If you ever wanted to see a “Batman Roast,” you get to see it – literally – during the intro to “Crisis 22,300 Miles Above Earth!” (CLICK HERE to watch this episode's intro.)
For me, it’s one of the best “Batman Family Moments” (villains included) of BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD’s run.
If you’re a DCU fan, you’ll definitely love the main story – especially if you grew up on DC comics in the 70s.
Per Batman’s instructions, the Justice League International invites the Justice Society for a “meet and greet” on the JLI’s space headquarters. Unfortunately, the two super-groups don’t, ahem, jibe, which leads to a “Three Stooges Style” battle between the two squads.
As far as the party’s host, The Batman is a tad tardy to his soirée due to the fact he’s battling Ra’s Al Ghul and the League of Assassins down on Earth. (There’s a little nod to BATMAN BEGINS in this episode – see if you notice it!)
Overall, “Crisis 22,300 Miles Above Earth” is a wonderful episode that totally captures what this series was all about. And if you’ve longed for the day when you’d be able to see Batman eating cake in space, your wait has come to an end! - Bill "Jett" Ramey
