So I was watching Batman Year One on Netflix with my wife tonight and a bat flew into our living room.

I do have a son named Bruce Wayne so maybe it was here for him.

And don't be stupid by walking down a dark alley when there's a perfectly good main entrance.

Seriously, that always bothered me...

Still. It's a dark alley, they're rich looking and dressing like rich people... in the most crime infested city in the country.

A few pushy reporters isn't a bad price to pay.

@JediXMan: It was all a pile of bad ideas. If only they had watched Frankenstein instead.

I'm sure there's some elseworlds story about just that.

There was a rather interesting story that showed what would happen if they watched a western.

Essentially, he became Punisher-like.

The absolute only good thing that came out of that arc. It was in the Justice League title pre-Final Crisis, and it was about the African god Anansi screwing around with reality and changing their origins or something like that. It was during the early-mid 20s of the JLA series.

I have general problems with that time of the JLA.

It's not quite at that level, but I had a funny experience like it last summer, when I got back to Batman and comics after not reading anything like it for 15 years. It was right before the Dark Knight Rises and I was at summer vacation with my mother, who lives in a rural area, and for just the 14 days that I were there, and basically living and breathing Batman, we were infested by bats. First we found one in the back entrance, and relocated it to the garage. My mother named it 'Lederlappen' (Swedish for 'leather patch' and incidentally also the Swedish name for Batman). Sadly it died after 3 days. But then we started to discover more. Some were hanging out in the trees, some in the grass around the house, and we think they might have been sick. But two more went into the house - one in the bathroom and one in the kitchen, right while we were eating dinner. While they were cute, and I were quite fond of Lederlappen, the last couple in the house were really, really scary. Especially the one in the kitchen. It sat on the floor and moved around by walking on its wings while it wheezed very loud. We managed to get a box over it and out, but I for one was shaking after, and quite eager to go back to my own home the day after. It didn't help that we both have arachnophobia, and when you saw it from the corner of the eye, it looked like this absolutely *gigantic* spider.

Lederlappen - R.I.P.

Good.

Now let it kill you and your wife, so that your son can begin his destined journey.

How old is your son? IIRC,depending on which origin we're talking about, Bruce is either 8 or 10 when his parents die.

@Manwhohaseverything: He is 4

Dude thats awesome. Once a bat flew into my dark dorm room in college. I had the lights off playing halo. A guy knocks on my open door, and says, dude a bat flew in here. Im like shut up. We turned on the lights, and there was a bat hanging like 3 feet from my head. I would have gone to bed with it in there, I had no freaking idea.

It's official, you must fake your death in order to strive your son to become a superhero, and then you must become the supervillain that he'll one day fight, in order to convince him to face evil everywhere.

Awwww, it's kinda cute...but yes, now you must become Batman 

#46 Posted by akbogert (3227 posts) - - Show Bio

That's a fantastic picture (and an amusing story). Its lower teeth are so small...actually the whole thing is tiny, what with the thumb for comparison.

#47 Posted by gravitypress (2066 posts) - - Show Bio

@akbogert: Yeah he was about 8 inches across in flight but very compact when curled up.
