  • Bat Back story

    One of my favorites, A ninja shows up in Gotham and is trying to take out Bats, but why? in this episode we get tons of back story on Bruce, his past, training and skills. It a wonderful Batman history lesson.
  • Some much needed backround!

    I love this episode! It gives us some much needed background, about Bruce's training. It also reenforces the fact that, he did not become a master of martial arts overnight, and that it was not easy either. We see that at least, at one point, he was capable of being defeated. I also liked that the writers showed us some martial arts sparring between Dick and Bruce. It clearly shows that Dick had to work for his martial arts skills ,just like Bruce. So many modern incarnations, of this series, just skip over this. A good example is can be found in "The batman" in the episode "Team Penguin", we are told that Robin has been fully trained, we never see him do any training at all.moreless
  • We get to see some of Bruce's past, but it makes very little sence and truthfully bored me to tears.

    We get to see some of Bruce's past, but it makes very little sence and truthfully bored me to tears. I had to fight to keep watching after the first five minutes! I did not like this ep. at all. What was the whole plot behind it? It made little to no sence to me, like I said. It was defidently one of the lesser episodes in my opinion. ((And now I have to write a little more because I ran out of things to say and I still need To get a few more words in or it'll be mean!))moreless
  • Kyodai ken,Bruce's old foe from karate class comes to gotham to get revenge on him for something that happened when they were boys.

    This episode was very good! I totally liked the part where Robin had to come in and save the day. I wished that he had kicked Kyodai's butt though. But,it was a very good episode. But,I think summer just needs to mind her own buisness kind of thing.

    Bruce was so embrassed when kyodai started fighting him infront of summer. My life kind of connects to this episode. I had to deal with something like this before in my life. expect,it wasn't a person coming back for revenge. But,I witnessed my boyfriend involved. So,the lesson learned in this episode is always help somebody when,there foe comes to town and tries to get rervenge.moreless
  • The Night of the Ninja is a great episode because it explains a lot about Bruce Wayne's past and his personality.

    I really liked this episode because it was an informative epidode that unlocked a little bit more infomation about the man behind the mask.We now see why he is so amazing at fighting,but theres more we also figure out that theres someone who can defeat our hero.Plus Robin is in this episode and he is pretty funny in this episode and Bruce says thank you sort of. 8.9/10
