Ep.150 – Batman No. 150 (1962)

Robin, the Super Boy Wonder!

Mar 15, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée celebrate/reluctantly acknowledge a year of quarantine and then immediately try to forget it with Batman no. 150! The year was 1962, and the Dark Knight's sales were in a tailspin. The Comics Code Authority had robbed the industry of its precious youth-corrupting sex and violence, so what was DC to do? How about some nonsense where Batman fights an assortment of uninspired losers who don't see how owning firearms might aid their criminal enterprise? Or maybe a story where Batman sniffs incense and falls in love? How about one where Robin gets hit by lightning and gains super-strength instead of just a crippling ER bill? It's all here and it's all canon!
