How poorly does you origin have to be handled to have become a meme despite it being over 75 years old?
>>
>>77680828
Batman's is only a meme cause he bitches about his dead parents way too much.
>>
>>77680981
This. I don't think theres another superhero that bitches about their origin story as much as Bruce does.
>>
>>77681000
Clark and Kara have bitched a lot over the years about Krypton.
>>

The problem with batman's is, and as much as I do sympathize with losing your parents is, well he's hardly the only one to ever lose their parents, now is he. And most people didn't have a billion dollars to fall into.

He's past the point of sympathy and is now just kind of a whiny baby. He's supposed to be how old?

The problem is that the whole "he gets PTSD from the event and becomes as crazy as his villains" interpretation is the mainstream one. While some writers are talented enough to make that interesting, most are not so you end up with his appearances making him seem like an ill-adjusted asshole obsessing over it.
>>
>>77680981
Yeah, he should learn a thing or two from Dick about this.
Dick almost never bitches about his parents being dead.

Time to trigger Kind Storyteller. I find weird, you'd think having your whole family wiped out by the mob is cliche, but I can't really think of any other characters with such an origin.

A comedy book.
>>
>>77681178
Yeah because he's a dick
>>
>>77681166

I just don't see why it has to come up so much.

It's a fine as explanation as any but shut up. we get it.
>>
>>77682287
It is a shitty sjw book from the All new DIVERSITY line, except it was cancelled and then relaunched because Marvel is a big fucking cancer.

At least Dan Slott remember PP is not supposed to be realistic and matured him without the need of more fucking drama. How shitty has spider-man been that it took 25 years for the plot to move and under one of the worst writers? Un-fucking-canny
>>
This thread is like a word for word conversation I had in middle school while trying to seem cool to my friends.

Why wouldn't a writer bring up the driving force behind ones actions?
>>
>>77680828
Anyone have that one pic where Batman and Alfred was watching this preacher cure people, then bitches about his parents out of nowhere as to why he doesn't trust him?
>>
>>77680828
It's not that his origin is shitty. it's that EVERYONE has dead parents now. What made him unique now just makes him a crybaby
>>
>>77682354
The butthurt is real
>>
>>77681000
Checked.
>>
>>77682354
the plot moved plenty, but Quesada and that other guy who revived Aunt May before him set it back
>>
>>77681055
This. Billy Batson has it far worse, because not only did he lose his family, his uncle straight up stole his fortune he was about to inherit and kicked him to the curb. And yet you don't hear him bitching about it and being all dark and angsty, barring Nu52 anyways.
>>
>>77681178
Yeah no shit. Bruce helped give him closure and provided an avenue through which he could channel his grief at a young age so he wouldn't end up like himself.
