You'd think that a story about Batman being haunted by Joker's ghost would be the highlight of Batman #140.
But not when:
Yeah! Batman and Robin become aliens! Awesome!
There's a story behind it, but who cares? I think it had something to do with compensating for fighting the most poorly-named gang ever:
Guess what these guys are called?
Are you ready?
The Yellow Sweater Gang.
I kid you not. I presume that during the holidays, they become the Hideous Christmas Sweater Gang.
But don't focus on that. Focus on this!:
Robin's little green legs are extra hilarious. Apropos of nothing, I tried frogs legs for the first time a couple of years ago. They tasted like a stagnant lake. Not my bag. I don't know why Robin's legs reminded me of that.
You know, I think they should stay aliens. It would give the series a whole My Favorite Martian slant. I smell the next major DC summer crossover: Your favorite DC characters are now aliens! It can't be any worse than Millenium.

I was skeptical that this thing would pick up radio signals from 50 miles away. My car stereo today doesn't do that. Then again, I looked up what a Germanium diode is to see if it would really work for years without electricity or batteries and... well, son of gun. So, maybe the thing did work like they said. I've got to get my hands on one of those things. Why aren't we using Germanium diodes all the time?
We learned something today, folks. You may now enjoy your weekend.
See you Monday!
