Hi, Clair. I’d like to come in and talk with you. Would that be all right?
This is the Batman we need to see more often. The one who remembers what it was like to be a scared child, one who knows how to handle situations delicately.
One of the reason why I love batman so much. He is portrayed as a very careful and guarded man. But he is probably the most human out of anyone. It’s why he is the knight that gotham deserves.
Re: that last panel –
Batman, when he’s written correctly, is an extremely compassionate person.
I always feel the need to reblog this because it’s definitely something I feel was lost in the Nolan films.
The thing about Bruce is he believes he is not a good man, but he is.
I wish they’d show this side of Batman in films. We know he can fight but what separated him for me was what he did outside of just beating bad guys up. He donated money, he visited foster homes frequently, he supported victims through trauma, and like the person above said, he was compassionate. That’s what made Batman more than just another crime fighting hero to me
Shit, I wish they’d show this side in rebirth. Sigh.
