It is kind of interesting that people have moved on from the cliched joke of Batman and Robin being a couple, to people saying that because Bruce is rich he is really selfish and arrogant with his money, despite both being kind of invalid.

Have they? I honestly hadn't noticed, especially given how far not just the comics, but the various media (BTAS, The Batman, the Nolan movies, even the Burton and Schumacker flicks) have gone to stress how much of a philanthorpist and investor in Gotham as a city and a population, not just a crime-fighting project.

The only person in-story to draw much attention to it was Jezebel Jet... and we KNOW how that one ended up.

not the writers just various people aware of the character.

Yeah, distinctly remember my Dad saying years ago the reason he didn't like Batman (and DC comics) was because they were too far removed from real people (he liked Spider-Man films ok). So from an outside perspective Bruce tends to look like a billionaire playing with gadgets. I have always kinda wondered if there was a better way he could spend all his time investing in stuff.

what does that do for people who might go through what he did? Remember Chill beign a criminal because of an economic depression was new to Nolan's films. THere's plenty more where he's a professional criminal and Bruce trying to eliminate poverty wouldn't do anything.

overall I feel like the DCU is a bit more realistic than the MU, whatever the successes of the heroes personal lives.

At the very least the real world's obsessionw with celebrity could help explain the people of the DCU's fannishness for the heroes, who never almost never have tabloidesque scandals. T

I remember one of the issues from "Bruce Wayne: Murderer?" had man-on-the-street type interviews about the murder investigation. Several people didn't believe Bruce did it because of all the charity work he was involved in. There was also an issue of Gotham Knights that focused on Bruce's various charity work: funding and working at a soup kitchen, hanging out with kids at a youth center, pointing out to a mail clerk that he gives free college tuition to all his employees, and convincing another businessman to build a civic center instead of yet another coffee shop because the guy can put his name on it and leave a positive legacy behind.
