Cartoon super hero Batman is all set to wage war againstOsama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda terrror network , according to his creator Frank Miller.

In Holy Terror, Batman!, a new graphic novel , the Caped Crusader will take on Al-Qaeda when his home town, Gotham City, which is based on New York, is attacked by terrorists.

"It is, not to put too fine a point on it, a piece of propaganda - Batman kicks Al-Qaeda's ass. It just seems silly to chase around the Riddler when you've got al-Qaeda out there," Miller was quoted by the Telegraph, as saying.

"Superman punched out Hitler. So did Captain America. That's one of the things they're there for. It's an explosion from my gut reaction of what's happening now, a reminder to people who seem to have forgotten who we're up against," he added.

However the publication date of Holy Terror, Batman! has not yet been decided.
