Batman's Super Hero Sidekicks

Batman is experiencing tough times.  His superhero sidekicks were laid off due to Gotham City's budget cuts.  The mayor hired cheaper replacements to help fight crime.  Batman's newest heroes are SEWER RATS; but these are no ordinary rats!  They're special because of their unusual abilities and large size.  However, Batman wasn't happy with their first day on the job.  See what happened when the rats encountered Two-Face, one of the city's most dangerous villains.  Check back from time to time to learn of their crime fighting adventures and special superhero powers.

Ringo is proud of the superhero capes we made!
Peter saw the "Rat Signal", something Batman uses to let the rats know they're needed to help save the city.

"Hey Batman!  We're ready to help, where's the bad guy?"
As soon as Peter and Edmund saw Two-Face, they realized he was INDEED a very scary super villain - and they hid!  Batman was very angry with them.  But there was no time to waste; he realized he'd have to handle this job alone.
"Hip, Hip, Hooray!  As always, I have saved the day!"
Peter and Edmund were ashamed of themselves, but they were also a little hungry.  It's SUPER VILLAIN SNACK TIME!
"You rats were NO help!  You better get your acts together or you'll go back to the sewer!"
"I have to get out of here and clear my does the mayor expect me to save the city with the help of you scaredy-rats!?!?!?"

    Those capes are so cute! I don't know what's more amazing - the fact that you actually made those, or the fact that the rat is wearing them so willingly!

  4. I have no words for this...this is amazing. It's like rats are the best kept secret or something. Who would have ever thought that such a feared little vermin could actually be...well...more like a dog than a dog?

  5. great capes, friends!

  6. Thanks, guys! Those capes were actually pretty hard for me to make. Ringo said he wanted capes, and I thought it would be easy. Well, it would have been easy for my friends Betsey and Wendy, but it took me way too long. I think Ringo's excited smile was because I FINALLY finished the project.
