Ep 147 - Batman, vol 5 - Rules of Engagement

This Week: When Catwoman accepted Batman's marriage proposal, she changed more lives than just Bruce Wayne's and Selina Kyle's. A union between the World's Greatest Detective and one of Gotham City's fiercest criminals is a shake-up that will rattle everyone in the Dark Knight's life--from the young vigilantes who make up his surrogate "family," to his legendary friends in the Justice League, to old demons he'd long hoped to leave behind.

Now Batman and Catwoman are on a quest for redemption--a mission deep into a forbidden desert fortress to evolve into something better before they say, "I do." Standing in their way is...well, everybody, including Batman's lethal ex-girlfriend Talia al Ghul.

From desert sands to boardwalk lights, will the Bat and the Cat's search lead them to happiness at last?

Find out in Batman Vol. 5: Rules of Engagement, a major new chapter in the lives of the Dark Knight and his feline fiancée from the acclaimed creative team of Tom King (Mister Miracle) and Joëlle Jones (Supergirl: Being Super), with guest artists Clay Mann and Lee Weeks!

Between the Sheets

The origin of the cocktail is usually credited to Harry MacElhone at Harry's New York Bar in Paris in the 1930s as a derivative of the sidecar. However, competing theories exist that claim the cocktail was created at The Berkeley in approximately 1921, or in French brothels as an apéritif for consumption by the prostitutes.

The Midnighter

Between the supercomputer wired into his brain and the enhancements saturating his body, the living weapon known as Midnighter doesn’t face a lot of real challenges to his uncanny combat skills.

Next week we finish our pride month with the gay super group - The Pride. Follow the adventures of FabMan, Wolf, Muscle Mary, Frost and the rest of the team as they face off against threats like the Reverend, Poker Face, Basher and more!

Ingredients:  

  • 25ml. Vanilla Vodka (or normal vodka if you can’t find it)
  • 25ml. Irish Cream 
  • 25ml. Milk (or Cream)  
  • A lowball glass.

Preparation:  Pour the vanilla vodka over ice in the lowball glass, followed by the Irish Cream.  Then stir the cream or milk into the glass, with a good vigorous whisk of the hand. Serve.

The Gay Russian is a slightly sweet cocktail based on the original Black Russian formula, a recipe which has infinite modern variations – including this one.  The Black Russian first appeared in 1949, in the Hotel Metropole in Brussels. 

Keeping things Belgian, the Gay Russian has been launched to honour the possibility that Elio de Rupo could be the first openly gay man to become a head of government (Iceland has had a lesbian prime minister) if elected.

It’s fortunate that in Belgium, a politician’s sexuality isn’t of the same interest it would be in the UK, with few Belgians appearing fussed by the notion that a gay man is the most likely contender to become the leader of their country. Despite the country's rather staid and conservative image abroad, Belgium is sexually more tolerant than most of the rest of the world and became the second country to legalise gay marriages – so we should drink to that straight away.
