That's young Bruce Wayne, standing over the bodies of his dead parents. Tasked with giving the grieving orphan something to console him, I went with irony.

Inspired by the opening to Game Informer's review of Scribblenauts: Unmasked, which I only glanced at briefly as to not color my own upcoming analysis, I took a break from working through the story (read: making everyone fight the Green Lantern Corps) to step into the shoes of baby Batman, one of several origin stories unlockable in the game.

I wish the choices I made in these vignettes colored the heroes as they appear in the game's present, but sadly no — he's still Batman, and not even drawing his parents back into existence can ease his tortured soul.

Look for more on Scribblenauts: Unmasked soon.


In the meantime, what would you give Bruce Wayne to make him stop crying over his origin story?
