Batman, Beautiful, and Birthday: HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOKER! CHISTORYOFTHEBATMAN Afternoon Gothamites! Today (August 1) according to the 1976 DC Calendar (panel 2 and 3), the civilian persona (real name unknown within comics) of The Joker was born! The Joker, considered Batmanโ€™s greatest enemy, was created by Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson in Batman (Vol 1) 1 which hit news stands on April 25, 1940. The villain's origin story was originally printed in February 1951's Detective Comics (Vol 1) 168: portrayed as a gangster in Gothamโ€™s criminal underworld, and dressed up as the Red Hood (cover art by Brian Bolland from Countdown (Vol 1) 31), the man falls into a vat of chemicals in a playing card factory and emerges with green hair, pale white skin and ruby lips highlighting a terrifying grin. To match his new look, the man decides to name him after the place that created him: Joker. The Clown Prince of Crime's evolution over the last 77 years is illustrated in all his beautiful chaos in hundreds of stories in comics, film and television. Seen as a mirror to our celebrated hero, Batman and Joker's relationship provides a strong representation in the war of "good vs evil", making the Harlequin of Hate one of the most popular villains in both the DC Universe and fiction. Happy Birthday to The Joker! Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽ‰

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Batman, and Birthday: 0. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER a HISTORYOFFHERNTMAN Good afternoon Gothamites and I hope you're all having a spectacular Sunday! Today (July 30), History of the Batman wants to wish actor and California Governor Arnold @Schwarzenegger a bat-tastic 70th birthday! For us Bat fans, Schwarzenegger portrayed Victor Fries aka Mr. Freeze opposite George Clooney's Batman in Joel Schumacher's 1997 live action film "Batman & Robin"! When molecular biologist Victor Fries suffers from a tragic accident while trying to preserve his dying wife Nora Fries, his heart turns cold and becomes the villain Mr. Freeze who can only survive in sub zero temperatures and plans to save his beloved wife by threatening to turn Gotham City into a frozen tundra. Schwarzenegger's Freeze was based on Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's "Batman: The Animated Series" award winning episode 'Heart of Ice' and design from Doug Moench and Kelley Jones' story "Frozen Assets" in Batman (Vol 1) 525 from 1995. "Batman & Robin" paying homage to the 1960s TV series 'Batman' gave us the punny and chilling performance from Schwarzenegger, making his role perhaps the most memorable in Schumacher's universally panned movie. We thank Mr. Schwarzenegger for brining to life a now cherished sympathetic rogue from Batman's gallery. Happy birthday Arnold! Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡๐ŸŽ‰โ›„๏ธโ„๏ธ

Apple, Batman, and Birthday: VOLUME ONE Good evening Gothamites and I hope you all had a spectacular Sunday! This week we'll have more of our session "What's In That Utility Belt: A History of Batman Gadgets" and more discussions about the evolution of the Caped Crusader! I leave you tonight with the now iconic cover to Batman (Vol 1) 497 and Batman: Knightfall Vol 1 by one of my favorite illustrators, Kelley Jones, who is celebrating his 55th birthday today (July 23)! Known for his Batman runs in the 1990s with writer Doug Moench, Jones has worked on several non-continuity Batman series including "Batman: Dark Joker the Wild" and the Vampire Batman Elseworlds saga beginning with "Batman and Dracula: Red Rain". Both of these comics were very dark and moody, bringing the Batman comic into the horror genre. Jones drew the covers for many of the chapters of the "Batman: Knightfall" crossover storyline as well (cover presented), then became the penciler of Batman with issue 515 (1995 - 1998) and worked on such story arcs as "Contagion". Going for style and mood over realism, Jones' is known for drawing Batman's ears incredibly long, giving him a demonic look and truly bringing the fear to the character's aesthetic that the Dark Knight himself strikes into the hearts of criminals. ๐Ÿฆ‡LISTEN ON ITUNES: http:-apple.co-2tCeD4p๐Ÿฆ‡to my podcast interview with Kelley Jones discussing his decades long contributions to the Batman mythology, be sure to listen and explore this artist's creative process! Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! Remember Gothamites, it's all about Peace, Love and Batman! โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽ‰

