This is a video that was passed on from my friend Aaron. He knows an artist named Jacob Drake who has created some really funny short videos. This is by far my favorite, even though I love Batman. I do consider Batman my tie for favorite comic character, tied with Wolverine. So it is really hard to watch this video without getting a little angry, but even harder to watch it and not laugh.
The basic idea is that all the other superheroes don’t particularly like Batman. Superman harps on him because he is too slow getting dressed. Wonder-Woman doesn’t like having to fly Batman around places all the time. The Flash doesn’t like Batman’s constant one liners. Basically, the Justice League thinks that Batman’s human body is just a huge inconvenience. Like the Flash says in the video, “When we, as a group, have got to go out of our way to find criminals that don’t carry no f*cking guns, so the motherf*cker doesn’t get shot, at that point it becomes a problem. Batman, if your’e watching, someone is gonna shoot you in the g*d-damn face.”
Make sure to watch through the credits. It shows Superman and The Hulk picking teams for softball.
