Toronto Batman and Spider-Man Engage in Epic Battle
When we last saw Toronto Batman, he was terrorizing random pedestrians on the street. Well, he’s back, and this time he’s battling none other than Spider-Man, who, by the way, is wearing a ratty (and very out of character) pair of red Converse sneakers. Who will win this epic superhero showdown? Read on and find out.
The clash begins in Yonge-Dundas Square, where the two crimefighters have a shoving match and insult each other’s movie. From there, they proceed to the subway where they have an impromptu chin-up contest. Eventually they end up wrestling on the dirty floor of a Pizza Pizza restaurant where Spider-Man beats Batman into submission with a lunch tray.
From the beginning, Toronto Batman is clearly outmatched. He’s slower than Spidey, has a cape which ensnares him several times and simply can’t keep up with the webslinger’s witty banter and boasts. In the end, Spider-Man triumphs over the Caped Crusader and celebrates by interrupting a game of air hockey, like any superhero would.
How does this stack up to Toronto Batman’s original appearance? Is it just as good or not as funny?
