The Mix : What are people talking about today?

REVIEW: Batman Beyond: The Complete Series

The team at Warner Animation were enjoying unrivaled success with their 1990s offerings from Animaniacs to Batman: The Animated Series. As a result, as they retired BATS after 65 award-winning episodes, they decided to roll the dice on something bolder. For a change, they were looking to the future and not the comics for inspiration. What if, they wondered, Bruce Wayne aged out of being Batman but the need for the Caped Crusader remained? Who would inherit the mantle of the bat?

As it turns out, they settled on a teen, Terry McGinnis (Will Friedle), to cross paths with Wayne (Kevin Conroy). Where once he relied on Alfred or Oracle for guidance, now he would direct the actions of his unlikely successor in the series Batman Beyond.

Given the futuristic designs and strong storytelling, the audiences proved loyal to the new franchise and the show lasted 52 episodes, spawning fresh merchandising opportunities along with a new character to bring to the DC Universe, where Terry remains active today.

In celebration of this success, Batman Beyond: The Complete Series is now out in an attractive box set, complete with Funko Batman Beyond figure. So, is this worth paying for considering the series was previously collected in 2010? The previous set, which I recommended back then, is now on Blu-ray so the high definition transfer is a consideration. The colors and details are, of course, sharper. Then there are the new Special Features and the addition of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker – The Movie – The Director’s Cut and the figure. I’d say yes for fans of the creators or character.

What’s fun is to be reminded that, like Blade Runner, the future depicted is 2019, which does not resemble our world at all. Bruce Wayne stopped being Batman and Jim Gordon finally retired, with his daughter Barbara (Angie Harmon) as his successor. The influence of the Bat and his villains can be found in the society from gangs known as Jokerz to the fear of the bat symbol.

From a design standpoint, this series is a step forward, away from BATS’ inspiration from the Fleisher Superman cartoons. The extrapolation of a high tech yet still dark Gotham feels right as does the need for a new breed of hero. The dynamic between Bruce and Terry makes for great fun throughout while Terry’s teen and family issues clearly odd a debt to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s early Spider-Man stories.

The show was successful enough to offer up Batman Beyond: The Return of Joker, its only feature-length entry which had to tone down its violence for theatrical release, but all that is back in the director’s cut, making this worth a new look.

Interestingly, just 41 episodes were remastered in high def as technical issues seemed to prevent the remainder from being upgraded. The 1080p episodes look great while the rest look good. The feature is also nice in its 1.33:1 aspect ratio. Accompanying the upgrades is a fine 2.0 Dolby Digital soundtrack so the music and special effects are crystal.

The six discs sprinkle the special features, much as the 2010 release so they remain in standard definition while the new pieces are in HD. For the record, here’s the breakdown:

Conservatives Outraged Over Democrat Rep. Dressing Up As ‘Batman’ On Halloween

Conservatives simply cannot believe Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) dared to wear a costume on Halloween

“As House Democrats prepare to officially blow up their Majority with impeachment, @RepKatiePorter is prancing around dressed as Batman,” the National Republican Congressional Committee tweeted on Wednesday. “This is how seriously these clowns are taking impeachment. #CA45”

Originally at

The only person in Congress who should be angry with this is Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) for not thinking of it first.

Porter had her own response:

“Batgirl,” she told Washington Post reporter Mike DeBonis. “It’s not Batman. It’s Batgirl.”

REVIEW: Wonder Woman: Bloodlines

REVIEW: Wonder Woman: Bloodlines

Rosario Dawson Discusses Wonder Woman: Bloodlines

Since we’re in a long wait between live-action Wonder Woman movies, it makes sense for Warner Animation to fill the gap. I just wish they filled it with something stronger than the just-released Wonder Woman: Bloodlines. The story is mostly about Diana and Vanessa Kapatelis with a hideous cabal of rogues attempting to plunder the technology of Themyscira.

It looks like it should fit in the animated continuity but it doesn’t really. We’re treated to a lengthy pre-credit sequence that recaps her origin and rushes things so quickly, that you blink and we’ve gone from Diana (Rosario Dawson) rescuing Steve Trevor (Jeffrey Donovan) to her leaving paradise for Man’s World and suddenly is allied with Etta Candy (Adrienne C. Moore) as they go to hang out with Dr. Julia Kapatelis (Nia Vandalos).

Screenwriter Mairghread Scott, who has extensive animation credits, notably within the Marvel Universe, can’t seem to make up her mind who Diana is. She comes across as peaceful and loving, compassionate, or willful bordering on arrogant. The scenes between mother Hippolyta (Cree Summer) and daughter don’t work as well as the ones with Diana and teen rebel Vanessa (Marie Avgeropoulos).

For reasons that don’t entirely hold up, we find Vanessa rebelling by allying herself with Dr. Poison (Courtenay Taylor) and Dr. Cyber (Mozhan Marnò), working for some mysterious benefactor. IN a warehouse, Julia is mortally wounded and Vanessa wrongly blames Diana so agrees to be transformed into Silver Swan to seek vengeance. She’s merely a pawn, helping the doctors learn the location of Themyscira.

To find the hidden island (which now makes Diana forget its location, a silly plot point), they go hither and yon until they reach the labyrinth Daedalus constructed to house the Minotaur (Michael Dorn), who is bewitched into a mindless engine of destruction. When he is freed and becomes Ferdinand the ally, we’re finally veering into the celebrated first Greg Rucka run of the title. This builds up to the big reveal that the villains have been carrying Medusa (Cree Summer) with them and she goes on a rampage across Themyscira.

