Working Class Batman

(click to enlarge)

Our second DeviantArt picture of the day (this time from Mike P. Mitchell) is “Working Class Batman,” which imagines what the caped crusader might look like without a cape, and without millions of dollars of Bruce Wayne’s technology funding him. He’s just a guy with some padding and a club to hit things with. That’s good enough to stop a lot of crimes. Just ask Kick-Ass.

He actually reminds me of those fake Bat-men from The Dark Knight who were going around pretending to be Batman. I never did quite understand that, or why their mission was any less noble than Bruce Wayne’s.

    You don’t understand how they were less noble? Identity theft!

    It wasn’t “noble” because they carried guns and were willing to kill those who they deemed “criminal”. So college kid buying a dime bag… BAM! Your dead.

    Personally, I’d rather Bruce Wayne/Batman than a guy with an attitude and an uzi.

    Here in Cincinnati OH, we have (or had) Shadow Hare. Some guy dressed as a superhero, doing good deeds in Over the Rhine part of town. He used to call into some of the local talk shows, but haven’t heard from him in a while. Probably got his butt kicked!

    He has a Wiki page

    Because Bruce Wayne doesn’t wear hockey pads

    He looks like Frank Millers Batman in the Dark Knight Returns.

    The Batmobile is a ’55 Chevy.
