Awesome: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
  • The final scene, pure and simple. Seeing Bruce stand on the building edge looking out into the night and knowing that he is and always will be Batman. Then the music swells up and the bat signal lights up the sky. Bob Kane's vision perfectly displayed.
  • By the same note, the birth of Batman. The awesome music mixed with a simultaneous usage of Tear Jerker makes it probably the most incredible showing of his first donning of the cowl ever.
    Alfred: (startled) My... God!
    • In universe, it's the moment when Bruce finally obtains what he needs to strike fear into his enemies.
  • Bruce foiling an armored car robbery while disguised in a black ski-mask and leather jacket.
  • The opening is purely awesome!
  • The fact that Siskel and Ebert gave the movie "2 thumbs up" and -almost- gave them good reason to turn their backs on the Animation Age Ghetto.
    • Keep in mind the film was not previewed for critics before launch, a sign that the studio doesn't think much of them.
  • Mark Hamill says that this movie was where he truly developed his repertoire of Joker laughs. A collection he used for nearly 20 years before stepping down from the role after Arkham City.
  • Joker murdering his former boss, then taking on Batman and holding his own when the Phantasm arrives to kill him.
