Popis This paper aims to leave the usual scope of the law and literature and focuses on one of the greatest comicbook superheroes – the Batman. Batman is often claimed to be the greatest vigilante, but in this paper I dare to argue with this general view on its role in society. Batman cannot be claimed to be a vigilante, because he does not aim to alter the existing state monopoly of violence. He acts as a catalyst enhancing the law enforcement powers. He presents the incorruptible role-model to something we see in our world even today as the technology advances further into our lives – crowd-sourcing of the law enforcement through the collective effort of some of the law-abiding citizens.
