We have a collective fascination with vigilantism. Crusaders for the greater good, often covered in unique and creative costume, dashing through the shadows and snatching up evil doers before the evil can be done. We love characters like Batman and Spiderman because they protect the most vulnerable people from the most dangerous predators. But they’re just fiction… right? What if I told you the world had a Batman once, and he was a lot more complicated than the caped crusader we know and love. Check out The Friend Zone: Docuseries
