Terry Justice – Head Coach / Assistant Director of Athletics – 4th Street Athletic Facility – Staff Directory
Terry Justice, a Lacrosse institution in the state of Kentucky, enters his 10th year as head coach of the Transylvania men’s lacrosse program in 2021.
The first and only head coach in the history of Transylvania men’s lacrosse, Justice has Pioneered his Transylvania men’s lacrosse program into an annual national contender and one of the premier Division III programs west of the Allegheny Mountains.
In the last three full NCAA lacrosse seasons, Justice has directed the Pioneers to the NCAA Tournament in all three of them, continuing Transylvania’s steady ascent.
Named Transylvania’s first men’s lacrosse coach in June 2011, Justice has quickly built the program into a forced to be reckoned with amidst the Division III men’s lacrosse landscape.
In nine years as the beacon of Transylvania men’s lacrosse, Justice has created a team that has never experienced a losing season. The Pioneers reign as the five-time defending conference tournament champions of the Ohio River Lacrosse Conference and Heartland Collegiate Lacrosse Conference.
The only head coach in the history of Transylvania’s lacrosse program, Justice brings the Pioneers men’s lacrosse program into 2021 fresh off an abbreviated 4-2 winning season, preceded by three straight trips to the NCAA Tournament and a legacy as the premier program in the Heartland Collegiate Lacrosse Conference.
Justice’s most recent full season with the Pioneers in 2019 was a masterpiece for the program as the Pioneers reset the program record for wins in a season with 14, producing an overall win-loss total of 14-5. Transylvania ran the table through the HCLC for the second time in three years, furnishing an 8-0 record against conference opponents on the way to capturing the HCLC Tournament crown.
The Pioneers swept HCLC postseason accolades with junior TJ Toivonen earning conference Defensive Player of the Year honors for the second straight year. Junior attackman Trenton Sneed starred opposite the midfielder with HCLC Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2019. Justice finished off the sweep with his second career HCLC Coach of the Year award. Sneed and Toivonen headlined a list of eight Pioneers who captured All-HCAC First Team recognition.
Within conference play, the Pioneers limited opponents to just 3.22 goals per game while Toivonen led the conference with 42 caused turnovers, solidifying Transylvania’s defensive reputation. Justice shifted Transylvania’s offense into high gear in 2019 as the Pioneers finished the season fifth in the nation in scoring margin, outscoring opponents by an average of over 10 goals per match. Twice in the season the Pioneers touched the 30-goal mark in a single match, doing so twice in conference matchups against Mount St. Joseph with a pair of 30-1 victories.
During the 2019 season, the Pioneers rewrote records for goals in a game, margin of victory, ground balls, points, and team assists. Transylvania averaged 17.1 goals per contest in 19 games. At season’s end, the Pioneers ranked in the top 10 in the country in scoring offense (9th), defense (6th), face-off percentage (9th), ground balls per game (5th), and scoring margin (3rd). The Pioneers also ranked 13th in the country in assists while sophomore goalie Michael Webb ranked 11th in the nation in goals-against average, yielding fewer than eight goals per match.
2018 featured another display of championship excellence. Bringing together a young and talented squad, Justice’s Pioneers reeled off a 9-1 record in ORLC conference play to finish the regular season as conference co-Champions, achieving their fourth straight regular-season conference championship in the process. Transylvania rode that momentum to their fourth consecutive ORLC Tournament championship with a resounding 12-2 victory at St. Vincent to clinch its second NCAA Tournament appearance in program history.
Along with furnishing team success, a cavalcade of student-athletes earned 2018 postseason honors under Justice’s direction, led by Toivonen, the ORLC Defensive Player of the Year. Toivonen, Sneed, and junior Webb VanMeter each earned All-ORLC First Team recognition, while Nic Bailey, Ben Kraft, and Paul Stickel each earned a spot on the All-ORLC Second Team. Another six players from the 2018 squad were named All-ORLC Honorable Mention. The influx of postseason recognition was punctuated with Toivonen becoming the first Pioneer in program history to be named IMLCA All-Region as an Honorable Mention Defense selection.
The 2017 season marked the third straight season in which the Pioneers captured the ORLC regular season and tournament title as the Pioneers defeated St. Vincent 12-1 in the conference championship. The critical victory earned the Pioneers the conference’s first-ever NCAA Tournament berth, vaulting Transylvania into the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. Transylvania’s first trip to the NCAA Tournament ended in the second round against Hampden-Sydney to conclude a 13-4 run, the most wins in one season by a Pioneer men’s lacrosse squad. Along with the historic moment embedded in the conference tournament championship, the victory also served as a milestone for Justice, who collected his 50th career head coaching win in the process.
Justice’s teams have consistently carved out an identity as one of defensive excellence combined with clearing precision. In 2017, senior goalie Cooper Fogle led the nation in goals-against average, holding opponents to 6.32 goals per game. The Pioneers also led the nation in clearing percentage in 2017.
That string cemented a pattern of three consecutive seasons in which the Pioneers have finished in the top-five nationally in scoring defense and clearing efficiency. During that run of defensive excellence, multiple players under Justice have ranked in the top-20 nationally in face-off percentage.
