    He's a billionaire from a long line of industrialists, ultimately making his family one of the major bodies in Gotham, and he uses that money to fund all manner of technology for him to beat up people who are, in the main, poor, quite a few of whom are arguably mentally ill. Rather than do anything about the deprivation in Gotham and the causes of crime, he just goes around wailing on the unfortunate.

    Nah, after many years of reading comics (and still going) I've seen Batman do more good than bad. Yeah he occasionally messes up, but he is only human after all.

    From this point of view, I would say he is a self-righteous man who is taking revenge for the killing parents in his own way. His sense for justice is just the sense of vigilantism, his methods in terms of fighting against the crime is dubious and his efforts does not change for better: he is trying to keep Gotham clear, but in presence of Batman the crime raised and the whole city became unstadier than before. This bornes out that Batman does not fight for justiice, but for himself. All in all he is an anti-hero.**

    Are you serious? before I have not seen a picture of this foundation indeed, I don't believe in this existence.
