It’s the finale of our special 4-part ‘What If the Batman was a Black Man’ series! In this episode we put the spotlight on the fans themselves and discuss how an African-American Batman would be received by super hero fandom. We take a trip from the 60s TV series through the Reagan 80s and Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’, all the way to the present day era of post-Christopher Nolan movies and pre-‘The Batman’ hype. Join Mad Unreal as we wrap up our exploration of this fascinating question.

Say hello to the bad guy. In part 3 of Mad Unreal’s special Batman series, we reimagine the Dark Knight’s rogues’ gallery by placing it in the context of a black Batman. Would aspects of the Joker’s “let the world burn” ideology appeal to a semi-radical Bruce Wayne? Would an African-American Batman agree to become a criminal to save the reputation of Gotham’s “white knight”? In this penultimate episode of our exclusive series, we explore the villains of Gotham City in a brand new light.
