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 one ...

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) – ...

No. The Legion of Super-Heroes are a team of superheroes who live in the 30th and 31st centuries. They have had a significant run of their own, and date back to comics about a young version of Superman regularly traveling forward in time to have adventures with them. Additionally, DC One Million was a 1998 crossover event set in the 853rd century, and ...

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-...

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 ...

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'...

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 intentionally (...

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 ...

The obvious answer here is that Bruce never wanted Terry to be Batman in the first place. When the story starts, Bruce has a hard time trusting Terry, and it takes a long time before he sees him as anything other than a hard-headed teen. After so long mistrusting, it would be hard still for Bruce to explain to Terry his emotions at any point (something Bruce ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

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.

Yes they do. As per http://dc.wikia.com/ In the Golden and Silver Age era of DC comics, such characters routinely broke the Fourth Wall, usually as a convenience for introducing a story. After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, comic storytelling took a more mature turn, and few characters demonstrated this ability. DC Characters known to break the ...

As far as I know Floyd Lawton AKA Deadshot has never had a problem taking off his mask in the comics. Or in the cartoons.(Justice League Unlimited: Task Force X)

It Depends According to the Superman Wiki page, and more generally, the heat vision page on the Superpower Wiki, heat vision doesn't actually affect one's vision per-se - it is more that it is heat rays coming from the eyes (hence the misnomer 'Heat vision'). However, the below quote form the aforementioned Superman Wiki page explains that: [Heat vision]...

No it doesn't. Placing the the Dark Knight Returns (DKR) between Batman: The Animated Series (TAS) and Batman Beyond (BB) would introduce way too many plot inconsistencies. In BB we already know all the Robins through exposition and the costume display in the Batcave. There is no mention of Carrie Kelly the Robin of DKR. We know that the Joker was killed ...

In Adventures Of Superman 595, Superman and Darkseid fight on Apokolips. Their beams meet briefly at point-blank range during this fight and appear evenly matched. (The fight itself is interrupted by Brainiac-13.)
