Kapow! Batman Set to Battle Bin Laden  

Kapow! Batman Set to Battle Bin Laden


The Caped Crusader will battle al Qaida in a new comic to be called Holy Terror, Batman!


Batman is set to join the war on terror - using his superpowers to take out Osama bin Laden.

The Caped Crusader will tackle the al Qaida chief and his terrorists in a new comic to be entitled Holy Terror, Batman!, according to the New York Post.

"It just seems silly to chase around The Riddler when you've got al Qaida out there,'' the legendary Batman writer and artist Frank Miller said in comments posted on entertainment site ign.com.

Speaking at a panel discussion at a San Francisco comic book convention, Miller added: "It is, not to put too fine a point on it, a piece of propaganda - Batman kicks al Qaida's ass.''

The famed DC Comics superhero will be kept busy defending Gotham City from terrorist attack in the new story, according to reports.

The idea for the comic was "an explosion from my gut reaction of what's happening now'' and "a reminder to people who seem to have forgotten who we're up against", Miller said.

Batman will join an all-star cast of superhero characters who have taken on real-life villians, Miller added.

"Superman punched out Hitler. So did Captain America. That's one of the things they're there for,'' Miller said.

A spokesman for DC Comics declined to comment to the newspaper. It is not known when the new comic will be published, the New York Post reported


Your views on this please, do you agree with making terrorists the subject of comic books? and what is the point, I see this as childish and antagonistic and not in the same vein as the muslim cartoons.

This is probably the most vivid realization of American foreign policy that I've seen. I wonder if Bin Laden will be hiding in a skull-shaped island fortress. Or perhaps in an underground base of operations...but that one's been taken. All we need is for Kim Jong Il to start flying in a jet that never lands and the Palestinians to have blinding, acid spit and we're pretty much in the mind of a Neo-Con.

No, but Bin Laden does. How else can a powerful man with a severe kidney condition keep from being found by the whole of the American military for over 10 years?

Unless...no, that's stupid.

I regret it so much that Goebbels did not draw cartoons. They could have been phenomenal!

You'd have thought somebody would've invented a radar that picked up dialysis machines by now.

Thanks to the Patriot Act and my leftist leanings, there's now a CIA agent in an office slapping his forehead and saying "of course!"

Sadly, I think you are correct.

Thanks to Woolworths & my rightest leanings, I can guarantee that, that CIA agent is a Jew and he'll keep that notion on hold until it suits him.

A few years ago, Bin Laden was located by British signals intelligence in the Afghan caves of Tora Bora. British elite SAS and SBS commandos were about 20 minutes behind Bin Laden but they were withdrawn to allow US troops in for the kill. By the time the Yanks arrived some several hours later he'd fucked off.

I think we all get that feeling “what can I do to help the human race” then you probably like me say fuck it theirs something on the TV - JamieSim
