Re: Batman Returns Glowing Thingy?

Chemist Bettencourt-Dias appears to know what she's talking about. Red, blue, and yellow are primary color pigments. Red, blue, and green are primary spectral colors of light, and of course chemical reactions can produce different colored compounds than physical pigment mixtures, too. Best to be sure of facts before sneering.



oh, but i caught on to that possibility, too.
you see, it differentiates with the phrase "two of the three primary colors" and this was a paraphrase by the writer of the article. Dr. Bettencourt-Diaz mos def knows what's what; the writer might have made a type-o or has no idea what any of this actually means...
just to clarify, spectral light colors are vastly different from pigment colors: in light, every color comes together to make white; well, the primaries, which is your basic roygbiv rainbow, but in pigments, it can make a very very dark brown when all colors are mixed, depending on quality of pigments.

/scene :p :lol
i'm such an instigator... :sbob

Re: Batman Returns Glowing Thingy?


Here's the official DC-WB comic on this. Like TJ's script copy, it shows Catwoman cutting her whip, apparently trying to plunge Batman to possible oblivion. Outta character for her, I think, 'cause she's very attracted to the Bat, so I'm glad the movie didn't show that. On the other hand, I think a number of us would've preferred the comic's gas capsule to acid. And if he had an acid cartridge, I'd expect the acid to be far more powerful than something that'd just peel paint. It's also very kitty for her to scratch his vulnerable spot, rather than punching against his armor (remember the Joker!). Oh, well, not that any of this matters a whole lot, 'cause the comic was finalized before the movie, so the movie ends up being the "definitive" version.

Re: Batman Returns Glowing Thingy?


Does anyone have the Returns paperback to see if it gives any more detail?

If we assume it's acid that gives off gas
then Bats would have differnt strengths of it in his belt from 'peels paint' right up to 'peels the armour off a tank'.

We are taking Bat-Trivia up to geek level 10 with this question. :wink

TJ YOU ARE TOO MUCH, MAN!!

Since I think Batman Returns sucked so bad, I created my own combo of 89 and Returns so I won't have to watch all the sucko parts. So while I can take the comic book, no way am I gonna qualify for 10 by buying & reading the full-length loser. Hope somebody else will, though. :p
