Overview
A journey behind the mask and into the mind of Gotham City s Caped Crusader, timed for the summer 2012 release of The Dark Knight Rises

Batman and Psychology explores these and other intriguing questions about the masked vigilante, including: Does Batman have PTSD? Why does he fight crime? Why as a vigilante? Why the mask, the bat, and the underage partner? Why are his most intimate relationships with bad girls he ought to lock up? And why won't he kill that homicidal, green-haired clown?
