Why You Would Mute Batman on XBox Live

Don't Try This At Home

A week ago somebody asked me if I saw any of qualities of Batman in a friend of mine, and I was honestly stumped. See, I don’t spend much time thinking about Batman in relation to people I know personally, because, honestly, Batman’s about the last person I would ever want to have a personal relationship with.

Okay, maybe not the last person: it’s not like he’s going to slit my throat, douse me with fear gas, or snap my spine, but you know what I mean. The guy has next to zero interpersonal skills and even if he does like you, even love you romantically or as a member of his family, you’re a distant second in his mind to the amorphous entity that is Gotham City.

Plus, he’s like, really bad at video games.
