So apparently in last weekend’s Batman: Brave and the Bold, Batman got amnesia, thought he was a mobster, grew a mustache and put on an awesome cape, and took over Gotham. But that’s not even the most awesome part of the episode. No, the most awesome part is when Black Canary, the Huntress and Catwoman teamed up to bring Batman down as the Birds of Prey, and sang a song about fucking DC’s superheroes.
Seriously, the song is only barely trying to not say Aquaman has a tiny dick, and it’s spectacular. And it was written by the mama-bird of prey herself, Gail Simone, who was probably cackling the entire time she wrote it. It boggles my mind that there are some people out there who don’t find this show totally awesome. (Via Comics Alliance)

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
