I could be mistaken, but I thought Fliedermaus was an enemy of the All-Star Squadron.

I had to Google this, but, yes, there was such a guy. It's just German for 'bat'.

 Strauss' weird 1874 operetta is about a guy who, er, goes to a party when he is supposed to go to jail. Don't ask. The party is hosted by a guy who wants revenge for the time the protagonist tricked him into walking across town dressed in a bat costume, but there's no mention of any crimefighting in it. Not to be confused with Dudley Moore's spoof operetta "Die Flabbergast".

Since you bring it up, linguist trivia time:

I know fliedermaus is German for bat.  Does it literally translate into 'flying mouse' (flieder = flying; maus = mouse)?  That kind of makes sense since a bat looks like a flying mouse.

Actually, it means "flapping mouse" or "flailing mouse" as far as I know. "flying mouse" wuld be Fliegendmaus.

Cool!  Thanks for the linguistic translation, Permanus.

Usually romance languages have similar words and word origins so I thought I could fake that one.

Again, thanks.
