Clip du jour: Batman lacks superpower, sense of humor.

Posted on

The folks at College Humor achieved what Bryan Singer could not. They made Superman cool. Super-cool. Last October, they posted a hilarious cartoon of Supe meeting his harmless little Bat-bro.

Now, in a sequel, Supe goes on spring break, leaving Metropolis in Batman’s not-so capable hands. Fortunately, other Justice League allies are there to bail the Dark Knight out, but only after Wonder Woman comes to the conclusion that Batman “might just be a guy in a Bat costume.”

It’s somewhat refreshing to see the most humorless of vigilantes get slapped around a bit. Batman may be the current hero du jour but he’s also just a “little ordinary guy” outclassed by costumed superhumans. The Joker isn’t the only one laughing at Batman’s humiliation.
