DC EXPLODES ON TV - NUMBER SIX OF TWELVE Detective #346: "The Inescapable Doom Trap!" It's the halfway point in our "DC Explodes on TV" series, counting down the top twelve DC comic covers as seen or dramatized on television or in movies. Today it's cover number six, Detective #346, featuring "Batman's Inescapable Doom-Trap!" Here's the cover...
This cover (and story) was dramatized on the Batman TV show in the episodes "Zelda The Great" and "A Death Worse Than Fate."Batteries to power... Turbines to speed... ready to move out!
IT BEGINS! In both versions, a highly unwary Baman walks right into (you might even say blunders, as he himself did) an "inescapable death trap" -- all by himself in the comic version, but with Robin on the TV show.
Bullet-proof glass, and deadly gas from an electrified grating! Yikes!
IS THIS THE END OF THE DYNAMIC DUO?!?!?!!
No! Clever Batman smacks the grating with his utility belt, causing a spark which ignites the gas and explodes the glass cage!
The Dynamic Duo burst free of the "inescapable" death-trap.
Another victory for Batman and Robin, in both the comic and on TV!
