    Batfan Forever


    I've always loved Batman. When I was a kid I would watch the Keaton Batman over and over until I had every line memorized.  I liked Batman because he was just a guy, a rich guy, but just a guy. He symbolized that anyone could do good, anyone could help people in need and I loved that about his character.

    Batman was a symbol of hope.  He beat up the bad guys but was also a tortured person with his own grief he was struggling with.  If only I had the money he did...

    As far as my fandom, I saw the Dark Knight trilogy movies a combined over 30 times in theaters.  Midnight premieres in costume of course.  I stood outside the Chinese Theater in LA for the Christopher Nolan ceremony and was able to meet Christian Bale and get his autograph on a poster.

    I have an entire room in my house dedicated to my Bat-collection including posters, memorabilia, the Dark Knight trailer on 35mm film, my autographed Christian Bale Poster, and lots of other odds and ends.  In my car I have Batman floor mats, stickers, and my license plate used to read "BATGUY".

    As a Youth Pastor I am able to use the character of Batman and scenes from the movies as illustrations in messages to the teenagers I work with.  They all know about my love for Batman and like to bring me little things or tag me in posts online to make sure that I see the Batman things they see.

    I'd love to be Batman!
