When you have a dude that wears his underpants on the outside of his costume, and runs around in a cape all night...wait...let me be more specific...all superheroes do that. I'm talking about Batman. THE #Batman. #TheDarkKnight. The Caped Crus...you get it. When you have that, and it appears the comic book writers have had either a bit of writer's block, or are just plain insane, you have a good recipe going for some pretty corny Batman moments.
It doesn't get too wild these days, but back a couple decades ago, times were different, and apparently, the Batman comic book writers had a little bit different senses of humor than we do now.
Here are some of the best moments in Batman's WTF history.
1. Batman & Alien tentacle sex
I want to talk about this more, but I'm afraid I'll start bawling.
2. Batman & His Bat-thong?
It looks like #Robin is actually holding a shoe, but he mentions trophies, soooo...the other thong makes more sense, doesn't it? No idea what the backstory here is, but MAN does it sound like Batman had a good time!
3. Wait, Did Batman Just Imply...
Here we have this villain threatening our superheroes loved ones, and all of them are worrying about their women. But Batman? Nope, he's worried about Robin!
Say no more.
4. Batman & Joker's Boners
The word “boner” is enough to induce giggles from even a grown man, let alone a kid reading a #Batman comic. I guess, back in the day, a boner wasn't thought of as a dirty word like it is now. When and how the heck did that happen, I wonder...? Whoever was responsible for making it a dirty word, we thank you!
5. Batman's Pal Robin Gets Embarrassed
Batman's protege Robin and Batgirl get trapped in a safe by Crazy Quilt (that name is a WTF moment itself):
And Batman rescues them:
But who's gonna rescue Robin from his boner? The Joker?
Batman Bonus WTFs
Rainbow and Zebra Batman!!!
