had this idea pop in my head last night for a Batman story. Kinda satirical and more of a comedy. Synopsis: Arrogant Jock a-hole becomes The Dark Night shortly before The REAL Batman appears in Gotham. He finds Bruce secret hideaway when Bruce is accidentally Knocked out. He dresses in the costume and goes out to fight crime. He mistreats his victims who if guilty are only guilty of minor petty crimes. His victims are all future Batman villains. His actions more or less sets these people up to become victims out of revenge. Story: A few nights before first becoming Batman, Bruce Wayne attends a social gathering. There he meets Dwayne Smith, a jock who is an utter d-bag. Dwayne mistreats women, talks down to others, and acts like a cock of the walk. Bruce is quickly annoyed with the man but the guy will not leave him alone. Bruce leaves and Dwayne follows him back to Wayne Manor. Bruce decides he will have some fun with Dwayne to teach him a lesson. Bruce slips off behind the house and uses a bat grapple to rappel to a Bat-Belfrey aka The Wayne Manor Attic. Dwayne discovers the hidden panel containing the bat grappels and uses one to go up to the attic. When entering he startles Bruce who jumps up and hits his head on a low beam, knocking him out. Dwayne sees Bruce in the get up and thinks it was some sort of S&M stuff Bruce planned to use on him. He is disgusted. He laments that if he had been a hot blond in skin tight leather, that would be different. "RRrawr!" Dwayne accidently activates a video diary of Bruce talking about fighting crime and his training. Dwayne hears Bruce inspirational words and dons the bat suit. While scouring the city for crime in his massive black pick up, Dwayne sees a meek little man with a ventriloquist dummy entertaining kids. The kids laugh and applaud and the meek man smiles as he says goodbye. He packs up the dummy and heads for the bus stop. Soon the man argues with the dummy in the case. The dummy berates the meek man calling him small time and pathetic. Meek Man says he like where he is because he makes kids happy. The arguing continues till the meek man confronts his inner demons and tosses the dummy aside. Dwayne leaps out of the car and begins berating the man for littering. Dwayne grabs the dummy to toss back to the man but scratches a huge gouge into one side of the dummies face when it hits a metal bus bench. Dwayne looks at the dummy then at the meek ventriloquist and grins sheepishly as he hands it back. He jumps in his car as the dummy berates the meek man. While walking near a newsstand, Dwayne sees a man reading a book of riddles and laughing at the cleaver ones. The man is happily amused. Dwayne’s inner high school bully takes over and he mocks the guys choice in books. He calls him a dork and says he needs some real interests. He head locks him over to the news stand and starts tossing him magazines on weapons, bodybuilding, and some “adult” ones too. The Riddle man’s gaze starts to wander towards the puzzle section but Dwayne smacks him and tells him to focus. He eventually leaves Riddle man and heads off into the night.. Later he meets Dr. Freis/Freeze as he is working in a lab to cure his wife. Freeze laments the loss of his wife while in the background Dwayne fiddles with the chemicals. Dwayne tells him he is lucky cause now he is free to date hot chicks and proposes they hit a strip joint. Freeze get's pissed and gives him a death glare. Dwayne just gives a big grin. Freeze tells him he'd never understand true love. As he is talking on about this Dwayne is playing with the chemicals when it begins to bubble over. Dwayne tries to fix it but it get's worse. He runs out and get's in the elevator we hear a (BOOM!) come from the lab. As Dwayne exits the building Ambulances are pulling up and he just sneaks off in the ally way. (More villian creations to come. Ideas mocking Bane at a wrestling match by calling it fake or hitting him with a chair causing him to loose, causing the creation of the Joker in some way, Poison Ivy tending a flower garden he races through and destroys to catch a mugger, etc.) End of the night comes and Dwayne returns the suit to the still KOed Bruce and leaves just as Bruce begins to stir. Bruce makes a note to Alfred that maybe the caves would make a better place to make his lair…or at least give him more head room... Notes: Dwayne resembles Bruce from the chin down. Nose up he is blond with Pauly D hair. Dwayne is a rich jock with muscles and thinks he is better than he is. He takes martial arts to kick ass, rock climbs because it is EXTREME!!, etc. He has some skills Bruce has, but to a lesser degree and for wrong reasons. thoughts? I either call it The Jerk Knight or The Douche Knight..
