Batman Takes on Autism

MAYWOOD, N.J. -- Batman has brought down criminal clowns and conniving cat burglars. Against autism, however, you would think all of his flying kicks and batarangs would be useless.
Maywood’s Joe Caramagna says you might be surprised.
He believes the comic book adventures of Batman and other superheroes can be a tool to help kids with autism. To that end, he has written a story in the new issue of DC’s “Batman 80-Page Giant 2011” that explores the relationship between comics and the disorder that affects one in 94 children in New Jersey.
