What surprised me the most about Batman #150 is how little fanfare there was. They didn't seem to make a big deal out of "anniversary" issues until the 1970's, because it was certainly a hoopty-hoo when I started reading comics back in the day.
So, here's the big story:
Wait. A. Minute.
This is a private studio. Law enforcement has nothing to do with this, and yet Batman agreed to provide free bodyguard services for them. Mind you, he's not helping out poor people or anything. He's helping out studio executives.
You know, there has to be a certain level of codependency for someone to be willing to do the work that super heroes do for no payment whatsoever. But it seems like poor Bats is just throwing himself at whatever task anyone wants to toss his way. Well... anyone wealthy, it seems.
I'm not convinced British people talk that way. I've been watching a lot of British television lately and while I've heard a lot of profanity, I haven't heard any "by Jove!" or "old chap" or even "old bean."
Okay, two things:
(1) Have you seen what the Batman robot can do, Batwoman? Because we have here at CMNS, and it's at least as good, if not better, at being Batman than Batman himself. With a robot like the one Batman has, it's a wonder he bothers to leave the cave at all.
(2) Don't be a c-block, Batwoman. No one likes a c-block.
Besides, this is hilarious:
I love off-camera dialogue. Don't you?
Robin, didn't you hear what I just said to Batwoman about being a c-block?
Ah, Silver Age comics. Your silliness gives me life.
See you tomorrow!
