From Batman Adventures v2 #14.
What does Matt Hagen and Bruce Wayne have in common?
Fast forward to the present.
Look at that smile! Brucie is in fanboy heaven.
But things aren't looking so good...
Uh oh. Bruce doesn't look so happy.
After this Mr. Trent finds out the secret of Mr. Zale--SPOILER--he's Clayface, trying to make a comeback in the movie world. So Trent's kidnapped, Batman figures out what happened, Trent escapes, Trent finds a way to help Batman. But Clayface finds a way to make Batman's utility belt inaccessible. So how did Batman defeat Clayface?
So after this story, Batman de-stresses in the epilogue While Justice Needs Me by watching an episode of The Gray Ghost. Cue flashback!
But young Brucie is no Dickie Grayson.
So Martha investigates, and asks Brucie what he was doing. He was, as he put it, working on his moves.
Traces of Bruce Wayne drama we all know and love.
So off he goes to bed...
Oh, Martha. And you even made a Mommy promise!
But Brucie has the last say.
The makings of a crazy prepared badass.
So the lesson is kids, too much TV can make you become Batman.
