** The thing with that viewpoint is, due to a confusing mix of ComicBookTime and {{Retcon}}s, he more or less ''would'' have been eighteen by the time the flashback in ROTJ would have taken place. WordOfGod says that it takes place after the end of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. Batman was with the League for at least a period of five years (judging by references to the passing of time within the series) and Tim was thirteen years old during ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]''. So... by the time Tim left Bruce, he would have been legally an adult. Heck, Tim was even made to look and sound older in appearances after the production of ROTJ (for example, he was supposedly the same age as [[WesternAnimation/StaticShock Static/Virgil Hawkins]] during their crossover episodes together). Barbara does mention that he went out on his own as soon as left... perhaps he tried solo crime-fighting for a little while, or maybe he even went straight ahead with working on a career. Who knows?

** Bruce made a lot of noise while playing along, so basically it seems like his plan was to noisily "resist" while appearing on the brink until someone in the hospital noticed the ruckus and came to see what was up and "rescue" him.

** Makes sense, except the only way he could have played along any more was to actually jump. He was right at the open window when the nurse came in to stop him. What was the plan if that didn't happen? Him not jumping would have rendered the ruse completely pointless.

** Suppose you lost your leg (prosthetic legs for the Olympics are said to help you run faster than real legs now). No matter how good the replacement is, even if it's better, it's still just a replacement. Wouldn't you rather have your real leg, than a replacement?

* Why is Terry so mean and angry in Static Shock? The Terry in that crossover acts nothing like the Terry in Batman Beyond. He would constantly fuss at Static whenever he messes up. You could say he was hanging around Bruce too long, but he doesn't have to act EXACTLY like Bruce.

** He kissed Melanie twice in that episode, but he didn't start a relationship with her again. In fact, she seems to want to, and he tells her that's not an option anymore. Still cheating, but not as bad as carrying on 2 relationships at once. Still wrong, but he's a teenager -- not exactly uncommon.

** I don't think it would be much of a stretch to assume his opponents see a guy who seems to be talking to someone who's not there, so they conclude, "He's talking to someone back in his MissionControl on a radio or phone." It's not exactly a rare thing in their world. Hey, it's not even all that rare in our world -- we've all seen someone in a café or on the subway who seemed to be talking to himself, only for him to turn and reveal the Bluetooth stuck in his ear. If I were a villain, I would see nothing about Batman communicating with some home base during battle. (It's what plenty of regular soldiers do in battle, after all.)

Added DiffLines:

** He let customers use a dangerous device that he knew physically harmed its users. Worse, said customers were minors. It's analogous both to selling a new drug without approval from the FDA and failing to get parental consent for a dangerous procedure on minors (even piercing a minor's ear without parental consent is against the law).


Added DiffLines:

** Max states her motive as "I needed a hobby, and it beats macramé." Personally, I think she must have been attracted to Batman on some level for this to occur to her as an interesting hobby, but that's neither canonical nor necessary. She thought searching for Batman's identity would be fun -- no further explanation is needed.