It was a Friday and I just came home from my last day of school. My friend isiah hooked up my MySpace page so a nigga can accumulate clout. As soon as you click my profile sponegebob and Patrick, strapped up with hella bands and two bad bitches twerking with a song from my lil Wayne play mix. When you scrolled all the way to the bottom my boy threw some porn on there for the real ones who be creeping to see who's in your top 5 of friends. I had some slow ass dial up computer my mom got from the flee market. I was home watching big wet ebonys booties vol 7. Watching asses clap with force strong enough to cause a sonic boom. Everything happen so fast. I look down making eye contact like it's o time. I swear a spirit took over me and I hit my meat with a nasty 4 piece combo. My shit felt like a volcano. I tried to stop but couldn't.Ended up pulling a plaxico burgess and took a shot to the foot. My grandma pulled up to crib swiftly. I can hear her coming down the stairs slow as fuck. My whole lower body numb. Im stuck in the chair tryna clear this sin off my screen. This computer ain't shutting off. I had to drop kick the monitor to shut off. My grandma walk in like "what you doing I bought you some Burger King". I'm using the spirit energy form my anvcestors to keep me alive. Whole nut drained my power levels. I went up stairs and fucked up them bk chicken fries. Shit was prob the greatest feeling ever. Ain't nothing like that first nut. forgot to wash my hands tho.

Bane, Batman, and Best Friend: GHISTORMSETHEBATMAN Evening Gothamites! For Father's Day, Thomas Wayne is celebrated but we cannot forget Bruce Wayne's father figure that aided him into becoming the man and hero he is today. Created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson, Alfred Pennyworth is Bruce Wayne's dedicated butler, assistant, best friend and father figure (left panel: Lee Weeks art from Batman Secret Files and Origins 1 (October, 1997) presented). In Pre-Crisis continuity, instead of Pennyworth he was Alfred Beagle, an over-weight clean shaven World War I field medic who by his father's last request wanted to be Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson's butler. Eventually Beagle discovered the Batcave housing a wounded Batman. Beagles medic and intelligence skills were an asset, making him an automatic family member. After William Austin's role in the Batman Black and White Serial, Beagle was changed to Alfred Pennyworth in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 83 (January 1944), returning from a health resort slimmed down with a thin mustache. Alfred was killed in Detective 328 (June 1964) and years later was revived in Detective 356 (October 1966) by scientist Brandon Crawford. In Post-Crisis continuity, Alfred was part of the Wayne family since Bruce was young, being his legal guardian after Thomas and Martha Wayne's death. After this event, he has a large part of being there when Bruce makes a vow to avenge his parent's death. Alfred is there even through the hardest times of Bruce's life, such as his back-breaking experience with the villain Bane and his apparent death against Darkseid. This particular loss of his "son" can be seen in Judd Winick's Batman (Vol 1) 687 from August 2009 (right panel: Alex Ross cover to issue 686 presented), part of the Batman R.I.P series after the death of Bruce Wayne. Continuing to be at his side in The New 52 and comics - media today, we commemorate both Thomas Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth for Father's Day, raising Bruce Wayne the man and Batman the hero. Thanks for following and stay tuned for more History of the Batman soon!

Alive, Batman, and Chill: w,p Happy FathersDay Gothamites! Today it is fitting to discuss father figures within the Batman mythology, the first being Thomas Wayne (cover panel to Batman (Vol 3) 22 by Jason Fabok)! Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and first appearing in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 33 from 1939, Thomas Wayne was a successful surgeon and respected patron of Gotham City, keeping alive the Wayne family name with the ownership of Wayne Manor and head of Wayne Enterprises. Married to socialite and philanthropist Martha Wayne, they had a son, Bruce, and at his young age, he faced Thomas and Martha's untimely death at the gun of mugger Joe Chill. Although established 78 years ago that his death would spawn the shadowy vigilante of Gotham City, the character of Thomas Wayne represented more than just that sole purpose. Thomas Wayne is shown as an influence past his tragic death in Finger's Detective Comics (Vol 1) 235 from September 1956 in "The First Batman" (panel 2) when Thomas' 'Bat-Man' costume inspires Bruce to track down Lew Moxon, the man who hired Joe Chill to kill his parents. As this classic tale was retold in Len Wein and Jim Aparo's "The Untold Legend of the Batman" from 1980 (panel 3), more modern stories told of Thomas as a brilliant surgeon aiding crime master Carmine Falcon in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's 13 arc epic "Batman: The Long Halloween" from 1997 (panel 4) and as a guide to Bruce in spirit. Thomas' most thrilling role has been as the Batman, established in Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert 2011 arc "Flashpoint" and Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's 3 issue side storyline "Batman: Knight of Vengeance" (panel 5). In this alternate timeline, Bruce is murdered in front of Thomas and Martha Wayne, driving Thomas into the lethal and vengeful Batman and Martha going insane and taking up the persona of The Joker. As a large part of New 52's Convergence arc (panel 6 by Ethan Van Sciver, Earth 2 (Vol 1) 17) and bringing words of wisdom to his son Bruce as Batman in DC Rebirth (panel 7 variant cover by Tim Sale, panel 8 and 9 from Batman (Vol 3) 22), Thomas Wayne proves to still be an important part of Batman's amazing history. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡
