  • The introduction of the Man-bat to the TAS universe

    I figured this episode to be very predictable but it turned out not to be as "transparent" as it seems at 1st glance. The story itself was handled extremely well, as we got to see how others relate to Batman in general and this was one of the 1st instances we see Bats is more than stern and batarangs. He's actually quite the thinker as well. There's a little of character developement going on here with Bullock's big mouth and over-eagerness to stamp out the bad and we even get a little foreshadowing with an appearance from Harvey Dent (even flipping his, err Two-Faces trademark coin). FOr what it's worth, that was a treat in and of itself.
    The voices were on point as well and the animation was well done as normal. If there was anything holding this episode back, it would have been how Dr. March was covering up for Kirk. I thought he didnt like the guy but here he was covering for him. Oh well, that wasn't enough to ruin an otherwise awesome episode in an always awesome series
