The return of the Savage Sword of Conan

Review: The return of the Savage Sword of Conan Comicsbeat

Conan’s characterization in general is in line with the rest of the other Conan stories. He is multifaceted in his skills and wit. The 48-pages gives Acrudi plenty of space to showcase these aspects and keep the plot moving to a satisfying conclusion with twists and turns throughout. It is a satisfying one-shot Conan story that was delightful."

The animated film Batman Azteca: Choque de ImperiosYahoo - Superhero Hype

Artist Jose Iturriaga posted an image preview for the upcoming DC animated feature-length movie which is during the Aztec Empire.

In the time of the Aztec Empire, Yohualli Coatl – a young Aztec boy – experiences tragedy when his father and village leader, Toltecatzin, is murdered by Spanish Conquistadors," the synopsis reads. "Yohualli escapes to Tenochtitlan to warn King Moctezuma and his high priest, Yoka, of imminent danger. Using the temple of Tzinacan, the bat god, as a lair, Yohualli trains with his mentor and assistant, Acatzin, developing equipment and weaponry to confront the Spaniard invasion, protect Moctezuma’s temple, and avenge his father’s death."

This storyline would seem to have a built-in problem, which is that Cortez and the Conquistadores destroyed the Aztec empire in 1521 by way of an alliance with other tribes hostile to the Aztecs, so this version of Batman is up against a historical reality that would seem to mean, in the end, Batman fails. This storyline also raises the question of whether it will have Batman participating in human sacrifices to the Aztec gods?

Of course all of that can be skirted by changing historical facts, or maybe subsetting the story into a simpler tale of this Batman taking on just certain criminal Conquistadores who murder the character's father.
