Episode 26: December 1940, Part 1

Welcome to episode 26 of Legends of the Batman, the show covering everything Batman — from the beginning! The show’s premise is a simple one. Each episode, we cover a month (or so) of Batman, be it comic books, television, movies, whatever, starting with his first appearance in 1939.

The Batman’s crusade on crime must be going pretty good because, this time out, he tackles a new problem: Family relations! Michael K. and Michael B. take a look at DETECTIVE COMICS #47 where the Dark Knight tries to teach parents the valuable lesson that money can’t buy happiness!


Things We Learned:

  • Sometimes Batman is cool; other times, he’s a creepy stalker.
  • Batman doesn’t care if you run over newsboys.
  • Laying on top of a car is a great hiding spot.
  • Breaking through a door is easier than it looks.
  • Money can’t buy happiness.
