A few years ago, a Singaporean man named Batman bin Suparman, which means “Batman, Son of Superman” in Malay, became an internet sensation. Well, the named crusader is back. He’s not fighting crime. This time, he’s committing it.
Reuters reports that Batman bin Suparman was incarcerated on Monday. He is sentenced to two years and nine months in prison for several offences, including stealing his brother’s ATM card and making withdrawals totalling $S850 ($730), breaking into an office to steal money, and taking heroin.
In 2010, Batman bin Suparman’s ID card hit the net and soon went viral. Website Language Log has an interesting breakdown of Batman’s name.
