Batman Comic Postponed Because It Features A Teacher Pointing Gun At Students

Batman comic postponed for school shooting scene

DC Entertainment decided to postpone the release of Batman Incorporated #3 in wake of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado and now we know why.

An email to comic book retailers said the issue "contains content that may be perceived as insensitive in light of recent events."

It turns out that the insensitive content includes a teacher pulling a gun on a classroom full of kids.

Yikes! That probably wouldn't have went over well. In fact, we're sure critics would have had a field day had the issue hit the shelf as planned.

We're glad that the company had the sense to delay the release by a month, but wonder if the shocking content will have the public asking for a permanent delay.

Do U think that DC should edit the comic, much like Warner Bros. is reshooting Gangster Squad?

    DC should not edot the content. Why give into this James Holmes guy? People get shot everyday. People get raped everyday. People have terrible things happen to them everyday. But this one incident is now forcing people to censor their work. It was terrible what happened but it isn't insensitive to keep Gangster Squad and this comic the way they are. If people are going to be offended by it they just dont have to read or watch it.

    I am really fucking sick and tired of this political correctness. It is WAY the fuck out of control, and we all need to do something about it. You're part of the problem Perez; you are an asshole bully who supports every liberal idea out there so long as it agrees with your own agenda. What you don't like, you mercilessly beat on, all the while proclaiming equal rights for all. But tick tock, ass clown. Your day is coming.

    The Batman comics have been very shockingly violent lately. Just last month, there was an article about the Joker returning to the comics, and that it was going to be extremely violent. I'm not opposed to violent Batman comics, but they need to start putting better age restrictions on some of these comics. Having a comic that features the Joker having has face cut off with a knife… and him getting off on the pain of it… is a bit much for even this bat-fan to handle.

    I was in high school during the early 1950's. I remember having a student debate, "Do comic books cause juvenile delinquency?" Later on, Tina Turner sang "We don't need another hero!" We never came to a conclusion over the influence of comic books on kids, but instead have made it easy for everyone to buy bigger and better guns and made it necessary to shoot first and ask the rhetorical questions later. All the hate and intolerance comes from the Bible and the Koran teachings, not comic books.

    I consider myself a liberal, but if there is anything about liberals that drive me insane is all this PC stuff. I understand not wanting truly hateful comments being made, but leave art alone. TV, Movies, books, comics and other art forms shouldn't be edited. I know what happened in Colorado was a terrible tragedy, but we shouldn't be editing everything for it.
