Hal's Not The Only One

Over at her site, "The Hoosier Journal of Inanity", Sea of Green has been having a thoroughly delightful time, showing that Hal Jordan isn't the ONLY superhero who gets hit in the head. The subject of all this head-bonking is none other than the all-powerful Batman. And I have to say, that somehow seeing Batman get clonked in the noggin gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling all over.

A warm, fuzzy, SATISFYING feeling.

Maybe that's because I'm actually pretty fond of Hal, despite the fact that I make so much fun of him. With all of his arrogance, selfishness and insensitivity, Hal is actually a reasonably nice person. Sometimes he even realizes how clueless he actually is, and makes attempts to improve things. The fact that he's getting hit in the head so often adds a touch of endearing vulnerability to him.

Batman on the other hand, is humorless, dark, all-knowing, all-seeing and practically omnipotent. He's ALWAYS prepared, ALWAYS victorious, ALWAYS the one who comes up with the brilliant solution. His arrogance makes Hal look like Mary Marvel. (er...the OLD Mary Marvel). So, there is a certain amount of joy in seeing him be rendered unconcious by a blow by a thug with a crowbar. It makes him a little more human.

So, I give you...

Batman

The fact that he's being tackled by Robin, just makes it better.

What can I say? You inspired me. I may have also swiped this one from Scipio. He has some FABULOUS ones.

Okay, I think it's time we had a battle royal to see who gets hit on the head more: Batman, Green Lantern, or Jonah Hex.

I contend that Jonah, even if he doesn't hold the record, would have the highest frequency of knockouts per appearances.

But then again it's a lot funnier when a crazy psychopath in a bat costume or a man with no fear and an intergalactic power ring gets laid low by a bar of soap or a moose-head. With them it's funny.

With Jonah, it's expected.

The really fun part with Jonah Hex, is that whenever HE gets hit over the head...and yes it IS quite frequent...he usually wakes up tied-up in some sort of fashion, and quite often shirtless.

*drool*

I know which one I prefer!

Not only is he getting hit in the head, he's getting hit in the head by a head. Meta!

Wow, you just neatly summed up the exact reason why I hate Batman in like, one or two sentences.

And why I like Hal, too. He may be a real jerk sometimes, but he's also so oblivious and well-meaning (most of the time) that you just can't help but love him anyway. It's endearing when he gets hit on the head.

Watching Bats get hit on the head, on the other hand, is just satisfying because he deserves it.
