He's actually turned into a, well, a batman here, not a wolfman. Also: Why is Joe Chill using kryptonite on Thomas Wayne — and why is it working?

His cape was perfect...
Also, I meant to mention before: Most of the art is indubitably JLGL, but I get an overwhelming Gil Kane vibe from the green-cap guy in the second panel — and to a lesser extent a Don Newton vibe from the Wayne-murder figures. Could the page have gotten passed around the bullpen for fun some afternoon when freelancers were in to pick up their checks?
