Over the course of more than 70 years of comic book stories, plus dozens of animated and live action adaptations across film television and video games, Batman's secret identity has only been deduced a handful of times -- and more often than not by friends rather than foes. As pointed out by the first installment of College Humor and Front Page Films' new Badman miniseries, however, this statistic is more or less miraculous -- particularly in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins and The Dark Knight films, though it remains to be seen how many characters in The Dark Knight Rises will deduce the true nature of Batman's dual life. Contemplate Batman's eternal struggle to maintain a double life with the first Badman short after the jump.
