Batman – the Millionaire with the Dark Side

Batman has at least two major themes. One is that of the millionaire alter-ego – Bruce Wayne the millionaire philanthropist and capitalist hero.

Batman, like Ironman, is a millionaire hero who has the money to do what he wants and has decided to use his money and the power that comes with it to do good and protect the weak and fight for justice.

It is a nice idea.
