"I'd also like to stress that the portrayal of Batman presented here is not definitive and is not necessarily how I would write the character otherwise. The repressed, armoured, uncertain and sexually frozen man in Arkham Asylum was intended as a critique of the '80s interpretation of Batman as violent, driven and borderline psychopathic. My own later portrayal of Batman in the JLA comic was one which emphasized the character's sanity and dignity; in the end, I figured that anyone who had gone so far and been so successful in his quest to avenge his parents' death and to help other people would have ended up pretty much straightened out. Bruce Wayne would only have become conflicted and mentally unstable if he had NOT put on his scary bat-suit and found the perfect outlet for his feelings of rage, guilt and revenge." - Grant Morrison

Some of you may remember the time I posted that one story where Bruce is depicted as a completely realistic corporate CEO. Well, more realistic than almost any other take, anyways. Good times, good times.

Many of you rightfully called out that portrayal as terrible, and that pondering the "realistic" foundations of Wayne Enterprises misses the whole point of Batman very, very badly. This recent article from Chris Sims on that very topic got me thinking: what would be the total, polar opposite of Batman: Tenses? What story would have Bruce's boundless charity and philanthropy play a central role, not just be relegated to a plot convenience or a fuzzy-wuzzy epilogue?

Ladies and germs, I believe I've found the answer. And the answer may shock you to your very core!

When last we left our probably-pyrokinetic heroine, she and her friends were supping with Killer Croc when suddenly: Batman!

Hooray, they're saved! )

When last we left our investigative heroine, she went into some hidden tunnels and found herself facing Killer Croc.

Hopefully he's not in one of his cannibal phases )

When last we left our ghost-hunting heroine, she and her crack commando squad classmates broke into the haunted North Hall, where a hand grabbed Olive's arm.

To whom--or what--could the hand belong?? )

Eh, whatever. Here's something one of my pals from tumblr, the esteemed Juliandroid, drew in her spare time. I contributed the original idea... by which I mean I stole the general thrust behind this, combined it with my sudden and inexplicable desire to see a chubby Joker, and added a few more suggestions, all of which Miss Droid incorporated.

Then I commended mirth, because a villain hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry... )

Show your support for the artist at her DeviantArt!

At the cost of being both predictable and cheating the theme a bit, I'm going to go with a piece that already has my five picks banded together. Granted, the artist probably didn't think of them as a team when he drew it, but the idea popped into my head as soon as I first saw the piece, and now it won't leave.

You probably know what inmates will be behind the cut. Can you guess which? )

Later this month, I hope to post some sweet Joker-y goodness for the current theme. However, for now, we'll have to make do with the issues I have on hand. Like this one: Batman #471.

Waylon Jones has never really been the top Bat-villain in threat level or popularity, but like just about any other character, there are always a few diamonds in the rough to be found. The one I bring to you today is one that (I believe) served as the inspiration for the BTAS episode "Sideshow"... and is, IMO, far superior to said episode.

A requiem for a killer, behind the cut! )
