Friday Night Fights--This Is MY Batman Style!!

One of my big problems with many modern day interpretations of Batman is that he no longer has time for common crime. He's to busy fighting city-wide--if not global--apocalypses, trotting around the globe seeking clues to millennia-old conspiracies, and putting together teams to invade foreign countries to actual stop a mugger or a bank robber.

So for this Friday Night Fights, let's hop into the Wayback Machine, to a hot summer night in Gotham City...




KRAK!!!

And the moral of our story?


"That's why I'm around--to give them a reason not to."

The sad fact is, if the Snyder/King version of Batman had been around when Bruce was a child, his parents still would have been killed, because their Batman has no time for mere street crime and muggers like Joe Chill...

Spacebooger thinks Jim Aparo should draw everything.

A crime-fighter actually fighting crime is from The Brave And The Bold #168 (1980), by Cary Burkett and Jim Aparo.

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? Because if you don't, Batman will go on a 14-month arc hunting some foreign menace and 258 people left behind in Gotham will die. So go and vote!!

Man - that last panel should be framed on the wall of DC Comics as a reminder.
(Of course, they still wouldn't get it. We need a new crew.)

Jim Aparo SHOULD draw everything!

I concur, also.

Snell, did you win? I voted for this fight, for all the reasons you list. I think you should crow about your victories and bemoan your losses to us -- possibly in the overwrought style of Shakespearean soliloquies.

John Hennings said...

Oh, I just realized voting's still ongoing and saw that you're in the lead! Well, my recommendation stands, regardless.

I am far too Midwestern to crow about my victories...except, of course, for being the number one result on Google for "man-on-animal action." That's something to be proud of.

Congratulations on your victory, Snell!!! And I refuse to check the Google thing.
