The story wandering in my head telling me to write it would ideally be a Batman story.
I don't think there's any way to sell it as such, especially since it doesn't work in the current "urban legend" continuity. It takes place in the old school Batman gets plaques from the mayor era.
Mind you, I think I can write it without using any trademarks, use words to establish the things that need to in an alternative world, with an alternative hero.
But I don't wanna. It's not a story I want to spend time with.
So, why won't it go away?
