Batman #20 – by Tom King, David Finch, Danny Miki, Trevor Scott, and Jordie Bellaire – is the final chapter of the I Am Bane story arc. It’s a seriously vicious conclusion between the Dark Knight and Bane. No gadgets, no elaborate plans… just a brutal brawl between Bruce Wayne and Bane! Who’s left standing and how did they win the battle? Where will it go from there? To celebrate the action-packed issue, I thought it would be fun to reflect on some of their best battles in the comics! For simplicity’s sake, I stuck to encounters between them in the primary DC universe.

“Do you need Spider-Man in Venom’s first movie?” I’m guessing 9 out of 10 comic book fans will quickly answer “yes” to that question. After all, Spidey plays a huge role in Eddie Brock becoming Venom (read Amazing Spider-Man #300), and then the wall-crawler continues to play a big part in Venom’s story. The frightening foe’s a twisted reflection of the friendly hero and the two have had their fair share of memorable stories over the years. Like it or not, they’re strongly connected. That said, can you rework Venom’s story to not include Spider-Man? Yes, it’s definitely possible. Should you, though? Well, that all depends on what they’re bringing to the table, doesn’t it?

Obviously, the Marvel Universe is a biiiiiiig place and it’s full of talented fighters, so some of your favorites may not appear below. Seriously, we’d have dozens and dozens of names on an “honorable mentions” list – Moon Knight, Deadpool, Taskmaster, so on and so on!

Get Marvel Select figures here: http://bit.ly/2mBLT7H
When I receive messages from new Junkies asking what action figure line is a good one to start with, I have found that I am always pointing them to Diamond Select Toys’ Marvel Select line. Why? You simply cannot get more bang for your hard earned buck. DST’s signature oversized library book spine packaging (amazingly helpful for storage) and some of the best sculpts in this price range make the Marvel Select line a must have for collectors. But here’s the kicker: most of them are just $25 on MidtownComics.com making them the ultimate starter kit figures for the “Make Mine Marvel” crowd that is looking for a little something extra in their Select choice.

The third Wolverine solo movie, Logan, is almost in theaters! There’s a lot of reasons to get excited – like the cinematic debut of X-23 and the R rating – and you can bet we’re pretty much counting down the days until we can watch Hugh Jackman unleash as the adamantium clawed X-Man. In the meantime, let’s prepare for the movie by reading some comics that Logan appears to be loosely inspired by, and other comics that just might one day serve as inspiration for an X-23 movie!
