What is it about Batman that keeps people coming back?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 17, 2008
“What isn’t it about Batman? He’s not even a superhero, he’s just awesome. He doesn’t need super powers. He relies on technology and his own strength, speed and martial arts training to be a hero.”
“I think it’s because he was able to face his biggest fear and turn it into an asset.”
“I think it’s probably because he’s a dark, tortured soul with a sense of humor in spite of it. I think there’s a little Batman in us all.”
“That’s an interesting question. If it was about Superman, I would have known what to say. I think it’s the fact that he’s just a normal person, he doesn’t have any powers, so it makes being a superhero seem attainable.”
