  1. Ugh. I find myself disheartened tha the first piece of text for Black Canary’s solo series is going on about her man. Girls do think about other things, people…

  2. “Consider this a test…I was here the whole time in case you rookies couldn’t hack it. Which means if your arrow had missed the assassin’s arrow, I would have stopped it in the .008 seconds left before it went through the Prime Ministers brainpan.”

    Boy that wacky Batman. Always educating the lesser heroes of DC.

    On a Bat-Dick scale of 1 to 10

    (1 being “Thanks, old chum.” and 10 being “Are you retarded or something? Who the hell do you think I am? I’m the goddamn Batman.”)

    this Batman gets a score of:

    7 (“Let’s face it, Superman. The last time you really inspired anyone was when you were dead.”)

    Bonus for the yellow logo though.

  3. 11 being the moment in ‘The Dark Knight Strikes Again’ when he beats Superman to a bloody pulp with Kryptonite gloves larger than his head, then nonchalantly asks him to ‘Get Out of My Cave’.

    1000 being the entire rest of ‘The Dark Knight Strikes Again’.

  4. My top spot was going to be “I just shattered your left testicle.” Then I remembered that it wasn’t actually in a comic…but I can wait…

  5. Sure, go for it. Salieri brought up a good point I don’t see why pretty much anything from Dark Knight Strikes again couldn’t be in the general area around #9. If you’ll allow me an hour or two, I’ll come up with a short list for everyone’s approval, and anyone with better quotes can contribute.

  6. This is the best I could come up with without a stack of comics in front of me. Feel free to tweak the list…not like I wrote any of the quotes myself.

    10 – “Are you retarded or something? Who the hell do you think I am? I’m the goddamn Batman.” (Blatant Bat-Dickness, directed towards a child, no justification for hostility.)

    9 – “I’m done talking. Get out of my cave.” (Harsh Bat-Dickness, delivered post-beating, mild justification for hostility.)

    8 – “You’re fired, Dick.” (Classic Bat-Dickness, alienating a loved one, low justification for hostility.)

    7 – ”Let’s face it, Superman. The last time you really inspired anyone was when you were dead.” (Average Bat-Dickness, cheap shot disguised as blunt advice.)

    6 – “Right now you’re bleeding to death. Right now I’m the only one in the world who can get you to a hospital in time.” (Functional Bat-Dickness, lowered score since the target of this line is a criminal, albeit an injured one.)

    5 – “For an ageless Amazon of eternal beauty, you’ve put on weight.” (Normal Everyday Bat-Dickness…an example of Batman’s best attempt (not the facade of Bruce Wayne) to be good-humored and sociable.)

    4 – “I needed someone I could trust. But I had to settle for you.” (Justified Bat-Dickness.)

    3 – “Oliver Queen is every bit the playboy that I pretend to be.” (Ambiguous Bat-Dickness, could be taken in several ways.)

    2 – “Deep down, Clark’s essentially a good person…and deep down, I’m not.” (Low-Level Bat-Dickness, complimentary towards another, but overly critical of self.)

    1 – “Thanks, old chum.” (Completely Free of Bat-Dickness, though awkward, creepy, and completely unnatural sounding since Batman is, by nature, somewhat of a dick.)
