Killer Moth's The Moth Cave


Clipped from Sebastien Alexandre Andrivet: Under Killer Moth's mansion was dug a secret underground lair much like the Batcave. In his “Mothcave”, he developed the gaudy masked identity of the Killer Moth, and top-notch equipment imitating that found in the Batcave. The crown jewel of his hoard was the Mothmobile, an impressive roadster matching his costume. The Killer Moth made himself known as a mercenary to the underworld ; just like the police would summon Batman with the Bat-Signal, he gave his clients special infra-red flashlights that could project the Moth-Signal on passing clouds. Equipped with special lenses in his strange helmet, Killer Moth would see the signal and swoop in to solve the problem facing his clients.

Rob's Room: Star Trek: Axanar

Wow... lotta Star Trek posts this last week... but this premiered at Comic Con over the weekend.  Solid cast. Michael Hogan as Captain Robert April? Richard Hatch as a Klingon Warrior? Garth of Izar?  Can't wait to see this!  
The Story of Star Trek: Axanar  (funded by Kickstarter):
“Axanar” takes place 21 years before the events of “Where no Man Has Gone Before”, the first Kirk episode of the original Star Trek. Axanar is the story of Garth of Izar, the legendary Starfleet captain who is Captain Kirk’s hero. Kirk himself called Garth the model for all future Starfleet Officer’s. Garth charted more planets than any other Captain and was the hero of the Battle of Axanar, the story of which is required reading at the academy. This is that story.
“Axanar” tells the story of Garth and his crew during the Four Years War, the war with the Klingon Empire that almost tore the Federation apart. Garth’s victory at Axanar solidified the Federation and allowed it to become the entity we know in Kirk’s time.
It is the year 2245, four years into the war with the Klingons.
