Happy Anniversary Batman:The Animated Series

I couldn’t call myself a geek if I didn’t say something about this milestone!

This is the big one! Quarter of a century since the greatest animated superhero series of all time aired for the first time.

Batman TAS was a game changer, Not only neatly setting up it’s own mythos, but paving the way for future animated series’ like Superman, Static Shock, Batman Beyond, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. It also gave us the best possible voice of Batman in Kevin Conroy! To this day when I read any Batman dialogue in comics, it’s in that voice! And speaking of iconic voices… Mark Hamil anyone? Who’d have thought Luke Skywalker would be such a great Joker? And remain that way for 25 years! Seriously, these guys are still voicing Batman and Joker all these years later, fans just don’t want anyone else.

But the show wasn’t just great because of the voices, it also took the liberty of creating some new friends for Batsy to play with! Like Lock-Up, Baby Doll, Sewer King, Renee Montoya and Condiment King.

Oh and there’s one more…. Harley Quinn. That’s right! The creepy clown girl we all love got her start as eyecandy in the Joker’s gang! And now she is one of the most popular female character in comics.

This just shows how comited the writers and creators of this magnificent series were!

The Great Game. aka 20 Questions.

The Game is Afoot!

Appreciate the Sherlock reference? Good! Just answering a few questions (20 to be exact!) to let you inside my mind!

Question Number the First: What is your name? Austin Geoffry Keith Burrows!

Question Number the Second: What is your Quest? To force my opinions on strangers on the internet!

Question Number the Third: What is your favourite colour? Blue!

Question Number the Fourth: Where do you live? I COME FROM THE LAND DOWN UNDER! LA LA LA VEGEMITE SANDWICH!

Question Number the Fifth: Marvel or DC? Marvel over DC… Wait.. DC over Marvel!

WAIT! Marvel. DC…………… Batman. Just Batman.

Question Number the Sixth: Favourite Movie? The Dark Knight! The best Batman movie to date, and even if it’s not for long, I’ll always have the sentimental attachment to it.

Question Number the Seventh: How tall are you? 6’4! so, Tall! but a skinny tall.

Question Number the Eighth: Do you have any siblings? I have two older Siblings! A 28 year old brother and a 25 year old sister!

Question Number the Ninth: Favourite food? I LOVE ITALIAN FOOD!!

Question Number the Tenth: What is the last thing you bought?  I’ve been working on a Urban Batman cosplay so I bought some armour for that. (Half way there. Go grab a drink, take a break, I’ll wait…)

Question Number the Eleventh: (Welcome back!) Favourite Marvel Hero? Either Wolverine or Spiderman… I do love Cap too though.

Question Number the Twelfth: Favourite DC Hero? I’d love to say Batman, but I recently went back and read some Nightwing, the Bludhaven arc to be exact. And I just love Dick’s journey after he breaks away from Bruce. So, Nightwing is my favourite DC character at the moment.

Question Number the Thirteenth: Favourite style of music? Music.. I really don’t have a ‘favourite’. But I was pretty much raised by Elvis and Sinatra, so I’d say Swing/Crooners.

Question Number the Fourteenth: Favourite TV series? Okay this changes almost daily! I’ll do an article on this in a few weeks! But off the top of my head, I’d have to say… TV.

Question Number the Fifteenth: If you could have any superheroes powers for a day, who’s would it be? Arm-Fall-Off-Boy! Who wouldn’t love to be able to pop their arms off and use them as a bat-like weapon…… yes, that’s a real power. no, it’s not my real answer. I’d probably pick Martian Manhunter. I just think he has it really well. He won the power jackpot! All the powers of Superman, Plus Shape-shifting, Telepathy, Invisibility, Intangibility all kinds of cool!

Question Number the Sixteenth: If you could live in a fantasy world, which one would it be? I’d love to be a Jedi, like before they all got slaughtered.

Question Number the Seventeenth: Favourite Cartoon? The old JLU animated series.

Question Number the Eighteenth: What are your hobbies besides movies and comic books? I love to sing and dance/perform on stage in general. I want to be a professional actor.

Question Number the Nineteenth: Relationship status? As Taken as Liam Neeson’s Family.

Question Number the Twentieth: What is most important in life? Serious answer time here. All I really want out of life is to share the things that I love with others, and hopefully inspire the same kind of passion.

 

So that’s me! Hopefully you enjoyed this little taste of me. That sounds dirty ahahahahah

Peace out Homies!
