DC Comics deleted a poster for its new "Batman" comic from all its social media accounts after Chinese internet users accused the company of secretly showing support for Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters with the image.

The graphic, made to promote DC's new comic "Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child," depicted Batman throwing a Molotov cocktail with the phrase "the future is young" in the background.
