Psychotherapy and Batman

I came across this story on NPR, called "The Id, The Ego and the Superhero: What makes Batman tick?" An interesting little piece to get us all excited for The Dark Knight Rises which will be opening later this week.

From there, I discovered Dr. Robin Rosenberg, Ph.D., ABPP. She has done extensive research on Superheroes and their psychology. It is absolutely fascinating.

I recommend following the above links and reading about her. From her website, you can get to her blog which has some excerpts from her book "What's the Matter with Batman?" An Unauthorized Clinical Look Under the Mask of the Caped Crusader.
