One of the few superheroes who needs no introduction at all is Batman and many of the fans around the globe wonder does he smile, does he ever laugh?
People often think he never laughs. The reason for this judgment is his gritty character and devastating back story. This is also due to him taking a lot of strain and never allowing himself to relax.
His origin is one of the saddest moments in comics and maybe he never smiles because he watched his parents get murdered. The Cape Crusader has a dark soul with pain, anger, and grief. Even the world’s greatest detective misses his parents and needs some family time.
The signature Batsmirk can be considered as a smile but it only happens when someone is about to get his ass kicked by Batman. A Smirk is a half-smile with smugness.
It is one of The New 52 ongoing series published after Flashpoint. In comics, Batman is seen laughing when he stops a gang of thieves.
