No, not that. Not what you think. Minds out of the gutter.

io9 has managed to find a new method to deal with their criminal element.

Someone that defy common sense and most laws of reality.

Someone to take back the night.

More from the article behind the cut.

From the article:

"Unbeknownst to DC Comics, a new sequel to The Dark Knight Returns is unfolding in the Brazilian city of Taubaté. Police have recruited 50-year-old military retiree and local Batman impersonator André Luiz Pinheiro to patrol crime-ridden neighborhoods.

And unlike other fictional superheroes who have made the jump to the corporeal realm — such as the Washington Deadpool — the gutsy Taubaté Batman will be on the beat in dangerous neighborhoods. According to the Brazilian news site O Vale, Pinheiro will hopefully become an approachable presence in these troubled communities and act as a recognizable beacon for lost children."

A grown man with military training walking around an actual crime ridden neighborhood, fighting crime and reconnecting with the citizens.

In full Batman costume.

I shit you not.

I am standing up and applauding this man and the sheer balls/guts it takes to bear the Mantle of the Bat, and yet sad that a community has become so desperate the Bat-signal has to be used.

Oh, and the article also has more super-hero love.

Like this gem.

Which, of course, leads you to this crack.

For legality, a moment of longing:

I didn't know Batman and Superman starred in West Side Story.
Congratulations Mr. Pinheiro, you are living the dream of an entire gender and some more beside.

In what kind of situations would he see himself in? The thing is he's not very young, even though he has military training. How well-equipped is he? Is the suit at least bullet-proof? How would he be able to deal with a sizable armed gang? And will he have at least some squad prepared to help him should he need to?

Seriously, as much as it sounds awesome, I can't help but imagine it'll end in tears.

Aww. My first thought was he was finding all the orphaned children and starting a Robin army.

When they make the Robin costume more glittery, and it's STILL not the campest costume on stage, the world has gone loopy.

(Stick thin Batman is ALL kinds of freaking me out though)