With that team success has also come a cornucopia of individual recognition. In 2017, Fogle received his second consecutive ORLC Defensive Most Valuable Player award while senior attacker Clark Watts was named the ORLC co-Offensive Most Valuable Player, leading a list of six All-ORLC First teamers. In total, 11 Pioneers received all-conference postseason recognition.
In 2016, the Pioneers put together a 10-6 run and 6-1 record in ORLC regular season play en route to their second consecutive conference regular season and tournament titles. Nine Pioneers earned All-ORLC awards to cap off another conference championship season.
The year before, the Pioneers went 11-6 and 5-1 in the ORLC, winning the ORLC Tournament Championship at home over St. Vincent. Following the 2015 season, Justice was named the Ohio River Lacrosse Conference Coach of the Year and saw 11 players garner postseason awards. The Pioneers completed 2015 as both ORLC conference tournament and regular season champions.
Justice and the sport of Lacrosse in Kentucky have experienced an intertwined relationship since he arrived to the Bluegrass in the late 1970s. Discovering a passion and love for the sport in his high school years, Justice continued his pursuit of the game at the University of Kentucky where he helped form the first men’s lacrosse club team at Kentucky and played from 1979-1983.
At the turn of the century, Justice’s impact on the lacrosse scene in Lexington spread like wildfire as he was instrumental towards the sport’s local growth. By 1999, no formal high school lacrosse scene existed. But after Justice coached a middle school lacrosse team that year, he was asked by parents of those players to spearhead a high school program, and started a high school club team in 2000.
As lacrosse programs at different high schools and middle schools quickly sprouted in large part to Justice’s efforts, he was summoned by Lexington Catholic High School to orchestrate their high school club team.
In 2003, Justice was made the full-time head coach of the Lexington Catholic Lacrosse program. Justice went on to coach at Lexington Catholic from 2004 through 2011, winning the Kentucky State High School Coach of the Year award in 2004 and 2005. At Lexington Catholic, Justice compiled a 73-33 record and led the Knights to state runner-up showings in 2006 and 2008.
In 2011, Justice got the call from Transy to be the head coach for their inaugural men’s lacrosse program and he enthusiastically accepted, taking on his first collegiate head coach gig.
Since his arrival to Transy in 2011, the program has bloomed into one of the premier programs in Division III. The Pioneers have carved out a reputation for fastidious defense, precision clearing, and a physicality rooted in chemistry and blue-collar work ethic. The Pioneers have averaged 10 wins a season and their success stems from key beliefs by their head coach.
“I’m very invested in Kentucky lacrosse and these kids who play the game,” says Justice. “What intrigues me on a day-to-day basis is teaching the fundamentals of the game, and figuring out ways to teach our kids fundamentals every day. Fundamentals are the components to execution; that’s how you win or lose.”
In recognition of his contributions to the game in Kentucky, Justice was part of an inaugural five-person class inducted into the Kentucky Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2015.
While his accolades are plentiful and his presence in Kentucky lacrosse is indelible, Justice’s motivations still return to the core elements of teaching, coaching, his players, and the school he represents.
“This University is important to me and our culture,” espouses Justice. “My measure is not necessarily going to be only wins and losses, though that does come into the equation, but more importantly what kind of young men these student-athletes are going to become. Did they graduate from this University? Are they successful when they get out of this University? That’s how I’m going to be truly measured, so working with these young men is what keeps me going, and that’s the fun part, to fight through some hard times together and learn life lessons. “
In addition to his duties as head coach of Transylvania men’s lacrosse, Justice also serves as the Assistant Athletic Director at Transylvania for Outdoor Facilities.
Terry v. Ohio | Definition, Background, & Significance
Terry v. Ohio, U.S. Supreme Court decision, issued on June 10, 1968, which held that police encounters known as stop-and-frisks, in which members of the public are stopped for questioning and patted down for weapons and drugs without probable cause (a reasonable belief that a crime has been or is about to be committed), do not necessarily violate the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition of unreasonable searches and seizures. The Fourth Amendment states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
The case arose following the actions of Martin McFadden, a Cleveland police detective, in conducting a search to prevent a possible armed robbery. On the afternoon of October 31, 1963, McFadden conducted a pat-down search on three men who, he believed, were preparing to rob a store. Two of the men, John Terry and Richard Chilton, were found to be carrying pistols. They were tried and convicted of carrying concealed weapons. They appealed, arguing that evidence used to convict them had been discovered during an illegal search, but the conviction was affirmed by the Ohio Supreme Court.
Terry’s case was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1967. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote the majority opinion, ruling that McFadden had the authority to conduct for officer safety a limited pat-down for weapons because the suspects were observed engaging in suspicious behaviour that warranted inquiry by the police. The Court held that stopping someone for brief questioning and conducting a pat-down search did constitute a search as defined by the Fourth Amendment but that such searches were not always unconstitutional.
