Not for me. Those last two panels are the quintessential difference between TBANTB Batman in comparison to all the other versions of him. The Closest being that nightmare that was "The Batman"

'...Mostly becasuse the concept of de-evolution is utterly ludicrous even for super-science. Why the JLI let Booster catalogue the JLA's stock of super-weapons, I've no idea. They know he just makes up his own.'

Seriously, a term that stupid in a kid's comic?

If it's a good/bad enough plot point for a Star Trek episode...

I dunno, I just don't like such generally stupid terms being used anywhere, least of all a kid's comic, especially when people's knowledge of the basics of Evolution, especially in America, isn't as high as it could be.

And if this is puzzling anything: 'De-evolution' is an oxymoron. It doesn't happen. Evolution doesn't have a singular direction because it doesn't have a specific purpose, in the same way that gravity doesn't have one either. You can't 'de-evolve'. You can just keep evolving. Even if there was a magical ray that could reduce you to a less complex form of life, not only would this not be 'de-evolution', it wouldn't even be evolution; it would be artificial selection, or changes brought about by individual interference.

stig: "It doesn't happen."

I hate to break this to you, but nothing in this book is even remotely possible. And no matter what we called it, having three guys get dinosaur heads would still be absurd and impossible. As you say "It doesn't happen."

I'm reminded of my experience at the theater watching James and the Giant Peach (SPOILERS FOLLOW).....

The movie, about a giant flying peach filled with singing bugs and a kid being hunted by a mechanical rhino and fighting skeleton pirates, ends with the amazingly huge flying peach stuck on top of the Empire State building. The crowd below reacts, in particularly one man on the street, who says something along the lines of: "We're gonna need the biggest crane in New York City!".

The next scene there's a crane, much larger than the Empire State building, hauling the giant peach off the building. Bear in mind, that, this insanely massive peach IS filled with giant well dressed friendly insects and has been hunted by a mechanical rhino and, once again, also skeleton pirates.

It was at that moment when a man in the audience loudly responded to the on screen crane as it hauls the impossibly giant peach off the building:

"There's no crane that big!"

Yeah. We know.

...Yersss, but at the same time there's a difference between writing about something which is impossible and fun, and writing something which is impossible but in a way that might make kids think it is possible. I mean, it could easily be replaced with 'Mutation Ray' or 'Prehistoric Ray' - why go for the term which is born of ignorance?

And it's technically possible that some kids will walk away from a comic believing that a spider can give them powers, that radiation will make them powerful and a cape can make them fly. However, most kids understand that fiction is a place where absurd and impossible things happen.

Do you really think this scenario specifically is remotely confusing to children? Let's just keep context in mind here. In this 3 page story...

1: ...A ray beam designed to devolve things accidentally gives three guys the heads of dinosaurs...

2: ...So they become gangsters...

3: ...And fight a guy dressed as a bat...

4: ...And are ambushed by girls in jet packs with rocket launchers.

I think kids are smart enough to understand that this is entirely fiction.

Where is that quote from? I mean evolution is generally one of those concepts that superhero comics get wrong, so I'm curious if that's a comics writer tacitly acknowledging that fact.

As awesome a concept as the Dinosaur Gang is, I can't help but scowl at the ridiculously, redundantly named King Rex. Even with his nifty little crown.

Maybe King is his title, Rex is his first name and King is his last name?

I think calling him King Tyrant would have been a step up.

Granted, this is "The Brave and the Bold" Batman, so he's less of a prick and relentless, know-it-all, condescending nut than in the comics, but still...

That was the impression I got. I mean, this whole series is about one-time random teamups and awesomeness, so I figure Zinda And Pals jumping in to shoot dinosaurs was (sadly) probably a one-time thing.

At first glance, I was thinking, "A miniskirt is hardly practical for jetpack flight, unless you're deliberately using your undies as a distraction technique."

Then I noticed the jodhpurs. Zinda should consider using those in the main DCU.

Also did they identify who the Lady Blackhawks were? I'm guessing the blonde is Zinda, the brunette is Natalie Reed, and I'm drawing a blank on the redhead.

I love those 'y'know, this is really pretty cool' moments that pop up in comics from time to time. There's so much angst and anger and 'I am a superhero, oh woe is me' in the medium these days that it's really refreshing when someone just takes a moment to appreciate the coolness of it all.

I'm disappointed in how insincere Batman's white mammalian guilt ended up being. It turns out he's a closet anthroherpetophobe in denial after all You should be a better role model Batman, especially in a kid oriented series.
