Well, you all know my fondness for faux rock bands that appear in comic book stories.
So imagine my glee when I stumble upon this story, set in Batman's "Year One":
But we still have a performance by World Public Enemy to look forward to, right?
Surprisingly enough, despite the close-ups and costumes, these women did NOT turn out to be villains or henchpersons. They didn't appear any more at all in the issue, not even a single panel.
But actually, these guys have a history. Pre-Crisis, they were three small-time criminals that some Andy Warhol-type artist tried to turn into pop-art phenomena, well, because:
That was their last appearance for 30 years, until that post-Crisis transmogrification into a rock band, in Shadow Of The Bat Annual #3 (1995). And yes, that was also the canonical first post-Crisis visit of Poison Ivy to Gotham. She never encountered World Public Enemy this time, though.
And then they vanished until Grant Morrison revived them in 2007 as members of Ra's al Ghul's League Of Assassins during the Resurrection of RaG story. Seriously. And Batman kicked their ass.
All in all, I guess they should have kept the jobs as rockers...at least then they weren't getting their asses kicked (except, perhaps, by the critics).
