And to be a vigilante means someone actually disliked crime enough to do something about it. Sounds kind of like anger or hate to me.

To beat people up, or shoot arrows at them or whatever, requires that you don't feel much empathy for those particular people. Being angry at them at least implies that you have the capability of feeling empathy toward non-criminals.

Now to be a vigilante (where your anger at crime actually made you do something) or to be a sociopath with a society-friendly code like Dexter...which is the option you want your superheroes to be?
The one where people simply protect others cuz they have the capability and cuz it's the right thing to do.
