According to the Associated Press, three schools in the north Phoenix, AZ suburb of Cave Creek had to go on lockdown yesterday when a student reported seeing Batman run across the school yard, jumping a fence, and disappearing into the desert. Freakin’ Batman!

The student described the person as 6 feet 3 inches tall and possibly male.

“We’re assuming it was male, although they did have a mask on,” Clark said.

Officers combed the desert around the middle school. A nearby elementary school and high school also were on lockdown as officers sought the caped crusader.

The officers were unable to find the caped crusader. Well duh, he’s Batman. If the GCPD haven’t been able to take Batman down after 68 years, then I have serious doubts Phoenix police would be able to nab the Dark Knight in a few hours.

    Nanananananananananaaa… STALKERRRRR!

    I don’t think anyone dressed as Batman should be allowed to be near children… I also wonder if the kid made the whole thing up.

    “Uh… what? Pop quiz? Oh, SURE, I’m read– HEY, LOOK, BATMAN!!!!”

  2. Maybe it’s a publicity stunt put on by DC in an attempt to increase readership?!?

    I’m looking forward to more sightings . . . especially Flash . . . or maybe Jonah Hex . . . or what about Plastic Man.

    Plastic Man, heck… Power Girl, Big Barda, Huntress and the red girl from the otherwise unsalvageble “The Next” can come to MY school. :)
