    Burton's Batman and BTAS are at the very core of my memories. I guess I have to be biased though I'd like to think I'd be open to something I like better. But my favorite thing is how Bruce isn't about being a good actor, those scenes with Vicki and those lighter Bruce joke moments from the show stick out to me.

    My favorite comics often have him as all business, but I think Grant and Milligan from that same era really had it best.

    I like a Batman is who is Hell on Wheels when it comes to whomping up on bad guys, but isn't a SOB to this own family, that he can be a nightmare to bad guys but a Dad to Damian.

    I will agree with this. In fact I would say this Batman was basically what early TAS was based on. He was a character who wasn't so hyper competent to the point where he wouldn't make mistakes. I don't see this Batman to be the same guy who would make contingency plans to take down his friends because he secretly doesn't trust them.

    Pretty much anything from Batman: Brave and the Bold to The Dark Knight Returns.

    BTAS had the best characterization because they could pick his best traits and stories without being bogged by continuity. Glad we have that and the 70's 80' comics as well.

    The comically serious Bat-Dad forever frustrated that everyone else is brightly colored and loud.

    Seriously though, I don't need him to smile. He's fun because he's so serious and dramatic. I just don't need him to be an abusive jerk or at the center of attention in every gathering just because his book sells a million more copies than everyone else.

    This, too!

    This sounds like the approach for TNBA, which I enjoyed, quite frankly.
    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.
