t have Batgirl while Barbara Gordon appeared. B: TAS.. Five years have passed since she first appeared in the comic in her last outfit, and until 1999 there was no other Batgirl.

In most cases, DCAU had to be created from the entire cloth to add a female character to the screen. A good indicator of superhero characters is whether other creators want to pick them up and use them. With that indicator, the DC Animated Universe was a huge success.

Latina police detective Renee Montoya was hired as the creator of the manga, based solely on an early investigation of the production material, before the show aired. Breakout Joker’s Hench Woman, Harley Quinn, was featured in comics in 1999, and the rest is history.That same year, Lex Luthor’s loyal bodyguard, Mercy Graves, made his debut. Detective comicsWill be displayed later Titans, Supergirl,and Batman vs Superman Justice Birth..Superman Villain Livewire (Fresh Off Voice)Tank girl Lori Petty! ) Jumped into the page in 2006 and since then Young superman And Supergirl..

Hell, even the Roxy rocket has become a cartoon. But do you know who doesn’t know?

Baby doll and calendar girl

Calendar Girl is the villain of the episode “Mean Seasons” and is a murderous and highly unstable former model for revenge on her employer who shunned her the moment she turned 30. In my expert opinion, “Mean Seasons” is just one of twice that, similar to Riddler, but the Calendarman version is interesting if you could only riddle on one subject. did. And the other time is supersingularly locked into a single storyline. Well, I’m probably the only one here where Calendar Girl is confused to make it into a cartoon.

But there really isn’t an excuse for a babydoll that has never appeared in DC Comics’ Core Continuity.The story of Mary Dahl, a former child actor Leave it to Beaver-Turned from general anger to kidnapping and murder after confining her to the inevitable perception that her condition prevented her growth and that she was a girl with a hollow face that was only suitable for producing laughter. An eccentric hit awwwwws??

It’s just a powerful, medically incredible metaphor for making great superhero villains. And it worked. There has been no new “babydoll content” since 1998 (not counting short appearances in discontinuous cartoons like this): Batman: White Knight And Lil GothamA quick search for “Batman Babydoll” does not find a flock of stuffed animals.

Twenty years later, fans still talk about how only two episodes of babydolls called her “underestimated” and stabbed them in the gut, why she never reached the comics. I’m wondering.

She was even a partial inspiration for one of the following The ultimate villain of the final season of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic..

Babydolls don’t have to be Batman’s core villains. In recent Batman comic tones, it could appear with young heroes such as Robin and Batgirl, or as an enemy to the Teen Titans and Young Justice teams. But what is clear is that she has been sympathetic to her fans and has been around for years, despite the lack of new appearances.

Someone put the babydoll in DC continuity. That way I can concentrate on carrying this cross for the calendar girl.
