With all the elaborate – and totally abnormal – happenings within the various storylines of Marvel and DC, it’s basically guaranteed that taking some lines out of context is sure to make them sound completely bonkers.
However, there are lines that stand out among others – both for still being totally weird in context, and for being unforgettably, undeniably weird.
A lot of this can be attributed to somewhat outdated language, as naturally the kind of things that are acceptable to say now and then differ massively. However, that’s not exclusively the case, as there’s also a vast portion of equally weird and wild stuff made within the worryingly recent past that's sure to raise a few eyebrows.
10. "Batman Kills Babies."
Although it’s not going to
win any awards for most surprising comic book sentence, the concept of Mister
Miracle subtly trying to convince people that Batman is a child murderer in his
free time is both vaguely disturbing and absolutely hilarious.
It’s something about the
absolute seriousness that he delivers the line with that makes it so bizarrely
funny. The statement is obviously untrue (depending on how you perceive the deaths of his sidekicks), yet it’s
also so honestly spoken that you almost believe Mister Miracle genuinely thinks
the Dark Knight has some equally dark secret hobbies.
It is also unclear if he’s
talking to his friend – the tastefully named Funky Flashman – or his actual
infant son, which would make the whole thing even funnier. Warning your infant
son of life’s dangers? Crucial. Weaning him off Batman at an early age? Perhaps less so.
