Default Re: The "Detective Skills" thread

If you want a Sherlock Holmes effect... just ape Sherlock holmes

1) People walk in, and Batman starts saying things he can't possibly know about them, they ask why, and he explains stuff about their shoelaces and body odor and whatever. Booom.

2) In fights or action scenes, use slow mo and zoom to focus in on what Batman is noticing, then, things come to full speed and he does just the right thing to incapacitate/dismantle the problem.

Easy peasy. Of course, unlike the comics, you have to earn that, especially since most of the audience is familiar with the more... thuggish batman from recent movies and video games.
