Re: "Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

Not bad, though the gag about Katana's safety suit in the opening was overboard. I'm not surprised that her look is just her standard outfit with a domino mask; they've spent seven weeks establishing that look for her in our minds, so I didn't expect them to depart from it much now. Plus it saves them having to build a whole new digital model for her.

Barbara is still cool. I loved how she kept talking back to Whale, being thoroughly unimpressed by her own kidnapping. And I loved "When can I get a grapnel?"

Not too convinced by the origins of the Batsignal. With his daughter under threat, you'd think Gordon would've wanted to contact Batman more clandestinely, not in a way the whole city could see. Not sure how he would've managed that, though.
