how did he figure it out?
watson (6 Aug, 2012)
if he were to explain it, you would feel stupid and inadequate for failing to notice such obvious clues your self. but dont worry, that happens to everyone who encounters him.

Well you see it's pretty simple. He could tell because of batman's smile because he was an orphan too and that made him psychic or something i guess?

Knowing Holmes, he probably spotted a speck of dust on Batman's cape(panel 4)that can only be found around Wayne Manor. In panel 5 & 6, he gauges the Batman's age. Knowing that only 3 people live in Wayne Manor. He eliminates the impossible: Alfred is too old, Dick Grayson too young. Ergo, Batman must be the last inhabitant of Wayne Manor, Bruce Wayne. Also, that's the fake Holmes. Holmes, being a proper English gentleman, would never wear a deerstalker (okay in the country, but faux pas in the urban environment)in the city. In fact, nowhere in any of his novels does it says he wears a deerstalker.

Next time, please mark a comic like this with spoiler-tags. Now all the movies are ruined for me....

According to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes has no knowledge of literature, philosophy, astronomy, or politics. He has practical knowledge of geology and profound knowledge of chemistry. He's an expert singlestick player, boxer and swordsman. Batman however is a billionaire businessman expert in many languages, many forms of martial arts, has vast knowledge of many disciplines.

What makes Holmes´ deduction even more impressive is that he didn´t even know that Batman existed!

I suppose I am the one to who has remarkable knowledge of literature, philosophy, astronomy and politics. My younger brother was too restless to have much interest in such things. But still, he knew much about them, too.

@jorgen: And you apparently don't even know that neither one of them existed. ;}

Why does Batman sound like the Cookie Monster?

Because Morgan Freeman started his career on "Sesame Street"? No, wait - that was "Electric Company", wasn't it? Oh well, here's the clip, anyway: (visit link)
