BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD “The Criss-Cross Conspiracy” Review

Let’s use some terms comic book enthusiasts would follow. Though not quite high grade, "The Criss-Cross Conspiracy" was still a collectible episode of BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD. The short opener, with the Atom (Ray Palmer or Ryan Choi? Not sure, ’cause he’s called "Professor," but they’re both professors, though the outfit looked like Choi’s Atom costume). There was also a short cameo from the ever-boisterous Aquaman and that’s always fun.

The main story began with a flashback that was another wonderful slice of Silver Age comics circa late 1950s/early ’60s: Batman, no yellow circle, with a slightly different look (and utility belt) and young, short pants Robin, too. Again, it’s the producers attention to detail, in art and writing that makes it all click so well. We met Batwoman, right out of that era, revealed to be, despite the costume, not Kathy Kane from the comics, but Katrina Moldoff (the last name a nice tribute to Batman and other comics artists Sheldon Moldoff). The Riddler pulls off her mask to reveal her identity so she stews in anger for ten years as the courts forbid her from thrilling-seeking as a vigilante.