For a climactic fight with the Amazons, I wish directors Sam Liu and Justin Copeland studied the feature film. Here, the highly trained, deadly warriors are merely cannon fodder, easily turned to stone and crushed. It makes them appear weak and useless which belies their true nature. Yes, it serves to amp up the Diana versus Medusa battle with beats lifted from the Rucka run, but it belittles the women.

And it’s no surprise Veronica Cale (Constance Zimmer) is behind everything, with threats made between them lead women, leaving things fraught with tension for a likely sequel. By then, I stopped caring given how little fresh insight into the characters and relationships we’re given.

The film is out in the usual assortment of formats including the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital Code combo pack. The 2160p and 1080p high definition transfers are both crisp and clear, the colors subtle and pure. Unfortunately, they also show up the limited animation which inhibits the characters from really getting into the action. There’s little difference between the two as with the lossless DTS-HD 5.1 Dolby audio track.

Far more interesting than the main event is the DC Showcase short, featuring Death in a touching piece from writer J.M. DeMatteis.

The other Special Features include a piece on The Cheetah (Kimberly Brooks) , which focuses on Wonder Woman’s most famous opponent, who is shoehorned into the movie for no particular reason. The talking heads do a nice job covering her career from the Golden Age to her Legion of Doom role and place in the pantheon of villains.

There is a Sneak Peek of the far more interesting looking adaptation of Superman: Red Son. Finally, there are two episdes from the animated DC vault.


His Name Is … Savage! Returns this December

That’s right! Gil Kane’s 1968 creation will be returning to the world of comics with new adventures starting in December through Paper Movies. His Name Is … Savage! for those who are unfamiliar is a short lived noir comic with a story you could picture the likes of James Bond having to endure. After Gil Kane had passed in 2000, few people thought they’d ever see more of this rather obscure creation from the man that brought us characters like Hal Jordan and Iron Fist. 

Writing this reboot of His Name Is … Savage! is veteran comics writer Steven Grant whose known for his work on comics like Punisher and The Avengers. Illustrating this return is up and coming artist Jesus Antonio Hernandez Portaveritas with colorists Falk Haensel and Raul Manriquez. The new logo and lettering was done by multi-Ringo Award nominated letterer Taylor Esposito who also contributed to ComicMIx’s Mine! anthology. 

For a recent interview with Steven Grant about his work on His Name Is … Savage! as well as more information on what Paper Movies will be publishing soon, check out this Deadline article.

DSE’s legal views are so cockeyed, but amici briefers are taking our side!

The appeal still grinds onward, Dr. Seuss hasn’t quit,
’cause they’ve got lots of moolah to indulge their… snit.
But we’re pleased to announce and happy to report
more people are taking our side in the court.
We fight to express, and these people agreed
the expressions created are something we need.
So let it be heard throughout the whole land
that these types of mashups ought not to be banned!

Many have helped us to fight shibboleths
So in no real order, we must thank (deep breaths…)

Philip Malone and his crew at Stanford,
and everyone on OTW’s board.
Hat tip, Dave and Mags! Grazie, Public Knowledge!
Thanks, Francesca Coppa from Muhlenberg College!
And Dogan and Gerhardt and Grinvald and Ramsey,
Tushnet and Litman and Loren and Lemley,
McGerevan, Grynberg, McKenna, and Sibley,
Samuelson, Stallman, and UC at Berkeley,
and the scholars at Harvard Law’s Cyberlaw Clinic…
you all have given advice that’s rabbinic.
Such great assistance just fills us with glee–

And to the appellants: “EFF You, Dee Ess Eee!”

If you’d like to see what amici makes clear,
you can read all their filings here, here, and here.
And while the court ruling is in legal flux,
if you have cash to spare, we could sure use the bucks.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), along with Public Knowledge, the Organization for Transformative Works, Professor Francesca Coppa, comic book writer Magdalene Visaggio, and author David Mack, all ably represented by Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on Friday to uphold the decision that ComicMix, author David Gerrold, artist Ty Templeton, and editor Glenn Hauman didn’t infringe copyrights in the Dr. Seuss classic “Oh The Places You’ll Go!” with their work,  “Oh The Places You’ll Boldly Go!”—a mash-up of Dr. Seuss and Star Trek themes.

The book combines elements found in Dr. Seuss children’s books, like the look of certain characters and landscapes, with themes and characters from the science fiction series Star Trek, to create a new, transformative work of creative expression, the amici curiae said in a brief filed Friday.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises, which licenses Seuss material, sued the book’s creators for copyright infringement. A lower court correctly concluded that the way in which the “Boldly” book borrows and builds upon copyrighted material in the Dr. Seuss book constitutes fair use under U.S. copyright law.

“The fair use doctrine recognizes that artists and creators must have the freedom to build upon existing culture to create new works that enrich, entertain, and amuse the public,” said EFF Legal Director Corynne McSherry. “Fair use is the safety valve that ensures creators like the authors of ‘Oh The Places You’ll Boldly Go!’ don’t have to beg permission from a copyright holder in order to make works that express new and unique ideas.”

“Oh The Places You’ll Boldly Go!” takes characters and images from five Dr. Seuss books and remakes them into comedic depictions of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and various Star Trek creatures. The book’s visual puns—the multi-color saucer from the cover of “Oh The Places You’ll Go!” is used to create a new kind of starship Enterprise, while a Dr. Seuss character referred to as a “fix-it-up-chappie” is reimagined as Scotty, the ship’s chief engineer—are a form of commentary on the Seuss and Star Trek worlds.

“‘Boldly’s’ creative adaptation of Dr. Seuss works is an example of artistic expression that would be stifled by overly restrictive application of copyright law,” said McSherry.
