" A friend of mine asked me recently, was I gonna go see the new Batman movie with him. But I don’t respect the concept of Batman because of what I understand about politics now. I’mma lay it out for you: rich dude owns a corporation with state of the art equipment, and he uses this to beat up on street level crime. He doesn’t mess with the industrialists, or the super capitalists, or the Murdochs, or the Trumps. He really just fucks with the person that’s on the corner. Batman is a conservative’s wet dream. Fuck Batman. "

THIS REVELATION HAS RUINED MY LIFE
one of the main reasons I’ve never found batman a compelling hero
Not trusting anybody who fucks with this post. Y’all would just have The Joker running loose on murderous rampages I guess then, huh?
And he was created to entertain kids in the fucking thirties. Maybe no one remembers being a child but I sure as hell wasn’t worried about super capitalists. I was worried about sewer monsters and super villains. Any child or adolescent who didn’t get into Batman because he was picking on “the person on the corner” probably wasn’t very popular and rightfully so. Fighting crime is fun, fighting corporate corruption, VERY NOT FUN. I mean holy shit I swear some of you people live on your soap boxes.
I’m not into how cool it’s becoming to hate Batman. Finn does the same shit, just beating up monsters all over Ooo while Princess Bubblegum does seedy shit but we praise it overwhelmingly. The hypocrisy, of this site, I swear. It gets me down.
