I was skeptic when they announced that they would reboot the Batman stories, but now I'm glad they did

I read the 2 first arcs of the Batman issues and I was like "these the best Batman ever!!"

good art (except issue 12 were I have no idea why there were these horrible drawings at the end), thrilling suspense (I couldn't stop turning the pages), Batman acting like a detective (which was absent in Loeb's comics)

New 52's like the perfect Batman comics, I'm not the only one here feeling like this am I?

Also, question: should I read "Dark Knight" and "Batman and Robin"? are they good? because I started reading Detective Comics, but it bored me...

Yes, as Dark Knight is commonly now the place if you ever want to read Scarecrow and Mad Hatter, and Detective, for most of the recent developments of Penguin.

But no, I won't consider New 52s "The Best" - yet. I'll be the judge in several more months, given they uphold the use of Riddler this Summer.

Again, Penguin

The more versatile, the more used - probably the 2nd most used, behind Joker, Bat-nemesis in all comics, non-movie merchandise, and television.

Seriously, the greatest, most celebrated, Bat-Villains, for over 45 years, are:

Joker

Penguin

Catwoman (DO NOT pull that "she's not a villain anymore Bullcrap: as long as every single Bat-Show that has her and Batman Returns still immortalizingly cemented her general portrayal to the public)

Riddler

Oh geez....seriously...read this for an answer.

Orrr....I shall read it for you...after slaying Green Lantern Zharan, and stealing his ring for himself the corps sent wave after wave of Lanterns against him to "punish" him"...hundreds were slain, thousands more were wounded and drifting across the vastness of space..."The Corps would not know another such defeat for hundreds of millennia"...until defeated by the Guardians, creating an "explosion" in the form of a hole in time, hurling Doomsday in it to cross "thousands of light years in space".

Brainiac

Darkseid is not a superman villain

You mean like Deathstroke isn't a Batman villain?

Yeah Deathstroke isn't a Batman villain.

Cyborg Superman was his chief nemesis in the 90's.

Mongul in the 80's.

Brainiac is conceptually cool but he's incredibly bland and dull,especially the Johns version mentioned in the OP.

Not to mention that Brainiac is constantly revamped and is still most defined by his Animated appearance.

Darkseid is a New Gods and DC villain, more so than a Superman one.

I'll go Doomsday because he's never jobbed, is always relevant (due to his first story) and has the greatest feat (of killing Superman).

Pretty much,Brainiac needs a reboot every 3 years to stay relevant(same goes for Zod).The DCAU version was by far the best,Johns Brainiac had such a dull visual,ill defined power set and the same story(OMG he took Kandor).Frank Miller did that better in DKSA.

Yeah...but the problem with the Dark Knight Strikes Again is that it sucked monkey tits.

Again, this is the Brainiac most people thinks of as "Brainiac":

No, Brainiac is mostly defined in "his" humanoid Silver-Bronze age appearance, perhaps popularly seen in television screens, notably in "New Adventures of Superman" in the sixties, "Challenge of the Superfriends" in the seventies, and "Super Powers Show" in the mid eighties, in intro only, due to in the show itself, it had used its more robotic Copper Age appearance.

@bruxae said:

Brainiac, I guess Doomsday deserves a mention too.

No, Doomsday doesn't. After Lex and Brainiac, other fiends more establishedly, historically, more cunningly, all-around greater:

- Toyman

- Mister Mxyzptlk

- Prankster

- Bizarro Superman No.1

- Parasite

- Metallo (personally, I prefer his Bronze-Copper, late 00s appearance / costume (the one retained in Superman Family Adventures, although I find its art beneath my attention, over his John Byrne Terminator-like look)

- General Zod (reluctant "I guess")

Then, maybe, Doomsday, still known, and mostly only known, as "Death of Superman".

Batman: The World of the Dark Knight

I just want Wonder Woman OUT of Superman, not only because it's a shameless way of DC sayin' "If you love Superman, buy Wonder Woman too!" - Wonder Woman is NOT Lois Lane!

Probably the reasons why DC paired Supes with Wondy in the first place, is A) Wonder Woman's a Woman, and B) to TROLL "Clois" fans further, with a "Nyah, Nyah!", twistin' the knife against what was once their marriage, relationship.

I shall conclude this post; with I'd probably hate anyone DC tried to pair Clark with (Lucy Lane, Wonder Woman) who's not Lois Lane, vice versa (that douchebag Jonathan Carroll) anyways.

Replace dopey "Jack Nimball" with ol' Benjamin Franklin-lookalike "Winslow Schott", and Amalak with Metallo (whom Bronze Age version would not appear until a year after this image anyways), and call it a "rogues gallery".
