Alright, you ne'er do wells! You partied all day with the Legion, so now it's time to show a little civic responsibility! "But how?" you ask?
Why, by becoming one of "Robin's Regulars" of course. Now, when I first heard that name, I thought it was referring to one's dietary fiber intake (when you get old like me, those sort of things take on a new importance). But, no!
Apparently, it refers to a willingness to beat the crap out of guys to prove some kind of point:
Now, mind you, the story was flowing in a completely different direction up to this point regarding a jewel heist. Batman, for some reason, decides to interrupt everything not just to defeat the evil plans of criminals, but to humiliate them with an industrial size can of whoop-ass.
I'm not sure what this proved, to tell you the truth. I mean, I agree that kids tend to idolize the wrong people, like egomaniacal professional athletes and rap "musicians." But I'm not sure how beating the snot out them establishes a moral superiority.
I'm not saying I wouldn't pay cash money to see Kanye West get smacked around. I'm just not convinced it would prove anything.
It was very rare of Bats to break the fourth wall though, don't you think? At least, not unless he was trying to get me to buy Hostess Fruit Pies....
