Batman, Batman, Batman. With two modern motion pictures behind us, Batman has entered the mainstream man’s mind further than ever. He is an oldie with first appearance in 1939, but has managed to stay unchanged throughout all these years. Batman is Bruce Wayne, was Bruce Wayne and will remain Bruce Wayne [even if Dick Grayson plays substitute Batman in the DC universe at some point]. I bloody loved the movies, but I can’t say that I like Batman as a character. Even if he is prime example that you do not need big old super powers to stop criminally insane and super powered maniacs, to me he will always remain the a**hole that broods.
The creators behind his dark and gritty personality did a fine job at justifying his behavior, but I find it hard to relate to a character that is intimidating in a cold manner and is not easy to close to. I imagine that perhaps if given the opportunity to start a series with him, I would change my opinion, but that has to happen, when I have nothing else to read and I am not sure whether that is humanly possible for my TBR grows by the second. But never say never. If there is a series you think I should try, give a ring. Anyway, enjoy the cool art treatment he has been subjected to. Artists eat him up like the end is coming.
