So, do you ever wonder how much you know about the fandoms you’re in? Since we’ve got some Batman love in our Loot Crate DX ORIGINS Crate this month, we wanted to test you on your love affair with the Caped Crusader.
1.) What did the faithful butler to Bruce Wayne do BEFORE he took on the Wayne family’s day-to-day tasks?
2.) Who was the original voice of the Joker before Producers decided to go with Mark Hamill’s chilling and most notorious villain?
3.) Who was the inspiration for Simon Trent’s ‘The Grey Ghost’ character?
4.) In “Almost Got ‘Im”, who saved Batman from a trap laid out by The Joker?
5.) What villain did Rupert Thorne hire to kill Batman?
1.) Alfred was part of MI6 before becoming the Wayne family’s faithful house-servant.
2.) Tim Curry was originally slated to be the voice of The Joker but Producers thought the strain his voice took would possibly cause him throat problems. You can hear his voice used in some episodes as the voice of Joker’s toys.
3.) Adam West! His rather silly and campy version of Batman was an inspiration for The Grey Ghost, a cartoon series Bruce loved as a child.
4.) Catwoman saved Batman just before getting captured herself. In fact, the title of the episode comes from one of her lines.
5.) Bane was hired by Rupert Thorne and used Robin as bait to try and capture the Bat. Batman, however, found a recording Bane and Thorne’s assistant (Candice) plotting to not only take down Batman but also Thorne. Crazy episode!
