It turns out what inspired the shooter was a priest on TV talking about satanic messages in Led Zeppelin songs -- it has nothing to do with Batman. The last panel, with the newscaster saying this was a "Batman-inspired shooting," is the punchline. The killer never mentions Batman ... just like how James Holmes never called himself the Joker.

But hold on, everyone knows Holmes dyed his hair orange to look more like ... the ... Joker?
