So what does he have to say about not only the character, but the issue? Take it away, Grant!

   Batman was the hero every kid could aspire to be. Well, at least that was the logic a skinny, geeky kid in Miami used. See, I never expected to be bitten by a radioactive anything, and as far as I knew, I hadn’t been born on another planet — despite sometimes hoping that was the case. But Batman, yeah — that was at least doable, you know?
