After decades as a barely remembered embarrassment, the 1966 Batman TV show has roared back into the forefront of pop culture, teaming up with The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the 1977 Wonder Woman show, The Legion of Super-Heroes and even the TV Avengers.  Seeing the Batman ’66 team-up with Mrs. Peel was pretty incredible, but it was nothing compared to seeing him working with a resurrected Ferro Lad, which led to the question of who ELSE Adam and Burt should hang out with.  James Bond?  Captain Kirk?  The cast of Seinfeld?  The mind boggles, leading us to today’s Bat-query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
