In The Belly of the Beast, Part 9

Still in the Batcave! (Hee!)

IZZY (in stunned disbelief): You have not one, but seven superhero outfits.

SETH (smoothly, having recovered his balance): It’s cosplay, Isabella. I wear them at conventions, and at live-action roleplaying games. It’s not like I put on a cape and throttle evil-doers….

SETH: There’s nothing odd about them, Isabella. You’ll understand once you see. Hang on a second.

He should look like Doctor Who gone berserk, unless you can come up with something even funnier.)

SETH (proudly): Witness… The Evening Smoker!

IZZY (turning to go): if there is a merciful god, years from now the alzheimer's may - may - erase the image of that bulging codpiece from my brain. Until then, I'm leaving.
