Appellation Emergency Room


This is Batman's super-power: the ability to punch cool new nicknames into criminals' faces.

Oh, it's true. Just ask good ol' Shok and Ock up there. Before this fight, they were known, respectively, as "Reginald Q. Humpwater" and "Fitzburton Llewellyn-Lopez." "Shok" and "Ock" have a lot more zest, I'm sure you'll agree. If you're a henchman with a boring name, just get in a tussle with Batman and voila! Instant street cred and a tough new moniker. Just be sure to catch him in a good mood, or he'll saddle you with something humiliating, like "Dinky Dong" or "Fartmonster."

He follows up by taking out Crunk, Fwack, and Shivoinnng. Shivoinnng is a bit unusual for a name, but that's what a garbage can lid to the mush sounds like.

Shivoinnng can just tell everybody he's Irish (and a woman).

"army deserters...professional muscle ... willing to do anything for a price..."

Oh, Batman; if only that were true.

Scipio: Haw! I guess not every muscle is "professional", huh?

But watch out, Batman! Ock is about to give your ear a thwap with his pinky!

I like it. "Shok and Ock" deserve to at least be somebody's henchmen. I'm thinking Ra's al Ghul, because he's old and Reggie and Fitz love their antiques. Picture them with matching muttonchops, too.

Anonymous: Good ideas! Maybe you could start a henchman job placement service. I make 'em over; you find 'em work!
