Trivia

The title of this episode may have come from a line in Cormac McCarthy's ultra-violent old-west epic Blood Meridian Or The Evening Redness In The West (1985). On page 148 in the Vintage International edition (1992), the line reads: "A lobe-shaped moon rose over the black shapes of the mountains dimming out the eastern stars and along the nearby ridge the white blooms of flowering yuccas moved in the wind and in the night bats came from some nether part of the world to stand on leather wings like dark satanic hummingbirds and feed at the mouths of these flowers."

Dr. Kirk Langstrom: Who's back there?
[Batman steps out of the shadows]
Dr. Kirk Langstrom: You.
Batman: I'm looking for Dr. March.
Dr. Kirk Langstrom: He's not here, Batman.
Batman: Where is he?
Dr. Kirk Langstrom: Giving a lecture on human extinction and bat evolution. He's really quite brilliant.
Batman: [holding up a stolen chemical] He's misguided and a thief.
Dr. Kirk Langstrom: He's just a theorist. He was afraid to put it to the test. But I wasn't. I knew he discovered a formula to create a totally new species, neither man nor bat. And once I started taking it, I couldn't stop. I desperately wanted to, but... ...

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.
