DC EXPLODES ON TV - NUMBER 4 OF TWELVE Who's Who #23: The Ten-Eyed Man
Continuing "DC Explodes on TV," as we count down the top 12 DC comics as seen on television. Today it's number 10, SUPERMAN 101, which was shown in the "Batman Brave and Bold" TV cartoon, in the episode "Emperor Joker."
As the show opens, the Ten-Eyed Man is stealing some jewelry!
Bat-Mite and Batman appear on the scene, with Bat-Mite reading a description of the Ten-Eyed Man directly from an issue of DC's Who's Who.
Here's the comic -- Who's Who #23, January 1987
Bat-Mite is alarmed to discover that the Ten-Eyed Man was a member of our military's special forces, and therefore he must be a bad-ass fighter or something!
The spread Bat-Mite is shown holding up on nation TV...
Bat-Mite gets an idea! He gingerly replaces the comic in mylar, and files it in a long box...
Then materializes a cactus in Batman's hand!
Batman tosses it to the Ten-Eyed man, whose eyes are in his fingertips.
He catches it with his super sensitive eye-fingers and... YEOW!!!!
