Bruce suffers from severe PTSD. Some people also claim he has a hero complex. There's a whole book on the psychology of Batman. Good read. Definitely recommend checking it out.

I'll have to check that out, sounds awesome!! This one?

As someone who does a lot of meta and academic literary discussion on comics, I am 100% certain that a paper exists about psychopathy and the Batman universe; it might not be about Bruce and psychopathy (most essays about psychopathy related to Batman that I've read have focused on either the Joker or Two-Face), but there have definitely been papers written about the philosophy, ethics, morality, and psychology of Batman and the Batfamily. You're going to find most of these types of discussions in the field of comics studies and academic historical/literary criticism rather than psychology due to the nature of the topic. For some interesting paper/essay collections, see:

About Batman as in the history of, or about Batman in other ways?

I've found both The Dark Knight of the Soul and A Dark and Stormy Knight to be both accessible and interesting. The former is a philosophical take, the latter a psychological one.

I have been interested in this sort of stuff for ages and was surprised to find out there's actually a decent amount of discussion around this topic.

First there's a documentary-esque psychological discussion/analysis regarding the Dark Knight movies - (

As well as that there's a very good podcast from Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward, that psychoanalyses the episodes of B:TAS one by one -
Dr Letamendi has also done some conventions and panels discussing Batman, as well as a few articles. IMHO I'd look into her work the most, she's done a lot of work regarding Batman in the past.

There are a few articles and such scattered around the internet, you could probably find a few more just googling - (,, As well as that there's a few books, for example - (

Finally there's been a few Comic-Con and other convention panels that have had both forensic psychologists and comic book writers (such as the Unlocking Arkham panel at Comic-Con last year with current Batman writer Tom King) though they may be hard to find, as I doubt they were filmed.

You could try something like Batman and Psychology by Travis Langley. Pretty interesting.

This has been an interesting read about mental illnesses within the world of Batman:

Anyone who's interested in the psychology of Batman might be interested in this book.

u/rhuguenel · 1 pointr/MovieDetails

But there was a TV program that was 1-2 hours well that stemmed from this book. It may be what you’re talking about but I don’t remember this particular program being in the bonus features.

u/hickazicka · 1 pointr/batman

There's a whole book about this:

It's a good read, if you're interested in this topic.
