Fan of Batman? I wasn't back when I was a kid. I loved Wonder Woman with her invisible plane and other neat inventions. I loved Superman also even though he didn't seem to be the sharpest dude on the block. I loved the western cowboys like Hoppalong Cassidy and Gene Autry who fought for others and for good and always won and who didn't use the four letter "f..." word in every other sentence to entertain us. But when I was older and the cool Batman made it into the movies with his neat car and cool enemies, I became a fan.
