I am of course known for my all-round bravery and monster fighting abilities, but I'd totally run from this line up.

Another micro-meme hardening the off-my-lawn skin just a little bit more...

Looks like the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead.

I was enjoying these until I came across the one where he's not running away but running towards. "Batman Running Away From Shit" used to mean something, man.

This is our "Dylan goes electric" moment.

Yep.

He isn't faster than the Flash. Flash is catching up, and the clip loops before the Flash passes Batman and Robin, leaving them their arses.

I'm surprised that they never ran away from the boulder at the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Yes, I know, they ran away from the villagers, but it just isn't the same.

I was going to call foul on that one too until I realized (when I saw the tags) that it's actually the character Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory dressed as the Flash, who presumably Batman and Robin would be faster than. And who would probably chase them. The fact that he seems to catch them, as filthy light thief notes, is then more of a problem because one would think that even the Adam West Batman would be faster than an nonathletic physicist.

You know, it's actually surprisingly hard to beanplate something so unsubstantial.

That said, as far as memes that I don't quite get go, I like this one very much.

Is this the new thing? I ask 'cuz I'm usually quite late in becoming aware of the new thing.

Flash isn't catching up, he's repeatedly looping the globe.

Until I remembered that I was looking at a photoshopped gif, I was wondering what movie that was from, and why I had not seen it yet. I'm pretty sure such a movie would rock pretty hard.

Batman does not run away. He beats a tactical retreat to buy himself time to plan.

I think it's an acronym for 'Yet Another Wonderful 'Net-site'.

I keep mentally hearing the Naked Gun theme.

Could we possibly save the SLTumblrs for Tuesday or Thursday, like Flash Friday? Although I'm sure any meme-forcing in the FPP is unintentional, this one is only a few days old and is rather clearly an advert for its creator.

You had me at "truffle shuffle".

My favorite is this one that makes them look like they're frantically moving at a walking pace.

It seems like a perfect match for all those silly scenes where they tilted the camera sideways and pretended to climb a building.

I suppose this is evidence that the Batman's status as Superhero is again in question?

Batman running way from Batman would be the most meta.

The Paths of Glory one is unreal. That -- and that alone -- has made my day.
