To all the anons who just flooded my askbox:
there is indeed a Batman comic (Batman: Reign of Terror) set during the French Revolution in which Bruce Wayne works for the Committee of Public Safety by day and dresses up like Batman in order to save aristocrats from the guillotine by night
it includes beautiful moments like these:
as well as a Scarlet Pimpernel-esque Robespierre who takes pleasure in murdering as many spoiled rich people as he can:
All-in-all, both bunniesandbeheadings and I imagine the plot line of the approaching Assassin’s Creed game will play out in a pretty similar fashion, so if you’d like to mentally prepare yourself (or you just need a good laugh), you can buy the comic for next to nothing here.
