THIS REVELATION HAS RUINED MY LIFE
one of the main reasons I’ve never found batman a compelling hero
Someone should write a version of Batman who does things in the opposite way. A poor kid whose parents died b/c they got fucked over by the corporation they worked for. (Got fired + sued b/c they tried to reveal that the corporation was working on something dangerous, but the corporation was going to release it anyway or something. They ended up homeless + got ill + died. Batman was found by a family member [Alfred] who is living just comfortably enough to support himself + Bruce.)
Bruce works his ass off to earn scholarships to go to college, learns everything he can about the business world, so he can take corporations down from the inside.
Maybe he was big into urban exploration when he was younger - it’s how he exercised - so he can still do cool shit like scale the sides of buildings so he can sneak into places + uncover evidence against whoever his target is.
On top of this, instead of beating up mentally ill people he can try to help them instead too. (via cyanoticfallacy)
Now can we get THAT Batman??? Cus that would be a Batman I could respect more
