There’s a good reason why you shouldn’t give teenagers the keys to your fancy new car. There’s an ever better reason why you shouldn’t give teenagers who can run at super speed the keys to your fancy new car.

Supereconomics – Part 3

Apparently, keeping track of money isn’t Batman’s strong suit. Or maybe Robin is just really good at cooking the books.

Ether Batarangs cost a lot or the Bat Family is extremely wasteful with them.

So Batarangs either cost a fortune or the Batman Family is extremely wasteful when it comes to using them.

The Paris-Gotham Express

2010/04/19

After being asked to return to Gotham City immediately due to the desecration of their loved ones’ graves, Red Robin stages a rooftop rescue of Batman and Robin in the most dramatic fashion possible in Blackest Night: Batman #2 (November 2009):

A jet plane? With flamethrowers? Awesome.

This is made all the more impressive when you take into consideration where exactly Red Robin was when he received the call at the end of Blackest Night: Batman #1 (October 2009):

I wonder how much cellular airtime costs for the Batman Family?

Since Gotham City, New Jersey is pretty close to New York, that means it’s approximately 5832 kilometers (3624 miles) away from Paris, France. Barring the use of a Justice League teleport device, the only way he could’ve cleared that kind of distance that quickly would’ve been with the help of a Batplane III, which has a top speed of 7081 kph (4400 mph). Even then, though, it would have to have been a modified version of the aircraft with increased fuel capacity since its maximum range doesn’t allow for a transatlantic flight without at least one refueling stop.

However he managed to do it, good show, former Boy Wonder.
