Awww, someone made Doug a pillow version of the bat credit card?

That must have been the best Arts and Crafts class ever!

Ohmigosh that opening bit with the critic was great.

A comic based on a movie based on a comic. Haven’t they learned from Streetfighter?

To tell everyone the truth, I’ve actually owned a copy of this comic ever since the movie came out, because I was an 11 year old Batman fan boy who didn‘t know any better. But after I started to watch this show in early 2010, I decided to give it the Superman: At Earth’s End treatment. The entire Dark Knight Trilogy was a godsend after this travesty of a Batman movie. Go ahead and say what you can about Batman v Superman, but I still freaking love that movie, highly recommend the Ultimate Edition, and Ben Afleck makes a fantastic… Read more »

Since you brought up Christopher Nolan’s Batman, I should come out and say, as much as I enjoyed his rendition of the Batman mythos I felt he was pretty excessive with his extensive use for realism (Or hyper realism if you will) which may have done a… slight disservice to the DC community (Hence Mos and BvS.) If there’s anything that you taught me, it’s that while superheroes can be taken seriously, and there should be at least some elements of realism to translate it from a comic to live-action, in the end these are still fictional characters with amazing… Read more »

You know Linkara gots da cred when he tells DOUG to go sit in the corner!

Wow, I never thought about the Bat Credit Card that way…

Seriously, of all the idiotic things in that movie, the bat credit card is not even in the top ten.

“WHY DOES BATMAN HAVE A BAT CREDIT CARD?!”

“He’s rich and might need to buy things while in disguise.”

“….. Ohhh……….. THAT’s why……..”

But credit cards leave a paper trail that could lead people to him. Much more logical to have some cash on his person, in case of emergencies like that.

I actually put way to much thought into this, see my above post.

Okay that opening bit with Doug was hilarious. Now there just needs to be a comic about Nickelodeon’s Doug, then the real fun would begin. HEHEHE!

Oddly enough, there ARE perfumes that are supposed to make you horny. Also, I’m so excited for next week. Welcome back you Children of the Corn.

Dethhollow

Horney, I can get. Helping people get off is actually a pretty big businesses even if we don’t really acknowledge it that much. What I don’t get is perfumes designed to make people angry or afraid…. Because, you know, what could possible be more attractive than scent-of insecurity and anger issues?

So Mr. Freeze got to keep the diamonds after he was arrested? They weren’t confiscated, used as evidence in his trial… or returned to places he stole them from?

If they were the diamonds utilized in his suit that would be feasible but at the end of the comic he doesn’t have his suit like in the movie.

I really do like this movie.

Yes! The credit card joke is dead victory is mine! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The Guy who played Bane in Batman & Robin died as a result of playing that role. He died of heart failure as a result of getting pumped up to play Bane

RE: 15:16 – Mr. Freeze’s brain MAY have frostbite, and it’s almost impossible to NOT make fun of Schwarzenegger’s accent…

But linguistically, ‘Gotham’ as a name has origins in old Anglo-Saxon English (~1600s). It pretty much does literally translate to “Goat-Town” (gāt = goat, and hām = home).

Finally someone said a word for a bat-credit card!

You actually point out that Batman commits numerous “white collar” crimes to pursue his mission. He’s a massive embezzler. Being Chairman and/or CEO of a publicly traded company does not give you the right to take whatever you want for personal use. Guess it’s hard to get too worked up over a bad comic adaptation of a bad movie. There’s only so much you can do with that plot and dialog. None of the truly objectional stuff was the fault of the comic creators. As to the Batman voice thing, I think I’d rather have no attempt to disguise than… Read more »

Ummm, you know some of the money made by Wayne Enterprises would eventually become his right since he owns the company? The part of the profit that’s legally his can be used for whatever he wishes to use it for. Ergo, no crime has been committed.

What killed the dinosaurs? The same thing that happens to everything else.

You’re welcome, internet.

8:33 In the novelization, He tried to get Batman to call him Nightwing since he had a new costume. 11:27 Speaking of which, in the movie, Batman & Robin grab all their weapons and gear and leave the Batcave before being informed what the threat was. Seriously, how did they know what to bring with them? 12:02 John Glover actually confirmed he took this role when he learned Uma would give him a long kiss. 15:29 Lewis can probably tell you that in the comics Alfred really does have a niece named Julia. She was a staple during the late… Read more »

The Bat Credit Card is stupid. Its the papertrail. Yes Batman needs money, but it makes sense, when he pays cash or buys parts! of his equipment over shell companies. But in the movie he pays in the open!

You can just follow the cashflow. Card-shellcompanies.trustfounds or whatever-Wayne Enterprise.
Shell Companies tend to work, because the countries, in which they are seated don’t cooperate. But in the DC Universe with supervillians I’m sure someone will be able to follow the money to the source.

Wait… Aunt Harriet is an actual Batman character?

Twilight Man
Guest

Yes, they briefly had her in the comics from 1964 to 1968.

(Alfred actually “died” for a very brief period, only to return with amnesia).
In 1968, the writers, wanting to remove the campiness caused by the TV show, sent Aunt Harriet away and made some other changes.

“What is so ridiculous about a bat credit card ?”… Well, this line that follows the cash register sound: “Never leave the cave without it.” But kudos to Mr. Walker for playing the butt of the joke, I think the “Critic, go in the corner” made it great.

And good job for the imitation of Schwarzenneger’s Mr. Freeze and Truman’s Poison Ivy, and especially Woodrue. I haven’t noticed how funny those lines were before.

I suppose it depends on how you measure it, but the world record of being in complete cardiac arrest in freezing water, and still surviving and effectively recovering, is approximately 40 minutes (by Anna Bågenholm).

For some reason hypotermia prolongs the time that the brain can be without oxygen, without it starting to die.

4:56 Emh… a Credit Card leaves too much traces?
For someone with a secret identity, it’s not a good idea…

@5:35 Of course a more realistic problem for a vigilante crime fighter would be the highly traceable nature of using a credit card. Of course it could actually be an RFID card linked to a milspec encrypted dark net money transfer network and “credit card” is just a term of convenience….

Batman and Robin the movie is by no definition a good film, but personally I always consider it more as a Batman parody film rather than a legit Batman film. And in that sense, I find the campy dialogue, bad acting, and horrible props to be extremely entertaining. And I love Arnie Freeze, you can just tell he’s having the best time of his life in that film. Nolen’s film are definitely much superior to this movie, but Nolen’s film are good film I only want to watch once in my life because of how self-serious and grim they are.… Read more »
