Batman & His Utilitarian Belt

Is there some underlying philosophy to the Batman franchise?

When we’re reading the comic books or watching the shows and movies of our youth, we usually don’t put a whole lot of thought into what those stories are attempting to teach us. Not all of them have a lesson to be learned, but many of them, if even unintentionally, are based in some sort of philosophical principle. With that, we explore Batman from the perspective of his moral philosophy as stated outright in the stories as well as some of what was built into the background of the overall dynamic between Batman, his enemies, and the community he seemingly sought to serve.
