You know, if you ignore the lack of costumes, gadgets, or that one happens to be a psychotic murderer.


Dexter totally has gadgets. He has his kit along with the lockpicks.

He has a costume. That green long sleeve shirt with the black gloves that he always wears.

And Batman is just as psychotic. No one else on the planet would let the Joker live after everything he's done. What's the Joker's body count by now? 5 figures? That's psychotic.

And you fail. :P :twisted:

They're both bat-themed and wear capes, ya know.


Now you're thinking. Not very well, but you're thinking.

I see that we have different definitions of 'good'.

Let's see, but is Batman a psychotic murderer? Hmmm, nope.

You fail at analogies.

I love the 60's Batman show, it's perfect for what it is.

Dexter really needs a cape, and to hang out with a child in green underwear before he's Batman.

Way to take the joke literal.

Can we open a special needs subforum, where jsalwen can open similar threads like, 'Is Alf the Closest We'll Come to a Good Superman Show? They're both aliens, ya know."

No, but he's psychotic.

I didn't say it was exact.

Let me ask you a question.

Do you see any parallels between Zorro and Batman?

But how could that be? One uses a sword and whip and doesn't really have gadgets. :roll:

Dexter totally has parallels to Batman. The 'killer' is the true Dexter but no one sees that, just like Bruce Wayne is the facade and Batman is the real guy, but no one really sees that either.

They were both formed by traumatic incidents of their past regarding their parents.

They both hide who they truly are with a secret identity where they feign normalcy.

They are both detectives.

They are both highly capable, exceedingly smart, and badass.

Expand your mind...

Or we could start the obvious subforum, where you get to talk about Hyperion being a copy of Superman endlessly. I'm sure you'll have a blast.

Wut? You suck at analogies, and making disparaging comments that are in some way related to the topic at hand.

May I ask why you care so much?

I make a thread meant in fun that compares Dexter to Batman.

You enter the thread and act like a complete ass. You don't see the fun in it? That's fine. Get the fuck out and don't let the door hit you.

Do you just have to be right?

I know there are differences between Dexter and Batman. That's obvious. That's why it's fun to look for the similarities. :roll:

Dexter is a whole lot closer to Bats than those other shows.

And I thought it would be an interesting mental exercise to look at the similarities. Surprise surprise that I run into a bunch of Batman "authorities" here...


It's a comic book forum you dummy... :roll:
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"
