This should have gone up last Wednesday for a whole week of Bat-centric toys, but I was on vacation. Now you get this today, another Bat-entry on Wednesday, and a Special Mystery Figure on Friday! Oooh…
Mattel had a tough decision to make when naming this figure. “Jean-Paul Valley as Batman” is obviously correct, but there are all kinds of reasons you might not want that hanging from a peg. While “Knightsend Batman” would have technically been more appropriate than “Knightfall Batman”, I think Knightfall is more likely to be familiar to the general public or lapsed fans as the story where Bane (this series’ build-a-figure) broke Bruce Wayne’s back and then Wayne found the one insane sociopath in all of Canada to appoint as his successor. Way to go, Bruce.

Holy Episodes, Batman! JC & Rita finally stopped fooling around and put together episode 8 of Transmissions From Atlantis. In this action packed installment, we review not one, not two but all three of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Included in that of course is the Dark Knight Rises, the latest blockbuster. Is Bane as good as Heath Ledger’s Joker? We discuss in depth.
We’ll also let you in on the Jesus crab, which university has an Alien Hunter Course and 15 Sci-Fi Predictions that came true.
Sherlock in the modern world is hardly a novel concept but there appears to be a battle brewing as to who does it better – the Americans or the Brits? It’s CBS’ Elementary versus BBC’s Sherlock. Who wins? We’ll tell you.
We’ll talk Game of Thrones, as Elijah Wood (Frodo) got to sit on the Iron Throne and George R.R. Martin talked about which scene he is dreading seeing on the HBO television show.
Rita previews Kaza Kingsley’s Erec Rex fantasy series.
For our Doctor Who segment, we ask the question – How has the Doctor changed in the last 50 years? When will Matt Smith be leaving and what is the Doctor Who Experience?

To say that fan expectations were high for “The Dark Knight Rises” is a little bit of an understatement. We’ve waited about four years to see the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, a series that has been well-received by audiences and critics alike, and has set a new standard for superhero films.
I purposefully avoided reading many reviews before going to see “The Dark Knight Rises,” so I could walk into the theater with a clean slate. After watching the movie yesterday, I started reading through reviews and blog entries about the film, and I must confess, I was somewhat surprised to discover there’s been a bit of a backlash against the film by some fans. While some didn’t seem to think this film was as good as 2008’s “The Dark Knight,” I personally thought “The Dark Knight Rises” was a powerful, gritty and emotionally moving film, and I believe it is a fitting conclusion to Nolan’s Batman saga.
“The Dark Knight Rises” picks up eight years after the events of “The Dark Knight.” Although Gotham law enforcement has cleaned up the city streets and reduced the crime rate, all is not as well as it seems. Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) has become a recluse, retreating to his mansion in a self-imposed exile after letting Batman take the fall for crimes committed by Harvey Dent/Two-Face. He’s convinced that if the public knew the truth about Dent, who is regarded as a hero, it would destroy all the good Dent had accomplished before he turned evil. Continue reading

It took me a long time to build Bane, but I’m glad I did.
I’ve already got a perfectly good DC Direct figure of the Brazilian Bat-Breaker (not to mention the Arkham Asylum version I just bought); but I’ve never really felt that you can mix DC Direct with Mattel. They just don’t look right side-by-side in my opinion.
I’ve always been a big fan of Bane. This is mostly due to Knightfall and the ensuing Knight-prefixed storylines being some of my nostalgic favorites. They’re nowhere near consistent quality-wise, but it’s the biggest and most involving event of my comic collecting heydays. All people tend to think about is big, muscle-bound Bane breaking Bruce Wayne over his knee. Rarely does the amazing setup that led up to that point get mentioned. Well, until Nolan’s recent decision, anyway.
Welcome back once again to Chuck’n Comics! Where sitting on the couch in your underwear in the middle of the day is no longer weird but a fact of life and completely accepted by everyone in my social circle.
Okay, that’s a lie. But let’s disregard that awkward little tangent and get into our next comic review: Avengers Vs. X-Men #1!
Short and sweet: The mutant species is dying off. There are only handful of them left on the planet. The Phoenix force, once inhabiting the body of Jean Grey, is alive and well and heading to Earth. Destroying at least one planet in it’s wake.
The X-Men are far removed from the mutants we knew and loved just a few short years ago. They have hardened.
