You're probably thinking why does Batman have a gold tooth? Let me explain...As a kid growing up in a small village called Hackney in London, it was a community with all types of different characters; some were cool and some were not! In East London during those times, if someone had a gold tooth they were seen as a bad man ('bad' as in 'good'). In today's society, a gold tooth may have different connotations but for that East London kid looking up to his peers, it was a symbol of coolness, independence and a clear message to society about not giving a shit what people thought.
