Doritos Holds The Secrets Of Batman V Superman

Now We Must Turn to Doritos to Learn the Secrets of Batman v Superman

Doritos has revealed that it has its own treasure trove of BvS prequel comics, available to anyone who bys their chips - from Walmart. Revealed by Yahoo today, "Upstairs/Downstairs" by Christos Gage, Joe Bennett, Sean Parsons and Hi-Fi, will be available to fans who buy Doritos family mix multipacks at Walmart. So, American fans. The comic, which you can see some of below, focuses on Bruce Wayne being a grumpy whiner over that slacker Superman getting a big statue of himself in Metropolis.

There's something slightly hilarious and joyful in seeing Bruce be such a childish curmudgeon over a statue, but Yahoo's story does feature one interesting tidbit in how it describes the comic:

Upstairs/Downstairs examines what it means to be a superhero — whether it, as Bruce Wayne believes, requires being human, fallible, and empathetic, or whether it only requires having virtually unchecked god-like gifts.

So, in Batman v Superman, Batman dislikes Superman's heroism... because he's an alien? Is Bruce Wayne kinda space racist? Doritos comic, you reveal some strange things to us. Also, I love that Bruce believes his heroism is all about being a normal guy, someone fallible and empathetic... he also just forgets to mention that he's a "normal guy" with billions of dollars to fund himself with.

Yeah, real "man of the people", Bats.

Codes for "Upstairs/Downstairs" will be available beginning February 29.

    You and I have very different views on that... I see Bruce as having a great point myself lol.

      I agree but I also think that there is a difference between a hero and a superhero. Batman/Bruce Wayne is very much a hero but Superman is a superhero

        Well... sort of. He has a genius-level tactical intellect... but in addition to that, he has the greatest superpower of all: Fans love him, and the writers will find a way for him to defeat pretty much anyone he comes up against, to the point that they would probably contrive a way for him to defeat the One-Above-All (or whatever the DC equivalent is).

      Agreed. It's like... if you face constant challenge, you prove your strength of character, whereas if you are near-omnipotent, how will you cope if you face a real challenge? Like Sentry from Marvel - what happens if a being with near-limitless power becomes mentally unstable?

    "available to anyone who *bys* their chips"
    Come on Kotaku, you can do better than that.

    Is Bruce Wayne kinda space racist

    I'm not really an authority on comic books or anything, but if Superman is from another planet then wouldn't be be a completely different species? It's not really an issue of race when they're different species, is it? Wouldn't it be.... speciesist or something? If that's even a thing.

      Xenophonic. But nah he isnt. Hes just hesitant.
