Warning for suicidal ideation and (though there's no tag for it) ableism.

From the Batman and Robin daily newspaper strip. Story by Bill Finger, pencils by Bob Kane, inks by Charles Paris. 12 strips out of a 36-strip storyline.

In this version, our villain starts out as the ominously-named Professor Knell. His ten years of work with radium lead to an acquired immunity and, of course, a death touch, the latter of which he discovers when he unintentionally kills a friendly dog by petting it, then carelessly touches his assistant.

That last one reminds me of the short story "It's a Good Life" and its Twilight Zone adaptation. "It's a good thing I lost a fortune. A good thing!"

Gotta say, that's actually kind of an awesome motivation, in a horror movie kind of a way, he believes he's mercy killing unhappy people....

Unhappy men, huh? Bet they could find 100 unhappy women easily!

Seems like Doc Radium has good intentions in both versions but ends up with an unhappy ending.

Doesn't it defeat the point of learning to shoot at night if you make the target glow in the dark?

I don't think deer usually glow.

There's really no excuse for that guy's death. He glows in the dark, and he couldn't read the damn sign saying it was a shooting gallery?
