I'm not a fan of the relationships in BTAS, but damn if this isn't a perfect Batman and a very fun story. Batman advising Scarecrow he should design amusement park rides! I'd probably get very annoyed with Batman if he was always written like that, but for one series it's very awesome. (...course the issue with that is that it's not unknown for meds to subdue one's "creative soul".) There was something else I wanted to say but my mind left on the tangent of Bruce knowing about mentally unbalanced (but of course it's not like he's getting help for it either but even then meds might be bad enough for him to forego them) etc so I don't remember what it was.
I disagree about how bad guys have to work at luring Batman in. Any innocent will work just as well. Hell, taking their own henchmen hostages would have the same effect. Getting a child or Robin just works to make Batman angry and hit him right in the blindspot: I'm reminded of the Penguin story by Brubaker where Penguin pointed out that blindspot of his.
