The Pint Sized Crusader in. . . . Prison?

That's right folks Batman has been spotted behind bars at the historic Eastern State Penitentiary, although not in the capacity Commissioner Yindel would wish. The wee crusader took a tour within the walls of one of  America's oldest prison and learned a darker side of American history.

Fun Fact: History abounds at the Penitentiary from notable inmates such as Al Capone, who even had his tonsils removed while doing time, but the prison is unique in that it was the first of its kind to build a radial plan. The radial plan consists of a design similar to a wagon wheel, with one central building, where a prison guard could stand in the middle of the room and turn around to see all the cell blocks that jutted out like the spokes of a wheel.
