I’ve read the damned thing two dozen times, easily, and the parallel got right past me.
Note particularly the observation:
“The passage concludes with the media blaming Batman for inspiring the shooting, though he is not involved in the incident at all.”
However, we all need to remember one thing: the Batman would not take a life. Ever. No matter the cost.
Now watch the “million mommies”, gun nuts, general wackaloons, and the mainstream media have a field day.

Fred Jackson, news director for the AFA:
“[L]ike the Batman murders, our nation’s 55-plus million abortion murders post Roe v. Wade are not the cause of our culture of death; they are merely a symptom. Ultimately, the cause stems from something much less complicated. We as a nation – as a people – have turned our backs on God.”
“The AFA Journal has been dealing with denominations that no longer believe in the God of the Bible, they no longer believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation, they teach that God is OK with homosexuality, this is just increasing more and more. It is mankind shaking its fist at the authority of God. We are seeing his judgment. You know, some people talk about ‘God’s judgment must be just around the corner,’ we are seeing it.”
“[Judges] said we cannot permit potential mass murderers like James Holmes to read or meditate on God’s prohibition ‘Thou shall not murder’ as a part of their education, because someone like him just might be inclined to ‘venerate and obey’ it and not go on a midnight shooting rampage leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake.”
