STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. This is the story of a southeast Asian superhero. The Singapore man's father is named Suparman. The father named him Batman so that according to local custom he would be called Batman, son of Superman - or Batman bin Suparman. We're sorry to report Batman bin Suparman has a drug problem. He was jailed on Monday for fueling that habit by stealing his brother's ATM card and generally using his powers for evil instead of good. It's MORNING EDITION.
