Sci-Fi Food Cultural Icon

McDonald's. Japan. Batman. 

Super Hero Fast Food Packaging Satisfies Nippon

Japan is (or was back in the '70s and '80s, anyway) famous for taking great ideas and inventions, and making them better at scalable, affordable and efficient rates.

Apparently they've done it again with this cooler than cool Batman themed packaging for Batman Burgers and Cheesy Fries.

Is it just me, or is it a sure sign that fast food is so super unhealthy that the only way the golden arches corporation can move their product is to smear it in super hero branded packages?

All the same, cool art.  

But where's Robin?  Is that used for packaging things like their famous apple pie?  or salads?
