DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio announced during a panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego that the hit digital-first DC comic series Batman '66, which is based on the 1960's Batman TV show, will cross over with John Steed and Emma Peel, two characters from The Avengers, a British spy-fi TV series from the same era.
Steed and Peel have been featured in comics before, including a Grant Morrison/Ian Gibson version from 1990. The two characters take on criminals, solve mysteries and pursue conspiracies and supernatural occurrences.
Launched in July 2013, Batman '66 has been taking the heroes and villains featured in the campy 1960's Batman show and expanding their world. Readers have finally been able to read new adventures featuring pop culture treasures like Robin's exclamations of "Holy Batman!," the Dynamic Duo hopping into the Batmobile with fins, characters dancing the "Batusi," and the live action versions of sexy Catwoman, creepy Joker and laughing Penguin.
No word yet on the creators involved with the Batman '66 crossover with Steed and Peel, or a release date.
