Yeah, the mask didn't work at all for me. I'd know that's Robin anywhere!
Of course, I imagine Spider-Man's late because he stopped a robbery on his way, lost the original flowers he bought the 'Cat, and had to swing around for twenty minutes looking for a florist that was open late in Gotham.
His web isn't attached to a building, he's hanging from the BatWing off camera.
Also, Spider-Man's quips and Alfred's dry responses to them add hilarity and joy throughout the dinner.
They are of course celebrating their victory over the Penguin, who hired Rhino and Killer Croc to steal le Diamond de France from the Gotham Museum. Wasn't that bright to hire the two thugs who, er, aren't that bright, because they let the Black Cat infiltrate their team. Turns out the diamond was actually for Mr Freeze, who wanted to create a powerful new set of four freezing blasters for his good friend Doc Ock's arms.
Don't even get me started on how Batman managed to stop Ock while Spider-Man dealt with Freeze and Croc. Catwoman managed to save the Black Cat and the two tag-teamed Rhino, but Penguin got away...
...or would have if an errant Freeze beam hadn't iced him while Spider-Man dogged Mr Freeze' attacks.
Man, this is the most fun comic I've read all year!
What's everyone else got?
