Batman and Darkwing Duck

Three episodes in, and I am enjoying Gotham.  To my surprise, Oswald Cobblepot is the most interesting character so far.  The actors playing Gordon, Bullock, Alfred and Bruce all play their parts well, and the production values are very good for a television series.  Some of the character ages seem to be off and Jada Pinkett chews the scenery a bit much, but those aren't huge drawbacks.  I'll be sticking with the show.

Here is a team up, Frank Castle vs Christopher Chance. The Punisher vs the Human Target.

If this was on the stands today, I'd buy it.

Darkwing Duck has been referred to as a Batman knockoff, but really, while they do have a lot in common (they have that whole non-superpowered night avenger thing going on) they have more that separate them, and their personalities would make for a very interesting story. If it was in my hands, for two-thirds of it Bats would be trying to get DW to focus, and for the rest he'd be working to keep up!

Hopefully there won't be too much of a wait before we see DW teaming up with Hong Kong Phooey! :)

"I am vengeance!
I am the night!
I am Batman!"

"I am the terror that flaps in the night!
I am the itch you cannot reach!
I AM Darkwing Duck!"

I think there's a theme here :p

Believe it or not, there actually _is_ an on-line fanfic pastiche where Batman and DW did team up! Discourtesy of some interdimensional tech stolen from Nega-Duck by Steelbeak. Unfortunately the pastiche was never completed. :-(
