'I did not want to fall into the trap into which so many have stumbled when trying to recapture the "feel" of those stories. In other words, I did not want "goofy" to become "stupid". The guys who wrote those Silver Age stories took them seriously, and that was how I approached my version. The intent was not to say "Hey! Look how silly this stuff was!"' - John Byrne

"Well, Robin, I couldn't tell you my plan, because you might get captured and blab"

"Ummm... You DO realise the only reason I got captured in the first place was because YOU DIDN'T TELL ME THE PLAN you arrogant jerk?"

Wait, is Gordon and Thomas Wayne being old friends something Byrne made up or was it actually the case in the Silver Age?

It's varied from era to era I think.

For a while (in the 70's at least), since Lt Gordon was the person who investigated the Wayne's murders, he knew of them as prominent Gotham philanthropists, but didn't move in their social circles.

Gordon would occasionally make references to how Bruce's parents would feel about him being a playboy with no serious responsibilities but probably not as a friend of theirs, more wishing Bruce would get more involved in things..

When Gordon became someone who transferred into Gotham in Year One, it was done away with completely.

We know that Jim knows that he knows that Bruce is... ;)

Barbara, that little pistol!

Poor Steve! Well, at least they didn't completely ignore the Korean War, which is often the case.

Wait a minute, Batman. You thought you needed to wear a mask over you *other* mask? How you'd even hide the pointed ears from your other mask?

Man, even in Elsewor... imaginary stories, no one can keep Donna's origin straight. Poor girl.

I think John is a little mistaken about these stories. They would occasionally reuse stories, covers were mandated by editors

and frankly I think things like actally showing the alien invasion slaughtering people in the 50s story with Bat-Mite and Mxy
