I want to see a comparative graph/chart/plot that shows Batman's career and all his various Robins vs. Clark and Lois' engagement, marriage, and child.

Especially since the current Bats is supposed to be the N52 version, while the current Supes is the Post-Crisis, Byrne one imported from the previous universe.

That's my point. People are referring to events that either changed or were erased in the switch.

Batman was always weirdly both, wasn't he? His new 52 reboot was way softer than everyone else's up until Zero Year kind of maybe replaced Year One, and now they seem to be oscillating on which one of those is still canonical.

Batmanís N52 reboot was one of the hardest because it took like, several decades of bat-history and condensed it down to cliffnotes that only spanned a 5 year window. Like, basically every Robin only got one years worth of being Robin. Itís kind of insane. Also, like none of the Batgirls happened.

But technically, all the N52 characters are their pre-flashpoint selves, itís just that Dr Manhattan did weird timey wimpy stuff, and stole like a decade plus of their lives rather than it being an alternate reality, and people just like, magically remember what their old lives were when prompted. Itís a clusterfuck

Wait, that's STILL going on? Wasn't DC Rebirth a 2015 event?

DC launched Doomsday Clock, a sequel to the critically acclaimed Watchmen graphic novel. Doomsday Clock is pretty much John's attempt at recapturing feel of the original comic in the DCU without understanding that Superman, Batman, and all the other heroes would pretty much trivialize the political conflict.

Batman is canonically a crazy kidnapper who doesn't care for the safety of his wards

That's also a different Batman. Possibly the same one as Dark Knight Returns, but I don't know if anyone besides Frank Miller has confirmed it.

As a 36 year old, I cannot imagine being physically fit enough for regular Batmanning.

I also would not trust anyone younger to be emotionally mature enough for Batmanning.

Batman is a paradox.

Is Batman emotionally mature, though?

Somehow I find it reaffirming that people are ok with a Batman who's pushing 40 and beyond. Thanks for voting!
