The Thing and Ace, The Bat-Hound



I always got a kick out of the Silver Age tales that featured Ace, but it wasn't until the animated Batman Beyond started to feature him that I really began to like the character. The idea of a dog sidekick to Batman suddenly makes sense when paired with the future Bruce Wayne. The episodes featuring Ace are some of my favorites, especially the one that features his origin. The classic Ace was featured in an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which was a hoot, and of course in most episodes of Krypto the Super Dog. Hmmm is it too much to hope for a cameo in The Dark Knight Rises?

yes it is far too much to hope for, since that would require a sense of humor and fun that Nolan's films never have.

Love how you used the Sphinx shadow and changed it to Ace.

Thanks. I always thought that MTIO cover was such a tease.
