    30 million Dark Knight Rises. 18 The Avengers (superherohype.com)

    This article says blames Batman for the shootings. :rolleye: They'd be better off with the Howard Curse.

    With the deadly shooting in Aurora, Colo., inside a packed movie theater showing "The Dark Knight Rises," questions are being raised as to whether there is any connection between the killings and the movie's plot and the character of Batman.

    ...there are general parallels to the Colorado shooting, "The Dark Knight" and the comic book character:

    — Bruce Wayne's drive to become Batman arose from witnessing the deaths of his parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne, at the hands of small-time criminal Joe Chill, who shot and killed them after they had left a movie theater.

    — The Batman video game called "Arkham City" takes place in an abandoned movie theatre (The Monarch, outside of which Bruce Wayne's parents were killed).

    — In the third issue of DC Comics' "Batman: The Dark Knight," a gritty retooling of the Batman character that was written by Frank Miller in the 1980s, the Joker kills an entire late-night TV audience with gas.

    — In the same book, a man starts shooting up a porn theater after getting fired from his job.

    — "The Dark Knight Rises" features at least two scenes where unsuspecting people are attacked in a public venue: the stock exchange and a football stadium.

    It really is a tough call and one has to wonder if this had happened in Texas how many shots he'd have gotten off before someone popped him.
