It has always bugged me how the Injustice series pretends Batman is the least authoritarian superhero.
I mean, come on. He tortures, conducts mass surveillance without reasonable suspicion, and has secret plans to kill every other Justice League member, implying he only considers himself above corruption. The only thing that makes him seem restrained is his “no killing” rule, so if anyone would be driven over the edge by a murder it would be him.
I don’t buy the argument that most superheroes have fascist tendencies, but given how most people mainly know Batman, I know why they think it. I like the character, but it is unsettling wondering how many people might support overly punitive and aggressive policing policies because they had those stories extolling their effectiveness every Saturday morning.
