Mask of the Phantasm Villain Heads to the Pages of DC Comics
A major character in Batman's story will finally become part of the DC Comics canon, just as The Phantasm is heading towards the pages of the new series Batman / Catwoman next year. This revelation comes from the writer Tom King, who has published a series of 12 issues that will help him close his series of titles of DC's main title Batman, which he withdrew in late 2019. King recently revealed a cover for the new book, which reveals the wickedness of Batman: The mask of fantasy .
Tom King has been working for some time on Batman's main series. However, it was recently announced that his race, which was originally scheduled to go for 100 numbers, was being cut short. But it was so that he could move on to this series Batman / Catwoman which became much more interesting. King shared on Twitter a new cover of the book, which contains a previously published image of the two main characters reflected in the blade of none other than The Phantasm. King provided the following very simple legend:
For the hardcore of Batman, it is a very big problem. The fantasy, aka Andrea Beaumont, was introduced in 1993 Batman: The mask of fantasy which takes place in Batman: the animated series continues and, animated or not, is generally considered as one of the greatest movies ever made on the Caped Crusader. Beaumont was created especially for the film and has turned out to be a former Bruce Wayne lover. The two men eventually parted when his quest to become the Gotham hero on the theme of bats took flight. Years later, she reappeared as the vengeful villain known as Phantasm.
Despite the character's rich nature and the fact that it was featured in a beloved film from the Batman story, The Phantasm has never really made its way to the main canon of DC Comics. That's why it's so huge. Previously, she appeared in Batman Beyond 2.0 digital comics, with a version of the character called "The Reaper" appearing in DC's Bombshells, which takes place in another universe. But that's all. Harley Quinn, another famous female character from DC, also debuted in Batman: The Animated Series. Harley Quinn passed fairly quickly and has since become one of the most popular characters in the DC lineup
Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey will provide artwork to Tom King's Batman / Catwoman . book. If this cover is an indication, we are entitled to a visual treat. Elsewhere, it was also recently revealed that King co-wrote the film New Gods with Ava DuVernay. He claims to be one of DC's real golden boys. Let's hope The Phantasm is well received in the world of DC Comics after all these years. Be sure to check Tom King's Twitter account cover below.
