Trivia

"Karl Rossum" is undoubtedly a combination of the name of Czech author Karel Capek and "R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots)," the play written by Capek which is credited with coining the word "robot" (Czech for "slave") as it is used now. In this episode, Karl Rossum invents "duplicants"; i.e., robots. See more »

Batman Battles A Briefcase.....And HARDAC
4 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Machines in the form of unusual looking robots are Batman's chief foe in this two-part adventure. The first robot is unlike anything I've ever seen: animated or in some sci-fi movie. It's a briefcase than turns into a walking octopus-like creature! It takes pictures of the Wayne Enterprise security system and attacks people with some nerve gas and a laser.

This is one mean and fascinating brief case!

It goes on from there, with a big computer - HARDAC - able to clone human beings. One, for instance, takes the place of Inspector Gordon. Another infiltrates the Bat Cave.

There are all kinds of happenings in this very fast-moving episode.
