One of the greatest joys of Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader (and there are many) is how Batman deduces the clues hidden in Riddler’s riddles.

Also, just see Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. It’s honestly too good for this world. The digital release is out now, and the DVD/Blu-Ray comes out November 1.
