Incel Batman

Every generation gets The Batman it deserves.

40s Batman was a hardboiled PI.

60s Batman was a hipster for the hippy beats.

80s Batman was a city slicker.

And 00s Batman was literally the American Psycho.

Now in the 2020s the archetype of The Batman has reached its darkest manifestation

literally…did this movie have any lights on set!?

and metaphorically

because today’s Batman is…


…he’s an Incel.
