Today is Batman Day, and to mark this prestigious occasion this video focuses on a lesser known villain in the Batman universe: Man-Bat.  And while his name is somewhat silly, I would not want to run into this guy.

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Man-Bat.  He is a sympathetic character along the lines of Frankenstein's monster.  This succinct video from (upload on November 23, 2012) provides the origin of Kirk Langstrom, a man with an obsession to have the powers of a bat.

Throughout the 100+ appearances of Man-Bat, the character vaccilates between villain and victim.  And I, like Batman, pity him.

Happy Batman Day!
