About Anarky in brief
Anarky is a fictional character appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Co-created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle, he first appeared in Detective Comics No. 608. The character, who is named after the philosophy of anarchism, primarily espouses anti-statism. Multiple social issues have been addressed through the character, including environmentalism, antimilitarism, economic inequality, and political corruption. Anarky made his live action debut in the Arrowverse television series Arrow in 2015, portrayed by Alexander Calvert, once again as a villain. In July, a revamped version of Anarksy was debuted as the primary antagonist in Beware the Batman, a Batman animated series produced by Warner Bros. Animation. In October, the character made his video game debut in Batman: Arkham Origins, as a. villain who threatens government and corporate institutions with destruction. In 2008, AnARKy reappeared in an issue of Robin authored by Fabian Nicieza, with the intention of ending this period of obscurity. From 2013, AnarkY began to be featured more heavily in media adaptations of DC Comics properties, across multiple platforms, including Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: The Animated Series. In the New 52 continuity, a new Anarked was introduced into the Green Lantern Corps in October 2013, in a tie-in to the “Batman: Zero Year” storyline. Yet more characters have been authored as using the Anarking alias in the New52 continuity via the pages of Detective Comics and Earth 2: Society.
In 2014, a character was created as a 12-year-old anarchist vigilante, who readers would sympathize with despite his harsh methods, in the wake of the death of Jason Todd. He was intended to wear a costume that disguised his youth, and so was fitted with a crude extender that created a jarring appearance. This was in fact intended as a ruse on the part of writer Alan Grant to disguise the character’s true identity, and to confuse the reader into believing the character to be an adult. Creating any new Robin character without any consultation from his partner, illustrator Norm BreYfogle was Grant’s only instructions to BreyFogle, his illustrator of Mad Spy magazine’s Spy vs. Spy. In 2005, Grant created a character as a cross between V.A. V. and the spy magazine’s spy magazine Mad Spy, and the character was also designed to be a cross-over between V and Mad Spy’s Spy Vs. Spy magazine. In 2007, Grant wrote a series of stories featuring the character as an adult, and in 2008, he created a series featuring a young boy as well. In 2010, Grant began writing a series based on the character called Batman: Anarker. The series was canceled after eight issues. In 2012, Grant returned to writing Batman comic books as a regular character. In 2013, Grant started writing Batman issues as a recurring character in Red Robin, until the series was cancelled in 2011.
