|How does this thing even take off?|
Dear McFartnuggets: Why come in the movie “Batman” when Batman is in his Batwing shooting guns and missiles at The Joker dead on he misses completely and lets Joker shoot his plane down with that big gun? Batman was totally locked on The Joker’s head as a target and absolutely nothing hit him. What in heaven’s name was that all about? -- Morgan from Alabama
That’s a good question. Some people say it’s because of Batman’s rule to never kill anyone, but in the Tim Burton film he has no problem with killing anyone. Batman clearly was trying to kill The Joker in that situation. There was just something seriously wrong with that “Batwing”. It was great for grabbing Joker’s gassy balloons and also great for making a Batman symbol silhouette in the full moon, but aside from that it wasn’t that great. He did have all his guns locked onto the Joker as well as rocket bombs and nothing even came close to hitting the target. Then Joker is able to shoot the whole damn thing out of the sky with his long ass pistol. I think maybe the Batwing could have been more functional and effective if Batman didn’t make it look exactly like his logo. Conforming to that design probably lead to a few functionality flaws that he was okay with to achieve the aesthetic. Fortunately he was able to get rid of the Joker eventually, but he really could have saved himself a lot of trouble by just making a proper plane.
