Batman: The riddle of the ruby wedding



The Riddle

‘IT’S been far too long – 40 years too long. The bride and groom will be together. The ceremony will be a blast that will last. Everyone is invited. Come along and have a rock ‘n’ roll time’.

Robin: Who’s getting married Batman?

Batman: I don’t know Robin. There’s been no mention of a wedding in Gotham. This message is a bit of a riddle.

Robin: The Riddler!

Batman: Yes Boy Wonder – only the Riddler could put together such a riddled message.

Robin: Is the Riddler getting married Batman?

Batman: No Robin.

Robin: I’m baffled by this wretched riddle from the wretched Riddler!

Batman: I’ve got it!

Robin: What is it Batman?

Batman: The Gotham City museum will have the most expensive Ruby on display at the weekend. The Riddler is planning on getting his hands on it and then setting off an explosion to aid his getaway!

Robin: Holy Ruby Wedding!

Batman: Exactly! To the Batmobile!



Watch out!

The Riddler – you’ll receive one of his riddles and struggle to make sense of it. You’ll spend hours scratching your head, baffled by the cryptic message. All becomes clear when the Riddler’s crime makes front page news.
Watch out for the Joker hiding in the pack. You’ll feel a shot of electricity shoot up your arm when he shakes your hand –  you’ll shriek and shake as he laughs hysterically.

Catwoman – don’t be fooled by her innocent looking eyes and sheer beauty. This milk lapping lady will leave you completely broke – trickery and robbery is her game.


There is hope

Thanks to Batman we have hope in Gotham. We can rest assured that he’s hard at work unraveling riddles and capturing villains. Our hope … Batman!
