Important new D&D Errata!
« on: April 01, 2008, 11:32:06 AM »
Wizard's has released some major revisions for the Player's Handbook and Monster Manual, today... looks like they're making some pretty important changes.

Page 108 – The Nine Alignments [Substitution]
Names like “Lawful Good” and “Chaotic Neutral” are so generic and boring. Strike all alignment names and replace accordingly:
Lawful Good: Superman
Neutral Good: Picard
Chaotic Good: Indiana
Lawful Neutral: Adama
Neutral: Unaligned (you’re still boring)
Chaotic Neutral: Jayne
Lawful Evil: Vader
Neutral Evil: Bender
Chaotic Evil: Mearls
+
New Alignment: Batman

This could actually work.

It is actually useful (aside from the chafe damage) so I wouldn't be surprised to see it start appearing.

I'm who in the what now? Was Yondalla the author of the article, and you're pointing out that a remarkable number of those are the kind of stupid things I'd put in as a joke/seriously?

Oh, and I have seen a chart with quotes and pictures (comic scans, movie/TV show screencaps etc) that show how Batman can easily qualify for any alignment. The Chaotic Evil one showed him kicking a guy who was about to eat some ice cream. For no reason.

That's the problem with a character having like 50 different writers over the course of decades.  The Batman from "Dark Knight Returns" is probably the best reason I can think of to give him his own alignment, though.
