As we ponder what sort of view of normalcy the Batboys have...

"What sort of a night you had son?"

"Not bad... Werewolf. You?"

"Same.. Vampire"


This miniseries was basically exactly what it says in the title. Superman and Batman fighting vampires, werewolves and a mad scientist who was keen to create more.

But there is really rather random but fun scene with Nightwing (Proving yet again that there's ALWAYS room for Dick, if you know where to insert it). We already know that Dick had at one point gone steady with an undead, but that was out of continuity by this point

We then cut to the Batcave where Batman is investigating a subject of his own...

Some kids take tadpoles home, some kids take puppies home, THIS kids takes a full grown WEREWOLF home with him...

Ah yes, brick walls, as recommended by all Acme Doctors...

Batman tests the vampire with very low level UV light which causes an extreme reaction, and that's not all...

The werewolf gives some useful plot information, which isn't really relevant to us here, but then passes out.

And that's the end of Nightwing's involvement in the whole mini as far as I know, drop in, unload a werewolf, wander out. Honestly some kids just come home to get their laundry done and a cooked meal... not the Batclan!

Somehow, "Unconscious. I used a brick wall" reminds me of "I threw a rock at him!"(I think that's the line...I may be paraphrasing quite badly) .

"There I was, holed up in this quarry, when Batman came nosing around. He was getting closer... Closer..."


"I threw a rock at him!"

The best part is that it's seemingly something that's actually meant to have happened between Batman and Croc, and Bruce is just using it to look more authentic in impersonating him; In the later 'Trial' episode, the real Croc actually yells 'hit him with a rock', which makes the 'almost got 'im' story even more hilarious because Croc actually is that dumb.

Even more--we *saw* it happen. It was one of Croc's first couple of appearances, where Bats was approaching his lair, and suddenly, there's a boulder flying at him.

I'd totally forgotten about that. It somehow makes Croc even more pathetic.

I love the loving way writers describe and talk about Nightwing in captions. Like they want to make sure we all have a crush on Dick.

There's something about that sequence where Nightwing comes into the cave.
"Hey Batman."
"Haven't been called that in a long time." (glances sideways at trophy case containing costume of dead Robin....) "Oh. You have room for one more?" (starting to worry about the Robin retirement plan, wondering why he never asked about it before...)

I still don't like the entire 'I am astounded to find real supernatural creatures even though I've fought (and sometimes been) vampires, werewolves, ghosts and more many, many times in the past' attitude Batman has in this era.

I've got to guess that generally those sort of nasties generally stay away-ish from Gotham. It's like the Nightside, a lot worse things than that live there.

Or if they are true Supernatural creatures Zatanna or any other sentinel could let him know and this time he didn't have the advance warning and was actually surprised.

I agree. It is a problem trying to get a logical feet on a ground character to deal with the supernatural in a way that seems consistent. I imagine that there would tend to be more crazy people and people trying to use the legends than real vampires, so skepticism would be warranted at first, but eventually however improbable...

Offtopic, but this made me think of: "The invincible Vampire Gorgon doesn't show up in mirrors” (Oglaf).

That was just the title-text from this one (hover the mouse pointer to see). I love her title-texts!
