Stemming from the discussion of Bruce's darkness, I think the inevitable questions comes to this:

Where would Bruce be today if his parents weren't killed?


Yes, I know it sounds like a bad AU fanfic, but I think it's the question the darkness discussion is really getting at.



For me, without that fateful event, I can't see Bruce truly becoming Batman.  I see him as a philanthropist, much like his father is often depicted as.  He uses his money and company to make Gotham a better place.  I think the most invasive Bruce would be in this scenario is to become a well-meaning politician (if such a thing exists).

In short, without the death of his parents, I don't see Bruce ever developing the anger or drive that is the original spark that begins his journey to become Batman.

Thoughts?
