First Impressions
30 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We get two Batmans flying around the skies of Gotham City is this premier episode of the '92 animated series. Fans of the comic book hero will recall that early on, Batman was looked upon with suspicion and a possible menace, not the hero he turned out to be. Anyway, early in the series, Bruce Wayne has to put up with, and particularly so in this opener when a "bad guy" is imitating him and stealing pharmaceuticals from various places. It is up the real Batman to find out who this guy is and what's the story behind him

The story gets interesting when Batman discovers a couple of scientists are lying to him When one of the scientists reveals what has happened to him since he began stealing and taking these drugs, we see the fake Batman...and those scenes are both dramatic and just plain awesome. That is good stuff and if we see villainous characters like this throughout the series, it's going to be interesting to watch

I was disappointed in the clarity of the animation; it seemed a little grainy and a bit fuzzy. Then again, this was made 15 years ago, but I still expected a sharper picture. Anyway, the colors are good and we get the dark city atmosphere one saw in the movies plus nice artwork and a music score based on Danny Elfman's Batman movie soundtracks, so the visuals and audio are classy.
