While I would love to one day convince the powers that be to turn this website into Giant Freakin’ Batman Batman Batman, we don’t really get to talk about the Caped Crusader that much, save for the occasional reminder that we’ll never get to see the Batman Beyond movie. But rather than dwell on the negative, let’s pretend like we live in a world where Batman is one of the major players in the fight against the Big Brother-ish Skynet. Seriously, this should already be a movie, HBO animated series, and IDW comic book at this point.
The story takes place over 30 years after the 1997 nuclear attack that Terminator 2 destroyed my nightmares with. Because the Batcave and/or Batmobile don’t give a shit about nuclear fallout, a grey-bearded Bruce Wayne comes out of the darkness in his most recognizable attire and heads out into desolate battlegrounds on his way to meet John Connor at the psychedelic Skynet headquarters. At least that’s where I think he ends up. All of the long, flashing corridors sent me into seizures and I just woke up beneath my desk. Could have been the bourbon, though. Batman wins, right?
