Answer: My selections were based on the writing. I wasn’t all that familiar with the likes of Ocean Master, Zod, Clayface, or Count Vertigo prior to picking up their books but was mightily impressed by their respective stories.
fsmn36 also writes: “These reviews are interesting to me as I’m not a fan of (most of) Batman’s villains. They tend to seem ridiculous and like they shouldn’t be a challenge (well, ok, I give Clayface his transformation power).”
Answer: Well, it really depends on the villain. The Penguin is a crime lord and has the resources of his criminal empire to draw from. The Riddler is brilliant. The Joker is psychotic and completely unpredictable. The Scarecrow can trigger one’s innermost fears. Mr. Freeze – well, he can freeze people.
fsmn36 also writes: “Also, why can’t Gotham Police ever keep them in jail/Arkham for more than a day?”
Answer: True. You’d think that after the fiftieth breakout, they might want to consider yanking its license and moving the prisoners to more secure locations like Belle Reve or Hypermax…which haven’t fared any better this month.

Answer: Akemi and I just completed the first season of Attack on Titan. Overall, I found the lack of answers incredibly frustrating. It’s been a long while since I actually watched an anime series I thoroughly enjoyed. Steins Gate was fine. The first two-thirds of the first season of Sword Art Online was also fine. Would love to find something great.
PBMom writes: “Promise to catch up, but I have the first news of pilots renewed. Sleepy Hollow is a YES.”
Answer: Yep. Congratulations to everyone (and myself) who predicted it would get a second season pick-up. Now let’s wait and see how the other shows fare. The Blacklist and Agents of SHIELD are looking good. Lucky 7 and Ironside, not so much.

Answer: Hey, you’re right. Thanks for reminding me. I’ve got to get around to doing a Days of Stargate Universe Past!
