Wayne averts suspicion by acting the part of a superficial, dim-witted playboy idly living off his family's fortune (amassed through investment in real estate before the city became a bustling metropolis)   and the profits of Wayne Enterprises, his inherited conglomerate.   He supports philanthropic causes through his nonprofit Wayne Foundation, but is more widely known as a celebrity socialite.   In public, he pretends to be a heavy drinker, using ginger ale to suggest champagne and liberally serving alcohol to guests that he never actually consumes himself. In reality, he keeps a strict diet concerned to maintain top physical fitness and mental acuity. In public, he appears frequently in the company of fashionable women to encourage tabloid gossip. In reality, there is less than meets the eye: though he leads an active romantic life, crime-fighting accounts for most of his night hours. Batman's primary character traits can be summarized as wealth, physical prowess, deductive abilities and obsession. The driving force behind Batman's motives is his parents' murder. Despite his trauma, he sets his mind on studying to become a scientist and to train his body into physical perfection to fight crime in Gotham City as Batman, an inspired idea from Wayne's insight into the criminal mind. Another of Batman's characterizations is a vigilante; in order to stop evil that started with the death of his parents, he must sometimes break laws himself.  Superheroes ETHOS LOGOS PATHOS
