Fruit-Bat-Man Pt. 1 – 5

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 Pt. 1

Make Fruit-Bat-Man Pose in front of the Mirror


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 Pt. 2

Make Fruit-Bat-Man Rehearse Heroic One-Liners


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.

(after the task is complete)

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!

Fruit-Bat-Man Pt. 3

Make Fruit-Bat-Man Practice Punching Out a Crook


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 Pt. 4

Make Fruit-Bat-Man Fly like a Decrepit Superhero


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 Pt. 5

Reach Level 25 and Build the Burns Manor

Make Fruit-Bat-Man Shoot his Welts and Bruises


Fruit-Bat-Man: Ow. Ow. Ouch! Damn, that concrete is so unforgiving. I should have practiced on one of those grassy areas instead.
