Batman’s utility belt includes lollipops and lots of other mysteries

For decades, people have asked “What does Batman keep in his utility belt?” The answer has always been a necessity for Schrodinger: Any story needs him to have or be lacking at that exact moment. Recently, a story needs him to have lollipops.

Why? Because he joined a Justice League search party to find out if Superman’s lost son was kidnapped by a superpower or swallowed up by a time vortex or infiltrated. an underground mole civilization or not – a perfectly reasonable worry. But it turned out that Jon was only flying out at night like he’d been told not to, going a little too far, getting lost and panicking.

Poor Jon.

What else is happening in the pages of our favorite comics? We will let you know. Welcome to Funnies Monday, Polygon’s weekly list of the books our comics editors loved over the past week. It’s the social pages of superheroes’ lives, the reading recommendations section, the “look at this amazing piece of work”. There may be some damage. There may not be enough context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the final edition, read this.)

Nightwing # 89

“Hey, Jon. Guess what Batman keeps in his belt?' said Nightwing before handing Jon Kent/Superboy a lollipop from Batman's utility belt in Nightwing #89 (2022).

There are all four pages in this issue Nightwing that they all have a moment worthy of inclusion in the circle, but the purpose of the entire flashback to the first time Batman and Superman’s oldest children meet is to remind the reader that this is all everything Robin has for Dick. Helping Batman only scares the people he wants to scare, not the people he’s trying to help.

New mutant # 24

Fans of Grant Morrison’s X-Men movies will be delighted to know that No-Girl has finally gotten her own body instead of a brain hanging in a jar! Her new mutant’s name is Cerebella! It’s so adorable!

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow # 8

With the last problem of Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow I can say with certainty that this book is comforting from front to back, applicable Sandman A space adventure vibe starring Supergirl and an unlucky young space kid. The best thing Tom King has done since Mister Miracle and Bilquis Evely just dropped the mic on every post. Collected volume runs out in July, so if you’re the one waiting for a trade, include it in your calendar.

Another one of my favorite movies came to an end recently, with the final issues being crowded switched to paperback deals after multiple Covid delays. I can do full “Dorothy say goodbye to Oz” routine with all the things I like about this series: Action, comedy, satire, “acting”, black work, the cast is mostly gay women, the story isn’t really in any way about weirdness – but it does end with me saying “But you,” every time Vita takes off his coat and gives us the show. acting gun “… I will miss you most of of all.”

Batman: Knight #2

Batman: Knight is a great modern take on Bruce Wayne’s boyhood, a wide-open space with plenty of room for adventure and secrets. But I want to scream this console, with the figure of the master thief on the run dashing straight into the building, where the reader can see it but not Bruce. Not too subtle, not too obvious – just great stuff.

Suicide Squad: Blaze #1

New members get even more use of Suicide Squad watching as another lifts a cup with his invisible arm.

Writer Si Spurrier is very good at what he does, so it’s no surprise that he and artist Aaron Campbell have found a way to make the Suicide Squad more refreshing than the team already made. for a long time: Focused on some brand new forage inmates with superpowers, not the usual nerds like Harley or King Shark. Also the villain – an idea I won’t spoil – is also a great twist. Batman’s utility belt includes lollipops and lots of other mysteries
