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.
Daredevil (Toybiz Superhero Showdown)
Batman (Takara)
Green Goblin (Toybiz Superhero Showdown)
Commisioner Gordon (Mattel DC Infinite Heroes)
Gotham SWAT team (Mattel DC Infinite Heroes)
Spy Kids guy, girl, Lt Uhura (Star Trek 2010), The Corps Builders (Lanyard)
 

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.

The edit took about a week to complete, with each frame needing special attention.

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.
