Welcome to another episode of I AM THE NIGHT, a podcast dedicated to breaking down every episode of Batman: The Animated Series. Each week, the wonderful Steve J Ray (reviewer at DC Comics News, as well as Editor-in-Chief of our sister site Dark Knight News) and a guest will sit down and dive cowl first into an episode of the greatest animated series of all time.
In this episode, Steve is joined by fellow DCN and DKN writer, and his son, Adam Ray to talk about the 45th episode of season one of Batman: TAS, entitled "Terror in the Sky". So sit back, put on your cape and cowl, and prepare yourself for a journey into the darkness!
Episode Synopsis: When a giant-sized bat ransacks Gotham harbor, Batman suspects that Dr. Kirk Langstrom is up to his old tricks, taking the Man-Bat formula again. Batman isn't the only one. Kirk's wife, Francine, is so distrustful of her husband that she decides to leave him. After further investigation, Batman discovers that this Man-Bat is not Kirk, but someone else, and thus he shames Francine's father into permanently destroying the formula.
This episode is loosely based on "Man-Bat Over Vegas", originally presented in Detective Comics #429, by Frank Robbins, with a number of alterations, including changes to keep the plot appropriate for the family-friendly rating of the television show.
