I can't believe it took so long:
In Holy Terror, Batman!, a new graphic novel by the Batman writer Frank Miller, the Caped Crusader will take on al-Qa'eda when his home town, Gotham City, which is based on New York, is attacked by terrorists (Telegraph).
This is a return to the World War II model of having our superheroes fight our real life enemies. Having the genius behind “The Dark Knight Returns“ write this book is a smart move, and it will help focus attention back on our real enemies. At least in WWII we didn't get bogged down in a ware in South America. For the moment, I am excited about this...
