Beware, terrorists! The Caped Crusader is targeting a villain more sinister than the Joker – Osama bin Laden.
At the WonderCon 2006 comic-book convention in San Francisco last weekend, legendary comics writer and artist Frank Miller revealed that Batman would hunt down bin Laden and al Qaeda in his next DC Comics graphic novel.
In “Holy Terror, Batman!” the Caped Crusader goes after the terror leader and his organization after Gotham City is attacked by terrorists. Though the graphic novel’s title is a take on Robin the Boy Wonder’s catchphrase, Miller said there was nothing campy about the story.
If it wasn’t fiction, I’d predict that the libertarian caped crusader might be more successful than our cowboy boot wearing comic-in-chief. At least it appears that that Batman will be targetting the real enemy, as opposed spending most of his time creating new ones.
