Redditor TheIndieArmy recently shared a popularity graph for the name “Bruce.” The chart spanned 1880 to roughly 2005 and as you can see, the results make a line that looks suspiciously like Batman. Ears and all. Does it mean Batman is real? I think so.
io9 thought the coincidence was too much and looked into the validity of the graph. They found it checked out, but that the same data could be presented different ways with different results. You can read more on that in the link below.
