* HarsherInHindsight: The 1994 ''Batman/Spawn''[[note]]also written by Frank Miller[[/note]] crossover had Batman riled up at Spawn's lethal methods, vexing him to the point where he chucked a batarang in Spawn's face when Spawn asked to shake hands. At the time it was understandable; in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' and ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'' he never used lethal force. After his child abusing, cop-killing antics in ''All Star Batman'' his attitude towards Spawn killing seems flat out hypocritical.

However, it's completely in line with Miller, as Spawn ''asks'' Batman why ''not'' kill her - and Batman can't think of anything. FacePalm.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatAnIdiot: Had Green Lantern had a brain cell in his head, he'd have dismissed Batman's offer to meet him at a time and place of ''his specification'', and just captured him then and there with the power ring on his own terms.

** Neo-Nazi woman with swastika pasties standing guard outside a motel door. It's ''supposed'' to be a ContinuityNod to an extra that appeared in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' but [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight ...Yeah, it's just too weird to work.]]

** The love scene between Batman and Black Canary also count. In the story, they have make out while keeping their mask on. The scene might be Squick, sexy, or even outright funny to some people. Fast forward three years later, Batman and Catwoman have SEX with their mask on. The scene is [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/3372244.html?#cutid1 here]] if you want to check it out (NSFW)

** As [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] pointed out, FrankMiller once said he considered Batman the most pure and good of all DC superheroes. Fast forward to this comic and suddenly we have the Goddamn Batman [[SlasherSmile smirking gleefully]] as he slams the Batmobile into cops, abducts Dick Grayson, [[RunningGag Age Twelve]], and generally runs around acting so brutally out of character Linkara dubs him 'Crazy Steve' because even Batman In Name Only is still ''too much'' like Batman.

** A ''lot'' of events in the comic go nowhere and have no importance to anything except for {{Padding}}. Black Canary, Catwoman, Batgirl, Vicki Vale, Jimmy Olsen, and the Justice League, all feature in the series, but across ten issues they each get about two or three scenes in which they do little, if anything, of relevance. It's particularly egregious because the series is ''supposed'' to be about Batman and Robin, but Miller keeps cutting away to other characters.



* CrackPairing: Batman and Black Canary
* CrazyAwesome: What a lot of Batman's actions appear to be intended as.

* DesignatedHero: Batman. He's psychotic, unstable, and an-all round {{Jerkass}}. He kidnaps the twelve year old Dick Grayson, age twelve, forces him to live in the Batcave alone (and expects him to hunt the rats and bats in there for food), and then complains about having him around and physically assaults him. And he goes out on patrol laughing about how awesome he is as he gleefully poisons criminals, sets them on fire, and kicks them through car windshields, and while it isn't outright stated, the obvious FridgeHorror is that it's unlikely any of these crooks survive. For some reason, readers are supposed to like him.

** The close up on Vicki Vale's panties reveal that the design is that of a Bat. This, much like Vicky Vale herself, has no real importance to anything.

** When Dick Grayson, age twelve, is huddling alone in the Batcave, his shadow cast on the floor forms an "R." In case one of the five people in the world who ''don't'' know that Dick becomes Robin picks up the comic and wonders who the kid is.
