Batman Takes Aim at Osama

Beware, terrorists! Batman, the Caped Crusader is targeting a villain more sinister than the Joker or Dick Cheney — Osama bin Laden.

At the WonderCon 2006 comic book convention, legendary comics writer and artist Frank Miller revealed that Batman would hunt down bin Laden and al Qaeda in his next DC Comics graphic novel. In "Holy Terror, Batman!" the Caped Crusader goes after the terror leader and his organization after Gotham City is attacked by terrorists.

Miller said his anger over both the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and subsequent acts of terror worldwide had inspired his latest work. Miller called "Holy Terror, Batman!" a "piece of propaganda" where "Batman kicks al Qaeda's ass." He said his graphic novel channeled an era in the comic-book industry when writers and artists used heroes to spread a clear message and generate patriotism.

I have the utmost confidence that an imaginary character like Batman will have more success in finding Osama Bin Laden than our miserable excuse for a president, George Bush. At least Batman will actually be looking for Osama. Mr. Bush is too busy counting his oil profits, defying the Constitution, destroying the environment, committing treason, and starting illegal wars.
