字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント Batman has always been the pretty serious characters. But then again, we are dealing with a billionaire playboy who dresses up in spandex to fight crime…dressed as a bat. So, I guess in the stories things to get a little strange at times. Saying that, I doubt anything will prepare you for the next batch of moments from the Batman comics I’m about to unveil…If you thought bat nipples were bad, well hold on to something… So, without waiting any longer, let’s explore the 10 most shocking and outrageous moments from the Batman comics… 10. BATMAN SINGS CHRISTMAS CAROLS WITH THE POLICE Batman #219, which some consider to be the most boring comic ever created, sees Commissioner Gordon convince Batman to go carol singing with several members of the Gotham City Police Department. Amazingly, not a single crime is committed that evening in what could only be described as a miracle for Gotham city. Well there are several vignettes of people attempting to commit crimes but then deciding not to. There’s also an amazingly lucky scene where a woman is prevented from committing suicide by the conveniently timed reappearance of her soldier husband who was missing in Vietnam, all to the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Batman and the Gotham City Police Department aren’t known to be the best of friends, so it’s great to see them hanging out on this work night out. Not to mention the fact that Batman looks amazing when he sings. In fact, Batman has so much fun singing that he fails to realize the sun coming up, declaring, “It’s like the spirit of Christmas took hold on everyone.” 9. BATMAN DRESSES UP AS A RAINBOW If someone mentions their favourite bat suit, the colours will usually include palettes of black, grey and blue…But did you know that Batman has also worn pink yellow and green? In 1957’s Detective Comics #241, Robin aka Dick Grayson injures his arm while saving a little girl from runaway thieves. To prevent the crooks from connecting the injury to Robin, Batman decides that the only solution is to wear colourful eye-catching outfits. The whole episode culminates with Batman capturing the criminals while wearing a rainbow costume, providing the Dark Knight with some amusing one liners such as, “They’ll find no gold at the end of this rainbow… only prison.” It’s strange that Batman would go to such lengths in order to stop a bunch of criminals from linking Dick Grayson to Robin via a bruised arm. Then again, as Coco Chanel once said: “The best colour in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you.” 8. ZUR-EN-ARRH HANGS OUT WITH BAT-MITE In 2008, comic book legend Grant Morrison went experimental by bringing back some obscure tropes from the Silver Age in a story arc spanning Batman #676 to 681. Anyway, in the story, Batman creates a back-up personality he can unleash in case of a psychological attack on him, called the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh. The name stems from a young Bruce mishearing his father’s last words. He actually says “The sad thing is they’d probably throw someone like Zorro in Arkham.” Ok that’s kind of sentimental…But the fact that this Zur-En-Arrh persona is fuelled by crystal meth and dresses in yet another brightly coloured Batsuit made from trash is ridiculous. But as bizarre as all this is, it’s still somewhat creative and entertaining… That is until Bat-Mite shows up. Bat-Mite is an Imp similar to the Superman villain Mister Mxyzptlk. Appearing as a small childlike man in an ill-fitting costume, Bat-Mite possesses what appears to be near-infinite magical power. But unlike Mr Mxyzptlk, Bat-Mite idolizes Batman. 7. PRETTY MUCH ALL OF BATMAN: ODYSSEY After Adam West did his best to make Batman the campiest fictional character in history, legendary artist Neal Adams single-handedly turned the Dark Knight into the bad-ass masked vigilante we all know and love today. Adams eventually left DC to work on other projects, but in 2010, he returned to bring us Batman: Odyssey. So most fans were naturally excited to hear the news. But while Adams is an amazing artist, his writing skills leave much to be desired… Every issue starts off with endless exposition by a naked and hairy Bruce Wayne incoherently blabbering on about pretty much everything that has ever happened to him in no particular order. Some of these rants include a history of trains, traveling to the centre of the Earth, meeting the original Egyptian gods, meeting a cave man dressed as Batman, Batman riding dinosaurs, Batman fighting a telepathic cyclops and also saying odd things like, “such an octopus of a thing.” There’s a lot of this disjointed story telling which ends abruptly with no conclusion, while the naked Bruce Wayne in the panel keeps getting closer and closer to the reader. 