    I guess there is no Robin in the new Batman movie, I have yet to see him mentioned in the trailers.

    talk about video games causing crimes check this out in the 50's

    Batman was one of the few superhero characters to be continuously published as interest in the genre waned during the 1950s. In the story "The Mightiest Team In the World" in #76 (June 1952), Batman teams up with Superman for the first time and the pair discovers each other's secret identity.Following the success of this story, World's Finest Comics was revamped so it featured stories starring both heroes together, instead of the separate Batman and Superman features that had been running before.The team-up of the characters was "a financial success in an era when those were few and far between; this series of stories ran until the book's cancellation in 1986.
    Batman comics were among those criticized when the comic book industry came under scrutiny with the publication of psychologist Fredric Wertham's book Seduction of the Innocent in 1954. Wertham's thesis was that children imitated crimes committed in comic books, and that these works corrupt the morals of the youth. Wertham criticized Batman comics for their supposed Homosexual overtones and argued that Batman and Robin were portrayed as lovers.Wertham's criticisms raised a public outcry during the 1950s, eventually leading to the establishment of the Comics Code Auithority. The tendency towards a "sunnier Batman" in the postwar years intensified after the introduction of the Comics Code.It has also been suggested by scholars that the characters of BatWomen (in 1956) and Bat Girl (in 1961) were introduced in part to refute the allegation that Batman and Robin were gay, and the stories took on a campier, lighter feel.
