The creators of the latest Batman series said they were going to mine the depths of the DC Comics vault and trot out odd characters that haven’t seen the light of day for many years. They’ve stayed true to their word, having dusted off the likes of Gentleman Ghost, Blue Beetle, Kite Man, The Demon and several others. Tonight it’s Crazy Quilt, who has plotted vengeance against Robin.
Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) guest stars as Crazy Quilt, who has quite a (ahem) colorful history. His anger toward Robin apparently stems from the Boy Wonder having robbed him of his sight. Sure, Crazy Quilt has taken his place in the pantheon of dubious Batman villains, but this show revels in reclaiming lost characters and giving them new life.
Check out the vibrantly hued battle in “The Color of Revenge” in next week’s Batman: The Brave and the Bold airing Fridays at 8:30pm on Cartoon Network.
