Hobo Batman by sketcheronline Hobo Batman by sketcheronline
Hey everyone,
As you well know, I love to redesign characters. This is one of my all time faves. Batman. I redesigned him to be a hobo. I wanted to show that he is a hero regardless of his money and gadgets. He does what he can with what he finds in the dumps. I am working on more like this. Aquaman is next. The others are coming in the next SKETCHER issue. Stay tuned.

Another use of cans (the stiff, sealed, tin lined steel kind) is for a hobo stove. As for why regular batman doesn't carry one around? I don't know, that guy is usually prepared for anything.

So his base is the Bat-Dumpster?

It would just be referred to as The Cave. But it would be a regular dumpster or an abandoned warehouse.

Cool as it is I have one criticism; the wrap on his head really doesn't have a 'bat' shape to it and I think it'd be possible for a homeless or poor person to replicate that look with some creativity.

You know what would replace his batarangs? Crushed cans they fly very well but not the same penetration, oh well I hope batman has a hammer.

I have to both agree and disagree with some folks here. It does look cool, but it looks to me like a stage in which Bruce did not have a bat suit at hand and had to make one with whatever material he had at hand, and still, HIS CHARACTER REAMINS UNCHANGED, FOR EVEN IN RAGS OR ARMOR, THE BATMAN WAS, IS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE... JUSTICE.
KEEP MAKING MORE AND BETTER EVERY TIME!!!

...That is EXACTLY what the artist was trying to say. Is he in leftover clothing? Yes. Is his mask a cloth around his head? Yes. Is it abundantly clear that he can't even afford shaving cream? Does he still look like a grim and powerful crusader for Justice, able to strike fear into the hearts of criminals? Oh, hell yes.

"Cool" is an understatement.

Batman has always been known about his cutting edge tools and being well-read and disciplined and having a mind of a locksmith.

But personally, that's not what makes Bruce Wayne dynamic and terrifying.

To those who will say "no", yes, he dose have a superpower, and it can be summoned in one word---"Obsession"

Most superheros are born with God given or cosmic gifts that can launch them far into the heroic status alone.

Bruce Wayne is a "master of all martial arts", A "detective", a "scientist", "criminal psychologist", "Business Man", "Playboy",and can undoubtedly quote Sun Tzu from memory. And he got all this overload of skills from...what, cosmic radiation, X-gene, a galaxy far far away...from the death of two parents?

Lets face it, you give Bruce Wayne the Green Lanterns Ring, there would be no need for Chuck Norris.

Bruce Wayne is a man who is stubborn to the brink of madness, and if he just takes one more step, he would be in Arkham with the rest of them. Fact.

Money never made him, it was a criminal, who murdered the wrong family, and spared the wrong child.

It would not be a cool reinvention. It would be a great revelation for people who never looked at Bruce Wayne at this light...or just never though about enough.

I think I've said enough.

That gives me an idea for a comic of Batman with some random dead green lantern's ring firing Chuck Norris.

If I could favorite comments I would do it to yours right now.
