God, what a wanker.

I mean, sure, it’s cool that he uses Sup and Bats instead of Achilles and the (mighty and powerful) Tortoise, but what’s with the dumb-ass conclusions? What, torture is less likely in societies that do not have a Batman? This blind denial is beneath us, and thanks to the availability of morally questionable sup literature – we can see right through it.

Besides, like Nimrod always says, if video games and the likes really had any influence on kids, we would have a whole generation of Doom players hanging together in clubs with strobing lights, listening to electronic music and popping pills.
