The HuffPo'ers on the Batman Anti-Terrorism Plot
A lot of them catch the mistake in the Huffpo headline (Miller may be a creator who worked on Batman, but the creators of Batman were Bill Finger and Bob Kane). But check out some of the goofier comments:But whatever his politics were 20 years ago, ever since 9/11 he has turned into a government-drivel supporting calcified-brained "patriot". I've read the interviews. That's why he never will be writing a book in which Batman (who I would say is a pretty good detective character) investigates 9/11. Miller has swallowed the anaesthetic on this one.
Indeed, this "Why doesn't Batman investigate what really
happened on 9/11" is a common theme:I would bet that Miller will give an even handed portrayal to the Muslim community, however I don't expect him to challenge the assertion that Al-Quada was behind 911.
Israel comes in for some pro-forma bashing as well:They should make a Batman movie about the attack on the USS Liberty.
Too bad that Bats isn't taking on the Mossad as well. That would pretty much wipe out a lot of the terrorism in the world.
Some of them can't disguise their lack of support for the troops:Batman is a fine metaphor for the cowardly act of flying in a black undetectable aircraft at 40,000 feet and dropping bombs on women and kids.
