The Incredibly Bootleg Origin Story of Batman
The best thing about bootleg toys is how hilarious the knockoff versions often are, and this alternate Batman origin story from the back of an unapproved Batman toy is no exception — it may even be the new definition of the rule. It basically reads like a Babelfish translation of “Batman Begins,” until about two-thirds of the way through when it takes a left turn so hard that it actually leaves DC Comics. Check it:
While Batman actually turning into Spider-Man is an interesting detour from canon, I’m most intrigued by Tougon, the chief of Mafia and Doctor Jackstraw, the abnormal drug trafficker. Who are these mysterious villains? Tell me more, crazy Batman box!
