Batman can bang any chick he wants but...

Postby kauldron26 on Fri Jun 02, 2006 9:42 am

i swear i am hating batman more and more everyday... i am literally sick to my stomach about this whole loner personality thing that has been going on for decades... i am yet to understand why so many folks love him, i think i just grew out of that phase... i can honestly say he is the character with the least growth and development in DC and Marvel combined. He literally does the same thing in every issue... if this muthafucka is so dark, why cant he kill the joker?? he's a billionaire playboy who doesnt get laid or have any relationships and yet people love this guy to death, why??

i knew something was wrong when i stopped buying batman comics... batman 653 is the last batman comic im ever buying... seriously dick grows, tim grows, selina grows, even fucking harvey grows... how is batman any different from the from year one?? experience in more fighting skills and going through 2 robins thats it.

Lord in heaven please give us a story arc in which the character i love can finally grow up and we can see developments in his life and stop being a bitch that whines about his parents death for the past 25 years...

Had to vent... mabad... your thoughts??

p.s. All Star superman and Powers are fucking phenomenal...

I think he's an overrated character, but I'm not sure how much sense it makes for him to "grow." His parents' death was the defining moment of his life, and every decision he's made since then has been predicated on that event. He doesn't have to be such a loner, but I think his fans like relating to someone who has no social skills yet still kicks ass.

Michael Keaton as Batman sure had getting laid on his agenda... I always thought the character was cool since he was a 'self-made' super hero - no super powers thrust upon him, he did it to himself.
Tim Burton's take on it is still my favorite.

It is because Batman has no superpowers that he is such a great superhero... Batman is driven by his horrible past which keeps him motivated and focused on fighting crime.... He is able to defeat his enemies with brawn & brain because of his vigorous training and hard work. Through perserverance & endurance... Of all the Superheroes, Batman is probablly the most relateable because he is real and because he is driven by something so personal....

He doesn't get laid in every issue because his focus is on a higher purpose and sex would only be a distraction... He is the master of self discipline.....

And what about all those wonderful toys?? He's like the MacGuyver of the comic book world.... How can you not appreciate Batman???

Plus Christian Bale is teh hot!!!

Batman doesn't have sex because he has no time. For many years now they've promoted the idea that the billionaire playboy stuff is not just a way to hide Bruce's dual identity (supposedly, he's sleeping one off during the day). It's an outright disguise. He goes out on the town just enough to look like a playboy, but he is more a recluse -- which allows him to work in the suit after dark most days and sleep a few hours during the day between research and undercover investigation.

Some have posited that there is no Bruce Wayne, that Bruce died the night his parents were shot and Batman started to incubate, years later breaking out of the shell that Bruce became. Batman does not grow now because he won't let himself. He does not believe he needs anything more than his few compadres and his battle. He's mentally ill.

This started after Crisis on Infinite Earths. Before that he had been grim but had some sort of life. He was, in fact, banging Catwoman.

Wasn't Bruce banging a chick about 2 or 3 years ago? Then she was killed and he was framed for her murder? It was like a year long crossover...it turned out Kane was behind the whole thing. He wanted to make sure Bruce/Batman was worthy of training Kane's daughter (the new Batgirl...soon to be lesbian Batwoman, I believe).

My mistake. It's Cain...not Kane. David Cain. And the woman he killed was Vesper Fairchild.

Also...I was wrong about the latest Batgirl becoming the new lesbo Batwoman. Batgirl is Cassandra Cain. Batwoman is Kathy Kane. (wow...if that's a coincidence, then that's really shitty character naming)

Actually though Lex Luthor flows with the same L vibe I was commenting more on the similiarity of Cain/Kane with Lane/Lang. The others would only work if Peter Parker had a friend name Paul Perkar or some such.

Actually, lots of his stuff was built custom for him. They even built a mechanic character into the books post-Azrael, if memory serves.

Yeah, he was even incorporated into the animated series. I was agreeing with the first paragraph mostly. I think Adam Strange qualifies more as DC's MacGuyver..

In the new Detective,820, Batman states he doesn't care about pleasing his father anymore. He also apologizes to a cop he slighted. He's developed an ally in P.I. Jason Bard. He regularly complements Tim during the last few issues of the Bat books and will probably adopt him. He's coming out... sorry,

he's lightening up... no,

His attitude is softening a bit in terms of how he deals with other fellow crimefighters, meta or otherwise. That direction was trumpeted pre-crisis. He just took a year off to bond with Dick and Tim.

The comics are teeming with loners. The comics are teeming with characters that do the same thing over and over.

This guy can't relate to Batman, fair enough.
But Batman is hardly the worst character.
It's been covered as to why Batman won't kill Joker. Many times. Jason Todd just asked the same question right before the Crisis energy wave. Batman beat the teeth out of Joker before Gordon shot the ear off his cowl in HUSH. Batman is a better person.

If Batman developed like this guy wanted, it'd be like a happy man singing the blues.

He's a soldier. He has weapons to fight the war. He is a weapon to fight the war. Crime has taken so much from him. Murder and violence have jaded his soul. His mind is now focused so intensely upon making his streets safer, making the world safer, that there is no progression beyond that. He does NOT, however, let that rage pollute his judgement. He channels his anger towards the fight. That's maturity.

Superman lost his homeworld, but he was raised to adulthood by a loving family in a sane environment. He operates on a much larger scale. He makes the world, the universe, safer. Superman feels like he owes it to the Earth to protect it.

Batman is street level justice. He's fighting from a personal standpoint. He takes the fear that envelopes the oppressed, and uses it against the scum of the earth.

Well, BATMAN isn't truly a loner is he? I mean, he does run around with
a 14 year olde boy dressed in tight fitting orange day glo leotards...

No, wait, NABBLA -- North American Batman/Boywonder Love Association

Bruce Wayne is an eccentric millionaire homosexual pedophile; so basically
he's a super-butch Michael Jackson (or is that the Joker?)...
