BATMAN MONTH: JULY 2012
BATMAN BEARD COUNT: 23
Actor: Michael Paul Chan
Beard Type: Scientist Beard
Remember when I bet you a Coke that Michael Paul Chan would return during Batman Month? Well, you owe me a Coke, and it will cost you 85 cents. If you don't get the reference, then allow me to refresh your memory:
That's right. Before having small roles in Joel Shumacher's neon train wreck Batflicks, Michael Paul Chan had a more memorable role in another (infinitely better) Shumacher film: Falling Down. If you've never seen Falling Down, I highly recommend you
All Cokes aside, let's cut to the beard, shall we?
The last time Chan graced us with his beard, he was playing the role of a handwriting-analyzing, tissue-dispensing, Business Bearded Executive at Wayne Enterprises in Batman Forever. His character had no name, but it's safe to assume that Chan returned in Batman & Robin as a different employee at Wayne Enterprises. Then again, you know what happens when you assume something, right? That's right. It pisses Batman off.
Thanks to the power of the beard, we can stop assuming these things and start knowing everything.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
THE BEARD IS POWER.
TOGETHER, THEY ARE AS ONE.
BEARD KNOWLEDGE - ACTIVATE.
The answer lies on the chin of Chan, for it is now supporting one of the most powerful forces the universe has ever seen: the Scientist Beard. Doctor Lee's Scientist Beard gives him full control of the world's most advanced telescope, which was graciously donated to Gotham's Observatory Restoration Project by Bruce Wayne. This telescope, coupled with multiple orbiting satellites, allows Dr. Lee to reflect light from any point in space and transmit the signal back to the Gotham Observatory. In other words, Doctor Lee and his Scientist Beard can see anything in the solar system at any given time. Now, that's power.
But he probably used it to watch stupid cat videos or something.
