This is undoubtably the worst episode of The Batman in season four. The fact that he could constantly make clones of himself and how they were nothing like the original because the radiation affected them? If this things were radiated clones of the original Johnny, wouldn't that mean that the original would have to be made of the radiation material himself? And how his clones were nothing like him as far as personality goes? The writers did not describe how it all worked either. And the whole art thing? The original was a collecter of fine arts, and then his clones want to go out and steal it? Why didn't they try and do something bigger like one of the clones said? This episode did not make any sense to me. I thought the everywhere man would be like Lloyd Ventris from the BTAS episode "See No Evil" where he used that special purloined plastic to dissappear and re-appear. I figured that that is how he would have managed to vanish from the closet. But the whole radiation thing? Bleh. Sorry, but this episode did not do anything for me. But that's just my opinion.

[shadow=green,left,300] Brandon Routh did well as the Everywhere Man, an interesting episode, makes you think. I enjoyed it, but I know Riddler's Revenge it going to blow every other episode away ;D. Funny, I saw a Blackmask preview and it said his episode is next Saturday, I guess the airing order changed. The sooner the better I say, I give the episode a 9 out of 10. I liked the ending where Robin duplicates himself, that was cool. [/shadow]

I thought this episode was actually not bad. HUSH, imo, I think you just thought too much to enjoy the episode. I tried ignoring the radiation nonsense and found myself satisfied that Batman was back on air after 3 weeks. Although I am hopiung for an improvement next week. The only flaw I found in this episode was when Robin hit John, he didnt have the prototype on, then it mysteriously appeared in his next scene, which was about 2 seconds later.

The only thing I really disliked, was Commisioner Gordon. It seems like he isnt much of a recurring role anymore. Beginning to shape up like Yin and Rojas. But Im getting way ahead of myself. Only time will tell.
hmm it wasnt my favorite episode. There wasnt anything spectacular about it and because the commercial revealed he could duplicate himself, there wasnt much mystery and it felt like it was almost dragging on. My favorite part was seeing the black mask preview! he looks sooo cool can't wait fpor next week! overall i would give this episode 8 out of 10

Next to "A Matter of Family", this is my second favorite episode of Season 4 so far. I didn't see anything wrong with this episode at all. It was nice to see Alfred again, but I don't like that Gordon had a non-speaking cameo. Brandon Routh was pretty good as the Everywhere Man. I liked the twist that the original John was being held captive. I didn't see it coming.
Next week, Black Mask makes his debut. That's going to be a great B-Day present for me. ;D
I thought it was pretty good. Some good action sequences, and I like the fact that Bruce Wayne and Alfred both had large parts in the plot of the story. I also liked the attention paid to Batman's detective abilities. The lack of a good scientific basis for the villain's ability to duplicate in such a way didn't bother me at all. I'm always going to be appreciative of any episodes that introduce a new adversary for Batman, instead of trotting out the same ol' Penguin or Joker yarns. 8/10 ;D

I am very excited for Black Mask's debut next saturday, I've always wanted to see this spin on Batman take down an actual gangster who doesn't have superpowers or mental problems, I would say Wesker and Scarface but that's not exactly a normal gangster. Should be very interesting, I'm looking forward to it.

Another good ep. I can easily see us getting a figure of Everywhereman down the road. Most of the parts are already molded and all would need is a new paint job. Also what would be a cool accessory is what one of the naruto figures has, this cardboard thing that pulls out to show 3-4 copies of himself. Think that but with the everywhere man. Good to see Commisioner Gordon back. Hopefully Mitch Pilegi voiced some future eps. Seeing the legion of Robins was cool. But did anyone else think of the hardwater rehydrated goons in the old 60's movie when the everywheremen were taking out the robins? How they both just bopped out of existance with just a hit.

That is a great observation. While I had not thought of that when I was watching, you are very correct.
Hearing Brandon's voice was really cool and the concept of the entire episode was a great one, but for some reason it didn't play out all that well in action.
Personally I want to keep seeing more of Batman's real villians because Batman has "THE" GREATEST Rogue's Gallery in the history of comics and there are plenty of villians to choose from where you don't need to be making ones up for Bats to fight

saw this ep yesterday and it was great, having not seen a new episode of 'the batman' for a few weeks (although i did finally get to see clayface of tragedy last week) i was really impressed with this ep, brandon routh did a great job as the everywhereman, and after seeing him in superman returns, i was not sure sure if he could play a good villain, but he sure can
