Why doesn't Batman just kill the Joker and end everyone's misery? Can we hold the Joker morally responsible for his actions? Is Batman better than Superman? If everyone followed Batman's example, would Gotham be a better place? What is the Tao of the Bat? Batman is one of the most complex characters ever to appear in comic books, graphic novels, and on the big screen. What philosophical trials does this superhero confront in order to keep Gotham safe? Combing through seventy years of comic books, television shows, and movies, Batman and Philosophy explores how the Dark Knight grapples with ethical conundrums, moral responsibility, his identity crisis, the moral weight he carries to avenge his murdered parents, and much more. How does this caped crusader measure up against the teachings of Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Kierkegaard, and Lao Tzu?

Over the sixty years of his existence, Batman has encountered an impressive array of cultural icons and has gradually become one himself. This fascinating book examines what Batman means and has meant to the various audiences, groups and communities who have tried to control and interpret him over the decades. Brooker reveals the struggles over Batman's meaning by shining a light on the cultural issues of the day that impacted on the development of the character. They include: patriotic propaganda of the Second World War; the accusation that Batman was corrupting the youth of America by appearing to promote a homosexual lifestyle to the fans of his comics; Batman becoming a camp, pop culture icon through the ABC TV series of the sixties; fans' interpretation of Batman in response to the comics and the Warner Bros. franchise of films.

This cultural analysis of visual and narrative elements within Batman comics provides an important exploration of the ways readers and creators negotiate gender, identity, and sexuality in popular culture. Thematic chapters investigate how artists, writers, and fans engage with, challenge, and interpret gendered and sexual representations by focusing on one of the most popular and heated fictional rivalries ever inked: that of Batman and the Joker. The monograph provides critical insights into ways queer reading practices can open new forms of understanding that have generally remained implicit and unexplored in mainstream comics studies. This accessible and interdisciplinary approach to the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime engages diverse fields of scholarship such as Comics Studies, Critical Theory, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Literature, Psychoanalysis, Media Studies, and Queer Theory.

"A Newsweek Best Graphic Novel of the Year The impossible has happened: The Joker has become a ... hero? Batman: White Knight follows the man now known as Jack Napier as he embarks on a quest to heal the city he once terrorized. After reconciling with his long-suffering partner, Harley Quinn, he sets in motion a carefully plotted campaign to discredit the one person whom he views as Gotham City's true enemy: Batman. His crusade exposes a decades-long history of corruption within the Gotham City Police Department and transforms Napier into a city councilman and civic hero. But when the sins of his past return to threaten everything that he has accomplished, the distinctions between savior and destroyer begin to break down for both The Joker and Batman alike--and with them any hope for Gotham's future. Writer and artist Sean Murphy delivers an extraordinary examination of comics' greatest antagonists in Batman: White Knight, exploring justice, corruption, activism and the darkest depths of mental illness. Collecting the acclaimed eight-issue miniseries, this stunning graphic novel also marks the debut of the DC Black Label imprint, which features classic DC characters in standalone stories written and illustrated by world-class authors and artists"--

From his first comic-book appearance in 1939 through his many incarnations on the big screen, the archetypal superhero known as The Batman has never been far from the American consciousness. The character shaped the way we read comics and graphic novels, view motion pictures, and analyze the motifs of the Hero, the Anti-Hero and the Villain. He has also captured the scholarly imagination, telling us much about our society and ourselves. These essays examine how Batman is both the canvas on which our cultural identity is painted, and the Eternal Other that informs our own journeys of understanding. Questions relating to a wide range of disciplines—philosophy, literature, psychology, pop culture, and more—are thoroughly and entertainingly explored, in a manner that will appeal both to scholars and to fans of the Caped Crusader alike.

John Batman An Inside Story of the Birth of Melbourne A Summary of the Story This book tells the story of how Melbourne was birthed. It begins with Captain Cook's discovery of Australia and the colonisation that followed at Botany Bay. The quest began to find a suitable location for another settlement in the south of the continent. Although Port Phillip Bay was discovered, its potential was not immediately realised. The penal settlement established at Sorrento by David Collins in 1803 was abandoned within three months and the site of Hobart in Tasmania was chosen for the next development. In 1824 the explorers Hume and Hovell travelled south from Sydney and reached Port Phillip Bay. They recognised the potential of the area but unfortunately Hovell made a mistake regarding its location, which impeded settlement for another eleven years. Hume and Batman had been childhood friends and when Batman, then living in Tasmania, heard about the vast pasturelands available in the area it triggered the dream of taking possession of the land of plenty north of Bass Strait. It would take another nine years before he could assemble a group of influential men to assist him in his quest to claim the riches waiting at Port Phillip Bay. The plan was spearheaded by a group of four men supported by a larger group of investors. Charles Swanston who owned the biggest bank in Australasia controlled the finances, while Joseph Gellibrand, a lawyer who had been Attorney General in Tasmania, organised the legal requirements for the project. John Wedge's role as surveyor was to map the territory ready for subdivision. John Batman, who was Australian born, brought a large variety of skills to the drawing board. He was thought to be Australia's greatest tracker, he had captured bushrangers, successfully gathered the remnant of Tasmanian Aborigines as well as being a wealthy landowner. The political climate within the British Parliament at that time was influenced by the recent passage of the Act to Abolish Slavery in 1833. The outpouring of humanitarian feeling generated by this event led to new attitudes towards native rights and title. Within the hearts of these men from Tasmania there developed a desire to establish a settlement that would not only bring them financial gain but also set a benchmark within the British Empire for equitable relationships between native peoples and Europeans. To achieve such an ideal the notion of a treaty gradually developed, modelled on William Penn's Treaty in Pennsylvania in 1683. Batman's role was to lead the expedition to Port Phillip, explore the land and make a treaty with the local Aborigines. Unfortunately the timing of this opportunity coincided with the news that he was seriously ill at just 32 years old. The project became a race against his failing health and what was planned as a carefully thought out expedition became a hurried event. John Batman in his barque the Rebecca finally passed through the heads into Port Phillip Bay in May 1835, the first white man to do so in three decades. He was amazed at the quality of the land he found and the beauty of the magnificent harbour. He needed to find the natives so he could execute the treaty that Gellibrand had prepared for him. However on seeing the European vessel entering the bay the Aborigines had sent up smoke signals telling everyone to hide until the clan leaders could meet and work out a strategy for dealing with the situation. Eventually they approached Batman and took him to a ceremonial site they had chosen. The treaty was duly executed but because of Batman's ill health it was not possible for him to enact all that Gellibrand had written into the pro forma deed. When John Batman returned to Tasmania he was hailed as a hero and referred to as the Tasmanian Penn. He called the settlement to be established by the treaty Batmania. There was still much to be done, since

Concentrating primarily on contemporary depictions of Batman in the comic books, this book analyzes why Batman is so immensely popular right now in America and globally, and how the fictional Dark Knight reveals both new cultural concerns and longstanding beliefs about American values. The organizing premise is that while Batman is perceived as a very clearly defined character, he is open to a wide range of interpretations and depictions in the comics (what Henry Jenkins refers to as "multiplicities"), each of which allows access to different cultural issues. The idea of Batman functions as an anchoring point out of which multiple Batmen, or Batman-like characters, can occupy different positions: Grim Batman, Gay Batman, Female Batman, Black Batman, Cute Batman, and so on. Each iteration opens up a discussion of different cultural issues pertinent to modern society, such as sexuality, ethnicity, feminism and familial relationships.
