Ever have those moments when you’re getting your geek on as usual, and then something so ridiculous/inexplicable appears that you can only scratch your head and say, “What the fuck?” Yep; that’s what we thought. It happens to us all the time, so in the spirit of sharing, Girls Gone Geek is launching a new feature we like to call WTF Wednesday. Yeah, we know it’s Tuesday, but V. and I had such a giggle fit over our gallery of entries that we couldn’t contain ourselves until mid-week. For your enjoyment, we present the following:
You want cosplay? You can’t handle Batman’s cosplay, baby! Apparently feeling restricted by his mid-century black-and-gray ensemble, Bats went over the rainbow in Detective Comics #241 and got himself a Skittles-inspired wardrobe. So many moods, so little time. This cover, like many early Batman-related covers, is pure WTF genius: First, there’s Robin’s Captain Obvious routine. But what really takes it over the top is Batman’s grim determination — his commitment — to wear a different-colored costume every night. “Screw you and your primary-colored frippery, Superman! I’m bringing the hotness to the JLA, and we both know it.”
I have no idea what this issue is about, and it doesn’t matter. If loving *Hot Pink Batman is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
*I don’t care what Robin says. That ain’t red.
