Superhero politics

From wankprophet, on whether Batman is a Republican or Democrat:

Batman is clearly a syndical anarchist. As a vigilante who believes the system has failed, he couldn't be anything else (the AU future of "Dark Knight Returns" highlights this quite clearly.)

Philosophically, he's a proto-existentialist with shades of Nietzsche.

And he's a antitransubstantiationalist Episcopalian who has nevertheless always felt a little uncomfortable with the Trinitarian doctrine but thinks the hypostatic union has a certain poetic resonance.
