Batman dresses in costume, spends a good part of his wealth to support the lifestyle of his bat-alter ego, and puts his life on the line nightly. There must be something wrong with him, right? This question is that heart of "What's the Matter With Batman?" Clinical psychologist Robin Rosenberg delves into the mind of Batman. She examines his problems, "issues," and possible symptoms to determine whether he suffers from any of a variety of psychiatric disorders.
 Dr. Rosenberg is the series editor of the Superhero series with Oxford University Press and has been featured discussing psychology and superheroes in various media including The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, and National Public Radio,
