Another Geek Moment.......Being Prepared or Why Superman would lose to Bats!

Ordinarily, I wouldn't highlight the WB's The Batman, as I have more of a fondness for Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's early 90s effort, but the above snippet reminded me of what the previous series possessed-hutzpah! I always refer to The Batman as the "Jackie Chan" version as an obvious send-up to the martial artist's cartoon from a few years ago which was also known for its substandard manga style animation. Anyway, sometimes a goofy cartoon can serve as an excellent allegory for lessons in life. Case in point, the concept of preparedness. There has always been this playful debate among comic book heads as to who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman. This episode answers the question. Think about how man has always (well most of the time) bested beast. And chew on this adage-If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Enough said! More serious fare coming up in the next entry.
