I'm not one for writing about myself doing anything spontaneously, least of all writing, which is why I never made a bio. In place of that, I'll just post what Fallen said about me being Batman (well, a Batman).
"BH though, we're definitely different Batmen if you're also Batman. You're somewhere between some pieces of BTAS, The Dark Knight Returns (NOT the TDK Rises, very different), and a little bit of All-Star Batman (thankfully not the really screwed up parts, more the "I am the dogdamn Batman!" attitude that you've presented at a few points)."
"You're more precise, logical, hard hitting, dark, and willing to push your boundaries in ways that please you while still rarely cracking a smile. You're the Batman who can justify using a sniper rifle so long as you don't actually shoot anyone using it. You'll break a guy's back and cripple him for life if it means justice is served. You don't really give a damn about authority other than your own, although you sometimes listen to the reasoning of others. You trust yourself above all else though, and are truly confident in your beliefs; which is part of what draws others to you and makes them listen to you as an authority figure."
Between that, my favorite quotes, and the Pyramid of Greatness, that's all you really need to know about me.

Here's a picture of me when I'm angry
When I'm happy
When I read a funny joke
Me when I realize that picture is two years old
And my dog, because why not.
The Gameinformer quote section is an unformatted mess, so I decided to remove it and put some of the quotes from there, here. I recently bought "The Quoteable A**hole", so expect the size to increase dramatically.
"Man's unfailing capacity to believe what he prefers to be true rather than what the evidence shows to be likely and possible has always astounded me. We long for a caring Universe which will save us from our childish mistakes, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary we will pin all our hopes on the slimmest of doubts. God has not been proven not to exist, therefore he must exist."-Provost Mikhail Zakharov
“If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance who is harmed.”-Marcus Aurelius
“The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.”- Marcus Aurelius
“The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” - Marcus Aurelius
“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones." Marcus Aurelius
"Ninety-nine percent of the people in the world are fools, and the rest of us are in great danger of contagion." - Thornton Wilder
“Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.”
"The only teacher who's worth anything to you is your enemy."
"[Humans] questions everything they believe, except what they really believe, which they never think to question at all."
“Patriotism is the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reasons.” - Bertrand Russell
"Nationalism! Unilateralism! Materialism! Welcome maxims for those with no faith - no guiding principles of their own. Give yourself up to the whole. No need to better yourself - you're American! You're number one!" -Steven Armstrong
“So they’ve got us surrounded, good! Now we can fire in any direction, those b*****ds won’t get away this time!” Lt. General Lewis B. Puller, USMC upon hearing his unit was surrounded and outnumbered 30-1
"When the enemy is driven back, we have failed. When he is cut off, encircled and dispersed, we have succeeded." -Alexander Suvorov
"The problem with quotes on the internet is you never know how accurate they really are."-Abraham Lincoln
