Added DiffLines:

As of 2016, while ''Zero Year'' remains in canon as the current de facto origin story, [[BroadStrokes at least parts of]] ''Year One'' have been restored into the main continuity as well after ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'', with the two-part story "Rooftops" flashing directly back to an event from ''Year One" when Bruce encountered Selina Kyle.

* JerkassFacade: Bruce Wayne. Though in the animated film, Sarah Essen believes (correctly) that Bruce is [[ClarkKenting acting like that]] to throw away suspicions of him being Batman.

* CollectorOfTheStrange: Much to Catwoman's chagrin, Commissioner Loeb has a $40,000 collection of... pop memorabilia.

** But it teaches him that he needs to instill fear into the hearts of criminals, who are a cowardly and superstitious lot...
*** And then his first foray as Batman - stopping a trio of burglars - he nearly screws that up as well (one very nearly fell to his death). Then again, this is an origin story: He has to start learning how to ''be'' The Batman...
*** It culminates in his saving an old lady from an oncoming truck. This leads him to get trapped in an abandoned building where he only narrowly manages to escape. After that Batman decides it's time to stop screwing up.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The plot point of the Gotham city police dropping a bomb on a building from a helicopter seems like the sort of outlandish thing you could only expect from a Frank Miller comic book, [[http://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2015/05/13/406243272/im-from-philly-30-years-later-im-still-trying-to-make-sense-of-the-move-bombing?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=20170513 but it actually happened in Philadelphia two years before the comic was released.]]

** The implication is made that Barbara knows who he is as well: she met Bruce at the same as Jim, sees him without his motorcycle helmet as he promises to save her son, and arrived at the bridge in time to see the conversation between the two.

* AuthorAppeal: Catwoman starts out as a prostitute. Yup, it's a Creator/FrankMiller comic, alright. Distressingly, Holly is also one, and she's only thirteen, if that. Bruce himself is more than a little disturbed by that.
** This is one of the few parts of the book that has NOT remained in continuity, and was made so almost immediately. However, retcon over retcon has actually led it to be the foundation of her post-Crisis character in certain ways.

This comic heavily influenced ''Film/BatmanBegins'' and VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins took some elements from it. In 2011, [[WesternAnimation/BatmanYearOne an animated adaptation]] in the WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies line was released; the adaptation is almost word-for-word.
