SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Gotham City Under Siege is a board game heavily inspired by Batman: The Animated Series. In it, players will take control of a popular hero from the show and have to make their way across Gotham City, stopping crimes, and saving the day.

As opposed to a board, the game features a set of buildings, and characters must move from rooftop to rooftop. The objective of the game is to complete story missions or stop crimes all based on the first season of the show it is based on. This makes Gotham City Under Siege the ultimate board game for fans of the show or DC in general.

2 THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON BEST BUY

While DC movie adaptations of popular comics have left a lot to be desired (see The Killing Joke to know what we mean), The Death of Superman not only succeeds as an adaptation but as an animated film in general. It throws in the Justice League for good measure, but they're all in service of the story at hand.

It all feels intense and impactful, leading to a final confrontation that is extremely well-executed. It's a powerful DC movie that puts many of its live-action films to shame. It also sets up a further story that will have viewers chomping on the bit for more.

1 THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS FUNKO POP!

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

If you thought the Joker was Batman's greatest foe, think again. The Batman Who Laughs is Bruce Wayne from another reality where Joker effectively drove him insane. He laid waste to all his friends and became a torturous monster with all the unpredictability of Joker and the skills of Batman.

This newer foe of the Dark Knight's will leave a powerful legacy on DC's history with a frightening design and a lasting impact. With the Batman Who Laughs Funko Pop! figure, DC fans can now display this evil foe on their desks. It's well-detailed and looks great against other Funko Pop! figures.
