'I Like ... Bats ...'

… although this bit of recent news might be a little too much for even the cinematic Vicki Vale:

According to the below article, as part of DC’s celebration of 80 years of Batman, they’re planning to release a swarm of 1.5 million bats at SXSW in Austin, TX.


I suppose they’re guano have a good time… :slight_smile:


Rabies! Rabies for everyone! :smiley:

No seriously though that’s really cool.

I wish they would do something cool for Supergirl’s 60th too in May, but it looks like it’s going to be zip. Not even a 60th anniversary alt-cover in the solicitations. :confused: All I can hope for now is a movie reveal, but I am doubtful.

Maybe DCU can do something for her 60th?


I’d definitely rather they release 1.5 million girls.

Errr… did they capture 1.5 million bats just for this event? I’m concerned.

My apartment gets bat visitors regularly during their active seasons, and I try to escort them gently outside but sometimes they don’t behave. Last summer, one refused to land or let me capture it so I opened all these windows and it just kept flying around oblivious. I was like “JUST GO OUT THE WINDOW, IT’S RIGHT THERE. I thought you were the world’s greatest detective!”

There are already millions of Batman’s that live in Austin. I have been there when they fly out of the cave at sundown. It is awesome.
