How Can Some Men Dislike Brooding Characters but Like Batman?

    Some women, both in actuality and in fiction, seem to be fond of brooding antisocial males with dark personalities or dark clothing, which leads “normal” men (again, both in actuality and in fiction) to wonder why those women are so fond of the brooding men, yet many of those men are fond of Batman, who is the very epitome of a dark and brooding male.

    Therefore, I am wondering: how some men can justify this double standard, how they can criticize (for example) Sakura being fond of Sasuke in Naruto, yet be fond of Batman; what does Batman have that Sasuke, Anakin Skywalker, Kylo Ren, and so forth not have? What does everyone else say about this?

    Batman does more than just brood. Characters that brood for no reason (Pt. 1 Shino) are kind of boring.

    Yes, but I fail to see why that would influence the opinion of other men toward him.

    Oh snap, it all makes sense now. Sasuke IS Batman. He saw his parents getting killed when he was a kid, so he awakened the bat-genes, a fetish of his great-grandmother.

    People don't read/watch Batman for his personality. They read/watch him because he does cool stuff and is a cultural icon.

    There are also a lot more incarnations of Batman than the characters you listed. Some are great while others are just plain dumb and get the hate that you described.

    Batman unlike sasuke is a man in a bat costume and has no powers, aside from when he does some bs and pulls out some kind of tech that the writers shoehorn in to ex machina an end to the crisis, he uses his intelligence cunning and will to accomplish his goals which is completely different from sasuke who pulls out some other random ability from his magic eyes

    Also unlike those character you've listed batman is a man of honour unlike them, the whole arsehole routine is an act put on to project an image of strength since he uses fear as a weapon to intimidate his enemies. The playboy womaniser act he puts on is a mask that allows him to continue being batman without being suspicious of him.

    also unlike those people he's not motivated by self serving ideals his indomitable will and sense of justice are the reason he does what he does not revenge or personal gratification

    @DemonDragonJ Well, unlike the other brooding/anti-social characters that are in different media, Batman differentiates from the rest of them due to the fact that when we are reading Batman, we are mostly in the front seat of Batman's perspective regarding the situations that happen to/around him. From there, we are able to see why Batman is the way he is, and how his stoic/brooding personality makes a presence throughout the stories that he mainly appears in.

    Aside from the fact that Batman is the main character of his series (instead of being a side character/footnote), so we see situations that happen throughout the series through Batman's eyes a bit more. From there, we usually end up empathizing with his actions a bit more, simply because we understand his situation/scenario a bit more.

    I'm not entirely convinced that 'brooding' has anything to do with it. All those characters have more to them than just 'brooding', and they all play separate roles in their individual plots and stories. You're essentially saying "Batman is brooding, men like Batman, Sasuke is brooding, men dislike Sasuke, therefore men like brooding characters and also dislike brooding characters".

    Batman is the good guy, Sasuke is the bad guy.

    Batman broods for something out of his control.

    Sasuke feels sorry for himself for the family he lost while trying to kill his friends.

    Plus Batman isn’t one character.

    Batman in TAS is >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Batman in Young Justice/JLU/Doom

    Batman can be a prick at times and he’s only saved by the good will he earned with his better written incarnations.
