To kick off our little tributes to the inimitable Ms. Craig, here's a fun little scene from one of the recent issues of Batman '66
, and a glimpse into what might have been had the show been made with more... modern standards.
Admittedly, the story in itself isn't really worth picking up; its being a one-parter means the central joke (imagine Mad Men
, only with 200% more Batman villains!) is flat and inconsistent, and I'm not really satisfied with how Barbara ultimately won, even though it was nice to see a story try to emphasize Barbara Gordon's
competence over Batgirl's.
But hey, you look me in the eye and tell me one other place where you can see BG beat up four
supervillains at the same time.( An imaginary story behind the cut. Aren't they all? )
