"You must want to enough. Enough to take all the rejections, enough to pay the price of disappointment and discouragement while you are learning. Like any other artist you must learn your craft—then you can add all the genius you like."
Phyllis A. Whitney
You knew this was going to happen. There'll be a Commander (John) Shepard post too. Like I said, I'm dating my Xbox, and it's been awfully good to me. As a result, I'm basing this post off the Arkham games' version of Batman, cuz....*fans self*.
There's a lot to love about a billionaire philanthropist who fights crime at night. There's even more to love about his somewhat questionable mental state, which begs the question of "Who's the real Bruce Wayne?" Is it said billionaire philanthropist or is it the guy who kicks ass and solves crimes? 'Tis a slippery slope, and that only adds to the allure of the Bat. At least for me. I like 'em a little crazy.
Aggression issues aside, one of the best parts of Bruce is his unwavering sense of justice and his by-any-non-lethal-means-necessary approach, which compliments his integrity. However, this doesn't mean he's not willing and able to beat the bejeezus out of some thugs. He just won't kill them. On purpose.
Also, he's man enough to let people help him (Oracle, Alfred, Robin, Nightwing, etc.). Occasionally, even Catwoman or Mr. Freeze will lend a hand.
Batman is one of the best anti-heroes ever. Better than Punisher, better than Kratos (that's right, I typed it), and the only reason I deal with DC Comics.