6. BAT-BABY The Golden age era of Batman comics are a good bit of fun for the whole family, but even here some stories take things too far. In Batman #147, published in 1961, we witness a mad scientist’s ray gun turning Batman into a toddler who decides to continue fighting crime under the guise of Bat-Baby. Of course, Bat-Baby isn’t just any old baby. The infant retains all the intelligence and strength of adult-sized Batman, only now he is packed into a cute, pint-sized frame, fitted with black overalls and a modified cowl that snugly fits over his chubby head… Bat-Baby fighting criminals is reminiscent of those awful kid movies such as the Son of The Mask and frankly something George Lucas would indulge in. The final nail in the cringe coffin is when Batman says “Robin I never thought there’d be a time when you’d have to carry me in your arms like a baby.” 5. BATMAN WETS HIMSELF Many fans are understandably upset about Kevin Smith’s Batman comics. He introduced some childish and humiliating elements to the caped crusader’s backstory. In Batman: Year One there is a scene where the young dark knight crashes a dinner of Gotham’s corrupt and informs them that their criminal days are over. In Kevin’s hands, this famous scene gets a new twist, as Batman admits to his protégé years later that he was actually terrified during that moment. So much so, that he pissed himself. Most fans were hoping that this would end Kevin Smith’s Batman writing career, however he went on to pencil many more, including the limited series Batman: Cacophony. 4. BATMAN GETS IT ON WITH BLACK CANARY In All-Star Batman and Robin #7, Black Canary takes on a horde of criminals near the docks. But she gets overwhelmed and hides behind some crates. Luckily, Batman arrives on the scene to save her, brutally thrashing all the thugs and setting them on fire with a bottle of bleach. Not content with just that, Batman starts to beat the thugs while they are on fire while Black Canary watches on, increasingly getting turned on in the process. Batman then approaches Black Canary and they appear to have dry sex with their suits on… Pretty much everything about Frank Miller’s All-Star Batman and Robin is out of character for the Dark Knight. Throughout, he calls Robin retarded, makes the Boy Wonder eat rats, paints himself yellow so he can bully the Green Lantern and constantly refers to himself as “the goddamn Batman.” 3. BATMAN GETS BATGIRL PREGNANT If you thought the incest in Star Wars was bad, then listen to the next story. The comic book Batman Beyond 2.0 is set two years after the end of the cartoon series Batman Beyond. In the story, Batman gets Barbara Gordon a.k.a. batgirl pregnant, while she is in a relationship with Robin. What’s worse, when Batgirl tells Bruce Wayne about the pregnancy, he promises he’ll stay out of it and let Barbara break the bad news to Dick herself. He then immediately breaks that promise by going and telling Dick everything. To make matters even worse, Barbara suffers a miscarriage in the end. 2. BATMAN LAUGHS WITH THE JOKER In the Killing Joke by Alan Moore, The Joker paralyzes Barbara Gordon by shooting her through the spine, and then he kidnaps her Dad, the commissioner, and sends him through a fun house, driving him insane by drugging him and showing him the images of her, naked and bloody on the floor. But as usual, Batman saves the day. Barbara is crippled but alive, Joker is caught, and commissioner Gordon is OK. Now flash to Batman and the Joker standing in the rain, and the cops are on the way. So Joker tells Batman a joke to which Batman start laughing, slow at first, and then louder and louder. The laughter quickly becomes contagious, and the Joker and Batman are standing in the rain, laughing their asses off. What you need to realize here is that, an hour earlier, this guy that Batman is laughing with crippled one of his closest friends and tried to drive another insane. And Batman is laughing at his joke. Maniacally, even. Some believe that This was the moment that truly broke Batman. Batman is laughing because he is already gone. The Joker is laughing because he knows he won. He broke the Batman. The last few panels are ambiguous, and many fans believe that Batman kills the Joker off panel… 1. BATMAN CRIES WITH SUPERMAN OVER ALIEN TENTACLE SEX This mega-cringe adventure begins when Superman realizes that he and Batman deserve a break from all that saving-the-world nonsense they do every day, so he invites Batman over to chill at the Fortress of Solitude. The Dark Knight accepts, because dealing with stressful situations in an emotionally healthy way has always been a defining trait of Batman. Their bromance is interrupted by a meteor full of aliens, which conveniently crashes at the Fortress. The tentacle aliens feed off Batman and Superman's emotions like some kind of supercharged mdma and immediately start growing and mating with one another in what will quickly become a recurring theme for your nightmares. Our heroes just kind of awkwardly stand around, watching the copious amounts of tentacle sex happen. And then things get more weird, if that was possible. The tentacles, which were already pretty penis-like to begin with, grow their own penises. The aliens state that they need to feed on emotions to live, but rather than drain the Earth and cause destruction, they decide to let themselves die, making this the easiest, yet most psychologically scarring, victory in history. Batman and Superman beg the aliens to live and then, in a moment we'd love to erase from history, they start to cry as the tentacle aliens die.
