Batman's Traumatic Origins

This is a little heavy, but inspiring at the same time.
  Years ago I became aware that a particular superhero, who has entertained millions of people, had special appeal to the traumatized children who visited my office. I had a hunch that a trauma had inspired the creation of this superhero. See if you think my hunch was correct.

Kane advised that, “Bruce Wayne should be played as a psychologically disturbed eccentric.” Then he admitted, “I drew Bruce Wayne in my own image.”
 Bruce Wayne describes the trauma as the night “all sense left my life.” This is the changed attitude about life that is a hallmark of traumatized children.