The ruling stopped short of creating a separate category of police actions that did not have to meet the constitutional standard of probable cause. The Court’s analysis of whether McFadden violated Terry’s constitutional protections against unreasonable searches and seizures focused on whether the officer’s actions were reasonable at the inception of the search and whether McFadden’s actions were reasonably consistent in scope with the circumstances that provided the justification for the initial search. The purpose of the stop-and-frisk was viewed as detecting concealed weapons on the person (which might constitute an immediate danger to the officer or others) rather than collecting evidence of a crime. The Court rejected the contention that a pat-down is a “petty indignity” for the individual subjected to the search. The Court also noted the potential detrimental impact that the practice of stop-and-frisks may have on police-community relations but held nevertheless that when an officer suspects that a person may be armed, it is reasonable to search for weapons because of the danger to the officer or to others.

The lone dissenter was Justice William O. Douglas, who argued that the Court had provided the police with more legal authority to conduct a search and seizure than a judge has to issue a court order authorizing a search and seizure. Douglas argued that police searches should remain constrained by the standard threshold of probable cause.

530 N.E.2d 295 (1988)
Terry D. JUSTICE, Appellant (Defendant below),
STATE of Indiana, Appellee (Plaintiff below).
Supreme Court of Indiana.
November 23, 1988.
*296 Michael J. McDaniel, New Albany, for appellant.
Linley E. Pearson, Atty. Gen., Lisa Paunicka, Deputy Atty. Gen., Indianapolis, for appellee.
SHEPARD, Chief Justice.
A jury found appellant Terry Justice guilty of burglary, a class B felony, Ind. Code § 35-43-2-1 (Burns 1985 Repl.) The trial court sentenced him to twenty years in prison.
Justice raises three issues on direct appeal, but we need consider only one: whether the evidence is sufficient to establish intent to commit theft. It is not.
On May 11, 1985, at approximately 2:45 a.m., a crashing noise awakened Tammy Bryant. She heard someone trying to enter her house. Bryant turned on a lamp and telephoned her parents. While her father drove to her house, she continued to speak to her mother on the telephone. Bryant heard someone come down the hallway and then saw a man standing in the hallway outside her room. He walked into her room and toward her bed. She noticed that he had black socks on his hands. Bryant recognized him as a former friend of her brother and said: “Terry Justice, what are you doing here? I’m Anthony’s little sister.” Upon hearing this, the man turned around and immediately left the house. When the police arrived, they discovered that a screen had been removed from a dining room window and left on the ground outside. The back door had also been left open. The State charged Terry Justice with breaking and entering with intent to commit theft.
Justice argues that the evidence is insufficient to establish intent to commit theft. In reviewing a sufficiency claim, this Court looks only at the evidence most favorable to the verdict and any reasonable inferences which may be drawn from that evidence. If a reasonable finder of fact could determine from the evidence that the defendant was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, then we will uphold the verdict. Loyd v. State (1980), 272 Ind. 404, 398 N.E.2d 1260, cert. denied, 449 U.S. 881, 101 S. Ct. 231, 66 L. Ed. 2d 105.
Proof of an illegal entry only establishes criminal trespass. Ind. Code § 35-43-2-2(a)(5). Burglary requires proof of intent to commit a felony inside the structure. Ind. Code § 35-43-2-1. To establish intent to commit a felony the State must specify what felony the defendant intended to commit. Where the State cannot establish intent to commit a particular underlying felony, criminal trespass is the appropriate charge.
*297 Intent to commit a given felony may be inferred from the circumstances, but some fact in evidence must point to an intent to commit a specific felony. Gilliam v. State (1987), Ind., 508 N.E.2d 1270. The State argues the intent to commit theft can be inferred from the evidence that Justice entered the premises illegally, fled when the victim recognized him and covered his hands. We do not agree.
Intent to commit a felony may not be inferred from proof of breaking and entering alone. Timmons v. State (1986), Ind., 500 N.E.2d 1212. Similarly, evidence of flight alone may not be used to infer intent, though other factors, such as the removal of property from the premises, may combine with flight to prove the requisite intent for burglary. Sargent v. State (1973), 156 Ind. App. 469, 297 N.E.2d 459.
Evidence of breaking and entering, and evidence of flight are not probative unless tied to some other evidence which is strongly corroborative of the actor’s intent. The evidence does not need to be insurmountable, but it must provide “a solid basis to support a reasonable inference” that the defendant intended to commit the underlying felony. Gilliam, 508 N.E.2d at 1271. While there is evidence of breaking and entering, and evidence of flight in this case, there is no evidence that Justice touched, disturbed or even approached any valuable property.
The State asks us to infer that the reason Justice had socks on his hands was because he intended to commit theft. The Indiana Court of Appeals has held that a jury can reasonably infer that “covering one’s hands with socks in May was for the purpose of avoiding detection in the commission of a felony … . after he had gained entrance into the structure.” Long v. State (1975), 166 Ind. App. 282, 286, 335 N.E.2d 631, 633.
