A BATMAN SUPERPOST
In the Gotham justice system, there are three enforcers of the law: the police, the judicial system, and Batman. Batman is a really rich and really moody dude who saw his parents get killed when he was a kid and who runs around wearing a cape, angsting across the skyline and fighting crime as a way of self diagnosed therapy.
