"Batman is an insane sociopath" is one of the things that I don't get and "follow" when it comes to Batman and is one of the main reasons Frank Miller's "All Star Batman and Robin age Twelve" sucks so much.
yeah, the whole thing really originated with Miller, who has said many times that Batman is insane (see the extras on the Daredevil DVD, for instance). I'm not a fan of this interpretation.
I've always gone with Superman being the "real guy" with Clark Kent being "the disguise"
So with Batman is the "real man" the playboy billionaire or the sociopathic crime-fighter?
Well, we have to stick with the source material. Bruce Wayne, like Don Diego de la Vega, is a rich wastrel, a front for the activities of Batman. So Batman is the real man.
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
