We’ve all heard the old saying–
Be yourself-- unless you can be Batman. Then?
But Batman has certain heroic and altruistic qualities that make him BATMAN.
Each of us has some of those qualities!
What parts of you let you be like
What stories of altruism can you share-- when you were Batman, or you saw someone else be BATMAN?
I don’t think this thread will get very far because altruism is best done in secret
but I think my Dad pretty great he helps people all the time and expects nothing in return
Childhood trauma? An obsessive vengeful streak? A very suspect no-kill rule that doesn’t hold up under scrutiny?
Are you still mad at Bruce Vain?
Well, I lost someone I love to murder, so there’s that. Beyond that, I like to think I have a good moral compass and a desire to see justice done. I honestly care about others. I think Batman’s altruism is something often overlooked in some interpretations of the character.
For real-life examples, I saved my elderly neighbor’s life. I have also helped people with car trouble along the roadside, among other things.
I’m not sure if I can call myself altruistic its true I help people but I never seek it out
people just show up so I help them I never go anywhere because I can’t drive I’m pretty sure most people don’t even know I exist but despite that I still get to help people all the time I’m not rich or strong the only thing for sure I am is here
which is the middle of nowhere
