Conor McGregor is very good at inspiring fifth generation Irish descendants to be really irritating in sports bars on fight nights.

Now, the notorious one can also say he inspired Batman.

Specifically, the fighting style used by Ben Affleck’s Batman in Batman v Superman.

The recent arrival of the Fan Expo — known casually as “Comic Con North” — to Toronto brought out all of the costumed nerd types.

It also got me thinking about the many superhero songs that exist. So I made a list of 30 of them for Huffington Post Music Canada.

There are songs about Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, The Riddler and a whole bunch more.

To read the list go here.

I Saw The Batmobile (Er, “Tumbler”) The Other Day

I saw the Batmobile the other day. Sorry, the “Tumbler” — which is a dumb name. It was at the corner of Yonge & Eglinton along with the Batcycle,  sorry “Batpod” — also a dumb name — for some promotion.

If the whole point was to get me excited for The Dark Knight Rises, well… congratulations. It worked.
