* DesignatedHero: Batman. He's psychotic, unstable, and an-all round {{Jerkass}}. He kidnaps the twelve year old Dick Grayson, age twelve, after saving him from {{DirtyCop}}s that were about to kill the boy. Though that doesn't excuse how he forces Grayson to live in the Batcave alone (and expects him to hunt the rats and bats in there for food), and then complains about having Dick around and physically assaults him. He goes out on patrol laughing about how awesome he is as he gleefully poisons criminals, sets them on fire, and attacks a lot of police officers(who are possibly dirty but never clarified if they are); while it isn't outright stated, FridgeHorror implies many of them don't survive their encounters. And he thinks that if he had a power ring like Green Lantern, he would use it to enforce his will on the world and exile Superman from Earth. For some reason, readers are supposed to like him.

** This is lessened in full context when you remember the sequence with rescuing Grayson. Some of the policemen on duty were actually corrupt and trying to kill Grayson out right. Batman, didn't know which ones were in on it but took Grayson away from several policemen who were actually going to attempt the act. And while Batman was cruel and ruthless about his treatment of Grayson and his casualness about killing, he mainly attacked criminals through out the story.

* StealthParody: Some people speculate the comic is intended as this. Though debatable, once you read the comic it is possible to see where they're coming from. Everything is so over the top, edgy, dark, etc. that it's kind of hard to take seriously. The fact that Frank Miller has proven long ago [[ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns that he can write the caped crusader very well]] also leads people to think he was trying to write a parody. The fact that he's also wrote stuff like ''ComicBook/HolyTerror'' just blurs things further.

** Similarly Wonder Woman's insanely out-of-character behavior has caused some to declare that she's actually [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall a deranged mental patient named Bonkers Betty who's stolen a Wonder Woman costume from a convention and is impersonating her.]]

** 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 ... Yeah, it's just too weird to work.

*** This is acknowledged in the comic itself. Dick mentions how Batman taught him that a hood would limit his line of sight. But Damian proves that, having been trained from a far younger age than Dick, he can fight perfectly fine with the hood.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Frank Miller has become so obsessed with making Batman "better" than the police or any other superhero, that he's stopped caring about making Batman actually do anything [[DesignatedHero heroic]].
** During the story, 12 year old Dick Grayson's, age twelve, face is on a Milk Carton... While he's ''still being driven to the Batcave'', meaning that either the trip takes several days, or Batman's car drove into a time warp.
** The Batcave has a wall of weapons that Batman in any normal story would never use, including guns in it. That's all.
*** The axe that [[RunningGag Dick Grayson Age 12]] picks up has a blade shaped like Batman's logo. This means that it wasn't just seized from another criminal or even bought off the shelf, ''Batman had it custom made.''
** Other superheroes such as Black Canary, Plastic Man, and Wonder Woman appear in the comic, and Frank Miller writes them all as psychotic murderers with no regard for who their mainstream counterparts are.
