But what if they had died in another way, sparking a different sort of obsession in their son? Artist Daniel Irizarri takes a goofy look at the alternate vigilante paths Batman might have taken.

I get what they're going for but Batman doesn't use guns because his parents were murdered with one. So following that logic, if his parents were killed by high cholesterol, would he not just forego fatty foods? And if they are following the 'crime killed his parents so he stops crime' logic, these still don't make any god damn sense!

If it is in his character to fight against the things that make him feel powerless, would he not just become a surgeon after his parents get killed by 'butt' cancer?

And who the hell gets killed by pollution?
