I’m the goddamn Batman.
So, in a recent Batman, there appeared a snippet of dialogue which has gained instant fame among his fans (and, I dare say, the detractors) for being quite possibly the worst and least Batman-like comment ever uttered by the Dark Knight Detective – and that’s saying a lot. It’s not even cheesy bad, but just “Jesus, what the hell were you guys thinking?” bad.
The line is “What are you, dense? Are you retarded or something? Who the hell do you think I am? I’m the goddamn Batman.”
Don’t believe me?
All Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder #2 (Frank Miller)
So, the idea was this: seeing that Bruce is obviously more comfortable expressing his utter prick nature now, what other classic Batman appearances can this little gem be inserted into for fun and profit?
Yes, I am that bored.
Taking the mickey out of Clark and Diana at the end of Kingdom Come
Dumping on the Boy Wonder again in a cheezy 1970s ‘life with Bruce and Dick’ scene
(You know, I’m sure Child Welfare Services would love to hear about the emotional abuse that Bruce Wayne puts his young ward through. And then there’s all those mysterious bruises…)
I was really hoping to find a good spot in Killing Joke, Year One or Death in the Family, but so far? Nada.
Good luck with that.. I owned all of them 🙂
