Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont voices the 'Territorial Governor', the second of six cameos he's portrayed in various Batman media. The Senator is an avid fan of comic books in general, and Batman in particular. All royalties and fees from Leahy's roles are donated to charities, primarily the Kellogg-Hubbard library in Vermont where he read comic books as a child. See more »
As a teenager, 'Showdown' served as my intro to Jonah Hex, the infamously scarred bounty hunter of the DC universe. And back then, an old west episode felt odd, but it all gels quite nicely. The story's told in flashback, it's got that great pulp Western vibe, and (here's the key) it's a brilliant use of the Ra's al Ghul legend to tie us back into the days of the frontier. There's plenty of action, explosions and a believable set piece onboard a hydrogen airship. Care has been taken with this story, and it shows.
And as an adult, I get a kick out of seeing David Warner and Malcolm McDowell reunited ("Time After Time").
This one's a winner.
