Except that I have yet to see a single Batman comic in my 40+ years of reading the character's exploits where he's beaten up a junkie. Unless you count Bane.

Yes, he's beaten up muggers, and some of those muggers might be junkies, but he does it to rescue someone, not simply because someone is a drug user. Same thing with "poor people." And when you consider that both Bruce and Batman do a lot for honest poor people the claim becomes even more specious.

So for Morrison to falsely claim that Batman is a character who beats up junkies and poor people is a sign he doesn't like-or understand-the character.
