In Real World News: Batman versus Batman

Where are you from? Oh, I'm from Batman!

Yes, mga bords, there is a place called Batman. It is is a city on the Batman River in the predominantly Kurdish southeast of Turkey.

And on November 7th, 2008, Batman Mayor Hüseyin Kalkan began looking into legal possibilities toward suing Christopher Nolan, director of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight for naming infringement and "placing the blame for a number of unsolved murders and a high female suicide rate on the psychological impact that the film's success has had on the city's inhabitants."
Huseyin Kalkan, the pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party mayor of Batman, has accused "The Dark Knight" producers of using the city's name without permission.

"There is only one Batman in the world," Kalkan said. "The American producers used the name of our city without informing us." (i love this guy!)

I was laughing my ass on a comment made by somebody in the superherohype site, who calls himself "dude" saying: "Sounds like Turkey is having some money problems. This should be a lesson to tell the people of 'Wolverine', 'Watchmen' and the city of "Captain America:The First Avenger" before they sue"

yep. That's the mayor of Batman. Maybe he'll sue Nintendo next for basing Super Mario on him. hehehe
