There are always those annoying pests which you just can't seem to get rid of. Superman has Mr Mxyzptlk. Batman has Bat-Mite. The Fantastic Four have The Impossible Man. Which one do you consider being the biggest annoyance around?
For me, I never much cared for Bat-Mite. The character doesn't quite fit into the Gothic world of the Darknight Detective. I can tolerate Mxyzptlk being a magical thorn in the butt for Supes (but geeeeez what an oddly designed little gnome he is) and I really enjoy the naive pestiness of the green Impy getting upon the nerves of one Benjamin Grimm. But Bat-Mite just does nothing for me. What about you all?
Gimme a home on the ol' prairie where I can sit in my rockin' chair reading my favorite old comic books of yesteryear!

Bat-Mite. For a superhero that was already in rapid creative freefall ay 1959, adding a silly character like Bat-Mite solidified the notion that Batman was just another "funny book", where ridiculous things just happened in stories just so pointless.
