SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singaporean man with an unusual superhero-like name turned out to be a villain who consumed drugs and stole from his brother.

Batman bin Suparman, which means Batman son of Suparman in the Malay language, was jailed on Monday for two years and nine months for various offences including stealing his brother's automated teller machine card to make withdrawals, media reported.

The 23-year-old unemployed man had also broken into the office of a firm in western Singapore to steal money and taken heroin.

Batman, who has his own fan club on Facebook, became a social media sensation after an image of his identity card with his unusual name was circulated online.

The euphonious appelation of “Batman” is of course filled with war on women and gender hate. It obviously should be “Batperson”. A rodent like humanoid with sinister leathery wings for flight solely in the moonless dark of night.
And of course “Batperson” would be the son of “Superperson”. Superperson was the “Person of steel” who engaged with a beastalic enthusiasm with the sexual education of flying rodents, bats. Hence, potential son of “Superperson” , i.e. “Batperson.”
Now of course the voices of sexual orientation and their revelation of Gender identity are involved here as well and “Superperson” could well be a male trapped in a female body but through surgical mutilations and sexual organ tranplants became capable of fathering a potential semi-humanoid child from bats. A winged simian if you will.
It is clear that the people speaking the Malay language are still in a barbaric uncivilized state, as those of us in the United States can easily ascertain. For we are aware of the cutting edge forefront of these medical advancements, bats and abolition of crimes against Nature so freed humanoids can enter the Brave New World of freedom of choice in all things.
