  • Trivia

    • 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.

  • Quotes

    • (aboard a fighter jet that goes off course)
      Robin: Batman! What are you doing? We're off course!
      Android Batman: Wrong, Robin, we're right on course; for a rendezvous with a submarine in the Pacific.
      Robin: I don't understand, Batman.
      Android Batman: Perhaps this will help you understand. (Android Batman ejects Robin out of the jet.)

    • Android Batman: Thanks, fool! We won't be needing you any longer.
      Aquaman: Batman! What's the matter with you? Batman?

    • Aquaman: You guys look like you're heading for a fire. Let me help you! (Opens a large faucet and blasts Nemoy's guards with a gush of water).
