I Love Me Some Robins!

Longtime Henchies know that I’m a big fan of Robin. He’s one of my all-time favorite superheroes. And now animated fun guy Noah Sterling has used his nifty YouTube channel to run through the history of all the Robins. Fun times!

Yeah, the history of the Robins is weird. But fundamentally, Robin is awesome. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Also, since this video was made, I think DC is retconning their retcon and Stephnie Brown did serve as Robin. It’s confusing, but important to note.

Double also, while I’m on the subject, I’m starting to wonder if my disinterest in DC Comics as a whole these days has anything to do with the lack of a fundamental Robin. The team of Batman and Robin hasn’t been a thing for a while now. Damian Wayne is, technically, the current Robin, but he hasn’t been his father’s sidekick for years. He’s off running the Teen Titans and hanging out with Superman’s son. Tim Drake has been retconned back to being Robin, but he’s also been his own man for a while, and now he’s running Young Justice. Duke Thomas became Batman’s new partner, but DC went and gave him super-powers and made him The Signal instead, and now he’s a member of the Outsiders.

So DC simply does not have a Batman and Robin team, which is really disappointing. As much as I love Robin, I mostly love him in the context of being Batman’s partner. So I dunno, I think I’m just griping. Fun video, at least.

A Proper Lightsaber Duel

The geniuses at FXitinPost have re-made the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: A New Hope. My hat is off to them. That battle is pretty lame, and they turn it into the coolest lightsaber duel of the entire franchise!

These is a really well-done editing job, and some great lightsaber choreography! My hat is off to everyone involved!

Let’s Keep This Star Wars Train Rolling with Darth Vader by Tell It Animated!

I hadn’t planned on posting so much Star Wars content, but when it’s a random Tuesday and Tell It Animated is awesome, how about a Darth Vader video?

This guy does great work! These are fun videos. I wish I had the talent to come up with a fun YouTube series. I’d be on easy street!

I Thought We Were Getting a New Spider-Man Trailer…

Word on the internet was that a new trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home was going to drop on Monday…so I didn’t post anything. And I didn’t have anything planned to post today. C’mon! That should be a good trailer!

So let’s just enjoy another Zebra Corner video where Mahk takes down Chevy. And this time, it’s animated and in LEGO!

Good for them! That’s some really nice production value and quality comedy. Mahk and the gang are always reliably funny, and good stuff for a Tuesday!

But I’m still hoping for that new Spider-Man trailer soon!

Animated Hulk and Chucky!

I feel behind on following the fine dude at Tell It Animated, so let’s check out a couple of them! The dude found some sponsorship and is now producing even better videos, so good for him!

First up is the Incredible Hulk!

And then Chucky, the killer doll!

Did you know there’s been a whole bunch of Chucky movies lately, all following the same ongoing storyline? I didn’t until I saw this video. Who ever even heard of Cult of Chucky? Anyway, the Chucky movies are getting rebooted, so it don’t matter too much anymore!
