Batman. Santa Claus. One of these two beloved characters is known for running an unethical surveillance state. He knows when you’ve been sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, and he’s making a list with plans for exactly what you’re gonna get come the day of reckoning. Ahhh! You better be good, for goodness sake!!! The other is Santa Claus.
The two are featured in a holiday graphic released on DC Comics’ Twitter account Tuesday, penciled by Jim Lee, showing Santa delivering a special Christmas gift to the Caped Crusasder…

…an armored assault vehicle!
Of course, this does bring up the obvious question: is Santa licensed to sell such advanced and dangerous weaponry? What kind of background check does he do before handing the keys over to a known psychopath who dresses up in a bat costume to engage in violent vigilantism against a rogue’s gallery of mentally ill criminals? Is anybody regulating this stuff?
Somebody should really investigate this.
