Batman tries to address the root causes of crime scenario

Recently Jeremy Tolbert and I had this quick exchange on twitter about the fact that it was annoying you didn’t see many blue collar superheroes. I pointed out Spiderman and Wolverine, but agreed. In fact, I don’t have time to write this due all my other commitments, but I’ve always wanted to play a riff on this. I couldn’t use Batman, obviously, but ever since I’ve come across the concept I thought poking at the rich superhero would be fun.

I’m not sure if that hasn’t already been done, though, and I don’t have the time to research to make sure I’m not retreading old ground.

(Tim Pratt points out this SMBC Comic that addresses the same issue via Superman here.)
