Batman Cycle Week 2

Some of you may remember the 1960's Batman TV show with Adam West and Burt Ward. Here's a tribute to the onomatopoeias that helped make Batman famous!

This can also be a reference to Professor Zoom (aka, the Reverse-Flash), who is actually a villain of the Flash and wears a yellow costume. In the Flashpoint storyline, Barry Allen travels back in time and inadvertently changes history, resulting in an alternate timeline where Thomas Wayne becomes Batman because his wife and son were murdered in front of him. In this alternate reality, Zoom is the only person preventing the Flash from going back in time to restore the timeline, but it is Batman (Thomas Wayne) who kills Zoom so that Flash can save the past, present, and future...
