@avenging_x_bolt I was actually thinking "thread created by embittered Bat-fan to rustle jimmies of detractors of the character by lumping them all together ". Not to say that there isn't any truth in your words but this hardly seems like a mature, classy, or original way to handle it,
I don't think you know what irefutable means. Sure some people may disparage batman for the reason you give but some people simply don't like the character while others just like to watch bat fans freak out about it.
I like batman but it can get pretty damn funny watching you guys get all defensive.
Also lets acknowledge it seems any form of criticism is called hate and that many of the people doing the criticizing actually like Batman if not among their favorites.
