But the rest of the stuff in the room implies that when the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher Batman wasn't eviscerating clowns or neon terrorists, he was still pretty busy. Beside the Riddler's suit is a doll, so at some point, was Val Kilmer punching the s**t out of B-list villain Toyman? Or is that the work of the Dollmaker, a guy who made dolls out of his victims' skin? Is that dude still in Arkham? It's unlikely, considering that Michael Keaton's Batman was one part hero and nine parts sadist, and probably attached a bomb to Dollmaker and peed on him a little bit before even learning his name. But still, the scene adds history to a series that seemed to be mostly about Batman sitting around in his office, waiting for crime to happen.
And then, on the right side, we see a pair of boxing gloves. So good luck, guy who was using those. I'm sure your career as Two-Punch Man was really hitting its peak just before Michael Keaton ripped your intestines out through your eye holes.
But the most interesting part is the big mechanical suit that we see, and on first glance, you'd probably assume that it's Mr. Freeze's suit, since that's what Poison Ivy broke into the locker to get. But Mr. Freeze's suit looks nothing like that. So either Mr. Freeze has been fighting Batman and Robin for so long that he's had to upgrade his technology in order to keep his chilly ass un-kicked, or it belongs to another mech-suited villain. The pyromaniac Firefly, maybe? That would be so awesome, and now I'm so pissed that I never got to see Val Kilmer stare expressionless around a bug man with a flamethrower. What were you even good for if you couldn't give us that, the '90s?
