10 Jokes In Old Superhero Movies They Wouldn't Get Away With Now

10. The Batwoman And The Mouse

Cinematografica Calderon S.A.

We're going way back for this first one, back to 1968 when all sorts of cinematic attempts to cash in on the popularity of Batman, thanks to the delightfully tongue-in-cheek TV show of the same name.

Not to be confused with The Wild World of Batwoman, The Batwoman (aka La Mujer Murcielago) features a frequently bikini-clad Batwoman who battles evil and finds time to wrestle on the side.

Although proven to be a credible fighter throughout the film, when confronted with a half-fish half-man monster at the film's climax, she screams and faints.

She does go on to defeat the creature and end the mad scientist's diabolical scheme, but instead of being allowing her to celebrate her victory, the film instead ends with her being scared by a tiny mouse and being laughed at by her two male companions. "Women, amirite fellas?"
