      • A little bit of Wonder Twins water shorts out Android Batman, but water didn't seem to bother him when the jet he was flying submerged in the ocean with the co-pilot's window blown off.

      • When Android Batman relays his instructions to Captain Nemoy, his chest insignia is reversed; that is, a gold bat in a black oval instead of the standard black bat in a golden oval seen when he was first activated.
