In The Flash (v1) #146 (1964), the story "The Mirror Master's Master Stroke" (auth: John Broome, art: Carmine Infantino and Joe Giella) has the titular villain switch legs with the Flash (yes, switch legs) and our hero is forced to run on his hands instead so that he can defeat him. Not quite the same as having an injury to his legs, but close enough, if you ...

Yes, in Flash (vol. 1) #190, published Aug. 1969, the Flash suffers a broken leg: Within the story Barry Allen goes to a rather elaborate, Silver Agey ruse to prevent people from learning that he is temporarily incapacitated, involving a spare Flash costume that he sews shut, fills with "energized gas" and controls with transistors that -- oh, never mind. ...

There are at least five. (and an unnamed one) Sunshine Superman First appeared in Animal Man #23 (1990), as an illusion of sorts (generated by Psycho-Pirate's mask), along with other twisted versions of known characters. Then, his nationality is uncertain. Kal-El of Earth D Featured in Legends of the DC Universe: Crisis on Infinite Earths (1999). This ...

Short Answer: Did Batman and Wonder Woman share a more than platonic relationship? And was it canon? - Yes and yes. A brief relationship is hinted at in the DC Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited (You can see an episode featuring that relationship called "This Little Piggy.") They also considered a relationship in a previous continuity, Post-...

According to Wikiquote: In an interview, Kevin Conroy said that the words he whispered during the recording session were "I know where you live, Floyd."

I'm not sure about before but in the post Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Universe superman gave Batman a kryptonite ring that he took from Lex Luthor in Action Comics #654 (June 1990). The ring gave Lex Luthor cancer and caused the loss of his hand and then his life. (His mind was transferred to a new cloned body.) Superman gave it to Batman because he knew ...

It happened in Aquaman (1994 series) #2, cover date September 94. Aquaman loses his hand when Charybdis steals his ability to communicate with sea life and sticks Arthur's hand into a piranha-infested pool which results in the loss.


27

It seems this did happen in a 1994 comic. The results were somewhat less than stellar. The reasons, as I see it, are these: Bruce Wayne has a massive amount of emotional baggage -- his willpower is a result of his crusade to exact revenge on criminals. A ring attuned to emotions is not the sort of thing one gives to a person like that. Batman does not take ...

The DC Animated Universe continuity primarily consists of these animations. I have placed them in order with dates so you can watch them chronologically: Batman: The Animated Series (September 5, 1992 – 1995) Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993) Superman: The Animated Series (September 6, 1996 – 2000) The New Batman Adventures (September 13, 1997 – 1999) – ...

Batman only has the kryponite with him when he is going to be dealing with Superman. In Batman Beyond he keeps the kryptonite in a vault inside the Batcave when not in use. Bruce Wayne: This isn't the first time Superman has gone rogue. So I made sure I'd be ready if it ever happened again. I always hoped I'd never have to use it. This is referring to ...

From left to right: Sportsmaster Gork or Amygdala (see comments) Tracer Atomic Skull Evil Star Electrocutioner Hellgrammite All information found from Wikipedia. They were forced to battle other participants of Meta-Brawl including Sportsmaster, Bloodsport, Electrocutioner, Atomic Skull, Hellgrammite, Tracer, Evil Star, and Amygdala.

There was also a silver age Justice League story where the villain (Brain Storm, a personal favorite) gave physical handicaps to the heroes - Superman was blinded, Green Arrow lost his arms, and the Flash's legs were merged into a single leg. They of course learned how to triumph over their disabilities and defeat the foe. The Flash did it by super-speed-...

Batman the Animated Series (September 5, 1992) was inspired by a variety of previous animated series including the famed Max Fleischer's, Superman produced by Fleischer Studios in the 1940s and based on the artwork of producer and artist Bruce Timm. Timm was also inspired by the various Batman series, both animated and live action. You can see his homages in ...

As you mentioned, Joe Chill is a mugger. Since you tagged nolan-batman-trilogy, I'll quote the Wikipedia entry for his priorities in that series: Chill claims to have been "driven to mug" the Waynes by poverty Joe Chill isn't a serial killer. His goal is money/valuables not murdering powerful people and bringing the police down on him. Furthermore, I ...

