Bruce Wayne watched his own parents die when he was like.. 10?  Then he was this dark, disturbed high schooler who went to a Gotham private high school and eventually to Gotham State majoring in Criminology and Engineering.

He then treks around the world learning martial arts and making connections he’ll use later in his transformation into the Dark Knight.

Batman wasn’t really Batman until he was 25 according to Frank Miller, and he had been working on this identity since his parents died.

That’s 15 years of working on himself before he even saw the results of his labor.  That’s 15 years of working on yourself before your personal crime fighting project takes flight.

Being awesome takes work.  Being awesome takes time.  Don’t ever lose sight of this.
