Batman vs. Giant Bug Zapper

... or is that giant BAT zapper? Actually, it's really just a poor, wussy little scientist who's scared out of his mind. So, he zaps Batman ...

Keep in mind, though, that the guy doing the zapping isn't even a VILLIAN -- and just LOOK what he does to Batman! First, Bats gets barbecued:

(Ever notice that Batman never yells "OW" like any NORMAL person?)

THEN, Bats gets whacked over the head with a wooden stool:

Who needs supervillains with their fancy death traps? Any shlub with a bug zapper and a stepstool can take out Batman!

Oh, picky, picky, picky ...

Bats, bugs, what's the difference when a big man in a funny costume faces you?

BUT YOU NEED PROTECTION!

(Yay you brought up Calvin and Hobbes. One of my favorite comic strips as a kid.)

Why, this is delightful! It's so nice to see Batman be human for a change, they always build him up to be the greatest thing ever, and only Superman even has a chance against him, and blah blah blah.

And some poor schlub of a scientist with a wooden stool and a bare wire takes him out.

I love that...

'I don't wish to hurt you... BUT I NEED PROTECTION! PROTECTION BY A MAN WHO IS ALREADY PROBABLY DYING FROM ELETROCUTION! PROTECTION I SHALL HAVE BY WHACKING SAID MAN ON THE HEAD WITH A BARSTOOL!'

hey bats, at least he doesn't wish to hurt you!

Really? They aren't bugs?

Still, something about Batman getting smacked over the head with a stool was great.

The scientist dude actually didn't TRUST Batman's ability to protect him -- which is perfectly understandable given the circumstances here!

The Calvin and Hobbes panel was the PERFECT capper.
