Alive, Batman, and Chill: w,p Happy FathersDay Gothamites! Today it is fitting to discuss father figures within the Batman mythology, the first being Thomas Wayne (cover panel to Batman (Vol 3) 22 by Jason Fabok)! Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and first appearing in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 33 from 1939, Thomas Wayne was a successful surgeon and respected patron of Gotham City, keeping alive the Wayne family name with the ownership of Wayne Manor and head of Wayne Enterprises. Married to socialite and philanthropist Martha Wayne, they had a son, Bruce, and at his young age, he faced Thomas and Martha's untimely death at the gun of mugger Joe Chill. Although established 78 years ago that his death would spawn the shadowy vigilante of Gotham City, the character of Thomas Wayne represented more than just that sole purpose. Thomas Wayne is shown as an influence past his tragic death in Finger's Detective Comics (Vol 1) 235 from September 1956 in "The First Batman" (panel 2) when Thomas' 'Bat-Man' costume inspires Bruce to track down Lew Moxon, the man who hired Joe Chill to kill his parents. As this classic tale was retold in Len Wein and Jim Aparo's "The Untold Legend of the Batman" from 1980 (panel 3), more modern stories told of Thomas as a brilliant surgeon aiding crime master Carmine Falcon in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's 13 arc epic "Batman: The Long Halloween" from 1997 (panel 4) and as a guide to Bruce in spirit. Thomas' most thrilling role has been as the Batman, established in Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert 2011 arc "Flashpoint" and Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's 3 issue side storyline "Batman: Knight of Vengeance" (panel 5). In this alternate timeline, Bruce is murdered in front of Thomas and Martha Wayne, driving Thomas into the lethal and vengeful Batman and Martha going insane and taking up the persona of The Joker. As a large part of New 52's Convergence arc (panel 6 by Ethan Van Sciver, Earth 2 (Vol 1) 17) and bringing words of wisdom to his son Bruce as Batman in DC Rebirth (panel 7 variant cover by Tim Sale, panel 8 and 9 from Batman (Vol 3) 22), Thomas Wayne proves to still be an important part of Batman's amazing history. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡

America, Black History Month, and Books: Black Marvel Girl Following @Black MarvelGirl Let's celebrate Daisy Bates who walked black kids to white schools every day. History books never mention her name #Black History Month ETS LIKES 444 432 Repost from @blaxcellence_ Daisy Bates was born in Arkansas in 1914 and as a child she was outraged by racial discrimination. She didn't take it for granted. Later she discovered that her mother was killed by white rapists who were not judged for their crime. In 1940's Bates and her husband began to publish Arkansas State Press, the paper that advocated rights of black people. In 1952 Bates became the President of The NAACP in Arkansas. In 1957 nine Little Rock black kids were going to enter all-white school to get better education. 9 children were met with National Guards! Just imagine it โ€” National Guards were set to resist 9 school kids. Daisy Bates tried to step in but she was arrested. Nevertheless Daisy's effort was mentioned by the White House and POTUS Dwight Eisenhower took care of desegregation of schools. After this incident Bates continued to work for black community helping people to live a better life. Thanks Daisy! She's a real role model who started civil rights activism when MLK was just a kid. blackexcellence blackperfection blackbeauty blackbusiness africanamerican blackcommunity melanin blackpride blackout america usa blackscience education diversity civilrights daisybates

Batman, Books, and Children: The POP art power behind flying onomatopoeias and the smooth ride of the Batmobile in the 1966 television series 'Batman' were just a few of the now memorable moments in the twice a week primetime program. But the stars of the show, Adam West and Burt Ward, playing Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder had fans returning the same bat-time, same bat-channel each week. Dozier cast West as Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, Batman in part after seeing West perform as the James Bond-like spy Captain Q in a Nestlรฉ Quik television ad. The series took the tradition of Batman into uncharted territory, oftentimes mocking the character's heritage with trite dialogue and overly campy plot devices. The idea of this adaptation of the DC Comics mythos was to entertain adults with a funny parody of the heroes and villains simultaneously proving fun action adventures for children of all ages. West became the perfect candidate to deliver both sides of the show to its audience with his Shakespearian-esque deliveries of lines all while keeping the episodes lighthearted and full of moral messages for the youths. Alongside the suave millionaire Bruce Wayne was his young ward Dick Grayson, portrayed by Burt Ward, who was secretly his sidekick in crime fighting, Robin the Boy Wonder. Creating his own iconic 'Holy!' catchphrases with every new episode, Ward's enthusiastic persona permeated naturally into the optimistically loyal character of Dick Grayson. Together, Bruce and Dick's friendly and heroic dynamic became the stronghold of the show, immediately welcoming in the large audiences viewing the tv show, with an astounding 52% watch rate when the pilot aired January 12, 1966. Because 'Batman' literally brought the comic books to the small screen, the dying sales of Batman stories were revived and grew higher than ever in the late 1960s. Without Adam West's Batman, the hero in DC Comics may have fallen into obscurity in the Silver Age. RIPBatman โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
