Batman Forever (1995) (part 12 of 14)
Time to see how the villains are getting along. Back at the Riddler’s base, he’s showing Two Face a newspaper headline: “Batman Survives Subway Sabotage”. Also in this newspaper, there’s a headline that states, “Roguish Riddler Robs a Roaming Romany”. Okay, now try and guess which one of those I made up!
Two Face (once again) bursts into tears, and I’d really like to know whose idea it was to make this character a petulant crybaby, as well as a bumbling incompetent. Riddler’s got just the ticket to cheer him up, though. He pulls out a vial of the glowing green liquid that powers his Box, and asks if Two Face wants to see “what our old friend Bruce Wayne has in his head”. So… as well as powering the machine, this stuff is also a recording device?
He pops the vial into a statue’s ear [?] and a nearby monitor shows the results of Bruce’s brain scan. Apparently, they’re looking at the contents of Bruce Wayne’s mind, and I won’t reiterate how ludicrous this whole concept is.
