    The latest version (which I assume is the current canon version?) in the 80th anniversary special is pretty good IMO.

    spoilers:
    Bruce basically acts like Batjerk, but it turns out that he wanted to push Dick away a little bit so that Dick would get the chance to spread his wings and become his own man. But even with Bruce's push, the decision is 100% Dick's.
    end of spoilers

    I believe that to be an extension of the original.

    Kinda has the flavor the excuse made in "The Cheshire Contract" - I can't recall if the actual original had any intent by Bruce. I strongly prefer it not to. I don't like Bruce pulling those strings or any sense guiding Dick to it. I like it as a completely independent adult decision in no sense Bruce's choice. It weakens the theme if it's "guided" by a parental figure, or really anyone at all but Dick.
