* Making [[spoiler: Dick Grayson]] a sociopathic killer actually makes sense when you see how he was treated in ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder''.
** Loops back into FridgeLogic when compared with ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'', though, where Bruce's internal monologues referencing Dick are vastly softer than Bruce's comments in this book, despite the events Bruce spitefully references predating the previous book.
*** Easily explained. In ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'', Bruce is regretting his prior treatment with a slightly nostalgic / OldShame view. In this, after he murdered several friends and brutalized Catgirl, Bruce just let his anger and old hatred out.
