The Dark Knight Rises…in Brazil?

Evil doers and ne’er-do-well beware – the Dark Knight himself is patrolling the streets of Brazil.

No, the caped crusader hasn’t left foggy Gotham City for the sunny sands of Sao Paolo, but the residents of Taubaté, Brazil have a new ally in the face of increased crime and violence. The mayor of Taubaté, faced with such problems, has recruited a former soldier to patrol the streets – dressed as the Batman.

Batman Brasil will be on patrol duty in the cities most dangerous neighborhoods, helping to fight increased murder and drug trafficking rates. While most police operations are still in the hands of the regular police (no Bat signals here), Batman will act as a liasion between citizens and law enforcement in hopes to foster peace and lower crime rates.

About Ryan Almodovar

Ryan Almodovar was born in Queens, NY, but was transplanted to Lancaster, PA – the heart of Amish country, at an early age. Growing up in a small city that is completely surrounded by fields has let him develop many interests, including jazz music, songwriting, short stories, and exploring the vast farmlands – simply because there wasn’t too much else to do there. A love of writing, thinking outside the box, and his Puerto Rican culture led him to a bachelor’s degree in Economics with a minor in Spanish from the Millersville University of Pennsylvania. Currently, Ryan is a mild-mannered banker during the day, and though he may claim to fight crime at night, you are most likely to find him relaxing by playing guitar, watching baseball games, or working on a novel that never seems to get finished. You can read more of Ryan’s work at his blog, Awkward and Dangerous.
