"Because he's a superhero in a comic book. I know that sounds like a cop out, but I have different expectations for my superheroes than I do real people."
I'm confused now. You say you have different expectations for him because he's a superhero, but you also state that "Bruce is just a person, he's not immune to fits of pique.", which I would summarize as a statement that he's a real person. But now you're saying you don't put expectations like that on him because he's a super hero. Which is it?
