Desert Mirage (Live-Action/Animation Hybrid)
If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen me posting about Desert Mirage for awhile now.

Today, many were even noting of how the character of Batman (traditionally) never uses guns and some were citing a quote Batman makes in Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" (even though Batman happens to use guns on a few occasions in that exact comic)
