Would you like to see Wonder Girl and Wally West Beat Up Batman?
ETA: A forgotten phone usage panel. A very special private phone.
Teenagers in trouble? Who you gonna call?
Batman and the Fabulous Foursome, obviously.
I just love this page o' phones. It's like The Telephone Hour song. Goin' Steady!
Also, I love Donna's brick phone.
And I love that this page explains chop shops.
So the story's about a gang of bad kids, who've had tough times and bad lives. So of course, it's perfect for Batman and a few Teen Titans.
This page, Batman is stymied! Stymied, Buster. Also Robin helpfully points out that Wonder Girl does not need to wear clothes. Thanks, Robin!
Donna and Wally are just great in this story. They go undercover to infiltrate the gang. Check out her shirt. (Hands Off, I'm Mine!)
Donna and Wally end up doing tons of the work in this story, too. Also: phone. This story has a lot of phones. Sometimes Batman is grumpy on the phone.
Other times Robin has to use the phone.
Other, other times, Commissioner Gordon is grumpy on the phone.
Phone moment I forgot to add, and who wouldn't want to see?
The money shot, aka what you've been waiting for:
Donna Troy holding Batman's arms behind his back while Wally West punches him in the face.
(It's all for the bad gang's benefit, of course. Street Cred. Those two new teenage gang members can beat up Batman! They're in!)
Donna gets to use a special power...
Oh no! Don't call Robin a jive turkey. He doesn't like that.
Then Donna and Wally get to be awesome, but that's not included in this post.
And we all learn a valuable lesson. Thanks, Batman and the Teen Titans!
PS: We know covers lie, but not always...
From Brave and the Bold 149, 1979.
The great Bob Haney and Jim Aparo
