Batman Walks Into a Bar

The world’s greatest detective knew change was inevitable. The joke was some didn’t understand.

Dark nights in Gotham sweltered. Global warming: the riddle for Batman was staying cool in leather and body armor. The Batmobile had no AC.

Truth was crime was down. Way down. Cameras were everywhere these days. Supervillains couldn’t cross a street without being posted on youtube.

Batman sighed and walked into the bar. He felt old. Maybe he should retire. Patrons smiled, said hello.

“What’ll it be?”

“I’ll have a screwdriver.” His leather boots squished.

“Don’t got one in the slick tool belt?” asked the brunette.
