We hope you’re ready for Rev. Roman Sionis, Bat-Fanatic, because he’s got a sermon prepared for you! This time Joe and Kendall dissect the Iron Age appearances of the Black Mask. If you love Batman from the 80s and 90s, this episode is for you! Can someone truly be crazier than the Joker AND deadlier than Ra’s Al Ghul? No, but we’ll still let you decide, Bat-Fanatics. So prepare for philosophical mask discussions, pre-Crisis factoids about all your favorite villains, and reusable plot points on parade as we are constantly reminded that Roman Sionis “lost face” to become the Black Mask.
