My conversation with Akemi today:
Me: Batman is a good guy.
Akemi: He’s a bad guy.
Me: No. He’s a hero.
Akemi: Then why is he called Bad Man?
Me: He’s not called Bad Man. He’s called Batman. He named himself after the bat.
Akemi: Say his name.
Me: Batman. Not Bad Man.
Akemi: Sounds the same to me. (Then, after some thought…) But I guess it explains why his costume makes him look like a bat.

To be fair, she doesn’t have much interest in superheroes, neither “the guy with the hammer” (Thor), “the guy with the frisbee” (Captain America), or Shrek (the Hulk).
But she IS a big fan of both Mr. Freeze and Harley Quinn because their origin stories are basically love stories.
P.S. For years, she thought THIS was Dr. Who…
