The 2000s weren't a great time for Batman. True, there were a lot of good stories and creators with a lot of good work at the time, some of which is still influencing work to this day (such as Gotham Central and the Brubaker/Stewart/Cooke Catwoman run), but as for the character himself? ...Well you know how a lot of the bullying behaviour from Silver Age Superman stories can apparently be traced back to one particularly unpleasant editor or something? Same goes for Batman's behaviour in a lot of these stories.

Where the personal taste of the creators throw everyone under the bus )

Some of you may remember the time I posted that one story where Bruce is depicted as a completely realistic corporate CEO. Well, more realistic than almost any other take, anyways. Good times, good times.

Many of you rightfully called out that portrayal as terrible, and that pondering the "realistic" foundations of Wayne Enterprises misses the whole point of Batman very, very badly. This recent article from Chris Sims on that very topic got me thinking: what would be the total, polar opposite of Batman: Tenses? What story would have Bruce's boundless charity and philanthropy play a central role, not just be relegated to a plot convenience or a fuzzy-wuzzy epilogue?

Ladies and germs, I believe I've found the answer. And the answer may shock you to your very core!

"I’m speechless. This is the single thing in this entire series that can still render me such, even on this, my third re-read of the book. Not that we’re going to run low on insanity from here on out. It’s just that this is easily the nadir." - Fletcher “Syrg” Arnett

"The Dark Knight series is all from Batman's point of view. But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you'll see a Superman who's much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight. Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They're not people. They're only lines on paper."

- Frank Miller
