AURORA, Colo. — The heavily armed gunman that massacred 12 people at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” near Denver boasted to cops that he was Batman’s arch nemesis.

The suspect — identified as James Holmes, 24, a former University of Colorado medical school student — was arrested shortly after the rampage at a movie complex about 10 miles east of Denver.
