The Avengers teach Batman how to lighten up in hilarious spoof

When it comes to blockbusters, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Both made boatloads of money, but their tones are completely different. What would happen if Earth's Mightiest Heroes tried to bring the Caped Crusader to the lighter side?

The folks at College Humor produced an animated short featuring an emo Batman and some confused Avengers. The Marvel team just can't understand why Bats is so melodramatic. After they win their big battle, they want to kick back and relax. But what does Batman do after his victories? "Mostly I sit alone, in a cave, and think about my dead parents." Um, OK.

The video portrays him as a permanent wet blanket, wallowing in his Dark Knight status. Watch Batman's socially awkward introduction to the Avengers below.

Does Batman need to lighten up, or do the Avengers need to get serious?
