cyberghostface: (Two-Face)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily

Like many people, I think Batman: The Animated Series is the definitive take on the Batman mythos. The show's version of Two-Face in particular is without a doubt the best adaptation of the character as well. This story 'Fifty-Fifty' is a great one in my opinion and is worth reading for the scene involving Two-Face and a phone booth alone.

This is from Batman & Robin Adventures #22.

Two-Face is sprung from a trip to the hospital for skin grafts by some mobsters.

He asks Two-Face for information that could help. Two-Face flips his coin to decide and says he can't.

The mobster threatens to go after Grace if Dent doesn't comply. Two-Face manages to escape and flips his coin to see if he can call Grace to warn her.

Batman and Robin deduce what is going on and help rescue Harvey.

Sal, one of the mobsters, goes to kill them. Two-Face once again flips his coin to decide what action to take.

When Batman comes to he sees Harvey has taken a bullet for him.

"Give it back!" Solid gold.

Not posted here is a scene where Harvey is sitting under guard while some of the mobsters are on their way over to Grace's. He's flipping his coin, seemingly just a nervous habit, while he talks to the guards--right until he springs into action, killing two and incapacitating another because he'd been flipping for their lives while he waited.

It's details like these that make the B:TAS universe stand out from the rest :)

Man I really am digging the idea that some coins are more "evil" than others. That is a great.

Any tabletop gamer will tell you that dice have distinct personalities--Harvey's simply directing his life by a succession of d2 rolls.

Dent giving the coin a personality reminds me a lot of the way tarot readers I know envision personalities in their decks. Spend enough time with anything, and you'll see it as having its own personality, I suppose...

(Also I could totally hear Clancy Brown's voice through this comic!)

Whilst I hear it in his BTAS voice too, just to note that Clancy Brown voiced Luthor, Two-Face was Richard Moll.

Well I'll be damned, you're right! I could've sworn it was Clancy Brown; what a weird thing to misremember!

Nah, like, it sounds crazy but I really remember it in Clancy Brown's voice! It's so bizarre! I remember the change he did between Dent and Two-Face and everything! I must've somehow... I dunno, just really gotten the wires crossed. So weird!
