Most superheroes these days have Lego figures, the latest being Ant-Man. Paul Rudd – who plays Ant-Man – was thrilled to have this honour bestowed on him, saying: “There is something worldwide and timeless about Lego. I’ve thought actually for many years, that Lego might be the best toy. In the same way that I think chess might be the best game, I think Lego might be the best toy.”

 

And recently at Central Station in Glasgow, there was a selection of large Batman Lego figures on display. And as I’ve previously explained in this blog, I was heavily influenced as a kid by the kitsch ’60s Batman series starring Adam West and Burt Ward – and come to think of it, I believe this was the first TV series I began to realize that girls could actually be rather interesting creatures.

 

This was due to the influence of Yvonne Craig – who sadly died this week – who played the innocent librarian with the alter ego of Batgirl. Put a cute girl in a skintight purple outfit and KAPOW! was not just to be found in the fight scenes. Actually, Julie Newmar as Catwoman, she also could be added to the list. Holy Hormones, Batman!

  • These are all from Batman - Two-Face (recently played in one of the Batman movies by Tommy Lee Jones); Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman); and Batman himself in the background.
