Enh. It's alright. I wonder about the Asian chauffeur who acts like a bodyguard and is probably a better fighter than hero. Looks like someone wanted to do a Green Hornet show and had to settle for Batman.
That's Katana (Tatsu Yamashiro), a character created by Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo in 1983 as one of the Outsiders, a team of young heroes led by Batman. So she has a history as a Batman sidekick of sorts. (In the New 52 continuity, she's a member of the Birds of Prey, which is also peripherally linked to Batman.) She appeared in several episodes of Batman: The Brave and the Bold as one of the Outsiders.
I love you, Chris. You always assume everyone else is an idiot.

So, uh, no, it's not about Green Hornet. It's about drawing on facets of the Batman saga that haven't been featured onscreen before.
Ah. I must have missed the stories where Katana was Bruce Wayne's chauffeur.
