Can a harried Asylum Director and a soon-be-cured Arkham inmate inspire a ragtag bunch of villains to sweet, sweet baseball victory?

Answer: No. No, they can not. Requested by [personal profile] ozaline from the July Request Post!

The Arkham v. Blackgate game started with a bet between Jeremiah Arkham and Blackgate's warden. Here Arkham hopes it'll be the start of a successful 'recreational therapy' case study for the Arkhamites:

Arkham is assisted in herding the Bat-villains by an inmate Doctor Faustus (not the Marvel one), who's actually thriving in the new environment:

The big day arrives. The Blackgate warden says something interesting, regarding his opinion of the supervillains:

It's time to play ball, and the Arkhamites are doing pretty well.

Look at Firefly: that bastard could've rocketed the hell out of there, but he's just having the best time right now:

Close to losing, Blackgate decides to provoke Amygdala, Arkham's star player, into raging out on them:

And so it all ends how everyone expected it would end: with Arkhamite and Blackgatian alike beating the absolute tar out of each other.

In the middle of the rumble, some Blackgate inmates enact their escape plan via chopper. They're shot down, but the temptation proves too much for Doctor Faustus, the Arkham team's trusted baseball captain:

And, as a final kick 'o the balls, Arkham realizes Doctor Faustus wasn't as cured of his insanity as the director had thought:

The story ends with Arkham nursing wounded pride and wounded head, waiting for Arkham Asylum to be rebuilt.

Jeez. I can't wait to see how the Bat-villains fare at Monopoly. It'll be a slaughter.

Even better, Monopoly: Gotham Edition.

"I believe I'll purchase the Iceberg Lounge."

"Waaauugh -- you're just doing that to aggravate me, and it won't work."

"Hroo Hraii, your club is now mine."

"...Harvey, if you roll 2's ALL the time, we'll be here for DAYS! And I think that die is loaded"

"... No Joker, you can BUY the Waterworks, you cannot POISON the Waterworks! Oh wait, this is the Gotham edition... carry on."

"... just because you've bought the Railway Station, doesn't mean you can tie a sidekick to the tracks Eddie... Oh wait, this is the Gotham edition... carry on."

"... if one of you jerks makes one more tasteless 'Community Chest' joke I will beat you to death with a giant mallet! AND tell Mistah J"

I'm laughing at this more than I probably should.

That strikes me as a bad idea too- people with criminal ties contacting the outside- but the basics of making a comic is fairly reasonable.

So any real reason why the Arkhamites are allowed not only their costumes but functioning equipment as well?

What's hilarious is Firefly only uses his to cheat, not to escape....

The Arkham line really do just have their doctorates printed in crayon, don't they?

this is cracktastic fun and thus would never be allowed to exist in the modern DCU

This would have made an AWESOME Batman 66 episode! Though of course, in those days, the villains were never classified as insane, so everyone was in the main prison population!

Ha, ha, true! The Joker did make his escape once from prison playing baseball in the show. Playing the game was one of the warden's many progressive ideas! :)

Thank you for filling my request, this is amazing. I need to track down two copies, one for me and one for my friend who is obsessed with baseball, and loves Poison Ivy.

Alan Grant's 2000AD chops hard at work, folks. Only a Brit could manage this kind of black comedy.

The outcome is very reminiscent of British football hooliganism, isn't it?
