lego-justice-league-gotham-city-breakoutAnother lukewarm entry to the LEGO DC Super Heroes line, Justice League: Gotham City Breakout features two separate stories. First, Nightwing (Will Friedle) and Batgirl (Sarah Hyland) convince Batman (Troy Baker) to finally take a vacation leaving Gotham City in the hands of Superman (Nolan North). The trip to visit his old teacher Madame Mantis (Amy Hill) unveils a plot by Deathstroke (John DiMaggio) and Bane (Eric Bauza) to use a normally peaceful underground tribe to take over the world. While providing its moments, the adventure begins to drag during its second-half.

The other storyline features Superman having more trouble with the super-villains of Gotham City than he expected. Tricked by the Joker (Jason Spisak), Superman accidentally causes a break-out at Arkham Asylum. Even calling on the help of Cyborg (Khary Payton) and Wonder Woman (Grey Griffin), the heroes struggle to stop the chaos eventually allowing Robin (Scott Menville) to show them what crime-fighting in Gotham is all about.

Jixu Studios takes Stephanie Brown‘s terrifically amusing version of the history of Batman presented in Bryan Q. Miller and Dustin Nguyen’s Batgirl #15 and animates with humorous results (even if it does leave off one of my favorite lines – “I’m an acrobat!”).

If you’ve got five free minutes this afternoon take a look at this Nightwing fan film from Jeremy Le & Danny Shepherd inspired by “inspired by Christopher Nolan’s world as well as the amazing game ‘Batman Arkham City.'” The movie pits Nightwing against the Red Hood (with an apparently Spaceballs-inspired helmet so large it borders on comical).

“War of the Robins” begins as Damian assembles all of Batman‘s former sidekicks together (minus, of course, a still un-rebooted Stephanie Brown) and announces his plans to defeat each of them proving himself to be the best Robin. He begins, not surprisingly with his most heated rival, Tim Drake.
