You’d Think Batman Would Be Immune to This Sort of Thing, But No

i'll just leave this here

We’ve all read enough books and watched enough movies to know that the surest way to make sure that a certain person is in your presence is to start saying things out loud that you would never want them to hear. And from the tone of voice of all these characters when they realize it and say “They’re standing right behind me, aren’t thety?” one can only assume that they’re familiar with the trope, too. So why hasn’t anyone turned this particular, apparently magical, phenomenon to their own purposes?

The next time the Joker escapes from Arkaham Asylum, maybe Batman should try smack talking him a bit in front of Robin and see what happens.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
