I'm Batman!


In Sweden Batman is called Läderlappen which translate to The Leather Patch. Originally Denmark used this name too where it could be translated as The Leather Flap (as in piece of cloth), taking it directly from the Swedish word, but it has since gone out of style. So yeah, I suppose Sweden should be saying Leather Patch but Leather Flap is so much funnier.

In Norway he was known as Lynvingen, The Lightning Wing, for a while.

How about the Batmobile..?
Leather + Flap + Mobile =
FlapLeatherMobile.

Batman: Quick! Get the FlapLeatherMobile!
Alfred: Sir, my apologies, but have you gone mad?

There is one enlightened translation for Peanuts character Woodstock; in Finnish that little bird is known as "Kaustinen" - which is again a town famous for its folk music festival - the analogy of the characters name survives the translation.

I also like the old Swedish name for Superman: Stålmannen (the man of steel). There is a good reason for that as "super" means drinking too much alcohol in Swedish. I guess it's kind of hard to take Drinkstoomuchman seriously as a hero.

I think today he should be now known as "The Spandex Flap" which i think has an even worse implication

Oh neat, SatW is back. Just in case Humon reads the comment sections, for the past day and a half, Firefox considered this site to be malicious. It didn't give me much information as to why, but I thought I would mention it.
