UnNews:Wikileaks row: Putin rejects 'Batman and Robin' comparison

Putin is understood to be a large fan of the caped crimefighter, keeping in his possession a large collection of Batman comics, Batman film memorabilia, Batman costumes, Batman stationary, Batman lunchbox, Batman novels, Batman dinner plates, Batman hunting rifles, Batman spider web, Batman pajamas and a bedroom heavily decorated to look like the Batcave. Being relegated to the role of Robin in US descriptions of him and the Russian president, Medvedev, has caused Putin some considerable duress.
"First I am labeled the Bond villain instead of the cool ex-KGB agent" continued Putin, "and now I am shunned from the role of Batman." The prime minister took off his Batman mask as a sign of rejection, "it is the saddest of days." The leak comes days after Putin fired all of his catering staff and replaced them with an English butler named Alfred. Putin also sent a firing squad to the home of his parents.
Caricatures from the morning Russian broadsheets included a satirical drawing of Medvedev, clad in Batman gear slapping, in a rather risque fashion, the small behind of a little Robin-ised Putin, referring to the power difference between the two as well as the Batman comics from the 1950s that featured occasional bites of oblique sexual commentary.
Asked for a passing comment, Dmitry Medvedev merely said "I'm the Batman."
