Peacemaker may focus on the villain and his supporting characters, but James John still took the opportunity to touch on DCEU’s Batman corner.
Warning: The following contains spoilers for Peacemaker Episode 2, “Best Friend, For Never,” which is now airing on HBO Max.
With James Jean at the helm, peace maker He always takes his chances to explore the strange corners of the DC Extended Universe, and nowhere is he more evident than in Episode 2. In “Best Friend, For Never”, Batman not only receives a shout out, but also does the strangest doppelganger, who can change everything For a franchise in transition.
as peace maker Episode one is coming to a close, and Chris Smith (John Cena) was looking to blow off some steam when he met a woman at a bar. They spend a passionate evening that concludes with the punk dancing to the music while his date leans on other things. However, the mood changed soon after the woman attacked Chris, severely injuring him. He narrowly escapes with his life alongside Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) and Adebayo (Daniel Brooks) but still needs medical attention.
Chris receives it by hand Economos (Steve Agee), who is not a fan of Peacemaker due to the constant jokes the villain makes on his account. In fact, things have gotten so bad that The Economist begins listing all the people he’d like to work with, including suicide squad Alams Harley Quinn, Weasel and Pat Mitty, who pique the interest of the Peacemaker.
As The Economist explains, Bat Might is “Stans Batman’s multidimensional goblin,” but, as those familiar with comic books know, it’s a little more complicated than that. Appearing for the first time in detective comics #267 Written by Bill Finger and Sheldon Moldoff, Bat-Mate is a Superman-like character who is the supervillain Mr. McXizbetlik, who spends most of his time terrorizing Superman. But unlike Mxyzptlk, he actually reveres the Dark Knight and even goes so far as to wear a hero’s costume, using his powers from the fifth dimension to organize events to see him in action.
Sadly, when DC Comics decided to take Batman in a more serious direction in the 1960s, the Bat-Mite—along with other supporting characters such as Ace the Bat-Hound—were removed from Detective Comics. He would reappear sporadically, but it was never the same as in the early days, appearing more hallucinogenic at moments of grave danger to the Dark Knight rather than a full figure. However, Bat-Mite will return in later years to make its presence felt in animated series such as Batman: The Brave and the BoldAnd now, he could have a future created at DCEU.
With Michael Keaton’s Bruce Wayne ready to enter the DCEU, Batman’s future could be in flux, and the character’s most clever elements could find their way into his stories, including the Bat-Mite. Alternatively, since it appears that Economos knows the character, ARGUS may have a history with him, which means he could be in line to appear in a future Suicide Squad project or other sub-projects such as peace maker. Either way, Gunn just opened a huge can of worms with a chain named from the Bat-Mite.
To make sure the existence of Bat-Mite is confirmed, the first three episodes of Peacemaker are now streaming on Disney+.
