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.

Welcome to Part 2 of a special Mad Unreal series where we reconstruct the life and times of Bruce Wayne by asking a fascinating question: What if Batman was African American? In Part 1 of the series we looked at Batman’s “Origins” and put them in a new context. In Part 2 we move on to the #DarkKnight’s “Emergence” and imagine a Black Batman's views on criminality, while wondering how he himself would have been viewed by #Gotham's media.
