Batman and How suffering Can Transform You into a Saint

Batman Mythology

No other superhero has as impressive and extensive of a villain’s gallery as Batman. Throughout the years, the Dark Knight has battled sociopaths (The Joker, Zsasz), assassins (Deathstroke, Deadshot). He has faced mystics (Ra’s Al Ghul), villains relying on technology (Firefly, Mr. Freeze), the super strong (Bane, Killer Kroc) and the intelligent (Two-Face, The Calculator). Batman has fought every type of villain on the evil-spectrum.

Batman’s ability to deal with a variety of villains has been a major reason he is one of my favorite comic book hero. According to Dwight K. Schrute, “A hero is born out of a childhood trauma, or out of a disaster that must be avenged.” Bruce Wayne’s transformation into Batman began on the fateful night his parents were murdered. Losing your entire world could easily make a person go over the edge of sanity.

Leading up to Detective Comics Issue #1000, the writer/artist team of Peter J. Tomasi and Doug Mahnke provide a fast-paced, original, and mystery-driven plot in Batman: Mythology. The Dark Knight sheds light on how humanity can grow in the face of adversity (Shouldn’t we have a tactical plan against the craziness this year has thrown at us?).
