My son and I got into a conversation about Batman the other day. Growing up, I loved Batman. (He's still my favorite superhero, along with Captain America.) The "BIF!" "POW!" Batman with Adam West was on TV, and I never missed an episode. We started talking about Batman villains, and I looked up the ones I remembered, winding up at this photo of Cesar Romero, who was The Joker. Dashing, wouldn't you say?
My favorite toy when I was growing up was a Batman periscope. I loved to "spy" on the houses and the people on my street. And one of my clearest, fondest childhood memories is going to an auto show and seeing the Batmobile. I even defied the signs and managed to touch one of the fins. (Yep. I was a rebel.)
