A blog dedicated to the popular mobile game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out
Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Batman, and many fans of the character do not feel confident in this casting decision. From the uproar you would think he has been chosen to be successor to an actual superhero, not just playing a part in a movie. I can understand the trepidation in casting him as the lead in a superhero film, because we all remember the last time that happened.
All of this Batman news reminded me of the episode “Dark Knight Court”, where Mr. Burns assumed a Batman-esque persona, Fruit-Bat-Man. A cross-promotional event was added to the game on March 14, 2013 and rewarded everyone with a free decoration, the Fruit-Bat Signal. However, the Fruit-Bat costume for Mr. Burns had to be purchased with donuts, 90 donuts to be precise.
If you missed out on this event, here is a quick run through of the quests you received after purchasing the costume.
Fruit-Bat-Man: Ah, already I feel my body strengthening to adapt to the extra weight of this cape.
Fruit-Bat-Man: Now to begin the rigorous physical training necessary to become a superhero.
Fruit-Bat-Man: Well, I look good… but I knew that already.
Fruit-Bat-Man: But to be a superhero, it takes more than just the stamina to stand in front of mirror for an hour.
Fruit-Bat-Man: I need to sharpen my mental acuity as well.
Fruit-Bat-Man: Now I possess brains as well as brawn… as well as the organs of a lot of dead cops. My metamorphosis is complete!
Homer: Cool outfit, Mr. Burns. Bit early for Halloween though, isn’t it?
Fruit-Bat-Man: What, you recognized me?! Now I must give you a lashing to insure you never tell another soul my true identity!
Homer: You’re gonna release the hounds on me?
Fruit-Bat-Man: No, I’m going to do it myself. I have to break in my fighting gear anyway.
Fruit-Bat-Man: I’ve got the costume, I’ve got the brooding, I’ve got the no longer fearing death — what’s another week anyway.
Fruit-Bat-Man: Now all I need is a superpower. Perhaps I can take advantage of the fact that my weight is the same as that of a postage stamp.
Fruit-Bat-Man: Ow. Ow. Ouch! Damn, that concrete is so unforgiving. I should have practiced on one of those grassy areas instead.
