Animated World of DC Comics: Beware The Creeper (The New Batman Adventures, 1998)

From The New Batman Adventures:

Investigative reporter Jack Ryder (Jeff Bennett, Johnny Bravo), presented in the DCAU as an analogue for real-life muckraker-turned-talk show host Geraldo Rivera, finds himself a victim of the Joker (Mark Hamill), who dumps Ryder in the same chemical vat that had birthed the Clown Prince of Crime.

Rich Fogel & Steve Gerber bring Steve Ditko's craziest hero to life in "Beware The Creeper", the title a homage to the character's first comics series 30 years earlier.

In memory of Ditko, who passed away last week at 90.

Rating: B.

Its original airing paid homage to Batcreator Bob Kane, who'd passed away not long before.

Fitting, then, isn't it?
