1) My major problem with his little vigilante period is that he stopped. Bad guys taking out other bad guys is a bonus for everyone...
Haha. Well, from a fictional stand point it's definitely fun. But from a real life stand point...? I think it's a bit more questionable.

Yeah, I agree. I think that's an interesting observation. Do you think he was rebelling more against himself or rebelling against Carlisle? Do you think one was more dominant in his decision?
The Dark Knight wrote:3) It is likely he used his gut instint to pick out who's the bad guy with his ability to read minds as a truth test. He can tell who is really bad and who is not quiet there. So he would take out other murderers, rapist, child molesters and nasty beast. Like I said before, he should not have stopped, our society could use someone doing this...
I think it's pretty likely he used his mind.
The Dark Knight wrote:4) Well of course his bloodlust played a role in the beginning but I suspected his hatred of himself was more a driving factor to the course of action that he choose. He does not want to be a monster but he knows he is.
I think questions three and four kind of go together. Let me clarify. What I was trying to ask is whether you think he could be swayed to kill someone who was maybe on the borderline of "deserving" it (whatever that may be, talk about walking into sticky moral territory) because they smelled extra tasty?

Hmm, why did he stop. I imagine he got lonely. He missed his family. And he came to the realization that it was wrong to play God. I imagine it was some combination of all of those.
