The one thing everyone knows about Batman besides his tragic origin is that he never kills. But in the Dark Knight’s early days he had no problem killing and couldn’t be bothered to save someone from dying. Now of course this was reserved for the “superstitious and cowardly lot” Batman fought on a nightly basis. Still, punching someone into a vat of acid is a little harsh, although he was a crooked business man.

The dash did the thing
sometimes you see a pun so artfully constructed you just have to stand back in awe.
