The Bruce Wayne we meet at the beginning of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” is very different to the man we see at the films end. In the beginning we see Bruce Wayne as a crippled, weak, recluse who is broken emotionally as well as physically. He has isolated himself from the rest of society & has lost his motivation & will to live. Crime has virtually disappeared under the Harvey Dent Act & Batman is no longer needed in Gotham. By the conclusion of the film we see that Bruce Wayne has found the motivation & the will to live again. He has re-found his fear of death whilst imprisoned in the pit & has escaped to return to Gotham to fight Bane & retake the city from his clutches. We now see him as a man fighting for the survival of

When James Gatz was young, he met Dan Cody who took him under his wing and led him on a strive to achieve great wealth. When Gatz sees his inheritance is not enough to achieve the idolized millionaire status, he continues to work hard by illegally selling alcohol in various “drug stores” under Wolfsheim (Fitzgerald 141).This self-redeeming trait is reflected in Wayne’s path in order to become the Gotham vigilante. Unlike Gatz, Wayne used the millions inherited from his parents to create Batman’s apparatus, butbut similar to Gatz, was not born as powerful as he wanted to be. Bruce Wayne was merely born as vigilante and was essentially a superhero outsider. Without being born with or developing the supernatural abilities of the traditional superhero, he begins to travel the Eastern Hemisphere learning strength and precision from his mentors Henri Ducard and Ra’s Al Ghul in order to confront the injustice in Gotham. (Batman Begins, 2005). In order to become greater, these characters became determined to rebuild themselves. They searched for guidance from their mentors in order to become the secret identities they yearned to be. Bruce Wayne uses his technology, brute strength, and passion to fight injustice and becomes one of the greatest crimefighter of Gotham City, similar to how the wealth earned by Gatz’s perseverance and diligence allowed him to become one of the most
Batman is one of the many fictional superheroes which appears in the “American comic books” that is published by the DC comics. The character is a secret identity for Bruce Wayne, the only heir to Wayne Enterprises. Bruce Wayne swore an oath of vengeance when he witnessed the death of his parents;Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne (Diamond, 2015). Bat man combats criminals in Gotham: a fictional city, with assistance from various characters, for example, his butler Alfred and Gordon; Gotham city police commissioner. Unlike many of the superheroes characters, Batman possesses no powers .Bruce Wayne trained himself intellectually and physically .it is from dedication to training he possessed the useful traits of physical prowess, martial arts skills, detective skills and indomitable will to fight for justice. Though his motive is to combat crime and protect people of Gotham city from criminals, the justice system in most of the times views Batman as a villain and vigilante.

Gotham is a city struggling with city wide corruption. The cops and city hall are both in the pockets of the Falcon family. The city is overrun by crime. There are more cities like this in America then most would think. Gotham is based off of the city of New york at night but, metropolis the city of Superman is New york during the day. Superman does not hide who he is and abides by a strict moral code. So he is seen as a white knight a hero of the day. Batman hides who he is and only follows one rule no killing. So he is the Dark Knight he hides in the shadows.

Superman has powers like flying, x-rays, and heat vision. With his power Superman faces responsibilities and difficulties in calm and adequate ways. The opposite of Batman is that he is more aggressive and very impulsive in the moment to attack. They are very easily distinguished either in a comic book or a movie for their customs in different colors. Batman outfit is gray with black and a mask which anyone could determine the evil and dark he represents by the outside. Superman is in a brightest outfit representing America and the kind a hero they will choose definitely to fight crime. Frank Miller only wanted to bring Batman a little bit different with other perceptions including his principal rival Superman to make the story interesting and give the opportunity for many readers to notice wrong actions from our comic heroes.
