Re: Batman hits women?
I like to call him dressing up as Batman "preventative maintenance"... it's the fear that keeps half of them in Gotham from flubbing up... fear that Batman might catch them. Right?
As far as your whole theory about Batman "hating" criminals... that's all fine and dandy to post a wikipedia definition, but it's not the 100% be-all end-all of every occurring instance of hatred. You've still yet to prove that Batman hates criminals and his villains. My only real proof for saying he doesn't is that he doesn't kill. I don't believe true hatred (if it is indeed hatred) can be defined by Batman arresting his adversary and throwing them in jail, repeatedly, time after time. And if it is hatred that drives this, it's overruled by his sense of justice.
