** Damian Wayne, Franchise/{{Batman}}'s son, was initially intended to die after his first storyline, and was widely disliked by fans for his bad attitude and violent behavior. He was then made into the new Robin, and became the co-headliner of the immensely popular ''[[Comicbook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman and Robin]]'' series. He has since developed a sizable fanbase, and ''Batman and Robin'' continues to be a strong seller. He was even briefly added to the ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' as part of a stunt to raise the title's sagging sales. [[spoiler:This still didn't stop his creator from going through with his original plans and finally killed him.]]

He ''does'' shown the ramifications this though, as Batman goes through an even more brutal and perhaps even psychotic phase that only improves after Damian is brought back, which took a year in real life.]]

** The Batplane locks perfectly onto the Joker, yet none of the bullets touch him as he stands completely still. The film makes no attempt to explain why this happened.

[[note]]The simplest explanation is that the Batwing wasn't designed to hit a man-sized target given where the weapons are placed.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: The Batmobile entering cocoon mode and leaving a bomb at the Axis Chemicals facility, outright killing a number of people with the explosion, may come off as terrorism rather than heroism.

** Through they all have one thing in common - in all the stories told Batman dies because he refuses to (or maybe cannot?) give up. [[spoiler: When he finally dies for real, he is reborn on another Earth, as infant Bruce Wayne, to one day become Batman once again.]]

* WTHCostumingDepartment: The armor worn by [[spoiler:James Gordon]] in ''ComicBook/DCYou'', with its ''Film/{{Chappie}}'' ears. It was even mocked in-universe.

* CaptainObviousReveal: Bruce Wayne is Batman. This isn't revealed until over halfway into the movie, but ''come on''.

** Notably, The Dark Age of Comic Books may have revitalized interest in the show as a backlash against all the grimdarkness. Batman: The Brave and the Bold was something of a love letter to both the show and Silver Age DC comics, and even included episodes written by Paul Dini, who had done plenty of serious work for the comparatively serious Batman: The Animated Series. Also, DC Comics debuted Batman '66, which treats the TV show as an alternate universe, in 2013 to modest success and critical praise.

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: When dealing with who is the most popular villain outside of the big four (Riddler, Penguin, Joker, and Catwoman), King Tut is considered one of the best answers. Between Victor Buono's passion and hamminess with the role, having some amazing lines, and his characterization and backstory as someone genuinely insane rather than a normal criminal mastermind like most other villains, Tut is an incredibly entertaining villain. Buono having loved his role helps, as he loved it to the point where Tut was the only villain outside of the big four to appear in all three seasons.

** Another memetic badass is Alfred Pennyworth, BattleButler extraordinaire. BewareTheBatman seems to have caught on to this, turning Alfred into a JasonStatham {{expy}}.