By no means. Across the DC Animated Universe, there are quite a number of people who have figured it out. Broken down by series: Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures Ra's al Ghul figured it out all on his own, as revealed in "The Demon's Quest". He possibly told Ubu, his manservant, but we can't be certain Talia al Ghul removes Batman'...

In 2001, it was displayed in the Justice League animated TV episode The Enemy Below (Season 1 Episode 3). He cut off his hand so he could get free in time to save his only son, the prince of Atlantis, from being murdered by his brother Orm.

It doesn't appear that there is any reason he can't shape shift into other humans, albeit green ones. Beast Boy has the ability to morph and transform into any animal that he has seen himself or has seen in an illustration (as is the case when he shapeshifts into an animal such as an extinct dinosaur) wikipedia He also doesn't appear to be constrained ...

The general consensus is that given his ability to fight Batman in various situations across universes, he must have at least basic hand-to-hand combat skills. His quick reflexes and agility also allow him to compensate for his lack of refined martial skills. The DC wiki has this to say In addition to being a deadly and unpredictable physical combatant, ...

There are no other canon sources for Batman and his love of French onion soup. However, according to Batman Vol 1 #701 (2010) we find out that Batman's favorite food is mulligatawny soup, not French onion. This may imply that the writters do believe he loves soup, but cannot decide on the type. Alfred: Likewise, master Bruce. A tense few days, but I knew ...

It depends on the continuity According to the Batman wiki: The murderer is consistently identified as Joe Chill, though the mythos alternates between versions where Batman finds out and where Batman never finds out. Chill has also alternated between being a mere mugger who randomly selected the wealthy Waynes, and a hitman who murdered them ...

Precisely 13 months. He came into posession of this chunk in the beginning of Episode 18 (Season 1): "Injustice for All". The episode begins with Lex Luthor standing over Superman, brandishing the same kryptonite brick... or so it seems. It turns out that it was J'onn J'onzz, impersonating Superman in order to retrieve the kryptonite (and some ...

The concept of his costume being made of the blanket he was wrapped in was a Pre-Crisis explanation for how his clothing could be invulnerable, in the Post-Crisis series written by John Byrne called Man of Steel, his invulnerability is explained as a protective aura that extends to the clothing touching his skin. This is how he can have a torn or shredded ...

It's surprisingly hard to find examples of villains using the Bat-signal at all, considering how obvious of a target it is; even then, most examples are just baddies manipulating the signal to send Batman a message. However, there are a handful of times it's been used as an ambush point1: In Batman Confidential #11, part of another version of the Joker's ...

Sorry this is way late. The vote was 3-2 in favor of her staying. From context clues in the episodes "Wake the Dead" and "Star Crossed" we know that Flash was for her. Wonder Woman was against her. GL abstained, and that Superman broke the tie. It's left to speculate which way Batman and Manhunter voted. Here comes the point where we have to do a bit of ...

He is Dick Grayson. In one of the episodes, I clearly remember seeing a future version of Robin becoming Nightwing, which was Dick Grayson's superhero alterego. This is confirmed by the Teen Titans Wikia article on Robin.

No, the original Kobra agency in the DC Universe appeared in 1976 in DC's "Fangs of the Kobra." The Kobra agency was adapted for the Batman Beyond Universe. Kobra is an evil scientist and international terrorist, leader of the world-wide Kobra Cult. They work to destroy the world by bringing about Kali Yuga, an age of chaos. He has been a member of the ...

No she wasn't always a demigod nor stated to be... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Woman Golden Age she was simply a member of a tribe of Amazon Women... Silver Age she was was mortal but got her powers through blessings of the gods. Bronze Age she was molded from clay... Now in Modern Age she was molded from clay and given powers from different ...

In Mask of the Phantasm he originally goes out just wearing a ski mask. He comes back and tells Alfred he failed because they didn't fear him. Then he starts to look for a way to inspire fear in criminals and comes up with the Batman suit. Mask of the Phantasm is kind of like Batman Year One for the DCAU.

The most likely way for someone to be exposed to Joker Venom and Fear Gas at the same time would be for Joker and Scarecrow to team up. It has been a while since I read a Batman comic, but the way I remember it, Joker and Scarecrow don't get along very well. A little poking around on the interwebs confirms this memory. In every case I could find of The ...
