    I’ve been reading a very interesting book lately which actually shows a connection between Batman and the Ancient Mayan religion. Has anyone heard anything about this?

    This says "NO".

    I don’t know. I don’t always trust ABC. This book I’m reading is extensive. It talks about how Chilam Balam would take on various roles while serving the Empire, one of them being called the BAT, in which he would serve as a counterpoint to Xipe Totec.

    I know they said the links to Batman and the Mayans were debunked. But I’ve been reading some pretty interesting material that goes way more into it. Has anyone else really researched this or know anything about it?

    I don't think Batman is Mayan.

    It’s not Batman per se, but a persona Chilam Balam would take on to counterbalance a Pale Man (Xipe Totec) when performing the Rites of Tlaloc…

    Maybe DC needs to add a disclaimer that “These characters are not intended to represent any historical or theological figures, living, dead, or undead. Any resemblance to pagan gods is purely coincidental.”

    But I honestly think it’s more fun. All of the Ancient Mythologies amalgamated all of the others into themselves. Wouldn’t it be great if DC just claimed it and ran with it?
