Batman Needs to Man Up

Your parents die, you become Batman. That’s pretty much standard comic book lore, but it’s a plot device that’s used far more often than you might imagine.

In this comic that’s a hell of a lot longer than what you see above, Batman learns that he needs to stop crying about his parents, because half of his contemporaries share the same issue, or worse.

I think Superman’s story is actually the saddest, but at least he has awesome superpowers to cheer him up.
