the coin has two faces

Tastemaker platinum badge
created by: Christa Y
The imposing Two Face was once Harvey Dent, district attorney and polar opposite of crime. In one of Gotham City’s most memorable splits with sanity, however, Dent’s alternate criminal personality seemed to emerge along with his tragic disfigurement -- now, instead of aiding the track of logical, evidence-and-reason-based law and order, Two Face adheres to the raw luck of a coin toss and the rule of mad villainy. (Two Face: where Law and Order meets Jekyll and Hyde meets The Phantom of the Opera.) A character who has displayed very similar traits and qualities throughout his various media interpretations over the years, Two Face’s blend contains a similarly-recognizable mixture of light and darkness, where sweet, reasonable vanilla and almond oolong get crossed by spicy, heady chocolate chai, with hints of transformative cinnamon, dark chocolate chips, and cocoa nibs glittering, bakery-like, in the shadows.

The Gotham Cup is proud to serve a hot cup of justice for the Batman fan in all of us. Whether you’re a jaded-hero devotee or a defeat-and-sometimes-pity-the-looney-villain enthusiast, this fandom offers plenty of layered character brews to suit all bat-tastes. On a more personal note, while I cannot name the precise day, nor the hour, when I realized that I was kind of a big semi-secretive Batgeek, I still bear an unflagging enthusiasm for the beloved animated series of my childhood, as well as incredibly silly reruns of the 1960s television classic, the Golden and Silver Age comics (a.k.a. our extremely campy comic grandfathers), and various postmodern Bat-iterations as well, from graphic novels to 20th century films to the 21st century Nolanverse to various all-versions-welcome video games. Long live Gotham City, and long live tea!
