Our Video Game Comics series wraps up with “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” This comic, written by Tom Taylor with art from Jheremy Raapack, sets the stage for DC’s one-on-one fighting game. The story creates an alternate universe where Batman can face off against Wonder Woman and the Flash can fight Superman. But is that even really necessary? Do we need a whole comic book series to set up a video game? Maybe not, but we’re pleasantly surprised by the outcome here. Strap on your headphones for a listen while we take you to the Quiver and punch some people really far away. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
We wrap up our sidekick series with an open discussion on the role and function of sidekicks in comics. Are they necessary anymore? Why were they around in the first place? Is there a reason why there’s always some kind of implication of pedophilia with Batman and Robin? C’mon, Tumblr, tell me why.

We say goodbye to 2012 with a Christmas special. We watched a pair of classic holiday Batman cartoons, “Christmas with the Joker” and “Holiday Knights.” We talk about this stalwart of American animation, from its evolution and growth to its unique artistic design and incredible character design.
