Superheroes are so dark nowadays. You can't make a movie or a TV show about a superhero without it being gritty and moody. If Bryan Singer made a movie about Krypto the superdog he would have a tragic back story in which his mother was three-legged bitch that was run over in front of him by General Zod's black Escalade or something. Take this video in which an irate Batman gets into a shouting match with some rando in Times Square. As a New Yorker I can tell you that the people who dress like characters in Times Square are dangerously unhinged. Why the hell else would you voluntarily hang out with tourists in Times Square dressed like Elmo? Batman yells that, "You think he gangster but he ain't no gangster! I know a gangster when I see one." It takes not one but two Spidermen to calm him down. It's enough to make you want to stop wearing Batman underwear...almost.
