And to round out this 4 part series on geek movies of the year, the trailer to Batman Begins was just released this past week.

Batman Begins

Batman has always been my favorite superhero; mainly because he’s not really a superhero. He’s got no superpowers, just the dogged determination to make sure that he’s the absolute best at what he does. He’s also been interesting because of the iconic heroes (Superman, Batman, Spiderman) he’s the one with the loosest moral code. He’s clearly a good guy, but he sometimes acts pretty bad. He’s also damaged, but holds himself together enough to do the right things. All in all, very different from the idealized boy scout that is Superman.

I suppose I just like my heroes with a side of dark.

I aggree, Batman isn’t some flying freak, he’s a paragon of discipline and determination.

It reminds me of a poster I got free from some Comic Mail-order company. I can’t remember the name of the hero but the tag line read something like “How does an ordinary man fight a bunch of Superheros? With a Big Gun”

Does anyone know who that was? I’d love to get another copy of that poster.

I have always been a big “Bat-Fan” and after the new movie was released it made me feel proud that my hero is Batman, the story and the reality brought to the movie just took my breath away.
