​If Batman Were Broke

 If Batman Were Broke

The Dark Knight's been through a lot of wild variations through the years. Pilgrim. Rainbow. Drug addict. But a new photo project from Argentina re-imagines Bruce Wayne without his most important special ability: a bottomless wallet. Can you still strike fear into criminals with a garbage bag cape, a fanny pack and a pair of Speedos?

Neatorama points at a gallery of images — created by creative collective M.A.F.I.A. — depicting a Batman who lives in a poverty that's light-years away from Wayne Manor. The long ears on the makeshift Bat-cowl recall the original Bob Kane version of the Caped Crusader but the fancy gadgets and vehicles are all gone. This broke Batman leads to all kinds of questions, for me. Is he depressed? Happy? Showered? Whether he is any of those things or not, this Batman is fearsome in a totally different kind of way.

    This reminds me of "Sir Digby Chicken Caesar".

      DUN DA DUN DA DUNDADADADADADUD DA DAAAAAAA... On a lonely planet spinning its way toward damnation amid the fear and despair of a broken human race, who is left to fight for all that is good and pure and gets you smashed for under a fiver? Yes, it's the surprising adventures of me, Sir Digby Chicken-Caesar!

        GINGER QUICK! :) I would watch a TV series about this.

    Im no criminal, but that is striking fear right into my heart...
