The Batman

“They told me there was nothing out there, nothing to fear. But the night my parents were murdered I caught a glimpse of something. I’ve looked for it ever since. I went around the world, searched in all the shadows. And there is something out there in the darkness, something terrifying, something that will not stop until it gets revenge… Me.” (Christian Bale ,Bruce Wayne, Batman Begins, 2005)

Today’s first episode is about the most popular DC Comics superhero, The Batman.

Like most superheroes Batman is vigilante who’s purpose is to fight crime and bring villains to justice. It was created by Bob Kane in the 30’s so we can say that this is one of the oldest superheroes. The hero has appeared in comic books, movies, cartoons and video games but it’s popularity reached his climax because of the British movie director, Christopher Nolan, who gave Batman an entirely new design.

Batman is a masked vigilante who fights crime in the fictional city of Gotham City. The real identity of the hero is Bruce Wayne, a billionaire that decides to take action in a city of crime. At a fragile age, Bruce witnessed the assassination of his parents by a desperate murderer. As he grows, he learns the means to apply justice and to bring fear on those who prey on fearful. With the help of his loyal butler Alfred, and the Gotham Police commissioner Jim Gordon, Batman fights with terrible villains such as the well known Joker, Harvey “Two Face” Dent or Bane.

Batman, aka The Dark Knight or the Caped Crusader is a very complex character that has become an idol and an inspirational figure. The character will be presented more specifically in the upcoming episodes.
