cass, can you not

Obvious thought of the day

The movie American Psycho was but a thinly disguised Elseworld where the Waynes didn't die. Bruce grew up into Brucie, and as his underlying issues(*) didn't have the Bat as a release mechanism, he went bonkers in a different way.

(*) I've always seen as a possibility that pre-Crime Alley Bruce had issues, or at least the seed of issues. Not all orphans become Bats. But it can work either way; I love to pieces Elseworlds were Bruce grew up normally - he's sometimes even more impressive than the Batman, although not always. This is one of those fanon things where I'm happy to play with both possibilities.
