Bartman Zombie Terminator
The Simpsons TV Show
The Simpsons are well known American cartoon series which tells, in a satiric way, the story about one typical American mid class family. Main characters are, the head of the family Homer, his wife Marge and children Bart, Lisa and Maggie. The series was produced by Fox Television and is airing since 1989. Bart is an obnoxious ten year old who is constantly devising mischief. He is the teenage rebel with no regard to any authority. In the nineties he experiences an absolute success compared to other characters in the show. This period called 'Bartmania' produced the famous single 'Do the Bartman'. And because of that it totally makes sense to make Bart the main hero of this game.
Batman in Springfield?
While I was searching for the connection between Batman and an imaginary city of Springfield I came across an interesting project. It is Springfield Punx and its author is Dan from Canada. His idea was to show how some of famous characters and superheroes would look like if they were living in Springfield. Just what I needed.
Here is the vision of Flashpoint Batman, Thomas Wayne instead of Bruce Wayne:
And this is how Batman from Batman Arkham video gaming series is shown in Simpsons style:
And this is how Joker from Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins looks like:
More about Batman in The Simpsons
On Simpsons wiki site, on page http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Batman there are interesting facts about Batman. Batman is mentioned in at least 10 episodes: 'Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire', 'Mr Plow', Bart The Fink'... It is also known that Bartman at the beginning of the show writes the sentence on the blackboard - 'Batman is nothing without his utility belt!'. In the nineties even the series of comics about Bartman came out. Bartman is Bart's alter-ego, it is how Bart imagines Batman. In Bartman comics he wears a cape, a mask and plays avenger who is fighting against various criminals all over town. He can fly and climb walls. Basically this is the parody on DC's superhero Batman.
