The Brave and the Bold scene looks interesting. Does anyone happen to know what issue it is?

What we need is Selina Kyle to steal from the rich 1% to give back to the broke 99% the rich 1% ripped off through the housing market. That would truly make my Christmas this year.

I'm planning/hoping to get a commission that covers something like that. Some protesters tell Batman "I wish you would punch Bruce Wayne in the face and bring him to justice" or something like that.

Heh, reminded me of a Bat Villain I made up called Madame Guillotine, who was basically a French Revolution inspired hipster who had her followers abduct rich people and others she regards as being in the same whole as the aristrocrats from that period of French History, and decapitate them.

She gets some support from the average man on the street, getting a whole Anarky angle to it, but due to her being ignorant and murderous she just have people abducted regardless of whether they actually are good employers, give to charity etc. on the basis that her actions get her publicity.

It is kind of interesting that people have moved on from the cliched joke of Batman and Robin being a couple, to people saying that because Bruce is rich he is really selfish and arrogant with his money, despite both being kind of invalid.

Have they? I honestly hadn't noticed, especially given how far not just the comics, but the various media (BTAS, The Batman, the Nolan movies, even the Burton and Schumacker flicks) have gone to stress how much of a philanthorpist and investor in Gotham as a city and a population, not just a crime-fighting project.

The only person in-story to draw much attention to it was Jezebel Jet... and we KNOW how that one ended up.

Bruce Wayne is at it again with another one of his leftist propaganda stunts.

And the costume is just gauche. Batman is a dangerous criminal, Wayne! Take it off!

Anarky sort of tried that, when he appeared in the BTAS comic (Written by Alan Grant, in a story one suspects was an inventory issue of Batman, with BTAS Dick taking the role probably written with mainstream Tim in mind)

He hijacks some big banquet where the most powerful of the cities industrialists are being celebrated and is prepared to blow them sky high for their Capitalist type crimes. Bruce Wayne (who is in attendance natch) he goes out of his way to note, is actually ethically cleaner than any businessman he's ever come acorss before; no sweatshops, no exploitation, an all round model employer, but decides he's guilty of associating with the other fatcats and so should get blown up anyway.

Yes but isn't it revealed at the end of the story he's not actually going to blow anyone up, it was a huge stunt to draw attention to their activities?

Yeah, distinctly remember my Dad saying years ago the reason he didn't like Batman (and DC comics) was because they were too far removed from real people (he liked Spider-Man films ok). So from an outside perspective Bruce tends to look like a billionaire playing with gadgets. I have always kinda wondered if there was a better way he could spend all his time investing in stuff.

what does that do for people who might go through what he did? Remember Chill beign a criminal because of an economic depression was new to Nolan's films. THere's plenty more where he's a professional criminal and Bruce trying to eliminate poverty wouldn't do anything.

overall I feel like the DCU is a bit more realistic than the MU, whatever the successes of the heroes personal lives.

At the very least the real world's obsessionw with celebrity could help explain the people of the DCU's fannishness for the heroes, who never almost never have tabloidesque scandals. T

I remember one of the issues from "Bruce Wayne: Murderer?" had man-on-the-street type interviews about the murder investigation. Several people didn't believe Bruce did it because of all the charity work he was involved in. There was also an issue of Gotham Knights that focused on Bruce's various charity work: funding and working at a soup kitchen, hanging out with kids at a youth center, pointing out to a mail clerk that he gives free college tuition to all his employees, and convincing another businessman to build a civic center instead of yet another coffee shop because the guy can put his name on it and leave a positive legacy behind.
