*yawn* Who the hell cares? I did find amusement in the following sentence from the article: Bill Finger, who probably had the biggest hand

Holy Passive Agressive Confusion Batman!

This is one of those cases where knowing certain things is a sign of lesser intelligence, not greater.

The story about Conan O'Brian stealing the Robin costume and prank-calling as Batman villains was pretty awesome, I thought, and worth a look at the article. The rest was rather lame, sadly, though I'm curious about the video of Sean Young being nuts.

I knew about the voting to kill Robin and that he was originally a gun-toting murderer - it's interesting that they didn't touch on that in #1. Lots of things that are central to the character now came much later.

/Batman, in Pathfinder, would be best built as a high-level Ninja (Investigator) with about half as many levels of Monk (Martial Artist). Say Ninja12/Monk6.
//And be Lawful Good.
///Discuss amongst yourselves.
////Writing an article for Wayfinder fanzine with new rogue talents, got Batman on the brain for a few of them.

I don't understand how Bruce Wayne becomes wealthy. I get the back story that his father was a physician, but how does that equate into a billion dollar empire?

Just watch any movie Sean Young ever made

There's movie-crazy, and then there's "dressing up in a homemade Catwoman costume on TV to get a part" crazy. That suggests to me that the more typical "sleeping with the director" actress route didn't work, for whatever reason.

Looking at her IMDB page, she's been in more than I thought - the only thing I remembered her in was Blade Runner. Apparently she was in Stripes? And Dune? It's been a long time since I've seen either.

He uses his grappling hook all the time because he's confused by stairs.
He knows two things about penguins, and both of them are wrong.
His cape gets longer when he meets a pretty lady.

FTFA: Comic book heroes and villains die and come back to life often, but only one death was dictated entirely by the fans. Robin has died and been replaced several times throughout the series, but in 1988, Jason "Robin" Todd's fate was left in the hands of his supposed fans.

So I guess not even the idiots who wrote the article know shiat about Batman...

Funny, both Sean Young and Darryl Hannah were in Blade Runner and then Wall Street.

also, C'MON, Sean Young was in Ace Ventura 1, she was Einhorn. And Finkle! Finkle was Einhorn! Einhorn was Finkle!

I've never seen Wall Street, and clearly my memories of Ace Ventura have been blown up, paved over, and turned into a lovely little garden. Don't disturb them.

She was supposed to be in the Dick Tracy movie, but got fired for not acting the role correctly. She then claimed Warren Beatty made advances to her. Previous to that James Woods actually sued her for harassment, apparently she had even left a disfigured doll on his doorstep.

Yeah, she crazy-cray.

Things like this DO NOT belong on lists like this.....

4. Conan O'Brien once tried to steal Robin's costume in college

That's something we didn't know about Conan O'Brien. It is NOT something we didn't know about Batman.

If I take a shiat on my TV while I'm watching batman, it's NOT about BATMAN................


/ ok.,,,,, I feel a little better now....
 
2012-07-26 02:53:41 PM  
I knew all but two of these. Those two were not about Batman.

I will go home and touch some comics while I masturbate to celebrate. Don't worry, they're all in covers.
 
2012-07-26 03:53:14 PM  
Still, no one at Detective Comics knew Finger existed, so the final credit went to Kane

The ol' unauthorized Finger routine, eh?

Thanks. Interesting read. Lots of very modern detail shoehorned into that article.

You have a point, but that was the only remotely interesting entry on the list.

Kiefer Sutherland could have been Robin in Tim Burton's Batman? Did not know that.
