Pinpointing four key moments in Batmans history, Brooker illuminates the struggles over Batmans meaning by shining a light on the cultural issues of the day. So, we see Batman refusing to adapt to the patriotic propaganda of the Second World War- we see him accused, in the mid-1950s, of corrupting the youth of America by appearing to promote a homosexual lifestyle to the fans of his comics- we see him become a camp, pop-culture icon through the ABC-TV series of the sixties- and we see how, in recent years, Batman has been interpreted by his fans in response to the comics and the Warner Brothers franchise of films.