While precautions designed to avoid leaving fingerprints point to illegal intent, they do not by themselves establish intent to commit a particular felony. In examining the extent to which a defendant’s covered hands can be used as evidence of specific intent, Justice Dickson wrote: “The use of stockings upon defendant’s hands also supports the reasonable inference that he intended to avoid leaving fingerprints and therefore intended to commit some criminal offense, but it is impossible to infer therefrom which offense defendant intended once inside.” Slaton v. State (1987), Ind., 510 N.E.2d 1343, 1350 (emphasis in original). In Slaton, we found adequate evidence of the defendant’s intent to commit theft where the defendant had entered and rummaged through the victim’s car a few days earlier. Unlike Slaton, Justice did not display conduct indicating his purpose for entering the house.
Like evidence of breaking and entering, and evidence of flight, evidence of covered hands does not provide an inference that Justice intended to commit theft rather than some other felony in Tammy Bryant’s home. Someone who intends to commit criminal trespass or any other misdemeanor might wish to obscure his identity by covering his hands. Without any inference suggesting intent to commit theft, the evidence is insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intended to commit theft.
The burglary conviction is reversed and the defendant ordered discharged.
DeBRULER, GIVAN and DICKSON, JJ., concur.
PIVARNIK, J., dissents without opinion.
 Ind. Code § 35-43-2-2(a)(5) states: “Criminal Trespass. A person who: Not having a contractual interest in the property, knowingly or intentionally enters the dwelling of another person without his consent: commits criminal trespass, a class A misdemeanor. “
 Ind. Code § 35-43-2-1 reads: “Burglary. A person who breaks and enters the building or structure of another person, with intent to commit a felony in it, commits burglary, a class C felony. However, the offense is a class B felony … if the building or structure is a dwelling… .”
In re Neagle – The Seeds Of Vengeance – Terry, Justice, Court, and Field
Sharon’s heir still wanted the new Mrs. Terry to return her marriage contract. In 1888 he brought suit to that effect, also in federal court in California. Two local federal judges sat on this court, along with Supreme Court Justice Stephen J. Field. As was the custom in those days, Supreme Court justices also served part of the year as federal court judges.
Field had formerly been an associate justice on the California Supreme Court under Chief Justice Terry. When Terry had left the post of chief justice, Field had succeeded to it. Yet Terry was now to become Field’s bitter enemy.
When the three-judge panel, headed by Field, called Mrs. Terry and her husband as a party to the suit, both she and her husband denied that Sharon’s heir had any rights. Soon afterward, on 14 August 1888, one of the other judges on the panel found himself on a train leaving Fresno, California, the home of the Terrys. The Terrys “grossly insulted” the judge, according to the account of the case written up by Justice Miller in the Supreme Court decision. Reportedly, Mrs. Terry actually pulled the judge’s hair, while Mr. Terry said, “The best thing to do with him would be to take him out into the bay and drown him.”
On 3 September 1888, the three-judge panel ruled against Mrs. Terry once again. She shouted at the judge, causing Justice Field to ask the marshall to remove her from the courtroom.
[Mr. Terry] . . . struck the marshall a blow in his face so violent as to knock out a tooth. He then unbuttoned his coat, thrust his hand under his vest, apparently for the purpose of drawing a bowie-knife, when he was seized by persons present and forced down on his back.
Mr. Terry did eventually draw a bowie knife, so that others had to wrestle it away from him. “The most prominent person engaged in wresting the knife from Terry,” wrote Justice Miller, “was Neagle . . . ” Meanwhile, Mrs. Terry was trying to open a small satchel that she had with her. When the satchel was taken from her, it was found to contain a revolver.

Tom Waits 71 years
Tom Waits (full name Thomas Alan Waits) is an American singer and songwriter, composer, actor.In his early work, Waits mixed genres such as jazz, blues and, to a small extent, folk, but from the 1980s to the present day he has been playing experimental rock to one degree or another, with elements of industrial, dark cabaret and avant-garde jazz. It is characterized by theatrical, sometimes vaudeville performances, and a special manner of performance – a mixture of singing and recitative. Tom has a peculiar hoarse voice, described by critic Daniel Duchholz as: “It is as if it is soaked in a barrel of bourbon, it is as if it was left in a smokehouse for several months, and then when they got it, they drove over it.”Lyrically, his songs are stories, most often told in the first person, with grotesque images of seedy places and characters battered by life. Waits was also the composer of films such as Night on Earth by Jim Jarmusch and From the Heart of Francis Ford Coppola, for which he was nominated for an Oscar. Winner of a Grammy for the Bone Machine and Mule Variations albums. In 2011 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by his colleague Neil Young. He currently lives in Sonoma County, California.

Wikipedia – the free encyclopedia
The passage of Venus across the disk of the Sun – a kind of astronomical transit (transit) – occurs when the planet Venus is exactly between the Sun and the Earth, covering a tiny part of the solar disk.In this case, the planet looks from the Earth as a small black speck moving along the Sun. Passages are similar to solar eclipses, when our star is obscured by the Moon, but although Venus is almost 4 times the diameter of the Moon, during the passage it looks about 30 times smaller than the Sun, since it is much farther from the Earth than the Moon. Such an apparent size of Venus makes it accessible for observation even with the naked eye (only with filters from bright sunlight), in the form of a point, at the limit of the eye’s resolving power.Before the era of space exploration, observations of this phenomenon allowed astronomers to calculate the distance from the Earth to the Sun by the parallax method, in addition, while observing the passage of 1761, MV Lomonosov discovered the atmosphere of Venus.
