Episode #43 – Bat-Fatigue (Or: Too Much Batman?)

Batman is unquestionably one of the most popular characters in the entire DC Universe, if not THE most popular. Ever since his creation in 1939, the character has maintained continued, uninterrupted publication, a rare occurrence in comics especially for a character over 80 years old. His enduring success has even spread beyond comics with multiple television and animation appearances and eight major hollywood films with a ninth currently in production to be released in 2022, but is there such a thing as too much Batman? Would DC be wise to tone the exposure down for Batman? What would be the effect? The panel debates whether or we’ve reached peak Bat-ness.
