If this was a movie, I would watch the crap out of it.

Yeah, I'm pretty proud of that pun. It didn't occur to me until I sat down to start laying out the piece. In my mind, this is now the explanation for how Bond turned from Connery into Lazenby. :)

I strongly considered listing David Warner in there, too... his voice is still what I hear in my head when I read Ra's stories.

HA! Same here! Voice talent does not get much better than the B:TAS cast.

Absolutely. I was blown away by Richard Moll's Two-Face in particular -- it somehow sounded almost exactly like the Two-Face voice I'd always heard in my head. And Kevin Conroy's Batman is like Sean Connery's Bond or Errol Flynn's Robin Hood -- Definitive.

This is pretty sweet John.

Ra's would be a great Bond villain, I mean he even comes with his own femme fatale, and lethal henchman. I don't know if he would find James to be a worthy heir though... all the boozing and whoring makes him a little less honorable than good ole big ears.

Yeah, I originally was going to have an unconscious Bond being carried by Ubu, but decided him strapped to the table about to be lowered into the pit would be more fun. :)

Ra's really would make a fantastic Bond villain. He's got the right sort of global ambitions for it. I wonder what Ra's would call Bond, though. He always called Batman "Detective" but "Agent" just doesn't seem formal enough...

"Dick-head," sprung to mind for some reason. ;)

But Ra's is a classy guy. Maybe "Double Oh-Seven." It has the simultaneous effect of Ra's showing his extensive knowledge of Bond, as well as reducing Bond to a number (as he is just a flawed cog in corrupt government machine).

Definitely the more dramatic choice, as much as I love Ubu and his bald headed shennanigans.

Yeah, I think it's so weird that they retconned "Ubu" into being a title instead of the guy's name. I think they may have done that when someone showed Ubu alive & well after he'd already been killed off in another comic.

I'd kick in a few bucks, especially if we can use a time machine to film it circa GOLDFINGER... :)