The duration of the passage is usually several hours (in 2004 it lasted 6 hours). At the same time, it is one of the rarest predictable astronomical phenomena. Every 243 years, 4 passes are repeated: two in December (with a difference of 8 years), then an interval of 121.5 years, two more in June (again with a difference of 8 years) and an interval of 105.5 years.The last December passages occurred on December 9, 1874 and December 6, 1882, and the June passages took place on June 8, 2004 and June 6, 2012. Subsequent passes will occur in 2117 and 2125, again in December. During the passage, the “Lomonosov phenomenon” is observed, as well as the “black drop effect”.
Massacre in Blagae (Serbo-Croatian. Masakr u Blagaju / Masakr u Blagaju) – the massacre of 400 to 530 Serbs by Croatian Ustasha, which took place on May 9, 1941, during the Second World War.This massacre was the second massacre after the creation of the Independent State of Croatia and was part of the Serb genocide.
The victims were Serbs from the village of Velun and its surroundings, accused of involvement in the murder of the local Croatian miller Joso Mravunac and his family. The Ustashs argued that the murder was motivated by ethnic hatred and signaled the beginning of the Serbian uprising. The detained Serbs (their number, according to various estimates, ranged from 400 to 530 people) were kept in one of the Blagaya schools, where many of them were tortured and beaten.The Ustashs planned to hold a “people’s trial”, but the surviving daughter of Mravunac could not identify the killers among the detained Serbs, and the prosecutor’s office refused to initiate a case against anyone without proving guilt. One of the high-ranking Ustasha Vekoslav Luburich, dissatisfied with this development of events, organized a new “special court”. A day later, Mravunac’s daughter pointed to one of the detained Serbs. After that, 36 people were shot. Then the Ustashi executed the rest of the detainees.

90,000 15 most powerful Batman costumes
Today I want to present to you a translation of an article by one foreign portal about the 15 most powerful Batman costumes.
One of the reasons fans love Batman is that he is an ordinary person who has transformed himself into something incredible. He has no superpower or speed, he is not even bulletproof, but he has a tactical genius, a trained body and an iron will.
Iron Man is known for his costumes and for having a special suit for every occasion, but he is not the only one who is ready for anything. Batman has created a huge amount of equipment to fight opponents, especially if they are stronger than him.Since he has no superpowers, he must use whatever he can get his hands on.
15th place. Batman Beyond Costume
Beginning as an animated series in 1999, Batman of the Future was a cyberpunk in the Batman universe, created by Bruce Timm, Paul Deaney and Al Burnet. We were presented with the distant future, 2039, an aged Bruce Wayne passed his costume to a teenager Terry McGuinness. With a mentor in the form of Bruce, Terry battled new villains like Ink, Shrik and others.
Despite the fact that the suit was created in 2019, in 2039 it was still fully operational. It had wings, stealth mode, a set of gadgets. He also acted as an exoskeleton, increasing the strength and speed of the wearer.
14th place. Bat-Bot
In an episode of the 2004 animated series, a new version of one of Batman’s most famous foes was introduced. Written by Adam Beechen and directed by Sam Liu, the episode began with Mafia bosses recruiting a mysterious mercenary known as Bane.The episode was a lite version of the 1993 “Knightfall” arc, in which Bane beat Batman and left him for dead. To defeat Bane, Batman creates the Bat-Bot armor.
The Bat-Bot is an exoskeleton that makes Bruce bigger to match Bane. It also has auxiliary motors that give it superhuman strength. It also has a jetpack that allows you to fly short distances or slow down falls from buildings. But all this did not prevent Bane from opening this suit like a tin can, fortunately Batman managed to grab the power cable and shock Bane his whole life.
13th place. Armor of Sorrow
The armor, known as the Armor of Sorrow, first appeared in Detective Comics # 838 2008, written by Paul Deaney and drawn by Ryan Benjamin. Donated by Thalia Al Ghul, daughter of the ancient villain Ras Al Ghul, the Armor of Sorrow appeared in 1190 during the Crusades. The armor drove the first knight to wear him mad, causing him to slaughter hundreds of people, but that did not deter Batman.
The Armor of Sorrow was forged from the blades and breastplates of the fallen soldiers of the Order of Purity, a division of the Order of Saint Dumas.Batman noticed that the suit makes him faster and stronger, but also more violent. He decided to stop wearing this armor, but could not bring himself to destroy it and left it in the Batcave. The armor was stolen by the Order of Saint Dumas and given to the new Azrael.
12th place. Exo-Armor from The Dark Knight Returns
In 1986, Frank Miller introduced us to the darker and tougher Batman, aged and tired, but emerging from the shadows to fight old and new threats. One of these threats is Superman, run by the corrupt US government.When it decided it was time to stop Batman, Superman was ordered to deal with him. But Bruce was ready.
