Prince's Relationship with Comics:
Prince is a Batman fan. When Tim Burton was working on the 1989 Batman movie, there were two soundtracks created. The Score soundtrack contained Danny Elfman's musical scores. The other sound track was a musical tie-in of Prince to Batman. The Prince soundtrack is the more famous one with sounds like "Batdance" and "Party Man" are very iconic to the movie.
The logic to having Prince on The Batman soundtrack would increase exposure to both him and the movie. Prince never found the same success as he did with Purple Rain and this was one of Warner Brother's ideas to try to respark his magic.
"Gemini" would be the famous alias of Prince's at this time. Gemini was his Batman/Joker mashed up inspired character in the Batdance music video.
