Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles was launched today by Machinima. The first episode, entitled "Twisted," is the first of three prelude shorts before the July 28th release of the animated feature. This comes from the mind of Bruce Timm, the man behind Batman: The Animated series and a plethora of other animated features, which we interviewed about the project here.

Here's the synopsis for "Twisted."

Set in an alternate universe where Batman is actually Kirk Langstrom, the dark knight pursues a new, more unhinged Harley Quinn.

That was pretty dark and violent, huh? We got some severed heads in a fridge and a Batman who stops the person he's fighting by draining their blood. Let's not forget about the bodies in Harley Quinn's living room.

Let us know what you think of the shorts and make sure to check out our interview with Bruce Timm right here!

So I guess Harley just always runs around in her panties and lingerie? Lol, the episode was nice though and the ending was... unexpected.

Not if you saw the trailer and the promo videos. THe trailer ends with him saying "Jail?", and I knew he was gonna bite her. I did however not think they we're gonna go super graphic on it.

Batman's suit looks ridiculous even though it isn't batman. I liked Harley quinn though. I hope see continues on as a servant of Langston. Kinda like what renfield was to dracula. Killing her off that quick would be sad

Considering that she kinds looks like New 52 Harley, I think it's his way of saying he hates that version.

The costume designs are admittedly pretty crappy all around, from what little I've seen in trailers, advertising and now this, but they could be a hell of a lot worse if they were applied to another art style, so at least there's that.

I love this. Can't wait for more.

Wouldn't count on it, since Timm also wanted to so some Superman neck-snapping to Doomsday, but was nixed by DC... then he saw MoS :)

Ahh, see I'd never heard about this before watching the video here. It slipped my radar somehow, so that's why the ending caught me off guard like that. Actually, pretty much everything in the video surprised me, with the blood and creepy themes and the language and whatnot, considering it was animated by the same people who did the old DC animated cartoons.

This was pretty rad. Definitely excited for the movie next month. Just hated Harley's costume here I guess but it's not a big deal. She just looks extra slutty lol but whatever. I look forward to seeing Superman!

Man I really did not like Harley Quinn - Dollmaker's outfit. This whole thing was like obressivly grim and gritty which dosen't really fit well so little context.

Geez, Harley. Someone is feeling a bit skimpy today. That will probably be cosplayed by someone.

Um. No. That's like cleaning your carpet by vaporizing it. Didn't really resolve the original issue

If you re-watched the the original Clayface two-part episode you might be surprised at how dark the series got at times. As a kid I found the chemical plant scene and the guy's subsequent decomposition really disturbing.

That was something. Harley Quinn was pretty damn nuts and wore probably the most revealing outfit I have ever seen her wear. Still enjoyed it. I want to know who Vampire Batman is. Is it Bruce?