Batman created an exoskeleton specifically to fight Superman, with armor enough to withstand the blows of the Man of Steel, and ecopied by engines to make Batman’s blows stronger. The suit also allowed him to send a huge discharge of electricity through Superman’s skull and spray poison to distract him. This is one of the most famous costumes, and it even appeared on the big screen in the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
11th place. Predator Costume
In 1991, Batman faced the Predator in Batman v Predator, written by Dave Gibbons and drawn by Andy Kubert. In the first book, Batman investigated the gruesome murder of a boxer who had his spine and skull ripped out. At first, Batman thought it was a gang war, but then realized that an alien Predator had appeared in Gotham. To defeat him, Batman developed an exoskeleton.
It was specially designed to fight the Predator.To compensate for the invisibility of the alien, sonar was installed, an additional physical strength, for melee fights and armor, to protect against the sharp blades of the Predator. As a result, Batman beat the Predator so much that he launched a self-destruct protocol and called Batman the greatest warrior in the universe (otherwise we did not know).
10th place. Thresher Outfit
In 2012, Batman learned about the secret organization “Yard of Owls”. Night of the Owls is a story in which the Court of Owls dispatches the Claws to deal with the Bat family and strengthen their influence.In Batman Issue 8, by Scott Snyder and art by Greg Capullo, they hit the heart of the family, Bruce Wayne. They entered the Wayne Manor and found their way to the Batcave, but Batman was ready … because he is Batman.
The main weapon of the claws is their regenerative abilities, allowing you to ignore wounds and even resurrect them. To defeat them, Batman lowered the temperature in the room below freezing, but before they were frozen, he had to hold out for several minutes. Therefore, he donned the exoskeleton of a beater, which not only allows him to survive in freezing temperatures, but also increases strength and armor, to fight the Claws without reinforcement.
9th place. Trinity Armor
Batman / Superman / Wonder Woman: Trinity, written and drawn by Matt Wagner, chronicled the first meeting of DC’s greatest heroes. It tells the story of how Ras Al Ghul, Bizarro and Artemis worked together to plunge the world into chaos, and the hero had to unite to face the triple threat. Usually Superman fought with Bizarro, but in the third issue, Batman got together with him one-on-one, and he was ready for it.
Like all of his exoskeletons, the Trinity armor made Batman stronger and faster, and also protected him from Bizarro’s blows.But this armor was not enough, and Bizarro was able to damage her chest part, so that Batman could not breathe, and Wonder Woman had to get him out of there. The armor was also equipped with gadgets such as an energized titanium net, a supply of mini grenades and lasers mounted in gloves. It wasn’t enough to defeat Bizarro, but it was enough for a distraction until Superman arrived.
8th place. Project Batman
At the conclusion of the story of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo in Batman 2014 Issue # 40, Batman is killed by the Joker.With the tragic death of Batman, Gotham loses its protector. To fill this void, Powers International is equipping Commissioner Gordon to replace Batman. To compensate for the lack of experience and skills, he is given a set of armor.
Armor, known as Project Batman, gives the usual set of strength, speed, and toughness, but also has a couple of tricks up its sleeve. For example, consistency with the Gotham police, so that he is always in touch with the police airship and interacts with the local authorities.It can throw batarangs and even emit an EMF discharge. He also has magnetic boots for incredible grip. Gordon has never been more combat-ready than in this suit.
7th place. DC’s Batsuit One Million 90 155
The 23rd issue of the Justice League of America, by Grant Morrison and a drawing by Horward Potter, introduced us to DC’s One Million Batman, which shows us the events of the distant future. Batman in this universe was born in the 853 century, on the planet Pluto prison, which was captured by the criminal Xauron, who killed thousands of residents in front of their children.One of these children was Batman, who decided to no longer allow injustice.
The One Million Batsuit has made a huge leap forward. In appearance, it does not differ much from a classic suit. It features composite armor, a fireproof cloak, and a reinforced frame. It also has night vision, stealth camouflage. The Batcomputer is built into the suit.
6th place. Batwing’s Armor
David Zavimbe was a typical child soldier until he became the African version of Batman in his solo series in 2011.He became part of the Batman Corporation. Founded to fight crime around the world.
The first version of the suit received the standard trio: strength, speed and durability, as well as a jet pack for flying. The second Batwing Lucas Fox brought some upgrades to the suit. So he received a number of medical improvements. For example, the suit could identify broken bones and harden in this area until the person receives medical attention. He could not fly, but he could soar perfectly.
5th place. Stealth suit
When we talk about ability, we’re not just talking about brute strength.There’s also the ability to hide and become invisible, which is Batman’s number 1 job since he doesn’t have a ton of superpowers. His vulnerability makes him paranoid (let’s call it concern) about Superman, who has tons of superpowers and very few weaknesses. In the second issue of Superman the Undefeated, by our god Scott Snyder and art by Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Dustin Nguyena, we saw his stealth suit designed to protect against the Man of Tomorrow.
