There’s one fellow who can inflict damage to both Batman and Superman concurrently, and it’s not the Joker or Lex Luthor.

His name is Mr Eng Guan Hong.

Because earlier this year, the supervillain Foodpanda deliveryman injured Batman Suparman, the guy who might be stopped for questioning should he attempt to watch a Marvel movie.

Here’s what happened.

Batman Suparman

Batman gained fame in 2008 when someone leaked his IC image online, which became an instant meme.

No one would have batted an eye about him until 2013 when he made it in the news, this time not for his name but for his crimes: he had stolen his brother’s (I’m guessing his name is Iron Man Spidar-Man) credit card, breaking into an office and consuming heroin. He was then sentenced to two years’ imprisonment.

His name, just like any DC superhero, hasn’t popped up in people’s mind for the next six years.

But today, it’s revealed that he’s now a superhero delivering food for hungry people.

And he, just like the superheroes, has a temper and a strong urge for justice.

Batman Suparman’s Argument with Guan Hong

On 28 January this year, Guan Hong, who’s completely unrelated to a certain biscuit brand, had sent a voice message in a group chat, saying that there was a new scheme for riders, and anyone who didn’t sign up would be “bodoh“—Malay for “stupid”, but also used regularly in Singlish.

For some reason, Batman wasn’t happy with the language used: he demanded Guan Hong not to say that.

They started arguing and taking a leaf out of a 90s gangster’s handbook, they arranged to meet up to “settle”.

We’ve often waited for tomorrow for a meal with our family. But what if tomorrow never comes? Watch this and you'll understand:

At about 2:40 p.m. that same day, the duo met outside the Foodpanda office. Hong Guan has brought along a penknife that he borrowed from his manager, claiming that he needed it to adjust his e-scooter, and a motorcycle hemlet.

The moment the duo saw each other, Guan Hong hulkified and swang his helmet at Batman repeatedly. Batman blocked the strikes with his arm, and soon after, the penknife fell out.

The biscuit was faster than the bat, as he picked it up to attack the bat.

Despite several colleagues trying to stop the fight, Hong Guan managed to slash Batman’s face repeatedly, and even threw some punches at his face.

Finally, more colleagues came to pull Hong Guan away.

Batman suffered a 1cm wound across his nose bridge and a 3cm cut on the side of his face, among other injuries. He might be permanently scarred from the attacks.

Attacked Because Batman Was “Annoying”

According to Hong Guan’s lawyer, he had attacked Batman because Batman was being “annoying”,

Of course, that didn’t go well in court; Hong Guan was sentenced to 2.5 years’ imprisonment and six strokes of the cane for voluntarily causing hurt.

It was also mentioned that back in 2014, he was charged for a similar offence and was jailed for two years with six strokes of the cane as well.

That’s one angry supervillain out there.

Maybe Batman really did save the world by indirectly influencing the supervillain back to jail #justsaying
