Default Re: Batman as a Vehicle for the Surveillance State

Miller took a heavy conservative stance post 9/11, I still think his Batman works as an anti-authority figure. There's a heavy revolutionary theme in all his works, in DKSA Batman is in full on terrorist mode. Miller uses Batman as a way to shake up the established order, whether it be a crime riddled Gotham or a future dystopia. I guess I see Miller's Batman as a symbol of change, while his Superman is the ultimate protector of the status quo.