When Superman flew into the Batcave, he was surprised to see Batman nowhere. He presented a stealth suit that adjusts to whatever thing tries to detect it. Even Superman’s x-ray vision cannot detect him. The suit was also armored, which helped Batman fight Wrath. And with all those lines, he looks pretty damn cool.
4th place. Insider Suit
In 2010, Batman’s life became quite difficult, he was just nearly killed during the Final Crisis, sending him on a journey into the present from the distant past.Meanwhile, his cloak was taken by Dick Grayson, and Batman decided not to appear, but to see how things were going without him. He first appeared in Bruce Wayne: The Homeward Bound: Batman and Robin 2010, Wayne became an Insider and donned a new costume.
The suit combined the abilities of the Justice League: lasers from the eyes, the speed of the Flash, the disguise of the Martian hunter, and others. He could also fly and teleport. Only the ears and the logo were missing.
3rd place. Batman Manbeth
In 2013, Grant Morrison introduced the new Batman in Batman Corporation Issue 12.In this episode, the hero encounters Talia Al Ghul and an army of ninjas, half turned into bats, as well as a clone capable of killing Batman. To fight them, Batman takes Manbeth’s serum.
He also wears the Armor of Sorrow mentioned earlier. Plus a jetpack. Bruce transforms into a monster to fight monsters.
2nd place. Hellbath Armor
In Batman & Robin Issue 33, we are shown Hellbath, one of Batman’s most powerful costumes. Since Batman is one of the few members of the Justice League without super powers, armor was made for him by the entire League.Molten by Superman in the sun and forged by Wonder Woman on Olympus, assembled by Cyborg, fitted by Green Lantern, tempered by Flash and Aquaman, Hellbath looks like the perfect weapon.
Speed, strength and durability. A huge number of additional abilities, such as invisibility, flight. Of the minuses, it is worth noting. That staying in it for too long could kill Bruce. He only used it once to take his son’s body from the Apocalypse, and that was the price he was willing to pay.
1st place. Justice Buster
There is an old saying: if you are paranoid, it doesn’t mean that people around you don’t want to kill you. As we already found out, Batman does not trust anyone and sometimes he is right. This was confirmed in 2016 in the first issue of the Batman End of the Game arc from the divine duo Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, in which the worst scenario happened, the Joker poisoned the Justice League and turned against Batman.
He put on the armor created against the League. He got rid of Wonder Woman with the Bandage of Shroud, defeated Flash at hyperspeed, used a spray against Aquaman, causing dehydration, Cyborg received an electrical discharge, Green Lantern received the same neutralizer.But the most interesting thing he saved for Superman. Gloves with mini red suns, a coating from lasers and icy breath, and for a sweet gum with kryptonite. So who could have laid the most powerful creatures on earth？ Batman, that’s who!

Cleveland were unable to complete their four-game away tour without a loss, beating Utah 85:94.
Russian Timofey Mozgov entered the pitch in the starting five of the guests and in 16 minutes scored 7 points (shots from the field – 3 out of 3, free throws – 1 out of 2), made 3 rebounds and 1 interception. Another Russian center “Cavaliers” Alexander Kaun became the author of a rare achievement: he did not play a second, but scored 1 point. After the mutual removal of Cleveland striker Channing Fry and Utah striker Trey Liles, the Russian was released to shoot free kicks instead of the deleted teammate. Kaun made 1 out of 2 attempts and was immediately replaced.
LeBron James became the most productive among the guests (23 points), but for the rest of the leaders of the team the match was unsuccessful: J.R. Smith, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love made only 13 shots out of 46 for three. Rodney Hood. The defender has 28 points.

For two, they scored 37 points (20 and 17).
For more than two years now, Toronto has not been able to beat Chicago. 60 points of Kyle Lauri and Demar DeRozan were not enough to interrupt the streak.

90,000 The best TV series of January – Rossiyskaya Gazeta
The first month of 2015 turned out to be rich in serial premieres.Many new films have appeared on TV screens, which promise to intrigue, make laugh and scare their viewers. Rossiyskaya Gazeta offers ten of the most interesting of them.
“Galavant” is a fantasy musical by Dan Fogelman, author of the rom-com “This Stupid Love” starring Ryan Gosling. The plot of his new brainchild revolves around the love story of the handsome prince Galavant and his beloved, kidnapped by the evil king. The ardent lover begins to take revenge on the offender, trying to return the lady of the heart.The only paradox is that the lady does not seem to want to escape and is ready to marry the aged king. It turns out to be some kind of loving subcontractor, and in addition to it – the enchanting atmosphere of the Middle Ages and a magnificent soundtrack from Alan Mencken, winner of eight Oscars. The start of the first season was given on January 4 on ABC TV channel.
Agent Carter is one of the most anticipated TV series releases in January. The series is based on the reworking of Marvel comics, the story of Peggy Carter, agent of Sch.I.T.a. She is a fragile woman who leads a double life: office work and secret missions for Howard Stark. The creators of the series tried to achieve such an effect so that the viewer, clicking the remote control or his mouse, did not even doubt that from his sofa he got to America in the 40s. For this, the series was even filmed with a special filter that “aged” the film.
