SELF REMEDY | Helena Wayne's father had interesting stories to tell.

As a side note, at least Bob Kane knew about residual gunpowder as an indicator of a gun fired at point blank range.

Good thing DNA profiling didn’t arrive until 1986 or Bruce Wayne dripping blood in Dr. Death’s home would have outed him as Batman!

Also worth mentioning, in real life, your body goes into shock upon being shot, which means Bruce would have struggled to get down from that building. In real life he would have gotten light-headed and would started feeling cold from the blood loss. He would’ve especially gotten nauseous and sick attempting to do any rigorous physical activity in that condition!

THE BAT TRUNK | Before there was a Batcave, there was the Bat trunk!
True Story! Before the debut of the Batcave, Helena’s father originally kept his ‘working clothes’ in a trunk in his bedroom where he also changed as well. 
He also changed into his working clothes in broad daylight with the windows wide open. I suppose it’s a good thing Wayne Manor is positioned in the middle of nowhere, away from the rest of civilisation?

75 Years of Batman | Celebrating Batman's birthday Earth-2 style!

The above link in grey is a brief history of the Dark Knight’s Golden Age history in the DC Universe, with a brief discussion on why the Dark Knight has had a special place in my heart all these years.

And yes, there is a reason Helena Bertinelli is featured in this post. Batman’s 75 year history is relevant to her as well!

Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard - 09.The cave

Because Hans Zimmer is a music god, I couldn’t continue the celebration of Batman’s 75th Anniversary without sharing one of my favourite tracks from the Batman Begins soundtrack that always gets me pumped.

It’s also one of those tracks always gets me thinking what Helena Wayne’s experience was like when she discovered: The Cave!

(Originally I wanted to post ‘Preparing Birthday’ as appropriate music for the celebration, but Tumblr said the ‘file was too big. Pfft).

In other news, I promise I will have a post up actually discussing Batman’s Golden Age history, as well as the lasting impression his family as left on me. 

PS. Helena Wayne is in there too, along with a special guest!

While we’re all here celebrating Batman’s 75th Anniversary, here’s a classic track from the Batman (1989) soundtrack by Danny Elfman that always resonates with me. :)

So how did First Contact fair in sales last month?

Looking good so far! I still wish the story wasn’t a continuation of Paul Levitz’ story, but glad to see it did good!
