A Man Named "Batman, Son of Superman" Sent to Prison. (Really.)

A few years ago, a Singaporean man named Batman bin Suparman, which means "Batman, Son of Superman" in Malay, became an internet sensation. Well, the named crusader is back. He's not fighting crime. This time, he's committing it. P

Reuters reports that Batman bin Suparman was incarcerated on Monday. He is sentenced to two years and nine months in prison for several offences, including stealing his brother's ATM card and making withdrawals totaling S$850, breaking into an office to steal money, and taking heroin.345P

In 2010, Batman bin Suparman's i.d. card hit the net and soon went viral. Website Language Log has an interesting breakdown of Batman's name.P

I found these comments on another blog, it seems there is a different pronunciation

    Batman is actually pronounced as "Baht-mahn" and not our conventional "Batman". It's there in the Arabic script.

    If anyone is wondering though, the numbers are blacked out and removed for the boy's security. Many things can be done with a number, here in Singapore.

    AIRPORT SECURITY: What's your name?

    PASSENGER: Batman.

    AS: Your real name, please.

    P: My name IS Batman.

    AS: Are you trying to be funny?! What's your surname?

    P: Superman.

    Airport security handcuffs him & puts him in a locked security facility.

    You can change your name quite easily if you want to. In the UK, you don't even need to go through any legal process, you simply announce that you wish to be known as (New Name). There is a common misunderstanding that 'Deed Poll' is required, but it isn't. That is just one way of marking the point at which your name has changed. The UK Passport Office will issue a passport in your new name if you request it – subject to the references you name confirming this to be accurate.

    Actually, there's a town in Turkey called Batman.

    As Mobylene stated above, the Jawi (Javenese in Arabic script) transliteration of 'Batman' has no long vowels, the a's in this name are short. "Buttmunn" would be closer to the phonetic meaning of the Jawi Arabic script on the ID.

    his real name is actually Baiman, not batman.
    the upper stroke on the T is photo shopped

    [(bgz) The proportional spacing would suggest otherwise. Also, the Jawi (Arabic script) would need to be photoshopped too, replacing a "ya" (two dots below) with a "ta" (two dots above). What's more, "Baiman" is no more likely of a Javanese name.]

    Actually, it's ok, Batman can mean Batma in Sanskrit, or pathma, seems alright in sanskrit, indonesian or Indian does not matter, his name is nice and fits well into history, comic or no comic it's purely incidental and many english latin words also derived from sanskrit, no worries about that, come on, move on, there are worst names….
    It's a blessing to have this name, stardom is assured.

    cheers to you boy…

      haha its real, in singapore, we all have to serve in the military for a mandatory period of 2 years.
      during my time in camp, i saw this this guy whose name tag read BATMAN, and i was like "whhhhaaaat?! did you see that?? is he playing some prank, how could his superiors allow it?"
      asking around, i was told his name was real, pronounced 'bhat-mahn bin su-par-mahn' as a previous post mentioned.
      all this was before the hype online. that was in 2007

        Actually the transliteration of SUPARMAN in Jawi/Arabic does not read the same. In Jawi the last name as written is SUFARMAN – an F instead of a P. The Jawi script is slightly different in how it denotes a P but the link in the article clearly shows one dot for FA and three for PA. In Arabic the P sound is not a standard letter but a letter borrowed from Persian (and Urdu) is used where required (pay). It is denoted by three dots below. As written the Jawi reads (phonetically): (BTMN) (BN) (SO FR MN).