As a result, we get a female version of James Bond, which proves that despite being involved in the “weaker sex”, she is not going to give slack, and if someone bothers her, she will throw it out of the window.And the names of the Russo brothers in the credits, on account of which the film “The First Avenger: Another War”, already make the hearts of comic book fans beat faster. The lovely super-agent is played by Hayley Atwell, who has already appeared in Agents of SHIELD, The First Avenger and Captain America. The series started on January 6 on ABC.
“12 monkeys”. Everything new is well forgotten old. This motto, it seems, is guided by half of the companies involved in the production of movie entertainment.Last year Lynch announced the sequel to the cult “Twin Peaks”, and the creators of “The X-Files” decided that the years passed, and “the truth is still somewhere near”, and sent Scully and Mulder to re-establish intergalactic ties. So it happened with the landmark film of the eminent Terry Gilliam, from which the series was made. The director himself, by the way, was not aware that it was decided to give his film a second “TV breathing”.
In addition to the title, the plot has remained the same: the convicted James Cole, who had a hard time in the film version, will again be moved to the past.All for the sake of saving the planet from a virus that is deadly for humanity.
As the creators told during the press tour of the Association of Television Critics, they did not have the task of making the series as similar as possible to their original movie. The main character now has three times more time to save the planet. Therefore, it is not yet clear what, in addition to its main purpose, the scriptwriters will make it do.
The cast has also changed: Brad Pitt and Madeline Stowe will replace Aaron Stanford and Amanda Schull, who, in order not to repeat herself, did not look at the original picture.Whether the directors of the new version of the classic film managed to preserve the Gillian atmosphere, we will find out in January. Dystopia “12 Monkeys” was released on January 16 on SyFy.
Better call Saul. Not even a year has passed since the audience’s favorites – drug lords Walter White and Jesse Pinkman completed all their cases and retired, as its creators launched a spin-off about their permanent lawyer, Sole Goodman. Only now in the center of the plot is not the vicissitudes that the suppliers of meta faced, but the life of their lawyer.We are promised to show everything that happened to Goodman before the fateful meeting with Walter White, as well as how his fate developed after the Breaking Bad finale. Interest in the upcoming premiere is fueled by the fact that the series, which will be released only in early February, has already been extended for a second season. The start of the next crime drama will be given on February 8 by AMC TV channel. Starring Bob Odenkerk.
“Empire”. Lee Daniels, who shot the film “The Butler” about the fate of black people, presented his new project “Empire” to the audience.Daniels returns to the African American theme, filming the story of the boss of a musical empire, who suddenly finds out that he has only three years to live. As it usually happens, philosophical reflections on the meaning of life, as well as more mundane reflections on who will get all of his rather big fortune, immediately got into the hero’s head. Having decided that if you really play, so on a grand scale, the multimillionaire arranges a real rat race, in which his three sons and his ex-wife will take part.Throughout the season, the family will share the carcass of an unkilled bear. Scandals, intrigues and investigations, accompanied by musical accompaniment by Timbaland. Who will get the musical empire and my kingdom in addition, the FOX channel has been showing viewers since January 8.
“Nice to look at”. Filming the MTV series, a young New Yorker appears on television, diluting her life with online dating and hacking. The girl suddenly decides that one of her internet fans is a serial killer. The only thing left is to bring the maniac to clean water.A young New York hacker is played by the spectacular Victoria Justice. You can follow the adventures of a computer genius in a skirt since January 12.
“Unity”. If you think that cohabitation is the lot of students, then NBO will dissuade you from this. In January, a series was released about two married couples who leave their former life and move to Los Angeles. For some reason, changing the place of residence does not automatically solve all the problems of the spouses. It comes to the point that adults are forced to settle in the same house.All the characters have, apart from problems, is a great sense of humor. The series stars Amandy Pitt, Melanie Lins, Mark Duplass and Steve Zissis. HBO aired the promising premiere on January 12.
“A man is looking for a woman.” FXX channel’s comedy series about the problem of love in the big city. It is corny, but vital, it seems that this could be the unofficial slogan of the series. The romantic but ridiculous New Yorker was suddenly left without a girlfriend and with a broken heart. Let’s hope that after a series of failed encounters, the hero will not be scraped off Wall Street.The adventure story began on January 14th.
Backstrom. Another promising new movie about a misanthrope who makes the world a better place. Mark Mylod, who directed Bones, has released a new project about a filthy detective, cynically, but masterfully, investigating the most complicated cases of Portland. A cigarette and a can of beer are an invariable attribute of a detective, which, nevertheless, does not in the least interfere with his brilliant career. He played the strange misanthropist Rainn Wilson, who is familiar to the audience for his role as a clerk “out of this world” in the cult TV series “The Office”.The premiere took place on January 22 on FOX.
Fortitude. Another story about a detective. True, the main character Morton will have to investigate the cases not just anywhere, but in the cold Arctic.
