While cruising their site for new Batman info I saw this at SHH and figured there would be more than just a few of us interested in watching this. Bravo did a decent job with their 100 Scariest Movie Moments special and this seems to be quite similar.


It's a bird, it's a plane, its Bravo's three-part special "Super Heroes, Villains and Vixens." The series premiers Thursday, May 26 (10-11 p.m. EST) and will air the same bat time, same bat channel for the next three consecutive nights.

Narrated by one of televisions' classic super heroes, Adam West, who portrayed Batman in the hit TV series, Bravo's upcoming special celebrates the heroes, villains and vixens who have created powerful impressions on fans throughout the years. More than 50 experts, ranging from comic book creators to filmmakers and producers to the actors who brought these characters to life, were consulted for the formation of the super-powered top 20 countdown lists in each category.

The super heroes, super villians and super vixens were chosen from characters who have appeared in comic books, movies, televison, and/or video games. All choices were based on the characters' longevity, their iconic pop-culture status, and their overall "cool factor." Comic buffs won't want to miss out on the celebrities dishing on the ins and outs of their favirite characters, including Lou Ferrigno discussing the Hulk's relatable human side and Mark Hamill talking about his total commitment to creating the fantasy that surrounded "Star Wars."

With a combination of cutting edge graphics, film clips, celebrity and expert interviews, Bravo's "Ultimate Super Heroes" specials look at the popularity and longevity of each list topper. Exclusive interviews include actress Vivica A. Fox ("Batman & Robin," "Kill Bill Vol. 1"), comic book writer Stan Lee ("X-Men," "Spider-Man," "Fantastic Four"), actor Hal Sparks ("Spider-Man 2"), director Bryan Synger ("X-Men," "X-Men 2"), actor Bill Mumy ("Twilight Zone," "Babylon5"), comic book writer Todd McFarlane ("Spawn"), actor Mark Hamill ("Star Wars"), actor Lou Ferrigno ("The Incredible Hulk") and Chairman/CEO of Marvel Studios Avi Arad ("X-Men," "Daredevil," "Elektra")

Okay, first, how does anyone top Vader as the nastiest supervillain?

Second, Syndrome isn't all that wonderful. He's cool, but not iconic. Most of Batman's Rogues Gallery could whip him. I'd rather see Bane or Penguin (individually, not combined with that loser Eddie Nigma) or Killer Croc or Anarky in his place.

Third, how can you not list Jubilee, Aayla Secura, and Barriss Offee among the "Vixens"? C'mon, we're talking serious butt-kickers and some major sex appeal here! Well, maybe not with Jubilee, since she's too young for that. . . . :) But Xena? Breathless Mahoney? Mystique? WTF?!?!?
