AND NOW…YOUR OBSCURE BATMAN CHARACTER OF THE WEEK (4/2/11

…Rufus Lane

I want to know more about this Mr. Wimble fella, actually.

From The Encyclopedia of Comic Book Heroes:

The leader of a gang of criminals who are captured by Batman and Robin in February-March 1949 with the aid of some elderly show-business people from the local old troupers home (Batman No .51/2: “The Stars Of Yesterday”)

I’m not sure who comes off worse here: Batman, for needing the help of the elderly to take down this guy or Lane for the sheer embarrassment of losing like this. I enjoy that the entry acts like retirement homes for old song and dance men are a normal everyday thing. That isn’t a thing, right?

AN OBSCURE BATMAN CHARACTER. EVERY SATURDAY. THAT’S THE HIVE OF SCUM PROMISE.
