This story comes right out of my childhood when
Mego made all sorts of Superhero figures be they from Marvel or
DC. A time when Batman and Robin would team up with Spiderman to
battle the Joker. Ah happy times. You see this isn't about
fitting into nay comic continuity or establishing boundaries
between publishing houses. This is good old fashioned comic fun
where the world is full of superheroes.
This took a long time to get off the ground.
There are several Superhero storylines that I've written that
just haven't made it to figure form. This one got closer than
many and was even partially shot. Back in date needed
armed with boxes covered in cityscape images, I started to do
the rooftop scenes. But inspiration and enthusiasm ran out. And
the images weren't that stunning or inspiring to be honest.

Jump forward a year or so and with my nephew asking every time I
see him why I don't do more superhero stories I decided it was
time to bite the bullet and get the story finished before my
nephew grew up too much to be interested.
The reshoot was all done against green screen (or actually
orange and yellow paper). Instead of gritty realism, this
version would be stylised with photoshopped backgrounds to give
it a real comic feel. The forty or so images needed were all
taken in a matter of hours.
This is a loose continuation of the Hunter/Prey
Batgirl story which ends revealing that an alien egg is beneath
the waters of Gotham. Clearly some villain has found it and is
offering it to the one that can kill Batman. Among the papers
and photos the Green Goblin looks through I was going to put a
photo of the Joker.
