“This summer, Batman will once again burst onto the screens with the July release of Warner Brothers’ The Dark Knight Rises. By this time, many of us have wondered about our culture’s seven- decade fascination with the Caped Crusader. ‘Superherologist’ Travis Langley has done so more tellingly than most. In this singular book, he writes about Batman as a superhero with no superpowers, a hero who taps into our most primal fears and our deepest wishes. Dr. Langley puts this masked vigilante and his admirers on the analyst couch to examine what makes him—and us tick. A revealing look at Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego.”
