    well, Bin Laden is the world's first real supervillian.

    He lives in an underground lair, plotting revenge against the world
    He has a horde of devoted followers despite not being a political leader
    He comes up with outlandish schemes that involve years of planning and hundreds of minions
    He taunts the authorities regularly though untracable video broadcasts
    He always escapes to fight another day

    So far I've been outraged at the lack of superhero involvement in the war on terror.

    If it's Frank Miller's Batman then it's a lost cause. He'll just spend six months on the plane to Afghanistan while a bunch of random women run around the place with no pants on.

    Miller's been talking about this project for years now. From some past interviews, in his mind it's basically "Batman: Year 1.5" so it'd fall between the time of YEAR ONE and that ALL-STAR THE GODDAMN BATMAN thing.

    Much more detailed article here:

    http://comics.ign.com/articles/688/688140p1.html

    Considering this is roughly 200 pages, DK2's individual books are... 80 pages (I think) each, and that all three issues of All-Star The Goddamn Batman is total up to 64 pages, the pacing probably won't feel as prolonged as waiting for a monthly comic.

    Well at least he isn't actually going over to Iraq to fight Al Qaedea. Miller seems to have good intentions in writing this, but it still seems like it's going to be kind of silly.

    You know, when Miller shit all over the Bat-franchise, and the comics fandom with DK2, I chuckled at his wry commentary. Honestly, he's just going overboard now, trying to destroy his own reputation within the Batman mythos. If this IS true (and I still hold out hope that it's an elaborate joke) then Miller is as good as done as far as I am concerned.

    Thats a realy good point you make, so basicly Bin Laden = Cobra Commander.
