And I know you think you're still young Neyrs, but the only place you could see an Antonio bandaras Zorro Movie on the big screen is at a Revival movie theatre.
Yeah and that changes my point how? The Waynes don't have to take Bruce to a new film on that fateful night.

I'm 54. The reminder I'm not young is staring at me from the mirror every morning.

Re: Why does Batman leave his mouth exposed?

You asked if there were revival theatres in Gotham.

I put forward what I believed was evidence that there was.

I'm sorry that you're so old, but if it's any consolation, half the time I think that you're Michael Ansara who went home most nights for 6 whole years to make love to Barbara Eden in her prime.

It was a rhetorical question.

Barbara Eden is a fine consolation prize.

Re: Why does Batman leave his mouth exposed?

Why would he cover it? When people attack you with knives or guns they don't go for exposed areas of the body that move quickly and are thus hard to hit they go for center-mass. The torso. There's no need to cover it, it's not a likely target.

dental records (if anyone can get that close to him).
"Hey Batman, do you mind biting down on this gel and waiting 30-45 seconds for it to set and then give it back to me? By the way what dental agency do you use?"

Re: Why does Batman leave his mouth exposed?

Many years ago, my comic shop guy insisted that Batman had a Lazarus Pit.

But that was before Knightfall.

That would be silly and sort of ruin the "Everyman" appeal of Bruce Wayne, along the lines of how I feel about the Extremis with Tony Stark. It turned him from simply a brilliant "every man" to someone with a degree of "super"-human ability.

"My Parents died taking me to see Finding Nemo."

or

"My parents died taking me to see Zorro"

From an 8 year olds perspective that's a world of difference.

They could retcon the film every few years in the comics.

"My parents died taking me to see Jason and the Argonauts."
"My parents died taking me to see Dirty Harry."
"My parents died taking me to see Who Framed Roger Rabbit."
"My parents died taking me to see Basic Instinct."
"My parents died taking me to see Gigli."

To show off his new veneers...
Hoping for a Norelco endorsement...
So he can put his chapstick on with one hand...
He's so Botoxed he doesn't know the cowl doesn't go down that far...

Hell with it, I got nothing.

Re: Why does Batman leave his mouth exposed?

There's a (very good) Batman graphic novel called Joker which had the Joker ask Batman this very question and Batman replies, "To mock you."

Re: Why does Batman leave his mouth exposed?

Actually knowing that his teeth would get punched out every other night... Bruce, if he was sensible, would have had his teeth removed and had dozens of perfectly passable and identical dentures to wear as Bruce Wayne and the Batman made before he began his one man war on crime.



Contrary to that, there was a 60s Batman TV episode where Robin was tied up and falling down one of those huge mile high chimneys you find at a factory and Batman threw a Batarang after him which Robin caught in teeth and after Batman had pulled him back up, Burt says something like "Holy good oral hygiene Batman! It's a good thing I believe in brushing after every meal."

Few knew his secret weapon in the war on crime: chronic halitosis.

Are you sure Bruce didn't kill them outside the theater and blame it on Joe Chill?
