That’s part of what makes the current trilogy so impressive. Batman’s a badass. I’m sure the training he was given by Liam Neeson helped, but it’s easy to forget the days of Bat Shark Repellent.
I wanted to play up the silliness before the movie came out, and this comic was the result! I loved Batman’s ability to just disappear in the middle of a conversation. It’s been parodied in a few places, with South Park being my favorite (“I’m over here now”), but I wanted to put a comic strip spin on it. A little fourth wall breaking goes a long way if done right.
