That way, no one will be able to read it and find ways to complain about its poor choices.
In celebration of Batman's 75th anniversary, DC Comics released the following timeline graphic highlighting some memorable moments in the Caped Crusader's history. Unfortunately, no one has been able to view the image due to its massive size (that's what she said!), which requires hours worth of scrolling just to view a single entry. When the image is shrunk down to fit on a web page, the text is too tiny to read anything. According to our sources, this is a feature, not a bug.
"We figured that if nobody could actually read the timeline, they couldn't get mad at all the shit we left out of it," explained evil DC Co-Publisher Dan Didio. Didio pointed out that, were fans able to read the timeline, they would discover that it neglected to add references to Cassandra Cain, the modern Batwoman, the Birds of Prey, Gotham Central, Barbara Gordon's time as Oracle, and Azrael, amongst other glaring ommissions.
"Luckily, no one will ever know," Didio added.
Unfortunately for DC, The Outhouse never gives up without a fight, so we sent Ace Reporter Zechs to Times Square to view the image on the giant video screen there so he could pick it apart in an unhinged rant. Read all about that here.
Here's the image:

DC will also release free special edition of Detective Comics #27, featuring Batman's first appearance. Read more about that here.
