You see here batman isn't just a made up character. He is someone we most people can relate to. He was just an innocent child coming out of the theater with his parents, after seeing his favorite movie again. Bruce Wayne had it rough. Then again so do some of us. Bruce had spent a total of 18 years, a good portion of his life training for vengeance for his parents death. When Bruce came back to Gotham after his training. He came back to a broken city. Much much worse than when he was a child. He came back to try to avenge his parents. While doing so, while doing something that seemed irrational cause what does vengeance solve? Nothing my friend. After getting the shit kicked out of him several times. Bruce woke up and put aside his anger. Bruce became "The Batman." He dedicated his life to putting a stop to crime in Gotham. He became selfless. Bruce Wayne billionaire, Gothams golden child. Not only did he do great things as Bruce. He also did extraordinary things as Batman.

The moral of this is that as much as the past may or may not hurt excruciatingly. You have the ultimate choice to try to take the pain and misery take it and contort it into something truly magnificent. What fuels the fire of greatness better than terrible back story and pain? Bob Kane has changed my life. He has taught me that. People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as a man. As a man I'm flesh and blood. I can be ignored. I can be destroyed. But as a symbol ... as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting." Thank you Bob Kane and Bill Finger for creating such an extraordinary character. For teaching to turn darkess into light.
