    If I had written it better, there would have been an awkward pause before Batman justifies it. Like it was an accident and he's rationalizing it.

    Would an African Death Bee Antidote Pill count, since it it safe to presume that Robin got it from Batman?

    Though granted, the first EpiPens came into the market at 1983, and the Adam West Batman series was made back in the 60's. I've heard about the development of an epinephrine tablet, but I don't know how that went.

    It depends a lot on how good the writing of a particular comic or show episode is. Also, how serious the show takes itself. Lego Batman or The Brave and the Bold have a lot more license for weird stuff. Plus, you know, the character is over 80 years old.

    The longer the story goes the more reasonable it is for him to have a vast arsenal. He has already faced, lets say, poison ivy, a dozen times or more. So he has the full loadout like antidotes to her mind control effects, herbicide to take down her plants, weapons designed to carve through angry plant life, so on and so forth. Same for the rest of his rogues gallery. It makes sense that he has ludicrously specific counters for his enemies because he knows what they use against him.

    Also he is a rich dude with wild imagination, a risky lifestile and paint. It can be that some of his gadget are things he first bought for fun, but turned them in batman gadgets when there became an indication he would need to use them.

    That could be easily setup. Have one of the newer robins or members of the bat clan be looking through the records or his armory and being incredulous that he would bother to invent such a thing and calling batman out on it. "What on earth is this even FOR?!" "Thats when clayface found a mystical artifact that let him transmute his clay into other materials and I found myself having to create an adaptable gas mask that also produced sound at a specific frequency I could modulate on the fly to disorient him no matter what form he took. The decorative bat ears are actually the speakers for the sonic attack."

    That sounds like something Neil Gaiman would write.

    One common symptom of things you'd want to use EpiPen to treat is a swollen throat and related inability to swallow, so a tablet version probably died because of that.
