Superman is at its core a metaphor about adolescence, a power fantasy built around the teenage years. Batman isn't. Batman is a story of anger and frustration and not being able to control the world and make it fair. It's a metaphor about a younger stage of life, essentially like an eight-year-old wanting to impose his idea of fairness and justice on a complicated world. -- Kurt Busiek

Thanks for sharing this. I love Busiek's description of Batman. A childish concept of justice.

Wow.

I probably should have seen that coming, but I didn't.
