Batman is someone that does not need hand-holding to achieve his goals and he is action-oriented. Every time he steps out to fight crime in Gotham City he is taking a chance. Batman strives to be the best in his craft and is always five steps ahead of his opponents. If you are looking for an employee who can work independently and is action-oriented, Batman is the right choice for you.
