Father Barron on The Dark Knight

Since I’m trying to create some superhero characters of my own, I found this reflection by Father Robert Barron on the superhero concept and its philosophical and theological problems to be quite interesting. He focuses his attention on the recent Batman movie The Dark Knight, but he mentions other popular superheroes in passing and his observations could be applied to just about any superhero character. Father Barron has a real gift for packing a great deal of thought-provoking material into the ten minutes or less allowed by YouTube.
