Fridge / The Dark Knight Strikes Again

Fridge Brilliance

  • Making Dick Grayson a sociopathic killer actually makes sense when you see how he was treated in All-Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder.
    • Loops back into Fridge Logic when compared with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, 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 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Bruce is regretting his prior treatment with a slightly nostalgic / Old Shame view. In this, after he murdered several friends and brutalized Catgirl, Bruce just let his anger and old hatred out.

Fridge Logic

  • Batman claims Arkham degenerated into anarchy and cannibalism five years before DK2. Looked perfectly fine (although staffed by a certain celebrity psychologist) in TDKR, three years back.
    • That was not the asylum in TDKR. It was "Arkham Home for the Emotionally Disturbed."

How well does it match the trope?
