The Impractical Password Of Batman #23 (Spoilers)

So there's this scene in the new issue of Batman, now well into the Zero Year arc. With a certain Edward Nigma being threatened by his boss, who appears to have an ace card. An under-floor magnet that can wipe out all record of his work for the company. Triggered by a special phrase.


So it's a word that anyone can use? And what are the consequences?


Here's the thing. That's one really easy trigger word to misuse. Imagine the scenes;

"Man you're really going to raise Cain with this…" SLAM. THUNK. "Ow!"

"Bruce Wayne's butler, who do you think could play him in a movie? What about Michael Caine?" SLAM. THUNK. "Ow!"

"Say Riddler, fancy doing some cocaine?" SLAM. THUNK. "Ow!"

"No pain, no gain." SLAM. THUNK. "Ow! I didn't even say cain!" SLAM. THUNK. "Ow!"
