The “Greatest Batman Ever!” turns 86 years young today and I figure it’s an occasion that is just perfect for commemorating.
Back in the swingin’ seventies some enterprising network exec at NBC decided tat what the world needed was a couple prime-time comedy specials featuring the heroes from DC Comics called LEGENDS OF THE SUPERHEROES. The first special was a slapstick chase comedy that is unbelievably campy while the second one was structured as a roast because that was what was all the rage at the time. In the roast episode we were introduced to a new hero known as Ghetto Man. He represented , according to emcee Ed McMahon, the minority communities and his power seemed to be that he was a bad stand-up comic.
