13 THINGS That Have to Happen in BATMAN ’66 MEETS WONDER WOMAN ’77

Everyone needs a little unsolicited, free advice.


UPDATED 11/23/16: For a review of the first digital chapter, click here! — Dan

OK, so it’s been a fun week of Batman ’66 news, what with the new movie premiering (click here for a SPOILER-FREE review), the announcement of a sequel starring William Shatner as Two-Face (click here) and Diamond Select’s reveal of the Batphone (click here).

But now comes the news that the next Batman ’66 comics title will be a crossover with Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman ’77, written by Jeff Parker and Marc Andreyko, with art by David Hahn and Karl Kesel, and covers by our old buddy Mike Allred and an Issue #1 variant by Alex Ross.

I’d call that Wonder-ful news.

Here’s the official description: “What mysteries are hidden in the book Ra’s al Ghul just hired Catwoman to steal? And why does this caper lead Batman down memory lane—to his childhood fight against actual Nazis?! Witness his first encounter with one of the greatest heroes the world has ever known: Wonder Woman!

The digital-first series will debut online 11/23, and start in print in January.

But we’re not going to let this just happen without throwing some of our own ideas out there, so here are 13 THINGS THAT HAVE TO HAPPEN IN BATMAN ’66 MEETS WONDER WOMAN ’77:

Mike Allred. Look, the Batcopter!

1. Ra’s al Ghul has to be drawn like Christopher Lee. I have been saying forever that Ra’s is the greatest role he never got to play. (Click here for more on that bit of awesome fun.)


2. Talia has to be drawn like Caroline Munro. I have been saying forever the British horror legend would have been the perfect Talia. (Click here for more on that bit of awesome fun.)


3. These two need to team up … and talk about forming a group of heroes of their own…


4. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know that likeness rights are an issue, but so what? Napoleon Solo was hardly a dead ringer for Robert Vaughn in Batman ’66 Meets the Man from UNCLE, but they still made it work, y’know?

5. If this doesn’t happen, they’re doing it wrong:


6. On the other hand, this does not need to happen:

7. I wouldn’t mind a scene like this:


Bob Brown pencils. Possibly Mike Esposito inks.

8. But they could skip this part:


Written by Bob Haney (of course). Art by Brown and Esposito.

9. They also need these two to throw down:

10. I would love to see Lynda Carter wearing this:

Mike Sekowsky pencils. Dick Giordano inks.

12. Wouldn’t it be great if they met these guys?
