* Of course, the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] and [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] versions didn't have this problem, people had shorter lifespans back then, but the thought that Bruce was all alone with no family after his parents' murder is strange in modern times.

** One of the groups the Nazis wanted to eliminate were the mentally ill. Not surprising at all that their partnership fell apart.

** In this Troper's opinion, The Joker's scheme in this film is way more sociopathic and anarchic than the one perpetrated by Heath Ledger's incarnation in The Dark Knight.

** Not entirely sure how this qualifies as Fridge... well, anything, really. That is the entire point of that scene, as well as a joke about the absurd amount of cosmetic product used on TV personalities prior to going on camera.

!! Examples from Batman the Series (1960s) !!!FridgeLogic * In "The Thirteenth Hat" the Commissioner reported that there had been "Three more hats stolen right out from under our noses...not to mention their owners." How exactly did he know the hats had been stolen? We saw the kidnappings and the people were alone at the time. Did the Commissioner just notice that there were no hats left behind after the kidnapping and assume they'd been stolen rather than just left on the kidnap victims' heads? !! General

* Superman's portrayal in TheDarkKnightReturns is one of the most frequently criticized parts of the story. Most people see Superman being a government agent as wildly out of character. But it actually makes perfect sense. In the story Superman has the (then) modern characterization, which is a totally non-offensive flag waving boy scout who followed strict rules of goodness. Miller very easily finds the flaw in that interpretation, which is that a Superman who is above all a great law abiding citizen and patriot would do exactly what the President told him to do. Even Superman fighting in the Corto Maltese is in line with his participation in World War II. Furthermore, in his characterizations of Batman and the Joker Miller went back to their earliest stories, where Batman was even more violent than he was in TDKR and Joker was a serial killer with an ironic nickname. Miller may have done the same thing with Superman but in a different way. Superman's 1938 characterization actually had a lot in common with Batman as portrayed in the story. He crippled people, he threatened to murder them, he psychologically tortured them, he did whatever it took to get the job done. Miller's Superman began his career in his original characterization and experienced the same BadassDecay that the mainstream version did. That would explain why Batman has zero respect for him, he softened up and forgot what he was supposed to be.

Natter. First bit, he's not talking about an individual scale — he's not saying that he's killing Bob so that Bob doesn't cease to exist; he's saying he's killing Bob so that the world as a whole doesn't cease to exist.
** So...he kills people in order to save them from CessationOfExistence? Unless he's convinced there is an afterlife in the comics world, that still comes off as pretty icky. [[FridgeHorror Wait]]...Does this mean that comic-book characters have souls, but ''we'' don't?! ** So you're saying that [[Film/AFewGoodMen he has a greater responsibility than Batman can possibly fathom. Batman weeps for the innocents and curses the lawbreakers. He has that luxury. He has the luxury of not knowing what Joker knows, that the deaths of the innocents, while tragic, probably saves lives. And Joker's existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to Batman, saves lives!]]

** [[{{Othello}} Now who else does that remind you of?]] That's right, the Joker is a modern-day, MonsterClown version of Iago.

* ''[[Film/{{Batman}} Batman (1989)]]'' comes within days, perhaps even just ''hours'' of a Class 0. SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's [[DoNotAdjustYourSet televised]] BrandX stunt had an entire major city too terrified to clean their bodies, or their clothes, or the ''buildings''... An entire city yanked back to TheDungAges.
