Saw an old Batman episode yesterday. I think I like Adam West best after all.

I always thought of Batman as goofy and found it strange for all these "dark" and gloomy depictions crop up. They're entertaining but no matter how serious they try to be, they're still goofy.

A guy dresses up like a bat to fight crime. Nobody ever recognises him under the mask, despite his high profile. He has an arch enemy. The arch enemy has a theme. The Joker or The Penguin.

Goofy, all of it.

Come to think of it, Ben Affleck could work out ... and bring back the Kapow! captions.

True, but that was more for another time. Jumping over giant coins, sleeping next to Dick Grayson... The character has undergone a massive re-imagining since, fighting murderers and rapists. You should check out Batman Year One, one of the best graphic novels out there. Bats is seriously one creepy dude, one step away from the loony bill.
