Are you a fan of Batman? Well, yours truly is more to a Superman fangirl, but I do find that Batman has a mysterious and dark appeal to his brooding alter-ego persona, and so, when I heard that the hero from Gotham City will be making appearance at Resorts World Genting, I knew I had to check him out.
Yes. That’s me. Standing at the Bat Call Sign in hope to see Batman. I know it’s not an emergency or anything and one should not misuse the call sign to summon Batman, but hey, he’s somewhere around in Resorts World Genting, and I really want to see him. Batman first appeared as a socialite turned crime-fighter Bruce Wayne in DETECTIVE COMICS #27 on March 30, 1939, and has stood a symbol of determination, bravery and justice to generations of fans for 80 years. Who wouldn’t want to be up close and personal with him? I sure do!
And sure enough, Batman did made an appearance. Here’s my close encounter with the mysterious hero of Gotham City at SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting. This is what happened When you are a fan of Superman but have the hots for Batman. Geez. I wonder how he really looks like underneath that mask. Stealing a glimpse at Batman wearing the half face batmask, he surely looks handsome. Just so you know, yhe cape crusader has influenced every area of modern entertainment, appearing in countless comic books, cartoons, multiple television series, video games, theme parks and experiences, toys, collectibles, apparel and lifestyle products, as well as, blockbuster animated and live-action films.To commemorate this milestone, DC has unveiled their year long global plan to honour the World’s Greatest Detective.
