Batman bin Suparman of Singapore is jailed

Dark Knight Rises and Dark Knight Falls. Sad day in Singapore as news broke out that our double super-hero chose the dark side of the power.

Singaporean Batman bin Suparman became an internet celebrity thanks to her superhero-sounding name. But unlike the super-heros in his name, it seems like the 23-year-old was jailed for nearly three years (2 years 9 months exactly) on Monday for theft, breaking and entering and drug offences:

Batman bin Suparman, an unemployed 23-year-old, was arrested on August 19 after security videos showed him sneaking into a store at night on two separate occasions.

He stole a total of S$500 from the store, court documents showed. Batman also pleaded guilty to various other charges, including stealing his brother’s ATM card to make withdrawals amounting to S$650, and consuming heroin. He was sentenced to a total of 33 months in jail.

The court heard that Batman Suparman broke into SGF Billards & Marketing Singapore at Depot Road in the wee hours of the morning in August, and stole S$200. On other occasions, Batman stole the ATM cards of his elder brother Nurazman Suparman, and made withdrawals totaling S$850 (Family with cool names: Father is named Suparman and sons are Nurazman and Batman).

And it does not end here. According to Singapore press, Batman also tested positive for drug (heroin) usage.

Batman bin Suparman means "Batman son of Suparman". Not much is known about him and apparently he has been out of radar for the past 5 years. He was born in 1990 in Singapore and according to his Singapore identity card he is Javanese.
