And here’s the reason why I recently made the entire Batman Family as presented in season four of Batman: The Animated Series. After making my brother-in-law a couple of framed cut-outs (Spider-Man and World’s Finest), my boy wanted one of his own. He also wanted his own DCAU-style Batman. Two birds. One frame.
As for the multiple signals; yes, that may not be canon, but you can imagine how it went over with five year old. (Like a Bat plane. Soaring high above Gotham City).
“Do you think that your 16 year old daughter hasn’t masturbated already? Like, do you really think there’s anything in that scene that this chick hasn’t already tried when the lights go out at night, or in the bathroom, or in the tub, or with the shower head or something like that? I’m telling you, man, I’m not teaching this broad anything new. If I were to create a rating system, I wouldn’t even put murder right at the top of the chief offenses. I would put rape right at the top, and assault against women. Because it’s so insanely overused and insulting how much it’s overused in movies as a plot device, a woman in peril. That, to me, is offensive, yet that shit skates.”
