Batmen of All Nations @ Wizard
Pretend all you want that a French ex-convict Batman or a mustachioed Latin American impostor called Bat-Hombre never existed. But the strange truth is that many of these Batman understudies—or “Batmen of All Nations”—joined together to form a Club of Heroes in 1955’s Detective Comics #215 in all their stereotype-driven glory. Leave it to writer Grant Morrison and artist J.H. Williams III to dig up these D-list relics—and create spanking new send-ups with “Chief-Man-of-Bats” and “Wingman”—and give them a unique, if unexpected, A-list story in a three-issue arc beginning in June’s Batman #667.
