Batman approaches Mona Charan to join his team. Bursting with confidence, he "foosh"es and rustles in the bushes, bats flying about and his cape blowing out in points behind him as he makes his offer to her. Mona's upright posture, her stony facial expression, her stiffness, all of these betray--even if the words did not--her mistrust of what people want her for. She has the look of someone who has been taken in, and will not be taken in again. The page as a whole does what illustration should do: it shows in every frame the contrast between one character's approach to the world and another's.
