Insane Dark Multiverse Versions of Batman
Contrary to the worlds of the normal Multiverse, those from the Dark Multiverse have their names preceded by a minus sign, such as Earth -52 compared to Earth 0, for instance. Each of those inverse worlds shown so far bears some degree of thematic resemblance to its positive counterpart. And each of these worlds has their own Batman, here are a few.
Why Wasn't Mr Sinister in the X-Men Movies?
Mister Sinister has quite an intricate comic book history since his 1987 full debut, having been powered by Apocalypse, resurrected multiple times through the use of clones, and having interacted with the time-traveling Cyclops and Jean Grey many years before they were born. Nathaniel Essex was originally a Victorian-era scientist obsessed with the theory of evolution and genetic mutations. He predicted and studied the rise of mutant-kind before investigating the potential of young versions of prominent mutants such as Magneto, Wolverine, Juggernaut, Colossus, and Magik.
Why Thanos Was So Different In Endgame
After Avengers Endgame came out back in 2019 one of the most common problems, I’ve heard about it is that the characterisation of the main villain, Thanos, just seems off. This is comparing the character from Endgame to the previous Avengers instalment, Infinity War.

Alternate Versions of Spider-Man Top Story - August 2022
Outside of the films, quite a lot of versions of Spider-Man exist throughout the multiverse, with Marvel Comics showcasing those possibilities in events such as Spider-Verse. Some of the characters in question have gone on to become complete mainstays in the comics like Miles Morales, while some remain under-the-radar favourites or fun pieces of trivia.

Why Daredevil is the Saviour of the MCUTop Story - August 2022
From several recent announcements from Marvel, it looks like we are going to be seeing a lot more of the character of Daredevil in the next few years and I believe this is by design. It’s no secret that the Netflix Daredevil television series was the most popular of the bunch and was brought to life brilliantly by actor Charlie Cox. The series debuted in 2015 and had a three-season run spanning 39 episodes before being cancelled along with all of the other Netflix shows back in 2018. Looking back now we can see that was because Marvel was planning to redo their shows to tie much more closely to the MCU.
FOX Planned a Civil War Between the X-Men and Fantastic 4
In 2016 Marvel released Captain America: Civil War, the third instalment to the Captain America series. But rival movie studio FOX had a very similar idea and at one point was floating around with the concept of doing a version of the famous 2008 storyline for themselves.
Depressing Future Versions Of Superheroes
Batman – Batman The Animated Series Though we don’t see Bruce die in the DCAU (at least not yet) we can see the person he becomes in his old age, which to a certain extent is simply alone. Once he’s given up being Batman his company is partly taken over and he’s pushed out and becomes a recluse, similar to how we see him in The Dark Knight Rises. At some point, Alfred must have died and as detailed in “Epilogue” Terry mentions how “Dick, Barbara, Tim, Selina they all loved you but eventually every single one of them left you” with Bruce’s response simply being that they didn’t have the “heart for the mission”. Although this shows Bruce’s true obsession with his mission, he’s a character that is also full of regret despite the good he's no doubt done.
Marvel’s First MCU Was Animated
Marvel’s MCU is quite possibly one of if not the biggest ongoing franchise today, as of April 2022 there are 27 movies and 6 tv shows that are officially part of it (daredevil and the rest of the Netflix shows are still up in the air at this point). Now due to their success companies and studios everywhere have attempted to replicate this with mixed results. Look at DC with their TV and film universe or even the complete failure that was the Dark Universe. But what if I told you this wasn’t Marvel’s first attempt at a joint universe that encapsulates numerous characters and stories, what if I told you they’ve done this once before outside of comics in the medium of television. In the 90’s.
The Saddest Moment In The DCAU
There are many sad moments throughout the DCAU which is unsurprising considering how many different tv shows and movies comprise it, we've even covered many of them in a different article a couple of years ago. However, one of, if not the saddest moment in the entire universe may very well be the prologue of Batman Beyond. Batman's last night.
Why Now Is The Perfect Time For A Batman Beyond Live Action Movie
Fans have been begging Warner Bros. and DC for a live-action batman beyond movies for years and I believe now is the right time to do just that. Batman Beyond was released in January 1999 and would eventually bolster, 3 seasons, 52 episodes and one direct-to-video movie. The series would see a new Batman, Terry McGinnis in the year 2039 who would discover the Bat suit and eventually be mentored by an aged Bruce Wayne.
