If the stock market's spiraling today, bootstrap yourself up like Batman:


From 2013, Legends of the Dark Knight #13, "Return of Batman, part two" Written by Peter Milligan, art by Riccardo Burchielli. With Waynetech stock tanking, Batman finds "what happens when I go out to play without my expensive toys." While he still has some instincts, he's rusty; and worse, there's a disturbing scene where he hears the voice of his cowl mocking him, for throwing him aside "for a computerized robot suit." Still, with R'as al Ghul about to poison all of Gotham, Batman has little choice but to get himself together again, by going back to basics.

If it's weird that R'as appears to have a stock guy named Buddy, it's weirder that he also has a parrot named Rameses here. In the hand, after Batman has stopped R'as's scheme, and Waynetech stock has started to rebound; Batman regrets not getting his hands on R'as, even if he may have to thank him.

I'm trying to take care of something this week, so light posting for a bit. Still, I always like to make sure something new goes up...

You know, this was actually a pretty damn good idea. Seeing Batman forced to work without his gadgets for a while. Should've kept it like that for awhile.
