The next batman comic is going to be every Social Justice Warrior’s wet dream

When I first read the plot of the upcoming Batman comic, I was intrigued. In “Batman: White Knight”, the roles of Super-hero and Villain will be reversed. The joker, having been cured of his insanity, is the good guy and he is fighting to rid Gotham of Vigilantism (Batman). However, he’s not facing Batman with his fists or any of his clever and convoluted schemes like the Jokers before him, he’s coming with the law – That’s right, the next Joker is a politician. Like I said, interesting plot:

The series opens with Joker finally being cured of his madness and violent behavior. Now referring to himself as Jack, the reformed villain will set about righting the many wrongs of his past and trying to make Gotham City a better place. Part of that mission will involve ridding the city of illegal vigilantes like Batman.
“We know Joker’s a genius, we know he’s relentless, and we know he can play the crowd, so why not make him a politician?” said Murphy in DC’s press release. “Why not strip away the psychosis (the thing that’s holding him back) and let him challenge Batman unimpeded? And to make it even scarier, what if he did it legally and without breaking any rules, so that Batman couldn’t stop him?”
“Seeing Gotham for the first time with clear eyes, his psychosis now cured, he starts to understand the absurdity of vigilantism and how Batman’s actions are only contributing to Gotham’s endless crime cycle,” Murphy continued. “Joker sets out to beat Batman by becoming the White Knight that Gotham really needs.”

Interesting plot, that is, until you read Sean Murphy (The writer and artist of the comic)’s Interview with Wired.

Just in case you miss all the tell-tale signs of SJW rhetoric being pushed into the comic, I’ll paint them RED for you:

My main goal was to undo the comic tropes while changing Gotham from a comic book city into a real city—a city dealing with everything from Black Lives Matter to the growing wage gap,” Murphy says. “[But] rather than write a comic about the wage gap, I gave those ideas to the Joker, who leads a kind of media war against Gotham’s elite by winning people over with his potent observations and rhetoric
It’s sexy to think crime can be stopped with a fist, but the real solution is a lot more boring than that: education, increasing wages, and building trust,” Murphy added. “The line Batman rides between ‘noble vigilante’ and ‘overzealous oppressor’ will always be shifting as our own society changes

A Batman comic about Black Lives Matter and the debunked wage gap where The Joker is using Social Justice to defeat Batman. I swear to God, if The Joker tells Batman to check his privilege, I’m going to piss my pants (Figuratively speaking, of course).

Its fitting, actually. The fact that the joker is the hero of the story because of social justice makes sense – He’s the only one stupid enough to fall for Social Justice rhetoric. This comic could unintentional turn out to be the best argument against Social Justice. The plot says The joker was cured of his insanity, but there’s nothing sane about becoming a Social Justice Warrior. If anything, he just drank more kool-aid and became even more insane.

How many white knights are really just scumbags who hide their own sins by projecting and blaming others? How many know how to use the media to promote themselves and demonize the innocent or even the good guys? The Joker may claim to be cured, but anyone with common sense knows that he isn’t, deep down. He is even going to use bull crap like the wage gap to distract from things like him being a mass murderer.

The comic is, of course, being praised Wired and other Feminist/Social Justice media for “challenging the status quo” and “daring to cover the important topics”.

Keep drinking the SJW kool-aid, DC, it worked so well for Marvel………… oh wait.
