 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.

Okay, I can't be the only person who wants to see what would happen if Barbara/Batgirl actually went evil (if I recall, both Batman and Robin - and even Alfred! - underwent some kind of brainwashing at various points in the series), but suffice it to say that's not what really happens here. Like I said, the actual payoff is pretty damn weak, but mmm, that Ty Templeton art.

Should no-one object, I believe I shall post something from the DCAU next.

Yes, this was a very odd story, which probably sounded better as a pitch than it did as a story.

I have one from Batman 66 I want to post too, wherein Librarian Batgirl meets perhaps her natural nemesis, the Bookworm!

I've been a fan of Templeton since the elder days, but his Eartha Kitt Catwoman needs some work.

Penguin just looks odd without his customary costume.
