The Secret Society of Super-Villains #12

Yes! I’ll take all of it, please!!! Here we’ve got vintage ’70s DC action figures, along with a Barbie-style Wonder Woman doll, the four story Wayne Foundation, and the Batmobile with an exploding bridge! That’s a whole lot of fun and excitement packed into this page!

I seem to remember, as a kid, there being a Barbie mansion that looked suspiciously similar to the Wayne Foundation pictured here – what do you wanna bet they just took the same toy and gave it a new cardboard backdrop?!

I’m guessing that a lot of you don’t recognize Isis, since she’s not a major DC character like most of the others. Well, a few years ago I stumbled across her TV show while flipping through the channels. My first thought was, “Wow, this is a total rip-off of Wonder Woman!” But it turns out that Isis was actually on TV first!

Batman: The Video Game Series

February 1995

X-Force #43

One of the best-known and -loved cartoons of the ’90s has been turned into a video game! Yes, the levels in The Adventures of Batman and Robin are actually based on episodes of Batman: The Animated Series.

I actually had the Game Gear version of this (which I don’t think I ever got very far in), but apparently that’s an entirely different game from the SNES version. From what I’ve read, it sounds like the SNES version is considered the definitive one, so I’d be curious to see it someday. However, the Sega CD version (also very different from either the SNES or Game Gear versions), also has cut scenes that some consider to be a “lost episode” of the series – definitely something I’d like to check out!
