Yesterday ComicsAlliance spelled out exactly why they hated “Batman: The Widening Gyre” #6 written by Kevin Smith, and I’m going to focus on just one part of it (you can read the rest there).  I like Kevin Smith, but he may be smoking just a little too much pot.  Case in point: would a sober man start every podcast talking about their fleshlight for ten minutes and write a comic in the official Canon where Batman pees himself?  Yeah, this happened:

Batman pissed himself. And he retroactively pissed himself during one of the most iconic moments of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One, according to Kevin Smith. Batman. Had a “bladder spasm.” Causing the World’s Greatest Detective to fill his tights with urine. AS MENTIONED IN AN OFFICIAL, IN-CANON DC COMIC BOOK. [ToplessRobot]

The panel in question is at the above right.  Since I’m a Kevin Smith fan and admittedly biased, I thought it would only be fair to defer to the opinion of Batman himself on this matter.  What say you, Caped Crusader?

*adjusts monocle, puffs on pipe*  Quite so.

When not writing for Uproxx, Caleb likes to volunteer at the legless cat shelter and photoshop the Babadook into all of his family photos. He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
