There are Resident Evil fans, and then there’s TheBatMan.
That’s the name perhaps the biggest Resident Evil fan in the world goes by online.
I’ve spent the last few weeks lurking in a Discord called The Resident Evil Podcast, a channel dedicated to discussion of Resident Evil lore. It is a vibrant community, packed with debate about Capcom’s sprawling horror series. The people in it really, really care about Resident Evil, and co-founder TheBatMan is revered. Every now and then you see posts from people saying, well, let’s wait and see what TheBatMan has to say about that.
