"Ahh...the rich man awakens, remember me?" Today's BTAS episode is titled "Night of the Ninja" it was 35th produced and 28th to make air. Wayne Entriprises has been a major target of thefts all the sudden, being attacked often and Batman decides he's going to find out who's helping themselves. He comes to find a Ninja, that he takes on and is beating until he fights dirty, Batman is almost taken out until Robin saves him. During the fight the Ninja suffered a tear in the back of his shirt and Bruce can clearly see the tattoo of his rival from training in Japan. His name is Kyodai Ken, he was superior to Bruce back then and regularly beat him in sparring matches. One night while training late Bruce caught Kyodai trying to steal from the sensai, this caused Kyodai great shame and he was kicked out, he vowed vengeance on Bruce...and all these years later he is getting it. Kyodai kidnaps Bruce and Summer Gleeson spelling out his plan. He fights Bruce but Bruce holds back in front of Summer, taking a major beating to hide the fact he's Batman. Robin shows up, covers Gleeson's face and Bruce proceeds to completely dominate Kyodai. Kyodai manages to get away, and we will see him again later. This is a great episode because it showed us Bruce's training long before Batman Begins did the same and it's always fun seeing that aspect of the Batman. Have a great Thursday!
