  • A great intro to Killer Croc

    This episode is special because it is the series debut of Killer Croc, but instead of just making it all about Batman trying to uncover the mystery (as if that wasn\'t good enough), there is a nice and interesting plot about Bullock. this episode is one of the few were Batman and Bullock work together, and builds up on their relationship. A great quote contained in this episode is

    BULLOCK: Why? Why\'d you stick your neck out like that to help me?
    BATMAN: Because I thought you were guilty too and I was wrong. We may have different ways of enforcing the law, but we both believe in it.

    This one quote sums up the difference between Batman and Bullock, and the similarities, despite thier different methods , they both ultimitley wish to achieve the same goal. As for Killer Croc, he was a great addition to the Batman rouge gallery and had motivation that fitted into the plot about Bullock. Another thing to mention is that this episode had a nice mysterioso film noir feel to it, wich is what I assume the creators wanted the series to feel like. This is an outstanding episode and an ideal one to watch if trying to come into the Batman mythos.
