1.The Bat-Man is one of the great characters of 20th century fiction and in particular to a Post-Industrial Mythological genre known as "Super-Hero's." He was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane in 1939. He exists as a complex figure shrouded in mystery and is a master of appearances and disappearances.

2.Bat-Man is a Jungian "Underworld Archetype" in that he lives in a cave and is closely tied to the concepts of wealth and secrets. Also, because the concept of Bat-Man was birthed in death and trauma at a very young age and was used to heal his shattered life and give it meaning and power.

3.Shamanism is also particular to The Bat-Man in that an animal visitation gave him the inspiration and means to follow the path that he had chosen for himself. Like a Shaman he wears a mask of this animal and also honors this animal spirit with a representation of it in every aspect of his crime fighting career.

4. The Bat-Man is also a symbol of Mastery and Will. Batman through his own personal drive perfected himself in every conceivable skill and martial art known to man from chemistry and criminology to esoteric martial arts and subtle forms of meditation/self-hypnosis. He has tempered his willpower into an unbreakable sword. As far as he is concerned he can do anything he can conceive of.
1. "Everyone knows that Batman (and Superman) are the twin pillars that made Superhero comics what they are today"

"All the years I've known The Bat-man he hasn't changed. So mysterious, so elusive."

2. "Trauma has made many people do strange things, even dress up like a giant bat."

"I was driven by the pain of my worst memory- the night a criminal stepped from the shadows and tore my world apart. It changed me forever..."

"The Bat-Man lives in a giant underground museum of Death and Technology."

3. "A bat! That's it! It's like an omen! I shall become a Bat!"

4. "To prepare myself for the battle I developed my mind. Mastering science and criminology. I pushed myself to the limits of human endurance. Training my body to physical perfection...."

"The Batman has no limits."

"Batman has a mind like no other"

"The Batman is the World's Greatest Detective."

"Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that under the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in the world. If I moved to a martial-arts monastery in China and studied real hard for ten years. If my family was wiped out by Columbian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge. If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, devoted it to wiping out street crime. If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad."
-Neal Stephenson, "Snow Crash"

Batman is a higher state of being particular to fictional worlds. In any given universe, the Batman is that world's biggest bad-ass. This bad-ass is represented numerous ways- strength, toughness, genius, etc. This accompanies strong, authoritarian personalities and immense will.
Though they are not usually the most powerful person in their worlds, they are most certainly the Winners. It is nearly impossible to stop one who has attained Batman. Their will to survive/fight/win is simply too strong.
They're known for taking things "too far". This is quite simply because attaining Batman requires that you're more than a little crazy. Sane people simply would not do the things Batman does. Batman even scares the other good guys.
Well known examples of the Batman state: Jack Bauer, "24"; Jack Bristow, "Alias"; John McClane in later "Die Hard" films; Harry Calahan, "Dirty Harry" etc; El Mariachi, "Desperado" etc;

Invented by Bob Kane in 1940. Coolest superhero in American comic book history (the Incredible Hulk probably comes in a discreet second). Batman's real-life alter ego is billionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne. When summoned to crime-ridden Gotham City by the Batsignal (a batlike silhouette within a searchlight beam, shining onto those perpetually dense clouds) he proceeds to de-scum the place like nobody else. Often has at least one delightfully camp side-kick, but generally works best alone.
Unforgettable scene from Tim Burton's 1988 movie ..,

(BATMAN dangles HOOD over side of 23-storey building)

Batman:
I'm not going to harm you. I want you to do something. I want you to tell all your friends who I am.

Hood (howling in fear):
WHO ARE YOU?!?

(Batman pulls the Hood in about an inch from his masked face.)

Batman:
I'm Batman.

(He throws the Hood down on the flat roof behind them. Long before the criminal has regained a fraction of his composure, Batman has disappeared into the shadows.)
