Yes. A bad freshman year and an uphill struggle to get my GPA to where it needed to be for medical school. Seeing everyone else move on made me want to give up. It is what made Bruce's struggle to escape the Pit and overcome Bane resonate deeply.

"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
