BATMAN AND PSYCHOLOGY
A Dark and Stormy Knight
Delving into the psyche of one of the most complex comic-book characters ever created, Langley analyzes topics such as the childhood trauma that eventually led Bruce Wayne to become Batman, why he wears a mask, why he chose a bat costume, the psychopathologies of Batman’s nemeses, how Freud and Jung might have viewed the Batman-Robin relationship, and the role of women in Batman’s life. Grounded in solid psychology concepts but eminently readable, the book concludes with Langley’s answer to West’s provocative question.
