Batman as straight man

Postby bunnyThor on Thu Mar 10, 2005 7:52 pm

The pictures help, but you *do* realize that for anyone over 30, that Batman is not associated so much with the Dark Knight persona so much as the campy Adam West persona? I wouldn't be surprised if there was an episode of that series from the 60's in which Batman very solemnly told Robin that the fate of Gotham City depended on the use of gardening against Poison Ivy, so it was time to pull out the "Bat-Weeder" from the utility belt.

Here, this says it better than any mere words can...

I don't think Ivy ever appeared on that show ...

But I think we do need to give Willis a stern warning about giving Mattel ideas. Maybe not as stern as it might have been back when Hasbro was mishandling the license, but still, not a good idea.

Batman can be funny in soooooo many ways, I tend to make Adam west in my comic retarded and Micheal Keaton, well he's God for some wierd reason. But funny.

My webcomic seeks to melt your brains and makes fun of Adam West and Micheal Keaton. What could be better!

Hehe... all this discussion about Adam West's Batman, well check this out.

And for more added fun, check out the audio commentary for the 60's Batman movie (with Adam West and Burt Ward) ;)

It's not too surprising, really. All DC comics from the 60's were really...umm....odd. Just look at the covers.
