Not really. If you look too closely at Batman, it's just a white male of privilege who beats up on people who are insane. The focus of mental illness = evil, and the fact that we are supposed to cheer whenever they're beaten is not necessarily a healthy message.

I realize this is a broad statement, and that some of Batman's foes are not mentally ill, but the point remains.
